Building Love is the story of a man who moves every few years to a new city to flip a house that he desires and then moves on. He is not able to settle down and works just so that he can afford to re-build old houses (this being his true passion). When he moves to a new town he meets a wonderful woodworker and they develop a relationship.
I loved that the story was over around a year, not instant anything, and that each of the lead males had their own issues with this new love. I also really loved Mac, great addition. The story was cleanly written, well done, flowed beautiful and was full of wonderful emotions. I immediately connected to the characters and was rooting for them the entire time. I truly believe that this is Elaine’s best work and any reader will enjoy their time in this world. It just lightened my heart and satisfied my craving for love. I received an ARC and am leaving a voluntary review.
The story take place in a small Minnesotan town called Oak Hill. One of the main characters moves there to flip an old mansion as he really likes the wooden window frames on the kitchen window. He then hires the other main character to build him wooden bookshelves and they just can't keep their hands to themselves and start sleeping together.
Their relationship is going strong when suddenly it's called to test with a sudden job offer from out of town firm. The other can't imagine moving anywhere from the town he has lived his whole live in and the other hasn't stayed in one place for more than couple of years in his life..
Finally love wins and there is a cute kitten in the book as well! Who could say no to that? <3
What I liked about the book is the storyline itself. It moves along wonderfully and there is just right amount of sex involved to make it a hot read! I also liked that once the MCs get together their life is not just perfect all of a sudden but they face obstacles but somehow manage to conquere them and move on even stronger than before.
I was given an Arc of the book in return of the honest review.
The chemistry between the MCs was great, and the initial get-together scene was so well done. Towels dropping, sudden heat, holy moses. I absolutely adored Devin, but I had a harder time relating to Andre. He seemed a little self-centred. Both guys had problems understanding each other's work lives but Andre in particular seemed to have really unrealistic expectations about what was possible. I was also really bothered by the fact that he never mentioned his plans to move away within a year or two, and in their big blow up, didn't seem to understand that he'd basically been leading Devin on with that major omission.
Despite that, this was an entertaining read with a pretty satisfying resolution. I loved the small-town setting and as much as I love this author's new adult books, I tend to gravitate more to characters with a little more life experience so that was very appealing too.

Elaine builds a story that is well developed and has the right amount of sweetness, angst and sparks. Another one to add to your TBR pile...I look forward to exploring more by this author.
