Second Hand - Heidi Cullinan, Marie Sexton Cute, quick, and well-constructed, with two charming leads, full of humorous touches and even an adorable dog. It is hard to imagine a sweeter hero than Paul: his efforts to win the curb appeal contest, his obliviousness to Lorraine's flirting, his way with animals. El walking around with the dog in a carrier, and then worrying about exposing her to second hand smoke, was reason alone to read the book. The stuff with El's mom's hoarding was also very well-done--and fit well with overall themes.

The book almost qualifies as a sweet romance--sex comes late in the story, and isn't what I'd call raw--especially for an M/M. I read it after [b:Dirty Laundry|16076072|Dirty Laundry (Tucker Springs, #3)|Heidi Cullinan|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1349738201s/16076072.jpg|21871609], which I liked better, (and definitely had more raw sex.) But I was very glad to learn more about El and Paul.

Definitely a must-read for fans of Tucker Springs.
