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.

Absolutely not.

The main character is a 22yr old smoking hot virgin (yea, ok.), who owns her own house (even less believable), that she bought with money she earned being a clown at birthday parties (even unbelievable in fiction.). Who’s older brothers best friend is a 28 yr old retired professional baseball player, and a ladies man.

He calls her “babygirl” as a pet name. (Barf).

I kept thinking “wow, this is the worst book I have ever read/listened to” it’s contrived and has terrible dialogue.

I kept listening in a horrific fascination. It was like a course on how not to write.

I can only describe the intimate scenes as uncomfortable and kind of gross. It was humorous to hear myself making unintentional sounds of disgust.

I absolutely stopped listening to this book somewhere in the middle of chapter 13. The main character is working her party clown job at a birthday party for five year olds. She volunteers her love interest to get his face painted. While she’s painting his face, and getting all hot and horny and having inner monologue about it, there is a group of five year olds around her with lines of dialogue.
Unacceptable.

I sincerely hope to never meet anyone that made it through this book. And especially never to meet anyone that enjoyed it.

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.

not for me

Travis's personality ruined the book for me. I couldn't wait for it to be over. If his personality wasnt that of someone who thinks hes gods gift to earth, I might've enjoyed it.

Cringeworthy

I guess enjoyed the first few chapters but the rest is absolutely trash, couldn’t even finish it. This will be the first book that I’ll be returning, it’s THAT bad.

Disappointed

The story is a literal clown female who often feels like she is not treated like an adult and her older brother’s best friend whom she has had a thing for since she was young. It sounds like a really cute story but unfortunately I could not finish. In my opinion, I did feel like the story was more of a situation instead of a solid plot. Also I found myself physically cringing during their sexual encounters due to the dirty talk. I think this would appeal to someone looking for a book that is hot and heavy and somewhat raunchy. I felt like there was a lack of character development and the men in this book are behind on the times. Disappointed I spent hours of my life listening to this.

Really steamy!

This was a good story. I enjoyed the characters and
the love scenes did not disappoint. I will say by the 50th time Travis called Georgie “baby girl” I was ready to scream. Pet names agitate me, especially if used too often. And they beat that one to death! That’s my only complaint. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys books like “The Hating Game!”

Mouthy... finger-y... and .... grindy

I’ve got to pay more attention when reading book summaries. When it mentioned Georgie being the town clown, I thought they meant Georgie was a big goof-ball. But no, Georgie dresses up as a clown, a lot, and does clown gags, with children, in face paint. Shudder. I hate clowns. HATE clowns. Also, the cartoon cover art and summary led me to believe this would be a perky Pollyanna winning over Mr. Pity Party when he comes back to town. What the cover and summary didn’t say is that Travis was a complete man-slut and Georgie is a virgin, two extremes I only tolerate in regencies. And there’s F bombs galore, but the profanity is still more tame than the nooky, which is mouthy and explicit (so much grinding, and fingers, and weird trash talking / domination considering the innocent Georgie). Only I’m not sure in the end if the writing was bad or if it was the narration that had me cringing as the female narrator tried to sound like a 28 year old Travis talking dirty to his 12 year old girlfriend. I kind of feel like I would give this 4-5 ⭐️ if the book had been narrated by Jacob Morgan, or if I had started off listening expecting a mouthy, raunchy romance instead of a perky Pollyanna rom-com.

Bad

The plot had potential but the way it was written was really off-putting and I struggled to finish it.

New writer worth a credit and more!

Fantastic new writer, with amazing wit and humor.!! Fabulous characters, with real issues, and awesome sexiness enhanced for our reading pleasure.!! I’m waiting for the next one, Hopefully a series is starting.!! The narrator was also new, but enjoyable to listen and always understood which character she was, will keep my eyes out for other work she has done as well.

She does it again

I’ve listened to this one twice now as once just wasn’t enough. Tessa bailey has the hottest men who know what they are doing in life and the bedroom. Add in a good dash of humour and quirky females and you have a Tessa bailey book. This one was just as amazing as all the rest of her books

Inner monologues were basic and very annoying

I thought the ramblings inside Georgie’s head about how great Travis was would stopped as the story picked up. They got longer and became so annoy I couldn’t finish reading.

This book is just awful

I absolutely hated this book! it was so awful I couldn't even finish listening to it, a complete waste of money.
Throughout the book the main character whined that no one was treating her like a grownup and yet allowed her love interest to call her "baby girl" which is plain creepy under any circumstances, but he even does it during sex, so so gross!!! If that were me I would be worried I was in bed with a pedophile.
I found this book to be a total cringe fest and would highly recommend you stay away from it. I gave it one star, I was being generous.

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.
