My life is a friggin’ fairytale—just not the kind any single girl would ever want to star in.
Like any good heroine, I’ve got a few challenges to face. Getting my son to wear pants is one; dealing with my snoozefest of a job is another. Then there’s the Beast, my freeloading brother who’s worn a permanent dent in the couch at my new place. And no fairytale would be complete without a smoking hot prince, of course. Too bad he’s a complete ass.
Everything in me screams to steer clear of Nate Murphy. Because, if life has taught me anything, there is no such thing as happily ever after.
I may not be a superhero, but I do my best to come to the rescue when I’m needed. And, hey, I just moved halfway across the country after a single phone call from my mom. But being back home and taking on the responsibilities involved makes me a bit cranky at times. Unfortunately, the one time I completely lose my cool is in front of the hottest girl I’ve ever met. I’ve got my work cut out for me if I’m going to fix this. But I will fix this.
I’ll be anything Laney Monroe needs me to be … a superhero, a prince, or just a guy she might take a chance on.
The Fix is the first book in the Carolina Connections series; each book in the series can be enjoyed as a standalone novel.
About the Author
Sylvie began publishing when her kids started elementary school, and she loves sharing her stories with readers and hopefully making them laugh and swoon a bit along the way.

Or she's been kidnapped-so what are you doing just sitting there?!!

While the story was fun there was a lot of profanity, mostly f*ck, which didn't enhance the story. Every adult but one had this as their every day language. Certain characters might speak this way due to life circumstances, but for the women it seemed wrong. Laney is mom to young Rocco who thinks "pants optional" is a rule to follow. She meets Nate when she and another neighbor confront him concerning the construction his company is building close to their homes. Nate has had the worst start to the day possible. No run, no coffee and no breakfast have made him extremely irritable. So when the Mom Squad invades his space wanting answers he's rude and sends them on their way, but not before he's attracted to Laney. To get to know her he decides to apologize the next day. Three stars for language.
Really enjoyed this book!
