Cost of Repairs

Samuel Briggs moved to small-town Stratton, Pennsylvania, to escape his tragic past and try to start over. When he's not out walking his beat as a police officer, all he wants is peace, a manageable routine, and time to fix up his newly-purchased project home. And Samuel absolutely does not have room in his new routines for a relationship. Except a chance encounter with a handsome diner cook unexpectedly shakes his resolve.

Rey King lives for his work as a short-order cook, part-time hardware salesman, and full-time handyman. He’s in debt up to his eyeballs, so he isn’t looking for complications. And the gorgeous blond cop who comes to Rey’s rescue is a complication he definitely doesn’t need. Lucky for him, Samuel feels the same way.

But what starts as an afternoon of no-strings sex inevitably complicates itself, as the two men learn how deeply each other’s emotional damage goes. When Rey is seriously injured protecting a friend, their already shaky foundation cracks a little more. Samuel barely pulled his life back together after his first lover's death and falling in love again isn't part of his recovery plan. He knows renovations are always a gamble, but this one isn't about risking money—it's about Samuel risking his heart.

NOTE: This book was previously published under the same title. This new edition has been lightly edited to address minor continuity problems, but the overall story is the same.

    Closer to 3.5 stars probably. Rey and Sam were gems and portrayed very realistically. Their relationship developed slowly and naturally, and the bedroom (etc.) scenes were hot. However, about halfway ...

    3.5 starsThis was a completely character driven story until the very end. The drama at the end was unnecessary and brought down my rating by half a star. I liked both MCs and the POV switches were don...

    Not sure where it went wrong? It started off really strong but somewhere along the way it lost me and started to drag. Even though it didn't work for me I would actually still recommend it. The writ...

    Although this story was set in Pennsylvania, it had a somewhat Southern feel to me. Whether it was the name of the Café where Rey works, Dixie’s Cup (Dixie, the owner, was a force to recon, by the ...

    My most lasting impression after reading this book: Too much drama.I love it when characters have a dark past and stuff to work through, but Sam and Rey's story was one shipload of skeletons in the cl...
