NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR LAURELIN PAIGE'S first book in THE FIXED TRILOGY garnered these pre-publication reviews: "This book blew me away." - Emma Hart, NY Times Bestselling author of The Love Game "Read it in an air-conditioned room or turn on the fan--it. is. HOT." - Melanie Harlow, author of Speak Easy "Ok wow breathe... This book was absolutely amazing." - Maria "Where to begin ????? WOW !!! Absolutely-Freaking-Amazingly-Awesome." - Tammy "Hudson and Alayna...threatened to melt my Kindle EVERY TIME THEY WERE TOGETHER!" - Dianne Fixed on You is the first book in a trilogy but ends without a cliffhanger. Due to mature material, it is recommended for ages 17+. 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.
Biografía del autor
Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there's kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn't seem to complain, however. When she isn't reading or writing sexy stories, she's probably singing, watching Mad Men and the Walking Dead, or dreaming of Adam Levine. She is represented by Bob Diforio of D4EO Literary Agency.

When Hudson propose an offer to pay off her debts in exchange for her to pose as his fake girlfriend in order to escape an impending marriage arranged by his mother, Alayna took up the offer to get herself out of her financial woes.
But what she didn't bargain for is the sexual charged chemistry between them. What she didn't bargain for is to get caught up in the whirlwind tornado that is Hudson Pierce. And what she certainly didn't bargain for is to fall in love with a man who is not capable of love and with a whole lot of secrets.
Ms. Paige carefully keeps her readers on their toes with this one and I seriously cannot wait to continue reading the series to know what Hudson is hiding. This book is a definite winner!
The main heroine, Alayna, is supposed to be finished with college, but the way she is written she could easily be only 13 or 14 years old. She's whiny and immature in her dialogue. She has several trust and stalking issue switch she continues even after support group and a restraining order from previous lover. She was told when accepting the proposition from Hudson that they would only be pretending to have a relationship and she pushes forward with other intention.
The hero is one dimensional and uninteresting. Sure he's describe and the hottest guy she's ever seen, but he has no real character development. His motivation for his interest in the heroine is rather laughable.
His mother is a flake and acts more like she's in love with her son rather than that of a parental figure. The dialogue between Hudson and his mother reflects that she felt more than a mothers love.. The father was alienated and lost in the struggles to profile the mother.
The plot is spotty and unfinished. Plot holes abound. It feels like the author rushes through and skips over things that should be important. Then slogs and drags out unimportant details. I can only imagine that this book was not read through or edited at all.
There's supposed to be 2 more books in this series. Yeah, I won't be reading them. This one was torture enough.
Alayna "Laynie" Withers has just graduated from NYU's Business School with her MBA. She works as a bartender in a nightclub with hopes to work her way up to becoming a part-owner of the club. She meets an incredibly sexy, arrogant/confident Hudson Pierce who has just purchased her nightclub.
He propositions her to be his pretend girlfriend in order to get his suffocating mother off of his back.
This book takes them through their pretend relationship that eventually ends up to be a real relationship.
Throughout the book, various issues drop from the sky. Both of them have emotional and clinical challenges. Laynie has major fixation issues - has actually had a restraining order that was put on her. She dates, then becomes obsessed by the relationship. She has been and is still in therapy and working on these issues.
Hudson has his own set of issues that he has been working on as well (do not want to spoil it here).
Other issues include childhood friend - is she a friend, or does she want Hudson to herself.
Crazy mean socialite mother.
In addition to their own issues (which resulted from loss of love from parent(s)), there are a host of other characters that add to the spice of this story. Ex-girlfriends, ex-boyfriends, catty, pretentious and snobby people, cold-hearted mother, sweet sister, flirty dad, etc. They are all unique and interesting.
But overall, I could only give this book 3 stars. I loved the IDEA of the plot. Two people who are struggling to overcome their clinical challenges. But I really didn't find myself rooting for either one of them.
Yes - Laynie has an overprotective, angry big brother. But he was forced to raise her since the death of their parents. He is paying for her apartment! He has had to put up with her obsessive behavior for a very long time! She is a bartender at a nightclub with an MBA. He is trying to push her to get a better paying job instead of leaning on him so much. There really isn't anything wrong with that. But she freaks out on him and then shuts him out??? That seems so spoiled and bratty to me. It's not cheap to rent an apartment in NYC. Why is she acting like he is being selfish - she needs to re-evaluate her attitude.
And Hudson...he is supposed to be 27 or 28 years old and President of a billion dollar corporation? Are you kidding me. I know he's the son of the previous President. yes - there are one or two 'kids' in silicon valley that are running billion dollar companies- but they are ones that came out of no where that grew really quickly. This is an old established company. It's like having a kid take over Apple or Microsoft. Also, he speaks like a 60 year old man. Stilted. He also kept calling Laynie 'precious'. All I could hear was Gollum's hissy voice (from The Hobbit) saying "precioussssss" over and over again. Ugh.
An example of how stilted Hudson speaks : Laynie has a bit of a lapse in her stalking and finally tells him that he never responded to her text (the first she ever sent to him...). It's a big emotional moment for Laynie since she is putting herself out there emotionally. And his response? "I didn't realize it was important to you. I'll make a better effort to respond in the future." And that was his super sweet emotional response. Huh? Stilted.
I loved how Laynie stands up for herself with his mother and other judgmental people.
The sex scenes are super steamy hot. Quite a few of them as well.
I just can't do three books of this. Since I didn't love the characters, I didn't want to invest myself in three books of this angst.
She stresses too much over their relationship (does he love me? is he pretending to like me? is he telling the truth? am I worth it? did he sleep with her?) Her personality changes so much, I was getting whip lash. one moment she is cocky and telling his mother off - the next she is crying because she thinks he doesn't want to sleep with her. She can be confused, but the tears come really quickly. If she is going to be strong, then be strong.
Hudson does something kinda rude to her towards the end of the book. But he doesn't profusely apologize, nor does she tell him what he SHOULD have done. Leave a very nice note. But the way he did it was rude and hurtful. And yet he gets away with it? Ugh. It was annoying.
He is supposed to be super rich sexy alpha-male, but it wasn't sexy to me.
Laynie is super smart - why didn't she find herself an amazing internship with companies that run nightclubs or help to build them etc. Why was bar tending her only option? She is selling herself short. I think she is close in age to Hudson, yet she acts 10 times younger with questioning her business ethics and challenges when he makes suggestions to her.
At one point she actually helps him with something - if she is that smart (can pick up someone's business productions from one spreadsheet), then she is brilliant and that made me wonder again - why is she so unsure of herself?
Again, there were too many issues left unresolved for this to be a HEA - stand alone book.
I felt like Laynie still didn't have enough resolved to be on her own. Nor ready to start a real relationship with a dominant man like Hudson.
I really wanted to like this book more.
I can see how people liked this book. But I just couldn't over the issues I listed above.
