How can Ava Starr's dream come true be Dax Miller's worst nightmare?
Ava's mother always told her to be careful what she wished for. From the moment Ava woke up on Lamarai Island, she wanted nothing more than to find Preston. But now that she has, her heart is caught in a fierce game of tug-of-war. In a place where danger lurks around every tree, she must quickly figure out who she can trust, and who is out to destroy her dream of a happy ever after.
Dax's plan to capture Ava's heart was all falling into place. That is, until Ava's past showed up on the island in the form of a tall, dark, and handsome pilot named Preston, leaving Dax to wonder if he's inherited Ava's wicked luck. Preston is determined to pick up his relationship with Ava where they left off before a plane crash separated them, but Dax will stop at nothing to fight for the girl of his dreams and discover the truth behind the mysterious pilot.
But Dax isn't the only one troubled by the surprise appearance of Preston and his flight crew. The new visitors to the island have caused Dax's stepsister, Roxy, to develop a bad case of sibling rivalry, as well as managed to attract the unwanted attention of a vicious tribe of cannibals. Now Dax must figure out a way to keep his new tribe of misfits safe, while Ava is left to make the most important decision of her life. Will they succeed, or will fate decide for them?
Wicked Fate is the heart-pounding sequel to Wicked Luck, a new adult adventure romance series
I don't know where to start with this book because it was so fantastic. Shannon L. Maynard really knows how to draw a reader into the story by answering questions from the previous book, but she also knows how to keep us wanting more by leaving us with more questions at the end of this book. There was heartbreak, and plenty of drama, but we knew from the previous book that drama was basically a given.
Preston is not one of my favorite characters. It's very hard for me to switch my mentality about a character once my mind is made up. I tried to though, for him, because he is sweet and charming. But at the end of the day, he is not high on my list of favorite characters. Neither is Ava, if I'm being completely honest. She is learning how to stick up for herself, but at times I feel like she doesn't know her own mind and feelings. Even though she did figure that out by the end, by then it almost doesn't even matter because of the way things in the story played out.
The end of the book is certainly another cliffhanger, and I didn't expect anything less than that. I look forward to reading the third book in this series whenever it becomes available. I give Wicked Fate 4/5 Platypires.
