Miranda Elaine’s debut book – Fixing Her – is available now!
Read it and Fixing Him before Fixing Us comes out!
When we were younger, Temperance Price was the quiet girl with dreamy eyes who hung on my every word. She was always beautiful, but I had plans to get out of Red Oak and make a life of my own.
Ten years later, a crushing tragedy has brought me home again – right back to her.
The innocent girl I left is gone, and in her place is a sassy single mom I can’t get out of my head. She’s hired me to fix her house, but I have other things in mind.
She thinks I’m just a handyman.
She thinks we’re only friends.
She thinks I’ve never noticed her.
I think what really needs to be fixed is her whole perspective.

I’m nervous but excited. My gut says to run away, but the glass of wine I just finished off is telling me this is an excellent idea. Feeling brave, I hold the phone out at arm’s reach and take a selfie of me sitting on top of my unmade bed.
Times like these make me glad I’m not great about washing the small amount of makeup I wear off before bed. Typically, I just use a baby wipe right before I fall asleep to wipe off whatever bit of mascara survived the day.
Today’s makeup, though light, is still present. I’m spread across the bed in my tiny black shorts and my favorite red tank top with a shelf bra built in. Before logic can make its way into my brain I hit send.
I review the picture and instantly regret fills my stomach. I felt so brave thirty seconds ago. But staring at it now, I see the small rolls of my stomach, and my chest needs more support than the tank itself can provide. Those are not perky twenty-year-old breasts. Those are the breasts of a woman who’s edging toward thirty and has had a baby. I’m ashamed of the dark circles under my eyes.
Why did I send that pic?
My heart sinks. He probably sees all my flaws, too. In a dimly lit house, they might not have been noticeable in passing. But on a phone screen, where you can zoom in they’re just there for the seeing.
Asher: Wow. That’s an incredible sight.
I’m unable to conjure a complete thought, nothing sexy, witty, or interesting. I’m frozen, knowing he’s staring at a photo of me, in awe.
Asher: Ok, my turn.
I’m not in any way prepared for what he sends. I’ve seen him shirtless. Hell, I can’t believe I’ve seen him nearly naked in person, felt him in the palm of my hand. And still, I’m in shock at the sight of him stretched out on his bed in just a pair of thin gray sweats, his hand on top wrapped around the outline of his long, thick cock.
I stare for too long at that hand-holding that cock firmly. I almost don’t even notice the smirk on his face. He knows how attracted I am to him. Just being around him makes me weak, and by the look on his face, I’m guessing he knows how turned on this sight is making me.
My resolve weakens. It’s not even just his hard body or amazing face. It’s the patience he’s shown my daughter. It’s his willingness to spend his time and skills to help me. It’s how he came home to relieve his parents of the stress and pressure of losing a son and attempting to run a business. It’s everything I don’t deserve to hold so close to my heart.
He’s a remarkable man. A man that in a different life, at a different time, I would fight tooth and nail to make mine.
Asher: You still there? You’re starting to hurt my ego.
Me: Yeah. 🙂 Just setting your profile pic on my phone.
Asher: Better make sure it stays locked then.
Me: No worries. I cropped it a tad.
Asher: Just a tad?
I giggle. There ain’t nothing tad-like about that cock.
Me: Well…maybe more than a tad. 😉
BlueSeal’s review of Fixing Her by Miranda Elaine
Fixing Her is the first book in the Fixing Series by Miranda Elaine. Fixing Her released in June of 2018 with Fixing Him in December of 2018 and the final book Fixing Us comes out in the Spring of 2019. WAIT….stop by the press or stop scrolling whatever is appropriate now-a-days. Today is March 1st and that means that spring officially begins on March 20th so it is coming very soon! I’ve even seen teasers on her website. Can you tell that I am a little excited? Well, you know that I LOVED Fixing Him so let me tell you about Fixing her.
I would like to tell you that this book is about Temperance and Asher but I would be lying to you. This book is about a precocious toddler named Eleanor Grace “Ellie” Price. Her mother, Temperance, describes her 3 year-old daughter as the following: menacing, angelic, mischievous, beautiful, special, an asshole, and entertaining. So you see, Ellie has stolen the book! It is all about her. Just wait and see. Ellie’s surprise appearance 3 years ago to single 22 year-old, who didn’t even have a boyfriend, had the entire town of Red Oak talking. (Pause the review for an aside comment. I’m looking through the book for a specific quote about Ellie and find myself once again absorbed in reading. I’m good now.) Temperance’s mom passed away leaving her in bad place, making poor decisions like a one-night-stand which left Temperance pregnant but it was having Ellie that finally brought Temperance out of her depression. It’s just been Ellie and Temperance, the dynamic due for the past 3 years.
Then one day, Asher Kade moves back to Red Oak to run the family construction business after the death of his big brother and the retirement of his father. Asher was the IT guy in high school and one high school boy who had Temperance’s full attention. Little did Temperance know but she also had Asher’s attention. But none of that matter’s because he is about to become wrapped about Ellie’s tiny, little finger. He connected with Ellie’s spunk immediately and enjoys texting with her on Temperance’s phone especially when Ellie sends him pictures of Temperance in nothing but a towel. Ellie and Asher’s relationship quickly grows to the nickname phase. Ellie is “Peanut” because she is so tiny and Asher is “Muffin” because Temperance calls him Stud Muffin. Ellie feels familiar to Asher and he finds her incredibly entertaining. And Ellie, well Ellie wants to keep Asher around for Lego emergencies.
You might want to know that Ellie’s mom and Muffin have some really great chemistry and some hot sexy time. But keep in mind, this book is about Ellie. Temperance and Asher are secondary characters – important characters – yet secondary. I stayed up entirely too late reading then woke up the next morning and read in bed until I finished this book. BTW… you will need to keep a box of tissues fairly close. I was obsessed and, as you can tell from the aside in paragraph two,I still am. Miranda Elaine hit it out of the park with her debut book! I can’t wait to watch her career develop because I have a feeling that it is going to be a long one! Miranda Elaine’s Fixing Her (AKA Ellie’s story) gets 5 out of 5 propellers!!!
