Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey - ARC Review

A brand new romantic comedy from New York Times bestseller Tessa Bailey!

Georgette Castle’s family runs the best home renovation business in town, but she picked balloons instead of blueprints and they haven’t taken her seriously since. 
Frankly, she’s over it. Georgie loves planning children’s birthday parties and making people laugh, just not at her own expense. She’s 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 hasn’t been on a date since, well, ever. Nobody’s asking the town clown out for a night of hot sex, that’s for sure. Maybe if people think she’s having a steamy love affair, they’ll acknowledge she’s 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 baseball’s hottest rookie when an injury ended his career. 
Now he’s flipping houses to keep busy and trying to forget his glory days. But he can’t even cross the street without someone recapping his greatest hits. Or making a joke about his… bat. And then there's Georgie, his best friend’s sister, who is not a kid anymore. When she proposes a wild scheme—that they pretend to date, to shock her family and help him land a new job—he agrees. What’s the harm? It’s not like it’s real. But the girl Travis used to tease is now a funny, full-of-life woman and there’s nothing fake about how much he wants her...

I have seen a couple of reviews of this title in which they talk about how hot this book it's a bad thing. 


Seriously, the writing in a book by Tessa Bailey is always strong.  You like the characters and the story, and they are always the hottest books you have ever read.  And, well, this is why we read them...because, OMG are these fun books.

Georgie and Travis are absolutely as hot as you want them to be, and as fun, and likeable, and generally a lot of fun. 

I could talk about the story, but that is no fun, and, well, you can read the book on your own.  So, I am going to mention that, in order for a book to be as hot as this one is, and for it to still work, you have to have a really skilled who can make her characters speak and act in certain ways while still seeming like people.  This book hits all of the marks, and...have I mentioned it's hot?

I enjoyed and recommend this title.
