Whatever You Need by Barbara Longley

In the second novel in award-winning author Barbara Longley’s sweet and sexy Haneys series, an introverted electrician rewires a young widow’s apartment—and attempts to mend her heart.

Painfully shy electrician Wyatt Haney is a pro at complex wiring jobs, but when it comes to women, he just can’t seem to make a lasting connection. If he had even half the courage of the superhero he penned for his comic book series, he’d finally be able to talk to his beautiful neighbor, Kayla—and stop hiding behind a hoodie. When an electrical fire breaks out in Kayla’s apartment, Wyatt comes to the rescue, sparking an attraction neither of them expected.

Kayla Malone has had enough surprises. First an unplanned pregnancy at eighteen, then losing her husband in war, and now a fire in her apartment. Thank God her hot neighbor has the skills to help. As Wyatt repairs Kayla’s apartment and forges a relationship with her son, he also makes inroads to her heart. It’s clear that Wyatt has fallen for Kayla, but is she willing to risk another heartbreak—or will she ignore the electricity between them and miss her happy ending?

This is a super sweet story. Wyatt is painfully shy, but he's also a funny, talented, and creative guy. He writes comic stories and when he first sees his beautiful neighbor, he writes her into the comic immediately.

Kayla is a single mom who's raising an amazing kiddo. When she's out at the laundry one weekend, there is a fire and her apartment is kind of ruined by smoke and some fire damage.

Wyatt is the hero as he gets everyone out of the building AND puts his family on the job to fix her apartment. While Kayla isn't sure if she's ready for a relationship, Wyatt knows that in order to win her over, he has to take things at her pace – show her that he's there for her without pushing her into something she might not want.

This developed slowly, with care and I love that the entire family is involved.

While it's a shorter story and I do wish that they had developed the relationship sooner, I did love all of the things that Wyatt and Kayla did for each other.

This is the second in the series, but the first that I have read. It stood up well to being a standalone, but I plan on reading the first when I get a minute. Ms. Longley is a new author to me, but no longer.

The story is very sweet and was the perfect read for a quiet evening. I loved that Wyatt was such a sensitive man, but absolutely stepped up to the task. He proved himself to be honest, faithful, and so good. His interactions with Brady are supper cute, and Kayla never stood a chance. Being a party to their growing friendship and blossoming romance is a treat. And once Wyatt overcomes his shyness, he proves that all his learning works very well in practice too!

The Haney family features large in the story, and they are a good bunch, so I am looking forward to future installments of their stories.

Award-winning author Barbara Longley moved frequently throughout her childhood, but she quickly learned to entertain herself with stories. As an adult, she’s lived in a commune in the Appalachians, taught on a Native American reservation, and traveled extensively from coast to coast. After her children were born, she decided to make the state of Minnesota her permanent home. By day, she works as an elementary school teacher; at night, she devotes herself to writing contemporary, mythical, and paranormal stories. She holds a master’s degree in special education and loves teaching, though reading and writing are also her passions. Her titles include Heart of the Druid Laird; the Perfect, Indiana trilogy (Far from Perfect, The Difference a Day Makes, and A Change of Heart); and the other Novels of Loch Moigh.
