Summary

A sexy, friends-to-lovers, second-chance romance with a twist by USA Today best-selling author Tia Louise. 

To be “just friends” with a guy, you’ve got to follow The Rules:
Don’t touch him unnecessarily.
Don’t share your intimate dreams with him (even if he asks).
Don’t kiss him, and definitely don’t sleep with him. 

Scout Dunne and I have been “just friends” since childhood.
He’s everything you could want - sexy, charming, confident - every girl’s wet dream.
Until we broke The Rules. 

We broke them in the ocean, in my aunt’s bathroom, in my bed....
It was the hottest week of my life.
I’m one of the few people who knows the first-round NFL draft pick wants more than a life of sports.
Because we’re friends, right?
Not anymore. 

Now he’s gone, and I’m trying to get my career back on track.
Mamma said a guy would never put your dreams ahead of his.
But the twist of fate?
It’s something you never see coming. 

Twist of Fate is a stand-alone friends-to-lovers, single-parent romance. No cheating. No cliffhanger.

Wow

So I’m going to start this by saying Scout and Daisy were so gorgeously cute, and they had so much chemistry an absolute amazing amount of chemistry. This was an absolute delight to listen to even if I regularly wanted to shake some sense into the main characters. The narration was also spot on which I found just really pushed it to the next level for me.

Scout & Daisy

I love falling in love and Tia Louise is always one I know I will have that with. Scout and Daisy were high school friends. Scout wanted more, but Daisy was not ready. College is over, they are back home and Scout is looking to break into acting. But the fire between these two still burns. Giving in to the passion, the two have a no strings attached affair and when it's time for Scout and Daisy to part ways again, they do. Now Scout is back again, and he has a mission. He wants Daisy. Four years have passed though,and will she still be there, willing and available? A lot can happen in that time. Secrets held, reputations to overcome, true love never dying, these two have a lot to get through. Listen to see what happens! I love this couple! Daisy is a sweet girl, and her confidence and friends keep her happy and secure. But you know she still yearns for Scout. Scout is sweet and has been dealt a tough hand in Hollywood. Will his career get in the way of his happily ever after? Easy on the ears and a great story made this audio total entertainment.

Narrated by the fabulous team of Sebastian York and Samantha Brentmoor, the characters easily came to life. I love both of these seasoned narrators and truly enjoyed their performance.

Emotions were spot on

I couldn’t put it down and spent half of a night awake, reading instead of sleeping. That’s how engrossed I was with the story and the characters.

I was intrigued by Scout since I discovered him in This much is true. He was so kind and good natured, but with a backstory that wasn’t all rainbows and sunshine. His love life was hinted at, and I couldn’t wait to learn more about Daisy. I wasn’t disappointed.

The two of them together are the bomb. They have an intense–if short–intimate relationship coupled with a strong friendship. Their feelings grew fast, and having read This much is true, I knew their relationship wouldn’t last and what was going to happen to Scout. It had me on the edge of my seat. I rooted for them. And let’s just say their reunion is everything and then some.

I felt some secondary characters could have been used more and better, but there were already a lot of them–if the story focuses on Daisy and Scout, they aren’t alone in the world, and we meet with a bunch of colorful characters. I highly recommend to read This much is true first for an enhanced experience, but this book is one you don’t want to miss either.

I loved the audiobook! Maybe the male narrator sounded a bit older than I imagined Scout, but his emotions were spot on. As for the female narrator, she was great. Good quality audiobook!

So Fun!

This book was light and breezy. A teeny bit of relationship drama thrown in but not much.

This book was sweet and then it got steamy once Scout found Daisy again. Then there were some EPICALLY HILARIOUS moments that literally had me crying tears of laughter 😂 so good!

Then the end came and it was a split of follow his acting dream or follow his family dream. (Read/listen to figure out the answer of how it all plays out)

And then TRAVIS UGH. He is the obnoxious “villain” in this story and just cringy.

The end was fantastic. Had me jumping for joy how she wrapped it up.

Now for the narrators: LOVE ME SOME SEBYO! Like seriously his voice is great for me.

