September 20th 2018

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.

Kismet & Karma
(Fate & Fortune #2)

ebook, 184 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.***

As most know, I don’t normally read Young Adult.  I love the genre but I’m very, very picky.  Peeps, I have found a new author to stalk when it comes to YA.  Her writing is crisp, updated, funny, snarky, real, at times swoon-worthy but above all, relatable.  I instantly fell in love with Bryce and Paige.  If this series isn’t the typical friends to lovers for YA, I don’t know what is.  And to top it off, it is set in a small town.  Ms. Daniels nails the setting, the school, and the emotions that most teenagers deal with now.  However, she does write a clean book.  Kisses and typical teenage innuendo abound but her characters aren’t self-absorbed party animals that a lot of YA authors write about.  Does that behavior happen?  You bet but Ms. Daniels writes her characters that while not perfect, also know how to behave.

Bryce is a twin and I loved that about him.  My son’s best friend is a twin and he is very different than his brother.  Again, Ms. Daniels gave them both different personalities and shows the brotherly bound that they will have forever.  Paige and Eric, her brother are great, too.  Even though Eric is older, he just wants her to be happy and there is one scene in the book that broke my heart because my brother and I had the same issues.

Again, Ms. Daniels just gets it.  The other characters in the books Genie, Cody (Bryce’s twin), Eric, Amy, and Kennedy are brilliantly written.  In the second book, I felt really bad for Kennedy and my heart broke a bit but her ending was perfect.  And yes, you have to read the first book before the other.  I normally don’t like books like that but once I started reading it, I fell in love even more with all the characters.  Genie was a hoot.  Eric and Amy were hilarious, Cody is a dog (but in a good way) and Kennedy just stole my heart.

Do yourself a favor and pick these two books up.  Ms. Daniels has a written a very humorous, swoon-worthy, relatable YA romance that will leave you wanting more.

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.
