Ali’s November 2019 Monthly Wrap-Up

Linking up with Monthly Wrap-Up Round Up at Feed Your Fiction Addiction.

Happy December everyone!! The Christmas season is upon us for all who are celebrating. Christmas is my absolute favorite!!! My daughter and I have been watching a different Christmas movie every day and doing lots of fun Christmas crafts. I’m a total workaholic, so I’ve been doing my best to slow down and be present in the moment and make memories!

I only read 11 books in November. That’s probably my least amount all year, and I’m betting December will be similar. But, that’s okay because I’m enjoying the holiday season. Plus, the holidays really amp up my to-do list. My books read total is now at 172.

Fix Her Up ~ Review

Ali here ~

Title: Fix Her Up
Series: Hot & Hammered #1
Author: Tessa Bailey
Release Date: Oct. 11, 2019
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Blurb:A brand new romantic comedy from New York Times bestseller 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…
