A Series of Fates: Book Three

He is a fearless protector by nature and in his heart. But nothing’s ever simple with love… or fate.

At nearly seven feet tall, Zeus’s role had always been to protect the pack—but his newest charges need him more than most. Kimber and Kron are transplants from another pack, and they have a dangerous stranger on their tails. Zeus is determined to do his duty and drive the human out of town. But when he confronts Toren, his wolf has other ideas….

Something isn’t right, but should a huge, tattooed wolf with a secret soft heart fear his fate—to love a man with secrets of his own?

Fearing Fate returns readers to Easter Valley where we catch up with Max, Seth, and Christian while getting to see big, strong Zeus willing to do anything, include go against his alpha, to protect a stranger who turns out to be Zeus’s mate.

Told in Zeus’s third person POV, I really enjoyed getting to see Zeus find his mate. What he learns of his mate’s past is very interesting, and Toren’s presence brings more mystery to this series. Seriously, though, I absolutely love the humor sprinkled throughout this series – mainly from Max.

“Hmm… just going to ignore me, are you? We’ll see how well that works for you,” Max said, adjusting Kron in the pack.
Zeus grabbed a newspaper off the counter, continuing to ignore Max, and sat down at the café table next to Kimber, picking up a crayon to help her color.
“What doing, Unca-Eus?” Kimber asked, looking up, bright-eyed, from her paper.
“Uncle Zeus is hiding, sweetie,” Max answered, bringing her over a snack.
“Yes, but he’s playing hide-and-seek with his emotions. It’s the hardest of all the hide-and-seek games.”
“Oooooo,” she said, impressed.

I didn’t love how the unknown villain story plot wasn’t finished, but hopefully there are more books to the series coming? Because this definitely has some dangling threads that need to be tied off. So pretty please C.C. Dado, may I have some more?

Advanced Review Copy

Galley copy of Fearing Fate provided by Dreamspinner Press in exchange of an honest review.


I am an unapologetic book addict/lover. I’m happiest when reading and I spend most of my time with my Kindle, which is never far from my hand.
I love to be told a good story! I mostly read fiction: Romance, Erotica, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal (shifters? Yes, please!), a little BDSM when I’m in the mood, and I love a good ménage story. I DEFINITELY PREFER A HFN/HEA!

My biggest no-no’s are cheating, miscommunication / misunderstanding plots, unnecessary angst, and cliffhangers.

A sampling of my “Favorite M/M” stories:
