The Fix Up by Kendall Ryan

My tempting and very alpha friend Sterling Quinn is someone I consider off-limits.
It's not just that we're friends, he's also cocky, confident, and British, which means he's a walking aphrodisiac.
But lately he's been giving me the look. You know the one. When he thinks I'm not paying attention, and his gaze lingers for too long.
When we start working together, that's when the sexual tension between us gets so thick, I want to hack through it with a machete. I want to make all these deep feelings I've harbored for him disappear, because there's no way this can end well.
The lines between business and pleasure become irrevocably blurred, and I'm stuck between a rock and Sterling's very, very hard place.
Rather than keep a level head about our growing attraction, Sterling wants to go all in, showing me just how explosive we can be together.
But I've been around long enough to know that this British bad boy is more than my heart can handle. I'm not about to be cast aside like yesterday's underwear when he's done having fun.
Sterling’s never been told no, and he's not about to put his ego aside and play by my rules. But I never thought he'd fight so dirty.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
If you’ve read the Hitched series, then you may know Sterling Quinn as Noah Tate’s celebrated bachelor best friend. If you haven’t, let me introduce him to you. Sterling Quinn—one of New York’s top divorce attorneys—is hot, sexy, single, and English. God bless England.
Thanks to a distant relative bequeathing a $50M inheritance, the perpetual bachelor needs to marry within six months or risk losing all the money. 50 million bucks is quite a lot, and Sterling needs it. Women are now flocking to propose to him, so his uncle hires the one person he wants but decided he can’t have to help him find the future Mrs. Quinn.
Another character in Hitched, Camryn Palmer, a PR executive at one of New York’s best marketing and PR firms, believes in true love and happily ever afters. That’s the main reason Sterling won’t sleep with her. Now that she’s been tasked to help Sterling find a wife, hooking up is definitely out of the table… until Sterling realizes he wants her. She needs the money, and if she wants to get it, she’ll have to make sure someone walks down the aisle. It just can’t be her.
In this quick, fun and entertaining alternating POV story, Sterling and Camryn show the extremely sizzling chemistry we got a glimpse of in Hitched. Sterling’s already charming with the English accent, but he’s also irresistible, driven, kind, and so darn sexy. Camryn’s another strong Kendall Ryan female MC––strong, independent, sexy, and intelligent. The two suite each other, and Sterling’s slow and steady seduction was H-O-T!
It’s a marriage trope, so it’s a win for me! And a bit of slow-burn, too. If you’re into that plus strong lead characters, then you might enjoy this baby. I sure did.
