When the one you want …

Daisy doesn’t believe love is ever-lasting, so it’s ironic as hell that she parlayed a business degree into a wedding planning business. More ironic still is her latest job bringing her back into contact with the man who’d taught her that love can’t last.

Is the one you can’t have…

To say Diego has been taught the hard way to bury emotions is an understatement. But when he’s called home to help the brother he hasn’t seen or spoken to in years, that’s one thing. It’s another entirely to also come face to face with the first woman he ever loved. First and only…

Can love conquer all?

Daisy’s learned to depend only on herself, and Diego is and always has been an island of one. And yet when they’re together, even when they’re bickering, still wary and haunted by memories of what was … it’s magic. The question is, how to find their way back to each other…?

Twist of fate is a second chance romance, miscommunication trope with a gay wedding! What more could you want?

Diego and Daisy were in love once. Then Diego’s dad got sick, his brother took off leaving him to deal with it, and Daisy went to college. Diego spent 2 years hating his brother and Daisy for abandoning him. Rocco, Diego brother, returned home after 2 years and Diego promptly took off, not speaking to his brother for 10 years.

I understood Diego’s hatred of his brother for abandoning him. Rocco was selfish. However, the issue between him and Daisy was not as clear cut. I think both of them had some miscommunication, but I do hold Diego more responsible. However, they were both young and under a great deal of stress. Rocco and Tyler’s attempts to force them back together are cute though and I appreciated that.

Overall, Twist of Fate is a fun, quick read that has delightfully fun supporting characters in Rocco and Diego, and a good second chance love story for Diego and Daisy! You don’t have to have read the other Heartbreaker Bay books; however, I do recommend them!

Jill lives with her family in a small town in the Sierras full of quirky characters (Any resemblance to the quirky characters in her books is mostly coincidental).

Most of her books come from a combination of hard work, cookies, and hot guy pics, and not necessarily in that order.

Jill often travels to reader weekends & conventions where she LOVES getting to meet and hang-out with readers. The only problem being she tends to get lost in her hotels. So if you ever see NYTimes Bestselling author Jill Shalvis roaming the halls, someone please return her immediately.

    I would read this solely because Shalvis wrote it, but even more because I love a second chance romance. Sometimes novellas leave me wanting, but I am really enjoying this series, and like that Shalvis is letting us get to know more of the secondary characters.
