She’s driving me crazy. Or am I the one driving myself crazy? I can’t tell anymore. Ever since Scarlet Rocket showed up in the flesh, she’s turned my structured world upside down. My neatly ordered life, my hand-painted Aliens versus Vampires figurines, my expertly curated comics collection—none of these things provide any shelter from her sexy, sassy onslaught.

⭐⭐⭐⭐! You’ve Got Fail (stand-alone). Willis strikes a deal with con-artist Scarlet to stop un-officially impersonating his online persona & instead do it officially!

You’ve Got Fail (stand-alone) opens up to relationship adviser and blogger and soon-to-be author Willis Halloran aka Sparky realizing someone is impersonating him.

He cannot afford to be linked to impropriety!

Granted he may have shammed the public believing that he is a female, but that doesn’t mean he wants a sexy red-head pranc

She’s making me crazy. And I only just met her.

If you enjoy romantic comedies, then I’m telling you to IMMEDIATELY #oneclick this book. Heck if you hate romantic comedies, I think you should buy this book. I read it on kindle unlimited, but decided to buy it immediately after THAT is how good it is.

A con and a nerd. Banter that is oh so good. Comedic timing that is BEYOND spot on. Agh. This was amazing writing. A fun romance. Interesting characters. I loved this book so much I can’t even properl

Well... I'm disappointed. I had higher expectations from this book.
First of all... that cover is not the one for this book. Willis had blue eyes and the guy on the cover screws that. And what kind of name is Willis?! I couldn't picture him all hot and nerdy.
Second of all... The story had no continuity. It felt like the action was written in a rush. Actually... there was no action (except the ending).
And how fast Willis forgave Scarlet. Ow, come on! 🙄
However, I liked the idea of a con and a n
2.5 stars.
An unusual romantic comedy from an author that excels in dark romances .
This was sort of a mess in my opinion.
I didn't hate it, it had potential but I was never really able to invest in the story or its characters. Neither were very believable.
I did somewhat like Willis as the lovable nerd with a sex blog but Scarlet didn't make sense for me. I couldn't relate to her either as the heartless con or the woman who is simply desperate to save her sister and willing to do whatever it take

First of all, the cover is gorgeous! It is simple, clean and nicely color coordinated. Obviously the model is not at all someone to scoff at. My only gripe is that more effort should have been put into giving the cover that geek and nerd feeling. Possibilities are endless with this one.

The story itself is beautifully frothy and funny. The romance just flows through despite everything. Even the plot is treated with just enough care that the story comfortably steers away from being a generic supe

I really enjoyed this freaking cute!!! What I loved tho was Willis Halloran...he for sure was no alpha that we’re used to. Hes a huge nerd that loves comic books ...super hero movies ..collecting action figures and writes a relationship blog under the name “ Scarlet Rocket “ but one night his world is turned upside down when he meets a sexy redhead con artist who pretend that she’s Scarlet Rocket.

You Got Fail was silly..super funny and sexy!! Definitely recommen

I do love Celia Aaron's works, but this one fell a little flat for me. I would be lying if I said that I want to finish this for fake Scarlet. We all know Willis is the reason I continued with this.

So, of course before I start my review I have to say thank you to my girl Celia Aaron. Not everyone gets the opportunity to receive an ARC, and I am happy to have been one of the lucky ones. You always rockin my socks babe!!!!

Why didn't you guys tell me this book would make me feel so happy? This book is the perfect blend of hilarious, dirty, sweet, and sexy.
And yet, none of you said, "Hey, dummy, read this book. You'll like it."
Shame on you guys.

Anyway, Willis and Scarlet meet in the most unexpected of ways.

Nerdy guy who is a relationship blogger and writer who hides behind a female persona and a girl who pretends to be that female persona so she can con and pickpocket unsuspecting marks. What's not to like?

First of all, I love the title of this 😊 total draw card for me. And if that wasn’t enough, the story-line certainly is.
Willis writes a successful blog under a female name, giving him the perfect excuse to be a recluse, until… a woman shows up pretending to be him… her… you get my point.

The cat and mouse game between these two is fantastic. I love that she’s not like your typical heroine, and that he’s not your typical hero. I love that there is a sex toy manufacturer – who happens to have the

This book had me rolling. Scarlet is the chick you want to punch and cuddle at the same time. once you find out her reasoning you sympathize but the chemistry between her and Willis is scorching! Willis is an H that you don't see much in stories. He is a total nerd, a lot awkward and hella funny. He is also protective, though he doesn't go all alpha in the story. His traits make him the perfect combo of a man.

Scarlet is a con artist finding marks and committing petty theft. She takes a name of a

This book. These characters were overly ridiculous but man what a fun read. I don't think I've had this much fun with side characters in a book in a long time don't get me wrong I loved the main characters especially that sexy nerd Willis but there was something special about the secondary characters.

