Unraveling Him: A Small Town Family Romance (The Bailey Brothers Book 3) Kindle Edition
Stoic, growly Evan Bailey has enough on his plate. A growing business, a pack of brothers who drive him crazy, a gossip-loving small town, and a rivalry that runs deeper than any family feud. Love? That’s a hard pass. He already learned the hard way that he’s better off alone.
Fiona Gallagher has a problem. Or more like ten, but who’s counting? The trouble with her car is just the cherry on top of the crap sundae, but she won’t let that get her down.
Besides, she has a plan. Evan Bailey—that brooding custom car builder who happens to hate her father—is going to help her. He just doesn’t know it yet.
The last thing Evan needs is the overly cheery Fiona crashing into his solitary life. But her offer is too compelling to ignore.
Fiona isn’t there to pick through the wreckage of Evan’s heart. If he has one, he won’t let her anywhere near it. But the tension between them is hot enough to combust. And when she starts to see the cracks in his stony façade, she realizes she’s getting more than she bargained for—a lot more—in that big surly man.
Author’s Note: A grouchy, broody loner meets an adorable badass (who talks to her houseplants). It’s the grumpy one is soft for the sunshine one with some engine-revving twists. Have a fan ready—you’re in for a Kindle-melting ride.

Meanwhile, Evan is the exact opposite. He is the very grumpy Bailey brother, the loner of the family who shuns the idea of being in a loving and committed relationship......or at least he used to! Evan is a little slow on the uptake when it comes to acknowledging and acting on his feelings, but once he decides he's in, he's all in.
Loved seeing all the Bailey brothers, they really are a fun bunch when they get together. I look forward to reading whichever brother is up next.
Evan is the grumpy loner who finally let’s Fiona into his heart.
And it was good to see her trying to calm the feud between Luke Haven and Evan.
Can’t wait to see how this turns out.

Word of warning though do not have anything else planned for the day when you start reading this as you will not want to put it down!
Evan and Fiona are 1000% perfect for each other! I mean she won over his dog straight away! Evan's grumpy/growly self just took a bit longer and holly hotness do the sparks fly when these two are together!
I loved seeing Gavin and Logan in particular wind Evan up so easily when it came to Fiona. Those two always make me laugh with what prank or in Gavin's case what daredevil trick he fancies trying next.
You will love Evan and Fiona! I can't wait for the next book and I am seriously hoping its Gavin!
Love Claire Kingsley's writing, the stories and the characters she creates are so full of life you can easily lose yourself whilst reading. The fun, the shenanigans, the pranks and the squirrels, I love every word of this series. Can't wait till the next one comes out.
Absolutely, definitely, a recommended read.
Oh. My. God!! They say the quiet ones are often the most passionate… well, that’s definitely true where Evan Bailey is concerned.
There’s not much we know about Evan Bailey except that unlike his crazy brothers, he’s quiet, grumpy and awkwardly unsociable. Following his brother Asher’s incarceration, his life fell apart. Dropping out of college, and ‘squirrelling’ himself away (you’ll understand that reference more if you’ve read this series), Evan is pretty much a recluse. With his trusty German Shepherd sidekick, Sasquatch he lives alone in a creepy cabin a couple of miles out of town, right next to his custom car and auto repair ‘Shop’.
The only people who venture out that way are his family and customers and that’s just the way he likes it. If he lets no one in to his heart, they can’t break it again.
His resolve is tested however, when the craziness that is Fiona Gallagher literally bounces into his life.
He’s had a run in with her double-crossing, cheating low-life father who had knowingly sold him a stolen car. In addition to discovering the truth about his shady dealings, Fiona also finds her father in bed with her best friend Simone. Disgusted with him, Fiona quits her job as his assistant, packs everything up, especially her beloved houseplants, Myra and Blanche and walks out. Loading up her car, she heads off for pastures new. But there’s one thing she needs to do first.
Mortified by her fathers hand in Evan’s misfortune, she sets out to make amends for the underhanded deal. Arriving at his Shop, Evan is reluctant at first, but if what she promises is true, it could win him the prestige and notoriety he’d been working towards.
Cue an unforeseen road trip to secure the deal on a once in a lifetime rare opportunity. On the journey it appears that the competition to seal the deal is trickier than anticipated when Evan’s oldest and bitterest rival, Luke Haven is the other party interested in his dream car. This could get messy!
When they arrive, Evan is worried that he’s too late but as the optimistic Fiona works her magic, hope flashes in Evans eyes. As Evan talks through his vision for an authentic rebuild, the owner offers the car to Evan immediately without question.
The return road trip is interesting. Fiona is hilariously sweet. She’s quirky to say the least. Evan is completely perplexed at this strangely adorable young woman he’s inadvertently spent the last couple of days driving across country with. As much as her craziness alarms him, he can’t help but be fascinated by her.
Of course, it’s not going to take long for Fiona’s ever cheerful and alluringly beautiful soul to permeate Evans fierce and brooding heart. Whilst staying with him to fix her own car, Evan makes every effort to tamp down his attraction to her, but eventually he starts to admit that he has feelings for her. Nevertheless, he’s scared. He’s had his heart broken before and it’s taken every ounce of determination to get himself where he is; but there’s a difference between being alone and being lonely.
Having Fiona in his life makes him realise that he no longer wants to be lonely. She makes everything better, even if she does talk to plants. Even his dog loves her.
It’s obvious Fiona loves Evan just as much, even when he’s Mr Grouchypants, she has a way of bringing him round through teasing his good nature out of him.
It takes a while, but eventually they both admit how they feel and a few steamy encounters later, they are practically inseparable. Evan has fallen for her, and fallen hard. Now he’s found her, he’s never letting her go. Unfortunately, that doesn’t stop the threat of someone taking her from him though and when his worst fears are realised, it’s a race against time to get the love of his life safely back in his arms.
I honestly never thought I’d like Evan as much as I have ended up liking him. His love for the crazy girl that brings him out of his hermit shell is so incredibly heartwarming. They are perfect for each other in so many ways whilst being total opposites. She brings out his sweet, caring and playful side… something that has been sadly missing since losing his parents. They both bring out the best in each other and their shared passion for classic cars and all things petrol-heady makes for a unique bond.
A great and uplifting story with so much pent up emotion and restraint that when it’s finally released, it’s like a loved up waterfall.
Absolutely loved it. Well done Claire Kingsley… yet another fabulous chapter in yet another amazing series.
