When Micah Murphy ran off to Los Angeles, she thought she had finally rid herself of her past and the Los Lobos gang from Chicago. If only she had known how wrong she was. The gang had gone ahead to kill her parents in Florida. As if this was not enough, they had tracked Micah down in Los Angeles and killed her sister Laini. Micah had also brought along her best friend Rowan in a bid to protect her from Michael Infante, Rowan’s brother, a dangerous psychopath and criminal back in Chicago. With both Michael Infante and Los Lobos ruthlessly coming after her and the people she loves, what will happen to Micah? Get yourself T. Kennington and C. Roth’s Fate: Karma and Fate Duet to know how it all goes down.

If you are looking for a romance novel laced with hot, steamy romantic escapades, a tale of sex, love, guns, sleuths, crime, blackmail, loyalty, vengeance, and secrets, among other things, T. Kennington and C. Roth’s Fate is just what you should be looking for. Kennington and Roth forge an intriguing plot for a gripping read. They kept me on edge with suspense and thrills. They breathe life into the scenes with vivid depictions. I felt like I was right there beside every character, helplessly watching their every move. Kennington and Roth depict the characters’ emotions in a sensational way. This coupled with bringing out the wonderfully developed cast’s traits made it easy for me to connect and empathize with the characters. The trauma both Micah and Rowan went through in their pasts left me so heartbroken. Although Fate is the second installment in the Karma and Fate Duet series, it is a stand-alone book. I loved it and I’m looking forward to reading more installments in the series.

Fate is the second book in the Karma and Fate Duet series by T. Kennington and C. Roth. Rowan De Luca has left behind her years of abuse at the hands of her brother, Michael Infante, and carved a good life for herself as a club owner in Los Angeles alongside her friend Micah Murphy. She also found a kind-hearted man in Caden James. But the past rears its ugly head when Michael returns, determined to steal his favorite bird. Meanwhile, Murphy's sister Laini is murdered in her home, triggering her own fears of JC Sandoval, leader of the Los Logos gang in Chicago, who comes back seeking vengeance. When an attack by Michael leaves Rowan in a coma and Caden missing, can Murphy and her lover Declan James find a way to protect their family?

A delicious blend of romance, suspense, and thrills makes Fate an absorbing read you can't get enough of. Authors T. Kennington and C. Roth weave a captivating tale of love, murder, and revenge that keeps you engaged from the first page until the last. The characters have fully fleshed-out backstories that bring depth to their personalities and add inner conflict and turmoil to their arcs, which makes them thoroughly compelling to read. Due to their likable personas, it is very easy to root for Rowan, Murphy, and the James brothers. Both the two main romantic relationships feel genuine, and every scene between the lovers is a joy to read. Overall, a great novel for readers who love romantic thrillers.

In Fate: Karma and Fate Duet Book 2 by T. Kennington and C. Roth, Michael Infante, Rowan’s brother, appeared in the club during Laini’s memorial party. He evades her but Rowan relays to Micah that he had been there. DeClan tries to get Micah to tell him what happened in Chicago after Lincoln had to tell the police some of their history. Rowan and Caden announce they are going to leave for a romantic vacation. Micah has a nightmare about JC while she was asleep with DeClan. Detective Kashansky speaks to Micah at the club, confirming JC and Javiar are in Los Angeles. When DeClan and Micah leave the club, JC and Javiar are pointing guns at them. Meanwhile, Rowan and Caden professed they were in love with each other. On their way home, Michael runs them off the road. The car flips and Rowan’s seat belt breaks. Caden couldn’t find her pulse. Then his world goes black.

Kennington and Roth exceeded my expectations in this sequel. Just when I thought the threat from JC and Michael was imminent, the presence of Detective Kashansky increased tension. Micah’s emotional overload makes her lash out at DeClan. He has the patience of a saint to put up with her. I felt Rowan had managed life a lot better than Micah because she sought therapy. Micah bottled everything up and was quick to negatively judge people. The truth about JC’s obsession with tracking her down was enlightening, and I felt sorry for him. Despite being a gang leader, he had a heart. He had several opportunities to kill her and Rowan. Michael is the epitome of human scum. The transitioning perspectives were clear and it is easy to connect with every person. The end of the story was written well, leaving no questions in my mind. It even went beyond what I could imagine. Fate: Karma and Fate Duet Book 2 will appeal to anyone who enjoys stories where the lines of justice are blurred and they have read the first book.
