**Blog Tour Review & Giveaway** FALLING FOR FATE (Second Chance #2) by Caisey Quinn


Fate Buchanan just wants to escape the constraints of her old life. After checking her mother into rehab and catching her fiancĂ© with her maid of honor the night before their wedding, she ran. Angry and hurt, she’s aching to do something reckless. 

Dean Maxwell is having one last summer of freedom before taking over his family’s multi-billion dollar medical conglomerate. When he sees a beautiful woman running down the beach alone after dark, he knows it’s not safe. So he does something impulsive. 

When their paths cross unexpectedly after a night of unbridled passion, neither of them can forget the memory of the affair they shared. What began as one night is about to become a whole lot more. 

*While part of the Second Chance series, this novel is a standalone.



Caisey Quinn is an Author that I have been in "fan-girl crush mode" with since I first read Girl with Guitar last year.  I thought I had read every single book of hers, but it seems that Last Second Chance (book 1 of this series) slipped right by me.  How that happened I have no clue, but I will be going back to read that soon (can't break my streak).  However, I am please to say that Falling for Fate is a true stand alone book.  I never felt like I was out of sync with the book or the characters, so reading this out of order is absolutely fine.  

Reading Falling for Fate (and the bonus novella that starts the book Falling for You) reminded me just how much I love Caisey Quinn's writing.  This book was just what I needed this week, something heart felt, addicting and hot!  There were some angst/drama moments but with the Caisey at the wheel this story never dragged or got stale, the back and forth and the chemistry really kept me flipping pages well into the night and then again in the carpool lane the next morning. I could not stop reading about Fate and Dean!  I had to know what happened next!  

One of the things that makes Falling for Fate special is it takes a pretty ordinary story about an inter-office romance and puts a new spin on it.  While this isn't my favorite of plots, I did enjoy the twists and turns Caisey Quinn added in.  The writing in this story was superb!  I love the way Caisey can take words and weave them into witty and engaging dialogue, while creating characters that you care about and connect with.  I am a fan!  

Fate and Dean were a great pair to watch, the tug of their chemistry, the pull of their responsibilities and their heat was worth the price of this book, but Falling for Fate was more than just a love story.  It was a about Fate finding out just how strong she is and learning that she can make it on her own and falling in love doesn't make you weak.  Caisey Quinn writes her characters young (early/mid twenties) so some of the challenges and issues they overcome are very realistic (if I can remember that far back).  Dean was an interesting character that made me crave more time with.  We get to know him throughout the book and what gets revealed really helps the reader understand why he struggles with the "more" aspect of Fate.  And the epilogue made me love him more!

Falling for Fate was a great read, intense heat and crazy awesome secondary characters.  I really enjoyed Fate and Deans journey and if you are looking for a quick read this weekend I recommend Falling for Fate (or any Caisey Quinn book).  If you have ever had the worst day of your life and think nothing good will ever come out of it, read Falling for Fate and see that sometimes the worst day of your life can bring you the best thing that has ever happened to you.