You've Got Fail wasn't only a light, fun read but had an undertone of darkness which I enjoyed. I also loved the premise of this story and I definitely recommend it.

I have been dying to read You've Got Fail since before I even knew the book's title. The minute it was announced that Celia Aaron had a Contemporary Romance with a heaping pile of humor in the works I knew I had to have it. I got even more excited when I read the blurb and saw the cover...holy smokes is that cover model HOT. It promised humor, smut, romance, and an actual plot. Crazy, I know.

"I'd worked for years to build my blog, and this imposter was schmoozing along on my hard work. Not cool

You’ve Got Fail by Celia AAron was a fun, flirty laugh a minute kind of insta-love at first sight romance between a blogger and a con artist. If you’re feeling down and in need of a pick-me-up after the Christmas shopping rush, then this is the book for you. Lots of hot sexy times, humour, gags and a sex toy with a mind of its own.

This was a fantastic story!
Willis is the shy nerd who likes to hide behind his computer. Scarlet is the girl you're gonna love to hate. I have a feeling she is going to steal your heart ;)
Willis gives new life to sexy nerds all over the world...I mean he can dirty talk with the best of them...he shed his shyness pretty quick in order to rocket his way in to Scarlet's panties. His fun loving attitude and his dirty words will have you dropping your drawers for him in no time. Eepp the skillzzzz h
You've Got Fail by Celia Aaron is a romantic story featuring blogging, cons, and sex advice.Willis Halloran is a woman with a successful blog, or at least that is what the world thinks because of his Scarlet Rocket persona. When someone starts impersonating Scarlet, in the flesh, he has to act to preserve his reputation and his book deal. Scarlet (fake) needs money fast to get her sister out of debt with a mobster and Willis/Scarlet (real) is an easy mark and while she waits for him to show up s ...more

I’m just going to start off by saying I had mixed feelings about this book for a majority of the first half. I was struggling to connect with the story. I was really questioning whether I was going to be able to finish it at all. But I did, and I’m glad I stuck with it.

I quickly realized why I had a strong aversion to it at first…I didn’t like “Scarlet” one bit. No love for her. None. Nada. I found her to be rude to Willis upon first meeting him (and many, many times after), and she just downrig

Scarlet Rocket meets Scarlet Rocket. One is a geeky ripped guy who loves all things Marvel comics and Reptilian Commander and the other is a sexy redhead kleptomaniac with a rubic cube champion for a sister. I was exhausted and so thoroughly and totally entertained.

I cracked out the Wonderwoman tshirt and got my geek on but all wallets and sparkly bracelets were safe. Oh, I just remembered Sparky! Such a great nickname.

I can honestly say I think Celia Aaron created two brilliant characters in Sc

Willis Halloran is the brains behind a popular advice blog and to the questioning masses, he's known as Scarlet Rocket. Willis is comfortable behind his computer screen, doling out sage advice, but with an upcoming book release he's got to figure out how to get some hype for his book going and how is he goin to handle the possibility of a book tour?

What a fabulous, laugh out loud, sexy, romantic comedy that will have you hooked from the start story from Celia Aaron. I loved how she wrote a story about a nerd, albeit a sexy nerd who falls for the beautiful and sassy con woman. It’s a unique love story but one that had me hooked from the first page. Scarlett, the con woman, had a story behind why she was doing the things she was doing. I really started to like her more when her true motivation behind the cons came out. And Willis, the hot al ...more
Sissy's Romance Book Review
You've Got Fail by Celia Aaron is a funny and hot story! Willis writes a blog giving advice about dating and relationships. It is a very well known and heavily followed much so that Scarlet Rocket aka Willis Halloran has become famous. But since the blog is supposed to be written by Scarlet Rocket, a women instead of a man, Willis doesn't go out to public events. Willis is a writer that doesn't go out much and at first appearance is disheveled looking. After having the flu and not writ ...more

This was a very interesting book from the beginning to the end. I absolutely loved it . It was interesting, gripping, suspenseful and at some points kept you on the edge of your seat. I loved the relationship between Willis and Scarlet. Those two together are just a great couple. I loved how they got together and attempted to stay together. This was a very well written book from beginning to end. This was a great storyline. I really do love the character chemistry in this book with all the chara ...more
Light hearted, one time read. Liked the characters. The resolution of the actual problem at the end of the book was done in such a ridiculous manner. This dropped the rating for me. Otherwise I was enjoying it. Maybe 3.75 stars.

Este es el segundo libro que leo de Celia Aaron, anteriormente me había dejado un buen sabor de boca pero honestamente este libro dejó mucho que desear.

Note: This is a full-length romantic comedy that will have you guffawing, or at least snorting hard.

“Willis.” I wrapped one leg around his hips.
He stopped kissing me and met my eyes. “That’s the first time you’ve called me by my name.”
My bruised lips parted on a pant. “Slip of the tongue.”