Samantha Brentmoor seriously talented actress with a soft yet powerful voice. Very much a pleasure to listen to!

Friends to lovers

Scout and Daisy were friends from way back and they had their moment and moved on. When fate puts them together again a few years later they are right back where they left off with those feelings that never went away. After a week of great times and a little more they both have their futures laid out and so they go their separate ways. Fast forward a few year and Scout comes home to find more than he realized he was missing.

I loved how Daisy was a strong independent woman that decided to live her life on her own. She doesn't need Scout although she wants him. I also loved how even though life kept throwing curves at Scout he never gave up and finally got what he wanted or thought he wanted. Great love story.

Sebastian York and Samantha Brentmoor were a pleasure to listen to. Loved their voices and they brought Scout and Daisy to life.

Second Chance Love

Daisy and Scout are friends in highschool and have one moment together before going their separate ways.. Fast forward a few years and they have one week of amazing friendship and passion before going their separate ways yet again.
I absolutely love how Daisy is so strong and actually puts herself and her passions first. She has a good head on her shoulders. Scout is the gorgeous and talented town hotty with a very bright future ahead of him. Their passion was so obvious and hot. The book was written so well that you feel what the characters were feeling. I love that it was kind of a slow burn to them finally admitting they can't live without each other, but there was still plenty of steam throughout the entire book. There wasn't a single part where I thought geeze this is slow or will it ever happen!?!?
The narrators both did am amazing job telling the story and I was entranced by their voices. I just loved this story so much, and I know it will be one that I come back to over and over again whenever I need a mood booster. I can't wait to listen to Scout's brother story.

An amazing book even more amazing in audio!

Sebastian and Samantha knocked this one out of the park! The passion and love you feel between Scout and Daisy is brought to life with these two. I love the interactions with all the characters in this book, and how they bring you into the story. It made me so happy listening to this story, and would recommend this one to anyone!

Amazing small town friends to lovers

This is the story of Scout and Daisy, a small-town romance, friends to lovers. With a chemistry they can't deny. They are both young and they have dreams that make them fall apart, Scout follows his acting career dream but when he goes back he finds himself with more things than he ever thought he will find. The story is beautiful and sweet, although it's one type of story I have read before, so the originality of it takes a star from me. I love Tia Louise books so this one was well written and had all the feelings.

Sweet and Sexy Romance!

This is the second book in the Taking Chance Series, a small town romance, friends to lovers, and second chance to love. I love this Series of interconnected stories. The cover is beautiful. I loved to follow Scout and Daisy on their amazing journey to love. Daisy is lovely, independent, and strong. Scout is sexy and handsome. The storyline is divided in two parts: the past, and the present. I loved to see again the characters from the first book, and the supporting characters are interesting! This is a beautifully written, fun, sexy, and heartwarming second chance to love. Sebastian York and Samantha Brentmoor did an amazing job with the narration. I enjoyed it. Looking forward for more books in this beautiful Series.

Second Chance

Daisy and Scout knew each other as teenagers felt a connection but never acted on them. Years later after college and before Scout goes to try his hand at acting in Hollywood Scout and Daisy act in those feelings. They are explosive together but know this is only temporary. Feelings are feelings and they can’t be denied. Four years later Scout returns and finds out that he left something behind with Daisy. How will he respond. Loved this book this was my first book by Tia Louise and will not be my last I want to read JR and Hope’s story and hoping for a Sly story as well.

Twisted Up and Loving It

This book had me all twisted. These characters had me all twisted. Scout and Daisy need to lose each other to find each other. They gave each other the space to live their dreams but fate interfered. They just needed to catch up to what it had in mind. I loved the cringe moments, the hot moments and the moment they realized their real dream.

Second chance

What a fantastic second chance romance following Scout and Daisy. This book was filled with great quirkiness, feels and just a great telling of this story. I had been curious about Scouts story after reading JR and this did not disappointment. Their story consists of them growling up and finding themselves then each other again despite the obstacles. Their individual journeys were perfectly told and the having their paths cross again was just inevitable.

The narrators did a phenomenal job and I could listen to their voices with the perfect inflections for days.
