Jeremy King, Hollywood ├╝ber-agent to the stars, knows that sharks gotta swim. HeÔÇÖs one of them, after all. HeÔÇÖs never met a deal he couldnÔÇÖt strike or an argument he couldnÔÇÖt win. LA is his kind of townÔÇöthey both never stop moving.
So when his friend and client, movie star Andrew Pettigrew, invites him on a ÔÇ£man-cationÔÇØ to the wilds of Idaho for a little fly-fishing, JeremyÔÇÖs not so sure. He might not have cell service. ThereÔÇÖs no way thereÔÇÖll be any supermodels to woo. And his idea of the great outdoors is a drive down the Pacific Coast Highway in his Tesla Model SÔÇömoose definitely do not factor into the picture.
Fitting then that because of a moose, he meets Macy Shea Summerlin, the best fly-fishing guide on the South Fork. JeremyÔÇÖs surprised and tantalized, but Macy isnÔÇÖt having any of his alpha male posturing. She gives as good as she gets, and she knows how to throw a mean right hook.
As the two of them get tangled up in each otherÔÇÖs lives, both Jeremy and Macy must come to terms with winning and losing and letting love in. And Jeremy has to find the answer to his own question: Is he simply ÔÇ£usingÔÇØ Macy or could he really ÔÇ£useÔÇØ someone like her? Find out in Use Somebody, book 3 of the Fix You series.
The third in Beck AndersonsÔÇÖs Fix You series, Use Somebody taps into the life of agent extraordinaire Jeremy King. The story opens with Jeremy and Andrew a with HIs client Andrew and family friends at a mens fishing retreat. Jeremy is, rightly so, a confident man and by nate of his profession, a fixer. From the moment he checks into the lodge, heÔÇÖs besieged with the image of fishing guide Macy. HeÔÇÖs found a challenge in Macy and seems utterly perplexed as to why.
AndersonsÔÇÖ storytelling is incredibly descriptive and it made me yearn for a week at a lodge in Idaho. It took me a bit to get behind Jeremy though. His confidence is expected, but he really is absorbed in all things Jeremy. He really does have a great heart, itÔÇÖs just slow to show. Initially, the story is delivered with Jeremy addressing the reader, a clever set-up by the author because it really does drive the sense that we know Jeremy, we are in his head after all. ItÔÇÖs Macy who is a mystery.
Macy is adorably goofy as she tries her hardest not to swear, and I loved her command of the river, of fishing, such a male dominated activity. She has secrets that Anderson slowly exposes, drawing us into the drama. MacyÔÇÖs upbringing, her unique issue thatÔÇÖs probably more common than we know, and her life in Idaho really does make her a perplexing character. It’s easy to feel empathy for her as he leads a rather lonely life, but she seems content. Even if she is coasting through and not experiencing much joy outside of her job.
JeremyÔÇÖs life is devoid of family, aside from AndyÔÇÖs, which makes it easier to empathize for him in his quest to both help and win Macy. He really seeÔÇÖs himself as a hero, he can fix the situation Macy is in and he goes all out to help her, making him a good guy in the end. The drama is not too over the top, the story is well paced, and their connection forms despite MacyÔÇÖs reluctance. It seems Jeremy doesnÔÇÖt take no for an answer all that well. Use Somebody is a a solid 4 star read and a great addition to the series.
