    Instantly you are drawn to this

    Let me just start this review by saying that if you have not read a book by Tessa Bailey then why are you even here? I mean, why are you waisting your time by reading this review?

    But in all seriousness, if you have not read a book by Tessa then I HIGHLY recommend that you start as soon as you can. There is no

    , making you crave more and more through every turn of the page, every swipe you make, every word you may listen. With FIX HER UP, she has gained so much more respect than what I original had towards her, because of how she describes the female main character—Georgie.

    When you are first introduced to

    . Known from their childhood, and been neighbors who live in Long Island (which is where I am from **squeals**), and grew apart because of their own differences.

    and his career comes to an end. Georgie has known him since she was little, the youngest sister of Travi's best friend Steven. Always running around and following them as a child. She always attended all his games, Travis' biggest cheerleader, Georgie became enamored by him. To him,

    , Travis' perspective towards her changes in the best of way. She is now all grown up, has bought her own house, is a clown for a living... YUP! You read that correctly, one of my favorite female characters of 2019 is a CLOWN FOR A LIVING!

    Georgie is a clown for a living ladies a gentlemen, it does not get better than this. And

    a female role in which she enjoys the perspective of entertainment for kids. Yes, it is a fictional story in a fictional world but I just adore how unique her career is in comparison to other careers we read about in romance novels. She is an independent individual, in which is also another shot of perfection about this novel. She is all grown up now,

    The affection he has towards her charisma and attitude really warms your heart. You just want to hug Travis, you want to ravish him! Of course in the best of ways... **wink wink** But he is not only sweet, he is this

    Seriously ladies (and gents, depending on your taste) you will be enthralled at how lovable Travis truly is. Especially when he is in awe of Georgie;

    The story plot itself continues after agreeing to a deal of being in a

    side of a relationship. Travis' restraint is at its thread or truly wanting Georgie, while she is virgin who is still enamored with her childhood/teenage crush. Once they are together however, everything around dissolves and it's only

    And once you read their story, your heart will forever be melted with Tessa's writing.

    Overall, FIX HER UP is a comedic

    Once you read Tessa's writing, there is no going back. There is no thinking "Oh should I read it?" There is only thinking "adding to my TBR and my bank account is going to hate me." (**laughs at own joke) Thank you to Tessa for always being a sweetheart, Long Island girls have to stick together in the best of ways ;)

    Do not let this adorably unassuming cover fool you: this book was NAUGHTY AS HELL and I loved it SO MUCH. I buddy read this with

    and

    and it was such a fucking great experience. Brb while I immediately re-read this bc I have a mighty ass need. Holy shit, y’all. READ DIS BOOK

    Best romance of 2019? Probably. Holy shit, friends,

    blew me and every expectation I had out of the water. I will say, don’t let the *cute* cover fool you, this book has many explicit sex scenes, but it was some of the best sex, and best dirty talk, I’ve ever read in my entire life. BRB, buying everything Tessa Bailey has ever written.

    Best romance of 2019? Probably. Holy shit, friends,

    blew me and every expectation I had out of the water. I will say, don’t let the *cute* cover fool you, this book has many explicit sex scenes, but it was some of the best sex, and best dirty talk, I’ve ever read in my entire life. BRB, buying everything Tessa Bailey has ever written.

    But this is a story about two people who grew up in the same small town together. But when one comes back five years later, they both realize that maybe they can build a happier future with help from the other one.

    - 23, An actual clown for children’s birthday parties, and the baby of her family, and they always let her know it by never taking her seriously, no matter what she does.

    - 28, Newly retired professional baseball player, because of an injury. But now he is very much struggling to be more than just a baseball player, especially after moving back to his hometown.

    Both Georgie and Travis want to be taken more seriously, and they want to be more than the expectations that are already placed upon them. So they strike up a friendship agreement, that starts off with a few meals, some cleaning, and a fireplace, but eventually becomes a full on fake-dating element so they can change what people think of them. Travis wants desperately to look more wholesome to the press so that he can get a job he wants, and Georgie wants people to see her as more than a innocent comic-relief.

    And obviously sex has to be completely off-limits, especially since Georgie is a virgin. Which is something that they both start to find difficult, yet Travis starts to realize that he might not want to be a steppingstone for Georgie. Meanwhile, Georgie knows that she wants things in life that Travis doesn’t want to give her. And, Lord, the angst is real, but it’s perfect, and I was living my best life watching these two also figure out how to deal with their attraction.

