BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - The Fate Series by Emersyn Vallis

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.

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… 

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. 

4 out of 5 (Very Good)

Review for Hanging Pawns:

*I received a copy of this book from Enticing Journey in exchange for a fair and honest review*
This was a good book, but slightly confusing and hard to get into at the beginning, but I think part of that is it’s been quite a while since I read the first book.  The further you read the more the characters developed and were revealed.  This made the book flow much smoother and was a much easier read. This book had more somber emotions, especially where Mea was concerned. 
Those times, dealing with Mea’s flashbacks to her family or the things her mom would tell her, were especially heartbreaking.  Those times in the book made me want to jump into the story and try to get her mother to wise up. Those moments were frustrating to say the least! The author did a great job getting those emotions and feelings to really shine through on this story.
We didn’t get to know Josh much in the story. He lives with the triplets and has a family but we don’t know much about his family. It would have been nice to dive a little bit more into his past life.
Overall, a good read, not as much depth as the first one, but a good read and answers questions that arise during the first book regarding Mea and Josh. Pick up book one before you read this one, things will definitely make more sense.

Review for Sacrifice

 **I received this book from Enticing Journey in exchange for a fair and honest review.**
I was quite shocked that this book goes back to Sidney’s POV, much like the first book. I enjoy Sidney and Simon as characters, they are witty, creative, and emotional.
Unfortunately, this book seemed kind of stale or a slow start.  I loved the first and second book and this book was tough to get started.  However, once you get it started, it flows quite well.
I love reading just how into Sidney Simon is. I love every time that Sidney is needing a peanut butter cup fix Simon is always there with them. It is so frustrating that they don’t just admit to their love for one another rather than beating around the bush.
Priscilla is still around and at times back with a vengeance! Her character really ruffles my feathers at the antics she is up to.  The author does such an incredible job writing her character and evoking emotion from her readers in such a manner.
This author absolutely loves her cliff hangers! Be prepared to be left hanging once you finish this book, just as the first two. Don’t fret too much as the author does a great job bringing the books together so far!


Review for End Game

 *I received a copy of this book from Enticing Journey in exchange for a fair and honest review.*
Wow! Emersyn does an incredible job with the plot twists, turns, and nail biting scenes.  This book definitely doesn’t disappoint.  She is an author that leaves you guessing at each turn and I can promise when that turn comes something completely different will happen then what you expect to happen. This isn’t a “relaxing” sort of read but it’s a great read.
This book is full of twists and turns but it is also full of emotions. You will be happy and excited one moment then wanting to throw your kindle across the room another.  Simon and Sidney are two characters that will constantly keep your heart beating!
This is a one of a kind story full of surprises and cliff hangers for the previous books, but it is a very well written series. I’m definitely glad I was able to read each story and look forward to reading more of Emersyn’s work in the future.


"And these two between the sheets, good gracious. It was HOT HOT HOT! The chemistry was undeniable. It sizzled and poured off of the sheets. Simon was a beast." ~ Renee Entress Blog (Adjournment)

“Emerysn Vallis has an incredible writing style, the story comes out smoothly and flawlessly with perfect attention to detail. Her characters are amazing as well, the interactions between all of them are hilarious and the banter is perfect.” ~ The Truth About Fiction Book Blog (Hanging Pawns)

"Emersyn Vallis has done a wonderful job on the Fate Series. Adjournment, Hanging Pawns, and now Sacrifice are definitely in my definite recommend list, and re-read list for 2014/2015" ~ Battery Operated Book Blog (Sacrifice)

"PERFECT ENDING! PERFECT! Of the hundreds of ideas running through my head about how this amazing series was going to end, this was by far the best possible ending and exceeded all of my expectations!" ~ Swoon Worthy Books (End Game)

Hanging Pawns
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.
