Title: Fixed On You
Series: Fixed #1
Author: Laurelin Paige
Publication Date: June 23, 2013
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.
I had had Fixed on You sitting on my Kindle for a loooong time waiting to be read before the opportunity to join this blog tour came up.
Why the heck did I leave it so long to read it for?!?!?!
Alayna - Laynie - has graduated college with an MBA, is being pressured by her brother to get a "real" job. She loves her job bartending and has big ideas for the the bar she works at.
Enter the "suit". From the minute he walks into the bar, Laynie is drawn.
Hudson Pierce (sigh) is the suit... and what a suit!!
When Hudson makes an offer to Alayna that she can't refuse, things get interesting. All she needs to do is pretend to be his "fake girlfriend".
The lines between their real and fake relationship start to get blurry, and things really start to heat up.
I loved Laynie and Hudson. They are one hot, sexy mess! And it was great to watch their relationship bloom and grow. They have a lot more in common than they would ever have thought. They both have dramas in their lives ~~ pretty much all in the form of family ~~ but it was great to watch them reach out to each other when they needed help rather than fall back into their old habits.
Add to the mix Laynie's brother - what a douche - and Hudson's mother. Ugh, really did not like them at all. Then there is Celia, Hudson's oldest friend, and the woman his mother expects him to marry. She is just an extra complication and an extra twist of the knife in Laynie's heart.
But I did love the rest of Hudson's family. His sister Mira and his father are great! They help give us perspective into how Hudson became the man he is today.
Although the premise of the sexy-billionaire-who-is-incapable-of-love-meets-normal-girl-who-turns-his-world-upside-down is not new in the book world, Fixed on You felt different. Hudson felt more "normal" than those other billionaires we read about.
But don't take "normal" to read "boring". Alayna and Hudson are anything but normal. Get them together in a room and the air becomes almost combusitble with sexual tension. And don't get me started on the sexy times! Hot Hot Hot!!
Although there is sequel to Fixed on You, it could be read as a stand alone.
Now, off to get started on the next books, Found In You and Forever In You