    Also, another reason this book means a lot to me is because of the story as to why I picked it up. Basically, me and three of my best friends have a group chat that we constantly talk in throughout the day, and

    set that group chat on fire describing the first sexual encounter in this book. So immediately, me, and

    , and

    all went and bought the audiobook. And we all listened together,

    swooning constantly, at our very different workplaces, and I will remember and cherish that experience forever. Fuck, my friends are the best, truly.

    Overall, this book was just perfect in my eyes, and I completely expect it to make my best of 2019 list come December. The dirty talk was 11/10, the actual sex scenes were 11/10, and this was maybe the best fake dating setting I’ve ever read in my life. I am now obsessed with Tessa Bailey, and I feel so blessed that I am able to read her entire backlist now.

    This was so stinking cute! A lighthearted and steamy romance full of laughs and sizzle the likes of which only Bailey can write. I read it with a smile on my face from beginning to finish.

    Georgette Castle is the perfect amount of quirky that I love in my heroines. She's the youngest sibling in her successful siblings and a bit of a black sheep. Her older siblings have their careers and life together, and Georgie is a professional clown. I mean, c'mon! How often do you read that? She's incredibly endearing and loves her job entertaining kids. But she also wants her family to finally see her as the woman that can do something right in their eyes.

    There's a dash of unrequited love when it comes to her and Travis. She's always harbored a secret crush on her older brother's best friend but she never had a hope in snagging his attention outside of being the annoying little sister that tagged along and mooned after her brother's friend. Travis is a professional MBA player whose career comes to a crashing halt after a bad injury. Now he's back in the small town he couldn't wait to get away from and dealing with his new reality.

    I loved the relationship development between Georgie and Travis. They start as unlikely friends and confidants that soon leads to something more when Travis finally sees the woman Georgie always was. I loved that it wasn't about Georgie changing herself to be seen in a different light by him but rather just coming into her own and comfortable with it. I loved the way that Travis brought her strength and helped her bring out the best version of herself and have her family finally see her. I loved that Georgie was a strong heroine outside of everything too. She didn't need Travis to help her, but she also brought out the best version of him.

    This was such a cute, endearing, and sweet romance. I loved the women's friendships and Georgie's brother's kooky wife. I loved the secondary characters and the dynamic they bring to this story and I seriously can't wait for more in this series!

    DNF @ CHAPTER 14

    After several starts and stops, its official, I’m pulling the plug on my first

    . I kept telling myself that if I just pushed through a little further, at some point the story would

    grab me. At 182 pages, that little exercise has proven futile. So, in the name of

    reading my best life, I think it’s time to cut my losses and move on to something more worthy of my time.

    I can’t deny, the uber-cute, smile-inducing cover made it darn near impossible to stop the runaway train of possibility in my brain. But, as we all experience at one time or another, the cover—no matter how great—is in no way indicative of the journey that awaits the reader. It all comes down to the combination of words and the feelings those words happen to inspire.

    I found

    to be a recycled mix of one too many romance tropes, told through a cast of characters I couldn’t take seriously, and sorry to say, all done with a bland delivery. Bailey’s words lacked the charisma necessary to keep this finicky reader engaged.

    And while there are bound to be hoards of readers who find virginal 23-year-old Georgie quirky, I’m not one of them. How was I supposed to take the girl seriously when (1) she’s a clown (

    ), (2) she’s

    been on a date (

    ) and (3) she just realized after a childhood of hand-me-downs that she could shop somewhere other than the thrift store (

    )? In Georgie's defense, *

    * correlates to the growth she strives for in multiple facets of her life—career, home, and physical appearance improvements—not only the fake relationship that she lands herself in. Yawn.

    Those who know me best, know my inner giddy girl is not one to shy away from the steamy scenes. BUT when that seems to be the only part of the story that’s managing to hold my interest, it’s time to cut and run. Although, I’ve gotta say, good ole “

    ” really knows how to make a girl blush.

    As always, this is simply the opinion of one reader; and a picky one at that. You shouldn't let my thoughts hinder your own experience or keep you from delving into Georgie and Travis’ little scheme. You never know, this might be

    next favorite.
