Présentation de l'éditeur

A new adult novel from Entangled's Embrace imprint...

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?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Tessa Bailey knocks it out of the park with her first New Adult novel, Unfixable 15 avril 2014
Par Kellie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Willa Peet is lost, trying to find the whip-smart firecracker she used to be. Reeling from the breakup of the relationship with her first love, and at not even twenty, she firmly believes she's broken, unfixable.

Until she wins a photography competition and finds herself in Dublin, and crosses paths with Shane Claymore, the owner of the guesthouse where she'll spend her month in Ireland. They strike sparks off each other right away, but he's got no time for anything but focusing on selling off the family business, and returning to his car racing career.

Unfixable is Tessa Bailey's latest release, a spinoff from her compelling Line of Duty series, and her first New Adult novel. (While Unfixable spins off from Bailey's Protecting What's His, there is sufficient background for this novel to stand alone.)

Willa's a superb character. Despite thinking she's broken she still has plenty of fire to her. The way she plays Shane at their first meeting is hilarious. Despite the way she thinks about herself, she's more than capable of deep love.

Shane is a standout. He's a vintage dirty-talking, charismatic, sexy hero, for which Tessa Bailey is becoming quite well known, but what a complex character. Tortured by his relationship with his father, bearing the guilt of his death, there's nothing he wants more than to escape from the family legacy that weighs him down, and head back to the career he loves. Orla the barmaid says it best, in Unfixable: "Irish men are a complicated sort...don't judge by what you see on the surface, or they'll knock you on your arse when you're not looking".

Unfixable is a perfect blend of hot sexy and sweet love. We hurt for Willa and Shane as they hurt themselves and each other, cheer them on as they challenge each other and try to work out a way past their differences and the 'use-by' date that circumstances have placed on their relationship. But it's the growing past the beliefs you hold about yourself that keep you from moving forward, that's a real coming of age. Such good subject matter for this New Adult story, Bailey's first effort in the genre, which she handles skilfully.

The setting is absolutely stunning and evocative, right down to the rendering of the Irish burr - it's like being there, walking along Baggot street hearing those voices yourself. The supporting characters are beautifully drawn, including Shane's family members. They're funny, caring, but never sink into cliché. They all have their own wants and desires, their own hidden pain.

I highly recommend this book for readers who like their contemporary romance sexy, but like the emotional side too.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hot and beautiful love story! 14 avril 2014
Par Marta Baez Petrocelli - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
As a fan of Tessa Bailey, I thought if knew what to expect when I picked up Unfixable. Hot guy, beautiful girl, heartwarming love story that I would re-read many times. I got so much more than that.

Willa is on a journey to rediscover herself, find out where she belongs, and figure out how and why she could end a long term relationship with the first love of her life. She's a mess and thinks herself unfixable - not fit to be in a romantic relationship or deal normally with others because of the way she was raised and how she has turned out.

Shane (hot and beautiful man) is a race car driver with a lot of obligations to his widowed mother and younger sister. He's trying to do what's right by them so he can take off and race cars again. His late father did a number on his head and he constantly feels unfixable himself.

Willa and Shane meet when she wins a contest that takes her to his pub/inn in Ireland. There are fireworks around them from the beginning but that's not what got me. These two people carry such sorrow and shame inside them because of what was done to them as children. Their journey from that place of brokenness to a place where they feel free to love and give love in return is so beautiful. You feel the emotion come through the pages, the self doubt, the sadness. Whenever Willa and Shane come together, it is undeniably hot but, at the same time, you feel how it cleanses them of their past and what they think if themselves and what this new love does to their souls.

I absolutely loved this book and am only sorry it ended. Outstanding job, Tessa!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wild Willa finally gets her story!! 14 avril 2014
Par Amanda Clark - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
When I decided to read Unfixable I had no idea it was about a character I had met before. I read the synopsis and thought the character name sounded familiar but it didn't dawn on me until I was halfway through chapter one. That's when I realized I had met Willa Peet in another book by this author called His To Protect. She and her sister Ginger were two of my favorite characters in that book so I was happily surprised that the lovable foul mouthed teen got her own story!

