Ben wants to find a new home.
Twenty-four-year-old Ben McCormick is the primary caregiver for his brother Milo after their parents’ death. A year into the job, he’s totally got the hang of it. Mostly. Sort of. Not at all?
Defeated and thoroughly chastised for his lack in parenting skills at teacher-parent night, Ben slumps away with the resolve to finally get his life sorted: be a better role model, and sell their parents’ house for a fresh start.
But first, he needs to spruce up his house to hit the market. He’s no DIY king, but Milo’s hot-as-hell woodwork teacher is…
Jack wants an old home to fix.
Thirty-nine-year-old Jack Pecker is waiting for the home of his dreams to come on the market in the summer. What better way to wait the interim months than working on a small renovation gig?
Only trouble is, the gig is for the McCormick brothers. And working in close quarters to red-haired Ben McCormick won’t be easy. Not with the attraction that simmers between them. Attraction Ben makes no effort to hide.
But Jack’s professional. Dating a parent is highly discouraged at Kresley Intermediate, and he’d never cross the lines…
Ben and Jack. Two guys searching for a home –
– a home that might just be where their hearts lead them.

THIS BOOK, YOU GUYS!
Made for You by Anyta Sunday is probably one of the most adorable books I’ve ever read.
There was so much to love about it.
-The older brother/younger sibling/parent dynamics between Ben and Milo. It was heartbreaking, endearing, funny and full of love.
-Mr. Woodpecker’s (aka Jack) relationship with Milo as both his student and friend.
-Sloooooow burn- and when I say slow- I mean SLOW. After every chapter, I would pray that the next one would finally bring that elusive kiss! The UST was real.
-This book was all kinds of adorable. I love stories that make you happy and have you smiling without realizing. I think I had a smile on my face almost the whole time.
-Milo, Milo, Milo. I’ll leave it at that.
-Ben and Jack. It’s impossible to not love them both as individual characters and as a couple.
-Friends to lovers.
-The dialogue was exquisitely written; it just flowed.
I just fell in love with this little family of three. This lovely story is about love and finding your people. People are what make a house a home. Again, this book is just full of love- as cheesy as it sounds it’s true.
Made for You = chicken soup for the soul.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.
