Review: I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting

"I drink coffee and hum to the music blasting through my ear buds as I prepare the cookie dough. Cookies and open houses are always a winner. 
I add cinnamon, because it’s proven to make people feel more at home."

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…


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?

The Shacking Up series by Helena Hunting is one that's been on my radar (and TBR list) for quite a while. Having read, devoured, and loved Clipped Wings, Inked Armour, and Fractures in Ink, I was immediately set to devour the Shacking Up series the moment I could. Unfortunately, with a lack of time and the array of chaos that comes along with life, I never quite managed to get to reading Shacking Up and Hooking up, the first two titles in the Shacking Up series. However, when I received a galley of I Flipping Love You, the latest installment of the series, I was eager to devour it immediately, regardless of not having read the previous two titles.

"First kisses are powerful. This imperfect situation has all the right components. Romantic with a setting sun backdrop and a beach—not ideal that I’m mostly soaking wet, but definitely memorable."

I always love a good guilty-pleasure read that's full of romance, passion, and irresistible encounters. I Flipping Love you by Helena Hunting was just that - a perfect guilty-pleasure read! Oh boy! I could easily describe I Flipping Love You as a must binge-read kind of title, one for shameless readers, like myself, who can't resist a hot and sexy read that'll make you wish for 10 more chapters. Rian and Pierce were a duo to be reckoned with. Both were extremely witty, competitive, and fierce, matching each other perfectly, especially in dialogue. Their growth together, potent understanding of one another, and feelings for eachother truly won me over. I don't think I could possibly resist another re-read of I Flipping Love You.

Romance readers, I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting is an absolute must! Add it to your TBR list, add it to your shopping cart, and read this precious title ASAP! It was the perfect combination of sexy, romance, and comedy. I positively can't wait to bump up Shacking Up and Hooking up on my reading list!
