NOW AVAILABLE!! Fix My Fall by Carey Heywood ~ Sarah A’s Review

Abby Thompson’s love life is a disaster. Everyone around her is blissfully falling in love, while she’s busy binge watching anime. The last thing she needs is a walking temptation, in the form of ex-nerd turned dreamy astrophysics professor, Spencer Hill, aka her new client.

It’s her job to find Spencer his dream home, NOT fantasize about a ride on his space rocket. But the sparks between them are impossible to ignore, and soon, Abby is wondering if her losing streak in love could be turning around.

Can she get over her anxiety he’s got her out-brained, and can he let go of the past and the fear that the girl he crushed on in high school is still out of his league?

My quite fond of the Thompson family, they’re a good, fun break from my usual dense, heartrending reads.  I know when I start one of these books I’m going to get a few hours of sweet, enjoyable romance.  It’s like going home after a particularly arduous work week or even heading off for a day of pampering when you’ve been momming it 24/7 for months on end.  Carey Heywood’s Fix series is a safe, comforting place to return to.

Fix My Fall is the third book in Carey Heywood’s Fix series.  These books are interconnected stand-alones and can be read without any knowledge of the other books in the series.  However, the series revolves around a set of siblings, so you do see a lot of the characters from the previous books in Fix My Fall.  This book is written in dual first-person perspective, narrated by Abby & Spencer.

Abby was tough; she had to be with four brothers and her slightly overbearing – in the best way possible – parents. If she had been any weaker, she couldn’t have held her own with all those giant personalities and the Thompson family legacy.  I’d questioned her reticence to date in the other books, and the blurb of Fix My Fall made me think she had gone through something major, but it may have been the experience of my typical reads informing my expectations.  I do wish we would have found out more about why she was so reluctant to date, however.

Spencer was the sweetest.  I loved how gentle he was with Abby, even when she was more than capable than taking care of herself.  And the boy had a brain, which he actually used to navigate his relationship rather than just relying on instincts and poor advice from his friends.  I thought it was adorable – I know, no man likes to be called adorable under ANY circumstance – that he didn’t try to start anything with Abby until he was 100% sure she was ready for it.  He was really quite perfect in every way.

Fix My Fall covered quite an extended period, though there was big time jumps so it didn’t feel like we had to wait too long for things to happen.  I appreciated that Carey Heywood gave them that time to get to know one another well and build their relationship on something more than attraction and physical chemistry.  Their relationship and the way they dealt with the few snags they encountered felt real and solid.

Carey Heywood is my go-to for this kind of quick, sweet romance.  Her characters always feel like old friends and visiting them is comforting.  Her stories are heartwarming and relatable.  Her books aren’t difficult, thought-provoking, exposes, but they will always find a place on my reading line-up because they’re so enjoyable and humble.

Fix Me Not by Carey Heywood ~ Sarah A’s Review

Paige Sullivan’s life is a train wreck. In a matter of months, she lost her business, her swanky apartment, and her big city life. Now she’s stuck in Nowhere, New Hampshire, sleeping on her mom’s couch. If that wasn’t bad enough, she’s forced to do odd jobs for money. She has a plan though, and once she’s saved enough, she’s out of there. That is, as long as she doesn’t murder her sexy new employer first.

Asher Thompson is the ruggedly handsome hermit of the Thompson clan. Tall, ridiculously sexy despite his beard, and annoyingly aloof, his main concern is his privacy. He fills his days with his work as a carpenter and the peaceful solitude of his lake house. A peaceful solitude that vanished the moment Paige Sullivan stormed into his life, hell-bent on driving him crazy.

The problem is, opposites attract and each time they cross paths she works her way further under his skin.

Fix Me Not was a cute, sweet, easy afternoon read.  Like all of Carey Heywood’s books, these characters felt like old friends.  That is why I return to her books time and again – they’re familiar and comfortable – and sometimes it’s nice to just enjoy the peace that type of a book brings.  The writing, plot, and characterizations this book are effortless.  There was nothing horribly surprising or challenging, it was a breeze to read, and after some relative heavy books it was a nice change of pace.

I found Asher to be the most intriguing of the Thompson siblings in Fix Her Up and I was excited to see what made him tick and how he’d come to the decision to seclude himself from society.  Unfortunately, I didn’t feel like I got much in the way of answers as far as that was concerned.  The only explanations given seemed trite and incongruent with the other aspects of his personality.  I just wish this aspect of Asher’s life was more fully explored in a way that truly explained his behavior.  For me, it just felt like a missed opportunity to touch on some important and heavier themes.

There were also some missed opportunities with Paige and her relationship with her mother.  As antagonistic as it was, it felt like there were some underlying issues that were never mentioned.  I kept hoping that Ms. Heywood would delve into their dynamic more fully but it was left unexplained all together.

