When you meet that one person in the world for you ... you should hold onto them.
Olivia Bannon walked away.
When 17-year-old Livy meets Ethan, she can't deny their inexplicable connection. Lost in his dark, intense eyes and smile to-die-for, Livy never thought she would feel this way. It almost makes her want to break her childhood vow, but Livy knows happily ever after is just an illusion, and depsite her heart wanting Ethan, her head is telling her to stick to the plan. The one that doesn't include falling in love. Period.
Eight years later, Livy finds herself back in her hometown. After the way she left things, the last time they were together, Livy is anxious about seeing Ethan again. It shouldn't come as a shock to discover he has finally moved on--but it hurts. A lot. Accepting that she will never get a chance to put things right isn't easy, but it isn't until life comes crashing down around her that Livy realizes what she could've had. Left broken, alone, and depressed, only one person can pull her out--the guy she thought she'd pushed away one too many times.
Livy has finally realized you can't fight fate... some things are just meant to be. Is this finally her time to get things right, or has Livy missed her last chance with Ethan?

~~~RECEIVED HONEST REVIEW~~~ Reading this book was like reading my life. It an amazing read! I wanted to shake Livy and tell her "STOP!! Stop running, it will only catch you later!" The emotions are real. If you have not picked up your copy, make sure you get one. You will love this one!
I lived reading this book, very emotional and kept me interested throughout! You could really feel the characters emotions throughout the book, there are a couple of grammatical errors, but easily over looked and doesn't take away from the story.
Fate's Love by L.A. Cotton is the first book in the series also titled Fate's Love. It is a sweet contemporary romance that features a second-chance love story of a sort. Olivia Bannon never really allowed her and Ethan's story to begin. Always shutting it down before anyone got too involved but as fate decided, they were already destined for each other. The story was told well. Well written and paced well if a little on the slow side. The characters were dimensional and genuine, and Olivia was definitely flawed. I took issue a few times with her inability to just take a chance on Ethan and by the end of the story I was beyond frustrated with her. But that just means that she was written well if such emotions towards fictional characters can be evoked. Low on steam and high on sweet and emotional this was an enjoyable read.
Took 8 years to get together Ethan wanted to get Be with her but Liv always something with her because of her father.
