Twist of Fate
(An interconnected standalone)
Publication Date: February 22, 2021
Genre/Tropes: Second Chance/Friends To Lovers/Contemporary Romance
Author: Tia Louise
I fell for Scout in his brother’s book, I cannot tell a lie. I was really looking forward to learning more about Scout and the woman who would bring this easy, laid back, funny man to his knees. Tia gives us the perfect glance into the man Scout is, how he became the man he is, and the after affects of that infamous car ride with his brother in Twist of Fate. Every bit of this book is perfect!
There were certain bits and pieces that we knew about Scout from reading This Much is True, but for new readers you can read Twist of Fate as a complete standalone if needed. However, I loved learning more about the horrible pitfalls that Scout fell into and I especially loved learning about the one woman that held his attention, that woman that got away, Daisy.
Before Scout ever left for Hollywood to make a career on the big screen, he lived a small life in South Carolina. He also fell pretty hard for a girl named Daisy, once when he was in high school, but she turned him down. Then after college right before he was getting ready to leave for the west coast they had an amazing week together, but that’s all it could be. Little did he know he left her with a part of himself and wouldn’t get a chance to see her again for several years, but when he came back a few years later nothing was going to stop him…at least he hoped. He just never imagined what was waiting to greet him and change his life forever.
Their relationship is intense and steamy, but more than that my heart broke for both Scout and Daisy. It’s a relationship that is affected by circumstance and outside factors and has very little to do with the true caring they have for one another. I love how Tia crafted their story and developed their love.
Twist of Fate is an absolutely perfect interconnected book to This Much is True, straddling both sides of JR’s story while giving us a complete standalone and fresh look at Scout’s life. It’s a perfect look at what is important in life at the end of the day.
A friends-to-lovers, second-chance, stand-alone romance by USA Today bestselling author Tia Louise.
To be “just friends” with a guy, you’ve got to follow The Rules:
Don’t touch him unnecessarily.
Don’t share your intimate dreams with him (even if he asks).
Don’t kiss him, and definitely don’t sleep with him.
Scout Dunne and I have been “just friends” since childhood.
He’s everything you could want—sexy, charming, confident—every girl’s wet dream.
Until we broke The Rules.
We broke them in the ocean, in my aunt’s bathroom, in my bed…
It was the hottest week of my life.
I’m one of the few people who knows the first-round NFL draft pick wants more than a life of sports.
Because we’re friends, right?
Now he’s gone, and I’m trying to get my career back on track.
Mamma said a guy would never put your dreams ahead of his.
But the twist of fate?
It’s something you never see coming.
