Overview

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

A steamy, hilarious new romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Tessa Bailey, perfect for fans of Christina Lauren and Sally Thorne!

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...

About the Author

New York Times bestselling author Tessa Bailey is originally from Carlsbad, California. The day after high school graduation, she packed her yearbook, ripped jeans, and laptop, and drove cross-country to New York City in under four days. Her most valuable life experiences were learned thereafter while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend, and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

She now lives in Long Island, New York with her husband and daughter. Although she is severely sleep-deprived, she is incredibly happy to be living her dream of writing about people falling in love.

Georgie Castle is the youngest of three, in her family that means she is the baby forever. Even though she’s turned her one-man kid’s party clown act into a solid enough business to buy her own home and dream of more, she’s still constantly dismissed or treated as a child. But when her brother’s best friend rolls back into town after an injury sidelined his baseball career, Georgie’s crush has come full circle – and is passed out and hungover on his bed, amidst piles of trash and discarded things. With her older brother and sister now running the family business, Brick and Morty, THE house flipping / renovation company in town, she’s gone her own way and rarely catches up to them. But now with Travis in town, and working for Stephen swinging a hammer, she’s interested in the whys and hows of Travis’ return. Travis had a crappy childhood, always unwanted, always the pawn in his parents’ endless arguments, and feeling as if he’d never ‘make it’ and always be a failure, he’s decided that relationships and commitments are not for him. And, while he did bend that rule for baseball, he soon learned that without that career pushing him into headlines, there’s not many people either. Discouraged, depressed and full of doubts, he’s returned to his childhood hometown to drown his sorrows and be left alone. But Georgie won’t let him be alone, and some part of him seeks her out for her belief in him, her ability to make him laugh and (gods forbid) her sexy little self – even if she is the little sister of his best friend. SO much fun, laughter and emotions in this story. Georgie in her clown calling is wonderful with kids – making memories, enjoying herself and utterly reveling in the childhood joys. But she doesn’t feel as if anyone takes her seriously as an adult and a businesswoman, and there isn’t anyone in her family who actually does stand up for her or take her seriously. Of course, choosing to enter into an agreement with Travis to be his ‘fake girlfriend’ in the hopes that it will help his image to land a coveted job doesn’t fill them with joy – and they are perhaps waiting for the other shoe to drop. But honestly, these two are just magical together – with her ability to honestly assess the man she knows and believe he can do more and be a better version of himself, as well as her inability to sit quietly when people’s prejudgments are unfair completely give Travis the confidence to try things that scare the life out of him, and perhaps things he never believed in before. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that he’s willing to indulge Georgie with more than a bit of dirty talking, completely unprepared for the reactions and heat that generates. I devoured this book in an afternoon – with smiles, frustrations and sighs (and plenty of ice water) throughout – a great start to a new series that leaves you with a smile. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via Edelweiss for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

I started this book at the beginning of my Beach Day and by the end of the day, I’d finished it!! It was my first Tessa Bailey, and it won’t be the last. I’m very excited about the next book in the series, which is about Rosie and Dominic, two characters in this book. I love a good Friends-to-Lovers story, especially when the couple has a complicated, rich history, which Travis and Georgie do. I also love that this book was not very angsty, and the author did not resort to the clichéd misunderstanding that many do. This is a fun, laugh out loud and verrrrrry sexy book.

I don’t normally like books with alpha male characters who take the part of alpha too literally, but this one came at just the right moment. (No pun intended.) I enjoyed listening to this and thought the narrator did an awesome job. The characters irked me, but that was where my disappointment ended. Not the book I was expecting, but I still enjoyed it nonetheless. Georgie isn’t used to being taken seriously. Her parents, siblings, and those that hire her as the entertainment for their kids party all think of her as the same thing: the youngest of the Castle clan. This doesn’t help when she’s the only one in her family that doesn’t work for the family renovation business. Though she’s tired of it, she lives with it day to day. Until her old high school crush comes back to town. Travis Ford played baseball in the pros until he sustained a career ending injury. He was wild during his career, so his team dropped him like a bad habit. Now that he’s better, he doesn’t really have anything to look forward to. Georgie comes up with a scheme where they might both get what they want…. Maybe. This was a very easy ready. I remember listening to it and laughing and not realizing that I’d already listened to it for 3 hours while I was updating my reading journal. And I think it was such an easy listen too because of the narrator. At times when they said the character did something, the narrator did them as well and made it sound like it was genuinely part of the story. It didn’t sound like she was “just reading” at all. What I didn’t like about this was the characters. A lot of the time I didn’t really care for Travis. But then I had to remind myself that each time she said that was ok and that’s what she wanted. As long as she said that’s what she wanted and she was happy, then who was I to judge? But me personally? I wouldn’t be ok with that. At some points I feel like he went too far. But to each their own. As for the rest of the romance, it wasn’t bad. And it was, whoa this one was HOT. That dugout scene made me super mad I was never a real fan of baseball Ijs lol This wasn’t my typical read, but in the end I really enjoyed this. I can’t wait to read the sequel, Love Her or Lose Her. I can’t wait to see those empanadas again!

