Book Review: A Brush with Fate by Sila Long

This is a captivating and wonderful erotic romantic suspense story. It is a story that I couldn’t put down. The plot was quick, and the characters were as diverse as they were unique and authentic. I just love a story like that. And I especially love suspense stories that have an erotic and romantic tinge like this one.   Sila Long creates a story of love, passion and intrigue through the jealousy that is interweaved into the story. Where there is love there always seems to be some jealousy or other. But this jealousy really resonated with me through the characters and the plot.   The story is about Brook Jacobson who is forced to reweave her life after being consumed with grief after the murder of her husband. There are so many unanswered questions, as there are with most murders. She was trying to cope as a widow and dealing with all the negative emotions and profound sadness that such a situation brings on.   However, when her fate took an unprecedented turn towards something that she never would expect in a million years, she was wondering why something like this happened. She was thrown into an unreal world with Isaac Cole, a mega film star. Isaac is captivated by Brook’s many wonderful assets such as her intellect, beauty, warmth, and her strength of character given all that she went through. This made her sexually attracted to him almost immediately.   However, this sexual attraction is tainted by Isaac’s life long problematic love relationships and problems with monogamy. It poisoned what could have been a great relationship with Brook. But love is blind; so, Brook falls completely in love with him. However, he cannot commit to their relationship for any length of time. Isaac is a very independent and well-established person. So, he always gets his way.   This story weaves a modern-day romance. Not too many people commit wholeheartedly to anyone anymore. But the story is so much more than about a romance. It is about two people coming together at a time when they need each other the most. I can’t wait to read the next book!   Website:
