Product Description

One night is all it takes...

Holly Jacobs loses her heart a little too easily. Never again. But when she meets the sexy soldier on the beach, Holly knows she's in big trouble. Zack Winter is gorgeous and in pain, and when he kisses Holly, all of her resolve melts away...

Zack is on short-term leave to attend a funeral, and he's walking a fine line. The loss is unbearable...and he'll do whatever it takes to distract himself from it. Especially if it means a night of searingly-hot sex with Holly Jacobs. Only his brilliant idea isn't exactly going according to plan.

One night isn't nearly enough. But if it goes much longer it might end in broken hearts…

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy-hot and angsty 26 October 2015
By Lori Hall - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've been a fan of Sofia Grey's writing for years, and read all her books. This one didn't disappoint. The relationship between Zack and Holly is scorching, and both characters are complex and real. They've got their own flaws and insecurities and strengths. They push each other to be better. And the side-plot with Zack's sister was intense. It had me on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. How would it all end?

On top of that, the sex is super hot. Top stars for this brilliant book by Ms. Grey.
4.0 out of 5 stars Your New Fix! 2 November 2015
By My Slanted Bookish Ramblings - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Zack Winters is an officer of the military, who has come home to bury his dead sister. He tries to lose himself in memories and self-reflection instead of dealing with the pain of losing his sibling. Nothing seems to work until he meets a beautiful stranger walking two dogs on the beach. He hopes that a hot night with her could get rid of the pain inside him. After the first kiss, he doesn't know if he will ever get enough.

Holly Jacobs wasn't looking for a fling with a soldier when she came home to look after her brother. She soon realizes that a night of passion might be exactly what she needs. The only problem, one night might not be enough to quench her need.

Even though this is a short novella read, I felt very connected to the characters as well as their storyline and emotions. I felt such pain and sorrow for Zack having to deal with what he does. I was so happy that Holly was able to distract him, even if it was only for a short while during the nights.

This was my first read from Sofia Grey and after reading His Temporary Fix, it definitely won't be the last book I read from this author. This story stole my heart and left me wanting even more. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I highly recommend it.
4.5 Stars!!

3.0 out of 5 stars 2.5 - "Time is precious." Stars. 26 October 2015
By Miss Claire L. Robinson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
2.5 - "Time is precious." Stars.

The synopsis of His Temporary Fix, promises one thing and then approximately half-way through then diverts off in a completely different direction.

I was expecting a sizzle-fest at the beach where our Hero and Heroine end up with more than One-and-Done feelings for each other, and then all of a sudden Holly and Zack are turned into New Zealand's answer to Sherlock & Watson. This story is novella length and to be honest the amount of plot points the author tried to cram into it left it all a bit up in the air.

Holly is back in New Zealand to care for her brother, she meets Zack on the beach, they have sex, a relationship develops. That was enough for me, I didn't need the frosty mother, the intimated other woman, the witch-hunt for Zacks' deceased sisters lover, etc...

It almost felt like I got half of one book and then half of another. It was well written, I would certainly think about reading more from the author in the future, I just didn't need so much crammed into a novella, a lot of which didn't really add anything to it.

"you make me want more... You make me want everything."

2.0 out of 5 stars I lot went wrong that could have easily been done better 28 October 2015
By Lightning City Book Reviews - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I've really struggled with this review. There are so many chords that strike me in the right places but then there are more chords that just don't sound right. Here are some of the things that are "right" .... 1.) It is sexy and thrilling. 2.) It is an "attraction to love" romance that does hit you at first with it's sensitivity and next with it's intense sense of want and sexual chemistry. 3.) Ms. Grey adds to this mix an intriguing mystery to be solved before the soldier has to return to duty. 4.) "His Temporary Fix" has two main characters that mesmerize you and assist the story to pull you in and wrap itself around you. 5.) Ms Grey presents a tender yet racy Romance which the story has a ticking clock that the couple needs to race in order that they can make each moment count. What goes wrong, or the discordant notes ... 1.) Ms. Grey allows herself to fall into the cliche of the Hero's penis is so large it's going to rip the woman in two or do damage to internal organs. 2.) The Heroine after knowing the Hero for little more than 24 hours takes it upon herself to "crash" a very sensitive family ceremony. 3.) The Hero, in order to replace the horrific memories the Heroine has of the place where her parents died a tragic death when she was very young, thinks going down on her while she stands outside of the car in an open area where anyone could drive up is the best way to deal with her grief. SPOILER ALERT!!!!! 4.) The Hero ships off to Afghanistan ... THE END. There is more to the ending but ultimately that's how it ends ... to me that's not a Happily Ever After - which is what I want out of my Romance novels. The characters where wonderful, the premise was great, the setting was fabulous, and the Mystery was thrilling ... but if the sexual cliche pit falls had been avoided, the Heroine been less "needy/eager", and there had been more time to build Romantic memories that helped to heal rather than Sexual memories that were merely band-aids then "His Temporary Fix" could have had more staying power.
This novel could have been really good unfortunately penis clichés, too short a time frame, and a Heroine that came across as almost as needy as she was strong doomed it. I had a thought there was more to mysterious death and I was afraid that there might have been a connection with Holly - thank goodness things worked out in a completely different way than I was worried the author would go. But the Mystery aspect leant a sense of "edge of your seat" reading. However, the ending really left me wanting for something more. Perhaps a more satisfying Epilogue?

4.0 out of 5 stars great Lunch read 6 November 2015
By Tobi H - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Format: Galley Copy
Holly has a soft heart she loves easy and gets hurt just as easy. When she sees Zack on the beach she knows she should walk away. Something in her just can't. Zack is in town for his sister's funeral on leave from his deployment to Afghanistan. Holly knows it's dangerous to her heart to spend time with him yet she finds herself helping him through his hard time and giving him company during his short leave. His Temporary fix is a super spicy, almost insta-love story with a touch of suspense that left me wanting more.