Willa had a tough life. Her journey to self discovery began when she started dating the adorably affable, Evan. he her ticket to normal, Captain of the basketball team and popular, He always tried to include her in everything he did. He introduced her to his friends, invited her to parties and even took her to prom. I had such high hopes that Evan and Willa would work out when I read His To Protect. They were so adorable together and Willa needed something stable and beautiful after the life she had endured with her addict mother. But her inner turmoil won't let her have Evan. She feels likes she broken. Unable to love someone like they should be loved or give them what they need. She tried to be what Evan needed but in the end it wasn't enough. To get over her breakup with him she is sent to Dublin after winning a photo contest to spend a month taking pictures of her trip for a magazine.

Once there, Dublin changes Willa. From the inside out a slow transformation takes place in her that opens up something she didn't realize she possessed. The Claymore inn she is staying at is how she meets Shane whose family runs the place. He picks her up from the airport and the friction between them, which isn't always pleasant, is something that interests Willa to a certain extent even though she's closed herself off. She doesn't want to make friends and does her best to avoid getting involved but the locals make it hard for her to keep herself away as she makes new friendships and connects with Shane on a deeper level.

Out of all Bailey's heroines I have to say Willa is my favorite. Even though she was a tween when I first met her she's grown into a beautiful young woman and her path to finding out who she really is was so beautiful and exactly what I wanted for her. She's a tough little spitfire but it's mostly just her mouth. There's something deeper she keeps hidden from everyone because she doesn't know how to express herself. Shane really opens her up and it's not just the whole "He's everything she never knew she needed" aspect. He is able to open her up because he's exactly like her. He keeps his emotions and feelings locked away and doesn't know how to be close to anyone except his family. I didn't want to like Shane at first. My allegiance was to Evan because he was so sweet and good to Willa. Ultimately though, Shane was the right fit for Willa. He has some daddy issues that keep him from connecting on an emotional level as well. His father wanted him to follow in his footsteps and run the inn but Shane wanted to race and when he followed his heart he was kicked out of his home for his efforts. The loss of his father after that brings him back to run things along with his sister Faith after his mother loses some of her marbles and needs constant supervision. Shane really was a great guy. He loved his family, he protected his sister and he was willing to stick around to show Willa what she needed. He wouldn't let her push him away no matter what she did.

The soul searching she does while in Ireland and the discoveries she makes about herself were rewarding not to mention the friendships she makes adding to her vivid canvas. Shane's sister Faith grows on her the more time she spends with her and upon an outing by herself, Willa meets two goofball Irish lads who moonlight as musical pickpockets. Bailey delivers something special in Unfixable and I can't put my finger on what it was exactly. everything just worked together to make this a wonderful story.

To be a New Adult venture in Bailey's repertoire Unfixable brought almost as much heat as her adult novels which by the way never leave me unfulfilled in any capacity. There is something special about Bailey;'s writing style that makes me connect with the characters and the way she pens her chemistry just works for me. Every single time. I have yet to read anything of hers that hasn't made me feel on all levels. I might love other characters more than some but I always enjoy them nonetheless. She writes characters that are lovable and unforgettable. No two characters ever feel like the same recycled person from other stories. Her women are fierce and vulnerable at times and her men are strong, protective and sexy. Another strong attribute to her writing is how she brings to life the surroundings of her characters. Everything Willa saw, touched or explored had an emotional connection that I felt right along with her. It's enough to make me feel as if I'm standing right next to the character seeing what they see. It's not super detailed down to the very last aspect but the connection is made through the eyes of the heart.

From the emotional upset of Willa's supposed first love and breakup to the finding of something deeper than she has ever known, Unfixable took me on a ride I wouldn't have wanted to miss. It almost felt like watching a child grow up because I had been through so much with Willa already. Don't worry if you haven't read His To Protect yet though, Unfixable can absolutely be read as a stand alone because it honestly does just that. Stands Alone. Willa is her own person and I really felt that throughout her story. I'm hoping now though that the next book will be something involving Shane's sister Faith. She was another spitfire woman and her Irish heritage only makes her that much more interesting. For those who don't want to venture fully into the world of adult novels but want some of the heat and intensity then Unfixable is the right book for you.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Unfixable 15 avril 2014
Par Sarah (Feeling Fictional) - Publié sur Amazon.com

Unfixable is Tessa Bailey's first new adult novel but I'm not sure if it is the start of a new series. If you have read her adult contemporary Line of Duty series then you'll already be familiar with our heroine Willa though. Willa is the younger sister of Ginger and she was a side character in the novel Protecting What's His and the novella Protecting What's Theirs. I loved Willa's character before so I was really excited to find out that she was getting a book of her own and I couldn't wait to read Unfixable.

