The Review: 
Fixing Him was a simple, easy to read romance that started as a summer fling and ended with a happily ever after.

This is my second read by this author and as I said after reading her debut book, she’s been added to my must-read list. There’s a good reason for it. It’s tough to find an author you can read and leave, a book or story you can just sit down with and have fun. Don’t get me wrong. I love the deeply angsty books. I love the heartwrenching, soul-crushing, books. But sometimes, I just want a solid romance with a good story that doesn’t sink me into the “feels” firmament. A book that makes me smile or laugh or come away feeling like I connected to real characters I could share a journey with for a little while. This is that kind of read. Light, fun and sexy.

Just like Miranda Elaine’s first book, Fixing Her, this book was full of romance, quirky and enjoyable characters that had heart and were easy to connect with, and a solid story I thoroughly enjoyed. Montana and Sam were sexy and entertaining. They weren’t overly dramatic nor were they deeply scared, so this read was witty, romantic and filled with a lighthearted story I was hooked on from the moment I opened the book until the second I finished the last page.

Montana Rhodes has just inherited her estranged grandfather's lake house. She’s had an unusual upbringing, traveling around from place to place with her parents and her twin brother, she’s never settled down in one place for very long. Thinking she’ll sell the lake house and move on, she hires a sexy contractor to help her get things in order, but the temptation to have a summer fling with the hammer-wielding god is too much to resist. It’s just the summer, so why not, right?

Sam Matthews is the foremen for Kade Construction. He’s had a rough life but is surrounded with good friends he’d in return do anything for. He’s trying to move up in the Kade business and he takes care of his paralyzed father who was involved in an accident years before. He doesn’t have much time for anything personal and loss has made him wall up his heart and vow to stay a bachelor for the rest of his life. That all seems to change the moment the young, blond bombshell hires him to fix her lake house. All his walls can’t seem to keep her from breaking right through them. It’s only for the summer, right? Why not...

I really enjoyed Montana. She was flirty, outgoing yet shy and animated to the point of being sort of hilarious. She liked to live free, with a joyous outlook which half the time landed her in the most ridiculous situations.

Sam was a brooder ... and a ladies man. He liked to bed them and forget them. He thinks his life is too complicated for commitment, too filled up with caretaker responsibilities to add more to it. I love that he learns that love doesn’t have to be a responsibility, but a treasure and a relief if you’re with the right person.

Montana’s openness and carefree spirit was a direct contrast to Sam’s closed off gloom. Together, she teaches him to live and love and he teachers her stability and roots. I loved it!

And we have to talk about their chemistry. This author is getting better and better at writing those tummy tingling scenes that just make you smile and fan yourself at the same time. Whoohoo! And I can’t close this review without mentioning the side characters. I loved them all, including Kermie who sometimes stole the show!

The Wrap Up: 
Fixing Him had a well-written story with connectable characters and a plot that wasn’t entwined with drama overload. I enjoyed the returning characters from Fixing Her and the insights into their continuing lives.

As a side note, this is read as a standalone and you don’t need to read Fixing Her first to follow along with this one. However, I suggest it because it was really good.