This could have been a fun book if it wasn't so overtly full of gratuitous sex. Less is MORE! Leave something to the imagination. It would be so much better!

Okay, who hasn't had a childhood crush? Georgie is a relatable character (despite the random profession), and the author does a nice job meshing the larger-than-life Travis with the normal human that makes the story believable. I enjoyed the quirks of their romance and found the resolution, while formulaicly required, nicely implemented.

Umm!!! I didn't expect to finish this today. I had sectioned it off, thinking it wasn't going to grip my right away, boy was I wrong. I couldn't put this down at all...like at all. Travis and Georgie was so cute, I just needed to know how their story ended. Oh, boy I was not disappointed. After hearing the hype surrounding this by people I follow, I thought I was just going to find it okay, but I end up finding my favorite romance of the year. Georgie! She's by far one of my favorite heroine of all time. I loved everything about her and wouldn't mind being her friend. Travis. I'm going to be honest and said I pictured Kris Bryant as him. I love him. Hearing a few people complain about him constantly calling Georgie Baby girl I thought I wasn't going to like it, but I love it so much. Listen he can call me Baby girl all the time. The writing was great and so was the pacing. It left me wanting more at the end of each chapter.

To say that I loved this book is really an understatement. I have to say I wasn't expecting to love and enjoy this book so much that is now one of my top favorites of 2019. Guys if you are looking for a nice fake dating with the best sex scene ever told this is the book for you! I don't usually read books like this but after my bestie Sue @beutybookcorner mentioned this book I had to get it and I'm glad I did. The story follows Travis Ford a major league baseball player who suffers an injury and is forced to retired and Georgette Castle a 23 year old baby sister of Travis childhood best friend. Georgette works as a clown and dreams about having her own entertainment company but her family doesn't take her seriously. Travis is back in his hometown, depressed and just giving up on his baseball career due to the injury. Here comes Georgette and she has decided she will help Travis get back on track. He actually enters his apartment and throws food on him to snap him out of the rut he's in. Pretty soon these two are working together to help each other out and without giving too much away the fake dating starts and then really good and funny stuff starts happening. I loved Georgie from the begging, Travis it took a bit to grow on me but after a bit he started to grow on me and these too had the best sex scenes I have ever read. I'm not into smutty reads but this book got me picking up two other books by Tessa Bailey Baiting the Maid of Honor and His Risk to Take both have the great sex scenes even though I rated those books 3 stars they were good but not as good and awesome as Fix Her Up, so do yourself a favor and pick it up now! Overall, I loved everything about the story from characters to sexy scenes this was a great and story and I just couldn't put it down.

I loved reading about Travis and his Baby Girl. Sweet and hot and funny!!

I seriously could not put this down, but that’s not to say there aren’t some elements of the story that could have been better. First, I love Georgie so much. She is such an amazing character. She’s funny, cute, silly, and fiercely loving. She’s grown up crushing on her older brother, Stephen’s best friend, Travis. Travis was always hanging around their house because he had a bad home life so she sees him all the time. He was always into baseball and ends up in the MLB. Georgie was the dorky younger sister who showed up to every game to cheer him on. So she still has those butterfly feelings when Travis moves back to town after being injured from playing major league baseball. At the beginning of this story, Travis is really brusque, defensive, and depressed. His entire dream is ripped away from him too early and he feels lost without being able to play baseball anymore. When he moves back into his hometown, Stephen tries to cheer him up but Travis refuses to leave his apartment or do anything except wallow. Enter Georgie. She literally pours food all over his sleeping back to get him out of bed. You get the sense that she is exactly who Travis needs to push him into some kind of action. I liked seeing Travis warm up to Georgie. He starts to see her as more than just his friend’s younger sister, but to rely on her as a friend who challenges and supports him. In turn, we see that he has always been someone who validates Georgie’s feelings. Everyone in her family and in town brushes her off as a little kid (even though she is a grown woman), but he sees her efforts to be heard and taken seriously. He sees how much people in her life don’t seem to appreciate her. And he stands up for her. And that makes Georgie like Travis even more. It’s clear that they have some kind of chemistry and attraction between them, but it isn’t until they start fake dating that it kicks into high gear. So now you have two tropes: the friend’s sister & fake dating. The fake dating was done so well. We all know how it’s going to end, but whew! The attraction between these two was fire. The fake dating was done so well. Georgie wants to be seen as a grown woman capable of making her own decisions. Why not prove to everyone just how grown up she is by dating the good-looking athlete who has an infamous reputation for being a player? For Travis, a new career opportunity comes up for him, but he needs to change his reputation to something more wholesome and family-friendly. Why not do this by getting into a serious committed relationship with the town’s clown who plans children’s birthday day parties for a living? We all know how the fake dating trope ends. So let’s talk about what I thought could have been better. The fake dating trope: good. The brother’s sister trope: bad. We hardly get interaction between Travis and Stephen. Honestly, I think they hang out maybe twice in this book. Fortunately, we get just enough information that Travis hung out at Stephen and Georgie’s house a lot when they were younger to make this trope work okay, but it could have been done better. While this is a romantic comedy, the sex is a lot more in the general romance aka smutty category. which I happen to like. It just felt like this book wanted to mesh both of those together and it wasn’t as smooth as it could have been. Overall, I loved Travis and Georgie’s relationship and really enjoyed this book!

