Willa Peet won the trip of a lifetime! She gets to spend a month in Ireland at the Claymore Inn. The trip couldn’t come at a more perfect time. Willa’s sister Ginger is starting her much deserved family after raising Willa when their mother went AWOL. Willa is so happy for her sister and yet she is a bit lost. She doesn’t feel right in her skin anymore. She broke up with the boyfriend who was intent to mold her into someone else and got on a plane to Ireland. She never expected what came next!
Shane Claymore lives for the rush of racing his Formula One car. However, since the death of his father he has been forced to abandon racing, come home and run the Inn with his sister. Shane is determined to get things in order with the Inn and sell it to the highest bidder. His sister Faith hates the thought of losing the Inn and the only home she has known. Shane isn’t concerned with her opinion. He only cares about making sure she doesn’t get into any trouble! His definition of trouble drastically changes as he tries to pick up the wild, smart ass American that will be staying at the Inn for a month.
When Willa and Shane meet it is reminiscent of the “Thrilla in Manilla” fight between Muhammad Ali and Joe Fraser. There is one major difference…as Willa and Shane spar the heat rises and an unforgettable love story is born.
Tessa Bailey makes magic with Unfixable! I had the honor of meeting Willa in an earlier book of Bailey’s, Protecting What’s His. Willa and her sister Ginger where running from a dark past. And while their time in Chicago definitely helped Willa doesn’t come into her own until she’s in Ireland. Willa is forced to discover what will make her happy. Willa definitely doesn’t like that she is drawn to the stubborn and sexy Shane.
Shane is in the opposite situation. He believes he knows exactly what will make him happy and that is getting rid of the family Inn. He wants to race, he’s good at it and he needs that feeling of accomplishment. He doesn’t expect the feisty American girl to mess with his head so much.
Ms. Bailey has written a story that takes possession of the reader, pulls them into the mind of a strong, yet conflicted young woman and then brings them on the ride of a lifetime in Unfixable! This is the type of story that inspires women to charge forward. It is possible to find your own happily-ever-after in this country or the next. 🙂 Willa and Shane challenge and encourage each other. Their passion never fades as the story unfolds in Unfixable.
Tessa Bailey’s Unfixable is a shining star in the New Adult genre.
