Blurb From Goodreads:
When your back is against the wall, can you change the person life’s experiences have molded you to be?
Fiona Pierce is many things to many people. Dutiful daughter to her loving parents, fiercely loyal friend to her very tolerant bestie, half-assed employee to her laundry list of bosses, and dedicated fashion goddess and spreader of good cheer to the world at large. But Fiona is hiding something behind her irresistible smile – something she’s determined to keep to herself.
Mark Beckett doesn’t do complicated. Saddled with lingering baggage from his childhood, Mark sails through life one girl at a time – with frequent gym breaks in between. He likes his life just how it is and doesn’t see any need to change his work-hard/play-hard attitude.
When an unexpected blast from the past threatens to turn his family’s life upside down, Mark finds help in the unlikeliest of places – specifically the pint-sized princess who has a knack for pushing his buttons.
Can you overcome your fears and embrace the happiness you might just deserve? And, perhaps more importantly, can you really fall in love with someone who is so damn insufferable?
I’m not sure where to start! This was such a fun read, I giggled almost all the way through this book with a few aww moments thrown in with some tears. Now that I’ve had the pleasure of reading this one I will definitely have to read the first book! Fiona is a trip, I’m pretty sure I fell in love with her and now have a book hangover. And Mark, swoon, he will most definitely steal your heart and make your panties wet but I’m calling dibs!! This is a must read then reread and then maybe just one more time type of story. The characters are so adorable you can’t help but smile at their craziness. I wish they were real so we could hang out all the time, I’m sure my face would hurt from all the laughing but it would so totally be worth it. Grab yourself a copy and enjoy the ride, you won’t be disappointed!
Hi, I’m Sylvie Stewart and I’m a spy. No, wait, I meant to say I’m an author of Romance and Romantic Comedy. Really.
Like the characters in my books, North Carolina is where I call home these days, and I love love love it here! You should totally move here.
When I’m not writing, I’m hanging out with my kids or arguing with my husband about which of us is funnier. It’s usually a tie. Reading is, of course, a huge hobby of mine, but I’m also getting into kayaking these days and, in case you were wondering, those two activities cannot be combined. I also enjoy hanging out with my friends and my extended family, sharing some laughs and a glass of wine. I should note at this point that wine goes very well with both reading and kayaking so next time I talk about my interests maybe I should include some kind of Venn diagram or something. So that’s about it. Now you know all about me.
P.S. I really am a spy but they told me not to tell anyone so, you know, can you keep it on the down low? Awesome!
