Fangirl Down

Tessa Bailey is on top of her game with latest release!

I loved this book!

A grumpy/sunshine golf romance featuring a strong, kind, smart, capable, confident FMC with Type 1 Diabetes and a down-on-his-luck grump of a professional golfer. They were magic together!

Josephine is pro-golfer Wells Whitaker's biggest fan, despite the shambles his career is in and his decision to quit the PGA Tour. She believes in him even though he's hungover more often than he's winning tournaments. When her family's golf shop business is ruined by flooding, and she hasn't kept up the insurance premiums for the business or her healthcare because of dire financial straits, Wells makes an offer she can't refuse. Become his caddy.

This was entertaining, spicy, and fun, with emotional depth and an enveloping sunny warmth. I adored Josephine. She was such a refreshing, vibrant, and compelling character, and the inspiring way Bailey wrote her will stick with me. Wells is brooding and gruff, tends to self-sabotage, and doesn't like anyone until he gets to know Josephine. She believes in him, and something about her makes him want to do better. He admires her and respects how she handles her own life in ways that make him super swoony. These two had serious chemistry!

The plot was engaging, the pacing was good, the banter was fun, and there was a fair amount of spice. This was Bailey on top of her game, and I binged it. But I mostly loved this story because of the MCs. This couple was endearing and entertaining to read. I cannot wait for the second one in this series!

Thank you to NetGalley and Avon Books for the free book.

My steep was Leo: Queen of Courage from Club Magic Hour

Hand-rolled Yunnan black tea pearls with lion's mane, orange, and vanilla. This unique, sunny tea reminded me of Josephine. The little pearls of tea unfurl as you steep them. This makes a great iced tea!


#1 New York Times bestselling author Tessa Bailey launches a super sexy sports romance series with a rom-com about a bad boy professional athlete who falls for his biggest fan...

Wells Whitaker was once golf’s hottest rising star, but lately, all he has to show for his “promising” career is a killer hangover, a collection of broken clubs, and one remaining supporter. No matter how bad he plays, the beautiful, sunny redhead is always on the sidelines. He curses, she cheers. He scowls, she smiles. But when Wells quits in a blaze of glory and his fangirl finally goes home, he knows he made the greatest mistake of his life.

Josephine Doyle believed in the gorgeous, grumpy golfer, even when he didn’t believe in himself. Yet after he throws in the towel, she begins to wonder if her faith was misplaced. Then a determined Wells shows up at her door with a wild proposal: be his new caddy, help him turn his game around, and split the prize money. And considering Josephine’s professional and personal life is in shambles, she could really use the cash…

As they travel together, spending days on the green and nights in neighboring hotel rooms, sparks fly. Before long, they’re inseparable, Wells starts winning again, and Josephine is surprised to find a sweet, thoughtful guy underneath his gruff, growly exterior. This hot man wants to brush her hair, feed her snacks, and take bubble baths together? Is this real life? But Wells is technically her boss and an athlete falling for his fangirl would be ridiculous… right?
