I’m not too proud to admit that finding Mr. Right involves swiping right. Right? Welcome to dating in avocado toastland.

Here I am, on my first blind date, ever, courtesy of a smartphone app and my two annoying best friends.

So what is Chris “Fletch” Fletcher doing, walking across the room, looking at his phone like he’s pattern matching a picture to find a real person he’s

This book starts with a promise of rom com. I dived into it. I need some comedy on my weekend. The rom com is about 40% of this book. Then in the middle, it drags on and on. I even managed to not like Fiona during the middle of the story.her attitude towards Chris is annoying.

While Chris tries his best to accomodate to Fiona's childish behaviour in the middle of the book, he manages to grow on me. He is sweet, protective hero. I think in the middle the story needs some plot/ twist.

Another great instalment to the series and I'm really happy I took a chance with this author. It was interesting to see Fiona's growth from the beginning to the end. I could appreciate her struggle accepting her past and blending it with her now.

The love story was pretty cute but I don't know how she resisted him for so long. With his big heart, sense of humour and hot bod, he's the full package. I loved these two together.

I will definitely be checking out more of J

Some Julia Kent books are “Fluffy” cotton candy and sweet redemption. Some are “Perky” gluten-free goodness with a side of sass and optimism.

This book, though, is *Feisty.* The first chapter of the book is a heart-stopping battle that Fiona “Feisty” Gaskill fights and wins in a burst of catharsis (we all dream of having a perfect, Chuck Norris-style back-roundhouse kick when we really need one), and then the book glides into a slow-burn, rib-tickling, perfectly pitched enemies-to-lovers waltz t

I really enjoyed Chris and Fiona's story. They had an awesome enemies to lovers vibe throughout the first 2 books and I was happy to finally get their story. They have a bit of emotional baggage to get through thanks to Fiona's long held grudge, but I thought the plot of the book really worked to help see these two in a new light. Chris had much more depth than I previously thought and he had me swooning a time (or ten) with his swee

Feisty by Julia Kent is an enemies to lovers romance that follows the story of Fiona “Feisty” Gaskill and Chris “Hot Boxer” Fletcher.

When they were in middle school, Fletch gave Fiona the nickname she’s tried to escape her entire life. And, she hated him for it. So when a tragic situation gives them both a little common ground, they start to explore what they’ve both secretly desired since a failed kiss attempt 17 years prior.

This is not the first time I am reading and reviewing Julia Kent. I have already read the two books in this Do over series, that is, Fluffy and Perky; Feisty is the third book in this series. Though all three books are stand-alone but if you start reading from Fluffy then you'll get the better understandings of the books. As this series is based on the Three friends Marley, Persephone and Fiona and Yes, feisty is Fiona's story.

Accidentally went out of order but fell in love with this book.

Feisty was something that I needed today. Fiona is my spirit animal because hot damn - that girl was feisty. Also, she was a boss ass bitch. Then there's Chris, who is someone that she has known since they were kids. He always had a nickname for her.. so we already knew that they were each other's school crush.

Let's be real, I loved them. It was beyond easy shipping them together.. especially with what they went through throughout t

Fiesty is a beautifully stunning story of discovering and accepting every part of what makes you who you are. There are no half measures throughout this journey, and at the end you will find something truly breathtaking. Of course, there is even more to this story, but it all interweaves and mingles together to form a perfect union. A union that no one can tear apart because the universe itself has brought these two people together. A pox on the person who dares to interrupt what Fate has deemed ...more

Julia Kent delivers a knockout, or better yet, a roundhouse kick! This story grabbed ahold of my attention from the beginning and held it throughout. Feisty really gave me the feels. Kent hooked me with action, emotion, and heart. Then she would hit us with some humor and romance. One minute I’d find myself tearing up, another I’d be laughing out loud, and next I’d be swooning.
I absolutely loved these characters. They were so endearing and I loved getting to spend time with them. I enjo

Feisty, I mean, Fiona (she hates that nickname!) is in a bit of an existential crisis. First, the backstory on the nickname. In middle school, Chris “Fletch" Fletcher tried to kiss her, Fiona drop-kicked him into next week, and the moniker was born. It seems Fletch meant it as a compliment since he’s carried a torch for her through the years, but Fiona is still carrying a grudge seventeen years later.

Now Fiona’s world is changing faster than she can keep up. After a traumatic event at the presc

I've really enjoyed Fluffy, Perky and now Feisty. This fun funny book came along at just the right time. A true street reliever, cute characters- kids, but not too OTT.
Fiona, "Feisty" is friends with Mallory (from Fluffy) and Perky.
Fiona is a preschool teacher. She works at a co-op school. The parents are very active in contributing to the school. The class is on a baby-cam type transparency.
Early in the book, Feisty shows great courage.

I was pretty bummed about this series after the last installment. Perky was not a good fit for me, but I still held out hope for the series, and this book really pulled it out! It was laugh out loud funny!

Fiona was an awes

5 star review Feisty by Julia Kent 
This is Fiona “Feisty” Gaskill and Chris “Fletch” Fletcher story and it was everything that I hoped it would be and so much more.

Julia Kent is one of my go to authors for RomCom books. There is something about her style of writing that draws me in and I cannot put her books down.

