Can these opposites turn up the heat… without burning down the house?

House-flipping sensation and YouTube star Maggie Nichols can’t wait to dig into her next challenge. Arriving in tiny Kinship, Idaho, with only a cot and a coffeemaker, Maggie is prepared to restore a crumbling Victorian mansion in four months or less. She has her to-do lists, her blueprints, and her team. What she doesn’t have is time for sexy, laid-back landscaper Silas Wright.

The man takes flirtation to a whole new level. And he does it shirtless…sometimes pants-less. He and his service school-dropout dog are impressively persistent. But she’s not interested in putting down roots. Not when fans tune in to watch her travel the country turning dilapidated houses into dream homes. A short-term fling on the other hand could fit nicely into her calendar. After all, Maggie remembers what fun is like. Vaguely.

As their summer gets downright steamy, Silas manages to demolish the emotional walls she’s spent years building, sending Maggie into a panic. He’s the wrench in her carefully constructed plans. With the end of the project looming, she has a decision to make. But how can she stay when her entire career is built on moving on?

I loved this book! Maggie Moves On by Lucy Score is a perfect summer romcom about a house flipper who falls in love with her sexy landscaper. Maggie Nichols has made a life for herself as a You-Tube star flipping houses with her best friend and ex-husband Dean. The two flit from town to town renovating crumbling shacks and turning them into dream homes. Arriving in the small town of Kinship, Idaho to renovate the town’s historical Campbell home, Maggie wanderlust is waning, and she finds she may want to spread her roots.

I love Maggie. She is such a fun character. She flips the script on feminine. Maggie is a force to be reckoned with, stubborn to a fault, loyal, and has an iron wall built around her heart. Her life has been far from perfect, but over the last few years, she’s carved a perfect life for herself. She doesn’t need anyone except for Dean or anything except a hammer and she’ll be happy. Or at least that’s what she thinks.

Then enters Silas Wright. I absolutely love Silas! His POV is hilarious to read. This man is head over heels for Maggie from first sight. He tells his brother he’s met his future wife, she just doesn’t know it yet. He then doggedly pursues a relationship with the ever reluctant Maggie. I love how grounded he is and convicted of his own feelings. While Maggie is someone who overanalyzes and thinks things to death, Silas jumps head first whenever his heart tells him too. And it is telling him to do just that.

While the romance is the clear driver of the plot, a lot of the action revolves around the remodeling of the Campbell home. This once great mansion is filled with town history and a little mystery surrounding the original owners. As Maggie works to bring the house into the current century, more mysteries are uncovered, and there may be a little wild west gold involved 😉

Overall I loved Maggie Moves On. This book is a delight to read. Maggie and Silas are fantastic, and the side characters are wonderfully fleshed out and real. I love Dean and Cody, Maggie’s found family, and Silas’s family is amazing. This is a must-read romantic comedy for your summer enjoyment!
