Review: The Fixer

The Fixer The Fixer by HelenKay Dimon
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was a bit different from anything I can remember reading lately and I liked it. I'm new to this author but you better believe I'll be reading more of her work after this. This book was an interesting mix of contemporary and suspenseful romance, with a dash of mystery and intrigue thrown in. The blurb actually gives a pretty good idea of what the story is about, which I greatly appreciated.

He’s known only as Wren. A wealthy, dangerously secretive man, he specializes in making problems disappear. A professional fixer, Wren hides a dark past, but his privacy is shattered when Emery Finn seeks him out—and what she wants from him is very personal.

Some people disappear against their will. Emery’s job is to find them and bring closure. Wren is the only person who can help solve Emery’s own personal mystery: the long-ago disappearance of her cousin. Just tracking down the sexy, brooding Wren is difficult enough. Resisting her body’s response to him will prove completely impossible.

Anonymity is essential to Wren’s success, yet drawn by Emery’s loyalty and sensuality, he’s pulled out of the shadows. But her digging is getting noticed by the wrong people. And as the clues start to point to someone terrifyingly close, Wren will have to put his haunted past aside to protect the woman he loves.


What I liked:
* Wren. His character development was on point. I loved the mystery that surrounded him and the quirks of his personality that highlighted his uniqueness. This man had a heart of gold for those he allowed admittance to his circle and the lengths he was willing to go to for Emery were admirable. He was, by far, my favourite character of this story and I loved every bit of his POV. The parts about his past, how he came to be the man he was, everything about him commanded my respect.
* the suspenseful elements. I love when an author leaves me guessing until the last possible minute!
* the writing, of course. The author sucked me in with her writing. The way she wove this tale kept me interested and in an almost perpetual state of anxiety.

What I didn't like:
* I liked Emery well enough. She was strong, determined and opinionated. What I didn't like was how abrasive she could be. There were points where I felt as if I were suffering through her POV.
* I've heard that this author's books can be quite erotic but that was missing in this one for the most part. There were some steamy scenes but not to the level that my expectation levels were built up to.

Overall, I thorougly enjoyed the plot and couldn't help but fall for the mysterious Wren.
