Overview

"Katerina-I need some help. Be a good girl and come over here and I'll make it worth your while."

It's an offer NYC college student Katerina Mills should refuse. But how can she?

A desperate situation....

After ditching her cheating lover (and boss), she's stuck in dead end temp jobs. Her dad just ditched her mom and his promise to pay Kat's college tuition bill.

She has two weeks to come up with $14,000 or she's out of her apartment, out of school, and out of luck.

A dangerous world....

Katerina falls into a job as a "fixer" for New York City's wealthy and privileged men. They have problems they need "fixed," quick and on the QT, and they're willing to pay.

The rules are simple: collect the money, use your contacts, fix the problem.

Kat's first job is easy: tail a shopaholic socialite wife. But who's tailing Kat?

Kat's second job is not so easy: steal a VHS tape hidden in an antique chest. She can't do it alone. To be a thief, she needs a thief: handsome, reclusive Alexander Winter to be exact.

Kat soon learns the real rules for a fixer: there are no rules, there are no refunds. Get in. Get results. Get gone.

As every step brings her closer to her goal and closer to danger, there's one rule left for Katerina Mills to learn: once you're in, there's no getting out.

See publisher's blurb for plot clues. Well crafted suspense told by Katerina herself. Altogether too believable tale of desperation and working to overcome many things at once. Looking forward to next in series!

The Fixer is the first novella in a series following Katerina. She is struggling to pay her bills and tuition for law school, so she finds herself working in a private concierge position that makes her tons of money, fast. But the catch is that she has to do services that no one else wants or is able to do. I really loved this book! It was a great speed and had enough description and action to keep me engaged the whole time. I was actually planning on giving this book five stars, but I really hate books that force you to read the next book by leaving huge cliffhangers. My opinion is that books in a series should leave one loose end to be tied up in the next book to keep readers wanting more. But this just felt like I only read the first half of one book. There were no resolutions or answers. By the time the next book comes out, I will forget all about this book and I will never really know what happens. This is especially annoying for a mystery book. That genre relies on the ending to tie everything together and to give the reader an “ah-ha” moment. Plus this book was only 122 pages. I felt like another 50 pages could have sufficiently ended the book, but still persuade the reader to go on to the next book in the series. It just really felt unfinished and frustrated me.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. The Fixer: The Naked Man is the first in a new suspense series by Jill Amy Rosenblatt. Katerina is up a creek. Her dad bails on the family and his commitment to send Katerina to college. Her tuition is due, and not being one to cower and give up, Katerina jumps on an opportunity to become a "fixer". For a price, she makes problems go away. Katerina is a spunky characters. She has her moments of doubts and tears, but she does not go down for the count. When an opportunity to become a fixer is presented, she takes it. It pays well, and given her last boss, she is not short on experience with shady characters. While not many characters are thoroughly developed in this story, their mystery adds greatly to the suspense and intrigue. The secondary characters who became Katerina's key contacts to get problems fixed were a hoot. I loved the neurotic burglar, Alexander Winter! Katerina juxtapose to her do-good friends (nurses and cops) and her flaky parents is fun. She is so different from everyone in her immediate circle. I loved the quandary posed by her ethics and how nicely Ms. Rosenblatt tied that into Katerina's work dilemma. "Ethics is whatever you want it to be, as long as you can explain it so that you can sleep nights." The Fixer is fast paced and pure fun. A quick, enjoyable read with a tantalizing segue-ending. I cannot wait to read the next installment in the series. ***Review has been done in conjunction with Nerd Girl Official.
