      1. Benchilo Yanthan

        The quality of the book is great. Highly recommend best purchase ever, (seller)-Cocoblu Retail

      2. Narayani

        Being an all-time romance fan, reading this book was like having a creamy dessert after a tiring day.This beautiful book, with enough forced proximity and a convenient marriage, is my first book by this author, and I’m totally into it.I love the character development; at the beginning, Natalie was a rich brat, but her character development was worth reading.The book’s design is beautiful, especially the illustrations at the beginning of each chapter.I love how stubborn and romantic August is.I could have called August my new book boyfriend, but the s*x parts… I couldn’t find myself fitting into them. At times, they were too corny, but that didn’t bother my reading.This book is a great combination of romance, spice, fun, tears, and family drama. If you are a fan of Enemies to Lovers, pick this book up ASAP.Now I’m excited to read the author’s first book, “Secretly Yours.”Overall, a great read. Highly recommended for all romance lovers.

        I always like a good fake marriage trope and this one is done really well. The sparks between the MCs are a great way to offset their vulnerabilities. Tessa Bailey really does a great job writing strong men who are also insecure in their own ways and August is no different! The story is fast paced and I enjoyed understanding each character in greater depth including Natalie’s mom who makes quite an impression. Overall a great read and the perfect follow up to Secretly Yours!!

        Buckle up because “Unfortunately Yours” by Tessa Bailey is like a rollercoaster of sass, steam, and surprise. Natalie Vos is like the poster child for bad luck – lost her job and her fiancé. Ouch. So, she’s back home but, she’s got plans to get back on track, and that trust fund of hers is the only ticket. Here, enter the August Cates, the hunky vineyard owner who’s got his own set of issues but, Natalie’s got an idea – a fake marriage.Natalie and August are like fire and ice – their chemistry’s hotter than a summer day, and they argue like they’re auditioning for a reality show. Seriously, their banter is on fire. And it’s not all sunshine and roses.The writing style is so so good it’s like Tessa Bailey is your best friend who’s telling you a juicy story. The plot is like you are on emotional rollercoaster, and i went like “Oh-my-god-did-they-just-do-that?”. And the supporting characters – they’re like the cherry on top. The ending is like a grand finale like k-drama with a bonus epilogue that’ll leave you swooning.

      5. Shreya

        This book reminds me of the time when life was all about simping for a Tessa Bailey man. August Cates is the best book man I’ve read about. The steam? Physically had to fan myself to lessen the temperature of the room.August Cates has won me over with his charm and humor and his big caring heart.That being said, Natalie Vos his wifey, has to be protected at ALL COSTS.I just believe that Tessa Bailey is the Picasso of smut scenes.Their romance was CRAZY. And the steam. scenes, IMPOSSIBLE. At least by human standards. August Cates has taken over my life completely. This book has changed me.• God Bless Her for the Epilogue because my poor heart needed that glimpse into the future.I loved this book and I believe everyone else will too.

        Here’s the thing, if you are a Romance Lover in this generation. You have to have heard of Tessa Bailey. And I feel like at least for me, if I am reading a Tessa Bailey book, I would either hate the main lead or LOVE them, there’s no in between with her and good thing about ‘Unfortunately Yours’ is that I LOVED them!!! I mean Natalie and August were so good together that they literally fir like puzzle pieces!.And don’t even get me started on the tropes. The author certainly knew what she was doing. Like, the main trope of the book is Marriage of Convinience, which in itself is a killer good trope but sprinkle a little Enemies to Lovers in the mix and top it off with some witty banter!!!! I’m dead!.One thing I really liked about this book was that I actually liked Natalie’s personality a lot. She wasn’t just a Rich Brat and the author made sure to show the other layers of her personality. Unpopular opinion but for August I didn’t feel that unraveling of his layers as much but he too was a really good character..Their banter was probably the best part of the book. Their witty remarks, the poking fun and the roasting! It was actually a very funny book. I liked their chemistry but I liked their tension better ;).Anyway, if you are a Romance Lover and somehow still haven’t heard of Tessa Bailey… What are you doing? Go pick this book up!

        “And when I look at you, I swear I have. Existed just for you all this time. It feels like I have.”― Tessa Bailey, Unfortunately YoursIn this charming narrative, August Cates, an ordinary person striving to make a living, and Natalie Vos, a former heiress who has fallen from grace, make an odd couple.You won’t be let down by August, who also knows exactly how to put the heat up. Although Natalie has a propensity to make snap judgments, she is an easy person to like and understand.I couldn’t help but plunge into their life. It was too tempting to resist the possibility of their steamy chemistry, that will leave you hyperventilating.The characters August and Natalie breathe life into the story. The chemistry is explosive, as is the heat. They both have charming personalities and self-assurance.Tessa Bailey writes with such pure joy. This book is an amazing delight to read because of her wit and humor, which are evident on every page. I was completely enthralled by Natalie and August’s smart banter and palpable attraction because they are two exquisitely developed characters.

