Forged by Fate by Reece Monroe Blog Tour

He’s waited more than 900 years to love her…

Being the Gatekeeper to Hades is no small feat, and waiting almost a millennia to meet your mate is damn near impossible. But Theo Bradford’s mark has finally surfaced on his intended. Now all he has to do is find her and convince her to embrace her supernatural heritage.

Young genius, Sadie Nowland, has got life figured out. Graduating college at the age of eighteen and accepting a six-figure job is just what she needs to prove she’s made something of herself. But when a strange tattoo mysteriously appears on her shoulder and Theo starts talking about Mates, it catapults her neatly laid out life into chaos.

Somehow a vicious demon banished to Hades defies Theo’s vanquish and returns, setting his target on Sadie, and she is thrust into the volatile world of Shomrei warriors and a connection to Theo her brain can’t comprehend and her body can’t deny. That primal bond proves more imperative to their survival than either could have ever imagined—and just may be the key to the world’s survival.

Brief warning to start this review. The first 25% moves a little slow. I had a hard time getting into it. The information Theo was throwing out was all fine and dandy, but  Sadie just kept fighting it. You know, scientist need proof and all that jazz. And you're kick ass, I get it you have a black belt. But sheesh... It gold a little old. 

Then finally... Finally she starts to believe what Theo and Justin are telling her. Well it's not so much as starts to believe, as starts to accept what she sees. Oh and what she feels! How long was she gonna fight that!?!? Once I got past the 24% it really starts to pick up and I got sucked in. 

There is so much going on I was afraid I would be overwhelmed, but I wasn't. It was beautifully written. It's a wonderful love story, wrapped in drama at every turn. Between Aggie and finding her parents, trouble at every turn, separation, fighting it's all there. Her and Theo make the ultimate pair. Indestructible. I really liked this book. Paranormal fans will love it. I give it 4 hearts.
