Book Description

Do you need to love someone to be happy? Does happiness mean a fairy tale ending?

Caden Riley challenged me from the first moment I met him. It was more than his good looks or his fame as a photographer that drew me to him. He offered me things that I never knew I wanted, and didn’t demand more than I was willing to give.

Was I happy? I’m not sure. Happiness is an emotion I’m unfamiliar with. But I finally knew what it felt like to experience real passion. To let go of all my inhibitions and surrender to my desires. It was enough for me, because it was more than I ever expected.

Until Caden tempted me with possibilities. The possibility of a future; the possibility of a life I never imagined; the possibility of heartbreak and never hearing the words "I love you."

Love is a funny thing. It can make you feel like the world is yours to conquer. It can also bring you to your knees. I’m not sure which is my fate.

5.0 out of 5 stars All that a romance novel should be December 13, 2012
By Jean
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When it comes to romance novels, I have certain pet peeves. Plot devices or characterizations that are guaranteed to make me grit my teeth, roll my eyes, or yawn. Sometimes simultaneously. But, this book...this book had none of those things. If I had to explain to someone what my ideal romance novel would be like, this would be the book I would use as a shining example.

A brief synopsis: Lauren does a favor for a friend by accepting a 3-month temporary position working as the personal assistant to renowned photographer, Caden. While they are instantly attracted to each other, Lauren and Caden both have emotionally scarred pasts that lead them to be against the idea of love - and neither is interested in anything other than a temporary, physical relationship.

Okay. So far, pretty typical. And, yes, it's still a romance novel and predictable in that we pretty much know how it's going to end. But it's the getting there part in this book that's interesting.

When I first started this book, I was afraid I was going to strongly dislike Lauren. I thought she was going to be one of those obnoxiously annoying "tough" heroines. Don't get me wrong - Lauren is strong and she is no one's doormat. But she's not tough in an in-your-face kind of way. She ended up surprising me by being a very likeable, realistic character.

There was no "rush to love" in this book. (Oh, how I hate the insta-love!) There is a very slow building of their relationship from co-workers to lovers to friends and back again. It flows up and down and back and forth. It was emotional and at one point I started getting nervous thinking the story was going to dissolve into the dreaded angst. But it stopped short of that, thank God.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved loved loved this book!!! December 6, 2012
By Tericka
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There was no doubt I would love this book because I immediately fell in love with Love Left Behind although the books had a different story line. I usually read the first few chapters before deciding if I would order a book but there was no need because of the faith I have in S.H. Kolee. she did not let me down.

I love Lauren, and I love Caden. This book is about overcoming your past and not letting it define who you are in the present. That is all I will say about this book because I do not want to ruin anything.

Do yourself a favor and order it. If you love contemporary romance, this book is for you. It was so realistic.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful, sexy, and poignant read December 9, 2012
By Milasy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love Fated. I wasn't expecting the journey that the author took me on, after reading her comptemporary romance debut Love Left Behind, but I enjoyed every minute of it. This book had it all for me - well-written, sexy, poignant, and heartbreaking.

Caden. Wow. He is a well-known controversial photographer - rumored to have actively participated in bringing his models to climax before capturing this elusive moment in his pictures. Caden is so sexy - he has a quiet intensity and sweetness that comes across with every look, every word, and every touch. You're going to lust over/ love him. Yes he's broken and he believes he is not built to have a healthy loving relationship. Yes he messes up several times in his relationship with Lauren but you understand why, you feel for him, you cry for him, and you root for him to overcome his fears and to finally find happiness in life. "I know that he can seem insensitive sometimes, cold even, but it's usually the softest heart that have the hardest shells."

Lauren comes into Caden's life as his temporary personal assistant while her friend Macie goes away on a 3 month tour with her photographer boyfriend. Lauren has her own hang ups regarding love. "Falling in love wasn't an option. I wasn't sure I was capable of that human frailty." She tries her hardest to not be affected by Caden. She clings onto her desperate need for control as long as she can, but eventually loses this battle. They have a desperate, needy, and raw physical connection - the trembling, cannot-wait-another-minute attraction (that we love to read and experience in a book). All I gotta say is pasta salad - yes, pasta salad. I have a new appreciation for pasta salad (wink).

You will be moved by Caden and Lauren's journey - their vulnerability, their damaged souls, their tender and loving moments, and their hope to tempt fate and find love with each other. Get this book and read it. You won't regret it.
