My first read by author Nikky Kaye and it was a great short erotic story about upper class Sarah, meeting blue collar worker Chris when he comes to help renovate her bathroom. This was hot and funnier than I was expecting, which really added to my enjoyment of this steamy romp. I also enjoyed how the message of "don't judge a book by its cover" came across in the writing, in terms of how Sarah judged Chris. That said I did judge this book by its cover, which did nothing for me and gave me pre-convinced ideas that the content wouldn't be professional, so shame on me as it was exceptionally well written. Had I not been offered an ARC via FSSG on Goodreads, based on the cover alone I'd never have picked this book up, and I'd have missed out on a great read. I'd happily read more by Kaye. Recommended read if you're looking for something heavy on the humour and heat and aren't as bothered with the romance side of a relationship.

Do it yourself is the first book I have read by this author but it certainly won't be my last.
I really enjoyed reading this fun,sexy and delightful novella.
It screams don't judge a book by it's cover and that certainly hit home in this novella.
Sarah is a recently divorced lady in her late thirties who's confidence amongst other things had hit an all time low.
She decided to do some DIY on her house to cheer herself up and brighten her beige life.
Her therapist recommend a handyman and things are set to brighten up.
In walks 20 something Chris who would give Chris Hemsworth a run for his money and things start brightening up for Sarah.
Chris teaches her lots of new skills and reminds her of a few she's forgotten in recent years.
This novella is fast paced,passionate and will want you throwing pens at the wall regarding The Dick.who I really wanted to slap.
I really enjoyed reading this book and I'm glad I gave this author a chance as I definitely wasn't disappointed.

Do It Yourself is an erotic story about a recently divorced woman. I like the character and at the same time I don’t, which makes her human.
Being happy to live off the money of her ex husband is not an admirable quality but then she does make a stab at DIY.
I found the conversation between her and the handyman she hires to help with the DIY absolutely excruciating and the result of that initial conversation stimulating (again, think DIY)
I love the wit and one liners.
The text message exchange after she has a few drinks is a great comic scene and something many readers could relate with. I know I did.
I do think the remaining twenty pages or so rushed, particularly with the inevitable fall out and the two reuniting for a happy ending.
DIY, the unrelenting theme throughout the story, is a four star read.
( I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review )

My first book from this author and it defiantly won't be the last!
A quick hot read that you can read it one sitting!

We have Sarah that isn't happy with how her home is, after being in a lackluster marriage she wants to spice it up a little.
She decides she wants to redecorate her bathroom but when she realises that she's biten off more than she can chew she needs help.
Her theripst recommends someone to help.

Chris - the handyman was basically everything Sarah didn't want really.
He's not her type at all but she can't help herself.

I can't wait to read more from this author!

❤💋

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT VOICE - GREAT READ 27 Sept. 2016
By Julia Mae - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have to give this thoroughly enjoyable read 5 stars just because Nikki Kaye is so damn much fun to read! As soon as Sarah started talking, I was hooked. A real life heroine - screwed up in ways we can relate to. Not weak and wimpy, just standing on the precipice of self-knowledge. A scary place to be.

The characters are very nicely developed for a novella, the character arc complete and believable, and I love Chris. Yes, I said that. I fell for the hero. And not just because he's hot. And can fix plumbing, though that is a huge plus. I fell for him because he just likes her. Because he's a guy, guy, without being a standard-issue Alpha Neanderthal. The dynamic between the two is just right. The author doesn't hit us in the head with it, but lets us discover them as they do each other.

The sex is great and real and hot and funny, kinda like the sex we actually have when it's really good.

I love finding new writers I love to read. This is so well-written, and like all really good writers, you never really notice the writing while you're immersed in the reality she's created. Ms. Kaye is going someplace and I intend to follow.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handyman Makes it All Better 24 Sept. 2016
By candyaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Sarah is a lost divorced 38-year old woman who uses house projects to fill her life. She feels capable while doing small jobs around the house but decides to deconstruct a boring beige bathroom because it reminds her too much of the past. She soon realizes that she is in over her head & closes the door on the bathroom remodel. When she shares her failure with her therapist, the therapist offers a number of 'someone she knows' who can help her. Enter Chris, the younger handyman/contractor to save the day. Sarah is immediately attracted to Chris & fantasizes about him. Has they work in close quarters in the bathroom & get know each to others things heat up. Sarah discovers a lot about herself from her brief encounters with Chris. She learns to have confidence in herself.

This is another really good short story by Nikky Kaye! Well written with a good message & extra dose of steamy hot sex!! The book is for mature readers only. Though I feel there was a serious theme running along the story was still humorful & fun. Any book that can describe on-line dildo shopping as "It was a veritable rainbow of cocks.", is worth a read in my opinion!

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars You must read this! 11 Nov. 2016
By Jasmyn9 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the ultimate handyman romance come to life. There is just so much hot goodness in the little novella that I read it twice - back to back - which is unheard of for me! The witty and pun filled dialog was too good for me to walk away after the first time. And, like a good meatloaf, the seconds were just as good as the firsts.

But this book isn't all fluff and sexiness. Somehow, Nikky Kaye threw a couple little life lessons in there without me even noticing them at first. Sarah has a lot on her plate, and her way of dealing with things is to do them all on her own. I was rather impressed with her home improvement abilities and skill with tools.

But she does run into a project that's just too far beyond her skills and youtube tutorials. So she hires a handyman to show her how to do it. Which I love! He isn't doing it all for her, but teaches her along the way. And he's such a great teacher too!

But handyman Chris isn't exactly what Sarah thinks at first. She jumps to conclusions, feelings get hurt, and everyone comes out of the experience having learned a little lesson. So pick an afternoon and just curl up with Do It Yourself. Tell everyone you're furthering your home improvement methods and tune them out for a couple hours. You won't regret it!
4.0 out of 5 stars I'm so glad that I did 22 Jun. 2017

This was a freebie that I downloaded recently. I'm so glad that I did!
'Do It Yourself' was sweet, sexy, and LMAO funny. The h - Sarah - had an inner voice that was over the top hilarious. There were so many good lines from this book that I had a hard time trying to choose one as an example. So - here's one from the H, Chris, to Sarah's ex husband:
“If you’ll forgive the analogy— you made your bed, now you need to lie in it. It’s not her fault that you stained the sheets with your filthy cheating j***!”
And then, there is the unexpected, priceless, full color emoji...LMAO!!!
There was one misstep though: At the beginning of the story, Sarah mentions her cat; later there is no mention of it. As funny as the story was, I could imagine it being really over the top hilarious with the inclusion of the cat...(Cats are subversively funny).
Anyway, for a book that I had assumed would be a likely DNF, 1-star delete, it was the exact opposite. 4.5 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Do It Yourself 5 Jun. 2017
By Epiphany - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
No disappointment with this one. This is a quick, steamy, sexy, fun read, where I barked laughed a couple of times. Ms Kaye grabbed my attention from the first page all the way to the last. The analogy between DIY of the powder room and Sarah's life had me snickering. I enjoyed this read. I highly recommend this book. I look forward to more from Ms Kaye.
