Book Review: Fix Her Up by Carey Heywood

Fix Her Up

by Carey Heywood

If Finley Reeves is an expert at anything, it’s making mistakes. She proved this true by falling for and marrying the wrong man. Ten years later all she has to show for it is a divorce and a broken heart.

Needing not only to get away, but also to start over somewhere new, she buys a fixer-upper that’s one step away from being condemned. Deciding to tackle this project alone might be her biggest mistake of all.

That is, until Noah Thompson shows up at her front door like a knight in a shining tool belt. Determined she doesn’t need any help she pushes him away until he makes her an offer she’d be crazy to refuse.

A fun & sexy Contemporary Romance (age 17+) 

My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:

I was expecting her husband to be there, but his presence may have interrupted her attempts to put her hand in my pants. I might not have many rules when it comes to the women I see, but not being married is one of them.

He grins at me before lifting the hem of his shirt to wipe my snot from his face. I sneezed all over the hot guy buying condoms at the convenience store. 

I try not to look at him anymore but it’s impossible. He’s too attractive, it would be a disservice not to.

I’m more excited than I care to admit that I’m going to get to see Noah’s place. Especially since this visit was a spur of the moment one. When you know company is coming, you have time to clean up and hide your vibrators, or whatever stuff a guy would hide.

‘We need to talk about what just happened.’  I hold my head in my hand. ‘Like a performance evaluation? I say we both earned a ten out of ten… Need a replay?’

To put it mildly, he’s seriously hot. As in, off the grid if zombies took over the world you’d want him in your bed – er, by your side – kind of hot.


My Review:

The first thing I noticed about this adorable book was the clever humor, a few paragraphs in and I was already comfortable, engaged, and invested.  Written in my favorite dual POV, the plot was relevant, easy to follow, and pleasantly entertaining.  The storyline was based in New Hampshire, which is one of the few states I have never visited, and provided a sweet and slow-burn love story between adorable and highly likable characters who tugged at my heartstrings and held my attention.  This was my virgin voyage with Ms. Heywood but I enjoyed sailing with her so much, I plan to make her a habit.
