The man she should want, or the man she craves…
Fashion designer Ridley Ethridge thinks she's found the perfect, stable sort of guy in her childhood friend Will Reaver. With seduction in her sights, she arranges to rock Will's world at an exclusive club that caters to those with adventurous and erotic appetites. What happens next is both intense and satisfying—until Ridley's blindfold comes off to reveal Will's twin brother. The same twin who broke her heart eight years ago.
Former soldier Garrett Reaver hasn't ever gotten Ridley out of his system. And now that she's before him in all her submissive glory? He'll be damned before he lets someone else have her, especially his brother. Because Garrett and Ridley have some seriously unfinished business to take care of, and it starts now. And this time, he'll show Ridley how exquisite a relationship with him could be…if their past doesn't catch up to them first.
After falling in love with Tessa Bailey’s Serve series books, Served by Fate and Exposed by Fate, I was excited to learn Katee Roberts was writing books in the series. I’ve enjoyed Katee’s books in the past and I couldn’t wait to see the Serve world through her eyes. Mistaken by Fate was full of sexy bondage fun and I enjoyed it immensely.
I love a good second chance romance story and Mistaken by Fate was that, with a heaping helping of BDSM goodness added in for good measure. Ridley’s an up-and-coming fashion designer who is looking for more passion in her life (and her bedroom). Intrigued by the club Serve, she decides to join and seduce her friend, Will. The night of their first “date,” she has one of the most satisfying experiences of her life, but when it’s all said and done it wasn’t Will, but his twin brother – and the man who broke her heart – Garrett who she gave herself over to.
The history between Ridley and Garrett was rocky, but the chemistry they shared was intense. The sexual tension leapt off the pages and when they gave in to their desires and continued on with Ridley’s education, it was smokin’ hot. I don’t read a lot of BDSM books and I found this one a little more adventurous than the first two in the Serve series, but that’s not a bad thing. Garrett gave good dirty talk and I’m a big fan of that in a Brazen book boyfriend.
As much as I enjoyed the fun, dirty times, my favorite part of this book was the journey that Ridley and Garrett took back to each other. I liked watching them overcome their past drama and submit to what was in front of them now. It was obvious they still shared a connection and I was definitely rooting for them. The next book, Betting on Fate, is Will’s book and I can’t wait for it. Will’s tastes run a little darker and I’m ready for a little education of my own.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
