The Fix-Up by Kendall Ryan - Review & Excerpt Tour

banner-available-now

the-fix-up-kendall-ryanFrom 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.

Reese's Reviews:
The Fix Up was amazing. I really enjoyed this story a whole bunch. Kendall Ryan’s writing was new to me before this book, but I will definitely be adding her to my must read list.

Sterling Quinn has the perfect life until one of his relatives passes away and he’s forced to get married or lose out on millions of dollars. He has six months to find a woman and get married so he can get the money to take care of his mother. Sadly, Sterling is a divorce lawyer whose father left his mother when she got sick and has since lost all hope in love. When his team hires Camryn the only girl Sterling has wanted to spend more than one night with, they both know they’re in trouble.

Camryn has had the hots for Sterling and his sexy British accent since the night of her best friend’s wedding. When they’re both thrown together to work on a way to get Sterling married off their attraction to one another makes things very difficult.

I loved this book for a couple big reasons. One the writing is beyond amazing. Super sweet and it flows. The characters all have depth and there’s an actual story to go along with the hot and steamy which is just good writing. I honestly could not put this book down.

Second the characters. They were realistic and believable and likeable. Camryn is the sweetest character ever. She does everything she can to be understanding and sweet to all her friends. I love how she stands up for herself in this book to her friends even though that’s so difficult to do. Sterling is super sweet as well. He has lots of gestures while trying to woo Camryn to fall in love with him. Both characters were also super funny. Although their love of alcohol was a bit excessive but whatever.

The Fix Up also had the characters doing actual stuff besides having sex together. They went on dates, and had mini fights that weren’t fixed through sex and they got to know each other. Their dates were so cute too and I loved the scene where Sterling is sprucing up his apartment for Camryn to see.

Well if you couldn’t tell I really enjoyed The Fix Up. Kendall Ryan is amazing. I am definitely going to be checking out her books sometime when I’m not beyond poor. If you haven’t already go check this book out ASAP, it’s awesome.

EXCERPT:
I twist the doorknob, and finding it unlocked, let myself inside.

Sterling’s place is compact, but modern and classy. It suits him. After a quick glance around the living space, I spot him on the balcony outside, just beyond the glass doors at the far end of the living room. He’s facing away from me, his hands gripping the railing, his head bowed.

My smile from moments ago is gone. Seeing him like this—looking distraught—brings the reality of our situation crashing back.

Sterling suddenly turns and we lock eyes. A thousand emotions are revealed in his eyes, but mostly there’s anger. There’s also a sadness in his gaze that I’ve never seen. It’s haunting.

I swallow a lump in my throat, wondering what’s going on.

“Sterling?” I ask, slowly approaching the balcony.

It’s beautiful—plush pillows and twinkling lights, and a chilled bottle of white wine all nestled together in a romantic picnic for two.

He lets out a heavy sigh and runs one hand through his hair.

“This is beautiful,” I say since he hasn’t spoken, hasn’t even moved from the spot where he’s rooted, and his stony silence is killing me. “Are you okay?”

“Just fine,” he says curtly, his gaze looking past me.

He doesn’t seem fine. He seems off. Why go through all the effort if he’s just going to act sullen and withdrawn?

And what could have possibly changed in the twenty-four hours since we last spoke on the phone? He seemed so excited—like he hadn’t a care in the world. Now it seems he doesn’t want me here.

“If this is a bad time, if tonight doesn’t work . . .” I trail off, my voice suddenly shaky.

“The meal’s already prepared.” He brushes past me, headed toward the kitchen.

Unsure what to do, I follow behind him.

He’s acting like an asshole, and I suddenly feel so stupid for getting all done up tonight. I’m not going to stand around and embarrass myself by begging for his attention.

“You know what? Never mind. This was a bad idea, anyway. I’ll see myself out.” I turn and head for the front door, anger and rejection dueling inside me.

It takes all of three seconds before Sterling’s long strides catch him up to me by the door. His grip around my wrist stops me. “Wait.”

I turn and face him. I’m halfway between wanting to flee and staying to hear his explanation.

He releases a heavy exhale. “I received a phone call just before you arrived.”

With him so near, the combination of his clean soap and his spicy cologne intoxicates me. Memories of our intimate dinner rush back. But apparently tonight is not meant to be a repeat. Waiting to see what he’ll say next, I inhale and hold my breath.

When he doesn’t continue, I ask, “Is everything okay?”
