British ad exec Dylan Locke isn't looking for love. He isn't looking for fate. He's definitely not looking for Audrey Lind. She's pretty, far too young, and overly romantic--in short, exhausting.
But when the girl, young enough to be his daughter, literally lands in his lap and asks for his expertise, he'd be lying if he said he wasn't interested. In her body, in her innocence, in her philosophy.
In the kind of kismet that starts with kisses.
But Audrey isn't looking for love either--she's looking for lessons, and she's certain Dylan knows everything she needs to learn.
If he agrees to play the teacher can he keep his heart?
Of course he can.
Then again, he might be lying.

Steamy and angsty older man/younger woman romance!
Sweet Fate by Laurelin Paige is the conclusion to Dylan and Audrey’s story, which began in Sweet Liar. Dylan has been thinking of Audrey but never dreams of seeing her again. Then when she enters his life again, though their chemistry is just as strong as it was before, he knows he can never be what she wants. But when she begins to explore a life outside of Dylan’s, can he truly give her up?
Dylan is an older man who felt love and relationships were way behind him. He believed he was a realist and did not believe in happily-ever-after and he was okay with that. Audrey was his complete opposite. Younger, full of life and still believes in fate, falling in love and finding your happily-ever after. When they run into each other again, their connection is as strong as ever, but Dylan knows he can never truly be what she needs or wants. Will he realize all he could have if he only opened his heart or will he let her walk away for good this time?
Though Sweet Fate by Laurelin Paige started a bit slower for me, I loved watching Dylan and Audrey maneuver their chemistry and relationship. The connection was strong between them, even as he tried to keep her at arm’s length. This older man/younger woman romance was a bit angsty and very steamy.
When a romantic person and a jaded person come together, they combust with chemistry. This is what happens when Dylan and Audrey meet and spend the handful of time together.
“Colliding into her had been like crashing into sunshine.”
Laurelin Paige is a brilliant writer who mesmerizes us with her sensual stories of desire and passion that we can’t get enough of. The anticipation of each new book release is almost too much too bear. “Sweet Liar” is an intriguing, spellbinding, intricately woven montage of pure desire between Dylan and Audrey. She believes in true love, soulmates, happy endings, instant attraction and complete devotion. Dylan knows that he shouldn’t want her, but he cannot stop the feelings from bubbling up inside of him. Avery is taboo: too young, too innocent, too starry eyed for a hardened man such as himself. She sees the world through rose colored glasses and he has a cold heart and does not believe in love. What could they possibly offer each other? As I turned each page of “Sweet Liar” I became caught up in the cat and mouse sparring between Dylan and Audrey. They are like fire and ice; she is sunlight and pure, and he is dark and brooding. Their connection is volatile and akin to a match lighting a candle; it only intensifies as it gets hotter. Dylan and Audrey’s romance continues in “ Sweet Fate”, part two of the Dirty Sweet Duet. Will their dalliance withstand any obstacles they may encounter?
