Master carpenter, Martina “MJ” Jenkins, has built plenty of structures in her day, but none as sturdy as the walls she’s built around her heart. After crossing paths with a sexy U.S. Senator, with gorgeous brown eyes and a seductive smile, her resolve to stay unattached, crumbles. Martina is determined to steer clear, but the Senator’s kisses are too delicious to resist. Third generation U.S. Senator, Paul Kendricks, faithfully represents his state and is loyal to the family’s political legacy. Still he yearns for a wife, children, and a new career far away from the political arena. Too bad the object of his desire is the one woman who wants nothing to do with commitment. But the sparks that fly between them can’t be ignored. As Paul chips away at the wall Martina has built, can he convince her to put her fears aside and open her heart to love?


Rating: ☆☆☆☆

When it comes to love there is no negotiating, you're either all in or you're not.

Carpenter, Martina doesn't do relationships, protecting herself from having her heart broken. If she doesn't let people in then she can't get hurt. On the opposite end is Senator, Paul who wants nothing more than to settle down with the woman he loves. He just needs to convince her to let down her walls. Whilst Martina can come across as cold and unfeeling, she is very passionate but is protecting herself from what she sees as a weakness.

The sparks certainly fly between Martina and Paul causing plenty of sizzle and heat throughout. It is interesting seeing Martina's walls slowly be chipped away, allowing her to face up to her fears. Paul's patience and determination to break down her walls comes in spite of his own issues.

A very sweet read but watch out for the sass from Martina as there is plenty of it.
