Book Review: Fix My Fall by Carey Heywood

Title: Fix My Fall
Series: The Fix #3
Author: Carey Heywood
Genre: Romantic Comedy
 Release Date: February 16, 2018


Abby Thompson’s love life is a disaster. Everyone around her is blissfully falling in love, while she’s busy binge watching anime. The last thing she needs is a walking temptation, in the form of ex-nerd turned dreamy astrophysics professor, Spencer Hill, aka her new client.

It’s her job to find Spencer his dream home, NOT fantasize about a ride on his space rocket. But the sparks between them are impossible to ignore, and soon, Abby is wondering if her losing streak in love could be turning around.

Can she get over her anxiety he’s got her out-brained, and can he let go of the past and the fear that the girl he crushed on in high school is still out of his league?

My Thoughts
Fix My Fall by Carey Heywood is a book that’s somewhat hard for me to categorise. I’ve settled on part sweet romance / part subdued romance.

Abby Thompson is a realtor; a homeless one thanks to a sinkhole in her backyard. She crosses paths with Spencer Hill when he hires her to find him a home upon his return to his hometown. Spencer has been crushing on Abby since high school but she was out of his league in many ways so nothing ever came of it.

Abby remembers Spencer, but high school Spencer is nothing like the attractive, built Spencer standing in front of her today. As time passes, Spencer and Abby get to know each other and become a couple. In a change from their high school days it’s Abby who is feeling unsure and somewhat unworthy of Spencer. To his credit he never makes Abby feel this way. In fact, Spencer could easily be the poster-boy for the perfect boyfriend; he’s attentive, he communicates well, he takes interest in Abby’s hobbies and he pleases her physically.

The book takes place over a year and plenty happens in this time but I felt the book lacked intensity at crucial parts. Most characters, including Spencer and Abby, were very composed. Any hiccups in life and love were handled with an equanimity that I found difficult to relate to. Some of my favourite characters were Nadine, Duncan and Spencer’s mum for the fact they brought some added colour to the story.

Fix My Fall is book 3 in The Fix series.
