Christian Kent has many labels – warrior, protector, friend, lover – but the one label he never wanted was mate. In his lifetime, the only girl he has ever loved, was the one he couldn’t have. He left her to protect her heart, but his own will always belong to her.
As a girl, the one person she believed would never hurt her broke her heart. Now a warrior, she’s loving life and living for the next adventure. She’s put the past behind her, including the man who walked out of her life.
Fate brought them together once, and it’s not done with them yet. When they are suddenly thrown together to battle a lethal new foe, sparks fly and old feelings resurface. Chris will have to work hard to heal the rift between them. But will she be able to let go of the old heartbreak and open her heart to him again? Can they come together before the threat they are facing tears them apart forever?
** This book is considered Upper YA due to some mature content.
Finally! Finally the book is here, the one that we've all been waiting for ever since Chris, or rather "Dimples", has been laughing about Nikolas and his somewhat rocky start with Sara. Famous last words indeed...
Somehow it seems as if Chris never expected this bonding and mating thing to be so very difficult even though Nikolas and Sara should have been proof enough that finding and claiming your mate is not always just a question of rainbows and unicorns.
When Chris finally realizes that this is it, this girl is his mate, well, his potential mate, he also realozes that no matter how stormy the ride, this might just be the one girl that he can't walk away from. Oh, and Nikolas might be in for some popcorn and fun along the way.
I should say that I really really love this series. From the first page of the first book I was hooked and with each book that came out, I loved this series even more. Each and every one of those books drew me in from the moment I opened it. I laughed (a lot) with the characters, I cheered them on, I was worried, I cried, I was upset and furious and I loved every single minute of it. Soooo.... Fated was long anticipated and I had certain expectations and hopes - and I wasn't disappointed. This was once again a book that I never put down till the last page, but literally read even while walking around with my e-reader in hand.
I had been waiting for Chris' story and I wanted someone for him who would be his match and who would lead him on a merry chase. His mate is all that and so much more. I fell in love with this character right from the start and it just felt right. Those two belong together and I had a lot of fun (and nail-biting suspense) following their bumpy way towards this goal.
Apart from the wonderful love story which would have been reason enough to love this book, it has a new twist and explores the amazing world of Sara and her friends further. As with the other books in this series, the complex and unique plot, the amazing writing and the wonderful characters of Fated, create one of those books that draw you in and in which you lose yourself for hours.
