Londra, 31 dicembre 1999. Alla festa che saluterà l’inizio del Nuovo Millennio, Hanna incontra Richard. Lui è un affascinante newyorkese con un’ottima posizione sociale. Lei è una londinese sicura di sé e per nulla interessata ai bravi ragazzi americani. Vengono da due mondi diversissimi e non hanno nulla in comune, se non la loro immediata – e reciproca – attrazione. Quan ...more

My Hanna and Richard:


Engaging writing, realistic characters, believable storyline and no insta-love. Fix You is a love story about overcoming hardships and facing consequences of your mistakes; a love story that will touch your heart and stay with you forever. A must-read!



Story starts with prologue, when 29 years old Hanna who comes to her ex-lover Richard's office to tell him this huge secret which she doesn't want to hide anymore. Than, readers are moved back in time so they can see events tha

”It never ends does it? Just when you think the hardest part is over, something else comes up to take its place.”



If there’s one thing I’m grateful of this book it's that it has cured me of my inability to skim. And I’ll probably have to insta-rec this book to anyone with a similar problem because that last 25%, or everything that happens after the introduction of Matty, will put the fear of God in your heart as you watch yourself waste away precious minutes in your life you will never

Fix You charts to course of Richard Larsen and Hanna Vincent's lives, over the passing of 12 years (New Years Eve 1999 to New Years Eve 2012). This is a story that will grab hold of your heart and not let you go until the end of what I have to say is probably the most comprehensive, well written Epilogue I have ever re

Se esta é uma história cheia de clichés? É! Mas eu devo confessar que adoro clichés, sobretudo quando as histórias são bem conduzidas e nos entregam personagens bem construídas, com personalidades cativantes.
Antes de começar a ler esta história, pensei que fosse do género young-adult, mas não a consigo catalogar dessa forma, porque apesar de começar no final da adolescência dos personagens, a verdade é que a história vai se prolongando durante décadas, para mim trata-se de um romance.

My first book by this author. The book starts by giving away the predictable secret which I liked. Then we go back to the beginning to find out what happens. These two chapters live miles apart. Their paths cross but the timing is never right.

Enjoyable read.

In the prologue of Fix You we are introduced to 29yo Hanna confronting Richard in his office. Hanna has something to tell him. She is nervous and scared. She is not sure how he will take this so she just blurts it out.
Flash back 12 years. It’s 31 Dec 1999 and 17yo Hanna meets Richard for the first time. They are immediately smitten with each other and a friendship ensues but with Hanna living in London and Richard in new York it’s little wonder they find it hard to connect.

Estava muito bem mas depressa passou do 80 para o menos -8. 'Caredo' que história mas cliché e previsível. Juro, parecia que estava a ler e resumo uma novela da TVI...

Como tive boas experiências com os romances que a Planeta lançou este ano (cito: ''Sinto a tua falta'' e ''Antes de ires'') dei também uma hipótese a este livro mas as minhas expectativas não foram de todo superadas. Primeiro defeito que encontro é o facto de o livro nem ter 300 páginas mas passam-se '

With that cover, I feared this might be a chick lit with 'zany' characters and zero smut, but happily this was a contemporary romance with an absorbing plot and decent smut so I was glad I gave it the benefit of the doubt. Makes a change from the oiled and chiselled abs that seem to be all over the covers of my most recent reads. Not that I'm complaining or anything.

This was a friends to lovers story told through key events in their lives over 15 years starting from 1999. It h

Meu Deus, que livro bom!
Realmente um livro sobre o amor.
Eles se conheceram em 1999. Hanna, uma adolescente gótica e Richard um cara legal.
Apesar de se sentirem atraídos, a amizade entre eles sempre foi muito forte, muitos anos se passaram até se renderem a paixão.
Ahhh, como se amam! <3
Existe tantos percursos, tantos erros, tantas decepções no caminho deles, mas NUNCA faltou amor.
Após erros e acertos, como está na sinopse, ela engravida e ele não fica sabendo.

