"This book blew me away." --Emma Hart, New York 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
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.
"Fixed on You (Fixed, #1)" Reviews
"...you’re looking for something temporary. Something fun to play with.” I leaned even closer to deliver my punch line—the one that would deter even the horniest of men. “And I get attached.” I stood back up to my full height so I could take in his reaction. “Now doesn’t that just scare you shitless?”
I’d expected to see panic flash through his face. Instead, I saw a flicker of amusement. “You, Alayna Withers, do anything but scare me.”
Alayna is one of my most favourite girls and this is one of my favourite romance series.
Alayna is different. She is definitely not like the rest of the main female characters in the romance novels. She is NOT normal. She is not stupid. Some people may say that she is crazy. But she is just extraordinary and unique. She knows what she wants, she knows how this will end up and she stays away.
“I’m going to rock your world”
In this story I really preferred the female character and I was at her side supporting her all the way, while I wanted to punch Hudson's face and make him bleed from the first time we met him in book 1 until the last page in book 3 -although, book 3 is another story, full of twists.
Alanea is a survivor. She has her personal psychological problems like obsession with old boyfriends and she will possibly be obsessed with any future boyfriends. She also has low self esteem. They had press charges against her in the past and now she has been under restricting order. She fights against her obsessions and her herself. She wins so far. She has decided that she will never be obsessed again with anybody. She will never fall in love. Only sex, she will never give heart and soul.
On the other hand there is Hudson, a rich playboy who is a maestro in breaking hearts. Because he is a sociopath. He knows it. Everybody knows it. He has had professional help about this problem. He admits it to Alanea. At the same time he has a proposition for her. It is simple:
“What exactly would you want me to do?”
“Pretend we’re a couple. I’d invite you to several gatherings where my mother would see us together. I’d expect you to hang on my arm and behave as though we’re madly in love.”
“And that’s all?”
That way his family will leave him and in return he will pay all Alayna's student loans. Moreover he warns her that he hurts people and he is incapable of loving anybody.
Alayna needs the money and she also likes what she sees and so she agrees. It is only a game after all and plain sex. Nobody will get hurt. She has made a promise to herself that she will never fall in love.
A guy who cannot love and a girl who always loves too much, more than she should.
This is the recipe for lots of angst.
“No romance? I can do that.”
Hudson leaned back on the front of his desk again. He raised a brow, amusement in his eyes. “Are you also incapable of love?”
I met his gaze and ignored the little voice in my head telling me to run. “No, just the opposite. I love too much. Keeping love out of the equation is a very good thing.”
“Good. No love.”
And then the lies begin and the secrets. And then more lies and more secrets and more lies on top of the lies.
I admit that there is a happy ending in the book. Everybody is happy. A brand new beginning for everyone. But then you already know there is a second book. And your stomach hurts a bit because you have a really bad feeling about the things that will follow...Hudson is still around after all.
“We’re really doing this, aren’t we? Moving forward.”
★★★★★! Fixed on You, book 1 of 4. Epic whirlwind saga as the Hudson Alexander Pierce sweeps biz grad of her feet into a world of excess, lies, deceit & betrayals!
Books in Fixed series should be read in order:
Book 1-3: Fixed Trilogy
Book 1: Fixed on YouBook 4: Hudson - Hudson’s POV
Book 2: Found in You
Book 3: Forever with You
Alayna Wither, Laynie has come a long way from stalking men in the wake of losing her parents in a tragic accident. But it’s a daily struggle. Imagine her dilemma when larger-than-life, heir and business icon Hudson Alexander Pierce flirts with her at the bar while she works.
Then he tempts her with an indecent business proposition that gives her full access to the man, his time, his attention, his body… Much of the story follows their arrangement from fuck-buddies and beyond.
Both are flawed and in many ways broken, more to unfold with story. As they get fixated on each other the world around them plots to keep them apart; Secrets, lies, deceit and betrayal yet their biggest obstacles will always come from within…
Hudson Alexander Pierce had me at hello. Seven words to describe Hudson: secretive, conflicted, complex, broke, flawed, possessive, commanding, private and larger-than-life.
