There are some things you can count on in life. Boy Scouts will sell popcorn in the fall. Texas will be hot as hell in August. Teenage boys will roll their eyes at their moms. And Caisey Quinn will write kick ass books that will be full of emotion and characters that will stay with you.

Fate is engaged to a jackass. One that quickly proves how unworthy his is of her affection and loyalty. But now that she is unengaged, she finds she is several other things like homeless and pennil

CQ wrote it. I read it. Hell to the yeah

Sexy? NO
Steamy? FUCK NO
stimulating? sorta
lustful? getting warmer
Provocative and Seductive? YES, YES, GOD YES.
Flirtatious and Inviting, delectable and dreamy, sensuous and racy.

This book ignited the fire that burns in my nether regions to an inferno that could cause bodily harm.

Caisey Quinn has branched so far out of her comfort zone and SHE FUCKING ROCKED MY WORLD.

Cute book, but I think Dean was constantly on his period. His back and forth was enough to give me whiplash.

Although I’m a big fan of Caisey Quinn’s books, the first one in her Second Chance series was not a favorite of mine. So, I was a bit reserved in hitting the one-click this time around for the second installment. Fortunately, this time was everything I have come to expect and love about Quinn's writing. I loved this story along with Dean Maxwell and Fate Buchanan, who are both engaging and interesting characters. Dean could be a bit self-centered and rude at times, making it a challenge to like

This is a review for Falling for Fate and its prequel Falling for You.

“It damn sure is my business. How can you do your real job if you’re out every night, prancing around half naked behind the bar till God knows when?”

Our leading man, ladies and gentlemen! Isn't he charming? (And yes, he says this to the heroine.)

Falling for Fate opens with Fate coming to New York for her first job. Initially, she was meant to move there with her soon-to-be husband, but when she caught him che

Caisey Quinn is an Author that I have been in "fan-girl crush mode" with since I first read Girl with Guitar last year. I thought I had read every single book of hers, but it seems that Last Second Chance (book 1 of this series) slipped right by me. How that happened I have no clue, but I will be going back to read that soon (can't break my streak). However, I am please to say that Falling for Fate is a true stand alone book. I never felt like I was out of sync with the book or the characters, s

I have to do a little happy dance every time I get a new Caisey Quinn book to read, but I think FALLING FOR FATE has to be my favorite by far (sorry Trace).

As the second book in the Second Chance series, it takes a bit of a departure and moves from the rehab ranch of the same name in Texas to the big Yankee city of New York. There, broken hearted Fate Buchanan tries to put her shattered life back together as she starts her new job at Maxwell Medical. She didn't expect the newly appointed CFO to

I would have to say that I was a bit disappointed, but not with the whole story. I enjoyed 'Falling For You' a lot, so I really wanted to know what would happen to Dean and Fate's lives. I eagerly jumped into this book, and as the story went on, I found myself holding my breath several times while reading this one. It wasn't because of the excitement or anything, but it was just because I was so afraid things might go downhill from any parts of the story.

I was repeatedly frustrated with Dean an
I just finished this book at 2AM because I just couldn't stop! I even put my kindle down to try and sleep but that was so obviously not happening! This book is a little different pace than Caisey's other books and I could not let it go. And the steam factor is WOW. Dean will melt your heart and Fate will make you proud to be a woman. These characters were so well done and I loved every minute of it! So creative, sweet and sexy. This is definitely one my favorite reads.

This is by far my favorite

Y'all, I have a new favorite Caisey Quinn book and it's called Falling for Fate. I really enjoyed Last Second Chance, the first book in her standalone Second Chance series, and was ridiculously excited to get my hands on Falling for Fate before it was released. I cracked it open and read it cover-to-cover (or the eBook version of this, anyhow) in one sitting. Falling for Fate is the type of book that grabs onto you in the first few pages and re

OMG. I've fallen in love with Caisey Quinn even more. I've read her Kylie Ryans Series and LOVED it. She knows how to make you all goo eyed for her heroine. If you are looking for a second chance at love and a comedy romance, this is the book for you. This is book two in the Second Chance series, but could be read as a standalone.

