Blog Tour: Review of Renovated by Nikki Kiley

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
They’ve been hired to remodel a mansion. Will they end up getting a room?
Marisa Sanchez has grand designs for her future. After taking over her grandfather’s construction firm, the successful vlogger and civil engineer is about to take the next step with a new show on the Home Design Network. But she’s not pleased to find out she can only have the lucrative gig if she agrees to work with a handsome rival.
Levi Chance takes the responsibility of providing for his brothers seriously. So when his biggest client asks him to come into the spotlight to co-host a new program, he reluctantly accepts. But he fears the pretty, camera-loving partner he’s been assigned might bring his top-notch reputation tumbling down if she can’t deliver the goods.
Discovering her teammate is quite capable, Marisa battles her attraction to him as she ambitiously turns the project upside down. And the more Levi works with the smart Latina, the more he worries he’s about to push the “no sex” morality clause in their contract into forbidden territory.
Will Marisa and Levi’s fixer-upper turn into a happily together forever?
Renovated is the charming first book in the moving Chance Brothers contemporary romance series. If you like sparkling attractions, comedic moments, and steamy action, then you’ll love Nikki Kiley’s well-built romp.


My thoughts:

Renovated involves Levi and Marisa.  Two people who are forced to work together and who have a lot at stake.  Marisa is running her grandfather's business and this TV show could be the break she needs to save her grandmother's hair salon from being made into condos.  For Levi, it will give his family business even more exposure. They just have to fight their attraction.

I thought this was a cute and steamy romance.   I loved Levi from the start.  I loved his loyalty to his brothers and his drive to keep his business successful.  Marisa did take me a while to warm up to.  I didn't like how she was so defensive in the beginning.  But, she did eventually grow on me. I grew to like her even more after learning her tragic back story.  I enjoyed watching them fall in love.  The story was also enhanced by the peripheral characters.  Levi's brothers were fun and I loved their bond.  I do recommend trying this one out.
