If you're looking for an enemies to lovers holiday read, look no further than The Christmas Fix.

Catalina King is a fixer-upper turned reality tv star. She's a hard worker and is always trying to use her fame for the good of others. She's determined to get her network to do a holiday special to help a town that really needs it. The town of Merry was hit hard by a storm and needs all the help it can get. Noah is the city manager and isn't thrilled with this idea. He's known for being a

I also had Mr Fixer Upper (book 1) on my KU shelf. I decided to read The Christmas Fix first. Cuz Christmas & I'm such a curious person... and I won this book!
I love this trope. Enemies to lovers. I have't read book 1 yet, so I got a reminder of how the H, Noah & the h, Cat met. I was told that they-- uh had hate at first sight.
Noah is NOT an A-hole. He's not. He just... "wound up too tight" as Cat puts it.

I loved this book! Lucy Score is one of my favorite authors and for good reason--she's once again written a story that has snappy dialogue, compelling characters, sizzling sexual tension and an intriguing story line. Cat is an empowered, bad-ass heroine. Noah is smart, nerd-sexy and a wonderful father. Their connection is real and based on growing mutual respect and admiration (after a period of sexy AF enemies-to-lovers banter). Their desire to do good for their communities is amazing. There is ...more
4.5 Stars!

Another fantastic read by this new to me author! I can't wait to read everything she has to offer. Her writing reminds me of some of my favorite authors, Jill Shalvis, Susan Elizabeth Philips and Jennifer Crusie. Yet, she has her own unique style! She writes funny, heartwarming stories, with characters that have depth, and as a reader you become attached to them, you want to live in their world.

I came upon her book, Heart of Hope, while searching for some holiday reads. It was awesom

Fun-filled and Fabulous Read!
The Christmas Fix is an enemies to lovers story with heat, emotion, humor, and Christmas magic! Lucy Score writes characters with depth, complexity, and humanity.
Catalina "Cat" King is the type of heroine that I aspire to be in real life. I love her confidence, self awareness, determination, philanthropic nature, and giving heart. I also love that she gives no "funks" about how people try to put her in a box. She doesn't fit in a box and she uses any underestimation
4 hammer tattoo stars!

I would have loved to have been a part of the rebuilding of the small town of Merry! How could you not fall in love with the small town that is recovering from a devastating flood?

Cat is an extremely hard-working business owner with a heart of gold. Always finding ways to help others out. She's never worried about doing the hard work needed and getting her hands dirty. I loved her work ethic, though she really needs to delegate more and not have the weight of the world on h

It's the most wonderful time of the year . . .

Back on track with another wonderful holiday story to add to my Twelve Days of Christmas books-on-review list.

A jolly good time! Lucy Score totally sleighed it with great writing, a terrific enemies-to-lovers plotline and two distinctively different people who can’t fight their attraction to each other. Naughty or nice? Well, this one is a bit hotter with more sizzling details than some of the other choices. Santa gets a little naughty this go-r

I have started and stopped writing this review so many times now because I keep hoping that adequate words will somehow flow from my brain to my fingers and onto the page. It hasn’t happened yet and I am disappointed in myself and with my inability to convey how unbelievably amazing this book is. I don’t know how I can continue to be surprised each time Lucy Score outdoes herself. And she *does* outdo herself. Time after time. She is an artist, and words are her medium.

I really enjoyed this about a home improvement reality show star and producer who sets out to repair a town devastated by flooding in time for Christmas. She has to go head to head with the town’s financial planner who questions her every move. This is funny, heartfelt and steamy, and I really love Lucy Scores writing style. The heroine Cat, was introduced in another book, Mr Fixer Upper, which I didn’t know about before I started this, so now I need to check out that one. I recommend this enter ...more

Cat King is the most kick-ass heroine ever! I loved her in Mr. Fixer Upper and was so happy that she got her own book. This book is a stand-alone so Mr. Fixer Upper doesn't have to be read before diving into this one. Catalina is smart, competent, successful, and beautiful. She may have a few too many irons in the fire, but then again, if you want something done right you have to do it yourself. She doesn't do long-term relationships because she is moving around most of the year for her home imp ...more

Cat is the star of a reality TV show that rebuilds homes for deserving people (think Extreme Makeover, Home Edition). She's an unapologetically modern woman, brash, powerful, accustomed to getting her way. She knows she's gorgeous and she uses that to advance her agenda. Noah is the city manager standing between her and her latest project. He is a single dad, straight-laced, cautious and stubborn, and completely intransigent when it comes to Cat and her plan to fix his hurricane-ravaged town. A ...more

It takes a very special author to make me love an enemies to lovers story. Lucy Score is that author. Instead of hating one or both of the main characters, I loved them both with a fiery passion. The reader is given so many beautiful glimpses into the hearts and souls of both of the main characters I truly was smitten with both of them. There are so many emotional moments for Cat and Noah, independently and together I wouldn’t even know where to start to explain. Their story is one of the best I ...more

I absolutely loved this story!!! One of the best enemies to lovers romances that I have ever read!! I adored Cat - she was a strong, independent woman who didn't put up with other's crap. Especially Noah's. He definitely judged a book by it's cover and didn't give Cat much of a chance to show him who she really was. Once they started working together to help rebuild Merry, CT.....sparks flew and it was inevitable that they were going to get together. So much chemistry and passion between them... ...more

Can I just shout it once again how much I love Lucy Score? Last year she wowed me with several of her books, this one popped up in an ad and I clicked on it and then proceeded to devour it one yummy bite at a time. Normally I’m not a huge fan of enemies to lovers romances, but this one worked and worked well. These two prove there’s a very thin line between love and hate and learning to move past those first assumptions can sometimes lead you to the best thing in your life.

