[Blog Tour] The Fix Up by Kendall Ryan



From New York Times Bestseller, Kendall Ryan, comes a sexy new standalone novel. 

My tempting, and very alpha friend Sterling Quinn is someone I consider off-limits. It's not just that we're friends, he's also cocky, confident, and British, which means he's a walking aphrodisiac. But lately he's been giving me the look. You know the one. When he thinks I'm not paying attention, and his gaze lingers for too long. And then we start working together, and that's when the sexual tension between us gets so thick, I want to hack through it with a machete. I want to make all these deep feelings I've harbored for him disappear, because there's no way this can end well. The lines between business and pleasure become irrevocably blurred, and I'm stuck between a rock, and Sterling's very, very hard place. Rather than keep a level head about our growing attraction, Sterling wants to go all in, showing me just how explosive we can be together. But I've been around long enough to know that this British bad boy is more than my heart can handle. I'm not about to be cast aside like yesterday's underwear when he's done having fun. Sterling’s never been told no, and he's not about to put his ego aside and play by my rules. But I never thought he'd fight so dirty.

The Fix Up by Kendall Ryan was such a good book and it will have you wanting your own Sterling. It gave me more feels than I expected and Kendall took this book on a whole different direction than I thought. I LOVED that. When authors surprise you it feels good to be lead in a different direction.

When I read the blurb, I felt like it might be a little repetitive. Hitched Volumes 1-3 had the same situation going on so I was a little wary of this. But I was so wrong. It was perfect and it wasn't repetitive. Kendall worked this book. She knew what she was doing and it turned out amazing. I finished it so quick because I couldn't put it down.

Sterling was no at all what I thought. I was a little nervous for this playboy's book. He was one woman after the other in Hitched. His personality was refreshing and sexy. His little British speak really pulled me in. Sterling knew what he wanted. He might have gone about it the wrong way but it had me swooning and rooting for him

Camryn was a force. She was on a mission. She wants to get Sterling married off but during the process Sterling is just too perfect not to fall for. While she is trying to find him a woman to marry, Sterling is swooning Camryn with his hot self. Of course Camryn can't resist that deliciousness. I mean, British, sweet, and mouth that sins?! Yes please. Sterling perfection.

The Fix Up is something you want to read, trust me. Kendall Ryan will have you melting at this British mans feet. Sterling is not someone you expect to fall for but you will fall hard with one word that comes out of his mouth. The way he handles Camryn will have you fanning yourself.

I twist the doorknob, and finding it unlocked, let myself inside. Sterling’s place is compact, but modern and classy. It suits him. After a quick glance around the living space, I spot him on the balcony outside, just beyond the glass doors at the far end of the living room. He’s facing away from me, his hands gripping the railing, his head bowed. My smile from moments ago is gone. Seeing him like this—looking distraught—brings the reality of our situation crashing back. Sterling suddenly turns and we lock eyes. A thousand emotions are revealed in his eyes, but mostly there’s anger. There’s also a sadness in his gaze that I’ve never seen. It’s haunting. I swallow a lump in my throat, wondering what’s going on. “Sterling?” I ask, slowly approaching the balcony. It’s beautiful—plush pillows and twinkling lights, and a chilled bottle of white wine all nestled together in a romantic picnic for two. He lets out a heavy sigh and runs one hand through his hair. “This is beautiful,” I say since he hasn’t spoken, hasn’t even moved from the spot where he’s rooted, and his stony silence is killing me. “Are you okay?” “Just fine,” he says curtly, his gaze looking past me. He doesn’t seem fine. He seems off. Why go through all the effort if he’s just going to act sullen and withdrawn? And what could have possibly changed in the twenty-four hours since we last spoke on the phone? He seemed so excited—like he hadn’t a care in the world. Now it seems he doesn’t want me here. “If this is a bad time, if tonight doesn’t work . . .” I trail off, my voice suddenly shaky. “The meal’s already prepared.” He brushes past me, headed toward the kitchen. Unsure what to do, I follow behind him. He’s acting like an asshole, and I suddenly feel so stupid for getting all done up tonight. I’m not going to stand around and embarrass myself by begging for his attention. “You know what? Never mind. This was a bad idea, anyway. I’ll see myself out.” I turn and head for the front door, anger and rejection dueling inside me. It takes all of three seconds before Sterling’s long strides catch him up to me by the door. His grip around my wrist stops me. “Wait.” I turn and face him. I’m halfway between wanting to flee and staying to hear his explanation. He releases a heavy exhale. “I received a phone call just before you arrived.” With him so near, the combination of his clean soap and his spicy cologne intoxicates me. Memories of our intimate dinner rush back. But apparently tonight is not meant to be a repeat. Waiting to see what he’ll say next, I inhale and hold my breath. When he doesn’t continue, I ask, “Is everything okay?”
