Review: FIXED ON YOU by Laurelin Paige

Stalking and restraining orders are a thing of Alayna Wither’s past. With her MBA newly in hand, she has her future figured out—move up at the nightclub she works at and stay away from any guy who might trigger her obsessive love disorder. A perfect plan.

But what Alayna didn’t figure on is Hudson Pierce, the new owner of the nightclub. He’s smart, rich, and gorgeous—the kind of guy Alayna knows to stay away from if she wants to keep her past tendencies in check. Except, Hudson’s fixed his sights on her. He wants her in his bed and makes no secret of it.

Avoiding him isn’t an option after he offers a business proposition she can’t turn down and she’s drawn further into his universe, unable to resist his gravitational pull. When she learns Hudson has a dark history of his own, she realizes too late that she’s fallen for the worst man she could possibly get involved with. Or maybe their less than ideal pasts give them an opportunity to heal each other and finally find the love their lives have been missing.



Fixed on You is the first book in a trilogy about a recent MBA graduate/bartender who is struggling with an addiction. Only this addiction is a little different. Her fixation is men. In fact, she gets fixated on them, and stalks them. I have to say, this is a new spin on the usual romance novel, and I LOVED IT! I could NOT put this book down. Alayna is kind of a naughty girl, but she is trying to be good. Well, until she meets Hudson Pierce. He kind of knocks the breath, and the desire to be good, right out of her.

Hudson has his own addictions, and secrets to battle. I can’t give them away without spoiling the book. I really like Hudson, but the entire book, told in the first person POV by Alayna, leaves you wondering about him, and his motives.

Hudson, surprise, is a billionaire playboy, and he has just bought the nightclub that Alayna works at. But he wants a little more from her. He wants to hire her to help him fool his mother into believing she is his girlfriend, in order to prove he can fall in love. This will keep him from being pushed into a relationship with their long time family friend Celia. Maybe not the best job for a girl that gets overly attached to guys!

"It felt good to have someone rooting for our fake relationship. It validated my growing belief in the possibility of more."

It has been a LONG time since I have read a book that I wanted to read so badly, but I kept putting it down, so it would last longer!

I mentioned this was part of a trilogy, but the ending is not a cliffhanger. I feel comfortable saying you can leave off here if you want. BUT book two Found In You is already out, and I already have my grubby little paws on it, happily reading it. Stay tuned for my review of it. But in the meantime, buy Fixed on You, because I rate it a solid four stars.
