From New York Times best-selling author Laurelin Paige, book 1 in the Fixed Trilogy
Fixed on You is the first book in a trilogy but ends without a cliffhanger. Due to mature material, it is recommended for ages 17+.
Stalking and restraining orders are a thing of Alayna Wither's past. With her MBA newly in hand, she has her future figured out - move up at the nightclub she works at and stay away from any guy who might trigger her obsessive love disorder. A perfect plan. But what Alayna didn't figure on is Hudson Pierce, the new owner of the nightclub. He's smart, rich, and gorgeous - the kind of guy Alayna knows to stay away from if she wants to keep her past tendencies in check. Except, Hudson's fixed his sights on her. He wants her in his bed and makes no secret of it. Avoiding him isn't an option after he offers a business proposition she can't turn down and she's drawn further into his universe, unable to resist his gravitational pull.
When she learns Hudson has a dark history of his own, she realizes too late that she's fallen for the worst man she could possibly get involved with. Or maybe their less than ideal pasts give them an opportunity to heal each other and finally find the love their lives have been missing.

Let those who you love know today, tomorrow is not promised! Life experience, Mishawn
I Want Another! Meaning after the first book you need the second one and the third is a must.
There was always hot chemistry throughout the whole book.
Carly Robins definitely did this series justice. She was the perfect narrator for the for characters in this book.
I think I would a good sit down dinner with Jack. I feel he has a lot more insight than given credit for.
Don't stop here go ahead and get the next two. Most definitely worth the time and credit!
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Holy crap I LOVED this book! I am pretty sure I had a huge grin on my face for at least 5 minutes after reading this book. I may have even been clutching my iPhone to my chest so that I could hold on to Hudson and Alayna just a little bit longer. If I am being completely honest I sort of obsessed over Hudson and Alayna just a little bit, but only for like a day... I couldn't get them out of my head, and I have already come up with numerous different scenarios that I think could possibly take place for book 2. I don’t think I have been obsessed with a couple like this since…..well actually I think it was Tristan and Danika and that was only last week but still. This couple is one that is going to stay with me, right on up there with Gideon and Eva; Christian and Ana and James and Bianca...
My favorite part of the book that has stayed in my head... "But it wasn't just his incomparable beauty and exquisite display of male sex that had me burning between my legs and searching for the nearest exit. It was how he looked at me, in a way that no man had ever looked at me, a hungry possessiveness present in his stare as if he not only had undressed me in his mind, but had claimed me to be sated by no one ever again except him"... Gosh, i'm drooling all over the place !! :)
I so loved the Narration by Carly Robins, the voice she uses for Hudson is soooo Very Sexy, oh Yummy... I have already grabbed book two and three and can't wait for more Sexy time with this wonderful couple :)
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
Fixed On You by Laurelin Paige has will leave you panting! This book was utterly sexy and had just the right amount of angst and frustration to leave you wanting more. Alayna Withers and Hudson Pierce are two emotionally broken people that probably shouldn't be together, but it is in their brokenness that they seem to find themselves.
Alayna has issues with obsession; she becomes fixated on things, men to be exact. Stalking and restraining orders are part of her past. As she tries to plan her future at club she works for, and having just finished her MBA, Alayna thinks she has it all planned out, that is until she meets Hudson Pierce. He is just the kind of man, that she can find herself fixating on again.
Hudson Pierce is every girl's dream. He's wealthy, confident, handsome, and just oozes sex appeal. The man walks into a room, and he commands the attention. Hudson is an alpha male in every sense of the word. He sets his sights on Alayna for two specific purposes. These two reasons are to be compartmentalized, kept separate. Hudson is incapable of love, he says so himself.
When Alayna and Hudson come together, even if they aren't touching, the sexual tension is palpable! The chemistry between these two is scorching, and the sex...mind-blowing! This book will make you melt! Alayna accepts Hudson's proposition, but it becomes painfully clear that the separation in the two needs Hudson desires from Alayna isn't going to be possible.
I loved both Alayna and Hudson. Even though they were both emotionally broken individuals, I felt and saw the inner strength they each had, and I really pulled for them. My heart ached for Alayna as she tried to build herself up and heal herself and Hudson. I fell for Hudson almost immediately... I love and impossibly damaged man that I want to try to fix.
I absolulely loved Fixed On You by Laurelin Paige, and I can't wait to listen to more from Alayna and Hudson in the next books, Found In You and Forever Wtih You. This book was sexy, angsty, emotional and had the perfect amount of dysfunction to really pull you in. Loved it!
Fans of Gideon and Eva will love it!
Like the romance, but love the action involved to get there!
I had high hopes for this trilogy, I even waited for all three books to come out before I purchased book one....and the people I follow had such great things to say about this book but for me this book wasn't good. To be clear, I did finish the whole thing, and even downloaded book 2 to see if maybe it got better, it didn't. I'll be returning that one!
These are two broken people...but not like FSOG or bared to you...the woman has the obsession/compulsion issue of fantasizing relationships that aren't really happening, reading too much into what a guy says and has stalked men in the past resulting in a restraining order...now to the characters credit she got help, but at least 4 hours of this book is her talking to herself saying things like "I will not obsess over him....I will not do negative things....I will not over dramatize this....I will not go down the path of self destruction....I will remain calm and talk this out....I will not over react"...and so on and so on....hours upon hours of this insecure stuff, oh and of course she has these conversations WHILE she is doing the weird psycho stuff! Did he really go on a business trip or is he just avoiding me, oh I'll go ride the elevator every day just to see if he is there. OY! I'm slamming my head on my car dash wanting her to get on with the plot!
