A new kind of 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 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 romancewithout burning down the house?

Rian and her twin sister live in the Hamptons. They are in real estate, but their dream is it to flip those run-down quality houses near the beach until they have enough saved to buy the one they really want: their grandmother's mansion - which their parents sold before leaving them behind - with lots of debt and legal problems.
But now things are looking up ... finally.

Enter Pierce.
Mega rich New York lawyer.
He's in a bit of a overworked-lawyer crisis. He needs to get away from the city to recover from a mistake he made at work. And so he ends up in the Hamptons helping his brother buying and flipping houses.

And then Rian and Pierce meet. And it's not a good first meeting.
He accuses her of hitting his car and she accuses him of sexual harassment.
Both not really true - because it was of course her sister who rammed his car last week - and fled the scene!
But now Pierce is mega interested in Rian ... but she's a bit stubborn. She's not looking for anything serious and especially not with a sexy rich guy. Bad experiences with those!!

But Pierce is NOT giving up and Rian won't be able to resist forever ... and then there's also the tiny little problem, that they're both interested in all of the same houses!!!!!



Another mega-adorable and funny and sparky and sexy romance in this amazing series!
I adored Rian and Pierce from the moment I started reading.
They so obviously belong together, but there was this stupid first impression.
But they're working on it.
And it's so adorable and full of sparks and flirting and sexiness and beach and sand and houses ... I just loved reading it!
I love the whole summery, beachy, Hamptons atmosphere.

We have so many funny and sexy and adorable moments!

But also some very serious and moving and frustrating moments. Both Rian and Pierce have parental and/or job troubles, which are keeping both from enjoying life the way it's supposed to be enjoyed.
But ... we'll get to that happily ever after! And we love every page of their journey!!!

I just loved this book! There's really nothing more I could say!

I FLIPPING LOVE YOU was the most adorable Romantic Dramedy!!!! Funny, sweet, sexy! I just LOVED it! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Pierce - this one is MINE!!!!

ARC received for an honest review

Waaaah! This book is so freaking good!

I am not usually one for covers, but the guy on this one has been taunting me on my kindle for ages and I just adore him. I licked him, he's mine! He look kind of Hemsworth-y.
I Flipping Love You is the story of Pierce, who is Amelie from Hooking Up's brother.  
Pierce and Rian's story sweet and sexy and all kinds of adorable - and not OTT drama for drama's sake.  I am not a fan of drama llamas!
The sparks between our lovelies makes the air around them combustible, and you just know that if they ever get together it is going to be hot hot hot!
I love the Hamptons setting - though all I really know about the area is that it is full of rich people lol!  Makes me want to go to the beach (though I live hours from the coast, sand gets where sand shouldn't get and I don't go in the water because Jaws can eat me!).  It also made me want to reno my house, even though it doesn't need it and I don't have the $$ to do it!
I Flipping Love You is full of sweet, sexy, funny moments, however it has plenty of heartbreaking and frustrating and vulnerable moments too.
I couldn't put this one down once I started.
I can't wait for whatever Ms Hunter brings us next.
