Andrew
I had it all.
The easy, quiet life.
Money that made itself and a family I saw when I wanted.
I never expected that one night would change all of that…

Jess
I wasn’t looking for love, but when he stumbled through that doorway I knew there was something special about him.
A spark. A connection. Something that not even I could deny…

Will fate finally allow them their happy ev

Well... god damn, Heather, this is one steamy ride!

Starting off hot and heavy, it gives us an insight into just how sexy this book is.
I absolutely loved being thrust into the moment with these two.
The back and forth, the push and pull, and the overwhelming sexual tension that exudes from the main characters.
GAH! I loved all of it!

This is a fantastic start to the Fated books. BRAVO!

Five glorious stars for Within Reach and it’s cheeky alpha 😏

3.5 STARS
The story of Andrew and Jess begins with an instant attraction and what was supposed to be a one-night stand. Things get complicated when they cannot stay away from each other. There is a ton of heat in this book, starting very early on. Andrew is a dominant alpha male in the bedroom and really in life. Underneath, he does have some vulnerabilities that he mostly hides. It was good to see him open his feelings to Jessica. Jessica is a tough woman who can keep up with Andrew. I love her

J'ai découvert un peu la série "Fated" par hasard parce que la novella 0.5 "Home" se situait à Noël et comme j'avais bien aimé, quand j'avais vu que le tome 1 sortait, en lisant le résumé, je me suis laissée convaincre... mais j'avoue avoir été surprise ! Après un début difficile où j'ai failli laisser tomber (pas mon truc les mecs dominants) je me suis prise au jeu et ensuite, je l'ai lu dans la journée : cette fois, nous découvrons l'histoire d'une des amies de l'héroïne précédente (Cassidy) J ...more

I really enjoyed Andrew and Jess's story!

Andrew was this alpha-male who had to have what he wanted and wasn't shy about it. Despite his macho persona, there was some softness to him. I love the relationship he has with his sister and how his upbringing doesn't affect that. He is not spoilt and know what is hard-work. His affection to Jess is amazing. He treated her like a princess.

Jess - boy, oh boy, I just loved her!! She is this firecracker of a woman. Despite that, however, there is this ve

Andrew isn't about relationships while Jess isn't looking for one but she's not ruling one out either. The moment they met the sparks were flying so they hooked up but it was only supposed to be one night, however the chemistry is so potent that the best laid plans. That undeniable chemistry makes it impossible to stay away from each other that does make things complicated. I'm not going to lie, these two are hot as hell together, however, Andrew made it impossible to like him from time to time ...more

Jess and Andrew, oh wow!!!
We can also perceive their attraction as readers.
Jess goes to celebrate New Year's Eve in her favorite Bar/club, and it is there that she meets or instead sees Andrew.
Something immediately clicks between them, so much so that at the stroke of midnight, the two kisses. And what a kiss! Powerful enough not only to set Jess on fire, but it also stirs Andrew.
The two spend a night of pure lust, passion, and sex. Andrew is passionate and dominated, and to Jess attracts even

Holy lemonade on a hot summer's day!!

This is the first in the series but I am going to suggest reading the prequel - The only reason I make that suggestion is that this is a fast-paced story that starts with Andrew dominating behind the scenes (if you get my drift) and it continues this fever pitch throughout the storyline. In the prequel, you meet some of the characters and get an idea of who(?) they are - which I believe might assist greatly in preventing the reader from attempting to erase ce

This is the 1st in a new series and what a journey Andrew and Jess are on. Andrew is a dominating alpha, while Jess lives her life to the fullest, and when these two meets in a bar and end up having a 1-night stand. There is an instant connection between them, and the push and pull between them is entertaining, and Andrew does a great job in hiding his vulnerability. Jess is the light to his darkness. This is a well written flawless read which is raw, gritty, intense, and with twists, family dyn ...more

Wow, I thought the novella was amazing. This one is my favourite, it is hot and steamy and very addictive with a great story line behind it. Heather definitely has a way with words.

Andrew and Jessica are both certainly from different backgrounds, and Andrew's is very prominent in this book but is good to read. I love the Alpha dominant male and the confident sassy female.

I don't want to give all of the story away because it is better to experience first hand. Can one night become more or will it

Is Andrew a bit cocky ? , hell yes he is , but do I love him ?, omg yes I do .
Jess is a brilliant character, she lives life to the full , and she loves every second of it .

Neither Andrew , or Jess , are looking for a relationship, but neither can deny the pull they have to each other .

Andrews life changes when he is brought into the family business, a business he never wanted to go into .
Jess is his light , in a life that just seems dark around him at the moment, but will his darkness extinguish

Jess and Andrew had chemistry but neither wanted a commitment. Their hearts had other plans. Jess let her past almost keep her from giving into her heart. I loved how she trusted Andrew when circumstances had her questioning their relationship. Andrew was thrown into a situation he never planned on, but I enjoyed how he turned things around for a more positive outlook. With all the danger and publicity surrounding them, this couple proved they were stronger together.

I received a copy of this sto

Ok

This is one of the hardest reviews I've had to write recently. I was so looking forward to this book and while I enjoyed it i just found something missing for me to completely click with the story. That said I would still recommend to others as this is just my opinion
