About the Author

I’m a registered dietitian/personal trainer who writes contemporary romance novels in my spare time. When weight lifting, rock climbing, white-water rafting, and jumping out of airplanes wasn’t enough, I decided to fulfill a dream I had as a child: to write a book. I’ve lived in New York my entire life and can’t imagine living anywhere else. I have the beaches, the bay and the city, all a half hour away. I’ve built memories here with my husband, two quirky daughters and a bunch of crazy friends, all whom I love very much.

This book is as amazing as the two before them and it captured me just as quick as the other two books this. The story is really well developed and felt really real and it was easy to follow. The mix between love, pain and being a strong women is just the perfect combination. The language drives the story forward and drags the reader in, with the story. Just as the two book before this one is funny and sad and strong and everything at once without being to little or to much. The balance is really good and you are on a emotional roller coaster during the read but I dont want it in any other way.

I am happy I found this series and this book is a little bit of my favorite in the series even if I love all 3 of them. The story is in many ways unique but also well known. The reader get to experience new things, feel and question its own believes just like I think all good books do. And just like after reading a really good book, I got the feeling of "what shall I do with my life now" when i had finished this series. I didnt know what to feel or think and I couldnt pick up another book becaues this books made me think and still makes me think. I go back and think about situations in the books and in this book and wonder if I have everything figured out in my life or if I can learn something from this books, and now we are talking fiction and not "help yourself books" even if I sort off feel that this book is good for you and for your soul.

So obviously I cant do anything other than give all three books top reviews and 5 starts but sometimes I wish I could give more because some other 5 star books feels weak compared to this series.

The Bridges Before Us is an endearing love story that Christine Ardigo wrote straight from the heart. I had the pleasure of reading an ARC and can say this has become my go-to read for its reality and heart. Her love story begins with Samantha struggling to love herself before she can love the right man and ends with the reader sighing in pleasure.

Samantha Hart has been an intriguing character in the Fix It or Get Out series, and this book explains everything. Her story jumps off the page as she gets help from (unknowingly) the wrong person to 'act' like who she wants to be, who she thinks is the person men want. This isn't a person we want her to be, a person we like so much, but think of this - at some point, we've made a wrong turn or found something about ourselves we didn't like - so forgiving Sam for her dirty deeds became easier. And, after some unfortunate bumps in the road, she learns who she truly is, the person living within her heart. Once she is able to love herself, she is able to realize love in its pure form with the man standing in front of her.

Ms. Ardigo wrote another love story that pulls at the heartstrings and has one thinking over their own experiences, making this a real story for everyone. Don't add this to your TBR list - one-click and read it today!

I was so excited when I learned the third book in the "Fix It or Get Out" series by Christine Ardigo was coming out, and was delighted to be given an ARC so that I could be among the first to read this next book in the series. All of her books feature women who are metamorphosing into who they want to be and should be, and the inevitable struggles that go along with that are so well written by Ms. Ardigo. What makes her characters come alive--and our main character in the book, Samantha, is no exception--is the humanity she brings to each one, along with the humor, the stupidity, the cleverness, the insecurity, and the claiming of self amid self-doubt. These are women we can relate to--so realistically written, warts and beauty marks both on display.

Samantha is a woman who easily trips on guilt, especially guilt laid out by her narcissistic mother. She knows her life is in the doldrums, and she tries different ways to change that status. She admires the beautiful, raucous, and self-assured co-worker Cara, and her night-clubbing, fast-paced life that has Cara with her pick of men swirling around. But Samantha isn't Cara, her heart wants true love, not a one-night stand, and her head tells her she deserves better. Her journey through self-improvement and growth made me want to bop her in her head at times, because she made some bad decisions--but then, don't we all make bad decisions along the way? It's how we grow, how we change our perceptions, and how we follow our hearts that leads us to where we are meant to go. That's where Christine Ardigo's talent in character development shines through; because even as Samantha makes mistakes, she is doing the work, giving us reason to cheer for her. The author keeps the story moving at a pace that made me want to keep turning the pages, to see if Samantha goes off the rails or flies right. The way Ms. Ardigo writes kept me engrossed in the story and invested in all of the characters' lives. Another winner!

This is Ms. Ardigo's third, and last, book in The Fix It or Get Out Series,. and like the other two stories, this one is filled with memorable, well-developed characters. Samantha Hart's character was very relatable to me, as I also grew up with low self-esteem. The unwanted child in a family. But Sam also had the burden of still living with a mother who inflicted nothing but guilt on her daughter.

Questioning her pathetic existence, envying her supposedly best friend's life, Sam starts emulating Cara's lifestyle, which leads her into some really bad choices. Like Lou and Bruce, you’re typical one-night stand mentalities. Thinking sex is the only path to love, Sam ultimately realizes her decisions have led to a bad reputation, and she's just as unhappy if not more, than she was before. Deep down inside, she knows she's not being true to herself.

Then Cooper gets hired as the manager for the hospital’s kitchen where Sam works. I really liked his character too, as he also had his own baggage, trying to please everyone but himself. His concept of what bridges mean was quite inspirational.
Every good story must have conflict, and this one has plenty. Between Lou, Bruce, Cara, Cooper, Rosyln, and her mother, Sam is always butting heads, trying to find her place. But her worst enemy is herself. Cara is a strong secondary character. I came to hate her, pity her and then wept for her at the end.

What I didn't like: sometimes there were antics Sam did I just couldn't see someone her age doing. Like stuffing her face full of food and taping her mouth shut. To me, these seemed contrived and unrealistic.
I recommend this book for anyone who loves chick lit and lots of drama. I give it 4 feathers.