I ADORE this book. I read a *lot* of romance novels; most of them I read and then pass on to the next one, enjoying them in the moment but not letting them get any deeper than a fling. And then there are books like Fix Her Up which leave a lasting imprint on your soul. With characters you want to put in a little box in your heart and keep them there to take out and cuddle when you need them. Georgie Castle and Travis Ford definitely made a home in my heart with this one. I forget I was reading a book, I was so deeply immersed in Fix Her Up. Georgie and Travis became two of my best friends, and if you've read my reviews you know that main characters you want to be friends with are my #1 sign of a truly GREAT book. (Maybe it's the Hufflepuff in me, I don't know.) Tessa Bailey does a phenomenal job of writing characters that are very REAL - multi-dimensional characters that you want to root for, with flaws that not only make them relatable but also make you love them even more. Georgie's struggle to be seen as an adult rather than just the baby of her family isn't something I've struggled with, but I still empathized and identified with her. I love her joy and that she is just HAPPY being a clown for kids' birthday parties, while at the same time feeling a drive to succeed on a bigger scale and expand her business. Her sense of humor is so refreshing, and at the same time she's not just this fluffy silly character but instead has insecurities, as well as being a FIERCE lioness with a spine of steel when it comes to defending and supporting the people who loves. , as well as being a FIERCE lioness with a spine of steel when it comes to defending and supporting the people she loves. Georgie is whimsy and wonder, sass and strength. I want to both BE her, and be best friends with her. And then there's Travis. *swoony sigh* I love characters who struggle with insecurities, who are a little bit broken or damaged. Travis feels like he is disposable, and he works so hard to not make any real connections because they put him at risk of being thrown away again. The dynamic between Georgie and Travis is SO AMAZING. Georgie has been in love with Travis since she was 14 and he was 17, and it's great to see her love of this vision of him grow into something that about who he really is. And then Travis has always seen Georgie as his best friend's little sister. They both have a long history of caring about the other, which is such a great base on which to perch this precarious, sexually charged fake relationship. It's like a powder keg, and it's glorious to watch it blow. ;) Then they each defend the other so fiercely, it sets off all those golden sparks in my heart and just makes me melt. I LOVE that Georgie and her sister Bethany and their friend Rosie start a women's club to support each other and push each other to reach for their dreams. I love love LOVE seeing strong female friendships in books. Georgie uses her (fake) relationship with Travis to try to get her family and community to see her as an adult, but really she's started the work of being taken seriously herself by having a frank conversation with her sister. Fix Her Up is the first book in the Hot and Hammered series, and can be read as a stand-alone. At the time of writing this review, there's no info about the other books in the series, but I'm assuming the next book will be about Rosie and Dom, with another book about Georgie's sister Bethany.

SYNOPSIS | Georgie Castle is the youngest sibling in a close knit family and even though she is in her early twenties, people still treat her like the incompetent baby of the family. It probably doesn't help that she hasn't gone into the family demolition business but instead works as a clown at local children's parties. Travis Ford on the other hand is a renown local superstar baseball player (& womanizer), except he retired early because of a sports injury. He feels like his life is meaningless if he can't play the sport that he loves. In order for people to take both of them seriously they decide to start a fake relationship together, except they both start to develop romantic feelings... MY THOUGHTS | I have heard an abundance of raving reviews about this book and sadly it was such a disappointment in comparison. The romantic scenes were steamy, but the main male love interest was such a chauvinistic pig that I could not root for him (& his dirty talk made me want to smack him across the head as he sounds like a sex-crazed caveman). I like fake relationships and I like steamy sex scenes, but I didn't like this as much as everyone else seemed too.