Though Hudson swept me off my feet, Alayna Wither, Laynie, in many ways with her flawed, broken, humble, endearing and candid ways carried the story.
Fixed Trilogy, told from Alayna’s POV, is journey of self-reflection and growth for both Hudson and Alayna. I loved how they both remained true to their faults. The integral plot with many twists and turns kept me on my toes until the very end. Epilogue sorted out the last pieces. Up next, book 4, Hudson their story from Hudson’s POV.
Brilliant story-telling! Excellent plot! Mind-blowing sex! To-die-for hero! Favorite heroine shelf! Epic read!

One word ladies....Hudson!!! Hudson -panty sizzler- Pierce. He is absolutely delectable. Sexy, rich, dominating, swoon worthy, arrogant, damaged, fanfuckingtastic. He's sex on a stick. That's what he is! He oozes manly yumminess! I didn't just love this book, I freaking ADORED and DEVOURED it. It wasn't too angsty, overly dramatic or intense. It was just perfect. It took you away to that "happy place" and kept you there and when it was over you were screaming, NO, NO, NO, **waving your kindle in the air** this can't, just can't be over..whyyyyyy! I NEED MORE!!! ** Insert dramatic face** He's what I'd call my perfect book husband. This is the man you dream and fantasize about. He makes every page on your eReader sizzle. It’s a no brainer 5 star read for me. There's not one single damn thing I'd change. Not one. It was captivating, steamy and made my little heart thump, thump, thump. I love being whisked away by a rich, damaged, sexy alpha male while being seduced one delicious, scrumptious word at a time. I think I honestly became Laynie when I read this..no joke. It was a complete possession...hahaha! Ok, ok I'm getting a bit melodramatic but I can't help it. This book owned me when I read it. It's been awhile since I've read a book as hot as Damien Stark, Gideon Cross or Bennett Ryan. A book that just tantalizes and teases every single part of you. I love these kinds of reads. I want to escape in the pages and leave all my worries, stresses and day to day troubles behind. This book did that. It took me away from my everyday life and made me NEVER want to return.
Laynie is a very damaged girl. She has some stalker tendencies **insert smirk** , which I found very in endearing. Maybe that makes me insane, but this girl has major family issues and the way she deals with them is by latching on to men. That has earned her quite a bit of trouble in the past. She works at a bar and after counseling she is pretty much walking the straight and narrow. Laynie has her sights set on a management position at The Sky Launch bar and is working her way up to the top. David her current hook up and boss is Laynie’s ticket to what she thinks she wants BUT the bar is sold to a new owner and Laynie’s chance to get that promotion might be a little delayed.
Hudson Pierce is the new owner of The Sky Launch bar. A wealthy, arrogant and sexy businessman, he has his eyes set on Laynie and it’s a little more than meets the eye. Hudson is a man who ALWAYS, and I mean ALWAYS get what he wants. And this time he needs Laynie to do a job for him. It’s not your typical proposition but comes at the perfect time for Laynie because the life she’s worked hard to build is slowly fizzling away. With an offer too good to refuse and a sexual chemistry too intense to deny Laynie says YES to a proposal that is SURE to change her life.
Together Hudson and Laynie are SCORCHING. The sexual tension they ooze is palpable. This book is FUN, ENJOYABLE and DAMN SEXY. The best part is that Laynie and Hudson are both fantastic characters. Laynie is definitely a lovable, sweet girl. One that I fell in love with. I didn't just love this book because of Huds...No, I loved it because Laynie was a bad ass chick too. She made me feel for her, connect to her and her issues. I loved being in her mind, listening to her thoughts and experiencing her feelings for Huds. The characters are AMAZING. Really they both rocked.
Hudson...Well I told you above! He is EVERYTHING you could want. I love a billionaire, alpha male that takes what he wants and asks questions later. That is my perfect man and Hudson filled every trait.
I would recommend this if you are a fan of Beautiful Bastard, Bared to You and Release Me. This book is in the same category. It’s one HOT read, sure to tug on your heart, wet your panties **wink wink** and make you swoon. Get ready for a ride you won’t EVER want to end.
