I'm Ivy Clarke. Bartender, best friend, and disbeliever in love.
And now I'm in over my head, trying to flip a house all by myself.
Thanks, HGTV.
I'm not too proud to admit I need some help. Too bad the only one who can help me is the same man I want to throw out this house's second-story window.
Jackson Gamble and I can't be in the same room together for more than a minute without devolving into a sparring match.
Except for that one time…
But enough about that. Jackson's looking for forever, and I don't believe in love, remember?
Get in. Renovate. Get out. Keep my heart firmly in tact.
Because it's much easier to fix up a house than a broken heart.

Full of humor and dripping with delicious tension, Nailed It proves that every heart can be ready for a little rehabilitation, if only you're willing to open it up.

When I read the blurb I developed grabby hands. I'm addicted to the home repair/flip/home shows on TV. A romance about a yin jang couple working to flip a house, woot woot !
Ivy has a bit of career dread going on, she found her college degree didn't get her where she wanted to be so she's bartending ...more

Ivy Clarke has a secret, she slept with her best friend Savanna's brother Jackson a while back - seven days of wonderful carnality until she realised she as developing feelings and broke it off. Brutal words were said on both sides and now their legendary sniping at each other has taken a nasty turn ...more

By SnoopyDoo's Book Reviews October 22, 2017

It is no secret by now that I’m a huge Cindi Madsen fan and read pretty much any book she writes and always look forward to her books.
I’m also a sucker for second chance romance so when this came up for review it was a no-brainer for me.
I enjoyed the characters, they both were well


By Tami October 02, 2017

I love second chance romances, but this one offered a little something different. DIY project gone bad. Girl bit off more than she can chew, hunky contractor rescues damsel. OK that last bit's kinda annoying, like we need rescuing. Cute book.

This review is based on the ARC provided by the author and ...more

By Samantha (WLABB) October 08, 2017

I love second chance romances, and when I saw this would have some sort of HGTV angle, I was all in.

Ivy was a person with a LOT of commitment issues. She couldn't really commit to a job or even a wall color, so how could she commit to another person? After watching her mother serial date/marry her ...more

By Bette October 21, 2017

LOVED this book! It's light, sexy, and fun. In true HGTV fashion renovations lead to a fantastic happily ever after.

Ivy and Jackson were such fun characters and the chemistry jumped from the pages. Most people would think they hated each other seeing as they can't be in the same room without snappin ...more

By Jill M October 08, 2017

This was a cute, fun and flirty story. It had laugh out loud one liners and up against the wall sexy times. It was a little angsty but a whole lot of fun.

Nowadays who doesn’t watch DIY flipping house shows? They’re everywhere. But what is better is reading a story about flipping a house. Like most p ...more

The characters from this book were the 2ndary ones from, 12 Steps to Mr. Right. Ivy is Savannah's bestie and Jackson is Savannah's brother. And while it's really not necessary to read "12 Steps", I think that reading "12 ...more

By A October 23, 2017

I’ve been dying to get my hands on Ivy and Jackson’s story ever since they verbally sparred in “12 Steps to Finding Mr. Right”. Cindi Madsen nailed it once again by giving us a sassy, feisty heroine on the outside but conflicted, broken, and looking for love even though she doesn’t realize it on the ...more

After spending a childhood being drug along as her mother chased her “flavor-of-the-month” guy, Ivy is anti-love, anti-relationships, and anti- any sort of commitment, down to what color to paint the walls in her condo. But it’s a spur of the moment decision that lands her in hot water when she deci ...more

By Floryie January 17, 2018

As soon as I saw the author's name, I was sure that I wanted to read the book. And then the blurb was interesting enough to want me to commit to the story.

The starting was intriguing with the way Ivy and Jackson were butting heads. But the story was slow in forming into the rest of the tale. It took ...more

By Becky October 05, 2017

Having already read Savannah and Linc’s story in 12 Steps to Mr Right, I knew immediately that I was going to thoroughly enjoy Ivy and Jackson's journey in finding their HEA. Their getting there was so completely captivating I just knew hands down that I was in for a fast paced story with the type o ...more

Nailed It by Cindi Madsen  
I have an affinity for cheeky and entertaining.  Cindi Madsen hit the nail on the head (pun intended) with Ivy and Jackson.  Nailed It combines two of my worst addictions: HGTV and hilarious, steamy, heartwarming romance to create an irresistibly tempting renovation of the ...more

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Having been in a bit of a contemporary romance rut, this book was a godsend. Ivy was an awesome main character. She was funny, fiercely independent, and endearingly jaded. Her journey from a commitment adverse cynic to s ...more

Jackson is just really sexy, "Jackson stepped between my legs, wedging them open. He dipped his head, leaving him right at eye level with me. “Now that we’ve gotten some of that anxious energy out with destruction, how ’bout you tell me what’s up? You’re still all tense.” Jackson really knows how to ...more

Ivy and Jackson's story--finally!

In many ways, this book was absolutely worth the wait--I loved Ivy and Jackson together. When they were getting along and even when they weren't, it was a lot of fun to read their back-and-forth banter. (Jackson's morning coffee messages were some of my favorite bits ...more

She loves music, dancing, and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children.
