It's hard to review a book that was such a quick read but for the length of the book, it was enjoyable. “Fated Hearts” is a sweet little story that I believe should and could be developed into a longer story. Jacob and Lia are likable and relatable characters with a situation that most can follow. However, the length is quite short and rushed. It ended quite abruptly. I am not even sure it would be considered novella length but again, it is a sweet little quick read of a story.
Lia Henley is escaping everything she has never known. Leaving behind a broken engagement and a disappointed family, she’s moved across country in search of the passion, desire, and romance she's been missing. And she finds it all in one night, in the arms of Jacob McGaren.
But one night is all that Jacob can offer Lia. He's already got two daughters, a sick mother, and a crazy ex-wife to deal with... he doesn't need a sweet, sexy girl to distract him. A girl who he later discovers is his daughter's new teacher.
But sometimes even those that seem ill-fated have a way of finding love where they least expect it.
