Nothing might have come of this brief assignment, except that he trips on the wet bathroom floor, and concussed and bleeding he must stay on the floor, head on Zoe's lap until the EMT's arrive.
The result is that two completely different people from completely different lifestyles have a chance get to know and actually like each other. So begins the story of Jake and Zoe.
I was immediately rooting for them, yet appreciating how hard it was for them to accept their growing feelings for each other. After all, Jake had a fiancé and Zoe had all sorts of troubles, family secrets and phobias.
Yes, in the end, guy gets girl, but you will love the journey of these two unlikely lovers.
& the clash of social classes makes it a little deeper than that...an artist hires a handyman to work on her flooded space & they end up falling in love, but the social barriers between them threaten to tear them apart.
The main characters of Jake of all Trades and the successful artist Zoe, are sure to capture the hearts of those looking for a quick and easy read to fill a relaxing afternoon in the sun or for a quiet bedtime diversion. "Her Handyman" is clean...no swearing, no explicit sex scenes...just a lot of fun reading. Great entertainment for the young at heart!
Morgan Mandel does a wonderful job of bringing these characters to life. Jake and Zoe aren't perfect, and life isn't always easy for them. Readers will relate to the real-life issues they need to overcome before finding their happily ever after. If you're looking for a sweet and charming story to read in an afternoon, this is the book for you.
Sandra O'Toole, aka Zoe Carmichael the famous artist, calls Jake, a handyman, to come and fix her toilet. After beginning to fix the leak, her dog startles him and he falls and hits his head on the base of the toilet. While he is out cold, Zoe finds herself falling for this ordinary guy. Maybe it's his body, maybe it's that she is lonely, maybe it's just crazy.
Waiting for the ambulance to arrive, Zoe and Jake begin to talk and find out about each other. She lets on she is the daughter of a famous artist and that she never wants to talk to her father again. He shares that he is engaged to a beautiful lady and is working hard to pay for the wedding. And they share a feeling, although neither says anything out loud.
Over the next few months Jake gets better, but Zoe can't get him out of her mind so she calls every so often just to talk. He should feel guilty, but doesn't. They both want the same thing, they just don't know how much.
After years of hiding from the public, and her father, Jake allows Zoe the opportunity to gain her freedom back.
Not one to spoil a story, I will stop there. However I will let you know that this story, while a cute and easy read, also brings something else to the forefront--you don't always know the truth unless you experience it yourself.
This book conveys the message that being yourself, being honest and not rushing to judgments about people will allow you the happiness you deserve. I recommend this to anyone looking for a quick and enjoyable read.
Life Is a Balance, It isn't only about you