Julia Kent never fails to deliver; whenever I see her name I know that I am in for a fabulous read. As with previous books I have read I was in stitches having laughed so much I crie

Feisty is here, but don't you dare let her hear you call her that or you'll find yourself drop-kicked all the way back to 7th Grade. 

At the tender age of 12, Fiona Gaskill was not going to let anyone mess with her, so when a young Chris Fletcher tried to kiss her, she kicked his backside and gave him a black-eye in the process, and so the nickname 'Feisty' was born.  17 years later and Fiona is still holding onto her dislike of the name and the man who gave it to her...until she forced to be Fei

I was sent an ARC copy of this book.As with all Julia Kent books I could not wait to read it and was gutted when it was finished as I wanted to joy to continue.
We follow Fiesty, Perky and Mallory through Mallorys pre wedding events and Fiestys scary, funny, and spiritual life events.

Fiona "Feisty" reunites us with Perky, Parker, Will and Mallory..and Chris "Fletch" Fletcher.. along with all of the pre weddiing rituals Mallory has and wants.

She immediatly goes into protection mode and does what ever it takes to protect the kids in her class.

I was prepared to laugh my butt off as I did with the others in this series as soon as I’d read the excerpt. I’ve always loved Feisty’s character in the story, but I see that Perky is really the one who totally cracks me up and connects all the characters in such a hilarious way. That said, Feisty, or Fiona as she prefers to be called, still had a very sweet and perfect romance in this book. It was impossible not to love Chris, or Fletch, as he was often called.

Feisty is the 3rd book in the Do-Over series and I loved it. This romantic comedy was hilarious, and I loved Fiona and Chris together. They had great chemistry and their banter had me amused. The addition of Fiona's friends added another layer of hilarity and there were certain times during this story I was laughing aloud. This novel had a bit of it all, action, emotion, swoon and steam, likable, relatable characters and a plot that will hold your attention. I enjoyed it all and would highly rec ...more

Feisty by Julia Kent is a romantic comedy that I listened to on audio narrated by Erin Mallon. This is the third book in The Do-Over Series but each book can be read as a standalone. However, I would recommend reading in order since it does reference characters from the previous books.

Julia does an amazing job making the characters very relatable. You just can’t help but fall in love with Chris (Fletcher) and Fiona (Feisty).

Erin did an amazing job on the narration. I love that she uses differe

Feisty is a standalone read but after reading Perky I couldn't wait to get my hands on this story. This is Fiona's “Feisty” story. I loved this one. I have loved reading about friends Mal, Persephone and Fiona but I think this one has been my favorite. The nickname Feisty really fits Fiona. She definitely is feisty and you never really know what she going to do next. Chris “Fletch” is the reason Fiona has the nickname feisty. They knew each other from when they were kids.

Loved the characters in the series. This is the first book I have read in this series and now I need to go back and read the first two!!! Fiona (Perky) and Chris (Fletch) have known each other since childhood. He gave her the nickname "Fiesty" and she has resented him ever since. She's a formidable person, who is a preschool teacher. She will do anything to protect the people she cares about. The universe keeps putting these two in each others paths. I love the way Julia Kent has created these c ...more

Fantastic laugh-out-loud, sexy, serious, romantic comedy. Julia Kent writes amazing stuff, taking you deep in the heart (and energy vibrations!) of her characters. FIESTY starts out with a shock--an all-too-real danger--and then launches us into a slow-burn romance of two souls meant to be together but struggling to let go of the past. Highly recommend!

This book was EVERYTHING!! I have been in this weird reading funk for so long. This book really got me out of it! I could NOT wait until the next moment I could read, I even stayed up later two nights. I'm not sure I can say enough about it!

I LOVE Fiona! I don't think we got the full experience of who she was in the last few books, but we got to see a little more of her spiritual side in Perky. I was super curious where that would lead us. I had NO idea this book would start out exactly where we

The third instalment in the this standalone series. Brings together Fletch and Feisty who have been dancing around their attraction for so long neither of them can act about it until they get a unexpected kick in the right direction.

Fiona is the brawn of the group so to speak. Her nickname doesn't have a unfortunate story like Mal or Perky. She just happened to dropkick a boy she hate in middle school and taught him a lesson. However that lesson hasn't been forgotten. She become a go-getter not

Stepping into someone’s story on the worst day of their life is intriguing and engaging and that is exactly what Julia Kent does. The reader is immersed into the story of Fiona Gaskill immediately and it is impossible to stop turning the pages until the story is complete. Ms. Kent writes characters who are human and flawed, and stories which you can’t help but be drawn in to.

As the story unfolds we see how one event (or several in Fiona’s case) can shape the life and the decisions of an individ

I really liked Fiona and Chris’s romance. Their meet cute basically was in middle school when he tried to kiss her and he drop kicks him. Her kick boxing lessons of once upon a time come in handy again in this book which is great but also causes some internal struggle for her. Chris gives Fiona the Nickname Feisty after the initial drop kick and it sticks with her. Now as a grown woman and this other incident which leads to her having to use her kick boxing lessons- she’s facing this battle betw ...more

I believe it's time to stop torturing myself and just stop reading this series. The characters are all so fake and there simply isn't enough chemistry between the two 'love-interests'. This book may have been the worst one yet, since the other two at least had something interesting in the plot, no matter how ridiculous those plots were. Both Fiona and Chris were incredibly stereotypical and boring, and the plot felt forced. I decided to pick up this series because it seemed fun, lighthearted, an ...more
