When my eARC popped up on my Kindle App, I jumped right in even though I should have been sleeping. And man, Sterling's story does not disappoint. If I liked Noah from the Hitched books, I loved Sterling. It's probably because he's British. But I definitely appreciate the author's penchant for writing guys who know they like the girl from the (almost) get-go. It's a nice change from a lot of the other romance novels out there.
But where I really liked Sterling, because why wouldn't I?, I had more than a few issues with Camryn annoyed me, a little more than I would have liked. In the beginning, she was fine, but when her emotions start running away from her in the middle of the brilliant (please note my sarcasm) idea of having a "speed dating meets The Bachelor" (as Sterling puts it), I lose my patience with her. Due to her inability to control her emotions, she lets someone through that leads to her being even more upset than necessary. I know that romantic comedies rely on errors such as that, but these just seem so unprofessional that it's hard for me to believe it wasn't out of character for her.
Apart from that one main episode, I totally bought their relationship, loved that we got to see Noah and Olivia helping both sides out, and their dates were swoon worthy. And the sex was hot (duh).
About the Book
Title: The Fix-Up
Author: Kendall Ryan
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Everafter Romance
Publication Date: October 11, 2016
From New York Times bestselling 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.
*This is a spin-off from the HITCHED series, but can be read as a standalone.
