Capturing Fate by Abbie Roads

This is the first book by Roads that I’ve read and I’ve got to say what a great book. It keeps you interested and keeps you turning the pages. Roads knows what she’s doing. Fantastic read!

Daughter is going in for an interview and let’s just say it’s Sunday. In a prison. Only one thing comes from a Prison visit. Adam. Mureder. The quote I chose for Daughter is: “I won’t kill for you. I’m nothing like you.”

Dolan is an Undercover FBI Agent who doesn’t like people. When he sees that something is up he follows. His following may not be a good thing but it does lead him to meeting Daughter. Can he save her? The quote I chose for Dolan is: “She sent these to my work email. We can trace them. We can find the IP address, then a physical address.”

Highly recommended for Romantic Suspense lovers.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Daughter Dawson is a clinical psychologist with her own practice and a loving family backing up her every decision, but that all changes when she goes for a job interview at a prison where she is trapped in a room with someone and a secret is revealed that she cannot believe and then she is sworn to secrecy and is threatened with severe repercussions if it is revealed. Dolan Watts is an FBI agent with a haunted past, he has grown up in foster care feeling that he can only rely on himself and that despite his independence, he is lacking and that he has to go everything alone, this lands him in trouble one day when he is working undercover and breaks his cover to apprehend a criminal who is escaping, but nobody is willing to believe him when he tries to explain what he has just witnessed and the fact that he isn’t a team player or someone who plays by the rules ends up with him having to see a psychologist. What neither Daughter or Dolan expect is that they will end up as therapist and client after what each of them know but cannot tell the other, however, the one thing that they can’t avoid or deny is the instant attraction which they feel, but cannot act on due to professional boundaries, but they agree that in time, maybe they can acknowledge their feelings after some time has passed.

Two years to the day later and Daughter is trying to decide whether to make the phone call she desperately wants to, but she is running scenarios through her head of what might have happened in the intervening years and hesitates, in the end, she decides to call her mother up for some advice, but when she doesn’t get an answer she goes to their house, however when she gets there, her worst nightmares become reality but instead of calling 911, she calls Dolan and he immediately gets the address and high tails it over to see her. As Dolan supports her over the next 24 hours as she has to relive her nightmare over and over again, she asks him to stay with her and one thing leads to another and they finally realise that everything they have both been waiting for is reciprocated by the other and as the whole truth comes out, fate intervenes and just as they are starting something meaningful, it is ripped apart.

Dolan then tries to figure out a way from the mess that has been orchestrated around him and as others are dragged into this mess, it is clear that there is someone manipulating them all like puppets and that there are more lies and secrets to unravel before the web can be broken open, but danger and conspiracies surround them, but can Daughter and Dolan figure out who is behind everything, how they are doing it and what the ultimate goal is, or will everyone they love be targeted? This crime thriller is a whirlwind of lies, deceit, ulterior motives and twists and turns which keep you hooked as the mystery increases with the danger and leaves you rushing to find out the conclusion as well.

This is my first book by Abbie Roads. I loved everything about this book. The story line is interesting in itself. There are two. One story line for Daughter Dawson and one for Dolan Watts. This story is so intertwined within every person and situation that happens. Detail oriented and emotional, I couldn’t put this down. The fathers of both Daught and Dolan are nightmares incarnate. This amazing book goes into detail on how to survive when all you have is a spark of hope in your soul. I absolutely recommend this book and Abbie Roads!

Capturing Fate is the highly anticipated second book in the Fatal Truth Series by Abbie Roads. This is a brilliant romantic suspense- with an edgy, psychological element that had me tied up in knots. It’s a gritty story that took me on quite the ride- with plenty of drama, surprising developments, danger, action, a hunt for a serial killer, mystery, and gripping suspense- which made for a wild ride.
I absolutely loved the first book- and have been eagerly awaiting the release of this second book- so to say I was thrilled when it finally arrived is an understatement. I put everything else I was reading aside- and dove in! I am happy to say that this is every bit as good as I had hoped it would be- and I devoured it in a matter of a couple of hours….. then turned around and read it again. And again, the author shows just how skilful a writer she is, in the way she is able to amp up the tension and suspense and keep it flowing the whole way through the story. She adds twists and surprising developments that had me guessing, right through to the end!
Highly recommended- especially if you like a gripping, twisty, psychological romantic suspense.

Thank you, Abbie Roads!

