Review ~ Unfixable by Tessa Bailey

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?
Willa just got out of a 2 year relationship and needed some time away. What better way than to go to another country. She wins a photography contest and gets to spend a month in Dublin taking photos and documenting her trip.  Right from the beginning she meets Shane when he meets her at the airport to pick her up and bring her to the inn she will be staying at. Turns out his family owns the inn. There is a lot of tension between Willa and Shane and you know what they say, there is a fine line between love and hate.

Willa spends a lot of time resisting her feelings of lust towards Shane and I have no idea why. Shane is a little brooding, sexy, Irish, and a professional race car driver. She is completely attracted to him from the minute she lays eyes on him at the airport but doesn't want to get attached to someone when she will just be leaving in a month. Plus she seems to think that she is broken and ruins people.

This was the first novel of Tessa Bailey's that I have read and I was definitely not disappointed.  Apparently this was a spinoff from Protecting What's His, which features her older sister Ginger and her husband Derek. With that being said this story can definitely be read as a standalone, although I definitely want to go back and read that one and find out more of their story.

The only reason I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 is because the ending seemed very rushed. I also felt that the epilogue didn't wrap up the book completely. It was an okay ending but it also left me wanting more. Maybe Faith will get her own book and we can peak back into Willa and Shane's lives?
