Publisher's Summary

I’ve spent 44 years of my life telling the world I’m a carpet man. Is it too late to admit to myself and everyone else that deep down I’m really all about the hardwood?

It took me over 35 years to admit to myself that I’m gay, another seven to find the courage to say it out loud to anyone else, and exactly 30 seconds to develop a massive crush on my daughter’s music teacher. It’s really not my fault. Have you even seen those cute bowties he wears?

After everything it’s taken to get here, am I going to work up the nerve to come out to my ex-wife and my best friends?

Am I ready to shake up my comfortable, simple life and take a chance on Watson? Or, am I going to throw a wrench in my own chance for happily ever after?

Hardwood is a steamy, seriously with so much delicious tension, single-dad, gay awakening, low angst story, which happens to be the third in the Four Bears Construction Series. It can be listened to as a stand-alone. There are no shifters in this series, only the other kind of bears.

Not the best in the series

I love this series, but was a bit disappointed with this book. It felt like 80% of the book was the two MCs internally debating the same issues over and over and over. After Everett *almost* comes out for the 7th time and Watson tells himself not to like Everett for the 10th time it really felt repetitive. There were some funny moments (especially the sex toy incident) and cute scenes. But it really didn’t feel like much happened beyond the MCs having the same internal dilemmas over and over.

Loved it - favorite in the series!

While this is book 3 in the series, I read (listened) to it last since audiobook book 3 was released AFTER book 4 and I have no patience! This was definitely my favorite of the series, edging out book 1 in my opinion. It just hit the perfect balance of relationship building, lower angst, funny (more Stone-isms!!), sweet, sexy and romantic. This is a series where the humor is a little OTT and I love it! It was nice to catch up with some of the other couples as well as some of the lead-ins for book 4 (which I already knew since I read that one before this one). Highlights for me: - Everett being a brave guy entering in his first relationship with a man (although it took him long enough in the grand scheme of things!) - Incident with the sex toy (trust me... this one is hot, embarrassing and funny) - Watson was a sweetie who I really wanted to see get his HEA - More Stone-isms - So hard not to love that guy and his sayings No negatives in this one for me, so it gets all 5 stars!

Highly enjoyable & recommended

This was book 3 and I have to say that it was really good. At points I wanted to speed things up but without my help things got to where they needed to go. Watson & Even are so opposite that they actually compliment each other nicely. Add in an adorable little girl who hates veggies but loves pizza and tools and you have a winner in my world.

Good

I am a music teacher so I really loved the story line but I wanted to strangle Ev. How do you not come out to all your friends when they are all gay. Especially for that long of time. That just didn’t seem real to me. He was a coward that couldn’t stand up and tell his exwife the truth. But I love that Watson was patient with him. He was a great character!!!

Worst book of the first 3

The "in the closet" backstory drove me absolutely nuts with how long it progressed throughout the book. The story didn't start to finally get good untill there was only 1.5 hours left. I know every book in a series can't be great but Caulky was amazing, Nailed was good, this book Hardwood was so/so and I hope Screwed isn't bad with how we are progressing. On to book 4...

Nonfiction relationship drama

Boring and not sexy at all. I get it this book probably tells the story of what a Gay relationship could be like .. but I like to read or listen to because of the fantasy of romance they provide not to make me feel awkward and insecure or to be reminded of real life. If ur looking for a book or story of what awkward moments real life could bring then by all means listen in. Not my cup of tea. I want to escape the real world.

It was ok

I agree with another reviewer that there was too much internal monologuing about the same issues again and again by both main characters, and nearly coming out and then not doing it got a bit repetitive. There were funny moments, and nice relationship moments, and I still liked the book - but I prefer the other books in the series.
