How far can fate make you fall?

When Adelaide turned twenty, losing her parents and gaining custody of her fifteen year old sister was not part of her plan.

I feel like this book was way too short and not a lot really happened?
Could just be me though.

Adelaide's Fate was a pretty quick book to read. In it, you will meet Adelaide. She's pretty much an orphan because she thinks her parents are dead. Well her sort-of adopted parents. Then there's the face that her real parents may or may not be dead. We do know that her dad is actually dead but we don't really know about her mother - so just assume she is?

Well, her and her little sister Sophia move to a
Adelaide has been in hiding her whole life. When her parents die in a car crash, she quits school to move to a remote village and take care of her younger sister. Almost immediately, she is outed as a shifter by one of her friendly neighbors who turns out to be a shifter as well. Rick has an immediate connection to Adie and wants to protect her. Unfortunately, she has moved into a very dangerous town for shifters. He and his friends are on a secret mission to infiltrate the local hunter organiza ...more

Incredible start to this new series. We meet Adelaide just after the death of her parents which pretty much forces her to lose everything. All she has left is custody of a moody fifteen year old sister and an old house in a small town that they have never been to. Making the best of things they move in meeting the hot neighbor guys right away. As a shifter Adelaide is used to hiding but when the secrets start coming out it becomes even more important. Wonderful characters, some truly amazing wor ...more

I LOVED this book! This is a spin off of Bailey's Her Guardian series. So we get to see Winter and her men again (YAY)! You can absolutely read this book with out reading the guardian series first but Why? Her Guardian is one of my favorite series. You should check it out.

The characters make this book. They are so interesting and so engaging that I couldn't put the book down. I love Adelaide. I love her guys. I love that Rick and Nath don't try to fight what they feel. The other two do but I st

Cliffhanger ending.
This book counts towards my RHR Bingo book challenge: “terribly tragic past”.

I'm trying to read lesser known authors and books. Sometimes it turns out surprisingly well, and sometimes... Well, not so much.
This was the latter. I forced myself to finish it because I wanted to see if there was at least a decent plotwist at the end but nope. It was bad from start to finish.
Reasons why I say that?

1. The grammar. OMG. English is not my first language and even I could spot a lot of spelling mistakes and wrong grammatical structures.
2. The worldbuilding. Poor, sloppy.
3. Instal
Lovee This Book! It is a spin off to the Guardian series but you could get away with not reading them first. I love Sophie, Adelaide, to be honest I love all the Characters and the story line was brilliant which just hooks you in the first few pages. Waiting as patiently as I can for book 2!
I have to tag this with TSTL because I feel like those books were SO OBVIOUS that Adelaide is dumber than a bucket of dried paint for not being able to figure them out. I mean, come on now. Clearly her mum should have invested in a flashing neon sign. Though who knows if that would have worked any better at pointing out the obvious to Adelaide.

I don't particularly like the guys - they are either douchebags, or they come on too strong, or they ping-pong wildly between those two extremes and give

Don't understand how other reviewers rate this so highly. Yes, the story had potential but the writing style with no contractions made it awkward to read and jarred me out of the story. Then there's the plot devices, very awkward and quite childish and before the end of the first chapter, I wanted to skip pages. No connection to any characters, they were so full of teenage angst. This review reflects my review of a previous purchase by this author. Others rate her highly, so I've learned my less ...more
Adelaide's has taken over raising her younger sister after her parents died, having to leave university and go into hiding for their protection. Her only option to due to the lack of funds was to move into the house that her parents had but it's not been used in a long time. After arriving in at the home they instantly catch the attention of the neighbors a group of attractive shifters who say that leaving the house isn't safe.

