Review: Fated by Carly Phillips

New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips presents a never-before-published novella set in a quaint upstate New York town—where Serendipity’s finest show exactly what they’re made of…

Kate Andrews is the original rebound girl. But she has had enough and has vowed to never be someone’s second choice again. Unfortunately, her undeniably intense desire for Nick Mancini is testing her best laid plans because Kate has carried a torch for Nick since high school—but she’s always been permanently in the friend zone.

Lately, Nick has definitely noticed Kate. Unfortunately he can't get her to take him seriously. He knows he's made some stupid moves in the past but he's determined to get Kate to act on their obvious and mutual attraction. However Kate's stubborn and she's been hurt before, which means Nick will have to pull out all the stops in order to convince her he's not the same boy she used to know, and she's not second best…

The backstory for Kate and Nick was revealed in Serendipity, and I think I would have preferred to have this novella released around the same time period.  While Fated was a short, quick read, it was nice to see Kate get her happily-ever-after with the man she's been in love with for such a very long time.    
(A very special thank you to Berkley Books, Penguin, and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of Fated.)
