About this ebook

He used to crush on her best friend. 

How can he convince her falling for him won’t crush her heart?

Though Nick Mancini flirts with her like it’s his second job, Kate Andrews tries to ignore the sexy construction worker. How could he be interested in her? Not that long ago, he was in love with Kate’s best friend, Faith. His muscled body and sexy dimples are hard to resist, but Kate refuses to be anyone’s rebound girl. Been there, done that, burned the road map.

Trouble is, Kate does believe love at first sight. But it has to be a two-way street, and she’s convinced she and Nick are destined to crash and burn.

Nick can pinpoint the exact moment he gave up on Faith, and really saw Kate for the first time. He’d ticked her off and she’d been seriously angry. He’d looked right into those flashing green eyes, and he was a goner. He’s pretty sure Kate feels the same way, but despite their off-the-charts chemistry, she rejects him at every turn.

But Nick is nothing if not persistent and the longing looks she sneaks his way don’t lie. She wants him, too. For Nick to break through Kate’s barriers, he’ll have to throw out the original blueprint and come up with a whole new plan. One that takes him off guard and cements their future.

Note: Fated was previously published under the same title by NYT bestselling author Carly Phillips. Contains a middle school English teacher who never makes the same mistake twice, and a hunky construction worker who understands every possible definition of the word nailed. Enjoy!

Nicole's Book Musings

This is the fourth book in the series. This was an enjoyable quick read. I just gobbled it right up. Nick and Kate's story was a book I didn't know I needed. Nick thought Faith was the woman for him, but he really didn't look hard enough what was right in front of him. Kate will not be second best to any man again and how can she compete with her best friend's lasting impression. Nick has a lot of work ahead of him to convince Kate how he truly feels. Drastic measures may need to be deployed.

This was a quick read but these two characters have been on a slow burn for the last few books. Nick has finally opened his eyes and seen Kate as a woman he desires but she isn't making things easy for him. Kate's having a hard time believing she is who Nick really wants, so turning down his advances protects her fragile heart. Thank goodness for friends who are willing to resort to kidnapping to help love blossom. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
