Review: Redesigning Fate by A.M. Wilson

I left everything behind in order to be free. I should have known better than to think it would be so easy. All it took was one day at my new job. 

He came for me. 

I used a stranger to deter him, and in doing so, realized my heart began to beat again. Elias Brooks put me back together after Travis Dawson tore me apart. Travis makes it everybody's business that I belong to him, including Elias, but he couldn’t be more wrong.

He’s stalking me.

I’m afraid he’s come back to hurt me again. He promises he’s not. 
Travis pleads he’s only trying to keep me safe from none other than Elias. 

Who do I trust?
Fate led me down the wrong path before. Who’s to say it won’t happen again?

4.5 Star Review by Jen Skewes

If you love romance filled with drama and suspense then this book is for you.  It had me on the edge of my seat anxiously waiting to see what would happen next.  At times I found myself wondering who I can even trust.  It was a roller coaster ride of emotions and I loved every minute of it.

Marlene has moved on from her abusive, cheating boyfriend Travis.  She was with him for three years and when they first met he saved her.  But since then Travis has changed.  When she catches him in bed with another woman she decides to pick up and move.   She is in a new town hoping to start fresh, when she literally crashes into Elias. 

Marlene had no intentions of falling in love again.  There is an instant attraction but due to her past with her ex she has trust issues and has no plans to be with a man.  But Elias is persistent.  He wants her and he will not give up until he gets her.   While Marlene may have resisted Elias in the beginning she finds herself spending more time with him and at some point she starts falling for him.  But given her past issues stat to become an issue problem.  And she wonders how much she can really trust him.  But unfortunately for her, that is not her only problem, her ex boyfriend is in town and he will stop at nothing to make Marlene his again. 

I loved this book and all the drama and suspense that went with it.  I loved Marlene but at times thought maybe she was just a little too trustworthy.  Or maybe it’s because I had a hard time trusting anyone…lol 

I had an odd relationship with Travis.  There was a part of me that loved Travis because I think deep down he really loves Marlene.  And those few chapters where you get to hear his thoughts you see what happened to him in his past to make him the way he is today.  But then there was the side of him that I just hated.  He is a very complex man and I loved the parts that were from his point of view.  It helped you understand him more. 

Then there is Elias who I really did love.  I think he truly cared for Marlene and wanted to protect her but a part of me felt that maybe he had an ulterior motive where she was concerned.  He was a complete mystery, a puzzle that I needed to solve.   I loved him but I had a hard time trusting him.  I was waiting for the other shoe to drop when it came to him.  We still do not know what he does in the day and while I have my theories I am hoping that the one where he is doing something good is the one that ends up being the truth.  But time will tell and I hope we get the answers that we need in the next installment.

Redesigning Fate is a romance that is filled with drama and suspense.  I could not put this one down.  I went through this book loving the moments with Elias and how sweet he could be with Marlene but then something would change and I wondered who he really was.  At lease with Travis I knew what I was getting.  I am not sure where this story will go and who Marlene will even end up with.  There is a part of me that loves Travis and want to see him happy but I also loved Elias and Marlene together.  I love Elias but can I trust him?  I love Travis until he does something that causes me to just loathe the man. See my dilemma?  This book will have you on pins and needles the whole time because once Travis is back in the picture you have no idea what will happen next.  There were moments that were unexpected and in ways shocked me.  And the ending!!  Holy crap I cannot even explain it.  But just when you thought you were getting answers and BAM!!  That happened.  I cannot wait until the next book.  I need to know what happens, I need to know the answers to the questions that are swirling in my head. A.M. Wilson did an amazing job with this one and I am patiently waiting to see what happens next.
