Product Description

Product Description

We all have choices in life… paths to take… roads to follow….
It’s on those journeys that fate finds us and takes us where we need to be… Without a second glance we can be taken away from things we know… "people we love" and given a new life...
One that can change us… save us…
What would you do if fate dropped you at a crossroads? Would you go back? Or would you run like hell the other way?

*Author's Note: This book is told from a different point of view and is said to be more like a prequel to Adjournment. This book will also answer a lot of questions you were left with from Adjournment. Sidney and Simon's story continues in Sacrifice and End Game.

Favorite Quotes:

“I’ve never heard a man speak that way to a woman. Well, not to one like her. I thought men flocked to women like her, falling at their feet in hopes of getting a peek up the whore’s skirt.”

“This isn’t a car, this is scrap metal held together with wire and chewing gum.”

“Everyone has a story to tell, they just need to find the right person to tell it to.”

“Because when I looked at you, I saw my entire world and it was as though someone turned on a light switch. I just wanted to be the one to turn yours on.”

“I have loved you since I tricked you into letting me ahead of you in line, and I will love you until I can trick you into letting me die first, because I don’t want to live a second without you.”

“Morgan, my love. When you marry me it will because you asked me… or because you were medicated,”

My Review:

This is one of those special and happy occasions when the sequel outshines the debut. I am thrilled to report that Book 2 Hanging Pawns, is a vast improvement in the readability and quality of Ms. Vallis’s writing. The characters are far more likable, witty, and interesting as we are not seeing them through Sidney’s untrusting filter, but through Mea’s. I adore Mea and Josh as a couple, and also relished the dynamic between the other two couples. The mystery and intrigue continues to deepen Hanging Pawns with more clues and secrets being exposed. I couldn’t put this book down and enjoyed the clever dialog, bickering, and humorous banter, as well as all the twists and intersecting and overlapping of life spaces, and look forward to unraveling more surprises in the 2 remaining hefty tomes.

Arc received from author in exchange for an honest review.

I am adoring this Fate series by Emersyn Vallis, this another great story that has a lot to do with book 1, Adjournment, but thus is Mea Andrews and Josh Anderson's story.

We were given a glimpse of them towards the end of Adjournment, but this tells the how thry met story.

Mea has run awsy from her evil overbearing mother to attend college, while putting in her oapers she meets Josh Anderson, he is gorgeous, hot and under the glaze of every female at university. Mea doesn't want anything to do with Josh, he us just another one of the beautiful people that tend to be mean, just like the girls behind her at registration.

Under the watchful eye of Josh, Mea is quickly taken by his friendship with no strings, and his holy hotness doesn't do bad things either.... Soon enough she is out if the dorms and living next to Josh and the McAlister triplets Simon, Chase and Dean and in the same house as the Chandler twins, Morgan and Molly. The girls take to Mea straight away and soon she becomes family enjoying Christmas with their family.

Not understanding the carry on and the Chandler family banter she leans on Josh more and more.... But when Mrs Chandler finds out Mea is not who she says she is will she still be welcome and will Josh still want her?

I really enjoyed Hanging Pawns more than Adjournment I think, even though it was a quick read it gave some more details into the messed up life that Sydney Chandler and what Josh and Mea's roles are.

Very much looking forward to book 3 in what is becoming a great series.

Hanging Pawns by Emersyn Vallis is the second book in the Fate series and it is from an entirely different point of view to Adjournment. Its focus is on new characters, Mea and Josh who happens to be a friend of the the McAllister triplets and the Chandler twins who live next door whilst they are in college in California. Mea has left her miserable family life behind, (she has the mother from hell) to make a fresh start and meets Josh while queuing to enrol. She's missed out on a dorm room and needs somewhere to live; it just so happens that there is space with Molly and Morgan Chandler, so problem solved.
The tone of Hanging Pawns is more positive than the the first book despite the mystery surrounding Mea and the time she spends with Josh is pure romance. Josh is head-over-heels in love with Mea - “I have loved you since I tricked you into letting me ahead of you in line, and I will love you until I can trick you into letting me die first, because I don’t want to live a second without you.”
Who could resist such a declaration! They totally work as a couple and after the near constant angst of Adjournment, this book is a breath of fresh air. It is also a much shorter volume and that seems just right. There is an authors note on Amazon, that says: "This book is said to be more like a prequel to Adjournment. This book will also answer a lot of questions you were left with from Adjournment". I cannot agree because for me, Adjournment did exact;y what a first volume should do; it introduced characters, set the scene for the series and gave the reader much to think about before diving into the remaining books.
