I had this on my on my KU shelf & then won it on Facebook. YAY me
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

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

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. For this is no mere ...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 ...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 ...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

Christmas Fix is the reader requested second book to Mr. Fixer upper. It is a standalone book about Catalina (Cat) King the twin sister of our Hero Gannon King from Mr. Fixer upper. It takes place a few years after Mr. Fixer Upper, so we do get a little peak at what Gannon and Paige are up to now!

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

As I write this I am happily going to add my name to the list of five star reviews! 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. I loved it so much that I am one of the hundreds of Lucy fans who ...more

I love me a good enemies-to-lovers, add some rom/com and I a fan! This is my first Lucy Score book. Before you ask me to hand over my reading card, I am rectifying this immediately. I have heard of this author and even am in her readers group. But you know, I had so much other things on my reading plate, but now that I do have the time, I can actually finally get to some recommendations from my book friends.

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

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

As always if you are not reading a Lucy Score book you are missing one hell of a good book. That is exactly what The Christmas Fix is. If you love enemies to lovers then you need Cat and Noah in your library now! 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. That is until ...more

I have been waiting to read about the man who thinks he could tame Cat King since Lucy Score’s last book Mr. Fixer Upper. Well, she finally met her match with Noah Yates! Cat returns to a town (where she and her brother did a reality television renovation for a family) after a disastrous flood threatens to ...more

Amazingly written! Lucy Score does it again.
This story is so good. It gave me all the feels. Cat, Gannon' s sister from Mr fixer upper, gets her own story. This is a enemy to lovers happy ending. Cat wants to help the town of Merry, after a terrible storm but she has to deal with the a$$hat city manager who doesn't like her from day one. Noah takes care of Merry and is very hesitant to have any outsiders come in and take advantage of their town. Noah is a rules man and Cat lives in the moment.

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.

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."

This was a heartwarming, charming, funny, and sexy read. The main characters were a blast to follow. The story ended well but I still wanted it to go in forever. I couldn't get enough of the characters and the charming town of Merry.

The Christmas Fix is steamy, sweet and down right funny. Cat and Noah make sparks fly whenever they are together, whether they are fighting, flirting or testing out the dining room table.

I absolutely adored Cat. She is confident, sassy and yet so sweet. She is a tireless worker, wanting to bring Christmas back to Merry after a devastating hurricane. She refuses to take no for an answer. I loved Noah after getting to know him and understanding his back story. He is known as Mr. No so of course

I love how real Lucy's characters are and paired with a great storyline, makes the Christmas fix another fantastic read!
After Mr fixer upper I couldn't wait to read more from Cat and loved her and Noah.

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.

My bar is always set high for a Lucy Score book, and somehow she always sets it higher for herself. As this story unfolded it quickly became my new favorite Lucy story.
Cat King is everything I want my daughters to be. Her story radiates with her essence of determination, inclusiveness, strength, diversity, warmth, and hard work. Cat is a steadfast woman with an exact plan for her life. When she follows her heart for yet another project, she meets Mr. No. He isn't impressed with her wildly ways

I love holiday stories and I love Lucy Score books! When you put both of them together it is my perfect Christmas! I have been wanting Cat’s story since her twin brother Gannon’s book. And boy did this author give us her story. You learned so much about her and so much about Noah and the town of Merry. This read was fun, emotionally fulfilling, steamy and sexy! The perfect read for a cozy night by the fire. Just have some water handy, you might need to cool down!

I’ve been a fan of Lucy Score for awhile now and she hasn’t disappointed me. This new book is a sequel of Mr. Fixer Upper, so if you read Gannon and Paige’s story, get ready for Cat’s story now. If you didn’t read Mr. Fixer Upper, it won’t ruin much for you.
This book is a funny enemy-to-lovers story. Noah is serious single father trying to rebuild his town after some natural disasters and Cat wants to help him but he’s a little dubious of her methods. Their interactions are

Lucy Score does it again with this Christmas Rom-Com. We are reintroduced to Cat, the sister of Gannon from Mr. Fixer Upper, as she comes to rescue Christmas for a flood ruined Merry despite the scrooginess of mayor, Noah Yates.

This was a fun light read while getting ready for the holiday season and I LOVED hearing updates on the whole King family and seeing such a strong woman heroine in Cat. I wish I knew Cat in real life, as a character she is so driven both for herself and such a strong

Great romance

This was a great romance, with a great hea.
The problem, for me, was the length. There is no real need for a romance to drag on as long as this one does. It was a basic guy meets girl, they fall in love, etc. In other words, a romance.
It just seemed to go on and on forever, and a Sunday.
I skimmed a lot, just trying to move it along. (I hate giving up in the middle of a story.) I did read to the end. In my opinion, it was a great romance. But it could have been fabulous, had it been

This is a follow on from Mr Fixer Upper a brilliant enemies to lovers book.

This starts in a similar vein with Cat butting heads against the city manager Noah but then attraction creeps in, they try to hide it but get swamped by desire.

I love that everyone knows what's happening but Cat and Noah think it's a big secret, so many bits made me laugh.

Beautifully read too.

I wonder if there are more about this team...

I loved this story so much. It was a slow burn enemies to lovers romance. Perfect for the holidays or anytime. I enjoyed every moment of it and would read an entire series about Noah, Cat and the town of Merry.
