Fate Series by Emersyn Vallis blog tour with review and giveaway

Series: Fate Series 
Author: Emersyn Vallis
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: Available Now

When I chose to leave home I knew what I was giving up. I knew I was walking away from life as I knew it and the plans that we had made. We…us…him and I… 
It’s funny to think of him in a different light…or life. 
That’s what it feels like, a lifetime ago. 
But I’m a different person now. I have rules and goals. And if it wasn’t for my parents' vow renewal I would have successfully evaded him for the rest of my life. This is not by choice, I can tell you that. 
I just need to focus and remember the key to this weekend is avoidance…and alcohol. But if anyone can pull that off it’s me, 
Sidney Chandler, queen of avoiding anything that will make me feel. 
It’s just one weekend, right? 
One very long weekend with my family…friends…my sisters and me…together, and our nemeses, the McAllister triplets. 
What could possibly go wrong? 
They say you never forget your first love, now just imagine how hard it is to forget your only. 
This is going to suck.

My Review:
4.5 stars for Emersyn Vallis's debut novel. I LOVED it!!!!! I can not remember the last time a book had me laughing so hard! I had a hard time getting into the story because the beginning was a little slow for me but once the ball started rolling I couldn't put the book down.

The story centers around Sydney Chandler and her first love Simon McAllister. At graduation Simon committed the ultimate betrayal and left Sydney brokenhearted. It was then that she decided she was going to change the path of her life and move to New York. The two ran into each other a few times over the last few years but Sydney always acted like she hated Simon. But when Sydney's parents renew their wedding vows and Sydney and Simon are forced to spend some time together will she be able to keep that wall up?

Adjournment has a cast a characters that will keep you laughing your butt off!!! You just can't help but fall in love with all of them. The witty banter is hilarious and the various scenarios that the characters find themselves caught up in will having you rolling! You can't turn the pages fast enough to see what these guys will come up with next. It is pranks galore!! The chemistry between Simon and Sydney just jumps off the page at you. These two are fire when they get started.

I really enjoyed this book and I think it is amazing for a debut novel. I can not wait to see what the author has in store for book 2, which is expected to release in September! Bravo Ms. Vallis

We all have choices in life… paths to take… roads  to follow…. It’s on those journeys that fate finds us and takes us where we need to be… Without a second glance we can be taken away from things we know… "people we love" and given a new life... 

One that can change us… save us… 

What would you do if fate dropped you at a crossroads? Would you go back? Or would you run like hell the other way?

For years my life was in a state of Adjournment… 
Fate had constructed a plan to push me away… to save me…
There was a danger I never knew existed, one I had never sensed. 
My family positioned themselves around me. 
Like Hanging Pawns, they shielded me from it and I lived blissfully unaware… until now.
Now, I know there are rules to this game...
Sacrifices to be made in order to get to End Game.
What would I Sacrifice for one more moment... one last look? Touch? Kiss? 
The answer is simple… 

My Review:
5 stars
Sacrifice is book 3 in The Fate series. You must read Adjournment (book 1) and Hanging Pawns (book2) to be able to follow whats going on in this book. This story is focused on Simon and Sidney but all of the characters are present in this book as well. With that being said, these books are a must read!

Simon and Sidney's story is amazing. I was hooked from the very first chapter. The first two books left us with so many questions. While most of them were answered in this book, naturally you are left with even more questions by the end. And lets talk about the end....that cliffhanger. I had to double check to make sure i didn't crack the screen on my kindle when i sent it flying across the room. I tried to turn the page and to my dismay, there were no more pages to turn. How could you do that to us, Mrs Vallis???????

The character development is on point and Mrs Vallis did a phenomenal job with this series. Sidney is such a loving and selfless character. Simon wasn't my favorite hero but he really grew on me with this book and I love him now. You really see how much Simon cares for her, and learn that after all of these years, she was never far from his heart or mind. The two have grown so much, both as individuals and as a couple. The witty and sarcastic dialogue and the scheming that goes on with this group of friends will have you laughing so hard you cry. If that isn't enough to keep you turning the pages faster than you'd like, the suspense and romance will surely do it for you.

I fully enjoyed reading this series and luckily for me, End Game is available now so i will be diving into ASAP. I cannot recommend this series enough. Mrs Vallis has created a wonderful fictional world to get lost in. This is one series you do not want to pass up!

Once upon time, there were two girls living their lives completely unaware of one another and the dangerous game they had been placed in… 
Until Fate found them… 
Fate saved them, made them stronger & with time, Fate brought them together to become friends rather than enemies… 
Until a cruel Queen made her move, threatened the Knight, 
And an innocent Pawn was sacrificed… 
Now the game is in our hands… 
Fate might have set us up for this… but we control the moves now… 
And we have our own plan.

End Game

Emersyn Vallis is a first time author with Adjournment being the first book in the Fated Series. Currently residing on the east coast with her husband and three children she is typically mistaken for being quiet and reserved her friends often describe her as a spastic spider monkey and always the first to be there with her quick wit to pull you back up when you’re feeling down. After reading as a hobby for most of her life it wasn’t until she had discovered R. L. Mathewson’s ‘Neighbor from Hell Series’ and Tara Sivec’s ‘Playing with Fire Series’ that she came up with the idea to fuse comedy and suspense together and her passion for writing was born.