Working as a clown at children’s parties brings her a joy she doesn’t find elsewhere, but Georgie is often overlooked by the adults and is still sitting at the kids table. When her older brother’s best friend Travis Ford retires early from the pro’s due to an injury and comes back home, Georgie knows two things. One, she’s not going to allow her childhood crush to sit and stew about his failures, and two she’s going to start being viewed as an adult and follow her life’s passions. One of which is Travis Ford. Georgie is a really fun heroine. She’s witty, fun, and serious about being taken seriously. When she throws and old carton of ice cream on Travis’s MLB worthy behind I knew I was going to like this girl! She is the only person in town who isn’t afraid of telling it like it is and Travis needs that slap upside the head to get out of bed and start finding a new focus in his life. Pretty quickly, Georgie becomes that focus. The brothers best friend trope is always tension filled. That hint of forbidden fruit in finding your best friends little sister sexy adds a dangerous element to their romance that is super fun to read. Stephen, Georgie’s older brother, is surprisingly stoic about the whole thing, especially since his buddy Travis is known for being a man-whore. His nickname is two bats for Pete’s sake! However, Travis has hints of vulnerability that help us connect with him beyond his hot exterior. I love the current trend in cartoonish romance novel covers but I think they may misrepresent the adult nature of some more ‘romantic’ novels. Georgie and Travis’s sexy fun times are very adult and at times kind of naughty. Be warned I’d rate this heat index 10+! Sometimes a super sexy scene might annoy me by distracting from the story, but these scenes actually added to the growth of the characters (no pun intended!) and moved the story forward. Georgie was finding her independence and self confidence and Travis was showing a vulnerability (even while being kind of domineering). If you hadn’t guessed, I really enjoyed Fix Her Up. I’m a sucker for women finding their inner power and Georgie was right in my wheelhouse. Her growing relationship with Travis was hot, but I also really liked how sweet he was with her and how he learned that needing people, and Georgie particularly, wasn’t a weakness it was a strength. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Romantic, Hot, Hot...
LibrarianSGP More than 1 year ago
From all appearances (namely, cover design and publisher blurb), this rom-com should be a hit. It features two popular tropes that usually progress from growing romantic relationship into passion: best friend’s little sister grows up and the fake relationship. However, Fix Her Up more closely resembles a tamer 50 Shades of Grey with frequent and ultimately boring sex scenes between a rich, chauvinistic, alpha playboy and an innocent virgin, and further strains plausibility when, following a physically rough deflowering, the couple agree that sex can’t happen again if they’re going to fake date. For washed-up, borderline alcoholic baseball “player” Travis, a good girlfriend will clean up his image, making him an attractive candidate for a sports commentator slot. The reason Georgie, a party clown (by choice) with a business degree, perpetuates the fraud is so she will be taken seriously by her family…and because she’s had a crush on Travis her entire life. The one saving grace is that they both mature by the end, Georgie by taking a stand and proving she can be successful and Travis when he acknowledges his faults, faces his demons, and becomes a better man. Readers who stick with it may root for a happily-ever-after, but, for many, the chauvinism and implausibility of the plot will make this one a hard pass. I received a complimentary ARC of this book from Avon Books through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Opinions expressed are completely my own.

WOW! Tessa Bailey totally surprised me. This book was hot, hot, hot!!! The characters are so real. I loved Georgie's self-realization/transformation. Travis was a vulnerable hero who takes a slow journey to true love.
Teewee125 More than 1 year ago
If this is the first book in the series I cannot imagine how hot and fantastic the rest will be. I could not put this book down. Travis is the kind of character you want to succeed more than ever. He never knew his own self worth. Georgie knew from when she was a little girl what kind of man he was. But no one ever listened to Georgie, always treated her as a child even when she was an adult. Travis and Georgie together allowed themselves to shine. To grow into the people they were and for everyone to notice them. These two have such a strong chemistry. Their scenes burn right off the pages. A great beginning to what I know will be an amazing and fantastic series.

