2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Built to Last by Aurora Rey (122-06-03-2016)

A good and simple read, I have enjoyed this book. The characters are well developed and the story is believable and sweet. I liked a lot how some cliché have been avoided about a working in construction woman or how a girly girl should act. Refreshing.

W hen Olivia hires Joss to do the renovations on her new home, the sparks fly, in more ways than one. It turns out both women have a lot to learn about life, love, and the meaning of home.