I've been looking forward to this story since I finished reading Mr. Fixer Upper and The Christmas Fix more than delivered.

This is the story of Catalina (Cat) King, Gannon's fun loving twin sister, and Noah Yates, city manager and uber serious single dad. Noah finds it difficult to trust a reality TV star to help rebuild his town after a devastating storm; he remembers her as the reckless celebrity who caused havoc and broke a guy's nose. Noah fears her influence on his daughter and that she's t

I loved it! Really, I wanted to know what happened after Gannon left the show and Cat was on her own. She is an amazingly strong willed character that I cannot imagine was willing to not have her story written. Finding Noah Yates to be her foil was spectacular! He seemed to be her opposite and yet in so many ways they were similar.

You cannot go wrong picking up a Lucy Score book! She writes the kind of romance that always feels like a pick me up. Her books make you happy. 😊
Prickly City Manager meets a nearly perfect HGTV-ish star in this enemies-to-lovers Christmas story. I'm such a sucker for that trope!

The chemistry was great and the love/hate atmosphere between the two really sizzled. My only complaint was that Cat came across to me as HGTV Barbie. She was just too perfect.

A Christmas Read that I highly recommend.

After a bit of a slow burn start this holiday romance turned out to be one that I loved. If enemies -to-lovers is your kind of read, this book is for you. The Christmas Fix was a festive read that was packed with sizzle, heat and a lot of heart. Recommended. I've already downloaded my next read from Lucy Score.

Not enough stars!!!!!

You have GOT to read this book! The first Lucy Score book I read was Mr Fixer Upper, which was about the twin brother of Cat, the heroine in this book. I got hooked on the author’s smart, funny, sarcastic and romantic style.
There is so much to enjoy in this book, but the best is the strong, smart and unapologetic Cat who learns (while trying to teach Noah a lesson for underestimating her) that it's OK to lean sometimes and if you give a little, you might just get it all!

Love finds you when you least expect it, enemies to friends

Cat King is a multi tasker; come to save the town of Merry and find unexpected love with Noah Yates all by Christmas. I love a good book that delivers a happily ever after, and Lucy Score definitely does that with this story. Favorite line in book that sums it up for me is when Noah tells Cat , "You're the color in a gray day."

If you’ve read Mr. Fixer Upper (and if you haven’t, what on earth are you waiting for?!?!), you probably already love Cat King. I know I did. As soon as I finished Mr. Fixer Upper, I had a list of characters I was hoping for more from (Sorry, Lucy. I have to be honest!). Cat was at the top. She was so full of life. She worked hard and played just as hard. She stood up for what she believed in. She was a great friend and loved her family dearly. How much more could you ask for in a c

First let me say that Lucy Score is in my top 3 of always-buy, can’t-one-click-fast-enough authors. I’m always excited when I see a new book from her. Now for full disclosure, I’m NOT a fan of Christmas. So while I was so very excited for a Lucy Score book, a small part of me was “uuugghhhh…a Christmas book”. After reading this book I must confess…it’s so good that it put this Grinch in the Christmas Spirit with Cat and Noah’s story.

This is such a sweet, heartwarming, sexy story. Noah is a sing

I waited and waited for this book and had I not had an important work function on release day, I would have taken a vacation day to read it starting at midnight. Although this is a stand-alone, I encourage everyone to also read Mr. Fixer Upper which is the story of Cat and her hot and handy brother, Gannon, and how he met his now wife, Paige.

Catalina King is a smart, driven woman who happens to be the queen of construction reality shows. She's beautiful, hardworking, and a a pain in Noah Yates' behind. Noah is the city manager for Merry, Connecticut, a town that has taken a hard hit from a late fall hurricane. Noah is not about to let some television personality turn his town's disaster into reality TV ratings, even though she's promising the annual Merry Christmas Festival can be saved.

I am completely in love with Cat's story. Cat is a high powered woman who not only stars in her realty show, but really has her hands in everything about the show. She is now wanting to do so much more with her life and she has no time for relationships.

Noah lives in Merry and doesn't want Cat's group to come back and help clean up the after math of the storm that has left the town under water. He doesn't want the town to be under a microscope. He resents everything about Cat and her show.

Noah is a divorced father, city manager and the man known as Mr. No. Noah lives in the small town of Merry, Connecticut that has just experienced a hurricane right before their tourist season with no extra funds to recover in time for Merry's annual Christmas Festival.
