One summer.
Three months.
Ninety days spent learning every inch of Sam Matthews’ body.
We agreed to no strings when our time was up.
We promised we could both handle this.
I lied.

I never expected to fall for this man or this town.
This was just supposed to be a stop on the way to starting my real life.
But now, time is up and everything feels wrong.

He says I’m too young.

Oooo What an enjoyable read!

This is my first book by Miranda Elaine and I really enjoyed it.
Fixing Him was so cute, you guys!

Montana was so funny! I knew I was going to like her from the very first chapter..She was so quirky and fun! She was like a breath of fresh air with her adorable fun- free spirit nature.

Sam is a macho dude through and through.

I loved the easy going pace of the story yet someone you don't realise that you are actually getting quite invested into the characters.

There are some books you read that just feel good. Those are the books that you never want to have end. Those are the books that take ahold of you in their own special way. Those are the books that stick out because of what they bring out in you while you’re reading and the experience they give you as the story unfolds.

It is those kinds of feel good books that I live for. It’s those kinds of books that give me everything. It’s those kinds of books that have me coming back for more of that parti

Miranda Elaine is back with another incredible book surrounding some pretty amazing, unforgettable people and I just couldn't get enough of all of her words. Fixing Him was a beautifully told romance that stung my heart in moments yet left me with the biggest, cheesiest smile in other moments. Miranda totally delivered the best She has to date with this book and in particular these addicting characters.... and you would never be able to tell thisus only her second book ever!

Rate: 4.5 / 5 stars

Sam and Montana were a fun couple. I loved how they met and how they couldn't resist their attraction to one another despite how much Sam fought it. He wanted to stay away from Montana for a great number of reasons but in the end, he just couldn't resist her and it's not like she made it easy on him either. And it was so much fun to watch.

And Kernie added a fun and cute factor to the story too; I adored him. Montana had a little pig for a pet - Kernie - and honestly it was t
3.5 stars

I enjoyed this book. A sweet, fun and sexy romance between a free-spirited, idealistic 22 year old woman and a gruff and serious 31 year old man with a busy life and no interest in commitment.

This is the second book in the Fixing series, and though there is some character crossover, you can easily read this one as a standalone.

The Review:
Fixing Him was a simple, easy to read romance that started as a summer fling and ended with a happily ever after.

This is my second read by this author and as I said after reading her debut book, she’s been added to my must-read list. There’s a good reason for it. It’s tough to find an author you can read and leave, a book or story you can just sit down with
Valeen Robertson (Live Thru Books Blog)

Montana is in town for the summer to have her newly inherited home renovated for sale. She's free-spirited, young and innocent with a voice that instantly calls to the hardest part of Sam's heart. She's just the type to complement Sam perfectly.
"The voice sounds like candy wrapped in rainbows."

He's her new contractor. He's older. He's sorta jaded. And he thinks she's way too young for him. But what if they could just take the summer to have a passionate no-strings fling? Could Montana do i

Fixing Him is the second novel in Miranda Elaine’s Fixing series of standalones. I absolutely loved it, and I love this author’s writing style! Miranda has a definite way with words, and as a new author, she’s already found her voice, and it’s sweet and sultry! Her writing is sharp and engaging, and her second solo novel was well polished, nicely paced and came together into a wholly addictive story that was as full of heart and heat as it was hilarious.

Montana arrives in Lakeside for the summer to renovate and sell her late grandfather’s house. It was left to her and she really doesn’t want to move to the sleepy town permanently but she needs to have some time to herself so why not do it beside a lake.

House by the lake are hot property in this town so when Sam get’s the call to quote on the renovation job he is probably expecting an uptight, wealthy client to meet him. He was not expecting Montana. She is young, beautiful and has no airs or gr

The ending to Fixing Him by Miranda Elaine is perfection! And to get to it, you read through some of the most delightful pages that I have read in quite a while. The second book in the Fixing series is an unquestionable recommendation from me, it was a marvelous read.

Montana is a free spirit who moves through life with her pet pig, Kermie. I adored this character from the moment she was introduced. I think it was the fact that even though she was young, she was just so down to earth level headed

Fixing Him by Miranda Elaine is the second book in the Fixing series, though this can be read as a standalone. Montana has just inherited her grandfather’s cabin. She needs to make some renovations but plans on leaving after its completed. Enter Sam to help with said renovations.

Sam is a good man. He is caring, determined and honest. He also likes his life the way it is. No commitments. Forever is not for him. Montana is ten years younger than Sam but can stand on her own. She is strong and det

This is my first Miranda Elaine ARC... I signed-up because the blurb got me curious and excited.

I thought it was going to be one of those serious taboo-romance... but contrary to my initial assumption their age difference isn't that huge... well to me at least.

