Olivia Beckett’s once-charmed life is falling apart. Her family is about to lose everything, and she has almost no chance of continuing her college education. She can’t even seek solace from her high school sweetheart. He’s changed. She doesn’t recognize the boy she used to know— his violent behavior is escalating and it scares the hell out of her. Her whole world is crumbling, and she has no one to turn to……
Sebastian “Bash” McDaniels is an up and comer in the boxing world working nights at the local college bar until he can land the fight of his dreams that will get him the hell out of Boston and away from his family’s tragic past. He’s weeks from his goal when Olivia Beckett comes tumbling into his life in a flash of silky dark hair and haunted eyes. When he saves her from a potentially brutal beating, they begin to grow close, but Olivia’s ex isn’t ready to let her go so easily.
Bash can’t bring himself to walk away, but fixing Olivia just might leave him broken…
I can’t say much about this story without giving too much away, but I will try my hardest to paint a clear picture for you on why you should consider reading it.
Both Bash and Olivia were intriguing characters with a complex side to them. I believe that Bash has layers that we’ve yet to see and I can’t wait to experience his whole story. As for Olivia, I’ll admit that it took a couple more pages for me to connect to her, but thankfully as the story progressed and she allowed her true self to come to the surface I came to understand her better.
– Connection and Chemistry
Bash and Olivia’s initial connection was subtle, but there nonetheless. However, as the story started gaining momentum and they started interacting in a more significant manner I saw how their connection was growing and deepening. Of course, their chemistry was instantly palpable. But again, it ran under the surface–always present, intense-up. And when all that pent-up lust was unleashed? HOT, HOT, HOT!
I’m sure there’s going to be a lot more of their connection developing and shinning through as their story continues but Christine Bell did a great job of bringing it to the page in this installment.
– Overall story
Christine Bell did an amazing job in drawing me into the story. Instantly, I was curious to see what was in store for Olivia. And once Bash came into the picture I couldn’t help but be intrigued by his story as well. By her use of dual POV and clear transitions, Christine Bell made sure that I could easily understand where each character was coming from. I enjoyed getting to know some of their story and now that I’ve invested myself in the outcome of what has developed between them, I can’t wait for the next installment.
With a mix of emotions, intriguing twists and turns plus sizzling chemistry between two complex characters, Fix You was a great start to a series. One that packed a punch with only 70+ pages of content. I can’t wait for more!
