Star college quarterback, Colt Walker, has it all: good looks, brains, one of the best arms in the game, not to mention potential for the Heisman and a first round NFL draft pick, until he puts it all on the line as he slides into the ugly world of sports gambling. College football referee, Frank Gastner, is a man stewing in his own misery, consumed by a drinking problem, heavy gambling debt, and heading into a nasty divorce.

The story focuses on Newhouse University football player, Colt Walker, who finds himself caught up in relationship drama with his cheerleader girlfriend and a growing gambling issue. With every twist and turn, Colt finds himself facing obstacle after obstacle.

I refuse to spoil all of the amazing plot twists the reader faces when reading The Fix!!!

While the cover, and blurb, show that The Fix, leans towards a more athletic audience, anyone who loves a good story with many twists and turns, dynamic characters, and, of course, Syracuse, will find The Fix to be worthy of their time! The story, while fiction, sheds a valuable light on current issues and real potential, life-altering disasters college students (and anyone really) should look out for.

10/10
