Blog Tour: Nailed (Four Bears Construction #2) by KM Neuhold (Reviews + Excerpt)



Four Bears Construction Series, Book 2

KM Neuhold

M/M Romance, Enemies to Lovers

Release Date: 04.28.20



My new neighbor is a total tool

He hated me from the second he laid eyes on me, and I don’t have the first clue why…

But, if he wants to hate me, I’m happy to give him a few reasons: mowing the lawn at dawn on the weekend, leaving garbage cans in front of his driveway, renting a petting zoo for my backyard…making a list of ways to drive him crazy is half the fun.

He deserves it with the way he’s driving me crazy right back without even trying— walking around without a shirt on, sweaty rippling muscles on full display, well-worn denim jeans perfectly molded to his…well, you get the idea.

My point is, if he wants a war, I’ll give him one.

***Nailed is an enemies to lovers, neighbors who can’t stand each other, omg the anger banging, drool worthy, low angst story, which happens to be the second in my Four Bears Construction Series. It CAN be read as a stand alone. There are NO shifters in this series, only the OTHER kind of bears.

I feel like I’m living in a never ending loop of torture, brought to me by my neighbor who’s clearly Satan in the flesh. Did I die and go to Hell? Is that what happened? Because, at this point, I’d believe it.

“What the hell?” I mutter as I step out onto my back porch, once again in nothing but my underwear. My half asleep brain is sure for a few seconds that I’m dreaming. There’s no way there are goats and sheep and fucking donkeys wandering around in his backyard right now, right? Rudy barks excitedly and tries to rush past me, but I manage to snag his collar.

“You an ass man?” Stone calls with a grin, and I’m surprised I don’t give myself a stroke for how much effort it takes not to go over there and punch him. “Get it, ass?” he says, pointing to the donkey he’s holding on a leash.

“What the fuck is going on? Why do you have a whole zoo in your backyard?” Rudy whines and tugs as I hold tight to his collar.

“It’s my goddaughter’s eighth birthday, I rented her a petting zoo.”

“You can’t just rent a bunch of farm animals,” I argue.

Stone looks around pointedly at the menagerie. “I’m pretty sure I can.”

“Hey, quit it,” I shout at one of the goats who has wandered over onto my property and is now helping himself to the lavender bush I planted. “Shoo.”

“Edgar, come back over here,” Stone scolds the goat.

“Edgar? You know the names of every one of these animals?” I ask skeptically.

“No, but doesn’t he look like an Edgar?”

“There’s something seriously wrong with you,” I mutter. “Keep them off my lawn and out of my bushes or your ass will be over here planting all new ones for me,” I warn. A few butterflies flutter past, one of them resting on my lavender bush for a beat before floating away again, but even that isn’t enough to lower my blood pressure.

“Jack will be happy to,” Stone assures me with a serious nod before breaking into another grin. “Get it? Jack ass?” The donkey brays as if he’s in on the joke.

I hate to admit it, but that’s almost funny. But I’ll be damned if I give him the satisfaction of getting a smile from me. Not after he woke me up with some kind of weirdo Old McDonald role play at eight in the morning on a Saturday.

5 Stars
I Freaking LOVED this book more than the first one (and I really liked that one)! I was laughing and giggling so much, my mother thought I was going crazy. Stone and Dare were at odds with each other so I didn’t know what was going to set Dare off next.
Stone was so funny, with each crazy stunt he pulled to annoy Dare, I loved him more and more. But I liked that he had a serious side to him as well, it proved that he wasn’t just a clown out to mess with everyone. And his attachment to Dare’s dog was so adorable!!
Dare was such a grump but he was great anyway. I loved that he was such a good Dog Dad! But he had a bad habit of jumping to conclusions, so sometimes I really wanted to smack him upside the head to knock some sense into him.
I had so much fun with this book but I need book three SO much and I hate waiting but I know it will be well worth it!

4.25 Stars!
This book was hilarious. The things that Stone comes up with to annoy his neighbor are super funny. He’s so upbeat in general, it’s hard to be mad at him. I really loved how he said common phrases wrong and wondered how people could think he was saying them wrong. He’s a quirky character with a heart of gold. I loved how he took Dare’s nephew as an apprentice and how he managed to wait long enough for Dare to catch up with him.
I sympathized with Dare, but he is very walled off and grumpy. He needed someone bright and shiny and upbeat like Dare. I do think that Dare was way too quick to judge and take offense, but with his background I could understand why. Stone definitely did some annoying things, but I was really happy when Stone finally managed to clear the air between them. I loved watching Dare soften towards Stone and slowly open up. These two had chemistry galore and were hot together even when they didn’t lose their heads while arguing. I enjoyed their tap dance as they went from enemies to lovers to more. I loved that Dare didn’t even think twice about taking in his nephew and Dare’s dog was awesome.
The Four Bears Construction guys are a blast and it was great to see them again. I love the bingo card in their office and can’t wait to see if they have some more fun squares in the next book.  You could read this one as a standalone, but I would suggest reading the first book Caulky simply because it was a fun story that I enjoyed as well.

Author K.M.Neuhold is a complete romance junkie, a total sap in every way. She started her journey as an author in new adult, MF romance, but after a chance reading of an MM book she was completely hooked on everything about lovely- and sometimes damaged- men finding their Happily Ever After together. She has a strong passion for writing characters with a lot of heart and soul, and a bit of humor as well. And she fully admits that her OCD tendencies of making sure every side character has a full backstory will likely always lead to every book having a spin-off or series. When she’s not writing she’s a lion tamer, an astronaut, and a superhero…just kidding, she’s likely watching Netflix and snuggling with her husky while her amazing husband brings her coffee.
