Fixing the Hole by Katherine Halle

Fixing the Hole by Katherine Halle

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fixing the Hole was a really great read. While the circumstances that lead to Steve and Riley meeting seriously suck, I loved the way they interacted with one another and I found their occasional shyness to be sweet. As the story progresses, we learn that both men have been cheated on by a past boyfriend and this makes them both skittish when it comes to relationships – especially Steve, whose much younger boyfriend claimed he cheated because Steve was old and boring. Because the story is told from Steve’s point of view, we understand his hesitancy from the very beginning, but don’t learn of Riley’s cheating ex until much later in the book and that was just as big of an “A-HA” moment for me as it was for Steve.

I feel I should point out that there is no sex in this novella, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t any sexual tension. Quite the opposite in fact and this makes for one heck of a foreplay scene when Steve and Riley finally share their first kiss … and second kiss … and third kiss … and oh my goodness does Ms. Halle do a great job reminding the reader of just how good kissing can be. And for two men who have been cheated on in the past, this is the perfect “baby step” toward a potential relationship. I for one would love, love, love for Ms. Halle to write a sequel to Fixing the Hole so that I could get the chance to see their relationship progress further (hint, hint).

I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
