Resisting Fate By (Predetermined #1) : Heather Van Fleet 5 Stars *****
Seventeen-year-old Emmy O’Connell is the epitome of a hot mess.
Her boyfriend’s been shipped out of town to some boarding school four states away. Her step douche is constantly drunk and badgering her. And then there’s her good-ole-mom… The lady is nothing more than a miserable shell of a woman. She’s turned off all of her feelings and her ability to be a good mother as well, leaving poor Emmy and her four year old brother Jamie to suffer. Life couldn’t get much worse, right?
Enter the elusive, cocky, and oh-so-broody Jack Hartman…
The jerk cousin of her boyfriend becomes Emmy’s worst nightmare…times ten. He’s cruel. He’s insensitive. But he also has this strange little ability over her – he makes her weak in the knees with the single touch of his hand. But no matter how miserable or amazing Jack makes her feel, Emmy can’t seem to deny him, especially when he takes on the role of her protector –her pseudo-knight in a black leather coat. A knight who also just so happens to ride in on his black Harley, instead of a white horse…
And to make a bad situation worse…
Werewolves and teens shouldn’t mix! But what can Emmy do when she finds herself thrown head first into the center of it all? Can she handle the supernatural mess her life rapidly becomes or will she fight against the inevitable fate her heart desires?
Emmy's life is pretty crappy with her alcoholic abusive stepfather and the only reason she even deals with him is because of her little brother, her boyfriend leaves her for boarding school with out a word of why he left and then his annoying cousin Jack comes back in the picture and seems bent on making her life even more miserable than it already was, but what Emmy doesn't know is that nothing is what it seems and nothing will ever be the same again.
After reading Resisting Fate I am a big fan. I fell absolutely head over heels in love with this book and its characters. The mix of witches and werewolves brings something new to the table which is not done that often and honestly I love the mix. Heather Van Fleet is a wonderful story teller with an amazing imagination. I cant wait to read the second in the series. Emmy has a great story line that will pull you deeper and deeper in to Resisting Fate that will keep you wanting for more. If you want a book that has it all Resisting Fate has it romance, teen angst, shifters, fate, mystery, and twists and turns that you will not expect. Pick up your copy today you will not regret it.
