SHE’S GOT CURB APPEAL. HE’S A FIXER UPPER…
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 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 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?
“Fun, sexy, and full of heart…Helena Hunting has done it again!”―USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow (on Shacking Up)

Helena Hunting is one of the queens of rom-coms! She has a way of crafting characters and stories that draw you in from the first word and keep you engaged until the final word. Her books make you laugh out loud, they give you all the feels and you just don’t want to put them down and I Flipping Love You is no exception!
Rian Sutter is a strong woman. She’s been through a lot in her young life and she and her sister Marley have largely relied on one another over the past decade. She’s beautiful, she’s brilliant, she’s fierce and she and Marley are trying to get their Hamptons real estate business off the ground. More than anything, Rian wants to feel stable and settled.
While spending the summer in the Hamptons, Pierce Whitfield is doing what he wants for once in his life. He’s away from the City and his lawyer job and he’s mowing the lawn, spending time with his brother and his dog and refurbishing houses that the two of them are purchasing as rental properties. The handsome is thinking that his summer will be uncomplicated, but that’s likely wishful thinking!
When Rian and Pierce “run into” one another, the chemistry is immediate and off the charts! While they may not see eye to eye, they continue to find themselves in the same places and in one another’s orbit. Will these two figure out a way to embrace the undeniable sparks between them or will the real estate they are competing over drive a wedge between them?
I thoroughly enjoyed this book from the second I started reading. I laughed within the first minute and kept right on going as I made my way through the book. I found myself rooting for Rian and Pierce and I hurt when they hurt, laughed when they laughed and I just wanted the best for the both of them. There was just something about this book that I connected with so strongly. It is a fantastic addition to the “Shacking Up” series and even if you haven’t read the first two, you can read this one as a standalone without any issues. And you should – it’s that good!
I don’t know how I missed it, but I had no idea that this book was set in the Shacking Up world. Imagine my surprise to learn that Pierce is Amalie’s brother and not only did we get to see Amalie (whom I love), but we also got a tiny Lex appearance (swoon). Anyway, back to I Flipping Love You…what an awesome book. It was funny, sexy, sweet and exactly what I’ve come to expect from Helena Hunting. I am absolutely in love with her writing and her characters.
I love that I can be laughing out loud one minute and then swooning the next. I love that the characters are relatable (even when they’ve got money). Rian is the kind of girl you want as your best friend, although she also reminds you so much of yourself it’s sometimes scary. Pierce is the kind of guy you make your book boyfriend. These two are perfect for each other and their story is one you can’t miss.
Helena Hunting has quickly become a must buy, must read, must stalk author. I highly recommend her books to anyone who will listen to me. Do yourself a favor and read this. Although it is the third book in a series, it can be read as a standalone.
Pierce & Rian are rom-com ecstasy!
Perfectly executed surprises!
Multi-faceted characters that are EVERYTHING!
Sizzling angsty build up & explosive crescendo! (may never look at my dryer the same)
Incredible story – I didn’t want to put it down!
Helena Hunting always manages to deliver unique storylines with the most perfectly complex characters that elevate this super funny & sexy book to a top pick. Her always impeccable writing delivers the special brand of humor I have come to love plus the element of the unexpected. So creative with everything especially the personality traits of these characters. Incredibly entertaining from start to finish. Just enough uncertainty to keep me guessing. Loved every word!
A simple case of mistaken identity sparks an attraction that catches these characters by surprise. They keep crossing paths – something embarrassing usually happening to Rian – yet Pierce keeps getting rejected. Thank goodness he doesn’t give up. His dialogue is some of my favorite lines in the book. Rian is oblivious to the power of her beauty and brains. Pierce can’t get enough of her feisty attitude. They’re both so endearing. I love them.
I Flipping Love You is one of my favorite reads and I can’t recommend it enough!
