UNEXPECTED FATE by Harper Sloan — JENN’S REVIEW

unexpected fate

WHY I READ IT

Cohen Cage was the biggest scene stealer in the Corps Security series. I couldn’t wait to see how he grew up!

WHAT I RATED IT

WHAT IT’S ABOUT

Have you ever felt like you were living your life for a future that was predetermined? Like there was some bigger picture you just prayed you would someday see clearly? That picture has been crystal clear to me since I was old enough to recognize it for just what it was.

Or I should say recognize him for who he was.

I’ve loved Cohen Cage since I was a small child. He’s been my everything for the last twenty-two years. I’ve loved him through every girlfriend he’s ever brought home. Through his college years and then mine. I’ve loved him through two deployments. And ever since the day I told him how I felt, he’s acted like I’m a stranger.

My name is Danielle Reid, and it’s time for me to get my man.

Our future is an unexpected fate, and no matter what our parents, siblings, and friends say…it’s going to be worth every second of the fight to make it happen.

JENN’S REVIEW

No longer is Cohen Cage a cape wearing little boy… he’s now a 27 year old,  Special Forces, dirty talking, hot alpha, , cape wearing MAN. Cohen Cage is ALL grown up. Cohen was one of my favorite characters from the series and he reminded me of my own son, so after screaming in jubilation when Harper announced she would be writing about Cohen and Dani, my next thought was that it might be a bit weird, considering the last time we saw Cohen he was just a kid. That kid is gone. A distant memory.

“Ready or not, Cohen. Ready. Or. Not.”

Dani Reid has spent her entire life in love with Cohen, not that it mattered if she was interested in anyone else. Her father sat at the door, gun in hand, and never let anyone though.  While Cohen and Dani always had a special bond, their age difference made it difficult for any feelings to come to the surface. Now that age is no longer a factor, Danielle Reid is out to get her man and she is pulling no punches.

“I’ve never wanted someone as fiercely as I want you, Dani-girl.”

Cohen knows that there hasn’t been anyone but Dani for him. He knows what he wants, and he’s going to get it. But when he is shipped overseas for an indeterminate amount of time, is it fair to start a relationship with his dream girl when there is a possibility of him never returning?

Harper Sloan gets better with each book she puts out. Her writing has grown tremendously and she has this ability to create these characters that are NOTHING like us, yet we connect and relate to them like we ARE them. Harper weaves these storylines and creates this insane drama, that if any other author tried to pull off, would look ridiculous. With each and every one of her books, I am completely sucked in from the first word to the last. I love how she gives you little glimpses in books to come. A glance here between two secondary characters, or a line that could be said in passing, but you just know that it’s the start of another story line. It’s just perfection each and every time. We get to visit with all our favorite characters from the series and Cohen and Dani will just melt your heart.

“I love you.”
“And I you.”
