Dylan Locke knows that pining over the young ingenue Audrey Lind is pointless. He can’t offer her what she wants. He definitely can’t give her what she needs. Thank goodness she’s half a world away, and he doesn’t have to deal with his attraction head on.

But fate has other plans for him, and when Audrey once again lands in his path, it’s only too easy to fall back into their easy rhythm. And then their easy banter. And of course, each other’s arms.

He tells himself nothing has changed. She still wants forever, and he still thinks tomorrow is long enough. But watching her search isn’t as easy as he thought it would be, and now Dylan must figure out if he’s really the love Scrooge he professes to be or if he’s been Fate’s willing victim all along. 

ARC received for an honest review

You need to have read Sweet Liar before diving into Sweet Fate.

Dylan and Audrey's story is all about fate, kismet, destiny - whatever you like to call it.

It took me a minute to remember how the first book ended, however once I remembered where I was at, it was a goer!

I didn't think I could like a book more than I did Sweet Liar, however Sweet Fate took things to a whole new level.

I was hooked on the story, just as Audrey and Dylan were hooked on each other.  I couldn't put this book down once I had started it.

It didn't exactly go the route I thought it would go, and for that I am grateful. I like to be surprised by my stories.

Dylan and Audrey are just perfect for each other, and I wanted, no I needed them to make their HEA, no matter what trials and tribulations that had to endure.

Sweet Fate was the perfect end to our lovelies story, now I can't wait to see what Ms Paige brings us next.


Please read the first books in this series/duets first if you haven't yet! They all basically happen at the same time!

A little bit of time has gone by since Dylan and Audrey's short time in New York in book #1. He's been in London for a few months. She finished college. Then they met again for a minute at Donovan's wedding and then another while goes by after that until ....
Dylan suddenly finds Audrey in London.

Well, that was adorable and London-y and sweet and sexy and a little heartbreaking!

I still don't like huge age-gap romances. Eight years is kinda my limit. The Dylan-Audrey age gap is 19 years! That's really a lot.
But I really adore Dylan and he so deserves to find a forever love.
And Audrey is just the person for the job!
So cute those two. They both don't really want to start something. Dylan because he thinks he's way too old and he doesn't do love anymore and Audrey because she thinks Dylan doesn't want her. But of course they both want each other like crazy. Might take them a while to get to that happy end - but the reader enjoys every moment of that journey!
Great romance! I even shed some tears!!

I wouldn't have minded if the first book would've been added to the beginning of this one - like a part 1 and part 2 thingy maybe. I don't like two books if one is enough.
And I could've done without the creepy dirty talk. But I still loved the story!

SWEET FATE was a sexy and adorable age-gap romance! Hurry to your nearest amazon for your own Dylan - this one is MINE!


It was a completely different experience kissing Audrey, after I’d accepted the gravity of the feelings I had for her.
I knew the kiss meant nothing, that it would lead nowhere, but it felt like being bathed in radiant light.
Like I was an imprisoned man in a dark prison cell who, for one brief moment, was allowed to step outside into the sunlight. I was completely present for it. Each brush of her lips, each touch of her tongue—I memorized it all, imprinted every second into my brain so that I’d have it forever. I might still have worn shackles with no hope of freedom, but this moment mattered. It was real and divine, and I would cherish every last second of the stolen sunshine until my dying day.
I would’ve been content with only kissing, with just the shallow lifts and falls of her chest and frantic hands trying to caress and cling.
But Audrey had other ideas in mind, demonstrated by the quick work of her hands at my waist, unbuckling my belt, undoing my trousers, the slip of her hand inside the opening to stroke the outline of my very prominent erection.
“This,” she said between kisses. She pulled at the elastic waistband of my boxers and dipped her hand in to touch me directly.
I hissed at the feel of her soft hand against my hot skin.
“I want this,” she begged. “Can I have this?”

USA Today and New York Times Bestselling Author Laurelin Paige is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Game of Thrones or The Walking Dead, or dreaming of Adam Levine & Michael Fassbender. She is represented by Rebecca Friedman.
