REVIEW: I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting
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?
Why have I not read more of Helena Hunting sooner?! I’m kicking myself!
"You don’t get to pull the gnomery and still get the perks of my lady garden.”
When I read the blurb of I Flipping Love You I was instantly intrigued by this story! I am OBSESSED with house flipping and every Real Estate show I can get my hands on! I don’t know what it is but I CAN’T STOP WATCHING! They’re full of drama and keep me enthralled from the get go!
I Flipping Love You was no different. From the very first chapter I was hooked on Rian and Pierce. They had one heck of an unconventional first meeting and from then on every other meeting is a matter of happenstance.
Set in the picturesque Hamptons, Rian, that’s Ryan with an I, is a successful Real Estate agent with secrets. Being sensible is not one of them! Rian was the type of female character I love, she was strong and smart and didn’t let anyone walk all over her. But she’s also lacking in confidence and riddled with guilt about her past secrets. She was relatable and funny and I might have loved her more then her counterpart Pierce Whitfield.
I should’ve known better than to trust someone this hot, with that evil Prince Charming smile.
Pierce is a down on his luck lawyer who’s spending his summer hiding out on the beaches of the Hamptons fixing up and flipping houses. With a past he’d rather not remember and a future he doesn’t want he’s a little mad at the world and even madder at himself. Pierce likes to think he’s an a$$hole Alpha, but he’s really not. He’s sweet and funny and apparently fantastic in bed if you ask him. He’s also damn fine and not afraid to tell you so.
“You kind of break all the molds. You have to be able to see why I was reluctant to go out with you.”
“Because I fit some kind of stereotype?”
“Because you look like you’re good at breaking hearts and bed frames.”
“I promise the latter is far more likely than the former.” I wink on reflex.
I Flipping Love You was full of inescapable fate. There was something happening around every corner. There were so many hilarious antics and one liners and crazy high jinx that I loved reading. I Flipping Love You was a feel good romantic comedy that left your heart feeling full and gave you all the heart eyes! I couldn’t stop smiling at the end and instantly went back and read my favourite parts!
Helena Hunting has a writing style that I love. Steamy sex scenes, hilarious high jinx and sweet as candy moments! Rian and Pierce’s story is the one you want to cuddle up with on a rainy Sunday afternoon when you need some laughs, some romance, a little bit of intrigue and some joy. If you haven’t already, pick up this book now! You’ll finish that rainy Sunday hugging your kindle begging for more Rian and Pierce moments!
“You’re a smart woman, Rian.”
“All the time.” I kiss her neck.
“I’m a little stupid over you,” she whispers.
