From New York Times bestseller, Kendall Ryan, comes a sexy new standalone novel.
My tempting and very alpha friend Sterling Quinn is someone I consider off-limits. It's not just that we're friends, he's also cocky, confident, and British, which means he's a walking aphrodisiac. But lately he's been giving me the look. You know the one. When he thinks I'm not paying attention, and his gaze lingers for too long. When we start working together, that's when the sexual tension between us gets so thick, I want to hack through it with a machete.
I want to make all these deep feelings I've harbored for him disappear, because there's no way this can end well. The lines between business and pleasure become irrevocably blurred, and I'm stuck between a rock and Sterling's very, very hard place. Rather than keep a level head about our growing attraction, Sterling wants to go all in, showing me just how explosive we can be together.
But I've been around long enough to know that this British bad boy is more than my heart can handle. I'm not about to be cast aside like yesterday's underwear when he's done having fun. Sterling's never been told no, and he's not about to put his ego aside and play by my rules. But I never thought he'd fight so dirty.
The Fix Up is a standalone contemporary romance by Kendall Ryan. Even though this book works as a complete standalone it is a spin off novel of Kendall’s Hitched trilogy. It takes place in the same universe and the characters are friends of the main couple from Hitched, Olivia and Noah. Trust me, when I say you don’t need to read Hitched to enjoy The Fix Up. However; hitched is a great trilogy on its’ own and I would definitely recommend that you read it.The Fix Up is a really great read. I think I still enjoyed Hitched a little bit more, but this comes in as a close second.
The Fix Up follows along in the same vein as Hitched, but in this case the main guy is British. He has recently come into a rather large inheritance (we are talking $50 million large) but there is a hitch (he-he) in order to receive the inheritance, he must be married. (again, let’s put aside the actually legality of this, and pretend this is a valid way to pass along an inheritance, because it makes the story so much more fun.)
One thing I want to point out is that I found the summary to be a bit misleading. I thought that the two main characters, Camryn and Sterling would be really good friends turned more, but in reality they didn’t know each other all that well. They had met at their mutual friends wedding and maybe a couple of other odd times, but nothing more substantial than that. It didn’t really affect the story, I was just expecting them to know each other better starting off. either way, Camryn is a PR expert and she steps in to help Sterling find a suitable wife so he can secure his inheritance. Sterling has other ideas. Namely, Camryn. This was such a fun read. I love books where one person is so clearly pursuing the other person. Probably because I love determination, and Sterling certainly is determined.
Bottom line: I think everyone knows that Kendall Ryan is an excellent author, so obviously The Fix Up is excellently executed and well written. The characters are life like and fully fleshed out and the chemistry and romance can’t be beat. It is really great. The Fix Up is perfect for fans of the Hitched series who want more!
