Late for Fate by Lori M Jones & GIVEAWAY

D.C. paralegal Jezebel Stone's tardiness often gets her in trouble, but this time it leads to meeting her dream man. Her choice of metro seats places her on track for finding love again. But when their ride ends in a fiery crash, their separation sends her on a mission of reuniting with him and finishing their fateful trip.

But instead, it entangles Jezebel in the twisted lives of those determined to destroy each other. This prickly path also holds the potential of leading Jezebel to an unlikely place of joy. Finding joy seems impossible when life is literally exploding all around her.

LATE FOR FATE won Best First Chapter from WRITERS' TYPE

 My Thoughts…

 A paralegal on a train that crashes falls for the man sitting next to her.     The man next to her has ulterior motives to starting a relationship with her.     Sounds like a twisted story right?     Late for Fate is exactly that.    The twists, the turns, and the story keeps going, taking turns that the reader can never see coming.      Just when I thought I knew what was going to happen or how someone was going to react Lori M. Jones throws a curve ball and sends the book in a different direction.

Jezebel is hurting.   The crash, the lack of a man, and her job are all weighing on her.     Then she meets Kirk on the train and her life looks up.   I enjoyed getting to know Jezzie.    I liked her from the very first page and liked her more and more as the story went on.    Her reactions to the events in her life were real.    She knew that her heart and her brain were not on the same wave length where Kirk was concerned yet as she struggled with what to do she became more and more real to me.  

My favorite character is Nicole.   Kirk’s crazy, yes insane crazy, wife had me cringing, giggling, and worrying through the entire story.    She was a bomb waiting to explode.   Her antics while trying to save herself and get her way showed the reader who the real Nicole was.   My hope was that someone would stop her or expose her before she caused any damage to anyone else. 

The writing style of alternating points of view really added to the story.   It was interesting to hear the thoughts, the whys, and the what nexts of different characters.     I liked that I could see into the minds of other characters and hear the story from characters other than Jezebel.    The story moved at a fast pace with romance, mystery, suspense, and some humor.   

The adventures of this book are marvelous.    I recommend checking it out.

"Jones is a gifted author with a talent for sharp, fast-paced prose that keeps the pages turning. Late for Fate moves at a thrilling pace. It's studded with sharp-edged, witty dialogue and quirky characters that stuck with me long after reading. Jones' knack for creating stories that feel familiar but are unique in voice and plot make every read (including Late for Fate!) a great one.
 ~Kathleen Shoop, best-selling author of the Letter Series and After the Fog
