What if there was just one man out there who was meant for you? Would you know him if you saw him? Would he know you? Katherine didn't believe in soul mates, she wasn't even sure if she believed in love... until the night she saw him. There was something oddly familiar about his dark blue eyes, but she was sure she'd never seen him before. The only thing more confusing than the overwhelming attraction she felt toward this mysterious stranger, was the way he was staring right back at her with that same look of curious fascination. Then suddenly he leaves and she's left with nothing but the haunting memory of his beautiful eyes and the strange connection they seem to have with her recurring nightmare. The day Michael's mother died was one of greatly mixed emotions. He would miss his mother, but her passing meant that he would finally be free of his oppressive father. He was leaving and nothing was going to stop him. But why couldn't he stop thinking about the beautiful woman he had seen the night he got the call about his mother. Why had she seemed so familiar? More than once their paths will cross, but will they ever find each other? Will Fate ultimately bring them together or keep them apart?...

    I was given a copy of the Love’s Trilogy in exchange for an honest review.In the first book of this trilogy, the main characters are Michael and Katherine. They both had fulfilled lives, missing only one key ingredient each: one another.This book starts very slowly, as we start to know the characters and see how each Katherine and Michael grow while not having met each other yet. Unfortunately, this sloth pace is kept faithfully until the end of the book…. The redundancy of hearing one character’s POV, then the other’s, on the same event, bothered me more than I would like to admit it. Once was enough.I longed to read about them meeting and falling in love and exchanging words. I really wanted that fateful moment to happen because it would probably mean that we would get “on point” with the story. Finally, Katherine and Michael met and I thought they totally deserved to be together.Michael and Katherine, once they found each other, had what looked like the perfect relationship, and I loved every bit of it. What better than a man who respects you and appreciated you enough to wait before kissing, just to enjoy your presence and to learn about you. And a plus for me was the passion between them, accentuated by the fact that they’ve longed for one another since the day they’ve met and yet, haven’t been able to communicate before their imminent reunion. Sigh. I get it, Tracey, you wanted it to be very romantic. It was.I liked the fact that, although it would look like infatuation for both characters to only fall in love at first sight and longing for each other for a loooong period of time without knowing each other, once they were reunited, they were able to pull off a very decent and –unrealistic to me perhaps, as a cynical person- a balanced relationship.I appreciate the effort of the book, although the beginning was a tiny bit too slow for my taste, and there were some grammatical errors and sentences such as “They were deep, like looking into the depths of a deep blue ocean.” that knocked me out my love boat.Other problems I had with this this book:•The characters had lives that were unproblematic. I don’t like perfection.•The best and most loyal friends anyone would wish for, always available, always pushing them.•Mike had problems with his dad – how to resolve a problem like that? Kill the dad and give all his long-earned money to the son. Of course.•The lack of dialogues for a while. •The ending…It was a predictable book, overall. I gave it 2 stars because it wasn’t that bad, but personally, it wasn't my cup of tea and I wouldn't read it again.

    What a unique take on life and love. Smith weaves a tale that keeps you captivated throughout. As a good book should, this novel leaves you both satisfied and wanting more. This novel is well and smoothly written, mixing a well thought out storyline with descriptions and narrative that draw you in, allowing you to walk through the world inhabited by the characters. Above all, Smith uses her central theme of fate or destiny to create a realistic story that tells a complete tale without ever once looking to anything other than the reality that we live.Although you definitely feel for the characters in this novel and all that they’ve been through, I appreciate that their relationships wasn’t easy. They didn’t just fall into it, but rather had to work at life like the rest of us. Throughout this novel Smith gives us a great deal of insight into how easily you can walk past the same person day in and day out and never notice through the hustle and bustle of everyday life, even if that individual is the one person you’re looking for. To tell this tale Smith switches perspectives between the two main characters and doubles back to tell both sides of their story. She does so without the headers, etc, that many authors use to differentiate between their characters. That said, there’s never any confusion as to whose perspective you are reading. Smith shifts her writing style to suit the character’s personality. She does so smoothly in a manner that adds to the story rather than detracting from it or breaking the flow.I became so wrapped up in the story that I completely lost track of time. It didn’t just bring tears to my eyes, it actually left me crying. This book broke my heart and then put it back together again. Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Book: Love's Fate by Tracey SmithRundown: This wonderful contemporary romance story takes you on a journey with two people who are searching for each other and fated to fall in love. Do you believe in fate? Pick up this book and you will. The story was smoothly written and flowed at a wonderful pace. I couldn't put this book down until I finished. I look forward to reading more from this author.What I liked: I fell in love with the characters right from the start. Ms. Smith tangles you in the lives of her characters and it's a web you won't want to get out of. This is truly a sweet story for everyone who loves romance.What I didn't like: It drove me nuts (in a good way) waiting for these two characters to finally meet. The author did a great job pulling your strings until finally, they met.

