Review: Embracing Fate (A Series of Fates #2) by C.C. Dado

A Series of Fates: Book Two

Sometimes you just have to embrace your fate.

Seth has a secret: he has a crush on the human next door. His brilliant plan to meet Jack, the man of his dreams who happens to be an animal trainer? Take wolf form and ask his best friend, Max, to take him next door for training. Seth is the only one surprised when things go horribly awry.

Still, can this shy wolf and a human meet their fate as mates?

The blurb to this book is what made me want to read the series. A shifter who asks his best friend to pretend he’s his DOG so that he can get close to the hot dog trainer who lives next door? Come on! If that doesn’t scream at you that you will have good time I don’t think we can be friends. Kidding. I am not friends with people anyway because I’m a socially awkward introvert but you get it, right?

This was everything I hoped it would be and more. I loved being in Seth’s head as he longs for a mate and bond like his best friend Max with their Alpha Christian. Seth just needs to find his mate and it doesn’t take long when human Jack applies to move to Easter Valley and it’s accepted. Goodness but this was adorable. Have I mentioned that five times already?

This series is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. Each story is short but gives you just enough information that you fall into the story and don’t want to stop reading. Would I have liked a bit more of it? Sure but that’s just me being greedy wanting to share every minute with Jack and Seth from their first meeting, to picnics, movie nights and everything that comes with them being mates. But I liked what I got and can’t complain.

Seth could feel the pull between them. It was like having a secret that you only knew part of. He wondered what it felt like for Jack. If he could even feel the pull at all.

Seth. You shy boy with two colored eyes and bangs that fall in your face. Your plan to have your BFF present you to your mate as a dog/wolf who needs training is right up there with the hijinks of Lucy and Ethel. You and Max crack me up but I loved seeing your wolf with Jack. It’s a favorite thing of mine when a shifter is with a human, that bond between man and animal and you and Jack are perfect together. The leash fits you in both forms and I am so glad that the elders explained your destiny and Jack bonded with both you and your wolf – regardless of the ridiculous names Max gave you – because you and your mate made my day.

Jack! I loved you with you long wavy hair and your love for animals. You didn’t know why you felt the urge to apply to live in a town, jump through all the hoops entailed and why it felt like you finally belonged once you got there. You didn’t know shifters existed or that you would become part of a pact, you just knew that the boy next door was beautiful, shy and unforgettable. You also fell hard for him as a wolf so that made me fall hard for you.

The story has many moments of comedy throughout it but that’s expected when Max is around. You can’t fault the boy for his natural talent to make everyone laugh while they simultaneously want to pull their hair out. Max is something special and when Seth tells a lie to get to see Christian one day, the shenanigans begin because Christian’s Beta starts to treat Max like something to be coveted. I won’t tell you what that is because it’s pretty funny and sweet as honey but I will say it will totally prepare you to fall for Zeus and crave to read his book.

Yup. This was a good one. Just the right amount of everything to make this ginger happy.