Though I truly wish some of those more difficult aspects of the book weren’t fully explored, I was satisfied with the story that was told in Fix Me Not.  Asher and Paige had an adorable relationship, and I enjoyed the way they challenged one another to explore parts of themselves they weren’t fully comfortable with.  I also really liked that we got to check in with some of the other Thompsons and am looking forward to continuing to witness the siblings find their futures.

“Here,” Paige says, passing me a water and a plate of fries through my window.

I’m back in the parking lot of the Moose tonight, parked right next to Millie’s Explorer.

“Are you trying to drug me?” I had asked.

She shrugs her slender shoulders. “Consider it a truce.”

I’ve finished all of the fries and am still working on my drink when she returns an hour or so later.

“Shouldn’t you be playing with your wood?”

I choke on my water.

“This your idea of a truce?” I ask once I’m done coughing.

“Humor me,” she says, leaning against my door. “You hired my mom so you wouldn’t have to leave your land. Now you’re leaving it every day to stalk me. What gives?”

My head jerks back. “I am not stalking you.”

She presses her lips together before a bubble of laughter escapes. “What would you call it?”

I frown partly at her question and more so at the way she’s acting. “Why are you being nice to me?”

Why Not? was a good story.  If I hadn’t previously read Carey’s work I might even say it was great, for me, however, it just didn’t quite stand up to the other books of hers I’ve read.  It just didn’t quite have the depth of feeling or resolution of the others.

I did really enjoy Trip and Reilly’s story.  It was sweet and emotional.  The love they shared was beautiful.  Even in the earliest moments of their non-relationship arrangement, you could feel how deep their connection was.  Getting to experience the small and wonderful moments that led them to a forever love was a lovely experience.

There was just too much that happened off-page for me.  We were given the answers to most of the questions that had arisen throughout the book and the series, we just weren’t taken on the journey to those resolutions.  I’m the type of person who is far more interested in the journey than the destination, so I was left wanting in that way.  There were certain situations where I almost felt like I had skipped entire sections of the book as I was uncertain how we’d gone from the point in the story we had previously been at.

Overall, Why Not? was a good story.  It had all of the elements I need in a good love story and I was very happy with the primary plotline.  I just really would have liked a little more time to have been spent on properly exploring and tying up the subplots, as they felt too rushed to be satisfying.

The Love Riddles series was one of the best series I read in 2016 and I can only hope that we will have the chance to revisit that world again in the future.  Carey Heywood was a great ability to make me care deeply for all of the characters in her books, regardless of how much they actually appear within the pages and there are several I still want to see more of.

After finishing Why Now? I was eager to dig into Why Lie? the characters that Carey Heywood had created were so likable that I was happy to spend more time with them.  While Why Lie? definitely can be read as a stand-alone, as it revolves around a different couple, I would highly suggest reading Why Now? first because there is some backstory in that book that makes Why Lie? more easy to slide into.

I’ve got to be really honest and say I wasn’t a huge fan of Heath when I finished Why Now? and the prologue to this book made me like him even less.  After getting into his head I slowly came around to him.  He was still a little overbearing for me, but given his specific situation I was able to forgive him for his transgressions.  He was obviously trying to control at least one aspect of his life while another part of his life was so desperately out of his hands.  By the end of the book he had won me over, had even shed tears for Heath throughout the novel.

I had misread Sydney a lot in Why Now?  I liked her well enough, but I had completely missed the mark with her backstory.  I’m a bit of a sadist, so I was a little let down with her actual past.  Why Lie? Made me fall in love with Sydney, she was such a strong character, I appreciated her refusal to just accept things in her life.  I loved that she fought for herself, even when it would have been easier (and probably more beneficial) for her to accept the help offered her.  She was fierce and amazing, and I am still in awe of the type of person she was.

Why Lie? absolutely destroyed me at various times.  It was so much the story between Sydney and Heath that was so devastating, it was the moments where we saw Heath interacting with his mother.  Those moments were so beautiful, so sad, they just broke me.  There was so much love there, love that Heath was able to embrace and learn from, there was no question that Heath was exactly the type of man that Sydney needed.

I wholeheartedly give this book 5 stars.  I didn’t get everything I wanted in book one, Why Now?, but I got everything in this book.  Everything.  Hurt, healing, love, pain, all of the things that I look for when I am searching for something amazing to read.

ALP Excerpt Owl

Popping up on my elbow, I watch as he moves to the bathroom to take care of the condom. My eyes linger on his muscular back and oh so grabable ass.

He was amazing.

Ah-mazing.

Sure, we tumbled into bed pretty fast but it didn’t end up being the wham bam thank you ma’am I was scared it would be. Nope, this was something. It was new but it was something more than just sex.

