Overview

On her own since the day she turned eighteen and left the group home where she grew up, twenty-five year old Alexa Ryan has made a comfortable life for herself. She has a great job, the perfect apartment, every material possession a girl her age could desire. Unfortunately, she also has an unusual condition which has forced her to keep everyone at a distance.

Ethan Kellar has spent his entire life running from destiny. When he was just a boy, a powerful seer prophesied his role in events which would determine the outcome of the secret war his people had been fighting for centuries. A role he was determined not to accept, leading him to avoid letting anyone get too close, until the night Alexa fell into his arms.

Drawn to her in a way he has never experienced, Ethan decides to take the ultimate risk by trusting Alexa and revealing to her all he truly is. Thinking she is an ordinary woman, he believes she could be his key to preventing the prophecy from being fulfilled and allowing him to live the life he has always wanted, one he chooses. Having been so consumed with the desire to determine the course of his own life he wants no less for Alexa and knows he must tell her everything, give her a choice. Before that happens, they surrender to the intense physical attraction between them and he realizes too late, in trying so hard to change his fate, he may have set the events of the prophecy in motion.

In that moment, Ethan makes the most difficult decision of his life and does the only thing he can to save Alexa. He walks away.

Consumed by grief, Alexa falls into a deep depression until she learns that her brief encounter with love resulted in a child and somehow finds the strength to put herself back together for the sake of her baby Chloe.

Nearly two years after Ethan walked out Chloe develops an unexplained illness that sends Alexa in search of anything that can help. Her pursuit leads her back to Ethan and thrusts her into his dark and mysterious world, unlocking the secrets of her past and revealing threats to their future. Together, Alexa and Ethan fight to protect Chloe and their love, but there is one battle Ethan fights alone as he struggles to choose his own path and avoid the choices of fate.

    I was really intrigued as to where this story was heading, i liked Alexa from the start even with her 'strange ability' (how sometimes i wish i could do it hehe). Ethan then came along....mmmmmm....my imagination ran wild haha. Omg the chemistry between them both was something else!! Even after the secrets started to come out they still didnt change with each other.
    Baby Chloe was just adorable :-) and Tilly what a great dog, the bond between the two was sooooo sweet.
    I would of never have guessed the link between Ethan and Dr Kline (Elijah) :-O shocker!!!
    I liked the way the story kept going backwards through Alexa's memorys, sometimes i did get a little confused but i got it in the end :-)
    I loved the comment Alexa said to Ethan ........."Actually, right now the popular vampires sparkle in the sun and drink the blood of animals,"........ I couldnt help myself from laughing out LOUD!!

    This book was a remarkable story about choices and fate which really messed up my feelings, the ending was not what i expected and i cant wait to see if they beat fate in the next book.....

    I was given this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP)

    I was given this book for an honest review (LOP)

    This book was not what I expected! I love the chemistry and connection between Alexa and Ethan. Chloe and Tilly are my favorite duo, however. The bond between an animal and a child is unbreakable. I love how real it was. The scene with Chloe and her hand on Tilly's heart had me in tears...a lot of tears!!

    The story wasn't as original as I would have liked...a lot of the end reminded me of twilight, and I didn't like that. I really, really freaked at the last 5 pages of the book. It was a major cliffhanger and I can't wait to read the next book in this series!

    I just finished reading Choices of Fate.  Alexa is a strong woma

    I just finished reading Choices of Fate. 
    Alexa is a strong woman, even though she doesn't understand what was happening after she met Ethan at the club. She still carries on when she was unable to find him. Not knowing what he was at that point in time, she still hung on. The one day she did have Ethan at her apartment she was happy unlike her childhood. Becoming pregnant was probably a shocker to her because Ethan said " I'm mostly sterile" lol

    Chloe was a blessing to Alexa until she started having feeding issues. Not wanting her mind to wander Alexa tried to forget her thoughts of what could be causing it.  Chloe is a intelligent, powerful, and intriguing child. 

    Ethan tried to keep them safe by leaving, and trying to watch from a far. However when fate stepped in when he has no other option but to protect them. Ethan's family is wonderful and full of life. They care for one and other like Alexa has missed out on when she was raised in the boarding houses for children who lost their parents.

    Happiness was short lived and the cliff hanger has you screaming for the answers. Can't wait for the next book in the series to come out.

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This vampire book is a bit different than others that I have read. Ethan is a vampire but he was born from vampires, not bitten and infected. He falls in love with Alexa and she falls in love with him. But, they do it within a day or so of meeting each other. Alexa is a telepath, meaning she can read other peoples minds, but she can't read Ethan's. After Ethan assures Alexa that he cannot get her pregnant and they spend several days over the weekend together. Ethan leaves suddenly after tasting Alexa's blood after biting her during sex. Alexa finds out she's pregnant within a few weeks after he leaves. She manages to have the baby, Chloe, and take care of her on her own until Chloe hits about 9 months old. It's when she takes Chloe to a special doctor for her sudden colic and other odd symptoms that things get weird and complicated.

    I can not give away some of the other things that happen in the book as they would be total spoilers. Let's just say that Alexa finds out something shocking about her and the parents that seemingly abandoned her at birth, she finds out that her daughter Chloe may be something special as well and also has other vampires trying to kill her and take her baby. There is a LOT happening in this book, but it doesn't seem like too much. It all seems like necessary storyline. I really like the storyline, the action, the characters, etc. It is a really good vampire book and I really can't wait to see what happens in future installments.

    I really enjoyed this book. It is very well written. It has great characters and a very nice story. I wish that I knew beforehand that it ended with a major cliffhanger. Now I have to wait until the fall to find out what happens next!

    I think it is truly romantic. A girl finding a place to belong and finds it in the arms of a man who loves her. I give this story a ten on the romance meter and hope to get it.
