Bryce has liked Paige since they were little but has never had the guts to act on his feelings. Paige is devastated over being dumped by her long-time boyfriend and can’t seem to move on. They’re stuck in a rut, until fate decides to pull them out.

Both Paige and Bryce are talked into seeing a fortune teller at the annual Summer’s End Carnival. Neither of them buys into the mysticism, until the psychic’s predictions start coming true. Now, the most bizarre things are happening and there isn’t a clear explanation. Each of them must figure out if they’re the subject of an elaborate hoax or a bigger plan forged by destiny.

*This book is part one of two. Books should be read sequentially.


My Review: 5 Stars

What a creative tale! I love a story that can take me back in time, deliver a solid plot, and have strong, lifelike characters. Just so everyone knows, I felt like an honorary member of this group of friends and siblings. I wish so much that I could go back and have such a strong bond with my own sister. 

At the end of summer, this group goes to a carnival and most of them visit a fortune teller. The results from that visit had me smiling and swooning, as good friends Bryce and Paige end up in a fake relationship. The magical elements were utterly charming and the chemistry almost melted my Kindle.

The characters rocked the book. The camaraderie, friendly banter, loyalty, and slight mystery gave this story a firm foundation for the flirting and drama and I adored the way everything played out. 

My favorite things were the way the story alternated between Bryce's and Paige's points-of-view, while still heavily involving the supporting cast, and the swoony sweet romance.

This first book is a must read before diving into Kismet and Karma.

Content: mild+ romance (kissing, suggested sex/waiting for it, some light innuendo); mild violence

Kismet & Karma

(Fate & Fortune #2)

By Robin Daniels
YA Contemporary Romance, Duology

ebook, 270 Pages
October 25th 2018

Bryce and Paige belong together, but they’ll never make it happen alone. When inspiration strikes in multiple ways, a friend decides it can’t be a coincidence; it’s a call to action. With a little luck, the help of fate, and the matchmaking plan of the century, Bryce and Paige just might get their happy ending.

You heard Paige and Bryce's version of the story in Fate & Fortune. Now join Eric, Amy, Cody, Kennedy and Genie to see how things really went down.

***This book completes the series. Book one can be read as a standalone, but book two cannot. Fate & Fortune should be read first.***


My Review: 5 Stars

Just when I thought the story of Bryce and Paige was complete, along comes this book to fill in the gaps of the magic and mystery, through their friends and siblings points-of-view. It's a favorite thing of mine to have the chapters alternate characters because I can really get inside their heads and get to know their sides on a personal level.

And guess what? I absolutely loved this book, because honestly, I wasn't quite ready to let this group go, and enjoyed seeing the behind-the-scenes events. The reader is treated to some complicated relationships, hilarious moments, scheming, and more. I wondered at first could possibly make Fate & Fortune better, but knowing the whole picture really did it for me.

This is one creative, highly entertaining, and FUN set and I would definitely recommend it to lovers of YA sweet romance.

About the Author

The most important thing to know about me is that I'm basically a sixteen-year-old trapped in an adult's body. It's why I feel such a great connection to all of my characters and why I love to write romantic comedy. The kid in me just wants to be goofy. Besides being a writer; I'm a wife, mother of five, volleyball enthusiast and home decorating guru. My list of favorites includes: reading, Christmas, pedicures, dessert, steak, Arizona winters and most importantly, Diet Coke.
