Peace and Pain.
Solace and suffering.
Opposites attract like magnets. They went hand in hand; just like we did.

The pain of the past encompassed my soul. It was on a path to destroy me—that was if I didn’t do it myself first.

I was drowning in the depths of my sorrow, trying to push through each day to get to the next. And then he turned up.

Five forbidden stars for Aria and Cade ❤💙!!!

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

"Fallen Duet" took my heart.

"Free Fall" and "Down Fall" are some of my favorite books this year.

#LOLA&BRODY<3

After reading the first two books from "Easton Family Saga", I knew that Abigail's next book will be good.

But, I was so wrong because she truly surprised me with "Defy Fate" and this book was more than good.

Having read the Fallen Duet, I thought I knew what I was getting into with this book. My predictions were it would be angsty, a bit taboo, and slowly reveal all as I travel down its telling.

Guess What? I was right but still, OH SO WRONG. I want to cry and when I say cry, I mean heart wrenching sobs that are filled with heartache but also a fury like no other. I am past PO’d at the injustices against Aria. Eek! The people around her have failed her so, even if it was not done maliciously. Yep ma

So I thought I had an idea of how Cade and Aria’s story might go, since I knew them from Lola and Brody’s duet. My every idea was oh so very incorrect. Forbidden to love, they can’t help falling for each other. Forbidden to be together, Aria falls apart. Her mother doesn’t want to listen or remember, her soon-to-be stepdad doesn’t understand, and the one person who DOES get it seemingly threw her away. Cade tries to stay strong, but will he be able to when everything comes crashing down on them ...more

Well this book was depressing and maddening and made me want book two like right now. I wasn’t sure what I was getting into with this book and I love that. I thought it might be sad and deal with mainly the age difference between Cade and Aria but it was so much more. This book might be a trigger for some but it must be read. You might just find a bit of yourself in Aria. I know I did. Her epic breakdown was reminisc

Wow! I had a feeling this book was going to be amazing learning what happened to Cade the young boy we learned to love in Brody and Lola’s story, but my heart was not truly ready..
This story will suck you in and I promise you will feel every emotion Aira goes through in this story.

Aria was 8 when Cade left for college they’ve always been close, we’ll ever since that night(you will have to read down fall to find out what happened..no spoilers here) and now he’s back and she not

Defy Fate is the first book in a new duet by Abigail Davies. Defy Fate is about Cade and Aria and is the second duet in the Easton Family saga (the first duet was about Brody (Cade's father) and Lola). We are a couple years down the road since the end of Down Fall. Cade is 25 and is going to teach and coach at his old high school. Aria just started senior year. Cade is her old crush and now he is her new teacher and coach.

The beginning of their story is amazing. As always the writing

Oh good heavens above, Abigail you have just shredded me poor wee heart!!!!

After reading the Fallen Duet (loved it!!) I can mind writing to Abigail and saying that Cade is defo his dad's son, he's going to be a heartbreaker, that wee dude was deep and I couldn't wait to read his story - well, this is his story!...And Arias! 😘
And a deep story it is! I'm not going to say much about the actual storyline because I can't abide spoilers! What I will say is, this story is going to wrap itself ar

I loved every single page of this book. Aria has so many demons she’s fighting and nobody seems to notice. That whole aspect of her character hit so close to home. Cade was great and I feel like book 2 is going to be when we are going to find out more of his internal struggles. I’m really looking forward to book 2 and being able to get absorbed into this world that Abigail created. I love how these books pull you in so much that you can feel what these characters feel. Those are my favorite book ...more

This book is EVERYTHING.
I just finished it about an hour ago, and I am still stewing over my thoughts of what just happened.
Aria & Cade's story is so special, so heartwrenching, and I swear I felt every single emotion that Aria did throughout this entire story. I haven't connected to a book this emotionally in a while.

We first meet Cade and Aria in the fallen duet. Their interactions in the fallen duet led me to really hope that Abigail would do a story of these two characters i

Abigail Davies has reached a level that has her as #QueenHeartBreaker #QueenOfTheAngstyTaboo

Aria and Cade are going to destroy your heart, in a good way. Gahhh....the angst!! The ANGST is on a different level with this story.

Aria and Cade’s story will have you on the edge of the couch. You will be flipping through the pages trying to figure out what’s going to happen. You will FEEL all the FEELS AND your heart is going to bust from the angst.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
WOW just WOW this book is outstanding.
If you've read the Fallen Duet then you'll know the characters in this book, but it's moved on 10 years.
The last time Cade saw Aria was when she was 8 years old, well now she's a young sevetenn year old woman and he is her teacher.
Although in his time away a lot has happened to her, secrets abound as he has his own.
This book had my emotions all over the place, happy, crying, angry and shocked. So

Gah i need the next book now!
We first met these characters in the Fallen duet by Abigail Davies but they were background characters and much younger but now they get their own story in this Fated duet and i couldn't be happier.
You don't need to have read the other duet first but i would highly recommend you read it so you know who every one is and enjoy the journey as we have.
The author knows how to pull you in to a story and give you so many feelings. Not only do we get to see people we met

Every time I read one of Abigail Davies books
I never know what to expect.
Defy fate is a fated duet saga its her best yet.

Teacher/student relationship check
Age cap check.
Cade is the new teacher at the school.
Asia is a student at the same school but they also have known each other for years.
I'm not going to say anymore dont want to spoil it.
Cant wait for the next one.
Thanks for this great book.
I highly recommend this book.

This was my first book from Abigail Davies and wow was this an incredible story!!

Aria is our heroine who is 17, but has such a dark past that I just want to hug and squeeze her. We also meet Cade who shows up after a few years with secrets of his own. He's sweet but a bit naive and it gets him in a bit of trouble.

Overall, this story was pretty well written, lots of emotion flowing from Aria, and man was I mad when the pages stopped turning lol. I

This is a lovely angst filled book, and I’m so glad I didn’t make a promise not to hate Abigail Davies when I was finished. Fuck you bitch! 😭😭😭 where’s the rest! I need it! Sweet baby Jesus this book took me through fucking hell, but I can’t wait for more Cade and Aria. I’m just gonna go cry in the corner now 😭😭 For real. It’s raw and real, and so damn brilliantly written.