        Tessa’s best book to date🍇🍷𝒜𝑅𝒞 𝑅𝑒𝓋𝒾𝑒𝓌🍷🍇𝑼𝒏𝒇𝒐𝒓𝒕𝒖𝒏𝒂𝒕𝒆𝒍𝒚 𝒀𝒐𝒖𝒓𝒔By: @tessabaileyisanauthor⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5 Stars𝐑𝐞𝐚𝐝 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐢𝐟 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐥𝐨𝐯𝐞:💜Marriage of Convenience💜Enemies to Lovers💜Constant Banter💜Laugh Out Loud Moments💜He Falls FirstWhen I buddy read Secretly Yours, I was instantly attracted to Natalie and her dry sense of humor. Seeing her and August interact in the first book was hilarious and once I knew she had her own book coming I was practically salivating waiting for it!Cut to my new favorite book by Tessa Bailey! This is a masterpiece. Like, no joke. I was reading it in the airport and could not stop myself from laughing out loud like a hyena and people thought I was deranged.After Secretly Yours, Natalie and August are “enemies” in that they can’t stop from throwing insults and jabs at one another every time they see each other. Underneath this facade, they’re both so attracted to one another and get off on getting the other riled up. When Natalie learns she can’t access her trust fund she needs to start her own finance startup unless she is married, insert ex-Navy Seal, August Cates. August can’t get a bank loan to save his friends winery dream, but with Natalie, a winery heiress, as his wife and partner, he just might be able to try to salvage his god-awful winery.The banter, the humor, the jokes! It was perfection! The absolutely hilarious one liners got me every time. Underneath all the humor though, August and Natalie are two people hardened by life on the outside but marshmallows on the inside. Their relationship works so well partly because they both can be brutally honest with each other and that they have an extreme sense of loyalty. It also helps that August is a literal Sex God 🤷🏼‍♀️ It was so beautiful to watch them drop their guards and fully dive into their “sham marriage”.Thank you @avonbooks & @netgalley for this eARC and thank you @tessabaileyisanauthor & Avon Books for this early physical copy!🍇ᴜɴꜰᴏʀᴛᴜɴᴀᴛᴇʟʏ ʏᴏᴜʀꜱ ʀᴇʟᴇᴀꜱᴇꜱ ᴊᴜɴᴇ 6ᴛʜ!🍇Old review:This might be my new favorite book by Tessa! I fell in love with Natalie in Secretly Yours and was so excited that she would have her own book! I also love that I had read the first book which gave me the background information that sets this book up to be so perfect.The banter, the humor, the jokes! I was constantly laughing at this book! Like out loud. In public. It was perfection! The absolutely hilarious one liners got me every time. August and Natalie are just two hilariously snarky people and it made reading so much fun.I love that this is an enemies to lovers story with a marriage of convenience aspect. Just like Tessa said in her readers note, it only works if he’s been obsessed with her from the start. And my god, August LOVED Natalie from the very beginning. I love the constant correction these two went through in order to stop using jabs as a defense mechanism in order to let the other person in. It was so real and just showed how these two had such great chemistry and their willingness to be what the other needed.I could go on and on, and I just might another time. But this was perfect. No notes. Just buy it!

      9. Michael Wild

        A fun and easy light read.A ‘Taming of the Shrew’ or ‘Kiss me Kate’ type story. An easy enjoyable escapist novel, with its heart in the right place.

      10. Heather

        Very cute!“For as long as August Cates could remember, his dick had ruined everything.”This book was SO much better than the first in the series. If you weren’t a fan don’t let that stop you from enjoying this one.Natalie Vos is back in her hometown after losing her corporate job in NYC. She comes from prime Winery royalty, and immediately looks down her nose at our very sexy, very bad wine maker, August Cates.This is an enemies to lovers, he fall first, he falls HARD, marriage of convenience when these two crash into each other.Natalie needs money from her trust fund to get her life moving in the right direction again.August needs money so he doesn’t lose his winery that he’s created in memory of his best friend that died while they were Seals together.Natalie can’t get her trust fund without marrying…. and August doesn’t ask questions when she asks him to be her husband.I found August so endearing. He’s got a great sense of honor and duty, obviously, but he’s SO into Natalie off the bat even though they bicker like they hate each other. He’s charming and funny and that DIRTY mouth. I just love him. I love how he holds Natalie up, and supports her no matter what. He also tries really hard to be a good communicator while wrestling with telling her everything all at once.Natalie was easy to relate to. Her family and colleagues always underestimating her, and her intelligence, and her ability to be an asset. So of course she’s suspicious of August when he keeps certain parts of himself from her.These two do marriage of convenience RIGHT, and the chemistry between them is SO hot.”So technically, we didn’t have to get married. We just… wanted to?””Incorrect, I had to marry you.””I know that no matter how it happened, it was right. I can’t breathe for loving you and loving you is the only way I can breathe.”
