Dream Girl Drama

Tessa Bailey

A steamy chance encounter between a professional hockey player and the manic pixie dream girl he just can't seem to forget takes a turn when the pair realize that their parents are engaged--in an all-new rom-com by #1 New York Times bestselling author Tessa Bailey.

When professional hockey player Sig Gauthier's car breaks down and his phone dies, he treks into a posh private country club to call a tow truck, where he encounters the alluring Chloe Clifford, the manic pixie dream girl who captivates him immediately with her sense of adventure and penchant for stealing champagne.

Sparks fly during a moonlight kiss and the enamored pair can't wait to see each other again, but when Sig finally arrives to meet his dad's new girlfriend over dinner, Chloe is confusingly also there. Turns out the girlfriend is Chloe's mother. Oh, and they're engaged.

Sig's dream girl is his future stepsister.

Though the pair is now wary of being involved romantically, Chloe, a sheltered harp prodigy, yearns to escape her controlling mother. Sig promises to teach her the ins and outs of independence in Boston--but not inside his bedroom. They both know there can never be more than friendship between a famous hockey player and his high-society, soon-to-be stepsister. But keeping their relationship platonic grows harder amid the developing family drama, especially knowing they were meant for so much more...

Praise for this book

"Bestseller Bailey brings her signature blend of heat and sweet to her delightful second Big Shots romance...Bailey creates flawed but endearing characters that readers will fall head over heels for. Her nimble plotting captivates from the first page, and a strong supporting cast--especially precocious Lissa and Tallulah's friend Chloe, who seems poised to be the heroine of book three--add dimension to the romance. This is another winner from Bailey." -- Publishers Weekly on The Au Pair Affair

"Bailey delivers her trademark high-heat, spicy romance, but it's the emotional connection between Wells and Josephine that makes...this golf romance...a winner." -- Kirkus Reviews on Fangirl Down

"Steamy, saucy and incredibly witty, Fangirl Down is the spellbinding grumpy/sunshine sports romance you didn't know you needed in your life." -- The Nerd Daily

"Bestseller Bailey hits a hole-in-one with this charming golf-themed rom-com...Wells and Josephine are characters readers will embrace, especially fans of the grumpy/sunshine trope. This one's a keeper." -- Publishers Weekly on Fangirl Down

"This book was steamy! Tessa Bailey is known for spicy romances, and this one delivered...I found both main characters endearing and enjoyed their love story...Fangirl Down will make you swoon!" -- Los Angeles Book Review

"Tessa Bailey is the queen of rom-coms. Long may she reign!" -- Julie Murphy, #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Merry Little Meet Cute

"Nothing makes my heart catch fire like a Tessa Bailey book. She is all things magic and dirty talk." -- Elena Armas, New York Times bestselling author of The Spanish Love Deception

"Tessa Bailey's writing stands out in all the right sexy ways." -- Buzzfeed

"Bailey writes banter and rom-com scenarios with aplomb, but for those who like their romance on the spicier side, she's also the Michelangelo of dirty talk. She wields filth like Da Vinci does a paintbrush, and there's a lot to be said for an author who can fill such exchanges with all the requisite heat, enthusiastic consent, and yes, even humor, of such a scenario without veering into corny territory." -- Entertainment Weekly
