Desperate to repair the damage her boss’ dog did to the woman’s home while Addison Montgomery was dog- and house-sitting, Addy calls on Roy’s Rent-A-Hubby. But the man who meets her at Miriam’s front door is nothing like the tool-belt schlepping Roy she’d expected. Sardonic, opinionated and melt-in-your-mouth sexy, her Mr. Fix-it both annoys and arouses Addy.
Unbeknownst to her, Mr. Fix-it’s name isn’t really Roy and he’s only recently taken up the woodworking profession. He’s Noah Pierce, a burned-out stockbroker who’s gone back to the simple life and he thinks Addy is crazy to chase after the hollow goal of traditional success.
Addison has agreed to housesit for her boss while she is on vacation. The job also includes caring for her dog which just happens to be a huge Shepherd Malamute mix that isn’t adapt at leaving things intact when he is in a hurry to go. Fritz had broken part of the handrail on such an occasion and Addison needed it repaired before her boss returned. So what do you do when you need something fixed and fast? You call Rent a Hubby and get a man to take care of the problem without the fuss of having a real husband. When Addison opens the door for her hired help, she can’t believe the incredibly sexy man standing in front of her is her carpenter savior.