The whole point of coming to her parent's house was the hope of stay

This book is the spin-off to Her Guardian series, this book is Adelaide’s story, and it explains the events that happen which leads up to a certain deal already made. An extra bonus is Winter and her guys make an appearance. This book was so good, knowing I’d read this book in a day because it’s that good, I started on a new day and not the night before like I was tempted to do. It has been a while in which I did a low patch shriek when it ended and it ended on a “cliffhanger.” Hopefully, we'll ...more

OMG This book was AHHH-MAZING! I loved the first book in this spin off series from Her Guardians! If you are a fan of the Her Guardians Series, then make sure to check this out! Winter and all her men are back for snips which is wonderful. Plus this book sort of revolves around Freddy! Yes he is back and found his mate... but he goes by Rick now and still loves his oreos!

I stepped off in this unprepared. There really needs to be a warning or something in there at the beginning maybe even page 1 that there are not only 1 but 2 series that are ahead of this in the timeline. By the time I was told, and looked them up I was already half way through this one and frustrated as could be at the spoilers lol. All that aside...This book was extremely fast paced in the G. Bailey way that the characters decide on a course of action and balls to the wall till the end, and at ...more

This is a difficult book to complete. The premise was fun and the world in which the story takes place interesting, as well. A few other reviewers have indicated issues with grammar and odd phrasing. There were some sentence structures that made no sense. I've read many novels by writers who are from outside of the US and my family is from outside of the US, so its not that I am uncomfortable or was unfamiliar with a variety of verbiage and whatnot. This was just not edited well.

G. Bailey has done it again with an amazing spinoff series of the Her Guardian stories. It's great to see some of the original characters play a part of this new tale, without being too involved and allowing for Adelaide, Rick, Nath, Mich and Josh play the central parts in this story.

Adelaide's Fate has so many twists and turns because of all the secrets that Adelaide keeps unearthing. But I love that she never lets anything keep her down as she searches for the answers to who she is. I love th

Adelaide's Fate is a spinoff of the Her Guardians series. It features Freddy, aka Rick, who is Winter's stepson, who is a half-vampire and half wolf shifter. And Adelaide, who after her parents died got custody of her 15 year old sister. I really love Adie and Sophie's relationship, and how mature and responsible she is. Not only is she tough but she is a total sweetheart as well, which makes for a character you love to read about. I fell for her from the start. Gem does a fantastic job of creat ...more

Amazing!! I loved every page of this book. By 9 percent in I was already going through all the emotions, crying and excited. All this extra information with everything tying together was genius. Adie is an amazing heroine, she's so grounded and takes everything in stride. I'm so excited to see what's gonna happen with Freddy and his crew!

This was beyond amazing! These characters will quickly suck you in! Each of the guys are so uniquely individual. They each have their own reactions, their own haunting pasts and their own draw to Adelaide. Our main girl is tough but an honest sweetheart. She is in way over her head, but with her guys vowing to protect her, I'm looking forward to a happily ever after.... we just need to get past that huge cliffhanger!

The wording was a huge issue for me on this. I get the feeling the author is not from the US, I don't know this for fact, but some of the slang used in the book is not anything I've heard in the southwestern US. (I'm not against foreign authors, but I need to understand what I'm reading in order to appreciate it) Trying to understand a lot of the slang used was really hard for me to sink into the story.

I loved the series Her Guardians and was so happy there is a spin-off. Especially since it has the characters from the first book...if the second book was available I would have devoured it immediately. Sadly, the author tells you that she doesn't have a release date. :( But I will be watching for the next one.

I love all the guys and Adelaide. And adore Sophia. This book is about the Fray we were introduced to in the previous series. I wanted to know more about them then and am excited tha

Adelaide is such a strong character, you can tell she always wants to do what is right. The males of this book you first met when they were children in Winter’s books. They are grownup now and so protective of Adelaide. This story really set a great foundation for the future books and I can’t wait to see what Gem has next for us. It was so great to see all the characters from Winter’s books especially all the children grown up. I personally loved Winters books. If you haven’t read those you need ...more

This was fantastic!!!

I am a huge fan of Bailey's Her Guardian's series and this was the perfect spin off. It was closely related to the MCs in Guardians (you did know who the characters were without having to re-read the series) but it wasn't so close that you kept referring to the other story in your mind. However, if you haven't read Her Guardians I would before you read this just so that you are well versed in Winter's world and are able to know the back stories on the males.
