Blog Tour: Fixed On You by Laurelin Paige

Title: Fixed on You
Author: Laurelin Paige
Release date: June 2013
Age Group: Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Description:

Stalking and restraining orders are a thing of Alayna Pierce’s past. With her MBA newly in hand, she has her future figured out – move up at the nightclub she works at and marry the manager, David. He’s perfect for her because, although he’s attractive, he doesn’t get her all turned inside out and upside down like some other men have. It’s a safe plan, one that assures she’ll remain in control of her obsessive love disorder.

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 his plans to seduce her. Avoiding him becomes impossible after he offers a business proposition Alayna can’t turn down and she’s drawn further into his universe, unable to resist his gravitational pull.

Soon Alayna’s charmed by Hudson in every way possible and the control over her old behaviors slip. 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.

About the Author

Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Mad Men and the Walking Dead, or dreaming of Adam Levine. She is represented by Bob Diforio of D4EO Literary Agency.

My Thoughts:

The first thing I need to say, I LOVE this book! It is definitely one of my favorites the year! This book made me laugh, tear up a little bit and not to mention it was very hot. All elements I love in an adult romance novel.

Both Alayna and Hudson have issues: Alayna becomes crazy obsessive with boyfriends to a point where she becomes a stalker. Hudson uses women, he makes them fall in love with him and dump them all for the fun of it. He has been known to be a sociopath. While entering a relationship (whether it is working relationship or personal one), both Alayna and Hudson have to work hard to continue to not follow their impulses and become better people. Alayna and Hudson understand each other more than anyone else could understand them and know what the other has to go through to stay healthy and sane. They make a great couple.

Alayna is a great character. She is smart, personable, caring, and knows how to handle herself when the time comes. 
Below is one of my favorite quotes of Alayna defending Hudson to his own mother:
I spun to face her. No, because of how he seems to love you. I spit the words like venom. “When there’s no reason he should. When you’ve alienated him and betrayed him and destroyed him and made him the confused man he is by your lack of affection and support and faith. If he can continue to care about a piece of shit like you, after all you’ve done to him, then I have no doubt of his capability of love.”
This paragraph I read over and over again because it is so powerful and you can see how much Alayna understands him.

What can I say about Hudson? First of all, he has a very hot name but more importantly he is protective, possessive, the ultimate alpha male. He also knows how to have fun and let loose once in a while. Hudson’s mother is definitely a character I love to hate. She is a piece of work! She really doesn’t like Alayna and will do anything she can to get rid of her.

Days after I finished this book I could not stop thinking about it. It was always on my mind one way or another. I would definitely like to meet my own Hudson Pierce, definitely my kind of guyJ. I am dying to find out what happens next in the story. October 2013 really can’t come fast enough, that is when the second book, Found in You will be released. Fans of the Crossfire series will love this book.

My Rating:
5 out of 5 stars
