Title: Fix Me Not
Series: The Fix Series #2
Author: Carey Heywood
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release: September 22, 2017
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.
Y'all. This book was so good! Fix Me Not is the second book in Carey Heywood's The Fix Series. Each book can technically be read as a standalone but I recommend reading the first book in the series before you read this one or there will be some spoilers.
Fix Me Not is Asher's story. I absolutely LOVED him in Fix Her Up and I couldn't wait to dive into his book. Asher is very much a recluse. He lives way out of town on his property where he does his wood work. Asher is tall, dark, and oh so handsome. He very much knows how to use his hands. Asher has a lady that comes in that cleans his house and delivers his mail and groceries. After an accident happens, she is no longer able to do that. Enter her daughter, Paige.
Paige has begrudgingly moved back home. She had everything going for her, she was living the high life, until she wasn't. Now she's stuck living on her mother's couch, having to start all over again. Paige is definitely someone that had to grow on me. I didn't really like her at first. She flat out drove me crazy. She was stuck up and needed to be humbled. Paige is the reason I can't give this book five stars. I was just so annoyed by her that it took away from the story.
Asher and Paige are complete opposites. At first I couldn't possibly see how they would be made for each other. Carey does a great job of slowly growing their relationship. It was very much a hate to lovers type of romance. I really liked that it wasn't instant love and it all flowed so well. There was the perfect amount of banter between Asher and Paige followed by sweet encounters that just make you swoon.
All in all, Carey did a great job with this book. I love her writing style. She does a great job of making everything flow, with just enough angst to keep you engaged. I highly recommend this series if you're looking for a sweet, fun, quick read.

“Here,” Paige says, passing me a water and a plate of fries through my window.
I’m back in the parking lot of the Moose tonight, parked right next to Millie’s Explorer.
“Are you trying to drug me?” I had asked.
She shrugs her slender shoulders. “Consider it a truce.”
I’ve finished all of the fries and am still working on my drink when she returns an hour or so later.
“Shouldn't you be playing with your wood?”
I choke on my water.
“This your idea of a truce?” I ask, once I’m done coughing.
“Humor me,” she says, leaning against my door. “You hired my mom so you wouldn't have to leave your land. Now you're leaving it every day to stalk me. What gives?”
My head jerks back. “I am not stalking you.”
She presses her lips together before a bubble of laughter escapes. “What would you call it?”
I frown partly at her question and more so at the way she's acting. “Why are you being nice to me?”
