  • My Musings

    Thanks go to the publisher, author and Net-Galley for the complimentary copy of Fated Always for the purpose of reading and reviewing prior to publication. My opinions are my own, and no one has influenced them. Fated always is a novel with plenty of action and suspense. The pacing pulled me in from the start and kept my in its thrall until the last page. The writing flows smoothly with the just the right amount of description. Tala Gael’s character is a loner due to the secrets she keeps and her career choice as a researcher of wildlife. Tala is satisfied with her life and her current boyfriend, but when her childhood friend roars into town, all that changes. Her confusion when she realizes there’s a strong attraction between them helped me to become vested in her character. Sawyer Gavin has returned to take over the veterinarian practice in town. He and Tala were best friends as children, but now he wants more than friendship. I enjoyed his determination to pursue the attraction between them. The romance takes a while to develop because of the man in Tala’s life, but when she discovers he’s nothing like the man she believed him to be, things heat up quickly. The passion between the couple is combustible, and I enjoyed the love scenes. The suspense is ever building and kept me reading as fast as possible. The scene when her boyfriend turns ugly when she attempts to break it off with him, is exciting and graphic, turning this into a bit of a thriller. The climax when well above my expectations, making this book a fantastic read. If you enjoy romantic suspense with a great second chance romance, and with engaging characters, then you will love Fated Always as much as I did. This is book 4 in Ms. Flade’s Fated series, but reads well as a stand-alone novel. Happy reading!

  • Could Not Put This Book Down!!!

    I seriously could not put this book down and read it in just one sitting!!! This book is full of strong, raw, emotional elements built up with deep character entanglements and shocking plot twists that kept this reader on the edge of her seat!!! I have had the privilege of now reading all four books in The Fated Book Series. I have loved every single one, each for a different reason, but they all have been exemplary and satisfying reads!! This book follows the new generation of Trappers’ Cove. This book focuses on the children of the main characters that were featured in the previous books as they are now the adults living, working, and dating in Trappers’ Cove. OMG!!! I loved that this story centered on Tala and I couldn’t believe how grown up she was!!! I love her working for the National Park Service and studying the wolves to bring a better understanding about their pack structure, family dynamic, endangerment status and ultimately have it lead to greater respect and protection for their species. It was just so fitting, so her. And of course, Sawyer too!!! I love that he decides to move back to Trappers’ Cove permanently and buy Benickie’s Veterinary Clinic. I am a huge animal lover so having both main characters working in jobs devoted to helping animals just totally won me over regardless lol!! I loved Tala and Sawyer together!! There was an obvious attraction that even though they grew up together and have known each other for years it felt natural, not awkward to see them as more than just best friends. I really appreciated that the author took her time developing this romance and didn’t rush it, especially since Tala already had a boyfriend, Derrick. When this book starts out Tala is dating Derrick and right from the start you can feel the awkward stiffness on the page as she’s drifting off not paying attention to him while they are eating at the diner. It isn’t long before she hears Sawyer’s motorcycle roaring into the parking lot and without a word she runs out of the diner and into Sawyer’s arms. Yeah, awkward!!! There’s also another scene with Tala and Derrick where he basically compares getting over a death in the family to getting over a cold and even admits to finding Tala’s big research grant that means everything to her as something that doesn’t interest him and doesn’t want to hear about it. Wow!!! Red flags are going up… Maybe it’s just me, but I instantly got a bad hit off of Derrick and he sooooo would have out of here!!! There is a domestic violence scene in this book, and although it is thoroughly described, it is still respectful, honest, realistic, and considerate to both parties. I usually throw some red flags up if the author doesn’t issue a warning label on their book blurb, because triggers are real, and a reader can instantly have a reaction when things like that jump out at them. However, as a dv survivor and in my opinion, having read the said passage, I felt it wasn’t to a heinous level of affliction or grievance and can be read without distress. But again, that’s just my opinion, others may find it more disturbing. So, like with the other books in this series, there is a paranormal element in the story line. Tala has a special talent that allows her to communicate with wolves. When I first started reading this series and saw there was a small paranormal twist in each book, I was a bit skeptical. However, Flade found a way to creatively integrate these unique abilities in a fun and clever fashion that only added depth to the character’s profile. I also loved the author’s writing style as she was superior on detail and the way she immerses you into her storytelling. Her writing draws you in and keeps you fully engaged as the story unfolds!! There are some predictable scenes. However, there are still a few very unexpected twists and turns that you won’t see coming! This book is Book Four of The Fated Series. This book can be read as a standalone, however, there are significant character and story line overlap from the previous book. Even with the overlaps, this book wouldn’t be confusing to new series readers, but I personally would think it would make more sense and have a stronger impact on the understanding of this book series, if you started with book one first. All in all, I really enjoyed reading this book and would absolutely recommend it! I think all romantic, suspense readers will like this book too – and this book series! So, add it to your TBR List and get to reading - you won't be disappointed! **Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this book and have voluntarily provided an honest, and unbiased review in accordance with FTC regulations.**

  • Special people, special town. Enjoyed it.

    Tala and Sawyer were meant to be but she took longer to accept it. I loved Tala's strength, independence, and her love for the wolves. Sawyer was straightforward, patient, and determined. Together they made a great couple. I enjoyed the secondary characters, their family, friends, rivals-turned-acquaintances, as well as this little town of Trapper's Cove. I look forward to more books in this series. I received a copy of this story through Goddess Fish Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
