He's the hottest handyman on TV, but he only has eyes for his best friend.

Kit Carlyle isn’t just some woman. Beautiful? Yep. Seductive? Damn straight. She’s also my best friend and my co-worker. But, hell, I’m a guy with a pulse. Every once in a while, I look at her and think filthy things.

But when her cousin dies and leaves her with a long as hell and sexy bucket list, Kit turns to me for a helping hand. What can I say? I’m a sucker for a woman in need. Besides, I’m not about to let another man steal away my girl, occupy her bed, or fill my shoes.

But as the stakes get higher and the items become hotter, I’ll have to face the toughest challenge of all: admitting I want more than Kit’s friendship. I want to make her mine.

Nailed Down is book one in the Nailed Down series by USA Today bestselling author Chelle Bliss and Eden Butler. A friends to lovers romance with heat, heart, and a happy ending!

    Well written and enjoyable.
  • Lame

    By straighttalker198
    There wasn’t enough details, juicy, basic and needed details. The story lacked because of the missing details. The book wasn’t as energetic and exciting as the summary seemed. They only slept together once, there wasn’t much chemistry. The guy was a grumpy, possessive, rude old man and the girl had no character.

    This was a very enjoyable story full of sexual tension. Kane is a full-on alpha, but every so often a hint of vulnerability would come through, which I loved. Kit was sweet, and she and Kane had great chemistry. The story flowed well, and the pace was good. It was low on the drama scale, but overall, a very satisfying read.
  • 4.5 Stars for Nailed Down!

    I really enjoyed this book - I didn’t think I would like a book about someone doing a bucket list but these two authors really know how to write a good book! Kit’s best friend and cousin dies, leaving her a bucket list to complete because she knows Kit really needs to get out there and live. She gives her these challenges in which Kit decides to ask her other best friend, Kane,to help her with. These two are stars on a DIY show together… not going to lie, at first, I had a hard time understanding exactly what they did but it gets a little more clear going forward. Kane is actually in love with Kit, but in typical guy fashion, doesnt think they will be good together. Kit has some feelings for him as well and sparks fly when they complete this bucket list together. I will say the thing that kept me from 5 stars was that Kane was always saying “my friend Kit”… I get maybe he was trying to remind himself that she needed to be a friend and nothing more, but it was a bit off-putting. However, these two had major chemistry and lit up the pages! It’s a great story of two people falling in love (or even more in love) through unusual circumstances. You will melt over Kane and cheer for Kit to get her man and finish that list.

    What to do when your best friend hands you her bucket list and it includes things that only you should be doing to her? But you don't want to mess up your relationship? Kit and Kane try to ignore their attraction to each other, Kane more than Kit. With Kit's bucket list, Kane either has to watch the women he wants fall in love with another man or finally open up to the possibility of their relationship. I love these two together and all of the adventures that they go on during this book. The side characters were awesome and I can't wait to read Kiel's story next. I received an ARC and voluntary reviewed it.
  • Great new series

    Chelle Bliss Ams Eden Butler are both automatic one click authors for me, so I was so excited that they collaborated for Nailed Down. This book didn’t dissapointed, it was amazing!! This is Kit and Kane’s story. They are coworkers and friends. When Kit is tasked with a bucket list after the death of her cousin, she enlist Kane to help. Kit and Kane have amazing chemistry, but are they ready to risk their friendship and working relationship? I loved this book and hope to see many more Bliss and Butler collaborations!!!
