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. And then we start working together, and 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 was a story I wanted to read from the time we meet Sterling and Cami in the Hitched trilogy. I was a little disappointed with the execution of the how these two ended up together. The blurb is not telling the complete truth. Cami and Sterling are not what I would call friends when this book began. They start hanging out a lot when Cami is hired to find a bride for Sterling. I loved how Cami rejected a few great choices for silly reasons because he didn't want Sterling to marry any of them. For me the book had plenty of potential, but it didn't work out for me as much as I had hoped it would. I didn't fell for Sterling like I did with the other heroes in Kendall Ryan's books. I liked that Cami didn't forgive the person who betrayed her. She had some backbone and dignity.
I like a lot Kendall Ryan's writing and I plan to continue reading her books even if The fix up wasn't a complete hit for me. It had some funny moments and the romance was almost good. The good thing is that this book can be read as stand alone even if it's a spin off from the Hitched series. Olivia and Noah appear but they are not the focus.
