Description

The first in a spicy, hilarious HGTV-inspired romantic comedy trilogy from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Happened One Summer and Hook, Line, and Sinker!

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...

“Her voice feels as fresh and contemporary as a Netflix rom-com.” —Entertainment Weekly

“Fix Her Up ticks all my romance boxes. Not only is it hilarious, it’s sweet, endearing, heartwarming and downright sexy. It’s a recipe for the perfect love story.” – Helena Hunting, New York Times bestselling author of Meet Cute

    I loved every single part of this book!! Couldn’t stop once I started! Did not see Travis proposing on screen and I loved it!! I wish I could erase it and reread it all over again!

    This book caught my attention immediately and didn’t let go until the last page. I did feel like the ending was somewhat abrupt but I’ve read the other two books in this series and was glad to be able to hear a bit more about their story. This was my favorite book of the series as well. Highly recommend.
  • I haven’t read in years..

    I really enjoyed this book! I read it in a day. But I gotta be honest the clown thing was hard to take seriously lol but at the end of the day it was good. I do wish the ending gave a little more though.
  • Loved this

    Wish the ending was further extended upon. Feel like right after everything finally came together, the book was over. But good read and I recommend!

    I found myself skimming over a lot of the story. Decent storyline but it was really dull for me.
  • Home Run! (pun intended)

    How does Tessa Bailey write the funniest female characters who are so relatable and pair them with their perfect grumpy soulmate? I may never know, but I love every second of it! Georgie’s personality and wit leapt from the pages and contrasted perfectly with Travis’ prickly exterior. Fake relationship done so, so right. Chock full of family drama, amazing banter, and steamy scenes with some great dirty talk. A happily ever after ending that was so romantic, it left me smiling for days! This was a home run! (pun intended).
