About this deal

It was just oh I love this dude hehehe I'm a clown ugh I am angry caveman for no reason wait what is a feelinG? It put me in a reading slump I fought to just finish my reread of chain of gold and connected stories. I honestly think if the author embraced that a bit more and made it more explicitly kinky, people might have had less issues.

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. There’s a fair number of sex scenes (so be warned), and the language used by both parties reads more kinky than I would have expected from a mainstream romance. The main problem in this book that made me cringe was the fact that Georgie is literally a clown as her career, which is a fact that the author brought up—i shit you not—almost every page.

I don't think anything that seriously utters the phrase "concrete buttocks" should get more than 1 star. because I hadn't read any romances lately and my other current read had zero romance (as a subplot) in it too. I can’t deny, the uber-cute, smile-inducing cover made it darn near impossible to stop the runaway train of possibility in my brain.

It takes him a significant amount of time to realise his opinion should've been the same before she changed, but I still thought it was gross behaviour.I only read this because I heard the sex scenes were phenomenal, but I was literally crying laughing throughout them. what he said yesterday wasn’t arrogance talking – it was simply more common for women to get attached when sex was part of the equation. The club having captured something in the zeitgeist, soon every woman in town clambers to be a member, and Georgie wryly tells Travis, “You should all be seriously alarmed how many women showed up. 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. i am honestly crying because what the hell is that supposed to mean, please do not refer to her breast as LITTLE.

How was I supposed to take the girl seriously when (1) she’s a clown ( are there even any children on planet Earth that like clowns anymore?The main female character is Georgie, a woman defined by her virginity, her clown career, and her unexplained crush on her brother's bestie Travis. Lily swears she’ll never end up in another abusive home, but when Ryle starts to show all the same warning signs that her mother ignored, Lily learns just how hard it is to say goodbye.

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. Both of them are shocked at the now undeniable chemistry between them, and for Travis those feelings are accompanied by confusing and overpowering possessiveness.

These characters had so much growing to do, and if that was shown in a complete, complex, thought out, well developed arc, this could have been great, but alas, it's trash.
