Handyman - Claire Thompson

Will meets Jack when he hires him to help remodel his kitchen.  Will is taking a leave of absence from his high pressure job on Wall Street and has bought a house to fix up.  Jack is a widower who makes a living making furniture and remodeling homes.


Will is also basically a player who is attracted to his handman.  It's just that he is so built and so fine!  Jack seems friendly, but straight so he figures all that would ever happen is at least a friendship.  Then he sees a similar response in Jack's eyes.  Could it be?


Jack is not sure what he is feeling.  He  has not felt like this in over twenty years.  An attraction to another man.  It is definitely there, but he has no idea what to do about it.  He was married for so long he is basically starting over.


Will and Jack are friends, and they try to be honest with one another.  I liked that.  I found this story to be more believable since they were open about what was going on and how they felt.  It is hard to build trust but with a friend, it comes easier.


This story was slow but picks up.  It is just that there were parts I felt like were kind of forced.  I liked the book overall - has a solid storyline.  I even wanted to defend the main characters to those that opposed them.  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
