"The story moves fluidly from one situation to the next, with lots of hot sex in between, and Bailey will keep readers on their toes as the 'couple' starts to realize this might be the real thing. Perfect for fans of Christina Lauren and Helena Hunting."-- "Booklist"
"Delightfully intense and creative sex scenes and potent emotions will reward both fans and new readers alike."-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"
"Tessa Bailey's books completely, utterly, totally wreck me."-- "Sophie Jordan, New York Times bestselling author, praise for the author"

About the Author
Tessa Bailey is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author originally from Carlsbad, California. Her most valuable life experiences were learned while waitressing at K-Dees, a Manhattan pub owned by her uncle. Inside those four walls, she met her husband, best friend, and discovered the magic of classic rock, managing to put herself through Kingsborough Community College and the English program at Pace University at the same time. Several stunted attempts to enter the work force as a journalist followed, but romance writing continued to demand her attention.

Then yesterday I was looking for the perfect read to help block out the real life dramas and this popped up. And BAM Tessa Bailey bubble activated. Despite a serious lack of sleep recently I couldn't have put this down if the house was on fire.
Georgie and Travis were perfect. Both together and separately. Of course Travis was possessive, jealous, growling, dirty talking and I loved him from the first. But having his point of view made me love him more even harder. And when he came to her defense I couldn't have been happier.
The only thing that I didn't love was the ending. I would have killed for an epilogue but I am hoping we will catch up with them down the road as we get more couples. And honestly I was so in this book the whole time I was reading it that I don't think I could ever get enough. And now I am off to stalk a release date for the next book because I am thinking they are going to be even hotter and Dom is going to be even more alpha. Can't wait.
These two people have issues - Family issues. Career issues... As their maybe real, then sort-of fake, then definitely real (and totally HOT) relationship develops, they learn that together they can grow and evolve and move forward and face their stuff together. It's delightfully sweet and satisfying to go on that journey with them.
Tessa Bailey's writing is always great and this is a longer read, allowing for a satisfyingly broad cast of characters to support Travis and Georgie as they work their way to their HEA. Highly recommended!
I'm definitely going to read more of Tessa Bailey's work.

Georgette is the youngest of her siblings and often overlooked, not part of the family business and the family clown. Literally - she runs her own party entertainment business. Travis is an ex baseball star who’s found himself back in his hometown, jobless, prospectless and really just in a bit of a downward spiral.
This is a best friend’s sibling and fake relationship romance, with Travis being best friends with Georgie’s older brother. I loved the forbidden element of their relationship, sneaking around and both in denial a bit about what they’re up to. Georgie meddles in Travis’s life mid-wallow and pulls him out of his isolation and back to life. Both characters support each other and here comes the fake relationship. Travis has to clean up his romantic life to win a job he would love.
The banter between the characters, morphing into a sexy, steamy (fake) relationship was great to read. I loved the transition both of them went through, and as always with this plot blurring of the lines between fake and real occurs. I love the denial and natural angst that brings.
I love discovering a new author that makes me immediately want to read anything and everything they’ve ever written. As I said I immediately bought the second book in the series and I’m looking forward to the third!
Georgie is an actual clown for children’s birthday parties. She is really good at it and wants to be taken more seriously as a business woman. As the baby of her very well known family she feels no one takes her series.
“Why do women believe they need an occasion to dress up? Dress up for life, goddammit!”
Travis is a newly retired professional baseball player, who had to retire much to early due to an injury. He is struggling with moving back to his home town feeling like a loser.
“How do you do that? You . . . accept me. Exactly as I am. But you still change me for the better.”
The chemistry she has with Travis is out of the park. It gave me little tingling feelings in my chest while reading it. This book is flirty, sweet romance and a bit ridiculous at times but kept my entertained to the last page. I loved the secondary characters which is always a big plus for me and found the dynamic they bring to this story and I can't wait for more in this series, in fact I've already bough the next in the series.
I don’t know if I need to laugh, or scream, or cry, I can’t handle the level of feels this book has given me.
I absolutely love Georgie. She became the joker to be seen at a young age, and she didn’t believe in herself enough to be anything other than a clown. She found her voice, and her strength not because of Travis but thanks to him. He boosted her up and made her feel like her voice mattered.
Travis' world was turned upside down by Georgie. He pulled himself out of the gutter, or his almost rat infested apartment to be precise and found his place in the world again.
The chemistry between them was so intense I loved it right from the beginning.
It was laugh out loud funny, the things Georgie came out with. I love that it emphasized how humiliating teen crushes can be, she practised making out on her hand.. Like come on, it was just perfect.
That ending ugh, the feels are intense.
I loved all the side characters too, I can’t believe we’re getting a Rosie and Dom book, eeek! I NEED IT NOW!!! I hope we get a little of what’s next for Georgie and Travis in Love Her or Lose Her. I’m not ready to say goodbye to them yet.
The narrator Charlotte North is absolutely wonderful. I’ll be looking out for her in future.
Okay, here’s one of my many favourite moments;
“you have to fight for what you deserve. What you want is no more or less important than what anyone else wants.”
Now I am all for steam in books, but at times (I can't believe I am about to say this but) even I thought it bordered on being too much (this might be down to the fact I was trying to read it with family members around!) steam and not quite enough plot. Saying that I did still really enjoy it and I liked the secondary characters and the interactions between everyone. The over use of 'Baby Girl' did start to grate somewhat towards the end though.
I would recommend this for fans of romance, but would just caveat by saying if you don't want to read about sexual exploits it might be best to give this one a miss.
I absolutely love this story. Straight from page one, I loved this book. Georgie was the perfect heroine, likeable and sweet but enough of a backbone to not be taken advantage of. And Travis was the dreamy hero we all love. Their love was a slow burn, but once they enter into their fake relationship it doesn't take long to realize that it wasn't fake at all. The chemistry between these two jumped off the page. I could see this as a movie and could only dream of seeing this on the big screen. This book is very well written, the love scenes are perfect (and pretty dirty) I can't wait to read more Tessa Baily in the future.
