Stalking and restraining orders are a thing of Alayna Wither’s past. With her MBA newly in hand, she has her future figured out—move up at the nightclub she works at and stay away from any guy who might trigger her obsessive love disorder. A perfect plan.
But what Alayna didn’t figure on is Hudson Pierce, the new owner of the nightclub. He’s smart, rich, and gorgeous—the kind of guy Alayna knows to stay away from if she wants to keep her past tendencies in check. Except, Hudson’s fixed his sights on her. He wants her in his bed and makes no secret of it.
Avoiding him isn’t an option after he offers a business proposition she can’t turn down and she’s drawn further into his universe, unable to resist his gravitational pull. When she learns Hudson has a dark history of his own, she realizes too late that she’s fallen for the worst man she could possibly get involved with. Or maybe their less than ideal pasts give them an opportunity to heal each other and finally find the love their lives have been missing.
Fixed on You is the first book in Fixed series. When I read the synopsis for the first time, I thought this book were like the other hundred romance book I’ve read; poor girl met rich guy, poor girl fell for rich guy, and some sort of arrangement is formed between them. Boy, was I wrong about this one. Laurelin Paige brilliantly put a twist that has me hooked and makes Fixed series one of my favorite series. Fixed on You is emotionally devastating at one moment, sweetly warm the next, then scorching hot in the blink of an eye.
Alayna Withers just finished her MBA and is working as a bartender at a bar called The Sky Launch. As she tries to plan her future in Sky Launch, she thinks she has it all planned out, that is until she meets Hudson Pierce, the new owner of Sky Launch and her new boss, though she didn’t know that the first time they met. Alayna also has a problem with stalking that led to restraining order in her past. When I read about Alayna’s stalker tendencies I was very much intrigued, I’ve never read anything like it, a heroine with rap sheets for stalking. At first I found it to be entertaining and quite humorous, but as the story progressed I came to feel for her because I can understand that she couldn’t help her addiction.
Hudson Pierce is every woman (ahem, wet) dream. He’s hot, handsome, confident, filthy rich and he oozes sex appeal. He’s an alpha male in every sense of the word. But, Hudson doesn’t know how to love, or rather he doesn’t really understand what love is. He presents Alayna with a proposition; he will pay off her student loans if she agrees to pretend to be his girlfriend, pretend to be in love, so his mother will get off his back about him marrying his childhood friend.
Both Alayna and Hudson have issues, okay, they both have serious issues. They are pure madness and nuts and I really love their characters as an individual and as a couple. Laurelin Paige did a fabulous job portraying the illness of addiction and Alayna’s struggle. I actually felt proud as Alayna fought to better herself and as she rose above the judgments of those around her.
I love the fact that there’s no cliffhanger but it manages to make me want to know more about Alayna and Hudson’s journey toward their own version of happy ending. Their story continues in Found in You (Fixed #2)
I would recommend this if you are a fan of hot, dominant, alpha male. This book is one HOT read, sure to tug on your heart, wet your panties (seriously, you’ll need clean panties, several pairs) and make you swoon. Get ready for a ride you won’t ever want to end.
“I wanted him instantly, a prickle of fixation taking root in my belly – an old familiar feeling. But that I desired him didn’t matter. The expression on his face said that he would have me whether I wanted it or not, that it was inevitable as if it had already happened.”
“I apologize for overwhelming you. That wasn’t my intent. But I want you to know that whether or not you decide to help my situation, I will continue to seduce you. I’m a man who gets what he wants. And I want you.”
“I turned to him and found his gaze absent of pity. Instead it held understanding. More and more I realized that I was special to him because of this unique recognition he saw in me.”
“The magnitude of your importance in my life can’t be put into words.”
“This, precious. This is for real.”
