This was a cute read! I enjoyed the details of the h fixing up her house. Noah and Finley were sweet together! Noah didn't come across as a manwhore, but he had been with plenty of women. There were a few mentions of his past with women that I could have done without, but he was all in with Finley as soon as he met her! Noah has some siblings that will probably get books- I really want to read about Asher- he is a mysterious, bearded hottie! I will never read about Gideon- he is a big manwhore!

No need to fix this book up!!!! Carey Heywood nailed it when she delivers one sweet, light, and heartwarming love story that was bursting with all the feels!!! I practically inhaled Fix Her Up in one sitting. How could I not when Heywood brings forth a story that reminded us all that life is truly a journey and when one chapter ends, another begins. And for Finley Reeves, her new life begins knocking one wall at a time.

While I liked this book and the MCs were ok enough for me to like them there's nobody and I mean nobody that can top Asher, Asher was an amazing hero and I loved him and loved Paige too.

I guess I need to say something nice about Noah, let me see what can I say about Noah. 🤔
Noah, Noah was an ok hero? I can say that I liked him enough although he said something that bothered me but that's just me.

Oh and did I mention Asher was awesome? Asher was and will always be my man.

Finley Reeves 35, has bought a money pit in a new town following her divorce. Noah Thompson, 38, is the brother of her realtor and a contractor with a heart of gold.

Being this is romance, Finley’s lucky that her prince charming swoops in to save the day, or in this case her house. I must admit I was initially a little stuck on the premise when she buys this dilapidated house in New Hampshire, far from family and friends, after making “a killing off the place she sold in Texas.” Part of me quest

This book opened up and swallowed me whole. I read through the majority of it in a little less than two days. I love Carey's writing style. She writes these cutey damsel in distress female characters and the strong silent type of males. Finley is a women starting over in a new town and new state she knows nothing about. Noah is the local contractor and his family pretty much runs all the businesses in town, he wants to help her.

Favorite Quotes:

I was expecting her husband to be there, but his presence may have interrupted her attempts to put her hand in my pants. I might not have many rules when it comes to the women I see, but not being married is one of them.

He grins at me before lifting the hem of his shirt to wipe my snot from his face. I sneezed all over the hot guy buying condoms at the convenience store.

I try not to look at him anymore but it’s impossible. He’s too attractive, it would be a disservice not to.

Finley thought that her life would be an HEA but turned out she had married a cheating scoundrel, and now she is freshly divorced and sold everything and is headed to a small town to start fresh. What better way to start anew, than in a house that she has fixed up herself in New Hampshire. Finley had the house inspected and told it's foundation was fine and the house ready to move into, and she brought it in cash over the phone from the town's real estate agent Ashley Thompson.

If Finley Reeves is an expert at anything, it’s making mistakes. She proved this true by falling for and marrying the wrong man. Ten years later all she has to show for it is a divorce... and a broken heart.
Needing not only to get away, but also to start over somewhere new, she buys a fixer upper that’s one step away from being condemned. Deciding to tackle this project alone might be her biggest mistake of all.

This book got me from the beginning! I love how Finley was strong enough to move to a place where she knew no one and planned on renovating an old house into her own all by herself. It shows how a strong womand she is. The way Noah feels for her and wants to be with her and helps her with her house is so beautiful! I love how his family accept her and how they become a family for Finley and take care of each other. Carey Heywood did an amazing job with this book! I can't wait to read more! Thank ...more

The first book in the Fix series, Fix Her Up was a lovely read that I devoured from beginning to end. This is a new to me author too.

Reeling from a bad divorce, Finley Reeves ups sticks and moves across the country and buys a fixer-upper home that she intends to do all herself. However when she arrives at the property she had only previously seen online, she is shocked by the amount of work that needs to be done. When a saviour arrives on her doorstep in the frame of sexy construction man, Noah

This is book 1 in hopefully a new series by Carey Heywood. In this book you are introduced to Noah and Finley or Fin to her friends! Fin has relocated across country all on her own following a 10 year marriage that ended bad and left triple walls up around her heart and a bitter taste and no trust. She bought her house site unseen online because she wanted a “fixer upper”. Well she definitely got that! She had no idea what she was doing or how she was going to do it.