In my opinion, I think a good 10yr gap is acceptable as long as you're not in your teens anymore... And in reference to the female protagonist, Montana, she was already 22 and already had a nursing degree... so she is already capable of m

A summer fling or something so much more?
Sam Matthews isn't the kind of guy who is looking for something deep and meaningful with the women he hooks up with... his only interest is carnal and with instant gratification. But when the young, vibrant, carefree and free spirited Montana hires him to update her grandfather's cabin, Sam finds himself breaking all the barriers he had set up his entire life due to fear. This crazy, sassy, young woman has managed to take root inside his head... a place n

This is my first book from this author and I LOVED IT!!! It’s a feel good book with comedy and romance all rolled up into one amazing package. Montana and Sam are perfect for each other! Montana may be young in Sam’s eyes but she has more heart than anyone he knows. She is hysterical and her every daily life is never boring. She is the perfect balance to Sam who is drowning in responsibility. Throw in some crazy family and friends to the mix and you have a book that keeps you on your toes!

“I spent the summer convincing her I could live without her. Making her believe that a relationship with her would be a burden on my life and not letting on to the truth. The truth that every second I spent with her was the best moments I’ve had in as far back as I could remember.”

Montana is a young woman who has just inherited from her grandfather, a property in a privileged and elitist location. Living a careless and itinerant lifestyle with her family, her new reality is a sudden change in he
Verna Loves Books
Fixing Him by Miranda Elaine is such an emotional, sweet romance. I loved every minute of it. This is one of those books that tugs at your heart and leaves you soaring by the end of the book.

Sam Matthews' character is charming, sexy, and all in all a fantastic man. I loved him instantly and couldn't help but grow to love him more. He is used to always sacrificing what makes him happy to make sure those he loves are taken care of. I loved how charismatic he was and that you could always count on

I could NOT put this book down once I started it!!! We previously met Sam, best friend and coworker to Kane in Fixing Her (also an amazing story with a fantastic couple). Sam is not looking for any sort of relationship, he just does not have time. He is the man everyone can count on to be there for them and is the ultimate selfless caretaker (as well as ladies man when he feels like it, but only for one night per lady). Well, when he winds up thrown into the path and life of Montana, a yo

Fixing Him is the second book in the Fixing series and so my favorite, which is crazy to say because I loved the first book! This author has a way of having you feeling things right alongside these characters so you find yourself smiling, laughing, and swooning right with Montana and Sam.

Sam is a hard working man with the weight of the world of his shoulders. He is extremely hard working and loyal to those he lets in. He gets by on one night stands and feels he doesn’t have time in life for a f

Fixing Him is a mixed bag of romance tropes. We get contemporary, romantic comedy, coming of age, new adult, older man/younger woman, a bit of steamy fun, and small town romance all terrifically blended with an emphasis on lighthearted romantic comedy. While the story does feel a little drawn out given the low angst level, it is filled with wonderful characters and witty dialogue, including Montana's inner dialogue which is the source of several chuckles along the way. I love that even though Sa ...more

Review by Tatia:

This is my first time reading anything by this author. It was a super easy read that I enjoyed.
Montana arrives at the lake house to fix it up and sell it. Her grandfather left it to her but it needs work to fit in with all of the others in the neighborhood. She never expected the foreman on the job to be so attractive. Despite her best efforts though, he continues to turn down her advances. He must be a saint because she’s giving it her best. Feelings start to get involved and b

I adored Fixing Him....Sam was such a lovable/likable guy. He’s focused on his life and what he needs to do....that is until Montana enters it and oh boy!!!! Sam and Montana together are the perfect couple, they compliment each other and I loved that.

And I can’t write the review without mentioning Kermie!!!! I want him!!!!!

The writing was beautiful!!! Ms. Elaine wrote a few passages that just struck me and they are highlights for me:

Not what I expected!!! Fixing him by Miranda Elaine has awed me with this exceptionally written, sexy and funny story. I couldn't stop reading once I started.

Montana thought that one summer spent renovating a lake house that was left to her would be a short yet wonderful experience. She certainly didn't see a Sam in her future, the sexy older man that sets out to help win her over and her make her swoon. The two had an instant spark but even after trying to resist the temptation was to much. The

Miranda did a great job writing this. I loved the the pace it went at. Montana is bright and free character and her inner thoughts had me laughing out loud several times. Kermie won my heart though. Overall it was a great read.

Fixing Him is book 2 in the Fixing series and you do not need to read each book to understand this story. This is my first book by this author and in the series. While it appears that the characters are interconnected you are never felt like a piece of the story is missing. Though I will say is it a requirement that the men who work for Kade Construction must be hot?! The pictures we get in our heads of these characters has you wanting to break things and hoping that you can speed dial this cons ...more

Fixing Him is the second book in the Fixing Series by a newbie author, Miranda Elaine. Book One, Fixing Her, came out in June of 2018 and Fixing Him came out in December of 2018. Both are connected through characters but are stand-alone books. At this point, I have only read Fixing Him but that will be remedied very soon! Let me tell you a little bit about Sam and Montana.
