Blog Tour: Falling For Fate (Second Chance #2) by Caisey Quinn (@CaiseyQuinn)~ Stacy's Review, #GIVEAWAY & Teasers
This is by far my favorite book in the Second Chance series, and as Caisey’s books go, this ranks up there pretty high. Everything from the flow of the storyline to the development of the AWESOME characters kept me flipping page after page. I really loved this book!
Fate is a young woman about to embark on this crazy thing called life with her shiny new husband at her side. That’s when the record scratches and the whole song is ruined! She walks in on her groom-to-be and her maid of not-so-honor doing the dirty on the night of her rehearsal dinner, and this obviously puts Fate in to a tailspin which in turn throws her right into the arms of Dean hot-ass-hell Maxwell.
Dean Maxwell is hot, rich, and in charge of a huge mutli-billion dollar company. He’s just hanging out with friends at his beach house when he see’s her.
“For an instant, he wondered if she might be one of those mythical creatures that devoured men.”
This pretty much sums up what Dean thought about Fate that night, she was there, and she was his for a moment. To him it was hot and beautiful and almost forbidden under the circumstances. It was quick and primal and before he knew it she was gone. This somewhat crippled Dean, he turned into a man on a mission to find this woman who floated in to his night and disappeared just as quickly as she entered it.
“I need to feel something,” “Something good. Something to make me forget.”
Fast Forward a little bit…it turns out that Fate’s new job is at the same multi-billion dollar company that Dean is in charge of, or is about to be in charge of. And when these two first realize this is when all the sparks and angst and fun, and drama (for me) begins! Dean and Fate don’t have your typical push and pull thing going on like so many other book couples do. Their battles with each other seem to be different in some way. There is obviously the no fraternizing with co-workers rule which everyone always seems to break anyways right? This is actually a big problem for Dean considering that his father is in charge of handing the company over to him. But that isn’t Dean’s only problem.
Every time Fate feels like she might be getting closer to Dean he pulls away, or runs away. Fate doesn’t really put up with this crap! In typical Caisey Quinn fasion, she wrote another very strong female MC. Fate knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to voice her opinions to Dean or anyone else for that matter. I love a strong non-whiney woman and Fate is exactly that.
She has some help along the way with the introduction of Gwen. Gwen is her new co-worker who quickly becomes her new best friend and I loooovvved her!!! Keaton is also a character that I loved, he’s Dean’s best friend and he just happened to be there that night when Dean’s mystical mermaid appeared out of the darkness. Keaton is seriously one of my most favorite secondary characters ever, he’s so funny and charming in his own crazy way. Keaton and Gwen have a cute little thing that develops as well and they honestly were so perfect in this story.
I just love when a book falls in to my lap and I don’t know what’s in store for me. This book was a perfect match for me and I’m pretty sure it will do the same for everyone else. It was sweet, and sexy and HOT!! Oh my how could I forget to mention that?? It’s HOT and Dean has quite the dirty mouth on him! Caisey really steams it up in this book and it’s sooooooo good! This book left me breathless in the best way, it’s about Fate finding herself and believing that good things exist and actually sustain. And for Dean he realizes that becoming a real man, that doesn’t run from his issues isn’t all that bad. Both of these characters have to face their fears in a different way, and how they do that is just so real and perfect.
“I felt it the moment I saw you. A compulsion like I’d never felt before, as if some unseen force propelled me toward you without my consent. I’ve felt it ever since.”
“Don’t leave me. Don’t run this time and I won’t either.”
