I learned the hard way that being a handywoman isn’t easy. The questions, the stares–the assumption I’m the proud owner of a cock and balls. Not that it matters. I’ve proven over and over that I’m ready for anything the judgmental asses throw at me.Except the hot, single dad of twins who just moved to town.Brantley Cooper gets the shock of his life when I show up on his doorstep to fix up his kids’ new rooms. His son is confused why ‘the pretty lady has a drill,’ and his daughter has a new obsession–me.On paper, my job is easy. Go in, do their bedrooms, and leave.In theory, I’m spending eight hours a day with a guarded, sexy as hell guy, and I’m staying for dinner more often than I’m eating it alone, on my couch, with Friends re-runs.I shouldn’t be staying for dinner. I shouldn’t be helping him out with the twins. I shouldn’t be falling in love with tiny toes and dimpled cheeks.And I most definitely should not be kissing my client.
“Daddyyyyy!” Ellie screamed.“Daddy!” Eli followed suit with.“Help,” I whispered. They splashed each other extra loud.“Oh, hell,” Brantley said, storming up the stairs. Slowly, I turned my face to his. I was soaking wet, from my little socks to my hair and everything in between. “I made a bad choice.”
“Ewi! Get off the toiwet!”Okay. Maybe I wasn’t going into the bathroom right now.“No! I’m pooping!” Eli shouted back.That was too much information.“Well, stop pooping!” came Ellie’s response. “You smell bad!” Still too much information.“I can’t just stop pooping, Ewwie. There’s still poo in my tummy!”“Okay!” Brantley came up the stairs, taking them two at a time. “That’s your weekly quota of the ‘p’ word used in about ten seconds. Eleanor, let your brother use the toilet. Elijah…Please stop telling the entire neighborhood what you’re doing in the bathroom.” I snorted, dipping my head since I was still holding the tray. Brantley turned to look at me. “Oh, Jesus. I’m sorry you had to hear that.”“So am I,” I replied.
“Last night, after bathtime, we had an argument over who has the best genitals.”“Eli insisted it was his because he can play with it. I told him we’d revisit this conversation in ten years.”
Imagine that. A pointless conversation with a four-year-old. What a novelty.
Jayda: Get fucked.Jayda: No, literally. Literally get fucked.Me: We’re done here.
“They’d better have more than the patience of a saint. I want the cock of a God, too.” She blinked at me for a moment. “Do you ever think I should be less of the best friend kind of parent and more of the “don’t speak like that” parent?”I twisted my lips in a wry smile. “You tried that once. It lasted a week.”
“Give me the brush. Now.” He dad-voiced me, holding his hand out expectantly.I folded my arms, carefully keeping the brush close to my body without getting paint on myself. “No. That voice won’t work of me. I have twenty-six-years of practice of resistance against the Dad-Voice.”“Worth a try. But, still… Give me the brush.”
“You really are a regular little Miss Fix-It, aren’t you?”
