Some couples are just meant to be, and that’s the case with Kate and Nick. Author Carly Phillips made me smile over and over again in FATED. Kate’s been burned by love before and she’s understandably wary when Nick — who’s been in love with her best friend Faith — starts asking her out. I loved that Nick pulled out all the stops when it came to trying to win Kate over. Yes, Nick had it bad for Faith in high school, but there’s no question that as an adult he’s head over heels for the woman he never saw as more than a friend. I adored Kate and Nick together and each time I read FATED their love story makes me smile.
FATED is a novella that takes place between the first two books in Ms. Phillips’s SERENDIPITY series. While FATED can easily be read as a standalone, fans of SERENDIPITY will enjoy revisiting some of their favorite characters from that book, particularly Faith, who helps Nick with his campaign to get Kate’s attention.
Like all the SERENDIPITY stories, FATED is warm, sensual and fun. I absolutely adored Kate and Nick’s story and I look forward to re-reading it again and again and again.
