Release Day: Fated Encounter! Review and a Giveaway!

Last month, I reviewed a book called Darkness and Light by J.A. Belfield. If you want to read that review, you can find it here:My Review of Darkness and Light by J.A. Belfield. In short, I loved Darkness and Light, and once I heard that J.A. Belfield had decided to write a novella of a chapter from it in Sean's POV, I was so excited! I was desperate to read it, too, so when the author herself asked me to read it early, and review it...and then offer you all the chance to win a copy, well how could I say no??? Seriously! How?! I couldn't, that's how.

Today, that novella, Fated Encounter, comes out!
And you know's free!
So, no, the giveaway, isn't of the novella, the giveaway is for Darkness and Light! The first book in J.A's Holloway Pack Series. Where you get to meet Jem, Sean, and so many amazing other characters, like Ethan...Sean's brother. ;)

Source: Received an ebook from the author and publisher for an honest review.
Release Date: Already Released. - FREE! :D
Visit its page on the publisher website: Fated Encounter

One glimpse. That scent. There. Right there. Could it be … her?

The female within Sean Holloway’s dreams is real, and he intends to see her face even if it means hiding behind a women’s lingerie rack to do it.

With curiosity burning too hot for him to ignore, Sean turns an ordinary family errand into the chance of a lifetime only to be interrupted time and again.

In this companion piece to Darkness and Light, see Jem the way Sean saw her for the very first time.

Just how close is Sean willing to get before he’ll take fate into his own hands?

Enough to make the impossible come true … maybe.


Bonus! Follow along from Jem’s perspective in Chapter 10 of Darkness and Light

My Review:

As I stated in my review for Darkness and Light, I loved Sean, and I loved Jem, and I loved that as you can imagine, I loved this novella, too. :)

I absolutely loved getting to read something from Sean's POV. :D Fated Encounter was short and sweet...and the only thing I could have wished for was for it to be longer! Of could've been 500 pages long and I still probably wouldn't have gotten enough of Sean. :P haha

I loved how Sean's POV differed from Jem's, and I think that reading Chapter 10 of Darkness and Light simultaneously while reading Fated Encounter would be amazing! I didn't do it myself, but I think the next time I read Darkness and Light, I'm going to have to try it. :D

If you haven't read Darkness and Light yet, I think, you'll still be fine reading Fated Encounter first. It doesn't really give anything away, other than giving the name Sean a character to place it to, and it definitely wouldn't hurt to get to meet him early. ;) haha

I'd like to say thanks to J.A. Belfield, and J. Taylor Publishing for sending me an early copy of Fated Encounter, so that I could share my thoughts on it with you all. So, thank you. :)
