Unexpected Fate (Fair Falls Fated Book 2) by RS McKenzie

The Fair Fated Falls series returns with Unexpected Fate. This book covers some heavier subjects but manages to do that in a sensitive way.

From the blurb:


My boss is a jerk. My work is impeccable, but no matter what I do, it's never enough. He bites my head
off for the smallest infraction, real or imagined. Just being around him makes my body hot with anger—and other feelings I’m not brave enough to name. He’s gotten under my skin, but I can't focus on him when I have other problems. All I’ve ever wanted was a family of my own, but having a disorder that affects my fertility makes it feel like an unattainable dream. Just when I think I’ll never have the life I envisioned, fate intervenes and everything changes in one fell swoop.


My assistant is infuriating. He's a snarky smart ass—and smells better than any omega I've ever met. Something within him calls to the alpha in me, but he keeps me at arm’s length. I'm sure my cold shoulder and attitude haven't helped, but as soon as he comes near me, my brain seems to go offline. One of these days his smart mouth is going to get him into trouble, and I’m going to make sure he gets everything he deserves.

Unexpected Fate is a low angst, boss/employee, fated mates, M/M omegaverse romance about a snarky omega and his short-tempered alpha boss, with heats, knotting, office encounters, found family vibes, and a guaranteed HEA.

Trigger warning: mpreg, strong sexual content, fertility issues, off-page past parental abuse, off-page past attempted assault of a minor.

Jacquie's Review:

Incredibly steamy - these two could not keep their hands to themselves once they got over their animosity!

I liked them as a pairing. They both had a lot in common and wanted the same things out of life. While their start was rocky, mostly because of Rome's past, Rome did work to overcome and make up for that.
The highlight of the book for me was Tanner. I was pretty sure how the rest of the plot was going to go, and I enjoyed that, but Tanner stole every scene. He really cemented the two as a couple and gave Benji the family he had always wanted.

I still would like a little more world-building. Some details are missing to give a wider picture, but mostly I get sucked into the story and the steam.

Hopefully Peter is next, or maybe Kwan.
