Book Review: Fate - Adam and Evette by Maya James

The Maya James $0.99 Blog Tour. Fate: Adam & Evette will be $0.99 during the tour!


Fate: Adam & Evette 

Fate is a fast paced novella about two people from opposite ends of the country trying to support each other as friends while denying their instant attraction for one another.

Adam and Evette have both recently ended relationships that were never meant to last. Each of them is longing for something more intense and meaningful, and fate brings them together online in a support system for rebounding daters. The only problem—they’re perfect for each other but too far away to do anything about it.

Will they help each other find love with someone else, or will Fate completely take over their destiny?

- "In 117 pages this little story hits all the right notes. I was laughing out loud, smiling, cheering and sobbing."

- "If you do nothing else this week – put Fate on your list of books to read in 2015"
- "from about the 10% mark, i knew this was a 5-star book"



My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:

“The passing silence after that is so thick and heavy that you can hear its emptiness.  This what you get for dating a girl you met in Anger Management class.”

“That was a broken heart ago.  I’m all healed now, but not all of the pieces went back in the exact places they were in before and I’m a different person because of it.”

“I didn’t love you long, but I loved you more than anyone has ever been loved before.”

My Review:

This is my first Maya James read and it took my breath away.  I enjoyed her characters, unique story, humor, delicious steam, and sneaky romance.  But she broke my heart…  I am devastated… and will be in mourning and wearing black for week.  However, I would read it again and have already one clicked her entire listing of books.  The sensual scene had me gasping, sputtering, and fanning myself – oh my!  The story was an easy read, well-written, absorbing, and short - yet just the right length to say what it needed to say.   I wanted more, but then, I always do when reading something exceptional.   Adam is my new BBF for life!

Indie Author of contemporary romance and suspense novels such as the Charity Series (Charity's Warrior, Charity’s Secrets, and Charity’s Passion) and a novella titled Fate: Adam & Evette.

East coast born and raised, I'm married, extremely happily, with 4 kids, 3 of which are now young adults (not sure when that happened).

I’m a COO in my technology-based "day job,” which requires a mix of technical and creative writing for both internal and client-facing materials, but it was not satisfying my artistic spirit. Writing the “Charity” series has been absolutely fulfilling and exciting.

My favorite writing takes place on my phone while lying on the Southernmost Beach in Key West, where I try to go at least twice a year.
