Finding Fate is the first entry in the Tied by Fate Series by Keelan Storm, a coming-of-age, young adult romance with unforgettable characters. Tucker Patterson has lived all his life in the beachside community where he’s developed a relationship with Isabel “Izzy” Dearly. He’s never had more than a friendly consideration for Isabel until one day before their senior year he watches her at the ocean shore. Deep inside, he knows he desires her. But everything changes when rich kid Wesley Hernandez moves into their community and goes after Isabel. He makes a strong impression on Izzy, the introverted girl next door that Tucker has known all his life. But something is wrong and Tucker is determined to show Izzy what it is. Can he win her heart and strengthen the bonds they’ve had for many years?
This novel caught my attention from the get-go and never let it slip for a single moment. Keelan Storm’s characters come alive in the pages and I loved how the author explores the emotions of the characters. The setting is a beach community that is beautifully described and the images play in the reader’s mind like those of a place they have known. The emotional conflict is very strong and I loved how the advent of Wesley changes everything, even the way Tucker looks at Izzy. Finding Fate is cinematic, written in gorgeous prose, and in a voice that grabs the reader and stays with them. It is an exciting and delightful read and I can’t wait for the next book in the series.
