REVIEW – 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.

When we start working together, 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.

*This is a spin-off from the HITCHED series, but can be read as a standalone.

Strange as it sounds, I’m coming to look forward to her presence in my life. I didn’t realize it until now, but I’ve been living a lonely existence until she happened into my life.


This book was like a little slice of heaven for me. It was low on angst. The heroine was endearing, but most of all it had one sinfully sexy British Hero. Sterling was one of the secondary characters in the HITCHED series. I never really got a true sense as to the kind of man he was and so I was more than curious to get his story. I can safely say that this book surpasses its predecessor by leaps and bounds!!! I loved Sterling to pieces. His gift for filthy talking, his charming demeanor, and the utter love and devotion for his mother had me melting for the man. What can I say? I am a sucker for romances between an American Girl and a British Boy!!

Sterling Quinn has just found out that he is to inherit fifty million dollars from a distant relative. There is one stipulation- he has to marry within the next six months. Marriage goes against everything Sterling believes in. The man is one of the most eligible bachelors in NYC and is well known for being a big-time player. But there are reasons why Sterling doesn’t believe in marriage. He’s one of NYC’s top divorce attorneys, so he has seen countless marriages go awry, but it was his parent’s divorce that rocked him to his core and is the root of why he doesn’t believe in love and marriage. His parents were so deeply in love and their marriage seemed to be solid until Sterling’s mother became ill and his father decided to leave her for another woman. He abandoned Sterling’s mom when she developed Alzheimer’s. Sterling makes a pretty penny as a successful divorce attorney but not enough to place his mother in one of the most state of the art facilities in New York. This inheritance can make it so his mother could be well taken care of and for that reason alone, he decides to comply with the inheritance stipulation.


Camryn Palmer knows all about Sterling Quinn and his lady-killer ways. She works at Tate & Cane Enterprises and is also Olivia Tate’s best friend. Sterling and Camryn have spent a lot of time around each other because they were the best man and maid of honor in Noah & Olivia’s wedding. They’ve always been attracted to each other but never took it passed light flirting. But now they will be spending an enormous amount of time together because Camryn’s new client is Sterling and she must help him find the woman he is going to marry.

These two end up getting to know each other on a much deeper and personal level. Sterling wants to pursue this thing with Camryn and ditch the wife finding project but has no idea how to go about winning her over. Cami is fighting her feelings for Sterling because she believes that they don’t stand a chance. Will they figure things out before it’s too late?

If you are a Kendall Ryan fan, you are not going to be disappointed with this one!!! And if you’re a sucker for a British book boyfriend like I am, then you’ll definitely want to one-click this as soon as possible!!

*****Dee’s Review*****

3.5 Sexy Stars****

(ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review)

Who doesn’t love a sexy guy with a British accent and charming personality? The hero in this book was all that and more. Sterling Quinn will keep you swooning like it’s going out of style for the entirety of this novel. Get ready because this man always gets what he wants, and he’s coming for you…


Sterling Quinn is a divorce lawyer who doesn’t believe in love. His lack of faith in relationships is not only due to his profession but because of his father’s abandonment. Sterling has never been interested in marriage, but you know how the saying goes; never say never, and now karma is out to get him. Sterling has recently been appointed the only heir of his uncle’s fifty million dollar fortune, but he can only claim the money after completing one stipulation; he must get married within the next six months.

Thanks to the local news, every woman in the city has caught wind of Sterling’s situation and he is getting fed up with all the unwanted female attention, which is why he’s had to hire a PR company to help him deal with the problem.

The PR rep in charge of his account is the beautiful and unobtainable Camryn Palmer. Poor Sterling can’t believe his luck, Camryn is a total professional and the best at what she does. But she is not immune to the raw beauty and charm of her new sexy client. Camryn knows exactly who Sterling is, she knows his reputation, and even though she knows she has her work cut out for her, she is definitely up for the challenge.

As Sterling and Camryn start working on finding him a suitable wife, they start to realize the great chemistry they have, sparks fly, stolen kisses begin, and clothing is now optional, every time they hang out. But both of them know the danger that comes with indulging in this new wicked game they are becoming very good at playing.

There is a big problem though, and that is that money aside, Camryn is not a one night only kind of woman, and Sterling simply doesn’t do commitment. These two will get tangled up in a very sexy mess, and lucky for us, we are coming along for the ride.
