Title: Fate’s Love (Fate’s Love #1)
Author: L.A. Cotton
Genre: New Adult Romance
When you meet that one person in the world meant for you… you should hold onto them.
Olivia Bannon walked away.
When 17-year-old Livy meets Ethan, she can’t deny their inexplicable connection. Lost in his dark, intense eyes and smile-to-die-for, Livy never thought she would feel like this. It almost makes her want to break her childhood vow, but Livy knows happily ever after is just an illusion, and despite her heart wanting Ethan, her head is telling her to stick with the plan. The one that doesn’t include falling in love. Period.
Eight years later, Livy finds herself back in her hometown. After the way she left things, the last time they were together, Livy is anxious about seeing Ethan again. It shouldn’t come as a shock to discover he has finally moved on—but it hurts. A lot. Accepting that she will never get the chance to put things right isn’t easy, but it’s not until life comes crashing down around her that Livy realizes what she could’ve had. Left broken, alone, and depressed, only one person can pull her out—the guy she thought she’d pushed away one too many times.
Livy has finally realized that you can’t fight fate… Some things are just meant to be. Is this finally her time to get it right, or has Livy missed her last chance with Ethan?
This was a sweet romance. I always love a good, old fashioned romance. Ethan was a great character. His sweetness and honesty was so endearing! He was so supportive even when Livy made it VERY difficult! The book spans 8 years of their lives, and it really keeps you engaged!
There is a lot of teenage angst in this book. I think it was realistic given that the book starts with Livy and Ethan in high school. This is a straight forward, angsty romance and sometimes, you just need that! Nothing supernatural, no serial killers to run from, no cheating. It is just a pure romantic story about 2nd (3rd, 4th) chances for love!
Livy was seriously annoying at times. I did understand her hesitance for relationships but she was seriously getting on my nerves!!! Ethan was so amazing there were times I could not figure out why he hadn’t given up on her years ago! She was difficult to like at times.
