Twist of Fate was a great read! I would give it a solid 4 stars. This is a book about a one night stand that will change the lives of both the characters in a blink of an eye. It does have an HEA which I am forever thankful for because we all know how much I love cliffys :). It is told in dual POV's and is a standalone novel.

When there flight gets delayed they find themselves going to a hotel and having a crazy one-night-stand. They part not knowing each others last names so no chance of them ever meeting again.... but of course with a Twist Of Fate there lives will collide 3 years later when Silas's girlfriend goes to a book signing that he so happens to tag along with and to his surprise the author is Lilly.

This book will warm your heart in so many ways , and then you will get quite a few twists that will sadden your heart as well. This is the first book I have read by this author but I look forward to much more and hopefully soon! Thanks for a great read Jaime Whitley!
Here are some lines from the book that I found note worthy:
"I'm ok with whatever you're okay with. This doesn't have to happen if you don't want it to. No pressure. Like I said, I will happily take the couch. I'm hoping you don't make me take the couch though Lilly, because there is something about you that makes me want to know all of you. I want to explore every inch of your body and see what makes you quiver."
I felt such a deep connection with him, one I never felt before with anyone. Our bodies moved in perfect sync together, like we've done this everyday for the last five years. The way my body ignited with every single touch of his made it feel like our souls were connecting. I want to lean over and give him a proper wakening after last night, but I refrain, reminding myself that even though I had the best sex of my life last night, we agreed on a one-night-stand.
