Creating Fate by Rachel Firasek

She gave away her heart…
Giving her heart to a mortal wasn't something the First Fate planned. Losing him nearly shattered her soul. Upon his death, Clotho swore never to love—or weave life—again. Hoping she'll change her mind before it's too late, Zeus commands the spinner of life to take a much needed vacation from her immortal responsibilities.

He had to hide his...
Dane is close to cracking the drug ring he's spent the last two years infiltrating, but needs to perform one last heist to meet the head man and prevent an impending war. An undercover agent, he’s now on the run from drug lords, thieves and with the very woman whose tears make him forget his purpose.

Together they’ll find a way back from the dark.
Chloe will have to put her trust in the man she believes may have killed her fiance, or face an eternity on Earth. Without the desire for life, hope could slip through the cracks of time if he doesn’t love away her sorrow.

About the Author

Rachel’s writing career began at the impressionable age of twelve with a poem dedicated to the soldiers of Desert Storm. A dark macabre affair that earned her a publication in an anthology and many raised eyebrows from family and friends, she hid her poetry and artistic style for years…

Tucked away in the heart of Central Texas, with the loving support of her husband and three children, she dusted the cobwebs from her craft. Returning to those twisted regions of her mind, she creates dark urban fantasies and soul-searching paranormal romance.

When I first learned of the "Unspun Trilogy", I was stoked to read it based on the concept alone. I'm happy to say Creating Fate did not disappoint! I really liked Chloe - her struggle to deal with the loss of the human she loved and her guilt at being attracted to another. The fact that both Chloe and Dane were determined to protect the other was also a good touch. All in all, a great start to the series. NOTE: I also posted this review on Goodreads.

It’s no secret that I love Greek myth and endeavor to read any and all books covering the subject, so when I heard about Creating Fate, I jumped right on it. The concept of a series of three novellas called Unspun featuring the three Fates and their various love interests grabbed me and I immediately purchased myself a copy of this book and read it in one sitting. It wasn’t exactly what I hoped for, but I didn’t dislike it. It just wasn’t developed enough for me, nor was it very believable romance-wise. In general, not much happened in terms of setting the reader up to believe that Chloe (the Fate goddess Clotho) and Dane (the love interest) could fall madly in love with each other in like, a day. I’m down with the love-at-first-sight fairytale business when it comes to romance novels as long as it’s believable. For some reason, I didn’t believe it. Maybe it was because at first Chloe wanted nothing to do with Dane because she was still mourning the death of her previous love, but in the course of a few hours, she was sleeping in the same bed with him, sans a single article of clothing. But to be fair, I have seen this done before in romance books and totally loved the fact that they cut the BS and got right to the romance. I know it would’ve worked here if the characters had been more developed and I had been more invested in what happened to them. But as it stands, I’m not. With that said, the cover was gorgeous and the writing and editing was very, very good. There was a little bit of humor, action and adventure, and you get to meet a few other Greek gods that you may be familiar with (I, of course, was). I wished I could’ve seen Chloe use more of her goddess powers, but she has two sisters, Lachesis and Atropos (who is my favorite Fate), so I’m sure I’ll get my fill of mythical magic with their books. And yes, I’m reading the entire Unspun series. Creating Fate is definitely worth a read if you want something quick and romantic (though the romance seems forced). I’m interested to see what happens in Stealing Fate and Chasing Fate.

Cover is stunning. Book could be developed more.

If you were Zeus and one of your daughters, who happened to be one of the Fates, had her heart broken and refused to ever return to Earth, what would you do? Maybe you would contrive a mission for her to find her sisters, who just happen to be on Earth. Enter Dane, an undercover cop working his last great sting. He’s sexy, hot, kind of pushy and arrogant in a completely disarming way and he stirs things in Chloe that she never thought could happen again, so of course she is prickly and snarky, which seems to draw him in more! Their banter is to die for, teasing and tense and just plain fun to read! Creating Fate proves once again that Rachel Firasek must love her job! She creates reading with warmth, spice and humor, all mashed up with her own style and attitude! Her characters are charming, sexy and know how to deal with the action Ms. Firasek gives them! She knows the chemistry a heroine needs in her hero!

This is a very sweet love story. Chloe is the fate of life who is too heart broken to create life till she meets her true love. The only problem i have would be that the story is just to short.

Creating Fate was full of action and romantic anticipation mixed in with a little humor. I love that this story is based on the fates with this book concentrating on Chloe, the fate of life. Chloe has just lost the love of her life and then Dane comes into the picture. She immediately feels attracted to him and that would be my one complaint. For having just lost her love, she starts having feelings for Dane awfully quick. I know, I know, it's a short story so things need to happen quick, but it took some of the believability away for me. With that being said, Dane is easy to love. Creating Fate by Rachel Firasek  was provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

Main character is introduced as Clotho. Pages later her name becomes Chloe. Very disconcerting. I had to go back to see if I was crazy.
