Fate’s Design by Lola James

Fate's Design, a Paranormal Romance (Fate Series Book One)
Book Blurb~
A summer vacation in Italy with her twin sister, Morgan, is just what Megan Romano needs. But instead of fun, wine, and relaxation, she finds unexpected romance. Alexandros DiPiero, a sexy and mysterious Italian businessman, falls for Megan the minute he lays eyes on her, but Megan knows it’s too good to be true.
Increasingly haunting dreams that warn of danger and destiny plague Megan’s every sleeping moment. As her nightmares become deadly and her love life heats up, Megan will come face to face with her worst fear.
The main character, Megan, is a pretty cool chic. I loved that she was a good sister even when she didn’t feel like being one. Alex turned out to be much more than I expected, and I totally loved how things progressed without revealing all up front. This gave the moment of truth a bit more zing then it would’ve had otherwise. Morgan is an equally great chic. I loved her. Big twist there. Didn’t see it coming. I like to be surprised, so that was another plus for Lola’s book. The cast is bigger than I expected, but each character had their own personality which kept them separate and identifiable. There are dream sequences in this book,so if you’re not a big fan of them be forwarned. Megan and dreams go hand in hand. They are intricate, and I enjoyed them, but they aren’t a pet peeve of mine either.
The romance is solid. Mrs. James builds up to it though the attraction is immediate. There may be a love triangle starting, but I can’t say for sure. The end sort of left me hanging which was probably Lola’s intention. Cheeky girl. Emilian’s appearance was exciting. He’s departure not so much; however, I am sure we will see him again. Real soon.
Over all, Fate’s Design is a fun read that I could barely put it down. 
~Addressing a few of the readers indie book questions~
1) Where there a lot of grammatical mistakes?
 A lot? No. Some? Yes. Nothing that will have you cringing through the entire read or becoming frustrated to the point of no return.
2) Does the writer have a voice/prose strong enough to entertain?
 A resounding yes. 
3) Is there an actual plot or is it just a Willy Nilly read that almost has a plot but nothing concrete?
No. There’s a plot. There are questions you want answered. There is some bow tying near the end, (by that I mean more than two mysteries solved at a time) but I felt satisfied by these answers and not in any way jipped.
