Book Review: Fixed on You

Fixed on You (Fixed, #1) by Laurelin Paige: 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.

TeriLyn's thoughts: Fixed on You was an engrossing and quick read. I really enjoyed Hudson and Alayna. Both characters have extremely addictive personalities stemming from sordid pasts. Their addictions are opposite however both extreme in intensity. Alayna loves too hard and Hudson doesn't love at all. What I loved about the story is that they are both brutally honest to each other. There are no secrets between them about the extent to which they both have gone to feed their addictions.

Alayna is broken. And while I do think that the back story as to why she is broken could have been developed more, her past is interesting and unique from other things I have read before. Falling in love quick and craving co-dependence is an easy trap to fall into. With Hudson, she makes it known that this will likely happen. Hudson does not judge her, rather he finds a kindred spirit. They both found someone who understands them and matches their intensity. Hudson while rich, powerful, and dominant has been defeated by his Mother. Sophia Pierce is a fierce woman and as mean as the day is long. She is condescending about Hudson's problems. She even relishes the fact that he is a sociopath so she could use it against him. When Alayna starts to prove she can be just as strong if not stronger than Sophia in her convictions about Hudson's ability to love, it makes you want to hug her.

I'm so excited to read the second book. Hopefully Hudson realizes he's met his match. The ending of Fixed on You tells me they might just tackle their addictions and the world together.
