When Fate Takes Hold
Reviewed in the United States on October 20, 2020
A sweet, yet emotional romance about love after loss and a second chance at a Happily Ever After. I shed a few tears, but was left with a really big smile after this poignant romance. This author duo never fails to deliver a touching story with just the right amount of sexy. This single dad romance will make you believe in the power of fate.
Sadie works at a newspaper and during the Christmas holiday she has a feature dedicated to Christmas Wishes. She never expected a letter from ten year old Birdie to change her life. Birdie wants a few little things and a special friend for her dad as her Christmas wish. Sadie immediately feels a connection with the little girl and sends her some gifts to fulfill part of her wish.
It was supposed to be a one time thing, but Birdie continues with her letters and Sadie is compelled to respond. The whole thing quickly snowballs into more than she bargained for. Sadie gets herself into a predicament when she decides to walk by Birdie's home and Birdie's dad Sebastian mistakes her for the dog trainer. And so their love story begins, so much humor and a whole lot of emotion.
Sebastian has been a single dad for four years. After losing his wife, he concentrated on raising his young daughter and working to establish his new restaurant. He has no interest in a relationship. He takes care of his needs when necessary, but it's a no strings arrangement. He never saw Sadie coming, however he can't seem to ignore her once he realizes how bonded his daughter is to her. It doesn't take long for Sadie to become an essential part of both of their lives, even if the start was unconventional.
This single dad romance has all the feels. A sweet little girl, a sexy dad who would do anything to make his daughter happy and a kind hearted woman who can't resist fulfilling a little girl's wish, was the perfect recipe for this special romance that leaves its mark. If you weren't a believer in fate before, you will be after reading this story. Sadie, Birdie and Sebastian were meant to be a family and it all fell into place. It was a little messy, a whole lot funny and a wee bit crazy, but in the end...it all worked out just as it was meant to.
