Product Description

Sometimes a woman just has to learn how to drill herself...



Sarah began her DIY education by ditching the biggest tool in her garage—her husband. Now after her divorce, she’s realizing that not just her marriage was boring, beige and transitional. She wants to renovate herself, but she’s in over her head.

Luckily, Chris the hot young handyman is teaching her how to screw, drill, and hammer—and also how to use her power tools.

Together they’re updating her wiring and unclogging her pipes. But when Sarah worries that she’s treating Chris like her own personal power tool, what will she do? Will she pull the plug?

DO IT YOURSELF is a funny, sexy 25,000-word novella about assertiveness, assumptions, and assitude. It's rated M for Metaphor-heavy!

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT VOICE - GREAT READ 27 September 2016
By Adira August - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have to give this thoroughly enjoyable read 5 stars just because Nikki Kaye is so damn much fun to read! As soon as Sarah started talking, I was hooked. A real life heroine - screwed up in ways we can relate to. Not weak and wimpy, just standing on the precipice of self-knowledge. A scary place to be.

The characters are very nicely developed for a novella, the character arc complete and believable, and I love Chris. Yes, I said that. I fell for the hero. And not just because he's hot. And can fix plumbing, though that is a huge plus. I fell for him because he just likes her. Because he's a guy, guy, without being a standard-issue Alpha Neanderthal. The dynamic between the two is just right. The author doesn't hit us in the head with it, but lets us discover them as they do each other.

The sex is great and real and hot and funny, kinda like the sex we actually have when it's really good.

I love finding new writers I love to read. This is so well-written, and like all really good writers, you never really notice the writing while you're immersed in the reality she's created. Ms. Kaye is going someplace and I intend to follow.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handyman Makes it All Better 24 September 2016
By candyaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Sarah is a lost divorced 38-year old woman who uses house projects to fill her life. She feels capable while doing small jobs around the house but decides to deconstruct a boring beige bathroom because it reminds her too much of the past. She soon realizes that she is in over her head & closes the door on the bathroom remodel. When she shares her failure with her therapist, the therapist offers a number of 'someone she knows' who can help her. Enter Chris, the younger handyman/contractor to save the day. Sarah is immediately attracted to Chris & fantasizes about him. Has they work in close quarters in the bathroom & get know each to others things heat up. Sarah discovers a lot about herself from her brief encounters with Chris. She learns to have confidence in herself.

This is another really good short story by Nikky Kaye! Well written with a good message & extra dose of steamy hot sex!! The book is for mature readers only. Though I feel there was a serious theme running along the story was still humorful & fun. Any book that can describe on-line dildo shopping as "It was a veritable rainbow of cocks.", is worth a read in my opinion!

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars You must read this! 12 November 2016
By Jasmyn9 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the ultimate handyman romance come to life. There is just so much hot goodness in the little novella that I read it twice - back to back - which is unheard of for me! The witty and pun filled dialog was too good for me to walk away after the first time. And, like a good meatloaf, the seconds were just as good as the firsts.

But this book isn't all fluff and sexiness. Somehow, Nikky Kaye threw a couple little life lessons in there without me even noticing them at first. Sarah has a lot on her plate, and her way of dealing with things is to do them all on her own. I was rather impressed with her home improvement abilities and skill with tools.

But she does run into a project that's just too far beyond her skills and youtube tutorials. So she hires a handyman to show her how to do it. Which I love! He isn't doing it all for her, but teaches her along the way. And he's such a great teacher too!

But handyman Chris isn't exactly what Sarah thinks at first. She jumps to conclusions, feelings get hurt, and everyone comes out of the experience having learned a little lesson. So pick an afternoon and just curl up with Do It Yourself. Tell everyone you're furthering your home improvement methods and tune them out for a couple hours. You won't regret it!
4.0 out of 5 stars I'm so glad that I did 22 June 2017

This was a freebie that I downloaded recently. I'm so glad that I did!
'Do It Yourself' was sweet, sexy, and LMAO funny. The h - Sarah - had an inner voice that was over the top hilarious. There were so many good lines from this book that I had a hard time trying to choose one as an example. So - here's one from the H, Chris, to Sarah's ex husband:
“If you’ll forgive the analogy— you made your bed, now you need to lie in it. It’s not her fault that you stained the sheets with your filthy cheating j***!”
And then, there is the unexpected, priceless, full color emoji...LMAO!!!
There was one misstep though: At the beginning of the story, Sarah mentions her cat; later there is no mention of it. As funny as the story was, I could imagine it being really over the top hilarious with the inclusion of the cat...(Cats are subversively funny).
Anyway, for a book that I had assumed would be a likely DNF, 1-star delete, it was the exact opposite. 4.5 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Do It Yourself 5 June 2017
By Epiphany - Published on Amazon.com

No disappointment with this one. This is a quick, steamy, sexy, fun read, where I barked laughed a couple of times. Ms Kaye grabbed my attention from the first page all the way to the last. The analogy between DIY of the powder room and Sarah's life had me snickering. I enjoyed this read. I highly recommend this book. I look forward to more from Ms Kaye.
