The conclusion to Dylan and Audrey’s story begun in Sweet Liar.

Dylan Locke knows that pining over the young ingenue Audrey Lind is pointless. He can’t offer her what she wants. He definitely can’t give her what she needs. Thank goodness she’s half a world away, and he doesn’t have to deal with his attraction head on.

But fate has other plans for him, and when Audrey once ag

Mindy Lou's Book Review
I am in love with Dylan and Audrey's story! It's so rare for an author to have something I normally don't want in a book, and I didn't love it despite it, but because of it. So what is it? Call me old fashioned but I want the hero to chase the heroine. That's what I love but in this duet Audrey does the chasing. It not only worked, I'm actually glad she did it.

There were a few factors that made this work for me. The biggest is that this was done in Dylan's POV. I knew what he was thinking and I

I didn’t belong in her world. She didn’t belong in mine. Life after love was a desert. That was where I lived. That was my truth. Any vision I had of Audrey being there with me was a mirage.

The conclusion to the ”Dirty Sweet” duet started off a bit slow and I have to admit that it didn’t quite measure up to book one. It took me a while to figure out that the story was picking up two years after the last time Dylan and Audrey saw each other.

I wish I loved it more 😕

Although in Sweet Liar, Dylan Locke was totally drool worthy with his British accent and his cool style and his “I am your daddy but I want to act as a sensible grown up" behaviour, in Sweet Fate I couldn't stand him.
He still wants Aubrey, but he feels that
everything is pointless,
he is too old,
Aubrey is too young and too romantic,
they have no future,
he is just her mentor and not her lover etc etc etc

This book is entirely told in Dylan’s POV, so we can read all his inter

Dylan Locke and Audrey Lind’s story began in Sweet Liar where they met in New York and shared explosive passion together. Dylan couldn’t get over their age difference, and felt he wasn’t what she needed or deserved. He didn’t do committed relationships, and didn’t believe in forever or happy endings. He was a cynic who closed down his emotions long ago after a broken heart destroyed him. He’s accepted his bachelor status, and co-own

So good!

I love Dylan and Audrey so much! They are so perfect for each other. This book is told in Dylan’s POV which I truly enjoyed and is the perfect ending to their story.

Dylan is a very complex guy, who’s been terribly hurt by his ex wife. This causes him to be afraid of giving his heart again to another person, so he shuts down the idea of love and a happily ever after. He feels he’s not meant to have those things, but in comes Audrey. She’s a hopeless romantic and sweeps Dylan

Dirty Sweet Duet is the series I fall for Miss Paige. Her romance story is dirty and steamy. I like the combination of both. I read many books of age gap and forbidden romance. I like Sweet Fate. Miss Paige does not only focus on the sex, but also on the characters.

Sweet Fate brings the final conclusion of Audrey and Dylan HEA romance. Miss Paige explore deeply into their fears, their age gap, how different they both are and their family. I love their banter, their character development. I also

I still love love love Dylan and Audrey. Even with the huge age difference, they are perfect together. I absolutely love how Dylan tries so hard to fight his feelings for Audrey. The age gap really weighs on him and as much as he tries to ignore his feelings, he just can’t get her out of his head.
Audrey knows what she wants and she wants Dylan. She’s not afraid to fight for what she wants.
It was the perfect conclusion for these two!!

"The feel of her, the weight of her in my arms, was like finding gravity. Like discovering the best ballast. Like being firmly anchored after too long adrift at sea."

OH. MY. GOODNESS. I. LOVE. THIS. BOOK. Sweet Fate was everything I wanted and SO MUCH more! Dylan and Audrey are seriously one of my absolute favorite couples. I could not have been more addicted to their story. The Dirty Sweet Duet covered so many of my romance bases. Older man. Younger women. Age Gap. British Alpha. DILF. Kism

AUDIO EDITION: 2.5 stars

Shane East and Carly Robins did a good job narrating. Shane East's voice/accent was so hypnotic that sometimes I had to rewind the audio because I was so in love with how he said things rather than what he said.

Overall it was an okay read but the story line was bland and I struggled to remain interested. Despite the great male narration, I had a difficult time liking Dylan. He is a male version of a "Debbie Downer" with his constant complaining and insecurities that drag

I am a little conflicted about this book and also in the minority. I love a point of view from the hero. They are really usually so insightful and real. But in this instance, I was just so frustrated about how much of a repetitive nature it was. For 3/4 of the book, it was a bit of a pity party.....I am too old for the heroine, I don’t want the same things, I can’t give her what she wants, I am divorced, I have a teenage who is closer in age to her than was always the glass ha

How do you review perfection? What the heck do you say about a book that was just absolutely perfect? Do you talk about the characters and how much you liked them? Do you say you couldn't put it down? Do you say that books like this are the reason the author is one of your favorites?

I guess you start with that, by saying it was exactly what you wanted it to be...for all of those reasons.

There were no parts of this I would change, there was nothing that seemed out

This book epitomizes what I love about a Laurelin Paige book. Dylan and Audrey just have that chemistry. It’s electric and HOT, and the connection follows them outside of the bedroom.

Dylan and Audrey do not change much from book one, but their is growth in their relationship, particularly Dylan’s viewpoint on love and relationships. In Sweet Lies, there was a heavy emphasis on these two getting down and dirty, and, yes, there were feelings under t

You need to have read Sweet Liar before diving into Sweet Fate.

Dylan and Audrey's story is all about fate, kismet, destiny - whatever you like to call it.

It took me a minute to remember how the first book ended, however once I remembered where I was at, it was a goer!

