I loved every single thing of The Fixer. I was so excited to dive in after reading the synopsis and it was everything I could have wanted and so much more!
The Fixer (Games People Play #1) by HelenKay Dimon
He’s known only as Wren. A wealthy, dangerously secretive man, he specializes in making problems disappear. A professional fixer, Wren hides a dark past, but his privacy is shattered when Emery Finn seeks him out—and what she wants from him is very personal.
Some people disappear against their will. Emery’s job is to find them and bring closure. Wren is the only person who can help solve Emery’s own personal mystery: the long-ago disappearance of her cousin. Just tracking down the sexy, brooding Wren is difficult enough. Resisting her body’s response to him will prove completely impossible.
Anonymity is essential to Wren’s success yet drawn by Emery’s loyalty and sensuality, he’s pulled out of the shadows. But her digging is getting noticed by the wrong people. And as the clues start to point to someone terrifyingly close, Wren will have to put his haunted past aside to protect the woman he loves.
5 out of 5 stars
When I read the synopsis for this book I totally fell in love and was super excited to read it. Not only did I love it, it surpassed my expectations! It had an excellent storyline with a great feel to it, I was hooked!
Seriously, right from the beginning I was hanging on every word. Since this was romantic suspense, in my head I was expecting intensity but what I got surprised me and I loved it. It had this light, fun vibe happening that had me smiling. Wren and Emery where great characters. They had awesome verbal sparring going on that was challenging and entertaining. One of my favorite things is animosity between characters so this was perfect for me.
I loved Emery so much. I loved how strong she was and her perseverance and dedication. The woman is the definition of determined, it was great. Wren was equally fantastic. Closed off but protective, I loved learning all of his details. I really liked Wren’s history and how it was laid out, keeping me guessing and wanting more. I was on edge of my seat as he opened up. It was really fantastic seeing him grow and step outside of his comfort zone. Both Emery and Wren had amazing chemistry and loved watching it build. It was fun and sweet and passionate (and oh so hot!).
The story involving Emery's past was great too. I loved all the suspense and the challenge that it brought to their growing relationship. While I did think the story story was light in a fun, witty, verbally combative way, there was a good bit of tension too as the story unfolds and all the pieces come together. It was a really solid story and I thought the writing was excellent. Really great details and great pace, it flowed nicely. I was excited while reading and couldn't turn the page fast enough.
I loved Wren’s friend Garrett and the relationship they had. Anything that has to do with manly friendships and male bonding I'm a big fan of and I loved everything I got. I am just so impressed and excited for more. This was a fantastic introduction to the series and I love all the possibilities that could come next. Sign me up for the next story!
This was great romantic suspense, not only that, it was just fun and sexy with intriguing characters, solid storyline, and a fantastic build. Frankly, the lighter vibe was refreshing! It was everything I could have asked for.
