Title: Twisted Fate
Author: Jessi Elliot
Publication: February 13th 2018
Being kidnapped by the leader of the fae really puts a dent in your senior year.
Aurora Marshall is sharp, witty, and always has a plan. Ready to finish her business degree and graduate, her life is going smoothly—until the night she meets Tristan Westbrook.
Tristan, the overbearing, gorgeous Fae Leader, and an admired businessman in the human world, is all kinds of dangerous. While he finds Aurora intriguing, her refusal to bend to his will keeps them locked in a constant power struggle.
Entering into a deal is the only way to escape Tristan’s clutches, which only plunges Aurora deeper into the fae world. With her future at stake, she is forced to handle his arrogance and extraordinary fae abilities as she fights to stay grounded in her mundane life.
Not to mention her struggle to ignore the growing attraction she knows she shouldn’t feel for the man who kidnapped her.
When people said college would be the most exciting time of her life, Aurora never thought this is what they meant.
MY RATING: 3.5/5 STARS
I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
When Jessi first approached me back in Summer of 2017 with hopes of letting me review her debut novel, I knew I had to get my hands on one. I loved romance but I didn’t know what urban fantasy was nor did I know if I actually liked fantasy novels. Thank goodness, a long list of fantasy arcs from publishers fell into my hands and converted me into a fantasy lover so I absolutely had no doubts when I read this book.
Twisted Fate tells the story of Aurora Marshall, a senior in university who has eyes on the prize also known as graduating and making a name for herself. While she may seem like a typical student, she has a family that is drained financially from taking care of her younger brother who is fighting cancer. That’s right, folks. It’s going to be a tear-jerker. Typically found in libraries cramming for the next exam or finishing up a project, Aurora is convinced to attend a party and it’s there were things go wrong. She’s kidnapped, exposed to the world of faes (mythical creatures who look eerily like humans but so much more beautiful), and finds herself on a quest to protect her best friend. Oh yeah, and it doesn’t hurt that the leader of the faes is smokin’ hot.