It’s always exciting to dive into another addicting read from Caisey Quinn, because I know without a doubt I’ll be hooked for the duration and will devour every word! Falling for Fate is no exception, bringing us a heartbroken heroine and her knight in shining armor as their paths criss-cross into the world of corporate meetings, misunderstood lust, and denial about what their hearts truly want and need.

Fate was at her absolute lowest the day she literally ran into Dean’s life.

Caisey Quinn writes romances that make you fall in love with characters before they even fall for each other. She takes you inside of their minds and hearts and slowly captivates you and seduces you with their dreams and struggles. You fight with them and for them.
This is that type of story.

This was a very sexy and passionate romance.

Caisey Quinn has become one of my very favorite authors. If she writes it, I read it. And I love it. She's never let me down yet-- in fact, she gets better and better with each book. And Falling for Fate is another book to add to this list of amazing books. I don't know how she does it, but I'm glad she does! DEAN is definitely a new top book boyfriend!

The second book in the Second Chance series came as a bit of a surprise to me, as I thought it would also revolve around the Second Chance Ranch facility we were introduced to in the first book in the series Last Second Chance. While the ranch is mentioned a few times, it wasn't by any means the focal point of the novel. Instead, we are transported from Texas to New York City and we trade the spurs and horses for boardrooms and sexy CEO's in training.

The book actually starts with a novella, Fal

I adore Caisey, especially her Keep Me Still books so I was happy to dive into a new series from her. Falling for Fate is book two in a series, however it truly can stand alone.

Dean and Fate have a very 'fateful' encounter one night after Fate discovers her fiancée has been cheating on her with her best friend. Her whole life, she's tried to do the right thing including saving herself for marriage and now she finds all of her previous

This is my first time reading anything by Caisey Quinn and what a read it was. I adored this book for several reasons including the likable characters, the windy plot and the happy ending coming in an unexpected way. Fate Buchanan was doing everything the "right" way, holding onto her virtue until she was married, graduating college, and having a job secured before getting married, yet life still hands her a bad hand. Her fiance has been cheating on her for over a year with her best friend, and ...more

This book is a little different from what Caisey usually writes but it's just as good!

This book ran me through so many emotions. I was pissed, turned on, sad, and then repeat. Also I laughed my ass off at times as well.

"Tell me what you need. Tell me what's wrong. Just...tell me something." ... "I need to feel something," she whispered. "Something good. Something to make me forget."

Fate was engaged to douchebag, I mean Trevor, until she caught him balls deep in her best friend. So she does wha

Caisey what you do to me!! Caisey has this way of writing that pulls the feels right out of me, even when I don't want it to. She writes these exceptional love stories that you can't help but get sucked into. A don't put it down, up all night type of read.

Fate. What do I have to say for this girl. She started off so meek, mousey, quiet, a pushover. Then a cold heartbreaking truth literally smacks her in the face. Trevor. A fiancé. Melissa. A best friend. Dean

When Fate’s life is flipped completely upside down, she runs. By running, I mean she takes off down the beach and asks for a sign. She’s met by a man that makes her forget, but then she runs… again! This is the first time she’s every done anything so irrational in her life, but in doing so she frees herself. What she doesn’t bargain for is to come face to face with the man she gave everything to on the beach.

Oh my Lord this book was amazing. I had to stop reading every five minutes to fan my self!!! I loved Dean and Fate story so much. I felt like once I finished reading me and my kindle need to take a cold shower!!!!

I loved all the characters in this book. The witty banter back and fourth with all them made me laugh out loud a few times.

I so need more of Dean and Fate.

I love Dean who cares if he's not a rock star or a bad ass! He's got and angsty lost boy quality all girls love to hate. And Fate's name is too perfect it's was truly fate that had a hand in naming her. I loved this book and powered through it while working my butt off.
