WHY I READ IT
I loved the first book in the series and wanted to know more about Aiden.
WHAT I RATED IT
WHAT IT’S ABOUT
Paige Sullivan’s life is a train wreck. In a matter of months she lost her business, her swanky apartment, and her big city life. Now she’s stuck in Nowhere, New Hampshire, sleeping on her mom’s couch. If that wasn’t bad enough, she’s forced to do odd jobs for money. She has a plan though, and once she’s saved enough, she’s out of there. That is, as long as she doesn’t murder her sexy new employer first.
Asher Thompson is the ruggedly handsome hermit of the Thompson clan. Tall, ridiculously sexy despite his beard, and annoyingly aloof, his main concern is his privacy. He fills his days with his work as a carpenter and the peaceful solitude of his lake house. A peaceful solitude that vanished the moment Paige Sullivan stormed into his life, hell-bent on driving him crazy.
The problem is, opposites attract and each time they cross paths she works her way further under his skin.
This book! THIS BOOK! I have to admit. I was primed. I was a big Asher fan while reading Fix Her Up. Broody carpenter, good with his hands, and prefers to be alone? You just know there’s a good story there…
So, going in, I was prepared to love Asher. I just wasn’t prepared to want to head up to New Hampshire, find Asher, and make him my own (hopefully, my husband doesn’t read this.) He was book boyfriend perfection. There wasn’t a time that man didn’t open his mouth that I didn’t turn into a puddle of goo.
“It’s startling how intensely I mean those words. As if the concept of existing without her was impossible.”
Asher might have been my favorite part of the book, but that doesn’t mean that I didn’t love Paige because I did! Paige embodied everything I look for in a heroine. She had her demons, but she was still strong and willing to work her behind off to get what she wanted. I loved her take-no-crap approach to Asher, and to the knockdowns life kept tossing her way.
Fix Me Not is a GORGEOUS love story. I read this book with a smile on my face throughout the entire book. It gives us two people who might be viewed by others as imperfect, be perfect together. Gah! I loved it! It is one of my top favorites of the year.