Willa has just split up with her first boyfriend and she just wants to get away from it all. She spent the last 2 years trying to change into something she wasn't to keep her ex happy and she doesn't really know who she is any more. The timing couldn't have been better for winning a trip to Ireland in photography contest and she's looking forward to spending some time on her own and rediscovering herself. The last thing she is looking for is a fling but meeting Shane may test her resolve more than she expects. Shane is a Formula One race driver who has been forced to take a break from his dream job to help at his family's Inn after the death of his father. His plan is to sell the Inn as quickly as possible and get back to his life on the race track so his attraction to Willa takes him completely by surprise and isn't exactly something he's thrilled about. As they embark on a reluctant fling will their hearts get in the way of their dreams or will they discover something new to be passionate about?

Considering how much I already loved Willa from her previous appearances I had high hopes for this book but while I liked it I found I didn't enjoy it as much as I expected to. There are certainly some sweet moments between Willa and Shane but I actually found I enjoyed her interactions with his mother and sister more. Willa came across as quite self involved and hard edged in the beginning of the book, she's much more prickly than I thought she would be and the way she was so determined to keep everyone at arms length made me find it difficult to believe Shane would be so interested in her. It took me a long time to warm up to her character and I think that because we don't get to see things from Shane's point of view I just struggled to feel his connection to her. I really wanted to get inside his head and know what he was thinking.

The beginning of the story was quite slow and whenever I had to put my kindle down I didn't feel particularly inspired to pick it back up again. The story was nice enough when I was reading but I didn't have that compelling, addicted feeling towards it that makes a book unforgettable. The pace picks up nicely towards the end though and I found myself really enjoying the last few chapters. I also loved getting a glimpse into how Ginger and Derek are getting on a few months down the line from the end of their book, there are some really sweet scenes with them and Willa that made me smile.

Although Unfixable wasn't my favourite of Tessa Bailey's books it was still a likeable read and worth investing a couple of hours into reading, especially if you've read the previous books with Willa and want to see how things turn out for her. I'm a huge fan of this author's other series so I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for anything new she writes in the future.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Everything that's wrong with the "New Adult" sub-genre in one convenient place! 12 mai 2014
Par SmuttySophie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I despise New Adult. Seriously. Why does it need to be a thing? It's angsty, whiny, mentally-stunted teenagers who have sex. Call it YA with sex cause that's all it is. Unfixable is no exception.

Why did I read this if I hate NA so much, you ask? Well, I'll tell you. I like Tessa Bailey's other books. I loved "Protecting What's His" and I loved Willa's character in that book. So when I heard she had her own book (by the way, hats off to Entangled for packaging this series across two lines - Brazen and Embrace, too bad it's the last Embrace I will ever spend my hard earned pennies on!) I wanted to read it.

Unfortunately, Willa lost her spark between Protecting What's His and Unfixable. She was snarky and funny in PWH. In Unfixable she is a selfish, annoying, whining mental case who mopes around Ireland with a camera. I assume the author wrote off her trip to Ireland as a business expense to write this book and I hope to god the IRS audits her as punishment for inflicting this angst-ridden mess on the general public.

This book is all first person Willa. I used to hate first person POV, but I've grown to like it in some cases. It kind of works here, except that Willa is SO annoying. All of the conflict revolves around Willa. She's a bit of a raging self-involved nutjob honestly. And by her age she should really be at the point where she realizes the entire does not revolve around her whiny butt.

The worst is that the story does not ring true for me. **SPOILER** Ginger has her baby early. Willa not only decides to stay in Ireland she goes globe-trotting to follow her now boyfriend around the race car circuit instead of going home to meet her niece!? WTF???? Ginger and Willa grew up in a terrible family situation with only each other to rely on. Ginger gave up a lot to take care of her younger sister. Willa repays her by not giving a crap that her sister just had a baby.

No matter how good Shane's giving it to her, I found it impossible to believe Willa wouldn't at least go home to see her sister and niece for a few days. That sucked and it's when I got seriously annoyed that I wasted my time reading this mess.
