Review – The Buy-In by: Emma St. Clair

“You can’t Schitt’s Creek a town, Tank.”
“And you can’t
 verb a noun, son.”

When a family of former pro football players buy a small Texas town, they didn’t intend to start a war with its residents … or to fall in love.

Ever since his career-ending injury, Pat has bounced from job to job, idea to idea, short-lived relationship to short-lived relationship. But when his father purchases the town of Sheet Cake, Pat suddenly sees his life with clear purpose: get his brothers on board with his dad’s wild idea and win back the one woman who got away.

Lindy was supposed to be traveling the world, not stuck in a small town, caring for her niece. But she would do anything to keep custody of Jo–even if that looks like a marriage of convenience with the man who already broke her heart once.

Now if she can only keep herself from falling back in love with her husband…

This is a small town, marriage of convenience romantic comedy with plenty of sizzle while keeping the bedroom door closed. It’s the first in a spinoff series following Harper’s brothers (from Falling for Your Best Friend). You don’t need to have read the Love Clichés series first to enjoy this book.

Super adorable rom-com with all the fuzzy feels. 

I loved the “meant to be” aspect of Lindy and Pat’s relationship. You can tell they were made for each other right from the start. Pat is definitely a 10000% the all-around good guy. He’s athletic, wants to help everyone, good-looking, and it doesn’t hurt that he was an old NFL pro. 

I will say for some reason, this book didn’t pull me in like I wanted it to. It started off a little slow and I kept hoping for a hook, but I didn’t really get it. However, the story is super, super cute and has so many “aww” moments that you cannot help but smile at. Definitely a feel-good read!
