SECOND SUNDAY SERIES – JULY

For July – I’m featuring a series that I’ve already mentioned before but it bears showing up on the blog again – The Fixed Series by Laurelin Paige.  I reviewed Chandler back when it was released in September but I just love this whole series.  The relationship between Alayna and Hudson is one of my favorites of all time.  They start out as a fake relationship in order to fool Hudson’s parents and very quickly Alayna realizes she cares more about him than she should.  The way Laurelin Paige progresses them from a ‘business arrangement’ to something more just grabs the reader and holds their attention throughout the entire series.  We get to hear about Norma & Boyd in Falling Under You and Chandler & Genevive in Chandler.  I added in Falling Under You and Chandler because even though one is a novella and one is a standalone, both of them tie into the series.

One of the great things about this series is that it is complete, so you don’t have to wait for the next book to come out.  None of the books leave at a big cliffhanger, but it helps having the next one already published.  If you haven’t read anything by this author, I highly suggest you start with this series.  You can also check out the Found Duet, which is kind of a spin off from the Fixed Series.  Below are the 6 books (technically 5 books & 1 novella) of the series, as well as their release date, length, my personal rating for them & a brief synopsis.  I hope you enjoy this series as much as I did.

 

FIXED ON YOU 
RELEASE DATE: JUN 22, 2013
LENGTH: 231 PAGES
MY RATING: 5 STARS

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.

FOUND IN YOU
RELEASE DATE: SEP 30, 2013
LENGTH: 232 PAGES
MY RATING: 5 STARS

Alayna Withers has only had one kind of relationship: the kind that makes her obsessive and stalker-crazy. Now that Hudson Pierce has let her into his heart, she’s determined to break down the remaining walls between them so they can build a foundation that’s based on more than just amazing sex. Except Hudson’s not the only one with secrets.

With their pasts pulling them into a web of unfounded mistrust, Alayna turns to the one person who knows Hudson the best—Celia, the woman he almost married. Hoping for insight from someone who understands all sides of the story, Alayna forms a bond with Celia that goes too far—revealing things about Hudson that could end their love for good.

This is the first relationship where Alayna hasn’t spiraled out of control. And she might lose Hudson anyway…

FOREVER WITH YOU 
RELEASE DATE: JAN 13, 2014
LENGTH: 387 PAGES
MY RATING: 4.5 STARS

Alayna Withers relationship with Hudson Pierce has tested both her and his ability to trust. They decide that the only way they can move forward together is with open doors and transparency. It won’t be easy for the scarred lovers, but they’re committed to each other more now than ever. Alayna, in particular, has grown through their trials, and has emerged more confident and faithful to the man she loves.

But while the pair is focused on the future, their past shows up again to threaten their fragile bond. Promises that were made are broken, and Alayna learns that Hudson still has very potent secrets—secrets that will tear them both apart. As much as she feels for him, her ability to forgive and forget is tested beyond her limits.

Even though she found the only man who could fix her, a forever with Hudson seems more and more out of reach.
