The story is told from the heroine's own perspective. It takes place in the course of a weekend but is fairly long due to Anabel's comments, thoughts, and opinions on anything and everything as well as her constant flashbacks that help us flesh out the heroine's backstory and give us insight into the characters. Don't get me wrong; Anabel's mind is a well of practical knowledge and crazy ideas, so there is not a dull moment in the whole book.
I loved Anabel's character and her adventures so much that by the third chapter I knew that I would want to buy all the books in the series. However, when I finished the book, I was more frustrated than satisfied. It ends so abruptly and leaves so many loose ends untied and important questions unanswered, that I have no choice now but to buy the next book. I don't have anything against series of books, especially if I like the characters. But I want each book in a series to be a stand-alone piece as well, so I can choose which and how many books to buy. Unfortunately, as I said earlier, there is no choice here. For that reason, I am only giving A Date with Fate a three-star rating. I am truly sorry to do so; had it had a different ending (any ending at all, for that matter), it would have been a five-star read for me.
Update (09/15/2013): At the time I am writing this, four out of the five one- and two-star reviews are written by people who haven't actually read the whole book: two found it boring and gave up at the very beginning, and the other two couldn't get over the kinky first chapter. While I believe that everybody is entitled to his or her own opinion, I also truly believe that one cannot review--and condemn--a book they haven't finished. It's not fair for potential readers, and it's certainly not fair for the author. As for the first chapter, tastes differ, and what some people consider fun, healthy, and acceptable, others may find dirty and disturbing. Personally, I loved the first chapter and got hooked by it--it was a powerful introduction of the two main characters and an exciting and spicy glimpse into Anabel and Luke's world. If you are not sure whether the opening chapter will be within your comfort zone, may I suggest that you check out a sample first. That way you can see for yourself if you get turned on or off by it. A Date with Fate is not a stand-alone piece and shouldn't be read as such; it is followed by Courted by Karma and then by In Love by Design. These books are a continuing story that is sexy, captivating, and very entertaining.
Dear Ms. Ellen,
PLease understand that I am in awe of your talent and find your work immensely entertaining, but have a care for your audience, please! This whole "new" craze of taking one really good story and dragging it out over several books is not fair to the your readers (clearly I am NOT a fan!), and, when it's done with no warning and leaves us hanging, it's a slap in the face to those who invest time, and/or money, in your books!! Please fix this ASAP by, at the very least, finishing Anabel's story for free; and then continuing with the stories of the other characters in subsequent books!! But let each book be a stand alone! THEN you will develop a loyal following for your work. As it stands now, I - and probably many others - will shy away from your writing because I cannot trust you to deliver a satisfying book! I'll be checking periodically to see if you finish Anabel's tale, but I will NOT be investing in any future stories until that is done! I really do hope you'll take this as constructive criticism from an avid reader!
