I am a tad ashamed to admit that I was initially drawn to Helenkay Dimon’s new release The Fixer by its sexy, alluring cover.  Give me a smoking hot man in a tux any day of the week.  However, this is a classic case of the phrase “never judge a book by its cover.”  Quite frankly, this story was more than I bargained for, and I mean that in the most positive way imaginable. 😉

The Fixer is an adventurous, emotionally tortuous journey that will keep you gasping as you eagerly anticipate the next move in an exciting game of romance and suspense at the same time that you impatiently wait for the final pages of the novel to unfurl so that all of the mysteries, enigmas and surprises will finally be revealed.

Let the record show that I am a huge fan of Helenkay Dimon’s work because her romantic suspense is *killer*.  It will slay you, disable you and addict you.  The Fixer is no exception.

In her latest release the author introduces us to Emery Finn, a bold, courageous woman who is investigating the disappearance of her cousin Tiffany.  She seeks out Wren, a professional “fixer” who ferrets out the source of a problem and uses every resource in his arsenal to resolve it, regardless of the legal boundaries set by the law.

This is the story of two strangers who meet under tragic circumstances yet experience an undeniable draw to each other. They attempt to squash the connection that results from their magnetism as they come together to solve a mystery that ultimately unites them.

Call me a masochist, but I love a dark hero that comes off as emotionally detached and difficult because of latent, underlying circumstances that the author unveils in multiple layers as the novel progresses from start to finish. This is the essence of Wren’s character; Wren is described as “not human,” yet the events of The Fixer expose the fact that he is a fallible human man, not an unfeeling machine.

Wren seems cold and unwilling to make emotional connections, but that is only because he is particular about who he allows into his inner circle.   Certainly, due to his line of work he is justified in being cautious and reserved. On the other hand, as Wren’s layers are peeled back and exposed to the world his character becomes more and more appealing.

Wren is a hero through and through. He is logical, systematic and calculating.  This man is focused, intelligent and skilled in a way that rivals the highest levels of a military command. This makes him perfect for Emery, who is undeniably strong and determined with a confidence that borderlines arrogance.  I have a strong respect for her character because she never gave up on Wren; she was just as unwavering in her efforts to break down Wren’s walls as she was insistent about ferreting out the truth surrounding her cousin’s disappearance. She makes a *huge* mistake with Wren that made me love her in the end because it takes a special person to admit a mistake, own it and then take steps to make amends for it.

This is a spoiler free review so I feel that I have already said too much, but know that The Fixer is one of those books that will keep you thoroughly engrossed in the story.  Yes, it will also have you mesmerized by the surprising revelations that are revealed. I sat there looking at my kindle like “did that just happen?” 😱

At the same time, the events in The Fixer spawned an unquenchable thirst for more of Helenkay’s Dimon’s work, because I have a feeling that there will be additional books in this series.  I simply *cannot* wait.

If you love romance, riveting mystery, fabulous writing and well developed characters then The Fixer is right up your alley.

I hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.

Overall: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ + 1/2 ⭐️S

He’s known only as Wren. A wealthy, dangerously secretive man, he specializes in making problems disappear. A professional fixer, Wren hides a dark past, but his privacy is shattered when Emery Finn seeks him out—and what she wants from him is very personal.

Some people disappear against their will. Emery’s job is to find them and bring closure. Wren is the only person who can help solve Emery’s own personal mystery: the long-ago disappearance of her cousin. Just tracking down the sexy, brooding Wren is difficult enough. Resisting her body’s response to him will prove completely impossible.

Anonymity is essential to Wren’s success, yet drawn by Emery’s loyalty and sensuality, he’s pulled out of the shadows. But her digging is getting noticed by the wrong people. And as the clues start to point to someone terrifyingly close, Wren will have to put his haunted past aside to protect the woman he loves.