Then we have the man.....he's a billionaire....he's gorgeous....he's well endowed....but he is broken too. At least that is what we are told, but we don't see much of it in this book. But the gist is he is broken because he likes to mess with girls heads, get them to fall for them, and then he leaves....it's a game to him. He also got "help" with this problem.
Can you see the impeding disaster yet? Yup, contrived drama from her over reaction, contrived drama from everyone not believing he isn't just messing with her head, contrived drama from the billionaire dating the bartender standpoint and of course there is just random contrived drama...ex's, wanna be ex's, his mother is a special special person who has told him his whole life he CAN'T love anyone, he's incapable of it. There was just NOTHING uplifting about this story, nothing that made you want to know these people, and everything saying RUN, just don't read anymore, don't drag yourself down!
I really wanted to like this story, but I just can't. At least it isn't a cliffhanger book...but book 2 has a contrived drama twist in the first two hours that had me slamming my hand on the stop button....ENOUGH! I-have-had-ENOUGH!
Oh and the narrator....the male voice has zero sex appeal...not deep or sultry, more like young joke-ster...and the guy is suppose to be a serious business tycoon. Just didn't fit. Her inflections were good, but her male voices not so much.
So, if you adore contrived drama with twists and turns and gasps of surprise...i.e. random bombs being dropped just to watch people scatter in the story...then go for it, should be a great trilogy for you. For me, I am off to return book 2.
I can relate to Lanie a little bit. That moment of obsessing and stalking when there is a nagging feeling that something is wrong...which leads to bad decisions.... but Lanie was on another level and it worked for her. Now Hudson was all sorts of confused, how anyone can make a game out of pain and heartache is beyond me. Who knew 2 crazies can add up to sanity? Despite the 50 shades jabs, i think this was an enjoyable read worth my credit....and 1 more narrator added to my list when I go trolling for books!
Thanks to the glowing comments from other Reviewers I couldn't resist this listen and it had me glued to every unfolding chapter in this crazy, sexy, hot and touching love story.
Worth a credit? It's all been said before, it's about obsession and I'll admit it... I'm officially obsessed with this awesome trilogy and yippee I thankfully have books 2 and 3 ready to get lost in.... so YEAH I know it's going to be worth each and every credit.
I am a lover of books. I enjoy losing myself in a fabulous romance and great story plot.
Wow! I thought the concept and character development in this book was unique and interesting!
Laynie is definitely an unlikely heroine. In fact, in another fictional book she could very well have been the villain starring as the psychotic, obsessive ex-girlfriend. Yet, there is something vulnerable and appealing about Laynie who is very capable and smart as she recently graduated with an MBA, but who struggles with an obsessive relationship disorder that has brought her much pain and suffering. I really liked Laynie who is sincere, giving and introspective. She's cautious in her relationships as she does not want to fall into past destructive habits.
Hudson Pierce, our gorgeous CEO refers to her as "exquisitely beautiful and incredibly smart." In his proposition to Laynie, he was always up front about his desire for her, but made it clear that they were to engage in two separate realities. But, when both Laynie and Hudson have trouble keeping these realities separate, that's when this love train really starts to pick up speed!---I loved it when Hudson's own personal story and struggles emerged….Wow, talk about layering a story and making it both HOT and psychologically interesting!!! Both Hudson and Laynie have a steamy, sexy chemistry that makes it hard for them to keep their hands off of one another, and makes theirs one smoldering, erotic relationship blended with an emotionally evocative theme, due to each of their pasts.
I have to admit that initially I was turned off by certain descriptions like Laynie's frequent references to "her sex" clenching, swelling, or twitching, and then when she described her pants as being so tight that it gave her "camel toe", I was like "UMMMM NOOOO! Girl, what were you thinking????--Camel toe is NEVER sexy or attractive!!!!" LOL, I'm glad I overlooked those tiny annoyances along with others at the beginning, because as the book progressed it got really good and I became fully immersed in both the characters' struggles and ecstasies. The plot moves forward nicely with plenty of unfolding revelations and people in Laynie and Hudson's life that makes this one riveting read! I'm glad it's a trilogy to fully explore and enjoy this developing relationship between Hudson and Laynie that is ON FIRE and quite special.
Narrator: Bravo to Carly Robins!!…Wow, This woman is talented!!! She did an excellent job in conveying strong emotion in the dramatic parts, and her overall performance made this audiobook one great listening experience!
I'm not sure. The writing was fine - perhaps too many unnecessary adjectives. The heroines constant and lengthy introspection during action scenes.
The ridiculous conflict. The characters were not always obnoxious and the author's use of mystery grudgingly helped me finish the book. Well, that and the lack of adequate wifi during a long trip. Spoiler: the questions I developed with a couple of characters were not revealed in this novel ... perhaps some plausible revelations in book 2 or 3? Not happening for me.
Sugary Bubble Gum
Irritation with story line. Disappointment in 5 star ratings granted in early reviews.
I dislike posting negative comments concerning an author's hard work. The writing was fine. I'm simply the wrong audience for this novel and author. If you typically enjoy works by Claire Thompson, Madeline Sheehan, Annabel Joseph, Sierra Cartwright, etc. etc., this novel may not entertain you. I really wish it was easier to find a different schedule of ratings - perhaps maturity level? I would place this in something comparable to a PG - 17.
I'm more angry with myself for making a wasted purchase rather than any displeasure with the author. This work simply belongs to a different category of readers than myself.
