Chasing Fate by Mia Monroe 5 Stars (Friendship and Desire Series Book 2)

 When you know what you want and are always searching for it, you sometimes miss what's right in front of you.  That's what you'll find in Chasing Fate

“But all this time, all the starts and stops, we were really just chasing fate. We finally caught up.”
Mia Monroe

From the blurb:
Hooking up with your friend is a totally acceptable way to pass the time until your soulmate shows up. Right?

I’m on a mission - happily ever after or bust. I just know my handsome, successful, bearded prince is out there waiting for me to find him. I’ve had my cards read a million times. This is my destiny. True, it’s been a challenge navigating the dating scene, but you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince.

So when my childhood bestie reappears after years apart, announcing his desire to reconnect, it’s a pleasant distraction to introduce him to my world and help him acclimate again. He’s not my type at all, but he’s fun enough to pass the time with. Burnt out from chasing yet another potential Mr. Right, I offer a friends with benefits deal. I could use a bit of fun.

If only Diego had some of the qualities I’m looking for in a mate. Just because he’s funny, sweet, charming, and incredibly good at — um, anyway, he’s just not the one. He couldn’t be. The cards wouldn’t steer me wrong.

But the longer we do this, the more I wonder, are we just blowing off steam or are we chasing fate?

My review:
I love that the Friendship and Desire Series is focused on mature men - it's not all clubs and dancing, it's quiet nights watching movies and making dinner together and of course a fwb arrangement!

Mia Monroe continues to deliver novels that suck me right in and make me feel that I'm right there in a chair watching Sydney and Diego learn about each other and fall in love.  The side characters, including Zach and Dom from Dirty Forty, give the story depth and fun and I can't wait for Fancy Free, the third book in the series!


  1. Being in my forties, I love stories that are geared towards enjoying time together at home. Friends to lovers is my go to read also. I am definitely going to grab this one!
