T. Kennington and C. Roth have created a suspense story featuring Caden’s post-traumatic stress disorder in Karma (Karma and Fate Duet Book 1). Caden James was riddled with guilt. Caden was living with his younger brother Declan in Panama when he purchased his childhood home in Los Angeles. Declan follows his brother to LA, where they continued to run a successful classic car shop. Micah and Rowan, their neighbors, show up to drop off a package the mailman delivered. The women, along with Micah’s younger sister Laini and close friend Lincoln, have been on the run from a violent past in Chicago. Micah invites them to XS Karma. The nightclub visit is highly successful, and the women are happy to settle down without having to look over their shoulders. However, they learn that their past intends to follow them.
From the start of the story, T. Kennington and C. Roth built suspense. Caden is so downcast that he spends his time drinking himself into oblivion. He even allows himself to get jumped and doesn’t fight back, despite his military training. I liked the way Declan remained patient throughout the entire turmoil Micah put herself through. Rowan and Lincoln are more stable than Micah. I agreed with Lincoln’s insistence that Laini should be told what they were running away from. Micah never told her the truth about why they moved so frequently and it caused tension. The end of the story left me on edge. I have to know what is going to happen in the next book! The novel is full of suspense with a vivid depiction of the emotional state of every character. The transitions between each person’s point of view were smooth and the timeline of events was easy to follow. I recommend Karma to readers who enjoy a romantic story full of danger and realistic inner turmoil.
