A set designer and a movie star are stranded together in the wilderness after filming.
Upon realizing that no one is coming for them – her car won’t start and he told everyone not to bother him – they decide to rough it out together.
In an unlikely twist of fate, the little moments of smiles, flirting, openness and comfort begin to build into something more. The stranded weekend turns into a romantic fantasy.
As all fantasies do, however, it comes to an end. Jon Jacobs is a movie star, after all, and Becca is just, well, Becca. When they return to the real world, friends and family begin to doubt the longevity of the so-called fling.
How could these two people, who are so different and from different places, be this into each other after such a short period of time? Who is using who here?
In the midst of these doubts, something happens that could bring them together forever. But will it last? Will fate allow it?
I’ve been a fan of this author from way back, and this latest novel was all I’d come to expect from her…and more: well-drawn characters, intriguing plot, full to the brim with romance and desire. It tackles more than just boy-meets-girl-and-they-fall-in-love. It’s got real-life complications added in, which makes it all the more interesting to read, drawing you right in and keeping you on your toes. You really can’t go wrong with anything she’s written, but this novel definitely should be on your must-read list! -JoB
When I opened Fate Cuts Both Ways to read, I freaked a bit because it’s a longish book but this one was manageable. It’s split into three sections which made it easier to plan out my reading time. Jon is an actor and Becca a set designer. They both get left behind on a set for the weekend. These two are genuine characters. Jon is an actor but he’s not cocky. Becca and Jon have a great connection and have a great weekend. After the weekend they have to deal with real life. Once back Jon and Becca want to continue what they started. Friends and family are not all that supportive at first. The third part was the part that I liked the most. In the third part of the book Jon and Becca deal with loss and struggle with their relationship after that. There story has ups and downs and truly fate brings both bad and good and I was rooting for these two to come out on top. – Amazeballs Book Addicts
