It starts as a few occasional rolls in the hay after some wild nights of drinking with friends. There is fire between Kade Ford and Staci Jameson. They are explosive and not always in a good way. Staci is hiding from heartbreak and not interested in anything more. When she crosses paths with Kade again, living in the same city, their arrangement turns to friends with benefits. They start this hot and heavy relationship that turns into something more, at l

Review to come.

« This is how it was with us. We didn’t just come together. We collided. »

L.A Cotton is a new author to me.
I was really impressed by the turning events of this story. This story was heartwarming, and even with some issues about the heroes past, I could be turned into a story with a lot of drama, but it didn’t. It was a swoon worthy, hot, charming and sometimes so frustrating read.

Staci and Kade have history.
All along

I spent my entire weekend reading all three of the books in this series and even though my house is still a mess, I'm behind on my assignments and my hair is greasy, I don't regret a single page!

As mentioned above I read the entire series in two days and I really liked the way they all fitted together. All six main characters are interlinked in someway, whether high school friends or college friends or friends of friends. Some parts of the stories were overlapped but at no point did it feel like

Kade Ford!!!

Those two words do things to me. Things I honestly never thought possible. I'm a Keefer girl!! I claimed him in book 2, I loved that I got to see him again in Love Collides but... Kade Ford took my heart and I don't think I want it back.

He was the guy I wasn't going to fall for, he was the one that got under my skin I got stupid over. It was suppose to be a one night stand!!! But, no there he was at the wedding, you would think I would know to stay clear of him. But I didn't I couldn

Well this is yet another brilliant read by LA Cotton. I have been a fan since she first released Fates Love, which was the first in this collection of books. It was great to catch up with Ethan (always been my favourite) and Livvy as well as Keefer and Sharn.
This book looks at the complicated yet pulling relationship between Staci Jameson and Kade Ford. They have slept together a couple of times over the few years they have known each other, both feeling the pull. But Staci’s MO is to run from

Ok, there were some times I wanted to reach through this book and just throttle Staci. I kept hoping Livy would do it but alas, she let me down. That little annoyance aside, I really did enjoy this book. If you liked the previous books in the series, you will like this one as well. Its nice to read a contemporary romance-simple, straightforward, romance. Its sweet and a little angsty (just enough to keep you interested).

I received these book as an ARC. I loved this book between the 3 this one is probably my favorite. I knew I would love Staci and Kade's story. It was true love story. I couldn't put it down.

This is the third book in the series, that just brought so many emotions to me. Faith, disappointment, pain, sadness, happiness, friendship, love, happiness. So many of them that it's hard to list them all.

Staci Jamesson is independent down to a fault. She's grown up with 3 older overprotective brothers and 1 overbearing dad. So now she has grown up, she loves her independence. She has some hidden secrets from her past. She never commits to a relationship, already being broken hearted. She has 1 night stands, and she always out the door by morning.
Kade Ford is your typical player. 1 night stands with any girl that's willing. He doesn't do relationships or love. But Kade also has baggage from his

I absolutely love love loved this book.

The main characters were explosive! I could feel the sexual tension between them fro the first meeting in the book! I loved that I connected with them right from the beginning.
I couldn't put it down and read it in one sitting, it was a case of taking it to the loo and ignoring everyone and everything.

Love Collides was truly an enjoyable to read…captivating, angst-y, sexy with a little bit of suspense!! This book reminded me of being a friends with benefits kind of story. Kade and Staci had plenty of history, let’s just say neither one had plans for romance. BUT as you know, sometimes things often don’t go according to planned.

Staci was feisty, independent and very much her own person. There were things from her past that weighted on her and really kept her from wanting to be in a relationshi

One of the things that I love about this book is the dialogue between these two. It's witty, charming, hilarious, sweet, as well as snarky. The ebb and flow between characters can be at times frustrating but I honestly think that is part of what makes Staci and Kade's story unique.
Staci is extremely independent, strong willed, and a hard worker. She does not have time for a boyfriend or a relationship. She definitely does not want anything to do with t

Holy Potatoes!!!!

Having read the other two books I dived into this one head first. I had major book hangovers from the others and needed my fix!!

Staci is a strong, independent feisty blonde. She doesn't need people in her life, she doesn't want that. She wants to live her life her way with no distractions and no tie downs. She's wired to run, why? You will find out.

Kade is sexy, mysterious and has secrets of his own to keep. He too doesn't want to settle down, he keeps people at arms length.

Two encounters, years apart. That's about he extent of Kade and Staci's relationship.

Fate throws them together one more time at a wedding for a shared friend. No strings, just fun. That's what they both want, right?

Staci has turned her back on a past that she hasn't dealt with, it makes her a runner.

Kade has a reputation as quite the ladies man and has some secrets in his past as well. But, he knows what he wants and isn't afraid to go after it.

Friendship might not be enough for him. Trust, ded

This is book three of the Fates Love Series, it can be read as a standalone but does reference characters from the previous books.

We meet Staci Jameson and Kate Ford after a drunken one night stand. Skip ahead two years were they meet again at a mutual friends wedding. Sparks fly and temptation is too much to resist.

Both lead characters have interesting past stories that are full of emotions that many people can relate to. I may have shed a tear or two

This is the first from this author that I have read. I also went into it blindly, I had no idea what to expect. What I go though was a great contemporary romance story. There was angst, it was sweet, and its a quick read. <– Yeah I basically read this all in one day. Kade and Staci are good strong characters that with help from one another move on from their pasts. They find the healing they need in the love that they share.

Received an advanced copy for my honest review for Fallen for Books.

So third book in this series, and the series keeps getting better and better.

This book follows Livy's college roommate Staci. I loved her in the first book and I'm so happy that we get to read her story.

Staci is nothing but spunk. I love her! Getting to know her backstory was really eye opening. You will need tissues!!

Then there is Kade. I so like this guy. Even if he sometimes comes off as an asshole.

Wow! This series just keeps getting better. You can read this as a stand alone book or in the series. I would suggest that you start at the beginning and read the first book Fate's Love.

Zane and Staci are written in such away that you become committed to their story. I loved the sexual chemistry, the connection and funny banter between Zane and Staci. That once you start reading Love Collides you won't want to stop till the end.

It was also great to catch up with previous book couples and to see

I have not read the first two books in this series, so I was unsure how much I was going to understand and enjoy this one. I had no reason to be worried. This book can definitely be read as a standalone book without issue. The story of Staci and Kade was amazing! There were so many emotions going on, ones that were welcomed and ones that were fought against. Every single one of them were very natural and believable too. Nothing in this story seemed forced to me. The entire plot flowed and ebbed ...more

I loved this book. The entire series is a freaking hit for me. After the first 2 books, we now focus on Staci and Kade, and Cotton definitely does not keep it light and fluffy. There's depth within this story with lots of angst, sexy moments, and lots of wondering if the two will get their happy ever ending or not. I want to cry now, because the story is over. I seriously love Cotton's writing. She writes in a way that makes you want more when it comes to everything that has to do with this book ...more