Sissy's Romance Book Review
'Fix Her Up' by Carey Heywood is the First Book in the new series called "The Fix". This is the story of Finley Reeves and Noah Thompson.
Finley is attempting to start over after her divorce and that means a new location with a fixer upper of a older house. Which she plans on doing it all by herself. But she may have bitten of more that she can chew. Then a hot guy name Noah shows up who is her Realtor’s brother. Noah has his own construction company and his somewhat of an Alpha man. Finley who

Finley got divorced after learning her husband had been cheating on her. Desperate for a change, she purchases an older home in another state with dreams of fixing it up and starting over. Noah is a contractor who offers to help Finley with the renovations to her new home. From the moment he sets eyes on Finley Noah wants to help and protect her.

This was such a sweet romantic story. Finley and Noah are both great characters and I enjoyed watching them become friends and then more. Noah's siblin

I swore never to read books in this 'format' ever again, but I'd downloaded this before I realised. The writing was okay actually - and I liked both characters even though they were fairly 2D in this,


NOTHING happened. They met, began renovating Finley's house and of course ended up having sex but there was nothing else. No sense of drama, no tension (unless you consider worrying which colour curtains to buy) nothing to make me bite my lip and wonde

Everyone has heard of love at first sight but for Noah it was love at first sneeze. Although he had to tread lightly with Finley. She was recovering from a failed 10 year marriage. She came to New Hampshire from Texas not knowing anyone ready to start a new life. The last thing she wanted was a relationship. Because of her cheating ex Finley had a hard time with trust. Noah offered to help Finley renovate her house with no strings attached. He never pushed her or forced her to feel anything for ...more

What do you do when your life turns upside down??

You get a divorce, move away from everything and everyone, buy a house you fell in love on the sight and decide to renovate it by yourself even of you don't know the first thing about renovation. That's why we have YouTube right?? Wrong - that's why you have Noah Thompson.

OMG I love this man...L-O-V-E him! I love that he's good with tools and his hands (wink wink). I love how he makes Finley feel even though she thinks he can do better.

This was a nice light-hearted story. A very easy read that brings out all the smiles. Finley moves to a new place to start her life over again after her divorce. When she buys a fixer upper, she wasn’t expecting all the work. But luckily for her, the realtor’s brother Noah decides to help her out. What starts out as a job grows into something more. I really liked how the story played out. The romance wasn’t really rushed and we were able to see the progress of Noah and Finley’s relationship. I r ...more

Carey Heywood's writing captivates me. It's like I'm in a bubble when I read her books. I get completely immersed in the story and the characters. I am hooked by emotion and this author always...always delivers that. Her characters could be you best friends or a family member......they are realistic, with flaws. Finley and Noah stole my heart but so did the rest of the family.

Fix Her Up is a delightful story about the everyday miracle of two people finding each other and falling in love. This is the first book I have read of Carey Haywood's, but I will be adding the rest of her library to my own. I enjoyed every single word.

Wow! This book was such a great story. Finley is recently divorced from an emotionally abusive husband, whom cheated on her the whole marriage. She decides that she wants a fresh new start, one not tainted by her ex. She sells her house in Texas and buys a fixer upper online in New Hampshire.

When she arrives in the new town, she stops at a drug store because she is so sick with a head cold, she needs some medicines. She sees a really good looking man at the register and he turns around and tells

I. Love. This. Book. Fix Her Up brought me back to the writing that I know and love from Carey Heywood. I fell in love with her writing in Him. Fix Her Up is just as amazing.

Finley Reeves is starting over. Completely. Divorced and determined to make it on her own, she movee clear across the country for a brand new lease on life. She also buys a house that should probably be demolished all the way down to the slab. I loved Finely. She's sweet and caring and so down to earth. That is probably my

Fix Her Up was a quick, light read. I really enjoyed the sweet tone of the book and the characters felt like they could have been old friends of mine.
One of my favorite things about Carey Heywood’s books is how familiar her characters. I’ve never felt a disconnect with her characters, as they are all incredibly relatable. It was no different in Fix Her Up. Each character gave me things to root for about them, while still having flaws that made them feel human. I found myself wanting to
