"Richard, we had a baby."

31st December 1999. Seventeen-year-old Brit, Hanna Vincent, meets New Yorker, Richard Larsen; a Columbia student and step-son of scion Leon Maxwell. Divided by wealth, distance and a common language, an unconventional friendship grows between the two.

From London to New York, from 1999 to 2012, Fix You follows the story of quirky, music-loving Hanna and handsome, driven Richard as they fall in love and are torn apart. Their tempestuous relationship leads to an explosive revelation that threatens to destroy them both.

Emotional and touching, this is a story of second chances. Is their love shattered beyond repair?

Maya's Review
Sometime when you pick up a book, you don't really know what to expect especially if the author is new to you. You read the blurb and think, I might like this. So you pick up a copy.

I'm glad I did. The story is long lost lovers meeting up again, in this case after 12 years, is nothing new. However I enjoyed the way this author told the story of Hanna and Richard. They are both easily likeable and relatable. I'm not quite sure I totally agree with wome of their choices. Then again, when you're 17 you don't always make the right ones. The story moves along at a reasonable pace and certainly tugs at the heart strings in places. I love that the story deal with real life issues as well.

If you're looking for contemporary romance with a difference, then this is for you.
