A 2015 Colorado Romance Writers Award of Excellence finalist in the New Adult category
He’s the last thing she wants…but the only thing she needs.
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?

FIVE FIX ME STARS.
"He's the last thing she wants, but the only thing she needs."
It appears that Tessa Bailey can do no wrong in my eyes and with this lovely spin off from her 'Protecting series' hitting the right spot in the New Adult genre she just raised her game all over again. 'Unfixable' i... ...more
I have been on a Tessa Bailey audiobook kick the last few weeks. This is my third book of hers and by far my favorite. If you’ve read Protecting What’s His you remember Ginger’s younger sister Willa. Willa doesn’t let people get close. She is a little brash, a little standoffish, but s... ...more
5 I'd let Shane rev my engine Stars
I feel like a battle is being waged inside me, between my attraction to Shane and the scarier, unwanted feelings creeping in. It's no mystery that I will lose the physical battle, but I'm trying to win the overall war."
My casting for Shane ^^
Unfixable was a fun, sexy, and light-hearted romance that kept a smile on my face from start to finish!!
Honestly, it felt exactly like “reading” a romantic comedy movie — it had great banter, a hot hero, a snarky heroine, a little bit of drama thrown in and a happy endin... ...more
4.5 Willa, Shane, Dublin, Tessa Bailey Stars * * * * 1/2

I forgot what it meant to be comfortably broken. I thought I was Unfixable before. Now I'm plane-crash wreckage

- Didn't care for Willa at the beginning but she grew on me.
- This book is definitely less explicit than her previous titles but still hot.
- And yes, Derek and Ginger makes an appearance in... ...more
"This moment, it can be the be the worst of your life, or the best. Just make it your best. Let it be your best. Okay?"
1st - it is a Tessa Bailey book and she can get me hooked in her story every damn time.

frankly I'm mad as hell about it."
If you've read Tessa Bailey's book, Protecting What's His, then you've already met Willa and learned all about her background. You do not have to read that book to read this one. That was her sister's story and has no bearings on this book. But if you want to you can read the them together... ...more
Winning a trip to Ireland couldn’t have come at a more perfect time for nineteen year-old Willa.

Two people who see the worst in themselves and believe they are “unfixable” – can love be the fix?
This is my first book by Tessa Bailey. Had I known beforehand that the lead female character, Willa Peet was first introduced as a secondary character in “Protecting What’s His,” I would have done th... ...more
I get kind of excited when Tessa Bailey releases a new book! Shane is a trademark TB hero, possessive, bossy, protective. Did I mention he's a hot Irish race car driver?
Willa is Ginger's sister from Protecting What's His #1, but this can be a standalone. I enjoyed the Dublin setting,... ...more
I really enjoyed this. The chemistry is fantastic from the first moment they meet - they are sparky and witty and I was completely engrossed.
What follows then is a delicious build of tension that is perfectly paced to keep you avidly reading.
The setting in a Dublin pub worked well too - I feel as... ...more
I was lucky enough to read this book early and even though I first read it months ago, it has really stuck with me. (One certain sexy scene in particular...*fans self*) I've read and loved all of Tessa's books, but Unfixable is my favorite. Willa is the same wonderfully funny and intriguing chara... ...more
Tessa Bailey nailed it!
As I have read her Line of Duty series(which I loved!), I was very excited for Willa's story and since it was NewAdult I was looking forward to it, also I had questions like if the author will make it erotic and little Adult-ish? or will it be perfect NA? And guess what, It... ...more
Amazing, Amazing, Amazing. I loved it so much, this is exactly what I love seeing in NA books. I really hope Tessa Bailey writes NA books because this was amazing, it was different from what I have read in the other NA books. ...more
