Good story about 94 pages long although thought it would belonger due to being 144 pg. Story starts off well but the ending is just a sentence long and makes you feel like i read all this for that. But i did like the characters and the story line.

This is such a sweet romance. Tiffany doesn't have time for love. She's been burned in the past and is focused on her career and cleaning up her younger sister's messes right now. But when she meets Luke, things change. She can't ignore him, especially when he comes to her rescue. Tiffany is tough and isn't used to guys helping her out like this, but Luke's good heart breaks through the walls she's put up. If you like a good romance, The Fate of A Marlowe Girl is a great, quick read.

This story was a pleasant surprise for me. First of all, I think this would be classified as a novella or short story--you will not invest a great deal of time in reading it. It is less than 50 pages! And usually I would mark a book down for being so short because most authors cannot write a well-developed story in such a limited number of pages. But you see, I had never read Beth Fred before. I believe this author is amazing! She packed so much into a short story that I forgot I was not reading a regular romance novel. The things I love about this book are quite numerous. This book has it all--the upright, uptight older sister; the bad girl younger sister; the romantic hero; a beautiful Mexican setting; even a bit of mystery and chance meeting. There are no sex scenes, and the profanity is practically nonexistent (if it is even there at all). I loved the story, and I could see this becoming an actual full-length romance novel and not spoiling the charm of the story. I love to see two characters with morals--it is so rare in this day and age. And it never came across as being sappy. I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

Beth Fred is a fellow New Adult author and when she asked me to read her debut novel, I couldn't say no. What she created is a strong framework for what has become an enjoyable series. This first installment introduces us to Tiffany and at the beginning I wanted to slap some sense in her. Why? Because she basically became a doormat for her younger sister, Kammy. She paid for Kammy's bachelorette party in Cancun despite the fact that Kammy is marrying Emmett, Tiffany's ex-boyfriend after Tiffany caught them making out on her couch. Pretty bad, right? But Kammy doesn't even behave herself in Mexico. Instead, she trashes a hotel room with her friends and a bunch of male strippers. The cops are called and she ends up in jail looking for her big sis to bail her out and pay for the damage to the suite. And Tiffany totally would have...if not for Luke. Tiffany's self esteem is at an all-time low when she meets this Latino heartthrob at the hotel bar. She can't believe he'd be into her. As they start to talk with each other, Tiffany lowers her defenses but she continues to believe that Luke is just playing with her and that nothing serious will come of their flirtation. She automatically assumes he's a jerk because he's so good looking. These lines capture her frame of mind perfectly, "He could still turn out to be a total loser - and guys that went for me usually were. Since I already knew this could only end in disappointment, I couldn't be hurt too badly." She shoots herself down before even giving Luke a chance. But Luke isn't like most guys. He helps her navigate the Mexican prison system. He gives her a place to stay when the hotel kicks her out. He cooks for her and introduces her to his family. Yet what he really does is loosen her up. Tiffany is an uptight accountant who loses herself in her work in order to escape from her relationship problems. She's trapped in a cycle of negative thinking and Luke helps break her out of it. He teaches her how to relax and enjoy herself in his company. When work threatens to get in the way of what's developing between them, Tiffany starts to revert back to her old behavior even though, "whatever this feeling in the bottom of my stomach was, I'd never felt it before, and something told me it wasn't the kind of thing that happened twice." Watching her interior battle play out as she confronted her trust issues was such a realistic portrayal on how everyday life intrudes on romance. But the twist of fate at the end makes it all worthwhile.

I was first captured by the cover of this book. Breath takingly beautiful. I enjoyed the love story written by this author. At times the writing was a little rough, but the overall story was awesome. I’m glad I’ve never had a sister like Tiffany, but commend Kammy for all that she put up with. I would definitely have to agree with Luke on his overall feelings for Tiffany. Definitely a quick story, but a lot of fun. Was excited to read book two. See below for my review of book two.

The Fate of a Marlowe Girl is told from the perspective of Tiffany, a twenty-four-year old pushover. That in and of itself had me wondering if I was going to like this book. Tiffany is an accountant from Houston. She’s in Cancun for her sister’s bachelorette party. The whole situation is bad. No, that’s not true. The whole situation is HORRIBLE. Tiffany is Kammy’s maid of honor, thus she’s responsible for the bachelorette party. Not only does Kammy insist that her bachelorette party be held in Cancun, she also insists that Tiffany pay for her and a dozen or so of her friends. I’m talking airfare and hotel. The girls’ mother insisted that Tiffany do this for her sister. Not that Tiffany REALLY has the money to do all of this. Adding to Tiffany’s stress is the fact that the April 15th tax deadline is two weeks away. The worst part is that Kammy is marrying Tiffany’s ex-boyfriend, the one who cheated on her with Kammy. Tiffany wants to give her sister a nice bachelorette party. Kammy, being the childish person that she is, has allowed her friends and herself to let the party get out of hand and disrespect her sister. To say that Kammy is NOT one of my favorite people is an understatement. Kammy is ungrateful and doesn’t even appreciate what her sister is doing for her. The same can also be said for Kammy’s friends. Tiffany decides to flee her overcrowded hotel room and ends up in the hotel bar where she meets Luke, a handsome, charming man. What transpires from this moment is incredible, unbelievable, and a little funny. Luke brings out a different side of Tiffany. The new Tiffany is one you will root for and like, if not love. Luke forces Tiffany to relax and have fun. He also makes her realize that she isn’t responsible for Kammy and that Kammy should be taking care of herself. Oh my gosh! I SO loved this book. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series. Source: Blog Tour Host Reviewed for Read Your Writes Book Reviews
