The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi
Into the chaos of a prolonged drought step Angel Velasquez—a "water knife"; Lucy Monroe, a hardened journalist; and Maria Villarosa, a young migrant, who dreams of escaping north to those places where water still falls from the sky: All three find themselves pawns in a game far bigger, more corrupt and dirtier than any of them could have imagined.

This Old House

Cole Carruthers is the architect for T.C. Limited and somehow he is dispatched to find out what was behind the person objecting to their newest project. The last thing Cole figured on finding is a young and sexy woman with a sledgehammer prepared to do some damage to the historical building. Aubrey Matheson's great aunt owned the house until she sold it to T.C. Limited. Aubrey is in a sticky situation and she needs total access to the house until she gets what she needs to keep a family member's secret safe. Cole decides that there is something about his new "squatter" and goes on a counter attack. Aubrey and Cole discover love and that just because it has always been does not mean it must always stay that way.

"This Old House" is the beginning of the trio of stories, which officially hands the project off to T.C. Limited to bring the great old house back to its prime. Cole isn't happy about having to face the person wanting to cause trouble until he meets Aubrey. Aubrey has reasons to delay the construction on the house anyway she can. However when Cole calls her bluff, Aubrey has trouble keeping on track. I laughed often while following Cole and Aubrey and their fun roundabout way to love. "This Old House" is a great start to the trio of stories.

All About Adam

Adam Thomas is the corporate attorney for the firm. But that has only been his job for a short time. Adam had to walk away from the criminal law that he loved to protect loved ones. For months now Adam has been trying to track down a woman who went for coffee and never came back. Becky Carter just wants to help her sister with the house purchase she made with T.C. Limited. When Adam walks in, Becky wonders if she can stick to business.

Format: Paperback
Hard As Nails by HelenKay Dimon delivers three smoking hot stories in one novella.

This Old House has Cole Carruthers matching wits with Aubrey Matheson. Aubrey has parked herself in a house Cole needs to restore. Aubrey is looking for missing jewels her brother hide there after he stole them. Her attraction to Cole is messing with her concentration. Cole at first wanted Aubrey gone but now he doesn't want to ever let her go.

All About Adam has Adam Thomas confronting his former week long fling Rebecca Carter. Adam hasn't forgotten that week filled with passion. Neither has Becky but she has a client to protect right now and can't afford to be distracted. Adam is pulling out every trick he knows to keep Becky around full time.

Man At The Door is the story of Erin McHugh. Erin is happy to have a home that she can use as a studio and living space. She isn't so happy about the contractor Ray Hammond. Oh he is very qualified to do the job but his hot stares and being much younger then her bother her something fierce. Ray sees something real and special in Erin and will do anything to get her into his bed.

Hard As Nails is another keeper by HelenKay Dimon. Each story has interesting and compelling characters. Their chemistry snaps and sparkles and is smoking hot. Each story blends seamlessly into the next. Kudos.

Format: Paperback
An anthology that takes readers into the lives (and loves) of the characters who were secondary in her earlier novella (Hardhats and Silk Stockings) in the WHEN GOOD THINGS HAPPEN TO BAD BOYS anthology, HelenKay Dimon has written another winner with HARD AS NAILS.

THIS OLD HOUSE
Aubrey Matheson is desperately determined to remain in her aunt's historic home for just a bit longer. Yes, the beautiful old house has been sold and her elderly aunt comfortably settled into a retirement home, but Aubrey has her own secret reason for staying. When Cole Carruthers shows up, he's confident that he'll have Ms. Matheson out on her cute little butt in no time at all. He wasn't counting on her coming at him with a sledgehammer that weighs almost as much as she does. When Aubrey argues that Cole's company took advantage of her poor old aunt and refuses to leave until they make it right, Cole wonders what she's up to. His determination and stubbornness equal hers and he vows to remain in the house with her until she tells him the truth or leaves. What he didn't count on was an undeniable attraction to Aubrey that packs a punch that's more powerful than her sledgehammer.
ALL ABOUT ADAM
After a seven day fling that ended with the disappearance of Rebecca Carter, Adam Thomas has unsuccessfully done everything possible to get in touch with her for the past eight months. When he finds Becky waiting in his firm's conference room to discuss negotiations for her friend's purchase of the historic home he's part owner of, he's excited at the opportunity to reconnect with her. Becky's experience with men hasn't always been pleasant though and despite Adam's dogged resolve to get her back in his life, it won't be easy to get her to drop her guard.

Description from back of book: What's better than a man who's good with his hands? Try a trio of hard-bodied hunks who'll be happy to flip your house, your heart...and anything else you have in mind... This Old House--Architect Cole Carruthers's mission is simple--visit his company's latest rehab project and cajole the sweet old lady who once owned it into vacating the premises. But the sultry, sledge-hammer-wielding woman he finds is far from old, nor particularly sweet. For reasons she won't reveal, Aubrey Matheson refuses to leave the house she claims is her birthright. As far as Cole's concerned, there's only one thing to do with this squatter: hunker down with her and discover every single one of her sexy secrets...

All About Adam--The last meeting tough-as-nails Becky Carter took with sharp-witted, wicked sexy real estate rehabber Adam Thomas culminated in a scorching-hot game of kiss-and-run. Becky was the one running, and she's regretted it ever since. Now Adam's back to do some actual business...or so he says. If Becky has her way, this weekend of negotiation will speed from boardroom to bedroom--and stay there...

Man at the Door--After finding herself famous for all the wrong reasons, artist Erin McHugh just wants to fix up her house, open her art studio, and settle down out of the spotlight. Then job foreman Ray Hammond walks through her door and Erin recognizes broad-shouldered trouble. Hot, young, and always in the news, Ray is everything Erin wanted to avoid. The challenge is how to resist a guy who can build anything, fix anything--and make Erin feel everything...

My View: Hard as Nails tells the story of three men who work together at T.C. Limited.