Fabulous! Tessa Bailey hits one out of the park with this fun sexy rom-com. I loved everything about this one - don't be fooled by the cutesy cover, it's got vintage Bailey sex scenes, laugh out loud moments and two really likable characters who bring out the best in each other. It's a 'best friend's sibling' trope theme (one of my favorites) and watching Travis come to appreciate Georgie as more than just the girl who used to watch him play baseball from the bleachers and cheer him on is simply delightful. There are some interesting secondary characters and nice set up for future series books, which I will be standing in line for! If you're looking for a light-hearted , sexy and fun romance you'll want to have this one on your summer reading list!
Rachel Bennett More than 1 year ago
This is a fun rom-com to pick up this summer for a fun pool read. I will say to beware reading this in public...this is super spicy read! I always love a good fake romance story - in this case, the reasons for the fake relationship are a little out there. Georgie (can I just say this is the cutest name??) wants to be taken more seriously as an adult and Travis needs to appear settled and wholesome. Honestly, it seemed to me like their chemistry was so strong from the beginning that they were really just looking for a reason to date. For me, this settled at around a 3-star read because I was not very crazy about Travis. He had a lot of deep issues he was working through, which I understood, and I thought was portrayed well, but I had a problem with his, um, sexual persona? (lol) I don't even know how to describe it except that it made me wildly uncomfortable. If you are used to spicier reads then it may not bother you very much. Thank you to Netgalley and Harper Collins for providing me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

Georgie Castle is the youngest out of the Castle Siblings and instead of going into home renovation, she decided to be a children's party entertainer, making children laugh and smile. Travis Ford, Georgies older brothers best friend from child hood, has been gone for years pursuing his baseball career until he has a major injury causing him to retire his glove. Travis comes back to town to wallow in self pity for the loss of his dream and Georgie is determined to not let him sulk. Georgie has had a long term crush in Travis since they were kids but he will never get past her "little sister stays". Georgie is tired of always being treated like a child in her family so she is determined to step out and show the world how much of a woman she can be. Starting with her look. She gets her hair done, and gets a whole new wardrobe. Trading up from all the second hand clothes she usually buys. When Travis see's Georgie's new look he is taken back at how grown up she looks. One thing leads to another, and they end up coming up with a fake relationship to help Travis's career, and to help Georgie show her family she is not a little girl anymore. They may be in a fake relationship but are the feelings fake as well? I devoured this book in one sitting! I think any women can relate to Georgie at least some point in their life. Georgie has such an innocence about her and how she views the world you can't help but root for her! This book has the perfect amount of sweetness, sass, and steam!! This book had me swooning and is going on my list of favorites so far this year!!

Fix Her Up is deeper than you would expect; dealing with the way in which your identity and self-belief can be shaped by the people around you and not in a positive fashion. Both Georgie and Travis struggle with the way in which people perceive them, especially their families. Resulting in a self-fulfilling prophecy type situation whereby Travis and Georgie live down to the expectations and restrictions placed on them. The character growth is the foundation of Fix Her Up with the smexy being a secondary factor. I really liked how Georgie took control of her life and went for the things she wanted. A little help from her friends and the creation of a women’s support group – The Just Us League – ensure Georgie is on the right path to finding her true path. I also liked how Tessa portrayed the quest for affection and daddy issues prompting some questionable decisions – this was made all the more poignant for the gender switch, as truthfully (and disgracefully) I had never considered it in respect to the opposite sex. I adored the peripheral female characters in The Just Us League and cannot wait for their individual stories (Rosie and Dominic *fans self*). The events within Fix Her Up will have you melting into a puddle of goo – which is exactly what should happen when reading romance

I recently discovered Tessa Bailey with "Getaway Girl" and I am now a fan. Of course I jumped at the chance to review her latest book, "Fix Her Up" and it was everything I wished for. Georgie and Travis's story was sweet and funny and steamy. They are both trying to break from the molds they have been stuck it throughout their lives: Travis the charming player and Georgie the kid sister who won't grow up in her family's eyes. They find a way to help each other grow into the people they want to be. Read this book if you need a romantic pick me up. Read this book if you enjoy some really well-written steam with a great plot. Read this book if you've recently discovered Tessa Bailey and can't get enough of her writing.

Really enjoyed this romance novel! A retired baseball player and his best friend's sister reach an "agreement" to date one another to improve both of their images. In the process, they fall in love and have a lot of steamy sex! You'll love it...I promise!

I absolutely loved this book. The slow burn was realllll but once the flame was lit... DAMN it was STEAMY. Georgie was by far my favorite character. I loved her strong, blunt personality. I related to her in so many ways especially with her adventure in growing her confidence and leadership qualities. Travis is the guy all the girls want or perhaps I should say all the girls HAD. With a rather popular reputation with the ladies, it is Georgie who ultimately challenges him to rise above his childish ways and face his many fears. My only critique of this book is that when it ended I was like what the heck... THAT'S IT? I was definitely left wanting more and NEEDING more. Thank you NetGalley and HarperCollins for allowing me to read an ARC of this wonderful book in exchange for honest review.
