Love will be tested, hearts will break, and the horrors of the past will reveal a secret Izzy is desperate to keep hidden.
This has been a week of books that shred your emotions, piss you off, make you want to throw your kindle, and Defying Fate is another one of these; well for me at least. As much as I love drama, angst and roller coaster rides of emotions, I am torn about how I feel about Defying Fate. Without going into any spoilers or details I was having more “I want to slap all of these people with a baseball bat moments and are you kidding me with this shit moments.” Now with that being said the emotions that were pulled from me were intense and extreme but I kept on reading until the very end. With Defying Fate being this author’s debut novel I think she hit the ball out of the stadium when it comes to having readers feel the emotions she wanted us to feel; extreme emotions that is. I am anxious to see what this author comes up with next because if this is a glimpse into her writing ability then I think us readers are going to be in for one hell of a ride.

His wet, velvety tongue glistens as if inviting me in. I’m visibly shaken as every ounce of my body feels like it’s now lit on fire. Braxton is intoxicating.
