While he may look like the love child of a movie starlet and an NFL linebacker, Ben Langley has the people skills of a half-drowned porcupine. Why socialize when there are chemistry labs and bad sci-fi flicks? If he has any hope of taking the helm as CEO of the family business, Ben needs an image makeover. Pronto.
Enter Holly Colvin, owner of First Impressions public relations and branding firm, and the woman who just saved Ben from the clutches of an over-attentive sales clerk. Holly’s rebranded hundreds of companies in her career, but she’s never rebranded a person. The guy clearly needs help, though, and she’s just the woman for the job.
With the clock ticking for them both, Holly and Ben face off over wardrobe malfunctions and business jargon that sounds a lot sexier than it should. But can Holly make Ben into the man he thinks he should be without losing the man she’s starting to love?

The Fix Up a light, sexy read with two characters that have off-the-charts chemistry together and complement each other. Ben Langley has just been given the helm of his family's company. Ben's problem... he'd much rather be working in the chemistry lab then dealing with people. He can't even fully recognize when a sales clerk is hitting on him (hardcore) over some furniture pieces. But he is rescued by a beautiful woman who pretends to be his wife. She even has the (fake) diamond to prove it. And when she slips him her business card, Ben believes that she can help transform him into the CEO that his father wants him to be. Holly Colvin is used to helping businesses rebrand, but a person: never. But she can see that Ben needs her help in the people department. She needs to teach him about having confidence and being more "alpha" in the boardroom. As Ben gains more confidence in his new CEO position, Holly feels that he is losing what makes him, him. Holly has been burned once by a man completely focused on his own career at the expense of her own. Will she be able to move past her insecurities or will she let Ben go??
