Two stories so deeply intertwined, you’ll think you know how they intersect…but you’ll be wrong….
Zack Martin
The day I met Emily Bennett my whole world changed. Sure, we were just kids, but I was old enough to know my life would never be the same. She was my best friend. My destiny. My fate. I wasn’t wrong…I just didn’t know how twisted fate could be.
Nikki Fallon
After the death of my mother, moving from my dark and dreary trailer park to sunny California, I was focused on one thing – finding a sister I’d only just learned existed. Falling in love with him wasn’t part of the plan. But he filled a void I never knew was possible to fill. He had to be my fate. My destiny. Until the day I finally found out who my sister was…and how twisted fate could be.

My Review
I have loved Vi Keeland since I have read her MMA series, this time, it’s different considering she paired with another author to read this wonderful book.

Guilt was eating the both of them – as for Zack, he had been in loved with Emily ever since she moved in their neighborhood eons ago, but people change, and he no longer sees the girl he fell in love with once. But when a misunderstanding happened right before the accident – guild had made a permanent residence in his heart and head, until Nikki came along.

Nikki – I didn’t know how she made it. Perhaps because she had Ashley, and a whole lot of strength within her. But to take care of her mother at a young age, with all those illnesses makes her a hero in my eyes. She’s a very strong girl who is about to be given the biggest surprise of her life when she had lost the biggest part of it. Leaving Texas for California was a bit hard, but she needed to do it in order to find the sister she never met – what she didn’t expect was to find love as well. It had to be destiny. It had to be fate. Until, she was finally slapped back into reality and realized who her sister was, and how everything was deeply tangled.

I have been looking forward in reading this one the moment I have read the blurb. Everyone has their own way of coping. You will like Zack and Nikki. Both have experienced loss, mourned in their own different ways, but fate had pushed them together to discover that there is more to life after a devastating and profound loss. It may have took some time, with a whole lot of bumps in the road and some misunderstanding – but in the end everything is where it should be. I was happy that both of them have friends to lean on, and soon realized that their families are there willing to help them in every way they can.

It is full of unexpected surprise and twists. Yes, it may have felt somewhat familiar, and you might get the feeling you have read this stuff before, but you wait. Just as when you thought you had the idea of what was happening, or you have the clue of what was going on – they’d surprise you with something else.


It’s a page-turner type of novel – you would be under its spell, wondering how would they cross paths, and what could be their common ground. It’s compelling, surprising, and worth all those anticipation. Vi Keeland & Dylan Scott made a great team in writing one amazing read you couldn’t put down.

Excerpt
He looks up and I watch his eyes take me in.  Slowly.  They rake over me, dropping from my eyes to my glossed lips down to my exposed shoulders.  Taking his time, he follows the neckline of my simple, yet body contouring sundress, lingering when he reaches my full breasts.  I’m sufficiently covered, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t aware that the dress showed off my assets well.  Tight around my chest, gathering snuggly at the waist, with a scant amount of cleavage.  Just enough coverage to still leave something for him to imagine.  And I watch his face change as his imagination takes off running.
His eyes drift down my legs, tanned now from the eternal California sun.  Momentarily he’s lost in what he sees and doesn’t even notice I’m watching him leer.  Totally worth the extra effort getting ready tonight, I couldn’t be happier at the reaction I get.  Eventually, his eyes make their way back up to mine and I arch one eyebrow, letting him know he’s been caught.  A normal reaction might be to look embarrassed or perhaps even flustered a little.  But not Zack.  Instead, he flashes me a wicked grin.  “You look incredible.”  He’s the one doing the leering, yet I’m the one who ends up blushing.

About the Authors


Vi Keeland is a native New Yorker with three children that occupy most of her free time, which she complains about often, but wouldn't change for the world. She is a bookworm and has been known to read her kindle at stop lights, while styling her hair, cleaning, walking, during sporting events, and frequently while pretending to work.  She is a boring attorney by day, and an exciting smut author by night!


Dylan Scott

Dylan Scott is a New York trial attorney, wife and mother of four.  She believes her job as a trial attorney is a subcategory to the field of entertainment more than law.   With a Bachelor's Degree in English Literature she believed teaching English was a destined career choice until she realized her life long talent of "argument" could actually be her job.   A recent, fairly boring, midlife crisis resulted in a brief stint as a middle school English teacher which confirmed that she wasn't ready to give up the law.   Dylan has also taught legal courses at the college level and worked with at-risk inner city youth in the roles of mentor and coach.  She is co-author Vi Keeland's biggest fan.
