#BookReview: Illusions of Fate by @kierstenwhite

Illusions of FateAbout the Book: I did my best to keep you from crossing paths with this world. And I shall do my best to protect you now that you have.

Jessamin has been an outcast since she moved from her island home of Melei to the dreary country of Albion. Everything changes when she meets Finn, a gorgeous, enigmatic young lord who introduces her to the secret world of Albion’s nobility, a world that has everything Jessamin doesn’t—power, money, status…and magic. But Finn has secrets of his own, dangerous secrets that the vicious Lord Downpike will do anything to possess. Unless Jessamin, armed only with her wits and her determination, can stop him.

She also coauthored In the Shadows with Jim Di Bartolo. She lives with her family near the ocean in San Diego, which, in spite of its perfection, spurs her to dream of faraway places and even further away times. 

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: This book reminds me of something I've watched before (in a very good way) but I can't think of the name.

Recommend this book? Yes!

Notes and Opinions: There's alot of magic and adventure and it's just a wonderful story all around. Sure, there's a bit of insta-love but still, the romance is adorable. And Finn. I need one. Jessamin is a total kick-butt and sassy but very stubborn woman. Both of them are just so darn adorable!! Kiersten drew me in with her writing style and descriptions and I honestly didn't want to leave the world. The twist near the end still pisses me off...alot makes sense now but still. Why?? I kind of wish there was a second book.

Go Into This One Knowing: This is a standalone.
