Fix Her Up
Fix Her Up: A Novel | Tessa Bailey
22 posts | 21 read | 20 to read
A brand new romantic comedy from New York Times bestseller Tessa Bailey! Georgette Castles family runs the best home renovation business in town, but she picked balloons instead of blueprints and they havent taken her seriously since. Frankly, shes over it. Georgie loves planning childrens birthday parties and making people laugh, just not at her own expense. Shes determined to fix herself up into a Woman of the World... whatever that means. Phase one: new framework for her business (a website from this decade, perhaps?) Phase two: a gut-reno on her wardrobe (fyi, leggings are pants.) Phase three: updates to her exterior (do people still wax?) Phase four: put herself on the market (and stop crushing on Travis Ford!) Living her best life means facing the truth: Georgie hasnt been on a date since, well, ever. Nobodys asking the town clown out for a night of hot sex, thats for sure. Maybe if people think shes having a steamy love affair, theyll acknowledge shes not just the little sister who paints faces for a living. And who better to help demolish that image than the resident sports star and tabloid favorite? Travis Ford was major league baseballs hottest rookie when an injury ended his career. Now hes flipping houses to keep busy and trying to forget his glory days. But he cant even cross the street without someone recapping his greatest hits. Or making a joke about his bat. And then there's Georgie, his best friends sister, who is not a kid anymore. When she proposes a wild schemethat they pretend to date, to shock her family and help him land a new jobhe agrees. Whats the harm? Its not like its real. But the girl Travis used to tease is now a funny, full-of-life woman and theres nothing fake about how much he wants her...

Ooh y'all. I usually don't care about sex scenes in books and often just skim them but these were STEAMY. Great characters and character GROWTH. I loved Georgie and that instead of a typical beauty she is a party clown. Fun read! I can't wait for the next one!

Okay the sex scenes were WAY too much and didn‘t blend in with the writing of the rest of the book.
It had its ups and downs , and I enjoyed it. Probably wouldn‘t read it again though 😬

3.5 ⭐️

I can‘t believe how awful this is. The hero is a massive unreconstructed alphahole unhealthily obsessed by the fact that the heroine is both his best friend‘s little sister and a virgin. The heroine is an actual clown and also Not Like Other Girls. Everyone in this is horrid. And none of it is sexy. None of it. I could really rant about this, but if you want a romance about a washed up baseball player, go read Evvie Drake Starts Over not this.

sprainedbrain This sounds horrible, but I love ‘alphahole‘ and will be adding this to my vocab. 🤣 4mo
Verity @sprainedbrain you‘re welcome. I can‘t claim that I invented it but I‘m glad something good came out of that nightmare! 4mo

Latest contemporary romance read. And I‘m loving the trend for graphic covers - even if I can‘t get the whole title in the shot here!

I spent have this book rolling my eyes and cringing. The other half sighing and swooning. I think the sweetness factor won out and 🔥🔥🔥. Definitely not everyone's cup of tea, but if you enjoy steamy romances and can get over some annoying pet names this one is for you!

Jen_Reads I keep looking at this one and debate on whether or not I want to read it. 4mo
sammisho @Jen_Reads it was fun and cute! I enjoyed it! I plan on reading more from this author! 4mo

In general, it was funny and it is a light summer story. However, it has a lot of cliché and explicit sex scenes. If you don't bother these two things well it can be cute. Friends since childhood but he didn't know how she felt about him. He had an injury that took him out from what he loved to do. He returned to his old town and then...I will say, that both of them "fixed" each other in their lives. 3⭐️

Umm, this book! 😱🔥🔥🙈🌶🌶 It‘s the usual trope you expect for a romance. They are attracted but can‘t/shouldn‘t be together. They fake date but don‘t fake sex, lol. I could have used less of the “baby girl” term of endearment from the Travis character and there were some other issues, but you don‘t read this for the secondary characters, so overall I enjoyed this even if it made me blush quite a bit 😂

I really enjoyed this book. Georgie has had a crush on her brothers friend since forever. When Travis comes home after a career ending injury he doesn't know what he wants to do with his life. When he finds out that he is up for the job to be an voice of a baseball teams home game he decides he wants to change his image. Georgie agrees to be his fake girlfriend. But what happens when they start to have feeling for each other?

Lovesbooks87 This is my 5th completed book in the #24b4monday readathon. I don't think I will be getting much more reading time. Even thou I didn't make the full 24 hours I would call it a successful weekend with 5 books started and completed! 😀 5mo

Still listening but I‘m going to call it a night on #24B4Monday 5 hours isn‘t too bad considering my goal is 6 hours. This was mostly time driving and audiobaking. I have less than an hour left in this book so I might finish it tonight.

Bookjunkie57 48 minutes later I finished the book. 😂 (edited) 5mo
Andrew65 Well done, a great first day total. 🙌 5mo

4/5

This is a super fun romance. It includes a fake relationship which is one of my favorite things in a romance novel. I loved all the secondary characters as well, and can't wait to read their stories too!

A fun romantic comedy with a older brother‘s best friend trope. There were times I wish the characters were a little more fleshed out (Travis‘ backstory in particular), but overall a good read. Once they get together it is steamier than the cover leads you to think. My first Tessa Bailey, but not my last!

KirstieE Sounds exactly like the kind of book I need right now! Now to wait for the release ! 6mo
Kristy_K @KirstieE It was a fun piece of brain candy. Hope you enjoy! 6mo

Hot! So hot! I cannot beginning to explain how much I loved this book; I did not expect to enjoy this so much that I had someone read this out loud to me while I was driving home in traffic so that I wouldn‘t have to stop reading!

This book most definitely lived up to its hype and now I can‘t wait to see what happens next!
