Publisher Description

I’m not too proud to admit that finding Mr. Right involves swiping right. Right? Welcome to dating in avocado toastland.

Here I am, on my first blind date, ever, courtesy of a smartphone app and my two annoying best friends.

So what is Chris “Fletch” Fletcher doing, walking across the room, looking at his phone like he’s pattern matching a picture to find a real person he’s never met before?


Oh, no.

The guy I drop-kicked in seventh grade cannot be my blind date. The guy who earned me this infernal nickname.

That’s right.


It was bad enough that last month all my old kickboxing training came in handy when a disgruntled noncustodial dad invaded my preschool class and tried to take one of my kids without permission.

That ended with news coverage of the closed-circuit video that parents saw in real time as I beat him up and pinned his neck to the ground while waiting for police to respond. 

We won’t mention the part where I thrust my arm into the air in a power stance and, uh…


Hey. HEY! Don’t judge me. I protected those kids. And the kid most in danger was Fletch’s nephew.

The same Fletch who just now noticed me sitting here.

Being noticed is bad.

Being his dating app match is even worse.


Because no matter how hard I’ve tried to avoid him since high school, every time I see him I have the same reaction.

I wish I’d never kicked him.

I wish, instead, that I’d let him kiss me.

Which it looks like he’s trying to do.

Right now.

More Than Feisty

It’s Feisty and Fletch’s turn. When a horrifying event takes place at the preschool where Fiona works, it’s Feisty who saves the kids and the day and then Fletch who in turn comes to her aid. This is the catalyst for some deep changes for Fiona. Will she be able to reconcile her Feisty past with her present and will she be able to see Fletch for who he is today or keep seeing him as her teenage nemesis and the bestower of her hated nickname? It’s a tremendous inner journey that she makes and sometimes hysterically funny aided by her besties Mal and Perky. You don’t want to say goodbye to this bunch!

This book was EVERYTHING!! I have been in this weird reading funk for so long. This book really got me out of it! I could NOT wait until the next moment I could read, I even stayed up later two nights. I'm not sure I can say enough about it!

I LOVE Fiona! I don't think we got the full experience of who she was in the last few books, but we got to see a little more of her spiritual side in Perky. I was super curious where that would lead us. I had NO idea this book would start out exactly where we were left at the end of Perky, but boy am I glad we did! Seeing Fiona as "Feisty" in the beginning of this book WAS SO EPIC!!! I cannot explain how excited I was at Fiona going up against Mattie's dad!!! It was so amazing. Seeing Fiona be one with herself and use her energy the way she did was mesmerizing, I couldn't put the book down!

Now, of course, we cannot forget about Chris in this moment!!!! I LOVED how he instantly went to help Fiona and Mattie. His instinct with Mattie was so adorable and then the level of care he had for Fiona was equally adorable. This was such a pivotal moment for these two. Fiona HATED Chris so much before this, and this really made her look at him as someone else. There was so much that Chris didn't know about Fiona and so much that Fiona didn't know about Chris. AND there was a lot that Fiona needed to learn about herself.

That being said, holy guacamole, did these two have some INTENSE chemistry! I LOVED the sparks between these two every time we saw them. I also loved how intense their feelings were, even if she was ignoring hers. He as so sweet and caring to her. Add in friends who are trying to help defend you but also tell you to change, it made for an interesting time. And we can't have one of these books with SO much hysterics!! I died laughing throughout this entire book! Between the festival, the wedding meetings and the in betweens,I was constantly laughing. Mallory and Perky are the best friends, add in Will and some other characters and it just made for a party in book form!!!

I CANNOT wait to see what's next and I'm dying to find out more about what happened in the epilogue!!