Capturing Fate (Fatal Truth, #2)Capturing Fate by Abbie Roads
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Daughter Dawson is a psychologist who knows very little about her past, being adopted when she was younger with the express rule that she keep the name Daughter, (which if you ask me is a really crappy name, but there you go, she’s stuck with it for the rest of her life) she is at a loss as to where she came from and who her parents are. Quite early on, however, the bombshell of all bombshells is dropped in Daughter’s lap and literally blows her world apart, her father happens to be a serial killer.
Dolan (I don’t know what it is with the D names but hey, just gotta roll with it) is an interesting character, dealing with a lot of dark and horrible crap in his past that has left him with some interesting coping mechanisms? I question because I assume that’s what they are. I won’t spoil it for all the readers out there – got to leave a little mystery and all that – but I thought the way that Roads wrote Dolan was really intriguing. Dolan works for the FBI and bodies have definitely been turning up, at least he is pretty sure that bodies are turning up, no one else around him seems as convinced. In light of this, its decided that maybe the best thing for him is to go seek some professional help for his apparent issue and that’s when Daughter and Dolan meet.
Obviously the first time they meet there is an instant connection and I’ve got to say that it kind of rankled me a little bit. The instant connection deal that is in most romance novels annoys me anyway, I get why it’s there and I know that other people enjoy it, but for me, it just feels daft and unearned. You can find someone attractive but the instant eye-meeting and being completely turned-on shenanigans that turns up quite a bit just doesn’t do it for me and in this book, I just felt that it really didn’t need it. Daughter and Dolan already have this really quite horrific things connecting them, drawing them together, and if felt that it was enough.
Still, I will say that this is an enjoyable read, I thought that the premise was really interesting and it did keep me hooked. Thought it was a compelling idea really, I mean how would you react if you found that a parent you had never known suddenly decided to turn up in your life and they were a serial killer. I think I’d find a nice little rock to hide under. For me the romance between Daught and Dolan was okay, but I felt like it took centre stage in the novel when it really didn’t need to, there were other elements that I wish Roads had focused on just a little bit more. Still, someone else who reads this may think the balance is just right and that the romance is needed. Tis just my opinion. I will say that, even with how I feel about the romance, it was well written, in fact, this whole book was well written. I didn’t actually realise till quite a way in that this was the second book in a series, I mean honestly, you really can’t tell, it does a grand job of standing alone. I may have to go back and read the first one though, just to see what I am missing out on. Would recommend this to romance and thriller lovers alike, this story has both in equal measure and will keep you on the edge of your seat.

Wow! Capturing Fate absolutely blew me away! This is my first novel by Abbie Roads, and will not be the last! Capturing Fate was full of intense action, true emotions, and I truly didn’t want to out it down!

Dolan Watts is an FBI agent and starts the story undercover. When he sees something he should never see in a million years and no one really believes his story, he has to venture on his own to find the truth.

Daughter is a psychologist. She has her own practice and meets a very intriguing man one day. That session literally changes her whole life.

This story was really amazing! The plot was intense and the story was so original. I loved the characters and the writing that made you feel everything the characters were feeling. I cannot wait to explore more from this author!

Capturing Fate by Abbie Roads. I love a book that keeps me guessing and on the edge of my seat. That exactly what I got when I opened this book. The storyline is engaging and well developed with characters that are just as importantly done well as the storyline. The characters are complex and engaging they bring the storyline to life and I like the adventure they took me on. I know for me it was over too quickly but only because I wasn’t ready to be done. It’s fast paced but not in a rushed way. I’m giving this story a five star review and highly recommend! Can’t wait for more from this author who always brings her A+ writing game.

Five Stars

Capturing Fate is a psychological thriller/suspense/action with a dash of paranormal and romance added in. Abbie Roads is one of my go to authors, and I’m so glad I read this fast paced thrill ride. The twistand turns had me on the edge of my seat, and the story had me up long into the early morning hours. I just couldn’t put it down and I have to say it was well worth the lost sleep.

When gruesome tragedy uncovers a serial killer’s twisted agenda, Daughter and Dolan must help one another if they hope to survive. Can they stop the body count from rising, or will they find their only purpose from the start was to be pawns? This is a standalone novel but to better understand Dolan, I recommend reading book 1 first. Abbie Roads is a wonderful author. She doesn’t disappoint the reader. Step into another wonderful world full of twists and turns. The best way to describe this series is combination of paranormal and suspense.

This is the kind of story I can get down with! Intense, fast-paced, and plenty of action as you are brought into Dolan and Daughters story. And while this this the second in the series, you don’t need to read the first one to understand this one. Dolan is an FBI agent and after Daughter meets him, she knows there is something between them. Circumstances prevent that at first and they endure a rough road. Their journey is an epic read!!!
