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. But ...more

The storyline was sweet and entertaining, the characters were likable, lovable and made this a fun read.

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 Kingdom ...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 and ...more

By Emma December 17, 2015

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.

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.
