Sunny Shelly’s Review: How To Nail A Stud, by Katharine Sadler

How to Nail a Stud
Katharine Sadler
Publication date: April 16th 2021
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Shel is tired of dating men who don’t appreciate her rock and roll wardrobe or her tomboy tendencies. She’s swearing off dating, and she is not going to give another moment’s thought to the hot single dad next door. She is not going to waste a single moment dwelling on his muscles or his eyes or the way he plays with his adorable six-year-old daughter.

Max has made mistakes, he’s been a terrible father, and he has no problem spending the rest of his life atoning by being the best, most devoted parent he can possibly be. A devoted father does not have wicked thoughts about his sexy neighbor, and he most certainly does not consider an actual relationship.

Except, he can’t stop thinking about Shel, and he’s not sure what to do about it.


Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

How To Nail A Stud is a charming frenemies/neighbors to lovers romcom from a new-to-me author. There is a lot of push and pull between Max and Shel, and it kind of drove me crazy that he was so wishy-washy about things. They both have a not-so-pretty history, and their friendship becomes front and center in the media thanks to an ex with a grudge. And who Shel is, as the daughter of two world-famous singers.

While I didn’t love this story as a whole, there were a lot of parts that I liked. I thought Max’s daughter Addy and her obsession with Shel’s dog was absolutely adorable.Max really tried to do the honorable thing by keeping his distance from Shel. He’d paid dearly for some mistakes he made in the past, and didn’t want to drag her into his world. But he eventually reaches a point where he needs to decide if walking away from her would be another big mistake.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
