Publisher's Summary

British bad boy Sterling Quinn needs a wife. After his great-grandfather, the former prince something or another, passes and leaves him millions, he's shocked to discover the massive inheritance has a clause - he needs to clean up his image and be married in order to receive his millions.
When word gets out that this hottie has royal blood running through his veins, and is on the prowl for Mrs. Right, crazy ex-girlfriends, school-yard crushes, and thousands of other hopeful women flock to his doorstep.
What he needs is a manager to help him sort through the clutter.
Enter Camryn Palmer, PR executive. Camryn has had a front row seat to her friend Sterling's revolving-door of a love-life for years. But when she's hired to clean up his image and manage the hordes of women cruising through his bedroom door, she's stuck between a rock and a hard place. Literally.
Yes, she has secret fantasies about being the one to keep his bed warm - what woman doesn't? He's sinfully attractive, and she wants to kiss that cocky English accent right off his lips, but she's got a job to do. She's a professional through and through, and besides, an arranged marriage could never be a happy one. Right?

A HOT MESS!

What disappointed you about The Fix Up?

The love story between Cami and Sterling had potential but the premise was too scattered, the plot was under developed and the family relationships and friendships were unexplored. I didn't understand the how's and why's of Sterling being the sole beneficiary of his great grandfather. Who hires a PR person to become a matchmaker? And the "big" matchmaking event was the biggest joke of all -- an employee becomes a potential on the day of the event just like that when there was a screening process that narrowed down the potentials, an ex-girlfriend just waltzes in and the coordinator of the event just walks out in the middle of the event. The whole thing was anything but professional. The female narrator, Ava Erickson, sounds like a teenager which added to the juvenile feel of the story. It was very difficult to finish listening to the end.


What was most disappointing about Kendall Ryan’s story?

I couldn't connect with any of the characters. I liked the relationship between Anna and Cami -- friends since elementary school -- but this lifelong relationship was just blown up with no real explanation or afterthought.


Would you listen to another book narrated by Ava Erickson and John Lange ?

I have listened to several books narrated by Ava Erickson and because her voice sounds like a teenager with braces, it can be difficult to get beyond that. I think her voice is better suited for much younger characters. I will listen if the story is good. John Lange is the only reason I finished this book -- his voice saved an otherwise unlistenable story.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was very disappointed and the few sex scenes did not make up for the complete mess of this book.


Any additional comments?

This book could have been so much better with a decent editor -- it had so much potential.

A Sweet and Sexy Friends to Lovers Romance

A very charming and low angst friends to lovers romance.
The story was very addicting and flowed perfectly.
I loved the characters. Both were very likable and the drama between the two was low and the chemistry was high.
This is one of those great Sunday afternoon reads. The story was light-hearted and sweet. There were some moments of heartache or questionability on what would happen next but definitely nothing to get your panties in a knot. :-)
I truly enjoyed both narrators. They were honestly amazing. They both told the story with just the right amount of emotion and passion.
Sterling had the sexiest British accent and was so alpha male when it came to wanting Camryn. John Lange really made Sterlings character come alive!! Ava Erickson was brilliant! I loved her voice and the way she portrayed Camryn. She made Camryn come across as pure and sweet which is hard to find with female narrators in my opinion, so I highly applaud her.
This British bad boy and his PR Executive learn what it's like to be between a rock and a hard place and its was extremely enjoyable getting to experience their journey at overcoming their obstacles to get to their happily ever after!!
A Great Read that I highly recommend to all my fellow romance readers!!
