Review: Tempting Fate  (Fate of the Gods #1.5) by Amalia Dillin

Mia's lived in her sister's shadow long enough. Now that Abby is getting married to a Frenchman, Mia scents freedom. In fact, Jean DeLeon, the groom's too-charming cousin, seems like the perfect place to start. But the House of Lions is full of secrets, and what started out as an exciting fling is quickly becoming more frustration than fun. Mia wants answers, or she wants out, and it isn't like she doesn’t have other options. Ethan Hastings, for example. Tall, handsome, and gray eyes like nothing she's ever seen before.

The fact that Jean seems to hate him is just a bonus.

(This novella takes place during the events of Forged by Fate).

I really enjoyed reading this short novella. It gives us a little background on how Mia met Adam uhh, I mean Ethan. In the first story she just kind of shows up with him and not a lot is known about how she actually met him and if this is all just a game for Ethan or if he really likes Mia.

Mia does come across selfish and self-centered but I can’t imagine being the sister to Eve reincarnated. Let alone later marry Adam. I can’t help but think that maybe Mia might feel a little better about everything if she actually knew what was going on instead of being kept in the dark. I hope that since she married into it she does get let in on the big secret.

The novella is short and the author really lets you get an insight into Mia. After reading the first book I really didn’t feel very sorry for her nor did I really give much thought as to what everything would do to her but after reading this I understand her personality better. She is selfish and whiny but she also has always lived in her sister’s shadow and feels she has something to prove as well as she wants something that is all hers and has nothing to do with Abby. I can’t blame her for this and it would drive me crazy knowing everyone knew something but wouldn’t or couldn’t tell me.

I can’t wait to read the next book to see if Mia is let in on the secret and what about Lars with his electric eyes. Is he going to play a bigger role in the next book?
