GR's Summary:

Olivia Beckett’s once-charmed life is falling apart. Her family is about to lose everything, and she has almost no chance of continuing her college education. She can't even seek solace from her high school sweetheart. He's changed. She doesn't recognize the boy she used to know— his violent behavior is escalating and it scares the hell out of her. Her whole world is crumbling, and she has no one to turn to……

Sebastian “Bash” McDaniels is an up and comer in the boxing world working nights at the local college bar until he can land the fight of his dreams that will get him the hell out of Boston and away from his family's tragic past. He’s weeks from his goal when Olivia Beckett comes tumbling into his life in a flash of silky dark hair and haunted eyes. When he saves her from a potentially brutal beating, they begin to grow close, but Olivia's ex isn’t ready to let her go so easily. 

Bash can't bring himself to walk away, but fixing Olivia just might leave him broken.

My Thoughts:

Are you looking for a sexy, and addictive new read?  Well, look no further!  The McDaniels Brothers Serial Series promises to be that and more!!!  Come and meet the sexy, drop dead gorgeous, and "panty melting," Sebastian (Bash) McDaniels!  He lives with his two brothers Mattias (Matty) and Reid in a small apartment in Boston.  The brothers live life by their motto, "Keep your eye on the prize."  "The prize" being for all of them to make it out of Boston, and for Bash to become a professional boxer.  Coming from a broken home, and then the foster care system, these brothers are super tight, and the only family that they have is each other.

Olivia (Liv) come from vas wealth, and has never wanted for anything.  However, her world is crumbling apart when she learns that her family is losing everything.  She doesn't know how she's going to continue paying for college past the next semester.  Her boyfriend, Andy, has been acting strange lately, and he has gotten violent with her when he's become intoxicated.  One night, when Liv, and Andy go out, he gets jealous and starts being abusive.  He drags her to the women's restroom, and starts choking her.  Bash is working that night and lays Andy out with a single punch.  This is the second time during the night that Liv and Bash have interacted, and it's obvious that they shaw an attraction.  When Liv asks Bash to teach her self defense, things get heated in more way then one, and will never be the same for this two!

Fix You, Bash and Olivia Book One, flew by!  This story was sexy, addictive, and completely pulled me in.  It ended in a to be continued, and I am very exited because part two comes out April 30th!  The ending just about killed me!  I want to strangle, the pompous, self-entitled, narcissistic, and abusive Andy!  I need Bash and Liv to get their happily ever after.  This first part was like a great pilot to a new TV show that gets you hooked, and then you need to wait till the next episode to get some more answers!  One thing is for certain.  I will be waiting and counting down the days until I get to read part 2!  This serial is very promising, and I have a feeling that I will be devouring every single book in this series!  I give Fix You, Bash and Olivia, 4 All Consuming, Sex Personified, Bash Filled Stars!

  1. He goes by Bash? I totally LOVE that. Kinda cool that it's three brothers standing together. Looks awesome. Thanks for the review.

    1. I loved his nickname too :) I hope you read it!!! It's really good :)

  2. This is my first "serial" series and I loved Part 1! So looking forward to the rest of the story! :-)

    1. Oh yes! It was so good!!! I can't wait for part 2 also!!!

    2. oh man it is a serial? *deskface* I am only doing the serials that you pay one flat fee and get updates to your kindle every 2 weeks for 8-12 weeks. I am not paying for novellas that end up costing more then a hardcover book. Oh did I just rant? Sorry, pet peeve of mine but I am soooooooooo happy you are loving it and maybe when it is all one book or set I will get them

  3. I reviewed this today too! :) I read it last night and loved it. I can't wait to find out what happens next. And I hope Andy gets what he deserves! Ugh! LOL.

    1. Awesome! I hate Andy!!! He really needs to get put in his place!!!

  4. Oh lord Lindy I want had me at brothers...and your review made me squeal. I am adding to my list since I am on a book buying ban. *god help me*

  5. I want to read these, but I'm not a fan of the fact it's a serial. I'll wait until they are all out and then see. It sounds really good though.

    1. This was my first serial. I see the appeal of reading a story from cover to cover, but this one was really good!

  6. I love serials! This does look very good, and I know a lot of people love Bell's writing. Great review, Lindy!
