Fix You Review

Fix You
Author: Beck Anderson
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Adult 
Publication Date: September 17th, 2013
Publisher: Omnific Publishing

When Kelly Reynolds’s husband died, he left her—the awkward, cautious one—to raise their two young boys. She’s pieced herself back together, barely. Now she takes refuge in her routine: running her kids around and running the trails near her Idaho home. 

Two years after her husband’s death, a chance encounter on a run brings Andrew into her life. But Andrew is Andy Pettigrew, the Andy Pettigrew, famous actor. Kelly hates risk, and a love affair with Andrew is certainly tempting fate. She doesn’t fit into his Hollywood world. She doesn’t own a pair of Louboutins, and she couldn’t walk five paces in them if she did. Andrew oozes cool. She reeks of dork.

But despite this, they click. It may be inexplicable, but it works. However, it’s also becoming clear that Andrew struggles with the pressures of his fame. Kelly’s hold on a so-called normal life is already tenuous, and as much as she might want to indulge the fantasy, she doesn’t know how either of them is supposed to cope with stalkerazzi and tweet-happy fans with camera phones. She and Andrew both have secrets that seem impossible to keep. 

Beck Anderson’s witty, engaging writing yields an emotional tale of love, loss, and all the little things that make up a life. In the end, what is it that really holds us together? Kelly must decide if love can fix two people who might be broken beyond repair.
 I rated Fix You FOUR leaves!! Fabulous debut by Beck Anderson!!  Fix You is a very sweet, romantic story. It’s a fresh and original story which makes it even better!! This story follows the growing relationship between Kelly, a widower with two boys, and major A-list celebrity Andrew. Their story is told from Kelly's point of view. Kelly and Andrew meet out of the blue as she was doing her daily run.  I thought Kelly's character was great, she is a strong independent woman.  She really could care less that Andrew is a famous movie star. To her he is just a person. Andrew is a very sweet and down-to-earth guy, who is struggling with a past that he doesn't know how to let go.  Kelly and Andrew both have a past they are trying to heal from. They are both perfect together because they know how to heal each other in their own ways. The story shows that celebrities are just normal people and they have consequences that come with being a celebrity. Throughout this book, I was on an emotional high ride and I was wondering how it was all going to work out for both Kelly and Andrew. Lovely book, you need to read it as soon as possible!! 

Beck Anderson believes in the power of perfectly imperfect women and in the healing power of love. Her new novel, Fix You, grew out of those beliefs and the time to write afforded by the worst Thanksgiving blizzard she’s ever witnessed in West Yellowstone.

For Beck, the path to published novelist has taken lots of twists and turns, including a degree in anthropology, a stint as a ticket seller at a ski resort, a much-loved career as a high school English teacher, and a long tenure as a member of the best writing group ever, hands down.
Beck balances (clumsily at best) writing novels and screenplays, working full-time as an educator, mothering two pre-teen males, loving one post-40 husband, and making time to walk the foothills of Boise, Idaho, with Stefano DiMera Delfino Anderson, the suavest Chihuahua north of the border.
