Goodreads Summary:

A young adult paranormal romance/ suspense novel. When Lexie's mother announces she is marrying a Romanian immigrant, Lexie leaves behind her life in Connecticut for her penance in "The Moose Capital of the World." Small town living is strange enough, now Lexie must cope with her overbearing stepfamily monitoring her every move. They disappear into the woods and keep a secret locked in their shed. Her calm mother is now having violent outbursts and Lexie's sister is hearing sinister sounds coming from the forest behind their home. She soon discovers the boy she has been dreaming about is living in Maine. Despite Torin's reputations, Lexie cannot resist the attraction pulsating between them. Animals and people are turning up dead and Lexie learns the strange, new world she lives in has real-life monsters. When she decides she wants to be with Torin forever, she must fight to protect her family from a formidable evil.

My Take:

Poor Lexie! I feel for this girl. Her mom is married to her new boyfriend just a year after losing her father. Her new siblings are odd...with a capital O. She is having a rather strange dream evolving around a certain boy, but it always ends violently. All this while being a teen and moving far away from her best friend...thats rough! But I like Lexie and really fell right into the story.

Lexie's dream feels real to her for a short time after waking up...hoping, longing for this mystery guy to be real. But even so, she is now moving to the middle of nowhere with her new family in tow, so mystery boy may be lost to her forever. But Lexie sucks it up and doesn't complain. She wants to make her mother happy and not let her down.
The story's plot is really interesting and I was actually shocked with certain revelations throughout the book. Its a great, quick paced read that you will fly through. Fate Fixed is full of suspense and romance, keeping you up late at night to finish. I enjoyed this authors writing and the use of multiple point of views. I enjoy books with different POV's..they always add a new perspective to the story line. Most the characters were believeable and realistic, just normal teens. And then you have Maxim. He is just one strange puppy. (HA! No pun intended)
I definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys paranormal reads. And I am looking forward to her next book in the series, Blood Twist.
