Review of Choices of Fate by S. Simone Chavous

Choices of Fate
by
S. Simone Chavous
 
On her own since the day she turned 
eighteen and left the group home
where she grew up, twenty-five year 
old Alexa Ryan has made comfortable 
life for herself. She has a great job, 
the perfect apartment, every material 
possession a girl her age could desire.
Unfortunately, she also has an unusual 
condition that has forced her
to keep everyone at a distance.
 
Ethan Kellar has spent his entire life 
running from destiny. When he
was just a boy, a powerful seer prophesied
 his role in events that would determine 
the outcome of the secret war his people 
had been fighting for centuries. A role 
he was determined not to accept,
leading him to avoid letting anyone 
get too close, until the night
Alexa fell into his arms.
 
Drawn to her in a way that he has never 
experienced, Ethan decides to take the 
ultimate risk by trusting Alexa and 
revealing to her all that he truly is. 
Thinking she is an ordinary woman, he 
believes that she could be his key to 
preventing the prophecy from being 
fulfilled and allowing him to live the life 
he has always wanted, one that he
chooses. Having been so consumed with 
the desire to determine the course of his 
own life he wants no less for Alexa and 
knows he must tell her everything, give her 
a choice. Before that happens they
surrender to the intense physical attraction 
between them and he realizes too late that 
in trying so hard to change his fate, he may
have set the events of the prophecy in motion.
 
In that moment, Ethan makes the most 
difficult decision of his life
and does the only thing he can to 
save Alexa. He walks away.
 
Consumed by grief, Alexa falls into a 
deep depression until she learns
that her brief encounter with love 
resulted in a child and somehow
finds the strength to put herself 
back together for the sake of her
baby Chloe.
 
Nearly two years after Ethan walked 
out Chloe develops an unexplained
illness that sends Alexa in search 
of anything that can help. Her
pursuit leads her back to Ethan and 
thrusts her into his dark and
mysterious world, unlocking the 
secrets of her past and revealing
threats to their future. Together, 
Alexa and Ethan fight to protect
Chloe and their love, but there is 
one battle Ethan fights alone as he
struggles to choose his own path and 
avoid the choices of fate.
 
This is a good read with a story & 
characters that keep you
turning pages until the very end. 
It's an amazing story full of
everything you need to keep a story 
interesting. I enjoyed it a lot.
This is the first book I've read by 
this author &I'm interested in reading more.
 
I rate this book 4 stars
