[ Review Posted: Jan 08, 2013 ] - See all my reviews
Awesome new series!

Hedi Peacock is a Fae/Were hybrid who kicks ass & takes names. Her snarky attitude made this story such a pleasure to read. THE TROUBLE WITH FATE is filled with loads of kick-ass action and so many twists and turns...surprises and revelations that kept this reader's attention from the start.

What a brutal ending to twelve year old Hedi's childhood! All in one night, her father was slain by a Were and her mother was executed by Fae warriors who then kidnapped her twin brother. I could see how she blamed both sides because of what happened to her family. For ten years, Hedi's been living on the down-low with her bat-shit crazy aunt Lou. Now, suddenly the Weres have taken her aunt and are hunting Hedi once more. Who can she turn to for help? Why, no one else but Robson Trowbridge - the love of Hedi's life. Too bad he's also the Were she blames for her parents' deaths.

It's a rude awakening for Hedi to learn that she and Bridge are mates. She also has to learn some cold, hard facts: that things aren't always as they seem - people aren't always what you think - and memories sometimes get clouded.

The story called to me on so many levels. I loved Hedi and her snarky attitude. I was heartbroken for her and later for Bridge. Surely, Hedi and Bridge were meant to be together and would triumph in the end. Instead of an HEA though, we were given a "Happy For Now" ending, which left one hell of an opening for the sequel, but still, I was so disappointed I didn't get my HEA. Enough said about that. It didn't dampen my interest in the next book at all. Hopefully the author won't make me wait too long for the sequel?

I predict that all paranormal / fantasy fans are gonna love this book. It certainly hooked my interest enough to get me craving the sequel already. So grab yourself a copy! You'll love it!
