“Ms. Law doesn’t just focus on the main characters. She takes the time to build the secondary characters which make the book even more appealing.”
~ Under the Covers

Hardheaded is the first book of Deep in the Heart series and focuses on women empowerment, sisterhood, love, and second chances.  Blue Bonnet Construction is owned by three sisters and mainly consist of women employees.  Struggling to compete with other construction businesses, they enter a TV reality show in hopes for more exposure and business.

This installment focuses on Jill, one of the three foster sisters who owns Blue Bonnet.  Unfortunately, this show will ensure spending time with her ex-husband of twenty-four hours.   Their relationship did not end well and they have not spoken in years.  Yes, there are many things left unsaid but this show will give them a chance to hash things out…in a matter of speaking.

Just as any Kim Law novels, I was automatically drawn to the characters in this book.  Specifically, Jill who’s had a rough young life and made a few mistakes, but obviously grown up and have learned to be a mature and a responsible woman.  It was a treat to see her get her life back and ultimately getting a second chance that she desperately deserves.

Though it took some time for me to warm up to Cal, I did realize later that he deserves his second chance at a HEA too.  Like Jill, he also had his issues that prevented him to fully commit.   I did end up like him in the end.  He had secrets that revealed his true feelings and I thought he was very sweet. 

Ms. Law doesn’t just focus on the main characters. She takes the time to build the secondary characters which make the book even more appealing. Blu for one, an amazing lady who has done amazing things for her foster kids.  And my favorite, the previous owner of one of the project house.  She scared me a little in the beginning but by the end of the story, she had won my heart.

I love the HGTV theme in this novel and I love that it rooted from the author’s experience with her own home construction.  I love that she mentioned it at the end of the book.  I’m truly excited to get more of this series. Good job, Ms. Law!

About Kim Law

Award-winning author Kim Law wrote her first story, “The Gigantic Talking Raisin,” in elementary school. Although it was never published, it was enough to whet her appetite for a career in writing. First, however, she would try her hand at a few other passions: baton twirling, softball, and music, to name a few. Voted “Bookworm” and “Most Likely to Succeed” in high school, she went on to earn a college degree in mathematics.
Law spent years working as a computer programmer and raising her son, and she now devotes her time and energy to writing romance novels (none of which feature talking raisins).
She is a Romance Writers of America’s RITA® finalist, a past winner of the RWA’s Golden Heart® Award, and currently serves as president for her local RWA chapter. Her books can best be described as a light-hearted mix taking her readers on a sexy, fun, and emotional ride. A native of Kentucky, she now lives with her husband and an assortment of animals in her Middle Tennessee home.

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
