Synopsis: Willa Peet isn’t interested in love. She’s been there, done that, and has the shattered heart to prove it. Ready to shake the breakup,she heads to Dublin, Ireland. But there’s a problem. A dark-haired, blue-eyed problem with a bad attitude that rivals her own. And he’s not doling out friendly Irish welcomes.
Shane Claymore just wants to race. The death of his father forced him off the Formula One circuit, but he’s only staying in Dublin long enough to sell the Claymore Inn and get things in order for his mother and younger sister. He never expected the sarcastic American girl staying at the inn to make him question everything.
But even as Willa and Shane’s fiery natures draw them together, their pasts threaten to rip them apart. Can Shane give up racing to be with the woman he loves, or will Willa’s quest to resurrect the tough-talking, no-shit-taking girl she used to be destroy any hope of a future together?
Review: I really enjoyed Willa’s book, it was nice to get to see her a few years later and all grown up. I’ve been hoping that we would get a Willa book since we first met her in Ginger and Derek’s book, Protecting What’s His, and it was great news when Tessa Bailey announced that she was writing one. Bailey has written an engaging story, not just a love story, but a story about a young girl trying to find herself. The Irish setting was a huge plus.
I found Willa and Shane to both be enjoyable characters. I enjoyed the snark between the two of them. Their begrudging attraction to each other that turned into love as they got to know each other better was much preferred to the love at first sight we usually get with contemporary romance.
Bailey has written yet another great book, something I’ve come to expect from her. I was pulled into the story within the first few pages and only put the book down because my eyes would not stay open any longer. Unfixable is an enjoyable, lovely read that could be easily finished in one sitting, and is definitely worth the time.
I received an ARC of this book from Entangled Embrace. This in no way affected my review.
