Mr. Fixer Upper Book Review

Hello everyone and welcome back to the blog! Today, I am back with another book review. Lucy Score is an author I always see on social media. I’ve read one other book of hers so far and enjoyed it, but now that I’ve read Mr. Fixer Upper, she is definitely on my radar for good. So, let’s get into it.

It has been a while since I’ve read a contemporary romance novel. For the last couple of months, I was on a huge thriller kick. I’ve read Things We Never Got Over but her last year. It was a buddy read with my friend, Mikala, and we both loved it.

Mr. Fixer Upper is about the equivalent of a HGTV show field producer and the star of the show falling for each other. Gannon King and his sister Cat are the stars of their on show on the Welcome Home Network. Paige is one of the field producers who is basically in charge of the schedule and all the small details happening while filming the episodes. Gannon could care less about being on TV, and only wanted to help his family’s business. He would rather have his own shop and build beautiful custom furniture pieces.

Paige St. James despises the network and their tactless efforts to raise their ratings. She eventually wants to write and direct her own documentary series about gender discrimination. However, the longer she and Gannon work together the more they fall for each other, and keeping track of her work goals becomes more complicated than Paige thought. But how can she deny the physical attraction she feels towards Gannon?

As soon as I picked this book up, I couldn’t put it down. I loved the chemistry between Gannon and Paige. Gannon was definitely swoon worthy and protective over Paige which I loved reading. Paige was the kind of character that stuck up not only for herself but for her crew as well. I wasn’t expecting to see the trope of “he falls first” and it’s been a while since I’ve read something of that nature. This did also have the trope of “miscommunication” which I don’t necessarily like, but I still thought it was well done and well written.

Lucy Score tends to write books that tend to all fall in the same universe, for example, Things We Never Got Over is part of the Knockemout series. Mr. Fixer Upper is part of the Welcome Home series, and apparently Cat (Gannon’s sister) has her own book called, The Christmas Fix. I almost picked this up first not knowing it goes hand in hand with Mr. Fixer Upper. I definitely want to check the next one out in this series.

Overall, I would highly recommend checking this book out, it was a very light read. The perfect book to pull you from a slump especially if you like romances. The book is about 380ish pages, but the chapters are short, and you honestly can fly through the book with no problem.

I would give this 4/5 stars!

Alright folks, that is all I have for this week! Come back next Wednesday for another blog post. As always thank you for reading :)
