Twisted Fate – Jessi Elliot

Being kidnapped by the leader of the fae really puts a dent in your senior year.
Aurora Marshall is sharp, witty, and always has a plan. Ready to finish her business degree and graduate, her life is going smoothly—until the night she meets Tristan Westbrook.
Tristan, the overbearing, gorgeous Fae Leader, and an admired businessman in the human world, is all kinds of dangerous. While he finds Aurora intriguing, her refusal to bend to his will keeps them locked in a constant power struggle.
Entering into a deal is the only way to escape Tristan’s clutches, which only plunges Aurora deeper into the fae world. With her future at stake, she is forced to handle his arrogance and extraordinary fae abilities as she fights to stay grounded in her mundane life.
Not to mention her struggle to ignore the growing attraction she knows she shouldn’t feel for the man who kidnapped her.
When people said college would be the most exciting time of her life, Aurora never thought this is what they meant.

I’d like to thank Jessi Elliot and Love Between the Sheets for sending me an e-arc of this book it is very much appreciated. If you follow my twitter you’d have seen that I tweeted some of my most anticipated reads for 2018 and this was top of the list. I had watched Jessi on youtube for a while and had gotten so excited about this story. It sounded amazing and I was so thrilled I was able to get an arc. And boy did this story live up to my expectations.

The plot was really intriguing and I loved every moment of it, I seriously cannot wait for the next book it left on such a cliffhanger that I want to know what happens next. I need the sequel like right now. I didn’t know where it was going and I did not see the twists or turns that were coming and it still loves me shocked thinking about them now.

I loved Aurora and how sassy she was in the first few chapters I was actually laughing out loud in some parts because of her witty comebacks! I loved the banter between Aurora and Tristan although at times I was thinking that it wasn’t even banter. It was a story of enemies to lovers, Aurora and Tristan’s relationship wasn’t insta lovey or anything like that, they both built their friendship and romantic relationship. It didn’t feel rushed at all. She was very strong and loyal to her friends and I loved that was one of her qualities. I also enjoyed how driven she was to achieve what she wanted and she was very smart. I loved her character.

Tristan I thought was kind of funny, I loved seeing how his business worked and that he was very smart. Also that he was willing to take advice from Aurora when she suggested what to do about his problems with the fae. I also loved how he did have the respect of everyone who worked for him. That being said of course he had his issues like changing the mind of Aurora’s accessor so for her placement she’ll be placed with him. Dream walking into Aurora’s dream. It really made me laugh how he was intrigued by her so much especially because he couldn’t wipe her memory when they accidentally kidnapped her.

I really didn’t like Alison who was meant to be Aurora’s best friend, Aurora was so loyal to her and time after time she began to defend her and stick up for her. Even try and change Tristan’s mind on punishment for her. But I just really didn’t like her, she grated on me so much through this novel. I just didn’t like her. I can’t explain why I didn’t. Just got a wrong vibe from her. She was just a shit friend in my opinion.

I loved Skyler and Max, it was especially funny as they really didn’t like Aurora at the beginning and Max did, in fact, try feeding off her. I loved that eventually did begin to like her but they didn’t really change their attitude. There’s a scene I particular love where Skyler takes care of her and they are just like let’s never talk about it again. I loved it.

I loved everything about this novel, I loved the writing and I can’t wait for the sequel and to read more!
