Discovering Brandy’s interests in the bedroom makes Crank realize they are perfect for each other. Knowing he can’t let her go, not when she’s his perfect other half, he’ll do whatever is necessary to ensure that they have a chance at their fated love.
I loved Fated Love by April Zyon. This is the eighth story in the Massey, TX series, but it does not need to be read in chronological order. This was the first story I read in the series and I was able to follow the story quite well. In fact I found myself wanting to read the prior stories as soon as I finished. So you can guess what will be next on my reading lists. ;)
But back to Brandy and Crank. I adored both characters. Brandy found herself in a situation and took matters to protect herself. She went to the safety of home. I loved that she saw nothing wrong with accepting that she was ill equipped to deal with her stalker. I loved that Ms. Zyon did not equate her acceptance into a weak female character. Brandy was strong in other ways and Ms. Zyon was quick to point that fact out, subtly. Even as she steered Brandy into the arms of the man that was her perfect sexually match. This leads us to Crank. He was so comfortable within his skin and it showed. He did not feel the need to prove who and what he was to anyone. Brandy threw him for a loop but he quickly accepted that she could be what he needed even as he wasn’t looking. I loved that Ms. Zyon made their relationship so easy. The drama surrounded them but their journey to becoming a couple had very little drama but and lots of heat.
I loved meeting the residents of Massey, TX. I enjoyed the sense of family and community Ms. Zyon showed us with this tale. I loved the ease the flowed between Crank, Brandy and her family. And, I am looking forward to getting to know each resident from the beginning.
