Book Description

Can She Outwit Fate?

Gemma is on a collision course with heartbreak. At least, according to the fortune-teller her best friend drags her to see. Gemma doesn't believe a word of it, but when other predictions start to come true, she begins to suspect that gorgeous, gray-eyed Nick is the man foretold to break her heart before she can find her soul mate. Too bad she's never met a man she's wanted more, because now she has to get him to dump her before she falls too hard.

Nick has plans of his own. He's ready to settle down with Ms. Right, and everything points to the beautiful Gemma. He's determined to prove to her that he's the perfect boyfriend—even if she does seem to be trying her best to scare him off…

4.0 out of 5 stars Can you outrun Fate? November 3, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Gemma doesn't believe in Fate or Fortune-tellers, but when she is dragged to Madam Hooch she grudgingly goes along with it. Gemma doesn't believe a word of it--I mean, come on! She hasn't even met this dark and handsome man who will break her heart! Who wants heartbreak? But when other predictions start to come true, Gemma is beginning to suspect that gorgeous, grey-eyed Nick is the one foretold to break her heart. So, to jump start the time when she can finally meet her soul mate, Gemma is going to do anything and everything to get this hottie to dump her so she can then meet the man of her dreams. Nick is stupefied by some of Gemma's antics and runs to his married buddies who all explain to him that that is just how women are--and Nick always goes back. He's lived the bachelor lifestyle, never lived with a woman, and is surprised by all that goes into beauty--but because it's Gemma, he doesn't care. He just wants to be with her, crazy nut-case antics and all.

SECOND GUESSING FATE was a fun, light-hearted story. When Gemma meets Nick leaving the Fortune-teller's office, she is immediately suspicious. Yes, he is gorgeous and very interested, but she doesn't like putting herself out there. She was engaged before, was left at the Alter, and is too busy with her own business to bother about dating. But Madam Hooch's words bounce around her head, as well as her girlfriend's, Helen, who is pushing her to break her heart so she can then find her soul mate. So, Gemma takes the plunge.

Gemma was so funny to watch. She would get comfortable in her relationship with Nick and realize she couldn't afford to--her soul mate was out there waiting on her! She needed to fast track the break-up on THIS relationship so she could get to her Happily Ever After.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun flirty & fabulous! October 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I laughed out loud. I smiled tenderly. And, most of all, I finished reading this delightful book relaxed and feeling good after a stressful day.

Fast paced, full of down-to-earth human moments, and yet peppered with steamy romance, this contemporary romance by Claire Robyns delivered exactly what it promised: a fun, flirty and fabulous read.

I was drawn to Ms Robyns writing through her brilliant debut novel, the historical Scottish romance 'Betrayed'. The light-hearted 'Second Guessing Fate' is as far from that emotionally intense historical as it could possibly be, but one is left amazed at Ms Robyns versatility as a writer. 'Second Guessing Fate' may be a happy romp through the love story of the delicious Nick and the cute Gemma, but the characters have both depth and authenticity.

I'd highly recommend this novel to anyone who needs a fun read to wipe away the stress of real life.
