About TWIST OF FATE:
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jill Shalvis comes a new story in her Heartbreaker Bay series… When the one you want … Daisy doesn’t believe love is ever-lasting, so it’s ironic as hell that she parlayed a business degree into a wedding planning business. More ironic still is her latest job bringing her back into contact with the man who’d taught her that love can’t last. Is the one you can’t have… To say Diego has been taught the hard way to bury emotions is an understatement. But when he’s called home to help the brother he hasn’t seen or spoken to in years, that’s one thing. It’s another entirely to also come face to face with the first woman he ever loved. First and only… Can love conquer all? Daisy’s learned to depend only on herself, and Diego is and always has been an island of one. And yet when they’re together, even when they’re bickering, still wary and haunted by memories of what was … it’s magic. The question is, how to find their way back to each other…? **Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

If you follow my book reviews, you probably know by now that Jill Shalvis is one of my favorite writers, especially the entries in her Heartbreaker Bay series. So, I was looking forward to this second chance novella, hoping to see sparks fly between Diego and Daisy. That didn’t happen nor was Shalvis’ trademark humor in place.
Frankly, it felt as if Twist of Fate could have been written by any romance writer. The deterrent to the couple getting together was mistrust and even 10 years later over-reactions. Usually Shalvis’ characters are more rational than this. And, for something so short, there was an awful lot of repetition.
If you’re new to Jill Shavlis, I’d recommend you start with one of the first novels in the Heartbreaker Bay series. I know fans of the series won’t want to miss this one even with its issues.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
