Unfixable by Tessa Bailey + Giveaway

Genre: New Adult Contemporary
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?
I thought I was unfixable before. Now, I'm a plane-crash wreckage.
A vacation hook up in Ireland no less. How can I resist it? I willingly stepped into Willa Peet's shoes for a day and totally enjoyed my little day trip. I loved the rainy, damp and cold weather, the cozy Claymore Inn and of course Shane Claymore and his wacky family. UNFIXABLE by Tessa Bailey is a cool post break-up/rebound/true love story that has a lot of heart, no wonder lots of readers loved this new adult story too! 

I'm sure you've seen this title around a lot in the blogosphere in the past few days so I won't regale you with redundancies. I'll just be direct to the point that I love Willa's spirit. She's very self aware and understands what she needs to work on. She may have vulnerabilities but she knows how to work around that. Fake it til you make it right? Shane saw through that and what started as a harmless flirtation quickly turned into a soul connection. There were ups and downs as Willa and Shane worked the kinks of their blossoming relationship but nothing too serious and dramatic. UNFIXABLE is relatively mellow compared to other new adult novels that are designed to make our hearts sob in desperate frustration.

UNFIXABLE is purely about love, the different faces of it from romantic, familial to friendship, and the phases it goes through. Even if the story is primarily Willa's Shane's character didn't fade in the background as he has some healing and growing up to do as well. Shane's family in particular I enjoyed a lot as they were very present in the story. Kitty, Shane's mom, is a whack-a-doodle and I won't mind eating her stale toast which she keeps in her apron. Ginger, Willa's sister, is my second fave, she doesn't have a lot of face time in the story but she was a strong voice of reason especially during the conflict. UNFIXABLE is my kind of new adult read, it's not a sexed-up-girls-gone-wild tale, it's not an agonizing story about tortured souls, instead it's a light-hearted and hopeful love story about love lost and a better love found.
Love comes in many forms. It's not always sweet. Or comfortable. Sometimes it's selfish and consuming. Volatile.
It makes choices for you. It demands you obey it, not taking no for an answer. And it's usually right. It knows you better than you know yourself.
It turns you inside out. Occasionally, it hurts, but in the best way imaginable. To remind you of how powerful it is. To keep you feeling alive. [This is Ginger telling these things to Willa. Now you know why I love her! P.S. This quote is a condensed version of a scene]

Tessa lives in Brooklyn, New York with her husband and young daughter. When she isn't writing or reading romance, Tessa enjoys a good argument and thirty-minute recipes.

  11. I popped in for the cover (so sexy!), peeked at the blurb, and then stayed for the review. This does sound like a different sort of NA. I just might have to try it.