He was into me and I’m so into him it isn’t even funny. Scary thing is, he’s such a nice guy even my parents would approve, and they hate any guy I normally like.

Nope, he’s different and for every night this week, he’s been all mine. Flopping back onto my pillows, I sigh just remembering how all mine he’s been.

I was working a closing shift at Lola’s, the diner my family ran. It had been a complete shit night with two waitresses calling out. I was up to my elbows in work covering for the both of them. Then he surprised the hell out of me by offering to help. We weren’t strangers; in a town as small as Ferncliff that’s impossible. Still, we were friendly, but we weren’t friends. We ran with different crowds.

He was like the apple pie he always seemed to order, where I was a cupcake covered in sprinkles.

After trying and failing to get someone else to come in, I had taken him up on his offer. I can’t remember the last time I had that much fun working. The entire night felt like foreplay. At the time I thought it was all in my head. I can be a flirt and I didn’t think I was his type. It was when he stayed to help clean and close up that it became clear he was flirting back.

After everyone else was gone, I asked if he’d like to come up to my place for a drink. He said yes. We never did have a drink. Nope, we were kissing before I even had the door opened.

He has been in my bed every night since.

At the sound of his footsteps, I lift my head. The front view is just as good, if not better than the back. He laughs at my blatant appraisal.

“Keep looking at me like that and you won’t be going to sleep anytime soon,” he murmurs, lying down next to me and pulling me into his arms.

“Maybe I’m not as tired as I thought,” I reply.

It’s a lie though. As much as I would want to play on the jungle gym that is his insanely hot body, there’s only so much sex instead of sleep my body can handle. All I want to do is pass out. Since he’s as comfy as he is hot, it’s likely that will happen in the next couple of seconds.

“What are you doing tomorrow night?” he asks, nuzzling the sensitive spot behind my ear.

“I have to close,” I reply.

“I’m meeting up with some friends. It sucks you’re working.”

Hiding my smile at the fact he admitted he wanted to introduce me to his friends, I kiss the underside of his jaw. “You can come here after.”

Since Ferncliff is a small town, I already know who his friends are. They all seem cool; I’m just not close with any of them.

His arms tighten around me. “I’ll probably be out late and you need to catch up on sleep.”

I lift my head and squint down at him. “Why do you have to be so logical?”

He grins up at me, pushing forward to press his lips to mine.

“Stop being cute and go back to sleep.”

“I’m not that tired,” I yawn.

He grins. Putting his hand to the back of my head, he pulls me back down. I don’t fight it. I settle in and, with a happy smile, I crash.

What seems like an instant later, he gets out of bed to turn off his alarm. “Go back to sleep.” He issues his command and seals it with a kiss to my forehead.

“Bossy,” I grumble, before drifting off again.

When I open my eyes again, he’s already showered and dressed. After our third sleepover in a row, he brought an overnight bag. His dark blond hair is still wet. It’s not fair how sexy he looks freshly showered and in one of his suits.

“Come back to bed,” I plead.

He grabs his shoes and comes to sit on the bed next to me. “I wish.”

Curving my body around him, I rest my cheek to his thigh. He pushes my hair back from my face, his fingertips caressing my earlobe. My eyes flutter closed at his gentle touch. He seriously has it all.

It sucks to say but before him, I was under the impression that I have had amazing sex in my life. One night with him proved me wrong and each night since has only reinforced that.

“Are you sure you don’t want to come over tonight?” I ask.

“It’s not about want. You have to work and I can’t bail on my friends. Trust me, I’ll want to be here instead.”

I smile up at him. “Okay.”

He kisses me, this time long and hard before he goes. Happily, I doze until my stomach demands I get up to feed it.

My day flies by in the way that time does and I head downstairs. One amazing perk about living in the apartment above Lola’s was no commute. I walk to the convenience store and buy a Heath bar. I always loved them and now they’ve turned into a private joke with myself. I am such a dork.

Admitting that to myself won’t stop me from eating this candy bar once my shift is over, lusting after the guy who shares its name. Once I’m back upstairs in my apartment I pull it out of the bag and set it on my table. Snapping a pic of my candy bar, I text it to him, adding that I’d rather have the real thing.

My phone vibrates in my hand before I have a chance to set it down. Grinning, I answer it.

“Hey.”

“Hey back.”

“Did you like my pic?” I ask.

He chuckles before replying, “I can think of a few other things I wouldn’t mind a pic of.”

Naughty man!

“No flirting since I don’t get to see you tonight,” I return.

“It’s only one night.”

Yes, it’s one night but I’ll miss seeing him.

“At least I have a chocolatey stand in,” I tease, trying not to let on how bummed I am.

“I’ll give you that, but no apple pie without me.”

“Ever?” I giggle.

