Publisher's Summary

My life is a friggin’ fairytale - just not the kind any single girl would ever want to star in.

Laney

Like any good heroine, I have challenges to face. Getting my son to wear pants is one; dealing with my snooze-fest of a job is another. Then there’s the Beast, my freeloading brother who’s worn a permanent dent in the couch at my new place. And no fairytale would be complete without a smoking-hot prince, of course. Too bad he’s a complete ass.

My instincts scream at me to steer clear of Nate Murphy. Because, if life has taught me anything, there is no such thing as "happily ever after".

Nate

I may not be a superhero, but I do my best to come to the rescue when I’m needed. And, hey, I just moved halfway across the country after a single phone call from my mom. But being back home and taking on the responsibilities involved makes me a bit cranky at times. Unfortunately, the one time I completely lose my cool is in front of the hottest girl I’ve ever met. I’ve got my work cut out for me if I’m going to fix this. But I will fix this. I’ll be anything Laney Monroe needs me to be...a superhero, a prince, or just a guy she might take a chance on.

Get The Fix and start the hilariously addictive Carolina Connections series today!

pants optional

Some tongue in cheek , some laugh out loud belly laughs, but full on entertaining! I liked Laney, but she had many shrewish moments and I feel she was too harsh with Gavin. He lost a career, and she didn't have empathy. Face facts,
she blatantly screwed up by getting knocked up with acone night stand, so who is the real idiot!!! Pot meet kettle, Laney!!!!! Shut your big mouth girl. Nate was very kind. giving, and honest and I liked that. Rocco got on my nerves at times between the lisp and no one correcting him and making him sleep in his own bed- parenting 101.
Kaney was far from correct or perfect , but she kept hammering at Gavin. I loved the narrator's accent, voice and expressions, and they added to my enjoyment of this story. Laney needs a muzzle and some shock therapy!!

Love the story, Narrator is a great Laney

Love Laney and Nate's love story and the narrator does great with bringing Laney to life. I earned my Marathon badge listening - didn't want to pause! - and laughed out loud especially at little Rocco! I would've loved a male voice to bring Nate to life but overall, Sylvie's words sound great in any octave.

Funny Rom Com

This is a great book; this is the first book in the Carolina Connections series and is written by Sylvie Stewart and narrated by Alice Wander. I loved Laney and Nate’s romance and it was so funny. I listened to it in one sitting. The narrator did a fabulous job with the characters and had me giggling out loud several times. I can’t wait to read/listen to the next book by this great author and narrator.

A southern comedy. Lot's of swearing and some hot scenes comprise this zany slice of life as a single mother. The characters are great and their quirky idiosyncrasies present and accounted for.

Warning: Reading in public could cause alarm when you smile hugely and sudden bursts of laughter erupt.

Alice Wander is terrific. Adding even a little singing to the story.

I recieved a free Audible copy of this story in exchange for a honest review.

CUTE AS A CAROLINA ACCENT

THE FIX is the first book in the Carolina Connections series. Though each is intended to stand alone, they will be better enjoyed as a continuing series in the order of release.

Laugh-out-loud funny, but down to earth real as well. This is a story about how real people meet and interact. How they argue, banter, tease, and love.

The writing is upbeat and romantic. This is not looking for high drama, even while looking at home safety, single motherhood, family commitments, and love in all of its forms (family, friends, and lovers). This is the author’s first book, and I am looking forward to seeing her grow in her career.

Narration: I’ve lived in North Carolina and South Carolina. Alice Wander sounds just like my old neighbors!

Note: While I received this book as a gifted audiobook copy, my opinions are my own and are given freely.

Hilarious, sweet, steamy listen!

Laney and Nate are adorable. Neither of them expects to meet someone who fills the empty spaces in their hearts.

Nate is charmed by her spunk, her child, her odd tendencies and her curves. She is drawn to him and discovers he's a hot guy who is grumbly but sweet and so caring. They're both on unfamiliar territory. I love his plan to work his way into her life. Their families add to it. Loved it all.

I enjoyed the narrator although I think the story would have benefited from a male narrator.

Gotta Love Rocco

This story is very funny and the antics that happen to Laney are delightful. The voice the narrator uses for Rocco sounds like a lispy kid talking like an adult. I like that Nathan has his head on straight, because dealing with Laney, he's going to have to remember to be the adult. This story reminded me that life happens and how we deal with the pain and joy can make our life good or bad, also it helps that Laney has some crazy friends.

Loved It!

I absolutely loved “The Fix” audiobook. I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with Laney, Nate, Gavin, Fiona and Rocco. It was if I had a birds eye view into their lives and there was nothing forced about these characters, their quirks or their interactions. Since I spend a lot of time commuting to work each day, I used that time to listen to the audiobook and it really made the time fly. It was such a pleasant surprise to find myself looking forward to my commute. There were even days I sat in my driveway after I arrived home waiting for a “good stopping point” before I went in the house. I cannot wait to start the next one!

Loved the story

This was a fabulous enjoyable story , very engaging with humour and romance. Loved little Rocky, and the relationship between Laney and her brother Gavin was enjoyable.
To be honest I ha have mixed feelings about the narration. It is done solely as a female, previous ones I'd listened too bad separate male and female for the characters. It just meant on a couple of occasions if I wasn't concentrating I got mixed up about whether I was listening to Laney or Nates part. Some of the narration was a bit unclear at times, however that could just be me not being used to a US accent, but other times the narrator seemed to portray the different parts well.

worth a listen

I really enjoyed this audiobook, it took me a while to get used to the narrator as the female and male voice but the story line more than made up for it , I loved the strong single mum and the hot construction worker , a nice lighthearted listen that will have you laughing

Nice Story, Well Narrated Despite No Male Lead

The male perspective was used by the author in this sweet story about a single mum. But Alice Wonder narrated the male and female perspectives. Along with all the characters in the story, and she did a great job with them all, we had to listen to her narrate both leads. It was disappointing and, in my opinion, spoiled the listening experience. Bad choice not to hire a male voice. The author should choose to leave out the male perspective, or have a male read it.
