“Here,” Paige says, passing me a water and a plate of fries through my window.
I’m back in the parking lot of the Moose tonight, parked right next to Millie’s Explorer.
“Are you trying to drug me?” I had asked.
She shrugs her slender shoulders. “Consider it a truce.”
I’ve finished all of the fries and am still working on my drink when she returns an hour or so later.
“Shouldn’t you be playing with your wood?”
I choke on my water.
“This your idea of a truce?” I ask, once I’m done coughing.
“Humor me,” she says, leaning against my door. “You hired my mom so you wouldn’t have to leave your land. Now you’re leaving it every day to stalk me. What gives?”
My head jerks back. “I am not stalking you.”
She presses her lips together before a bubble of laughter escapes. “What would you call it?”
I frown partly at her question and more so at the way she’s acting. “Why are you being nice to me?”

“…exquisitely written and is a definite MUST READ!! 5 stars!” – FunUnderTheCovers
“..Gah! I loved it! It is one of my top favorites of the year.” – Garden of REden
This is the second book in The Fix Series. I just love it. I think this book is just as good as the first story. Picking up where the first book left off, Noah and Finley are engaged to be married. This book however focuses on his brother Asher. Asher is a reclusive person. He prefers to be alone and lives on land alone. He has a house keeper who buys his groceries and brings his mail to him, so he never leaves home.
One day Asher’s house keeper Millie falls and he has to rush her to the hospital. She has him call her daughter to meet them there. When her daughter arrives, she is rude and Asher immediately dislikes her and passes judgement.
Paige is down on her luck. Once a big time event planner in New York, now living on her mom’s sofa. She has lost her business, is broke and her ex friend took her boyfriend. When her mom’s fall has her put in a cast, she is forced to work for the perfect Asher that her mom praises.
When Paige shows up at Asher’s house to clean, drop the mail and groceries, Asher is stunned. He makes a point of telling her he does not want her there. She doesn’t want to be there but her mom is making her. Will Asher be able to push aside his dislike of Paige? Will Paige ever trust anyone or will she run when she gets the money saved up?
In this story you see more of the same characters, but the author introduces some new ones and develops Asher more. Asher is a very complex person. I feel he has Aspergers Syndrome, with the way the author has written his character. He tenses when people touch him or show him attention. He does not like attention and prefers to focus on his work and being alone on his land.
When Paige comes crashing into his life it is a big adjustment to let her in, not just for him but for her as well. She is a stubborn individual. She is determined to move on and find a fresh new start in life. She has no money, friends and her self-esteem is shot. I love watching these characters develop and work through their difficulties.
In this book she leaves an opening for another story, by introducing a little more background into Abby. I am excited to see where her story goes. If you are looking for a cozy, yet sexy read this is the book for you. It has it all, from comedy and sweet romance to hot steamy sex. I highly recommend this series and this book.

OMG!!! This book was funny as hell!!! I mean it. I have not read a book that made me laugh as hard as this book did in forever. This book had me laughing so hard, tears and rolling on the floor were involved, not to mention people staring at the crazy chic laying on the floor holding her sides laughing. Ok! Ok! I think you get it. The book is funny. Now to the review…..
The story starts off with Delia breaking up with her boyfriend, since the friend zone is the best place for them. Then she gets a text from a phone number that she does not recognize, confirming a lunch date. Since her brother is always losing his phone she assumes the text is him. WRONG!
Zach is confused who is texting him and calls the person. When a girl answers the phone he is stumped. After the phone conversation with a sassy snarky chic, which he finds entertaining and funny, he keeps texting her.
Delia and Zach continue to text back and forth everyday. They enjoy the banter and become fast friends. Delia is afraid of another relationship failure and when Zach asks to meet she freezes. Can Delia take the next step and meet face to face or will she be too afraid? He could be an ugly ax murderer.
Again and I can’t stress this enough, this book is funny as shit. There was never a dull moment. Delia is sassy, smart and snarky. Zach is sexy, hot and nerdy. Did I mention I love books about nerd romance. *wink wink* I love the sexy nerd references. There was a WTF moment, that I can’t tell you about, but it will have you cursing and disappointed.
I love the characters in this book. Each person having a unique personality or quality that adds to the story. They are alluring and funny. You get caught up in them and can’t stop reading.
Don’t let me forget to mention the star of the book Marshmallow. He is so sweet and adorable. He will have you wrapped up in his cuteness. You will see what I am talking about when you read the book.
I mean it, you have to read this book. You will not regret it. Just be sure you are alone or you may end up embarrassing yourself. I highly recommend this book. It is highly entertaining and a fun read. I think I may have to read it a second time.
