Twist of Fate by Syd Parker

Storm chaser Remy Tate is dedicated to her job. She lives, eats and breathes all things storm related. Her sole purpose is to try to devise a way to get the storm warnings out earlier and to try and save as many lives as possible. Remy has no time for anything else, not even love.

Sarah Phillips started her career as a meteorologist. But after meeting Remy eight years earlier, she decided on a career change to storm chaser. Sarah’s encounter with Remy was more than just work related, she ended up in Remy’s bed, having the best sex of her entire life. Eight years later she is still thinking about it.

Remy and Sarah both have pleasant memories of that one night of hot sex. Remy would like a repeat performance, but Sarah will never make the same mistake again of a one night stand with Remy.

Will Remy realize there is more to life than one night stands and storm chasing? Will Remy persuade Sarah to give love a chance? Will Sarah relent and allow Remy in to her heart?

I love this book. I think it is an exciting, well written and researched story involving violent tornadoes, storm chasers and has a hot romance at it’s heart, so hot it is sizzling. Right from the first page, I was hooked right in. It is a page turner from start to finish and a book I was sorry to reach the end of. I read this book in practically one sitting, I couldn’t put it down.

The story has the two main characters, Remy and Sarah, I couldn’t help myself hoping they would finally see sense and get together. Also there is Sarah’s cousin and her storm chasing partner, Parker. Plus Remy’s storm chasing partner, Carmen. The interaction between all the characters is brilliant. The humor throughout is of the laugh out loud sort. Which in turn tones down the seriousness of the actual story for those who are faint hearted, but does not, for one minute, take away the importance of the situations and the story being told.

Syd Parker is a fairly new author. Each book she publishes shows her growth as a writer. One of the things I really love about Syd’s books is that the stories are always so varied and different in content and are centered around a romance.

It is my honest opinion that Syd Parker is heading down the path to becoming a big name in lesfic writing.

This particular book would make a brilliant TV drama or even a film. It has the excitement, story and scenery to hold an audience. Think Twister, think Twist of Fate. Both entirely different stories but the excitement is the same ‘edge of the seat’ sort.

Well done Syd, this is another for my growing collection of books to re-read. I can’t wait for your next book now!
