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…
This cover totally fooled me. This sucker was filled with lots of dirty talk and alphamale vibes that totally did it for me! Whoa! I was pleasantly surprised by the steam level in this super cute story. It’s a brothers best friend fake relationship setup that was funny, flirty, and all sorts of spicy.
Georgie and Travis are so freaking cute. He’s given up on life and she’s invades his space to pull him back into the land of the living. The ensuing antics were super fun! It’s low angst and full of amazing secondary characters I can’t wait to learn more about.
Here’s what I loved:
Tessa Bailey is new to me. Yes, I know she’s not a new author, but this was my first read and it was a home run. lol I should probably mention here that baseball plays a role in this cuteness, though its not a sport romance.
Travis is smoking hot! A dirty talking playboy who grows tremendously over the course of the novel. I lurve him!
Georgie is such a sweet and cute character. The baby of the family who is constantly overlooked until Travis gives her the support and courage to step out of her shell.
The secondary characters are a hoot and a half. The women’s club is hilarious and I can’t wait to learn more about all these girls.
All in all, this was a super cute book and I can’t wait for more! Recommended!
