Okay, so I'm here today to talk about an amazing book by an amazing author! LOVE UNDER CONSTRUCTION by Danyelle Ferguson. This type of sweet, comedic romance is right up my alley!

A bit about LOVE UNDER CONSTRUCTION: Charlee was angry . . .

What do you do when your boss makes someone else the lead on a big renovation project that should rightfully be yours? You quit. On second thought, that might not be the best idea, but Charlee Jackson has never been one for second thoughts. Instead, she lands a big contract of her own. She’s jumping into her new life—work boots, tool belt and all. Now she just needs to form a company and hire contractors and buy supplies and get an office . . . and not fall in love with her former boss's son. Yeah. Definitely not that last one.

Peter was torn . . .

You can’t date someone who works for you, but now that his dad let Charlee walk out the door, Peter Elliot is considering his options. Charlee was their top renovation expert, his best friend’s sister, and the only thing that made the drudgery of running a large construction business bearable. But how do you date a competitor, especially one your father is trying to drive out of business? It would be stupid to make your dad angry right before he retires and hands the company over to you. Right?

When Charlee and Peter are scheduled to work on the same Indulgence Row house, their feelings and priorities are put to the test. They need to make a choice, and they better be quick about it, because the whole mixture is curing fast and threatening to crumble to pieces.


This book is a clever blend of construction, comedy, and romance. Be sure to pick up your copy today! You won't regret it.

My review: I haven't read Book 1 in the Indulgence Row series (yet!), but I bought it and it's waiting for me on my Kindle for when I need a perfect escape. (You can get it here too -- it's free!) Because that's what LOVE UNDER CONSTRUCTION is. The perfect escape for anyone who enjoys a happy ending. And kissing. :)

The thing I loved most about LOVE UNDER CONSTRUCTION is the characterization. Danyelle is a master at this, putting in little things that do so much to build a character into a real person. I was actually taking notes, because Charlee and Peter felt so real to me!

I loved Charlee's dedication to getting every detail just right. I enjoyed that something as simple as her cell phone notification was so detailed. And that it said something about Charlee. I liked Peter's strength in standing up to his father and her brother, but also his softer side when it came to specific conflicts.

The setting is masterfully done--I want a shop on Indulgence Row so I can write and sell books! And I don't know if Danyelle is a carpenter (I'm guessing she's not!), but I loved the handy aspect of this novel. I do love men that work with their hands, and carpenters are no different.

LOVE UNDER CONSTRUCTION has a heroine worth cheering for. One who's strong, business-minded, and willing to work hard to get what she wants. And the hero is equally likeable. Throw in a great plot, and a killer setting, and you've got a romance worth cheering for.

I give it 5 stars!

I'm so glad you enjoyed Charlee and Peter. =) And nope, I'm definitely not a carpenter, but I can be really handy with fixing things . . . when I need/want to be. LOL. I really enjoyed your write up about LUC. Thank you so much, Elana!
