Sorry didn't work for me.
I wanted to love it so badly too..but some choices of the characters were things I could never get past. I did love the sweet I parts..friends and kids..those were great. Loved the ending..very sentimental. Just had issues with the Hero..badly.

We can either put this down to it being 'not my cup of tea'

OR... have a good rant... hmmm...

I literally just put this book down, and I picked up my laptop. I love it when I read a book that touches me like that. One that compels me to go right to my computer and write a review. This is Jaime Whitley's first solo novel and my first time reading her work. I am in awe of her talent and the story that she told.

I can't get over the twists that this book took. Just when I thought everything was going good, I looked at my counter on my Kindle and said to myself, "Crap. There is too much time
Silas and Lilly meet in an airport through coincidence. He's traveling through the Army and she's out and about on business. There's an immediate connection that draws them into one another, yet all they're looking for is a night with no strings attached....or so they thought.

It's hard to forget that one person that no one else can live up to.

As time passes their lives move on, but fate takes over and throws them one too many twists. Will their connection be strong enough to pull them in the ri

Captivating! The characters are written so you can't help but root for them, even when they tick you off! The story isn't predictable and keeps your attention from page 1. Great debut novel from Jaime Whitley, you can't go wrong with this book!!!

Twist of Fate is my first read by Jamie. I have to say like others I couldn't and didn't want to put it down.
She had me the minute Silas sat down at the airport. Silas in the ARMY on his way home for R&R runs into Lilly while she is waiting for her flight. Come to find out they are on the same flight sitting next to each other. Silas helps Lilly and her nerves while flying. When they reach their next destination they find out flights have been canceled. Silas being the man he is get a hotel

Twist of Fate touched me.
Silas and Lilly are both relatable characters and the situations they faced were all too real.
My emotions were involved and in more than one instance, my gut was clenching as I read through the scenes.
A chance encounter with life long consequences and the rollercoaster ride of navigating real life is covered in this book.
I laughed. I cried. I might have wanted to punch Silas and shake Lilly on a few occasions, but through it all I was pulling for this couple.

I like the story... a lot.. but I found myself skipping a few times, coz I wanted to read the good and exciting part. I love stories like this, complicated relationship, etc.

I like the characters and the story. I kind of didn't like how good and understanding she is towards his ex, though it would have been better if the ex was a bitch and I would have loved it more if it was prolonged.

I love when a book grabs your attention and will not let you put it down until you are finished. For me that Twist of fate. You have a story of two people passing through an airport that happen to meet by fate, and when their flights get delayed for a night, what better thing to do than get to know each other and have some drinks and a one night stand. Well what happens when the person you have a one night stand with is the one person you measure everyone else to in the future. But fast forward ...more

This book sounded perfect for me. The cover is beautiful and I had no doubt that I'd love it.

I need to learn not to judge a book by it's cover.

I'm only 50% in and I'm calling it as a DNF. The story has potential; a ton of potential. BUT, the writing is a mess. It feels rushed and there are no real descriptions. The flight didn't even last half a page, and by the next they'd eaten dinner, gone to the bar, and were back in the hotel kissing.

I don't read for someone to tell me the story. I read s

I was excited to read this one because again being a book cover whore than on top Jaime is my friend, I knew I would just love it.. And I did.

Why the 4 star than if I loved it? Well even thou I loved it didn't make me think about it the next day. It had a great story line and the idea of getting 2nd chances was awesome! The only thing that thru me was the names of the characters .. Silas was a name that I never heard of and the sons name Ezra... But that makes this book unique .. Anyways so the

holy hotness! I was so infatuated by this book that I literally read it until the wee hours of the night, or should I say morning? Lilly, smart, a little bit witty and sexy as hell had me cheering for her happiness, even with her silly mistakes. the sexiness that is Silas had me begging for more. and honestly, who could refuse the hotness of a man in uniform? hello?! no one!! this love story is so amazingly amazing that I don't think my eyes could have shed anymore happy tears by the end.

This is a very, very good book. It is emotional and well written. I got so into the story that at one point I wanted to slug Silas!! (When you read it you will understand.) Let's just say that the path of love is seldom straight.
I love the characters. Even the secondary characters are great! I love Megan, Declan, and Joe. They stand by Lily and make her laugh. What more could you ask from friends?
Be sure to give this book a try. You won't be sorry!

Lily lets her guard down for a fun one night stand only to end up with the greatest gift of her life. Silas is on his way back from some R & R and isn't looking for anything serious.

Fast forward three years - what happens when the one night stand you can't forget about shows up with his girlfriend at your book signing? How do you begin to tell him about the greatest gift you've ever gotten that was a result of the one night of passion? What happens when you both realize that those feelings

I had a hard time reading this one- I didn't really connect with the characters, I almost DNF, but I hate doing that. It took me a long time to finish the book. I normally read books in a day, this one took me over 3 days.

Review by Jen Hagen
Tattoed bad boys, rock stars, motorcycle men, and one-night stand babies – those are a few of my favorite things, and included in this book is one of those. Can you guess which one??

Lilly and Silas meet while waiting for their flights. The flights end up being cancelled for the night due a storm and Silas manages to get a hotel room for the two of them . They both agree to one night of sex with no phone numbers and no last names exchanged. Both feel an incredib

Twist of Fate was a great read! I would give it a solid 4 stars. This is a book about a one night stand that will change the lives of both the characters in a blink of an eye. It does have an HEA which I am forever thankful for because we all know how much I love cliffys :). It is told in dual POV's and is a standalone novel.

Silas and Lilly meet at an airport when they both are waiting for there flight. There is an instant spark and neither one knows how to handle it. When there flight gets del

Twist of Fate was a story of what was supposed to be a one-night stand turning into something so much more.
Silas and Lily agree to one night together, no phone numbers, no last names and no strings attached but fate had other ideas. Neither of them could have imagined that a few years down the line they would be in each other’s lives again and this time it won’t be easy for them to walk away thanks to that one night’s conception.

Once again, I have picked up a book without reading the synopsis and, therefore, I had no idea what to expect from Twist of Fate aside from the story featuring a hunk with a ton of ink. That alone is a valid reason to crack it open and give it a shot!! I am very glad that I did because I found that this is more similar to a real life situation than most books these days. Two average people meet in an airport, spend the night together, and end up falling

I really enjoyed reading this story, it was a quick read for me and I flew through it in a few hours.

Lilly and Silas meet at an airport whilst waiting for a flight, they end up sitting together and chat easily throughout the journey. On reaching their lay-over airport they find the flight is cancelled so Silas, ever the gentleman, arranges a hotel room for them for the night. That’s all they have, one night together, one amazing night with no ties. They both agree to one night only, so they part

Jaime Whitley and I met through our love of reading and our friendship developed from there. I'm pleased to participate in the blog tour for her solo debut novel Twist Of Fate and celebrate with her. I'd read Jaime's co-authored novels The One Left Behind and Shattered Lives Mended Hearts (written as Lena Nicole) and looked forward to what she was going to write on her own. It was easy to recognize her style as she likes to tell a story.

What I liked most about Twist Of Fate was Lilly's devotion

This book is by far one of my favorites of 2014! This is the first book I have read from Jaime Whitley and after reading I can not not read more of her work! I was completely sucked into the lives of LIlly and Silas right from the first page. I was up till 4:00 am becasue I could not put it down till the very end. The chemistry that these 2 have put goosebumps on my arms. Lilly is a strong female lead and I relate to her 100% (being a single mom I can understand where the character is coming fro ...more
