SUMMARY Handyman

SUMMARY Handyman SUMMARY Ý Handyman READ & DOWNLOAD ✓ BJWP.CO.UK ↠ Claire Thompson Nd he focused firmly on his marriage Now that his bed is empty however those deep sexual longings are rising dangerously close to the surface Their connection is deep instant and one that Jack tries to ignore Yet friendship grows into an erotic journey that must cross a divide of different generations backgrounds and worlds The prize is the one thing neither is sure he can handle true lo. I decided to read this book because I liked the blurb of the story It seemed rather predictable but sometimes I don t want originality I just want a nice easy predictable read And this is mostly the right book for thatI liked the characters especially Jack Jack is an older guy actually 44 years old doesn t seem old to me but it s older than most characters in romance fiction tend to be who s been married for 24 rather passionless but loving years and widowed for 2 He has had exactly one homosexual on his side rather passive encounter that happened 26 years ago and he managed to make himself forget about that pretty easilyWill on the other hand has always been gay always known it and lived it to the fullest if that is what you call a countless string of one night stands and non relationship encounters He has sex but he has no idea about love But Will has just turned 30 and also considering his high stress job he suddenly notices that something vital is missing in his life So he takes a sabbatical buys an old house in urgent need of renovations and hires Jack as his handyman And despite Jack being everything he hasn t looked for so far older not G handsome etc Will falls promptly in love But Jack is straight right Or not So generally I liked this book Jack was great and a very believable character He needed time to deal with his feelings for Will for coming to terms with the change in his view of himself and the world in general That makes sense and was actually refreshing And I liked how sweet Will was and how patient mostly So that is a definite plusHowever I had two issues with this story The first one is actually a rather huge one and that is the writing style It felt stilted to me Unnatural A bit corny I cannot imagine people really talking that way especially to friends and peers Well not in the 21st century in the younger demographic anyway It made me feel uncomfortable from the very beginning and although I got used to it to a certain extent it always put a damper on things The second issue was the mushiness Don t get me wrong I like sweet tender stories But the way Will and Jack talked sometimes well it was than sweet It was red candy coma sweet Maybe that would have been okay but together with the stilted language it seemed too much for me I m not saying people cannot have tender moments But the degree of tender moments in this story was immense And slightly unbelievable to meStill altogether a nice easy read especially if you don t have too high expectations Reading it was generally time well spent if only to get to know Jack and Will and to accompany those two for a while

SUMMARY Handyman SUMMARY Ý Handyman READ & DOWNLOAD ✓ BJWP.CO.UK ↠ Claire Thompson Touch one stolen kiss could send the older man into full retreat Where Will might have uickly moved on to a ready and willing partner he unexpectedly finds himself wanting to go slow With just a little coaxing he’s sure he can show Jack how good it could be between them Jack a recent widower never thought of himself as gay Frightened years ago by an erotic encounter with his best frie. This story had the bones of a good honest and adorable romance The age gap aspect and a character discovering his bi identity late in life put an interesting spin on the evolving love story between these two men But the writing style Although grammatically correct I had big issues with it the dialogues especially And so odd as I normally love the dialogues in romance books My frustration turned into curiosity and a desire to figure out why I disliked it so much in this book If it weren t for other peoples positive reviews I would have dnfed this book well before the 10% mark My search led me to find out about the usage of dialogue tags and action beats in fiction writing You know the he said at the end of a spoken sentence or the small actions of non verbal communication like He crossed his arms between lines of dialogue I realised such tags are essential to me as a reader when it comes to enjoying fiction This book went the opposite route with its dialogues sometimes lining up paragraph after paragraph of the same character speaking without any dialogue tags at all To make things even worse for me the topics of the dialogue in the beginning of the book were utterly utterly mundane To sum it up the book seemed hell bent on being as boring as possible Luckily for me the book got better both in terms of tighter storyline and dialogue writing to my liking I did enjoy Will and Jack s blossoming love story and how they opened up to each other and talked problems through I loved the final chapters of Jack s interactions with his adult sons confronted with their father choosing a new and different path mid life 3 solid stars for the story but the writing style didn t work for me

    [E–pub New] (Handyman) author Claire Thompson I liked the idea of the plot The lovestory between Will Spencer a 30 years old stock trader currently on a sabbatical and handyman Jack Crawford a 44 years old widower whose homosexuality was long buriedUnfortunately I never had this feeling to be in the middle of the story I've missed the spark The dialogues were wooden and the flashbacks were too muchTruth be told I often had the urge to skip pages
