Description:  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.

 

REVIEW: I really enjoyed Fixed On You. I am happy to have read a story in which both characters are completely and utterly damaged. Many stories within the same genre usually focus on insecurities and family drama, however Fixed On You moved onto a whole new group giving the reader a glimpse into the lives and mind of a woman who fights to find love, even if finding it drives her into self-destruction.

Laurelin Page did a great job creating these characters and giving us a story that though may come as crazy and unrealistic it is filled with anguish, desire, need and passion. Possessive, sexy, rich and obsessive is how I can only describe Hudson Pierce, a man whose past is as tormented as his present and who has used his power, his money, his passion and looks to break women’s heart. I enjoy flawed and broken characters, because  their breaking point and their awaking makes the story more realistic. The author did just that, she created a character who doesn’t wear his emotions, and someone who is willing to break your heart while giving unimaginable pleasure.

Alayna on the other hand is the type of woman we can relate to. She works for a living, work hard and tries to advance in life the right way, by hard work and dreams. I enjoyed her character because women can easily identify with her. Ambitious, intelligent and sexual. While I don’t necessarily like how she handles her relationship with Hudson, and I don’t really understand her reluctance to acquire professional help,  I think it is her need and desire that makes her a lot more likeable. Her vulnerability comes in different flavors, she knows her feelings aren’t new and that the outcome this time around is different. I like her character because though she has flaws, she isn’t afraid to explore her emotions.

Her ability to find a happy medium between her and Hudson is perhaps the most interesting part of this story. They each is vulnerable in a different way, one is or at least believes is unable to love and the other feels and understand the need for love and her willingness to make it happen adds romance and passion to the story. Both experience acceptance and love in different ways, Hudson though powerful and insufferable needs acceptance, while Alayna needs love and affection.

This story flows nicely, and the characters dialog is quite enjoyable making it at times funny and sexy. Their interaction feels natural and allows the reader to draw conclusions and speculation of how the story may end. Can a stalker and a sociopath find a happily ever after?  I enjoyed every aspect of this story, I like the plot, the pace at which the story flows, the characters and the steamy and well crafted sex scenes. The sex is hot, and their play quite steamy, readers may need a fan or a cold drink after reading Fixed On You, one is likely to need a “fix” after reading this.
