REVIEW + EXCERPT: Fix You by Carrie Elks

Fix You by Carrie Elks

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release date: February 12th 2014

Purchase: Amazon USAmazon UK


"Richard, we had a baby."

31st December 1999. Seventeen-year-old Brit, Hanna Vincent, meets New Yorker, Richard Larsen; a Columbia student and step-son of scion Leon Maxwell. Divided by wealth, distance and a common language, an unconventional friendship grows between the two.

From London to New York, from 1999 to 2012, Fix You follows the story of quirky, music-loving Hanna and handsome, driven Richard as they fall in love and are torn apart. Their tempestuous relationship leads to an explosive revelation that threatens to destroy them both.

Emotional and touching, this is a story of second chances. Is their shattered love beyond repair?

Fix You is a stand-alone novel.
My Hanna and Richard:

* 5 STARS * Review:

Engaging writing, realistic characters, believable storyline and no insta-love. Fix You is a love story about overcoming hardships and facing consequences of your mistakes; a love story that will touch your heart and stay with you forever. A must-read!

Story starts with prologue, when 29 years old Hanna who comes to her ex-lover Richard's office to tell him this huge secret which she doesn't want to hide anymore. Than, readers are moved back in time so they can see events that had happened prior to this moment...

17 years old Hanna doesn't have the best relationship with her father so instead of enjoying the luxuries of high society, she lives ordinary life in London with her beloved mother. But her life and future changes the moment she agrees to help her mum with New Year's Eve party at Larsen's Residence...

This epic story covers period of 12 years. It held my 100% attention from the beginning to the end. I couldn't put it down, I couldn't stop thinking about it and it became one of my all time favourite stories, the one I will never forget. I loved it!

I enjoyed Hanna's humour and free-spirit and I felt in love with Richard's kind and self-sacrificing character. There were many other great characters who made this story unique but Richard and Hanna were definitely in the spotlight.

Fix You deals with some serious issues as well as ordinary human problems. Some parts were extremely sad and depressive, others were very emotional and my heart broke couple of times for the main characters. Reality was not making it easy for Richard and Hanna and their lives were full of drama and serious problems. This story will consume you and you definitely should read it. Author has beautiful way with words and I cannot recommend this story enough!
