Start your review of Fortuitous (Anabella Summers Series Book 1)
A marginal improvement on Unforseen in the sense that there was actually some description*, Fortuitous was still a DNF early on due to writing style. The MC's voice has the maturity of a thirteen year old girl and the interactions are heavy on cheese and get-over-yourself.

I skim read some of the rest and was absolutely horrified to read rape described thusly "Then, one night, his date at the time came into my room and raped me. With men we aren’t used to calling non-consensual sex rape. Regardle

Once again Krystal White has written a story you can't turn away from. Although there were several aspects of this book I found similar to the Alessandra Powell series by this author, I loved the characters, the dialogue, and the setting she's created. Let me just say this author can write one helluva steamy scene! If you like erotica, this book is riiiight up your alley. There were a number of typos I noticed in this story. They don't detract from the flow at all - and i'm sure they'll be picke ...more

I would give this 41/2 Stars.
I just finished reading the Alessandra Powell Series , my first series or even book by author, Krystal White. So my expectations were high.
This story is about a young 17 year old teenager, Anabella who had loving parents. It was their habit once a month to have date night. This last date night, they went out and were sideswiped by a drunk teenager who was texting on the phone and both of them were killed. Anabella has to make a decision to pack up her house and sell

This book starts out great and then gets a little bumpy as you continue to read. Major cliff hanger and the next book is only 50 pages. I enjoyed. but won’t be continuing the series

This little Novella is the first book I have read of this authors work so for Lulu that is a nice afternoons read and I was given a copy by the author. I admit I did not realise it is a Novella size and I do have a love/hate relationship with Novellas as I love detail, detail, detail in my romance and I generally feel rushed when reading a Novella.

Firstly, the sex scenes were really well written and the interactions Bella has with various characters such as in the pool, lift and at her home I di

I just finished Fortuitous, and I was able to read it in one sitting! If you're looking for a quick easy read, this would be what I would recommend. However, just because it's a short read, it does not mean it lacks in sex scenes. There are definitely some steamy scenes in this story!

For the first 17 years of Anabella's life have been very fortunate. She was blessed with loving and adoring parents. After Anabella's parents death, she closed herself off, preferring to be on her own she didn't even allow Evan in. Kayla agreed to sell the house and have Anabella move to LA with her. She thinks that a change of scenery will be good and that she might be able to mourn her loss. What she didn't was to meet Marcus and everything started to move fast.

“Just thinking about Marcus has me feeling warm all over and I”m sure I’m grinning like a madwoman yet I can’t help it. Whenever images of what I’ve done with my boyfriend flood my brain I get this way.”

Anabella (Bella) has been thankful for her life so far, but then her parents are killed and she is left devastated. She moves to LA with her older sister to start afresh and this is where she meets Marcus.
The attraction was instant for both of them and there is some degree of an age a difference that I actually forgot about when I was so engrossed in the story. Things progress quickly the Bella and Marcus and I couldn't help but feel that there was more to him that meets the eye.

When Anabella looses both her parents, her world comes tumbling down. It doesn't help to find that her boyfriend and her best friend are also sleeping together. So Anabella decides to pickup and leave with only two months left of High School to go live with her sister. Here she meets Marcus and their relationship moves along pretty fast, a little too fast for my taste but maybe that's how it works for some people. I kept feeling like there was something that Marcus was keeping secret though. Wit ...more

I read this over a wet weekend and it certainly livened my mood up. The plot is actually quite straight forward but with an underlying current of mystery which quickly deepens. The characters were good and quickly established and I liked the age difference between the characters which made it more intriguing. I think Fortuitous is a strong start to the series and I'm looking forward to the next instalment. ...more

Another winner for Krystal. This is a short sweet look into again what's going to be another amazing series.
I honestly can't put into words how her books keep me engaged from page one. Annabelle goes thru some devasting life events and just when you think its all going great for her bam Krystal takes the story on the opposite direction and leaves us hanging. Looking forward to book two.

Fortuitous is the first book in The Annabelle Summers series, and is my first read by Author Krystal White. I have to say that I loved the concept of this story. After having read this first book, I felt the author wisely left the story open for many possible paths. While I did enjoy the story line, I felt that some of the transitions in the story were not as smooth and that additional editing was necessary. However, I am definitely intrigued enough to continue with the series.

This is book one in the Annabelle Summers series.It is a short Novella, so it is a quick and easy read. I loved the premise of this story and really liked the characters in it.

I did feel that the story was really good, however the story line was not developed enough and it tends to ump from one thing to the next without any real explanation or link, it didn't develop enough. I also feel it could do with re-editing. However, I am intrigued to know what will happen in book 2!

This is the first book in the Anabella Summers series and it's a great read! It does end on quite a cliffhanger and I can't wait to see what happens next! There are some smoking hot love scenes here and this book felt like a platform for the series to take off from and I am very much looking forward to see where this author takes this series next. I highly recommend this book to anyone to read and I am definitely planning on reading much more from this author in the future. ...more

This story, although short and sweet has manage to capture the reader and take them on a journey along side the characters.
Krystal has a way of sucking you into the book so that it feels like your actually living the book not just reading it!

Short but clever story which seems to set out the basis for the series going forward. The characters are all introduced and plenty of intrigue is introduced which leads to speculation as to what their real intentions are. I'm looking forward to seeing how the story progresses from here. ...more

From time to time I love reading storylines like Krystal White's book Fortuitous. As the title states this story was mesmerizing as well as a steamy book. I can't wait to read more of this authors books.

My name is Krystal and I love reading and writing! I doubt I could be without my kindle as I take it everywhere with me as every moment I can spear I spend it reading.

I have always thought of myself as quite inventive and I figured it was time to put my creativity and imagination to work! That's when I decided to buy a smaller laptop that I could easily carry with me and furiously write whenever
