What's love got to do with it? Patrick Harrington is handsome, wealthy and successful. He is also a high-functioning addict that craves his next fix. His vices of choice are money and women: taking risks at work and pursuing multiple sexual conquests. Determined to get what he wants, as he always does, Harrington fixates on Alexandra Fisher - the latest pretty young thing in his office.
Relationships are not a test so why cheat? Alexandra Fisher is in love with a man at work. And love makes you do crazy things. Fisher is marked with a flashing neon sign of vulnerability, a result of both the tragic loss of her father and her limited romantic history. Patrick Harrington, the eternal bachelor and playboy Investment Banker, is happy to exploit her susceptibility and his pursuit of her is relentless.
An intense liaison develops. Harrington pushes Fisher deep out of her comfort zone, submerging her into his world of deception, depravity and excess. Yet, Harrington finds himself similarly off-kilter, as Fisher teaches him that love doesn't have to fit the fairytale mould that other women have tried to force upon him. At the risk of their careers, the torrid romance begins to take on a life of its own.
Fix is the ultimate high-fliers diary based on a true story, set in London against a backdrop of banking and greed. A boy meets girl story where rules are learnt to be broken, money is no object and love gives way to ambition.

The title appealed to me more than anything when I was offered this book. I’m not adverse to a touch of erotica so figured it could be a pleasant read. What’s not to like … a powerful (or could be said controlling) man and the attractive girl in the office, this will provide a bit of tension/passion surely? Patrick has a history of getting exactly what he wants via the women available, failing that he will flash the cash. Set in the high flying banking world, this is told from Patrick and Alexandra’s view. She is infatuated, will he treat her as he usually treats his conquests or could she be slightly different all be it slightly naive, will she possess a certain charm strong enough to alter him .. set up classic romance. Yes, it is easy to read, has a certain degree of excitement and maybe an edginess because it is supposedly based on true facts but ultimately it could easily fall in to the ’50 Shades’ category. I didn’t feel as though I was reading anything particularly new. I like to read a book which will give me the ‘wow’ factor, regardless of genre and this one was a little luke warm in that respect. I believe there are more books in the pipeline so it will be interesting to see if they are any different. This one would be good to read by the pool. Thanks to the author and Clink Street Publishers for the ARC.
