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?


"It would seem that Tessa Bailey cannot write a dud, lol! Dear Lord are a 5 star magnet!" - Kelli C, Goodreads

"Unfixable was a fun, sexy, and light-hearted romance that kept a smile on my face from start to finish!!" - Aestas Book Blog

"Unfixable is a steamy, adorable love story about two people who could not have been further from looking for true love...Flirty, steamy, heartfelt and set in the heart of Ireland, I could not have been more willing to lose myself in the romance of this book." --Lisa, Goodreads

"If you enjoy steamy NA with fantastic characters and a wonderful story (and scorching hot sex scenes), this book is a must read. If you've read and loved Tessa's other books, then you will definitely love this one. And if you haven't yet discovered the brilliance that is this author, I'm not sure what you're doing still reading me review. GO READ THEM!" --Lana, Goodreads

"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' is ...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

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 ending. ...more

There are some authors which just know their groove... they have a way of taking the reader by the hand and heart; leading them on path through all the twists and turns of interpersonal relationships, making sure they come out the other end....

“Love comes in many forms. It’s not always sweet. Or comfortable. Sometimes it’s selfish and consuming. Volatile.”

I loved this so much. I enjoyed Willa and Shane even more than Ginger and Derek. Probably, because I am a sucker for hate to love. They weren't enemies per se but the antagonism was ther ...more

Reread 7/6/18.

I read Ginger and Derek's story a while ago, and didn't realize that her sister, Willa, had her own story. I was SO missing out. This was such a lovely book.
