From Amazon:
One girl. Two guys. Who says three's a crowd? When Mandy takes an unusual summer job-in construction-she has to prove she's just one of the guys. But she gets more than she bargains for being the only girl on the job. The mixture of hot guys, sunscreen, raw wood and testosterone proves to be an elixir she can't protect her heart from. Brooding Boston and flirty AJ find themselves looking at Mandy as more than just a girl who holds a hammer. Mandy soon finds herself not only lost in a whirlwind of a male-dominated world, but also the center of an inadvertently "constructed" love triangle. Mandy must choose between two guys who want her heart. But what's a girl to do when she wants them both?

Yani's Analysis:
I love a well "constructed" love triangle. Especially on books like this, simple " cute" reads.
See more about what a "cute" read is {here}.

However, after all the great reviews I read about this book, I was disappointed. Not only was Mandy confused about here feelings, but the plot was confused too. The story didn't know where it was going. It wasn't your typical "Oh, I am confused about who I love." It felt like the actions where random, not motive driven. Even though the character felt one way, she acted another. I was just very confused as to why she did most of the things she did. And while there where some original, romantic, and steamy moments, it all felt random.

Still I enjoyed it, but I have read better (see below for recommendation). Will give Laurens another try with her book Magic Hands.

Plot: 3/5
Writing Style: 2/5
Uniqueness: 2/5
Characters: 3.5/5

Memorable Quotes:

"You've got four alpha males and one innocent female. Mix it all together and you might as well be watching a National Geographic special. It's about the animal in all of us, and you're the prize whether you like it or not."
