Publisher's Summary

A brand-new romantic comedy from New York Times best seller 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....

25% adorable love story 75% explicit sex talk

This book feels like such a bait and switch. At some moments it’s this sweet, cute love story between a girl no one takes seriously and a washed up baseball player wallowing in his rejection. It’s got all the fun tropes: brother’s best friend/best friend’s little sister, celebrity crush, childhood crush, famous guy/loser girl, fake relationship, and so on. I loved the Just Us League too. BUT when it switched to all this dirty talk and explicit sex scenes, it robbed the story for me. I wanted to love this. But I just can’t recommend it.

Great story but rushed ending

This is a great book! The characters were a lot of fun to read, the story steamy from start to finish and there were really interesting plot lines as wel. What bothered me is that I felt like they rushed the ending. Not only were there some parts of the main characters story that was never really resolved, but there were also 3 side stories that ever resolved either. I'm hoping that since this is a new book the author is planning on creating a series with each of the other characters going deeper in their storylines. Other thank being kinda annoyed at the hanging plot lines this is a good solid romance. Nice fluffy fun.

I’m left craving more

This book is definitely One of Tessa’s best it’s hot and sweet so sweet I think I have a cavity. It’s light and fluffy but deals with so many issues about self worth and self esteem and how people view themselves vs how others see them.

I nearly cried watching the minutes tick by because I wanted so very much for this to never end. It deserves a hundred stars but 5 will have to do

Not clowning around, this book is wonderful!

A childhood crush meets crushed dreams meets crushed ideas for grownup relationships. I loved everything about this story! Written with humor and feelings, realistic family dynamics, both good and bad. Hot!Hot!Hot sex but enough feels to keep it from being ridiculous. Perfectly narrated and enough questions about the other characters that I’m hoping for books about the Just Us League
women to come!

Really enjoyed it

Okay, I love this author, so reading this book was a no brainer. But did you get the fake relationship part in that blurb? With an unrequited crush? Oh, yes, I needed to read this one. AND I wasn't disappointed.

Their families are friends. Georgie grew up with a huge crush on Travis. But he only sees her as his best friends little sister. So when it's Georgie that throws food, yes I said food, at his sorry behind to get his head on straight, Travis takes notice. That's the point where their friendship begins. I loved that the book didn't bounce right into a fake relationship. No, they became friends first. That made the set-up perfection. It didn't take over the story at all. It was just a small piece. Loved that.

The characters really drew me. I'm interested in all of them and can't wait for more stories from this group of friends. I loved how they supported and cared for each other. But I will admit that the best part of the characters in this group was Travis. There is one scene where he stands up for Georgie to her family. I was cheering him on. Go Travis! He was spot on with the way they dismissed her idea because they saw her as young and not a part of the adults in the room. I loved this better than the group meetings, the apology latte, the wardrobe makeover, and the tear stained face make-up job. Lots of caring in this book.

Travis is one sexy baseball player. And the attraction between them starts quickly. As Travis begins to notice what's under that ball cap Georgie has on, he's definitely interested. But she is his best friends little sister. So he resists. I love a guy resisting. It's so much fun to watch. And when he quit resisting? That was HOT.

The pace of the book and the writing are awesome. I just didn't want to put it down. The story pulled me in and held me there. I couldn't wait to see what would happen next until....okay there was this point. I'll admit that when "the mistake" was made and I cringed, I was flipping to the end, just to quickly check. Yeah, it was good, so I could go back and read some more. I don't feel bad that I did this. It just means that I was so invested in these characters that I couldn't stand the idea of them not getting a happy.

There is more coming and I have questions. There is a flip I want details about. There is a relationship that I need to know what happens next with. There is a sister that I need to know about. And more. I'll be waiting for more.

The read is incredibly good contemporary romance with that excellent side of chic lit to make it better.

Hot! Good character development too

I appreciated that the female protagonist, though inexperienced, was portrayed as empowered rather than as clueless. Great story and performance!

super sweet super steamy and super funny!

This was my first Tessa Bailey book and it did not disappoint!!! Going to binge her older books now before my beach trip is over and I have to lock myself in my closet away from my kids so I can finish a chapter! This story's heroine was just what the hero needed!!

Brilliantly Funny!

Oh, my word brilliantly funny!!!
I’ve never been a huge Romcon fan!
But Tessa Bailey seemed to convert me with Fix Her Up!
Just a charismatic storyline that pulls you in!! To a point where all you want to do is stay in the audiobook trance! Oh, by getting lost in the quirky characters and loving every single second of it!
Well, let's just face it Charlotte North killed it with her narration and I’m a huge audiobook snob!!! Boom a win for me!

What century is this?

At first pass I did like the story and swap between naughty and nice parts of the story line. However, baby girl reallly? Dominating and overbearing male characters, ugh

Worst Romance I've ever read!

I rarely leave reviews. But this book was so bad I couldn't not write one.

The entire story is so cringe-worthy I couldn't even get through it. Nothing is realistic. It's all too fast and there is so much wrong with this story I literally just can't. The narrators are SO annoying. The big "problems" these characters have are just laughable. All of it was just bad.

Trust me. DO NOT use a credit on this.

Icky pet name ruins the story.

Pretty full on dirty talk combined with a questionable pet name ‘baby girl’ just kinda ruined it for me.
