When we were younger, Temperance Price was the quiet girl with dreamy eyes who hung on my every word. She was always beautiful, but I had plans to get out of Red Oak and make a life of my own.

Ten years later, a crushing tragedy has brought me home again—right back to her.

The innocent girl I left is gone, and in her place is a sassy single mom I can’t get out of my head.

Fixing Her is the debut novel by Miranda Elaine. I know Miranda as one half of the hilarious writing duo, Liberty Laine!

When Asher Kade was in high school, he was “that guy” that all the girls noticed, especially Temperance Price, who was a couple of years younger than he was. He knew she had a huge crush on him and to be honest, he had one on her as well. But Asher had big plans for his life. He wanted to get out of the small town he grew up in, Red Oak, get a college degree in architecture an

I wouldn’t call this a second chance romance, but it started well and I was engaged and smiling. Asher Kade was about two years older than shy and quiet Temperance Price; she had a massive crush on him, in high school, even as she thought he never noticed her. Boy was she wrong, Asher felt a strong attraction to her, but knowing he wanted to leave their small town as soon as he graduated, he kept away – which was pretty decent (he does throw her

This is a second chance romance.
And this is those book where the h needs a kick from her friend to get her love life roaring. Ugh..
H was h’s crush in high school. He also liked her. But didn’t act on it because he didn’t want to break her heart as his plans were to go out of town. After some 10 years he is back and now he owns his father’s construction company. The h is now a single mom. She is still shy around the H.

What I hated was the way the h’s friend try to bring them together. At first

What a DEBUT for Miranda Elaine!!! Fixing Her is an amazingly beautiful and emotional love story!

Temperance and Asher were captivated for one another in high school. He was well aware of her crush, and was just and intrigued by her, but different life goals – and a very driven man, lol – took him out of their small town for ten years. Now back after being distant for so long, when he first gets a glimpse of Temperance he’s under her shy and sweet spell. But Temperance i

Temperance had a huge crush on Kade Asher all through high school. He was a few years ahead of her but she enjoyed admiring him from afar, knowing that she would never have a chance with a guy like him.

In high school, Kade was focused on graduating and getting the heck out of town. His father owned a construction company and there was no way he was going to work for him and be tied down to his home town for life. He wanted to see the world and experience everything he could.

Fixing her is Miranda Elaines debut, and wow has she set the bar high for future books or what!

I was Captivated and enthralled by the end of chapter four. Temperance affectionately known as Tempie is just adorable and so realistic in her lifestyle.

A Whirlwind of chaos and stains had me chuckling along and nodding "yup yup I've had days like that" and that is what I loved about this book I was able to connect and sympathise with each and every situation that cropped up in her average morning.

I do love a good single parent romance and toss in the whole high school crush thing into the mix and I’m pretty much sold and Fixing Her was all kinds of sweet, sassy, funny and smexy with a nice little twist added in to give the story that punch of drama to keep you on your toes.

Temperance, I loved. She is a single mom doing all she can to give her daughter a good life and she handles the ups and downs that come with it as best as she can. She’s swe

This book. Oh my god. SO FREAKING GOOD! I can’t word anymore, my brain is still full of all the warm fuzzy feelings I have from reading this. Fixing Her is sweetness on top of feels on top of cuteness and I swear I might just explode from how happy reading this made me. Between the heart warming romance with Asher and Temperance and Temperance’s adorably sassy daughter there wasn’t a moment where I didn’t love everything about this book.

Gurlll I laughed, cried and swooned all things about Asher and Temperance!!! These two were such a hoot and Temperance's daughter just about stole the show!! OMG this little girl was such a doll and a funny little shit!!! haha

Asher and Temperance went to school together. Asher was a bit older but boy did Temperance have the HOTS for him!! After graduation, he moved away, she stayed in town.

If you were to tell me that this was Miranda's debut novel, I would say you were the biggest liar. It seemed as though she'd been writing forever. Honestly, this book was well written and such an easy read. It flowed effortlessly with likable characters I couldn't get enough of. Definitely will be reading more by this author.

The blurb is not appealing to me. I hate it when they come back many years later and ask for a second chance. And I hate it even more when they are given the chance.

Oh, please ignore me; second-chance is not my cuppa. Go for it if it is yours...

I can't believe this is the debut novel by Miranda!  This was such a well written, lovely story. 

This is the story of Temperance and Asher.  And it started for them in high school.

I could really relate to Temperance when she was in high school. The shy, quiet type, loving the popular boy from afar.  I was impressed by the fact that Asher, when in high school, chose what he did.  It showed maturity.

Forward ten years later and the two of them are back in each other's worlds again.  But with the ye

I enjoyed this sweet single parent romance . Temperance was a likeable character , she was insecure with herself at times. I was happy to see Asher didn't give up on winning her heart. Ellie was adorable , you never knew what that tiny chatterbox would tell you. Sam and Leigh were great secondary characters. ...more

Fixing Her is Miranda Elaine’s solo debut novel, and I am in love with this author’s sweet, sultry storytelling style! I always give a new indie author a lot of leeway with their debut novels, but I didn’t need to do that here. Miranda’s writing is crisp and engaging, brimming with endearing characters and a slow burn romance that was so addictive, I had a hard time putting my Kindle down.

Fixing Her is Miranda's first book ever and it honestly didn't show. She wrote fluently and her words were so so good. She came up with two characters who were meant to be and there was no doubt there.

Temperance was a strong single mom who would do anything for her sassy little girl. But she's also very shy and self-conscious. When the guy she always had a crush on comes back to town, she reverts back to the young girl who was crushing and lusting after Asher Kade; the girl w

I really enjoyed this book! I was intrigued by the blurb and couldn’t wait to dive in. It was fun, it was sexy, and at times, it squeezed my heart. I am so glad I took a chance on this new-to-me author!

Temperance (Tempie) is a hot mess most days and I could totally relate! She is a single mom and I immediately felt a connection to her. One of the things I loved most about this book - it’s real, and makes you say, yes, that has happened to me!

I’m giving Fixing Her 3.75 stars, not bad at all for this authors debut novel. Well edited, sweet story, of a single young mom (Temperance) just trying to survive her day to day life. I laughed a few times at her devilish little girl, actually every page with her daughter warmed my heart, especially when she was with Muffin AKA Asher. Lol
My issue with this story is it seemed to drag a lot. There was a bunch of times I felt the information given was repeated or their inner monologue was over don

Fixing Her by Miranda Elaine is a sweet, hilarious, and swoonworthy friends to lovers romance that I loved every single word of. From the very start of this book I was completely swept up into the magic, feels, fun, and unforgettable moments these characters were sharing. Temperance and Asher, and all of the other incredible characters of this book, made me smile, made me laugh, made my heart go pitter patter through every page, and I truly can’t say enough how much I enjoyed that.

Miranda Elaine's debut novel Fixing Her is filled with emotion and nostalgia. A second chance story in a way, Temperance and Asher wait a long time to finally let their feelings be known.

Temperance was the shy, quiet girl in high school. One of many girls with a secret crush on Asher. A crush that doesn't go anywhere but years later is still there.

Asher has always wanted Temperance, but he had goals. Mainly to leave his hometow

This was an incredible debut novel from author Miranda Elaine!

In high school, Temperance Price was always the quiet girl who crushed on the popular athlete from afar, but never had the guts to do anything about it.

Years later, she’s older and a single mother, but she’s still the shy girl from before. She’s not prepared to come face-to-face with the man of her dreams. The guy she thinks never knew she existed.
