Fate isn’t a decision that we get to make.

Hunter Simms has overcome many hardships to get to where he is. He lost his parents as a teen and stepped up to take responsibility of raising his younger brother and sister. Hunter’s overcome every obstacle in his life except for one—Kate Richardson. Hunter’s loved Kate since the second grade, but one poor choice made years ago, has made him the person that she hates the most. 

Kate decided years ago that Hunter has no place in her life. A desperate call for help from her brother threatens to change Kate’s life forever. Can Kate trust Hunter to help, and will she trust fate to decide her future?


Kate’s brother, Brady, calls her in a rush, urging her to meet him at their family’s cabin as soon as possible. Kate hears he’s clearly in distress, so she hurries to meet him. When she arrives however it’s not her brother who she stumbles on.

A man named Hunter receives a same sort call only he misses the tone of Brady’s voice. He arrives early at the cabin and he too does not meet the person he is expecting.

And off you go to read what happens yourself 😛

Deciding Fate is more than meets the eye, when I scanned through the blurb I thought I was going to be reading a “second chance romance” but it’s much more than that. It’s got a bit of mystery and suspense going on as well, which surprised me. It was a pleasant surprise,  I’m glad that the story wasn’t all about two people reconnecting. That little bit sets it apart from other books in this genre. Not to mention the maturity of the characters, the way they handle what happened between them in the past. Made it an enjoyable to read.

I’m going to give it 3.5 couples
