The galaxy doesn’t have enough stars for this.

No one has ever taken Georgette Castle seriously in her life and she is 100% over it. She is ready to take her life to the next level and the only thing she has to do is pretend she hasn’t been in love with Travis Ford all her life.

Travis Ford is spiraling down a blackhole of misery and the wake up call he gets was one he never expected. Georgie is the last person he ever thought he’d be attracted to. But the more time he spends with her the more this thing between them grows until he can only give into it.

I am so insanely in love with Travis and Georgie that I have trouble breathing whenever I think of these two together.

Georgie is actually the love of my life and if she was real I’d make her my wife without hesitation. My heart ached for her so much. I wanted to hit everyone who hurt her and just hug her and keep her safe from this cruel cruel world. I love her story arch and how she took her life in her hands. We all need an inspiration like Georgie. Not only that, she was so funny and just so damn cute. WHAT A DELIGHT!!

Travis is just the grump growly alpha of my dreams. I love me an emotionally scarred man and dude Travis is so so good at being bad. Some of the dirty talk had me actually close the book and take a walk because that was too much for my fragile heart to handle. I loved the duality of his character, how he was so sure about his prowess whenever he was with Georgie but he was also someone with insecurities and issues that are relatable to so many people. I love this fool with all my heart.

This story actually made my heart hurt at many point. No joke, I got this ache in my heart at so many instances. I cherished everyone of those aches because that is what made this story so real to me. I think it effected me more that I can process right now because I never wanted it to finish. Even now, I am planning on re-reading it every six months because it’s made that big of a place in my heart.

5 Stars!

fix her up

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…
