Uncovering this sexy geek’s charm is easy. Keeping her hands off of him is impossible.
While he may look like the love child of a movie starlet and an NFL linebacker, Ben Langley has the people skills of a half-drowned porcupine. Why socialize when there are chemistry labs and bad sci-fi flicks? If he has any hope of taking the helm as CEO of the family business, Ben needs an image makeover. Pronto.
Enter Holly Colvin, owner of First Impressions public relations and branding firm, and the woman who just saved Ben from the clutches of an over-attentive sales clerk. Holly’s rebranded hundreds of companies in her career, but she’s never rebranded a person. The guy clearly needs help, though, and she’s just the woman for the job.
With the clock ticking for them both, Holly and Ben face off over wardrobe malfunctions and business jargon that sounds a lot sexier than it should. But can Holly make Ben into the man he thinks he should be without losing the man she’s starting to love?

Oh, Ben! Nerdy, dirty Ben. I have to say, this one surprised me a little. I was intrigued and amused and, yes, even turned on by this socially awkward CEO. I do love me a good geek story.
Ben Langley is much more comfortable dealing with scientific equations and formulas than he is with people. B... ...more
Slick's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
I'll admit upfront that I love geeky heroes and Tawna Fenske delivered the best kind in The Fix Up. From the uproariously hilarious geeky but dirty sex talk, to the charming characters and finishing with some extremely sexy scenarios The Fix U... ...more

I have picked out The Fix-Up based on the cover and the book blurb. Tawna Fenske is a – for me – new author, so I was curious going in. This book certainly didn’t disappoint, for me it is an entertaining and sweet read, ideal for a Sunday afternoon.

The Fix-Up is my first read by Tawna Fenske, I've read a few dark books lately and I was after a more light hearted read and when this dropped on my Kindle it sounded spot on.
It's not a long book, alternating focus between Ben and Holly (I keep wanting to add Little King... ...more
I wasn’t expecting to fall in love with this story as much as I have. The Fix Up is a sweet and sensual romantic comedy with lots of sexy times and sexual innuendos that had me blushing in parts. But that’s not what made me enjoy the book so much; it was the smart writing, the lovable characters... ...more
Do you know, these Lovestruck novels are delightful reads to escape into and this is another great one!
This time the story involves a handsome, well built but total geek, Ben Langley, who is taking over his family firm as CEO. He’s much happier revelling in his geekdom, creating, innovating and d... ...more
I absolutely adored The Fix-Up my only gripe was at how short it was. Although that did nothing to detract from the pacing of the story, no case of insta-love here although there is definitely a case of insta-lust ;)
Told in third person narrative with alternating focus between Ben and Holly.

When you finish a book and your cheeks hurt from smiling so much, you know it was a good one.
This book was sweet, funny, awkward, sexy, frustrating, and so freaking hot all at once. I'm not even sure where to begin describing how much I liked it.
Scratch that, I'll start with Ben because I damn... ...more
Omg Tawna killed this book. She is the rom com queen. I laughed out loud through the whole book. And it was also oh so steamy. I mean sizzling hot.
Ben is just stepping into the role as CEO of his dads company. He is a geek through and through. He is a very hot and sexy geek though. He is out shop... ...more
The Fix Up is my first Tawna Fenske book and I gotta say... Where the hell have I been?! Tawna is hilarious!!!
I absolutely loved how the main characters met. We have all needed saving from someone we aren't interested in, and Holly was AWESOME! Quick thinking, funny, and unafraid, she helped Ben... ...more

The uber adorable cover is an excellent representation of just how much I enjoyed this book. I’ve always been a big fan of the makeover trope and when the person getting made over happens to be a charming bespectacled geek with a penchant for Star Wars and root beer floats; the happy fe... ...more
Before I say anything, WTF GOODREADS? I LIKED YOUR OLD LAYOUT SO MUCH FUCKING BETTER. THIS SHIT IS FUCKING ANNOYING YOU CLOWNS!
I was a little dubious about this book, but it had me laughing from the start. I finished a really good book at 4 in the morning and I couldn't sleep, which is why I star... ...more
I love me a nerdy hero and Ben is grand.
The cute meet in this book is silly as is the fast dropping of pants but it manages to be a charming sexy read with some added depths as well.
Ben is great. He wants to change his company for the better and is a genius. He knows he needs to smooth his image... ...more

I was very entertained by The Fix Up by Tawna Fenske! Holly is a PR and image branding consultant. Ben will be taking over as CEO of his father's company...if he can measure up to his father's standards. This is where Holly comes into his life - that is after a chance, intriguing encounter in a f... ...more
Tawna Fenske is a new to me author, but I'd rank her up there with Alice Clayton or Emma Chase in the romantic comedy genre, because I loved her writing style. To put it really quite simply, this book was absolutely adorable. I just loved everything about it. The characters are well developed, th... ...more
This was a lovely, funny story about a geeky guy trying to make it as the big bad CEO and the woman whom he hires to improve his image. Ben and Holly were so funny together, with sexual innuendo found in most of their conversations that it was a constant struggle not to laugh out loud. I liked ho... ...more
