Every woman in Millie Delacroix’s family is cursed—kind of.
Birth control just doesn’t work for them. Like ever. Going to the altar knocked up is pretty much a family tradition. And twenty-four-year-old Millie refuses to let that happen to her—again.
Especially now that she’s responsible for raising her brothers and sister. A life of celibacy is her best defense—at least until the kids are grown and can take care of themselves. And, really, what’s ten years with no sex? No men. No sex. No love. It’s a fool-proof plan.
Until she meets Luc Valencia.
The Mexican-American contractor is just trying to do his best. Since his father handed him the reins to the family business, every day is a test to prove himself. At this point in his life, professionalism has to be his top priority.
At least until Millie becomes Luc’s client. Even with too much on her shoulders, the feisty redhead has the power to set him off, crack him up, or bring him to his knees.
All he has to do is resist falling for her through one kitchen remodel, and everything will be fine. Right?

Stephanie Fournet, where have you been all my life?
Seriously, there wasn’t a single thing about this book that I didn’t 100% love. Even when I had to put the book down for a few minutes (because I was so afraid of the talk that Luc and Millie were going to have…and equally afraid that they weren’t really going to talk yet, that I needed to take a minute before whatever was going to happen happened because my heart was just so darn full) I loved it. Luc. Millie. Mattie. Harry. Emmett. Clarence. Luc’s mami, papi, abuela, brother Alex–OMG, I loved each and every one of those people. They felt almost as real as my own family (perhaps slightly more so, in the middle of the night when they were all up doing their book thing and my actual family was all asleep)–not a one of them felt like they were there to meet a convenient plot point.
And man, never have I wished so much that I’d taken Spanish instead of French! Darn you, thirteen year old self…
Kind of Cursed made me laugh–a lot. It had me sighing more than once, and yep, there might have been a teensy bit of sobbing during the Coco scene. (Geesh, I can’t even write about it here without getting a little weepy. Darn you, Ms Fournet!) This was my first book from a new-to-me author, but you’d better believe it sure as heck won’t be my last.
Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A
