A new kind of love story about flipping houses, taking risks, and landing that special someone who’s move-in ready…Thoughts on I Flipping Love You: Good gravy, Rian and Pierce were cute. From their first snark-filled encounter in the cereal aisle to their sexy-fast romance on the beach (complete with dryer sex and sand fleas, man!) to their deepening relationship as things progressed, I liked them.
SHE’S GOT CURB APPEAL
Rian Sutter grew up with the finer things in life. Spending summers in The Hamptons was a normal occurrence for her until her parents lost everything years ago. Now Rian and her sister are getting their life, and finances, back on track through real estate. Not only do they buy and sell houses to the rich and famous, but they finally have the capital to flip their very own beachfront property. But when she inadvertently catches the attention of a sexy stranger who snaps up every house from under her, all bets are off…
HE’S A FIXER UPPER
Pierce Whitfield doesn’t normally demo kitchens, install dry wall, or tear apart a beautiful woman’s dreams. He’s just a down-on-his-luck lawyer who needed a break from the city and agreed to help his brother work on a few homes in the Hamptons. When he first meets Rian, the attraction is undeniable. But when they start competing for the same pieces of prime real estate, the early sparks turn into full-blown fireworks. Can these passionate rivals turn up the heat on their budding romance — without burning down the house?
I FLIPPING LOVE YOU, set in the Shacking Up world, follows two people, both working in real estate, who find themselves vying for the same properties in the Hamptons, leading to a sometimes-not-so-friendly competition.
I always have a soft spot for snark, sass, and sarcasm. Let's face it, Rian and Pierce excel at all three.
Pierce is also a hearty believer in cuddling. He cuddles. A lot.
While Pierce is a self-avowed cuddler, Rian is prickly. She often speaks without filtering and she's pretty darn suspicious. Also, she's a master at pushing people away when things start to get heavy. Which Pierce is NOT cool with. But then, he calls her on it and is good at making her face what's bothering her. Eventually. Things like that take time and perseverance and Pierce gives her both.
This is the first book I've rad in this series and I dug it. Fast-talking, filterless ladies make me smile. The men who slip under their prickly exteriors make me smile even more.
All in all, I had a good time with this one and that's what it's all about.