I didn't think I could like a book more than I did Sweet Liar, however Sweet Fate took things to a whole new level.

I was hooked on the story, just as Audrey and Dylan were hooked on each other. I cou

I was very excited to finally get to read the final book in this duet. I was a bit disappointed right off the bat because it seemed to be slow moving.

I felt like Dylan being the “older” man and all, he would have had it a little more together. He was a bit of a “Debbie Downer” for more than half the book. Audrey on the other hand really seemed to have it together and was beyond her age in maturity which I found to be a real bonus whi

Sweet Fate was one of my most anticipated read this month after the way Sweet Liar ended.
I was wondering if Dylan Locke would finally let his walls crumble or if he’ll fight like a lion against his feelings. I wanted to see how kismet was going to interfere in both our characters’ lifes.

Well I wasn’t disappointed with how Dylan struggles during all the book. The resistance was STRONG on his part; maybe too much but it fits his characters like a glove. Brooding, reluctant in giving any chance t

Some men need to learn their lessons of the heart in the most difficult ways possible. Exhibit A: Dylan Locke, who really thinks he is impervious to love in general and Audrey Lind specifically.

Dylan thinks he’s too old and too burned to open himself up. His first marriage ended in divorce, rendering him (he believes) emotionally incapable of forever love. It doesn’t last, you only get hurt, so why bother?

Enter Audrey, whose youthful essence and vibrancy throws him off his steady path. When last

Oh Lordy this was exactly what I needed and wanted. I’ve been waiting and wanting and Laurelin Paige delivered in spectacular fashion. Dylan and Audrey are my new favorite couple from this series. I will always love Donovan Kincaid with my whole heart, but this couple was so much fun!

Dylan tried so hard to fight it, but Audrey vibrant and vivacious personality proved too much for him. She’s one of my favorite characters ever! So much freaking fun!!

This is the 2nd book in this duet and i would highly recommend reading the first book Sweet Liar.
I LOVE Dylan and Audrey's story!! love it!!
What did i love? Everything!!
Having Hooked up with Audrey a few months previously, and not being able to shake her from his mind, things take an unexpected turn when he finds that she's now living in London and right on his doorstep.
Dylan is the older man, rich, successful, but jaded with life and love. He's like little debbie downer when it comes to romance

What a Fabulous ending to this Dirty Sweet Duet!!! Dylan and Audrey's story will have you falling in love with their characters. Dylan, a man who fights his attraction to a woman that turns his world upside down, and Audrey, a young woman who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to pursue it. Laurelin Paige has written another steamy duet that I could not put down.

Sweet Fate is the conclusion of Audrey and Dylan love story. Audrey is a younger sister of Dylan’s subordinate. She is all rose, sunshine, and romance something that Dylan is not. Dylan is worn-out completely done with commitment and marriage. What Dylan can offer Audrey is a few lessons between the sheets. After one incredible hot night, they parted way. Dylan went back to England. In the meantime, Audrey finished school and she is ready for her quest to find happily ever aft

ARC received in exchange for an honest review

Ever since I did I shed reading the first book in this series I’ve been desperate for the second book, this book. I absolutely adored Dylan and Audrey.

Their story started in New York in the first book Sweet Liar and continues in Sweet Fate which is set in London. The amount of passion between them both is insane but the age gap is a huge road block for Dylan to get over, he’s so hung up on the gap he can’t let himself have

What a tremendously happy ending for Dylan and Audrey. I LOVED that this was all from Dylan’s POV. He was most reluctant when it came to his affection and chemistry with Audrey and seeing him go through all those fears of potential heartbreak was quite endearing.

He was so hung up on their age gap, and used his past hurts as solid reasons for not pursuing more while also coming to terms that Audrey was the one person to bring color back into his life. Her youth and exuberance for living was some

Laurelin Paige never stops mesmerizing and surprising me. She stuns me in a different way with every new book. No two stories are same by her yet they are all alike in a way because they are mindblowing greatness. Sweet Fate was no exception. Dylan Locke. One name. Multiple talents. More layers than I can count. And another perfect alpha man created by Laurelin Paige. If I loved him in Sweet Liar, I love him even more in this book. If that is possible.

This conclusion of Dylan and Audrey’s story was so good. I love Dylan, he’s sweet in his own way and even though he was reluctant to admit it, he loved her from the beginning. Audrey is such a vibrant person and brought out the best in him. I loved this book!

Audrey is mine. I Flove her. I want to write her love poems and sing her love songs. I want to ride on the London Eye with her and skip through the daffodils in St James’ park. Maybe even watch something raunchy together whilst eating ice-cream. She’s bloody ace. Laurelin created a gorgeous character. Sweet, funny and a little bit naughty.

Dylan is a goner! There is no way at all he could resist her pouty little face. She tortures him in all kind of ways. He is more wound up than a shop full of

Sweet Fate is the conclusion to the Dirty Sweet series. Dylan has close off his heart to anymore possibilities of love until he meets Audrey. He still holds back. Audrey believes in the romantic happily ever after love. Sweet Fate is a sweet and sexy story. Told in Dylan’s POV, it’s fun to know what he is thinking. Love it!

“That’s a lot of pressure you’re putting on the universe, to have things happen on your timeline, in your way. It doesn’t give fate a chance to work the perfect ending you’re waiting for. I think this is a case for that old adage—if you love something, set it free. If you believe that fate will bring you the guy you belong with, then stop trying to force it. Stop trying to predict it. Stop trying to rush it along. Let the idea of falling in love go. It will come back to you when the time is right.” 0 likes
