About this deal

Fine I guess but tell me you're a clown and act immature then complain about being treated like a child one more time! If you’re a fan of brother’s best friend books, the fake dating troupe, or your just looking for a hella hot and feel good romance, pick up Fix Her Up. The sexual relationship between Travis and Georgie is sizzling, but the emotional journey from fake relationship to true love is just as compelling.

When she proposes a wild scheme—that they pretend to date, to shock her family and help him land a new job—he agrees.

There was this lack of awareness all the way through this story with both Georgie and Travis having no idea what the other one is feeling. Which btw starts from discarding the over-sized sweaters and the rough old jeans she used to wear and start looking like a mature woman by wearing sexy dresses like a pencil skirt which shows the curves of her hips and her beautiful, freshly-waxed legs. I was so confused why these women made a “club” whose focus was hating men and yet all they did was get together and talk like. The relationships are portrayed with compassion and honesty, and the author’s note at the end that explains Hoover’s personal connection to the subject matter is a must-read. I can accept the part where he thinks of Georgie as the girl who actually saved him from being a complete mess all the time.

From metaphors and similes that literally made no sense to cringey dialogue to sexual descriptions that made absolutely no sense, this book needed an editor, bad. From both a storytelling/craft perspective and the actual situations themselves, the sex was horrid.Any enjoyment that could have been gleaned from the sexy scenes was ruined by Travis’s completely disgusting/cringey/terribly written dirty talk and the author’s absurd descriptions. 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. Anyone with an actually torn rotator cuff can tell you that regular pain killers do absolutely nothing to dull the agony it leaves you in. travis always seems to be apprehensive about getting physical with georgie becaue she's his best friend's little sister and because he might have a problem with it.

I love the illustrated cover trend, but I have to start this review by saying that the cover of Fix Her Up doesn’t quite match the story. genuinely haven’t seen the phrase “feminine outrage” since the last time i read a SJM novel, and i wish i had never seen it againnnn.I love that Tessa has created a female role in which she enjoys the perspective of entertainment for kids. Please read the above quote and acknowledge that he thought of her in a young, sisterly way while TOUCHING HER BOOB and LIKING IT. I'm going to be doing a video that goes into way more detail because I have a whole list, but from "baby girl" to things be described as male for no reason? I honestly think if the author embraced that a bit more and made it more explicitly kinky, people might have had less issues. It's fun, it's flirty and yes, it's ridiculous at times (can I just mention that Travis' nickname is Two Bats!

Despite the better option right in front of her, an unexpected complication forces Lily to cut ties with Atlas, confront Ryle, and try to end the cycle of abuse before it’s too late. travis thinks a lot abut her being a virgin and it's a motivation but also a reason for him to back away, i really don't get him. With everybody handling Travis with kid gloves, Georgie takes it upon herself to draw him out of his slump. I only read this because I heard the sex scenes were phenomenal, but I was literally crying laughing throughout them.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. Firstly, Travis literally isn't interested in her until she 1) gets a haircut and wears tighter clothes and 2) another man takes an interest in her.
