Book Review: Fix Her Up


Fix Her Up by 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.

My Rating: 4.5 Stars

My Thoughts: Oh man, this book was really cute! But it also had a surprising amount of depth to it for what I thought was going to be a quick, light read. I adored the characters of Georgie and Travis. They were amazing. I felt for Georgie the most, trying to be taken seriously as the youngest sister with a bunch of brothers is a tough challenge in a family like hers. Her emotions just jumped off the page at me. I also enjoyed Travis and seeing him fight his feelings for Georgie was fun! There was angst, there was comedy, and there was deep emotions- all of which combined to create a really great story. I wanted to smack her family on more than occasion while reading but when Travis stands up for her finally, all bets were off and I was firmly on his side! I definitely recommend this one!
