SYNOPSIS

Some believe in fate, others not so …

Who would think that a simple car accident could determine someone’s destiny?

But when Mia Tandy meets Nicholas Devlin their worlds are
Automatically changed.

Falling in love should be simple, should be natural and joyous, but,
As they are from different worlds, there are many obstacles thrown
In their way.

There is one thing though, that no one can control and that is
Undying love.  Fate has brought these two together, and class is keeping
Them apart.

What they don’t realize is they are connected, neither one
Of them knowing this.

One person holds the key to this secret.

A secret from yesteryear, this secret and this secret alone
Holds the answer to how their destiny will

Evolve.
 
 
 
MY REVIEW
 
 
 Nicolas and Mia meet by accident.
No, really.
A car accident!
 
What they don't realize is they have a secret pull on one another, and not only is the chemistry there, it's fun, easy, and the banter is really enjoyable.
 
Of course, there is a little thing called "life", that comes into play. 
With them being from different sides of the tracks, it's no easy romance.
If we can even call it that??
It's more of what we know could be if their lives weren't aligned the way they are, but we're rooting for them on all the same, and when certain situations arise we're thinking "NO!  You shouldn't be doing that" or "What are you thinking??  You should be _____!"
MmHmm...
*Nods Head*
 
After reading; I feel somewhat on edge.
Not in a bad way. If that makes any sense?
There wasn't a massive cliffhanger, but there is one!
 
It tied up some loose ends, but there are still plenty of questions rolling around, and leaves us wanting more.
I, for one, have to have the "more"!!
 
 
I loved this story and am really looking forward to seeing how Nicolas and Mia's future pans out.
 
Darn, Fate!
Having a mind of it's own.
 

 
4.5 Stars for me!!
 
ABOUT THE AUTHOR


 Not to stray from the common Author cliché, I loved to read as a child – I actually excelled in reading from a young age.  This was definitely to my advantage.  In saying that I only enjoyed reading “happily ever after stories.”


As I grew older my pleasures turned to “teen romance stories” with the obvious transition being heavy love stories and of course Jackie Collins’ novels.

Then due to relationship and work commitments my reading all but ceased until my children were at an age where I could steal and hour or two (which then became and hour or four). 

A few years ago I discovered the Twilight Saga, this kept my thoroughly entertained for years as I read and re-read numerous times… Enter 50 Shades.

Whilst I was a little fearful to read this erotic tale, something tugged at my inner thoughts and I succumbed, like everyone around me falling for the likes of one Christian Grey. 

I continued from that moment reading many many stories and getting involved with Indie Authors from around the globe – something then happened to me.  I awoke one Saturday morning with a whole story fixed in my mind.  This had happened to me a lot over the years but this story was so clear and concise and I acted on in with the inspiration of the Indie Authors.

That’s when my first novel Majestic Pearls was born – it has grown from there and is a beautifully work in progress.  In the interim, I wrote my current story, a novella entitled Que Sera Sera.

When I'm not at my desk, I'm reading – beta reading, or just plain reading.  As a full time mother and wife my life is very full.  My other passion, other than writing and family is Music … music from yesteryear is my genre.
