Publisher's Summary

In Tessa Bailey’s latest rom-com, two enemies team up to flip a house...and the sparks between them might burn the place down or ignite a passion that neither can ignore!

Hair, makeup, clothing, decor...everything in Bethany Castle's world is organized, planned, and styled to perfection. Which is why the homes she designs for her family's real estate business are the most coveted in town. The only thing not perfect? Her track record with men. She's on a dating hiatus, and after helping her friends achieve their dreams, Bethany finally has time to focus on her own: flip a house, from framework to furnishings, all by herself. Except her older brother runs the company and refuses to take her seriously. 

When a television producer gets wind of the Castle sibling rivalry, they’re invited on Flip Off, a competition to see who can do the best renovation. Bethany wants bragging rights, but she needs a crew, and the only member of her brother's construction team willing to jump ship is Wes Daniels, the new guy in town. His Texas drawl and handsome face got under Bethany's skin on day one, and the last thing she needs is some cocky young cowboy in her way. 

As the race to renovate heats up, Wes and Bethany are forced into close quarters, trading barbs and biting banter as they remodel the ugliest house on the block. It's a labor of love, hate, and everything in between, and soon sparks are flying. But Bethany's perfectly structured life is one kiss away from going up in smoke, and she knows falling for a guy like Wes would be a flipping disaster.

"Her voice feels as fresh and contemporary as a Netflix rom-com." (Entertainment Weekly)

Laughable Moments

I think I like this one the lost out of the 3, there were much more laughable and cute moments in this one. Also the real life of of imperfections and insecurity. Narration was flawless.

My favorite so far!

I love the books in this series and the quirky characters but this one may be my favorite storyline!! I love Bethany and Wes’s chemistry since they are so different and love their banter! Amazing performance as well. I liked the conflict of Wes growing up in foster care and his character growth as well as Bethany’s journey to be a reformed perfectionist. For sure worth the credit!!!

Wonderful

Charlotte North is an excellent narrator and does a wonderful job voicing the different characters in the story. I really enjoyed the third installment of this series, the book is funny and lighthearted at times but also does a great job of diving into Wes and Bethany’s relationship in a way that helps you feel like you know them
