Hopeless romantic Luis wants to write a love story, but he’s never even kissed a man. Luckily, his hunky mentor can teach him much more than just how to write a book. Too bad it all comes with a price.

By the age of twenty-three, I’ve read enough romance novels to fill up a library. My own love life is yet to start, but I’m in no rush. True love comes to those who wait, and I won’t settle for less than Happy Ever After. So what’s the point in kissing any frogs?
But when my clairvoyant grandmother sees heartbreak looming in my future, I learn that life is rarely that simple. And when bestselling author Adam Allister offers to help me write my first novel, I’d be a fool to say no, even if every cell in my body warns me to stay away.
After all, as long as I don’t fall for him, I’m safe. And, with a man as cynical and unromantic as Adam, that shouldn’t be a difficult task.
Is he hotter than all the cover models of my favorite novels combined? Yeah.
Do I sometimes forget to breathe if he looks at me a certain way? I guess…
Is one smile from him enough to fill my mind up with pulse-quickening daydreams of unknown pleasures? Um, I’d rather not answer that.
None of this matters, anyway. Now that I know what fate’s got in store for me, I won’t be foolish enough to put myself in harm’s way. Not when my heart is on the line.

Against Fate is the slow-burn, heart-warming story of two men who learn to put their conflicting ideas of love aside in order to discover the real thing together. Peppered with extra-steamy scenes, the book is guaranteed to make you blush and swoon all the way to the Happy Ever After. This is the first book in the Prince Castle series, but it can be read as a stand-alone.

My review: 

This book is perfection in every way. I can't believe it this is a debut novel, because it's more than amazing!

I loved it from the first letter to the very last. I fell in love with the story then later on with the characters too. The writing style is really great, it's easy to read and the whole story is realistic.
The romance is top notch and the story arc is so good. It is so well written and the emotions came through perfectly.

Luis is a hopeless romantic who waits for his Prince Charming - I could connect with Luis so much, I saw myself in him so many times and it was really good. 
Adam is the opposite - writes thriller and doesn't believe in romance. 

It was so good to see these two together, Luis changed Adam in many ways and I loved seeing Adam in those situations. Both were lovely but when they came together it was more than sweet. 

The whole grandma-vision and the writing process was so, so good. And I loved how Luis wrote subconsciously about their love story. 

The romance was the best - it was sweet and real and hot. The slow burn was oh-so-good and well written. And when it came to the erotica, phew! Hot as hell.

The big-gesture to win back the love of his life - just as in romance books - was so good. I hoped this kind of ending and it was moe than good.

I loved this book so much. I can't tell how amazing it was, I just can't find the words. And it still blows my mind that it's a debut novel! HOW!

New favorite! And can't wait the next book. At this point I'll read anything and everything from the author - if he writes this good for the first time, I can't wait to find out the other books.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK. Really. You need to read this.
