Can’t Fight Fate, Lisa N. Edwards

 Can’t Fight Fate,  Lisa N. Edwards
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre:  Romance, Literature/Fiction (adult.)
I read the amazon sample of this, brief as the whole book is only 1397 kindle locations, and it sounded fun. Sadly for me that was the best part of the book. What I was hoping for was a romance with some kind of psychic element following the reading, what I got was what seemed like one long rambling monologue of Nikki’s thoughts, interspersed occasionally with a little dialogue. Its not a format that works well for me, and added to the fact that the sentences were choppy and disjointed, and I found myself lost at several points in the story this book wasn’t one for me. Nikki seemed to mention characters as if the reader knew them, when it was fist time we’d been introduced, Mr Hollywood doesn’t appear until around halfway through the book and then their interactions are brief, mostly some very odd and random texts. I couldn’t call what they had a relationship, a romance or even a friendship….
Nikki herself was a curious mix of vulnerable and arrogant. She’s overly brash at times, has a bit of a chip about lots of things and the klutz part, something I sympathise with as I’m one, was forced and overdone. As for Mr Hollywood – well, he was a bit of a washout, we didn’t see him enough to judge what he was really like but what we did see he was a lacklustre mummy’s boy.
It ends very strangely, nothing really resolved and I can see Lisa has a second book planned, but I won’t be reading it. as ever this is just my feelings on the story and I can see already its garnered an enthusiastic five star review on amazon so it shows what one person dislikes is perfect for someone else.
Stars: Two, sorry but a fail for me.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
