Publisher's Summary

British bad boy Sterling Quinn needs a wife. After his great-grandfather, the former prince something or another, passes and leaves him millions, he's shocked to discover the massive inheritance has a clause - he needs to clean up his image and be married in order to receive his millions.

When word gets out that this hottie has royal blood running through his veins, and is on the prowl for Mrs. Right, crazy ex-girlfriends, school-yard crushes, and thousands of other hopeful women flock to his doorstep.

What he needs is a manager to help him sort through the clutter.

Enter Camryn Palmer, PR executive. Camryn has had a front row seat to her friend Sterling's revolving-door of a love-life for years. But when she's hired to clean up his image and manage the hordes of women cruising through his bedroom door, she's stuck between a rock and a hard place. Literally.

Yes, she has secret fantasies about being the one to keep his bed warm - what woman doesn't? He's sinfully attractive, and she wants to kiss that cocky English accent right off his lips, but she's got a job to do. She's a professional through and through, and besides, an arranged marriage could never be a happy one. Right?

    I am obsessed with audio books! My favorite genre is erotica and romance -- there's just not enough hours in the day to enjoy ...

    "A HOT MESS!"
    What disappointed you about The Fix Up?

    The love story between Cami and Sterling had potential but the premise was too scattered, the plot was under developed and the family relationships and friendships were unexplored. I didn't understand the how's and why's of Sterling being the sole beneficiary of his great grandfather. Who hires a PR person to become a matchmaker? And the "big" matchmaking event was the biggest joke of all -- an employee becomes a potential on the day of the event just like that when there was a screening process that narrowed down the potentials, an ex-girlfriend just waltzes in and the coordinator of the event just walks out in the middle of the event. The whole thing was anything but professional. The female narrator, Ava Erickson, sounds like a teenager which added to the juvenile feel of the story. It was very difficult to finish listening to the end.


    What was most disappointing about Kendall Ryan’s story?

    I couldn't connect with any of the characters. I liked the relationship between Anna and Cami -- friends since elementary school -- but this lifelong relationship was just blown up with no real explanation or afterthought.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Ava Erickson and John Lange ?

    I have listened to several books narrated by Ava Erickson and because her voice sounds like a teenager with braces, it can be difficult to get beyond that. I think her voice is better suited for much younger characters. I will listen if the story is good. John Lange is the only reason I finished this book -- his voice saved an otherwise unlistenable story.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was very disappointed and the few sex scenes did not make up for the complete mess of this book.


    Any additional comments?

    This book could have been so much better with a decent editor -- it had so much potential.

    "Meh"

    The story was contrived, the narration was not what I'd hoped for. The cover art was not a depiction of the male character. Don't know who it was supposed to be.

    "Cute and Predictable!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Fix Up the most enjoyable?

    If you want to read or listen to that is easy and predictable, this is a perfect book for you! What I like about this not too much drama! But, sometimes drama can be entertaining! LOL!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fix Up?

    When Sterling to Cami visited his mother.


    Which character – as performed by Ava Erickson and John Lange – was your favorite?

    They both did a great job!!


    Any additional comments?

    What didn't make any sense to me, the betrayal from her girlfriend Ana. I didn't think Ana would do such a thing, she came across a good friend. There wasn't any hint in the storyline that Ana was jealous of Cami (unless I missed it). Plus, not sure what happened to Sterling ex-girlfriend, I guess she hooked up with the security guard during the interview process. That was weird - it didn't fit. I think the editors did not do a good job in editing this book.

    "Really disappointed"
    What would have made The Fix Up better?

    If the story wasn't so goofy and farfetched.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not sure.


    What does Ava Erickson and John Lange bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I thought both did a good job but Ava's British accent often slipped and it was distracting.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The opening lines. It went completely downhill from there.


    Any additional comments?

    This was the first time I read this author and I wasn't impressed. The story was over the top and completely predictable. Boo.
