And you thought Emmy’s life was a hot mess before…

Jack’s gone off to Arizona with his brother, but for how long? Emmy doesn’t have a clue. In his place, though, is Zachary. The whiny, miserable, alpha wolf–boy who is more than ready to take on the duty of her mate/boyfriend — if she’d let him, that is. But the last thing Emmy wants is to deal with a boy who believes that the world should fall solely at his feet whenever he demands it.

But hey, at least her step–douche is gone, and her life is back to an almost normal sense, right?

Wrong again, Emmy’s life will never again be normal…

With her Uncle Prick in town and her best friend acting as secretive as ever, Emmy finds new challenges to overcome — challenges that no seventeen–year–old girl should ever have to deal with. For one thing, what is up with her dream–liaison status anyway? What does it mean, really? And why does her little brother have to go through it too? And then there’s her mom. The lady is acting a tad bit odd, to put it nicely. After all these years, she finally wants to step up and be a parental figure? Heck no! Emmy’s definitely not copacetic with that idea.

But with the bad, there’s got to be some good out there for her somewhere, right?

Add in the wolves, witches, drama, and lots of kisses and you get Emmy the Extraordinaire, the girl with strawberry–colored hair, and a chip on her shoulder. She’s finally on her way to finding out what her life and her future both have in store for her, even if the road to getting there is nowhere near as easy as she hoped it would be. But Emmy is tough, and more than ready to take on life with her bare hands.

It’s just too bad she’s madly, desperately, insanely in love with a boy who insists on making her life both a miserable hell and utter perfection at the same time.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pressure, fire, wetness, tongues — single words were all I could think as our mouths battled. God, I’d never been kissed like this before. Ever, and if we stopped, I’d die a happy woman from his lips touching mine alone. He tugged his hand into the back of my hair, pulling my chin upwards, yanking me towards him. I clawed at his shirt, ready to rip it from his massive body. I pulled at his jacket first, lowering it over his shoulders until it fell to the floor. The buttons jingled against the tile, scattering over our feet. Damn, if he didn’t care about his signature black coat falling apart, then I had to wonder what else I could get away with.

By Cindy:

Seizing Fate picks up where Resisting Fate left off. Zachary is still being a major douche. He still believes he and Emmy belong together. Kelsey is acting more strange then usual. Her mom has made a complete one-eighty on her parenting skills. And Jack, Jack is gone.

Emmy I LOVE this girl. She has shown more of her spunk and personality in Seizing Fate. This girl is finding things she never knew existed and taking  it like a champ. At times I found myself yelling at her. Wanting her to stand up to Zachary. The way he treated her really pissed me off. She finally stood her ground with him.

Jack OMG.... A few times this wolf boy grove me nuts, but that's only because I wanted him to stop fighting fate. I wanted him to see that he and Emmy belonged together. Since Jack is so YUMMY, I forgave him. I also LOVED how we got a little of Jack’s POV. Although, Heather could have given us more of it. I could never get enough of Jack. What goes on in his sexy head?

I Enjoyed the scenes between Jack and Emmy they were explosive with sexual tension. Their chemistry undeniable. Even they are both young, Heather shows us thee two belong together.

We are put on another roller coaster ride in Seizing Fate. I felt my emotions thrown about. My heart breaking at times wondering what was going to happen. Laughing at some of the comedy thrown in. I really enjoyed this book I gave it 4 to 4 1/2 stars. I am looking forward to the continuing saga of Jack and Emmy story. I need to find out what happens with Zachary. Does he become a better person now? What happened with Kelsey and Adrian? Are they together now? What about the little twist with Kelsey and Zachary, where is that headed? What happened to Jamie? Who has him now? So many unanswered questions, I need answers too. I am hooked on this series.

“Emmy is my world. And there was no way I was going to let my world be shattered into pieces that couldn't be fixed. I would be her super glue, her Band-Aid, whatever the hell she needed to keep herself together. I just hoped I’d be  able to last long enough. I was strong... but really, was I strong enough for this? For her? You can bet my life I am.” -- Jack