Esta foi a minha leitura de estreia com a autora Carrie Elks. Nesta narrativa acompanho o nascimento e crescimento do amor entre Hanna e Richard. Mas como todas as histórias de amor, esta também tem os seus altos e baixos. Não posso dizer que tenha sido um livro que me surpreendeu, mas apesar do esperado, foi um livro de leitura fácil, com personagens cativantes e muito romance à mistura. Viajei constantemente entre Londres e Nova Iorque, o que não é nada mau. É uma leitura leve, bem ao gosto de ...more

Ich hatte eigentlich keine großen Erwartungen an „Kiss you - Gestern, heute und für immer“. Die Kurzbeschreibung klang vielversprechend und passte in mein Lesebeuteschema. Und jetzt nach dem Lesen des Buches hoffe ich sehr, dass es noch viele weitere Bücher der Autorin bald bei uns geben wird. Denn „Kiss you - Gestern, heute und für immer“ war definitiv ein Überraschungshit für mich.

Carrie Elks hat einen sehr angenehmen Schreibstil. Locker und leicht, dabei humorvoll und auch sexy. Ich war mir a

The best thing of being a reader is that we can trust that some writers are going to make us pass through extraordinary experiences.
Yes, I know that I'm not really Hanna, but it's impossible not get lost in her life. Feel like her smiles, fights, sufferings, mistakes and passions are all mine.
Trying to get better. Trying to be better. It's what we try everyday, right?
I could say that she's a normal girl living a normal life and that's the reason I feel her so close to me. But the story makes me

From time to time we find a book that is close to our hearts and has a way to touch your feelings in indescribables ways. Fix You was it for me. I couldn't stop reading it for a second!
It's not only the fact that the plot is amazing, but the way the author used her words to touch us has made all the difference in this book!
The fact that made me love this book so much is not only the love story fact but comparing to the romances books that are out there this one seems real for me, like the charac

Fix You for me its not only a contemporary novel or just a romance. Its a story that relates to my personal life. When I started to read the journey of Richard & Hanna, all the ups and downs, happy and sad moments I went back in time with them and remember every thing that happened over the last years. I was laughing with the turn of the century in 2000, and I was in tears when she described 9/11, honoring not only those who passed but also the ones that survived. This book is about normal p ...more

On a festive New Year's night in 1999, Hanna Vincent, a seventeen-year-old British girl, is corralled into helping her caterer mother at a swanky London party. Her hair battling its natural color versus a deep red, Hanna gamely serves up hors d'oeuvres. The couple throwing the party are kind and welcoming, but what intrigues Hanna most is Mr. Larsen's American son, Richard. He's twenty-one and preparing to finish up school at Columbia. He's also wildly wealthy and sartorially conservati

Fix You is the kind of book you just can stop reading. Carrie Elks can relate real facts with fiction in such a unique way!

Your heart will ache for Richard and Hanna throughout the story...

but you will also have fun with them!

They will face the consequences of their mistakes but will grow with them. Authentic characters! And I must say the Epilogue is one of the best I have ever read!!!

The cover is fitting, as reading this felt like listening to a broken record, stuck on the same "will they,or won't they?" groove.

This story tries WAY too hard trying to capture what appears to be a quasi-nostalgic feeling about the past. It also seems to mimic books like "One Day," but it's unsuccessful in both of those attempts. The narrative and dialogue are just too wordy, and the story feels like it takes forever to progress. Easy to predict, and characters felt cliche and under-developed.

This book is amazing! I tried to come up with words to describe it but it comes in waves. In parts you feel beautifully broken. In others, you're twisted perfection. Carrie Elks knows how to write characters that crawl into your heart and make you literally go through their journey. Fix You is a tale of breaking love and making love. It's not often a writer hits on the realities of the world and mingles it with fiction. Bravo! I highly recommend!

Wow. Wow wowie wow wow. This book was freaking fantastic!

I picked it up thinking it was going to be along the lines of "One Day," and it kind of was, but SO much better! I loved reading Richard and Hanna's story, and I even fell in love with Tom, Ruby, and Matty along the way. This book was extremely well written, and I could NOT put it down! A++++++++

Fantastico.
Un libro bellissimo per una storia bellissima dove il destino e le buone intenzioni sono i veri protagonisti e conducono i personaggi esattamente là dove dovevano essere.
Hanna è una ragazza inglese che ama intensamente le persone della sua vita, fedele, ostinata e leale. Forse solo un po’ troppo credulona...
Richard è un ragazzone americano, ricco e fortunato. Eppure la vita lo trascina e lo sbatte qua e là non meno di Hanna.
Dodici anni dopo sono un uomo e una donna, con un pesante

Engraçado, agora que vim aqui dar este livro como lido percebi que o nome original é Fix you, que é uma música de Coldplay e curiosamente, é também com Coldplay que fecho a opinião a publicar no Efeito dos Livros

It's such a shame for us to part
