From New York Times bestselling author Helena Hunting comes I Flipping Love You, a love story about flipping houses, taking risks, and landing that special someone who’s move-in ready.

Rian Sutter doesn’t usually get hit on in the grocery store, but when she notices a sexy man in a suit checking her out, she thinks maybe it’s her lucky day. Either that or the suit has a thing for sweaty, yoga-pant wearing women with excellent price matching skills.

Turns out it’s neither.

Pierce Whitfield can’t believe his luck when he’s able to track down the woman who scratched up the paint job on his car at the scene of the crime. But when he confronts the hit and run hottie, he discovers there’s not just one, but two of them, and he’s been throwing accusations at the wrong twin.

As repair costs are negotiated, and the chemistry between them flares, Rian and Pierce find out they have more than mutual attraction in common. They’re both vying for the same pieces of prime real estate in The Hamptons and neither one plans to give up without a fight.

Can these passionate rivals turn up the heat on their budding romance—without burning down the house?

My Review

The latest book in Helena Hunting’s Shacking Up series, I Flipping Love You, is a light hearted, fun, and sexy read; one that will make readers want to get into the ‘flipping’ business because the amount of sexual tension and passionate rivalry that stems from a little competition for prime real estate is definitely something most of us wouldn’t mind experiencing.

But it’s not all fun and games for Rian Sutter and Pierce Whitfield because this real estate flipping rivalry may constantly place them in each other’s paths, but Pierce is going to need to do more than be his charismatic and a bit jerkish self because not only is Rian stubborn to a fault, but her past has drastically shaped her present, making her extremely cautious in a way that the walls she fixes have nothing on the ones she’s built around herself as protection.

I love romance stories that involve siblings; it’s always so interesting to see how different the heroines and heroes can be from their respective sisters or brothers, and in the case of Rian and Pierce’s siblings, she couldn’t be any more different than her twin sister and Pierce doesn’t seem anything like his brother either. But while Rian and Pierce seem polar opposite of their sibling, the one that fascinates me the most is Rian and her twin. They both endured the same hopeless situation but yet, Rian is the defensive and touchy one while her sister seems to be as easy going and playful as they come, which is also why I now desperately need a story about Rian’s twin sister and Pierce’s brother!

The title’s play on words speaks to Rian and her sister’s profession as well as Pierce’s brother’s career and what Pierce finds himself helping with when he is forced to take a vacation and heads to the Hamptons. But what I also love about the title is how it illustrates Rian and Pierce’s relationship because as much as Rian’s attracted to Pierce, she would be more apt to say ‘I Flipping Hate You’ or ‘I Flipping Can’t Stand You’ every time Pierce’s steals a property out from under her. It actually takes quite a while before Rian would even say out loud ‘I Flipping Like You,’ which only adds to the push and pull between these two characters and Pierce’s need to unruffled Rian’s feathers with his charm and smooth moves.

I adore Helena Hunting’s playful and comedic side, and the characters she creates that showcase her wit and her ability to diversify her writing style to fit her vision of the story line. Hunting has created some of my most favorite heroes and heroines, and while Rian isn’t at the top of my list because it did take a bit for me to warm up to her, the whole cast of characters in I Flipping Love You make it a fantastic and unique romantic comedy.
