This is one book I could not put down for a debut novel it was a wonderful read. This is one story that will reach in and touch your heart as you feel the pain of Izzy and all she goes through as she is on the run for her life. When she stops and makes a new life for herself one little girl takes her breath away. As she gets to know the little girls daddy she finds she might be in BIG TROUBLE. Who can resist bad ass bikers who can sweet talk with the best of them? He turns her life upside down as he does everything in his power to keep her safe…There is evil around in more than one way…

Heidi gives you a compelling story of pain, sorrow, more than one person should have to deal with from a mad man who is beyond control issues. As she tries to out run her past from the devil himself she finds a new place with a wonderful man who is controlling in a different way, a loving man who knows how to love and protect those he calls his own.

I loved the scene where she and Braxton meet I could picture it as I laughed. There is some serious chemistry going on between these two. They heat up the night with passion as they pull together and fight the evil around them. Each has an ex that will not be happy to find these two together. I do have to say Tiffany wasn’t my favorite person it would have been a pleasure to have seen her get what she deserved. Sometimes no matter what you do some people just do not get the hint and never go away.

Izzy is a very strong person she just doesn’t know it things will happen to make her understand just how strong she is. When one is abused and controlled it is hard to believe in yourself to believe you are worth something. When her ex takes everything from her and leaves her broke she makes one last stand as runs for her life.

New neighbors attract in Heidi Lis' DEFYING FATE; a passionately romantic story that tests the virtues of love.

Hidden pasts and vengeful ex's haunt Izzy Parker & Braxton Ryles. After relocating cross-country to escape her past, Izzy finds new love in her new neighbor Braxton, a biker with an adorable daughter. Their passion is hot; their love-making intense; and it needs to be because the ghosts of the past will not abide. All that can be done to pry them apart is thrown at them, and as things escalate, we see how love is often tested in the real world.

DEFYING FATE is an irresistible account of modern-day love. The well-crafted characters will make you love and hate. The realism of the story-line is something very refreshing. You don't see it that often nowadays in the many romantic novels saturating the market. This story is entirely believable. It could happen in any small American town. The love connection is so powerfully described it brought my heart right into the pages.

Fate is what you make it. Author Heidi Lis shows us this to be true in this moving tale of life, love, and perseverance.

The story was very enjoyable. Here you have a broken Izzy running away from her past, her abusive significant other. She chose to move to a small town in Washington to start her life fresh and new. The honesty and independence of Izzy is refreshing and draws that connection to the reader. You do not have a broken character here. Izzy is strong, yes she has been hurt, yes she has personal demons, but those don’t break her.
Here in this story you have that instant love connection between characters. Braxton is instantly attracted and fascinated by Izzy. She is the new woman in town who offers a caring shoulder to his young daughter. It is the love/hate relationship with instant love connections that can draw you into a story or turn you away. Can it happen? Yes it can, does this connection work in the story between Izzy and Braxton, yes.
The connection between Izzy and Braxton is hott. The sex is steamy and well done. Your Princess Parts should tingle when the main characters get hot and heavy.
The drama within this story really makes the reader want to hate the bad guy. The lets laugh with the main character and hate the person as much as the Heroine/Hero does too really plays on the reader throughout the book. Yes, I laughed. Yes, I yelled at the bad guy. Did that make me enjoy the story more? Yes.
As Defying Fate is Heidi Lis’ first story four stars is wonderful. This review is written solely on the content of the story. The missing star is for editing errors that can easily be corrected. The story itself was wonderful and worth the read. If you stick to reading this great story a reader can devour the book within a day. This book is a great read and take the time to enjoy the story as much as I did.

OMG!!! What can I say. Author Heidi Lis hits it out of the park with her debut novel. Izzy goes through a roller coaster of emotions & heart ache before she finds happiness. Once she escapes Dominic, her husband, with the help of Kara her best friend and Dominic sister, she thinks she's in the all clear to be happy and start a new life. Izzy is smitten with the little girl from down the street... And her biker her daddy. They start out doing the dance of flirting and sarcastic quips. He hires her as an officer manager of his garage. It's going along great until the proverbial other shoe drops, and Tiffany, Braxton's baby mama, comes rolling into town. The three of them have their ups and downs and twists and turns.

When Dominic finally finds Izzy, no thanks to Tiffany, he then abductors her, cuts her and makes her life a living hell all over again. But finally she gets her happy ending when Kara kills her brother.

The only downside to this book was it editing and even that didn't detract from the storyline. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes out of the box hot biker drama.
