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.
A hint of danger, a dash of suspense, and uninhibited sex make this a winning introduction to the Games People Play contemporary romantic thriller series. Levi "Wren" Upton eliminates problems for the rich, powerful, and politically incorrect. When he learns that D.C. native Emery Finn has been relentless in uncovering Wren's identity (the truth of which is known by only a handful of people), he poses as his own assistant to personally warn her to back off for her own safety. She divulges that she holds Wren responsible for her cousin's disappearance 13 years prior; he reveals himself to her in an effort to clear his name, which she has the power to ruin thanks to her high-profile family and her job as a locator of missing persons. Their investigation of the cold case puts Emery in danger, and Wren sees it as his responsibility to protect her, which brings back memories of his painful past. Dimon (Bad Boys Undercover) excels at creating memorable, complex characters, and Wren's slightly awkward behavior and Emery's spunky personality form an unlikely, entertaining union.

This is my first book by this author and I loved it! It had everything- mystery, romance, suspense and an exceptional ending! Looking forward to reading the coming books in this series and going to purchase some of her older books!
Powerful. Intense. Passionate.
Mysterious. Sexy. Powerful. Emotional. So many words describe The Fixer by HelenKay Dimon. This contemporary romance with suspense elements focuses mainly on the characters with little procedural details of the cold case investigation. The book has a more serious tone to it with intense plot lines. Get ready for your heart to be tied up in knots but also filled with hope at the end.
The first meeting between the mysterious Wren and persistent Emery was a treat. Not one that I thought would turn out well, but one that captures our attention. Dimon does an outstanding job writing these characters that are so complicated. As the story moves along, more layers of both Wren and Emery are exposed and keeps the reader turning pages. The dialogue between Wren and Emery is absolutely fantastic. Wren is a man of few words expecting others to take what he says without challenge, whereas Emery challenges him every step of the way. She is able to break down those walls to his heart and make him a bit more human.
Supporting characters area always great in books and I think Garrett (Wren's second in command) stole the scenes he was in. He handles Wren so well and his sarcastic humor lightens the mood and balances Wren out. I would have loved to see more of him. The Fixer is a book that will cause your heart to ache for Wren and Emery when you learn their stories, but will also have your heart racing with excitement when they get to know each other passionately. This book has it all. If you are looking for a contemporary romance with suspense and mystery elements, give The Fixer a read. It is one that will stay with you long after you finish it.