He’s serious when he replies, “Yep.”

Silly as it sounds, planning future apple pie dates gives me a thrill. This thing that we have going is moving at light speed. That doesn’t mean it’s wrong. Gigi told me she took one look at Pop and knew she was going to marry him one day. It wasn’t love at first sight for me, but love at first night.

“Deal,” I whisper.

We say our good-byes since I need to finish getting ready for work. Deciding to save it for one of my breaks, I slip my candy bar into the pocket of my apron and hurry downstairs to start my shift.

As usual, we have a busy dinner rush. During each lull, I find my mind wandering to him. Each time I can’t help but smile to myself already looking forward to the next time we’ll see each other.

Work keeps me from daydreaming about him for too long and by the end of the night, I’m grateful for the chance to catch up on sleep. After I indulge in my chocolaty Heath goodness, I get ready for bed. My small apartment never felt this lonely before.

It hasn’t been that long but I already miss him. His scent, a faint hint of the cologne I’ve come to adore, clings to my sheets. I bury my face into them, inhaling deeply, wishing he was here with me. Hugging my pillow, my last thought before sinking fully to sleep is how much nicer it is to fall asleep in his arms.

It’s my alarm that wakes me the next morning. In my infinite wisdom, I scheduled myself a morning shift after a closing one. With Gigi slowly passing the reins of Lola’s diner over to me, she’s been having me make the schedule.

So far I’m still getting the hang of it. It seems the only person’s schedule I keep screwing up is my own. That’s what I get for trying to accommodate everyone’s requests by squeezing myself to cover all the holes. Wiping sleep from my eyes, the prospect of a giant cup of coffee once I get downstairs has me moving.

There’s already a line of folks waiting when one of our morning waitresses opens the door. It’s not like our hours have changed in the past few decades. Wiping down the counter, I greet folks as they come in. We don’t have hostesses; Lola’s is seat yourself. Most of the morning crowd opts for the stools along the counter.

I’m pouring Hank Furlong a mug of coffee when I hear something that doesn’t compute. Setting down the coffee pot next to the mug, I move down the counter in a daze.

“What did you just say?” I ask.

Aaron Daniels blinks up at me. “About Heath Mackey and Kacey Albright getting engaged?”

Oh God, I had heard him right. My stomach falls, crashing down like a bird shot out of the sky.

“They got engaged?” I ask in a robotic tone.

I’m there but not there. Half of me waits for Aaron to reply while the other half spirits away to comb through still fresh memories of him holding me, kissing me, and making my body his.

Gossip moves through this town like wildfire. There is no way I missed them dating. The last I heard, Kacey still held a torch for Jake Whitmore. It didn’t even matter that he pretty much lived on an oilrig off the coast. No, Heath was single. Unless part of the reason he had been so discreet with me was to keep Kacey from finding out.

It was nothing short of a miracle that no one clued into his spending every night this week at my place. I had assumed it was because we were new. That’s why I hadn’t spilled the beans to anyone. How could I be so wrong about him?

He nods. “I was sitting at the table next to them. Bought them a round to congratulate them even though they were both well on their ways to celebrating.”

My entire frame is so tense I wouldn’t be surprised if one wrong move would send me splintering off into a thousand pieces. “Is that right?” I manage.

He nods happily, having no idea of my internal turmoil. “About time that Albright girl stopped mooning over Jake Whitmore. That boy is in the wind. Jake’s not ever going to settle down. Heath’s a nice young man and she’s a sweet little thing. I’m happy for them.”

Mentally, I stand them up, side by side, Heath and Kacey. Aaron’s words echo inside my head, “Nice young man, sweet little thing, nice young man, sweet little thing.”

It’s obvious the stark difference between Kacey and me. She’s not the type of girl to fall into bed with. She’s the kind of girl you marry. Not once this past week did shame for sleeping with Heath even enter my mind, until now.

Heath isn’t the first mistake I’ve made in the romance department. That doesn’t mean this blow doesn’t hurt. Before him, somehow, someway, part of me always had an inkling or a whisper of proceeding cautiously. Not with Heath, though. Nope. I was ready to hand him my heart that first night.

For the first time ever I was a hundred percent myself with someone. I was happy and excited, basking in how right we were together. We fit in a way that seemed special.

What happened? I don’t understand. He woke up in my bed yesterday morning.

“Thanks,” I numbly nod and walk away.

Each step sends a painful jolt up my body. Each step reminds me of what I had foolishly ignored our first night together. He was out of my league. It seems a better option was available to him, so he took it.

The chatter at the diner only increases, Heath and Kacey’s name coming at me over and over again like attacking bees. The sting proves to be more than I can handle.

It’s not every day you find out the man you’ve been falling in love with just got engaged to someone else.
