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 romance—without burning down the house?

I FLIPPING LOVE YOU, set in the Shacking Up world, follows two people, both working in real estate, who find themselves vying for the same properties in the Hamptons, leading to a sometimes-not-so-friendly competition.

smartfunny ROMANCE hot SWOON

I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting is the third contemporary romance in the Shacking Up series. I haven’t read the previous books, but jumped in with no issues. Summer in the Hamptons flipping houses and falling in love. Yes, please! I had a lot of fun listening to the narrations of Rose Dioro & Jacob Morgan. A dog, growth and swoons made this the perfect summer listen.

Coffee Dates with I Flipping Love You

  • First Date:  I loved the setup for how Pierce Whitfield  and Rian Sutter met. It was awkward, snarky and the chemistry between them zinged. Pierce is spending the time in the Hamptons helping his brother flip houses after a debacle at his family firm where he works as their patent lawyer. Rian and her twin sister  spent their childhood in the Hamptons until their family lost everything. The two sisters live together and sell real estate while diligently saving to buy their first home to flip. I loved the setup and couldn’t wait to see Pierce and Rian tango.
  • Second Date: I loved the second encounter between these two. Pierce finds himself quite smitten with Rian and loves the thrill of the chase. Rian on the other handle is in deep denial, despite the sexy dreams she’s having nightly about him.  She refuses to believe he is truly interested. Rian is the more reserved twin and doesn’t see herself as desirable, particularly by Mr. Yummy. But the Hamptons is small and soon these two are bumping into each other everywhere. I loved the banter and the interaction with both of their siblings. It wasn’t long before the inevitable happened and it was hot, a little funny and felt genuine.
  • Third Date: I loved seeing the competition between families and when these two got together with their siblings the teasing banter, and tension pulled me in. Complications arise when Rian thinks Pierce and her brother have betrayed them. The girls have secrets and once Pierce figures it out everything falls into place. Thankfully, the drama wasn’t overdone and allowed for character growth, declarations and plenty of swoons-worthy, melt your heart moments.

I listened to I Flipping Love You and delighted in Rose Dioro and Jacob Morgan’s narration. I felt they captured everyone’s voice, the playful tone and the sexual energy. From pacing to tone they compliment each other allowing for smooth transitions and happy ears.

      I tend to prefer the subgenres of romance like romantic suspense but this was such a fun listen.
