Fangirl Down

Avon. (Big Shots, Bk. 1). Feb. 2024. 384p. ISBN 9780063308367. pap. $18.99. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
Josephine Doyle is pro golfer Wells Whitaker’s number one fan. Unfortunately, he hasn’t given her much to be a fan of lately. Problems on and off the course have tanked his career, and when he spectacularly quits the pro tour after a difficult tournament, Josephine is forced to give up her fangirl status. After a hurricane devastates her family’s Florida pro shop, Josephine is shocked when Wells shows up and offers her a chance to be his new caddy so he can return to the tour and she can get the money to repair her family business and regain her health insurance. Before long, sparks are flying, but Josephine and Wells both worry that falling for each other will ruin their professional relationship and Wells’s newfound success. Josephine and Wells are well-developed, multilayered characters, and their relationship, backstories, and Josephine’s type 1 diabetes are all sensitively explored in Bailey’s (Unfortunately Yours) sexy, swoony first foray into sports romance—the beginning of a new series.
VERDICT Recommended for fans of grumpy-sunshine pairings and Bailey’s previous work.
