He’s my best friends brother.
She’s not over her ex.
I should have seen it coming, my world being shattered by
the man that was supposed to love me. But I didn’t and now I’m trying to find
the pieces of me he left behind.
I can’t fix her, not when I’m just as broken as she is. I
should leave her alone, she’s too good for me. But, fighting the attraction
that pulls us together is getting harder every day. It doesn’t take long until
we’re a tangle of limbs and pleasures. No promises are made, no guarantees.
Just a vow to keep our hearts out of the bedroom. Simple, right? Except, now we
both have to try and avoid getting cut on each other’s broken parts.

By the time the wine bottle is empty, my fingers are like
prunes. Lifting my drunk self out of the tub is a precarious exercise, but one
I’ve perfected quite well. Turning the radio off, I move to the linen cupboard.
Sober me forgot to leave a towel out. Drunk me is amused to find that sober me
also forgot to bring the clean towels up from the laundry room downstairs.
Oh man, I really am drunk.
“fuck it” I think out loud before I make my way to my
room. This is the only perk of being alone here for a few days. There’s no one
to judge me if I decide to stay in pyjamas eating takeaway and drinking wine
all weekend. There’s also no one to judge me or my not so youthful anymore body
if I decide to stroll down stairs butt naked at three pm. It’s actually quite
freeing. Since the girls, I’ve struggled with how I see myself, my body.
Carrying two good sized babies to almost full term does terrible things to a
women’s body. No amount of gym and Pilates is ever going to fix the mess that
is my stomach and thighs, much to my chagrin. And even more to Petes,
“I bet Amber’s thighs don’t jiggle” I mutter to myself as I
pad down the stairs. In fact, I know they don’t. I saw enough of them in Pete’s
office to know that she’s toned in the places that mattered to my husband.
What the fuck ever.
Deciding that my wayward thoughts need to shut the fuck up,
I detour to the fridge for more wine, completely forgetting that I still
haven’t grabbed a robe or a towel to cover my ass up. Yanking the door open,
the frigid air biting at my skin causes me to let out a startled yelp.
“holy shit, that’s cold” I mutter as I leaned in to get the
wine that I’d stored right at the back away from the girls.
“I think that’s the point of a refrigerator, Sweetheart”
The deep gravelly voice sounding from the direction of the
front door makes me jump out of my own skin, causing me to whack my head on the
internal shelf. The clang of my teeth crashing together causing me to drop the
wine from my hand and let go of the door that had until that moment, been
hiding my naked body.
Not even the shatter of glass on the floor is loud enough to
distract me from the complete and utter mortification I feel at being caught in
all my drunk, naked glory by the most beautiful man I’ve ever seen.
Duke Nash.

I am quickly becoming a huge Emma Louise fan! Fixed is the second book I have read of hers and features characters we first met in Score but can be read as a standalone. Though Score is an amazing read as well and one I highly recommend. Elliot is Poppy’s best friend (from Score) and Duke is Poppy’s older and protective brother.

Elliott is devastated, but not surprised when the man who was supposed to stand by her side always walks away. Trying to be strong for her children, she is barely able to function some days. Even though she did not always feel like it, I felt she was so strong and determined. It just took her some time to see it as well.

I loved Duke so much. He always took care of Poppy when they were younger. He was protective, caring and full of determination. But he did not see himself as truly deserving of someone like Elliott. He was the bad boy to have fun with. But he was so much more.

Elliott and Duke decide on a no-strings relationship, but with a chemistry and connection like theirs, there is no denying what the heart wants. Can they truly keep their hearts out of it? I loved reading their journey and watching them fall, even when it was the last thing they wanted. Another great read from Emma Louise!
