The Fix by Sylvie Stewart is the first book in the Caroline Connections series. This is a fun, romantic novel about Laney Monroe and Nate Murphy. Laney is a 25-year-old single mom trying to balance work, being a mom, and helping her immature brother. Nate has moved back to town to help at his family’s construction business. The two meet when her brother finally decides to go out and get a job. Little does Laney know that her brother getting a job would be such a great decision for her love life as well.
Laney has so much going on in her life except a love life. She is relatable on many levels. She is trying to do the best with what life has given her and be a good mom at the same time. Her brother lives with her since her parents moved out of town. He’s finally got her hints to go out and get a job. In her neighborhood, there is new construction and come to find out it is being built by her brother’s new employer. What will happen when life brings Nate and Laney together?
This is a fun, sexy novel with some great characters. The topics of how to balance family, work, and love is a such a relatable, realistic theme. This is a hard balance to find and sometimes opportunities arise when we least expect them. I enjoyed that the characters had to make decisions that were real and can have a long-term effect on themselves and others in their lives. I am looking forward to reading the second novel by the author.