    Love's Fate is a touching story about two people who are meant to be together, Katherine and Michael, and their path to each other. Written from the perspective of each individual the story takes you on its twists and turns and missed connections. Tracey Smith is beautifully descriptive, sometimes a little overly so for my taste, but to each their own, in any case you have a clear sense of the characters and their love/passion for each other.Although parts are predictable and you can see where the story is going, the author does a good job of throwing in a few surprises and even teases along the way, especially when it comes to the missed connections.I read this story in one sitting, quickly drawn into the story line and characters and wanting to see how things would end up. My only suggestion to the author is to have the book edited as the mistakes take away from the reading. But that being said it was still a very good read and once cleaned up will be even more so. Highly recommended for any romance fans.

    This was such a sweet story. There were so many frustrating points where I thought I would never see Katherine and Michael find their happily ever after, but I am also so glad that things weren't easy and perfect for them. It was nice to see a couple who struggled with themselves alone before finding one another. There weren't other people involved in keeping them apart-no love triangles-just life. The story played out exactly as it should have. Neither Katherine nor Michael would have been ready for what their relationship brought had fate not intervened. Overall, I was very satisfied with the story, but I was also very happy to see that we would get glimpses of Katherine, Michael, and their friends in the next two books of the trilogy.*I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Name of Book: Love's FateAuthor: Tracey SmithISBN: 9781456067892Publisher: CreatespacePart of a Series: Love's seriesType of book: missed connections, romance, love, soul-mates, adult, passage of time, 1970s? contemporaryYear it was published: 2011Summary: Do you believe in Fate? Do you believe in soul mates? What if there was just one man out there who was meant for you? Would you know him if you saw him? Would he know you? Katherine didn't believe in soul mates, she wasn't even sure if she believed in love... until the night she saw him. There was something oddly familiar about his dark blue eyes, but she was sure she'd never seen him before. The only thing more confusing than the overwhelming attraction she felt toward this mysterious stranger, was the way he was staring right back at her with that same look of curious fascination. Then suddenly he leaves and she's left with nothing but the haunting memory of his beautiful eyes and the strange connection they seem to have with her recurring nightmare. The day Michael's mother died was one of greatly mixed emotions. He would miss his mother, but her passing meant that he would finally be free of his oppressive father. He was leaving and nothing was going to stop him. But why couldn't he stop thinking about the beautiful woman he had seen the night he got the call about his mother. Why had she seemed so familiar? More than once their paths will cross, but will they ever find each other? Will Fate ultimately bring them together or keep them apart?Characters: The protagonists seemed a little too good to be true, while antagonists lacked depth. While some conflict was there, it didn't last long, and I couldn't help but think that it was simply used to keep the story from being boring. Mostly its a story of missed connections and it does set up somewhat for next two books in the trilogy. Despite my complaints, I did enjoy reading the book. The only thing I know of the main characters is that Michael is a talented artist who grew up in a negative relationship, while Katherine is a talented baker who turned out to be an orphan.Theme: Soul mates are unexpectedPlot: Its written in first person narrative from both Michael's and Katherine's point of views which switch every chapter. What also tended to annoy me a little, is the repetition of the previous chapter; that is, let's say they went on a date, and we get Michael's point of view. Then in the next chapter Katherine rehashes the date from her point of view. Sometimes the story seemed to barely move. Sometimes the constant connections between the characters did seem annoyingAuthor Information: (from goodreads.com) born in The United States genderfemalewebsitehttp://authortsmith.wix.com/romance twitter usernameAuthorTSmith genreRomance member sinceAugust 2011 Tracey Smith grew up in Southern California, but as a teenager moved with her family to a small town in Arkansas. It was in Arkansas that she met and fell in love with the man of her dreams, who had also recently moved to the state. Fate brought them both to that small town and into each other’s lives and that is where they continue to live today raising their two children and living out their happily ever after.Opinion: While I liked the story and the writing style as well as missed connections which I guess give sort of Doctor Zhivago type air, what I found lacking are the antagonists and the conflict. From the get-go, I could sense that the two characters would be together forever, and whatever conflicts came up tended to be very short and lacked clear tension. Sometimes the characters themselves seemed too good to be true and somehow unrealistic, yet when they finally got together, I liked it, although I felt that the ending and epilogue weren't tied up well. I think that it would go one way, but it went another way, which seemed a bit, well, pointless.Quick Notes: This is a review for Making Connections. 4 out of 5 (0: Stay away unless a masochist 1: Good for insomnia 2: Horrible but readable; 3: Readable and quickly forgettable, 4: Good, enjoyable 5: Buy it, keep it and never let it go.)http://sveta-randomblog.blogspot.com/...

    All the book just felt like a long narration of events recorded in a diary. Almost every scene was repeated in each character's POV and throughout the book I was really frustrated with the "too close yeat too far" destined meeting, and not for the right reasons. Most often than not, I felt like the separation was forced and their obsession and love for each other held nothing coherent, I guess it's the fact about being soulmates but even if it was meant to be magical I just didn't feel it.The writing was decent, and the ending nice enough, but overall it was just okay.

    This was a very sweet romance it makes one wonder how many times in life you have just missed seeing someone. How many times have your paths crossed and you do not even know it. It is a story of love, lost, finding that someone special, only to lose them again, searching for that special someone, a soul mate. When I got to the end of this book I almost started crying that was a tear jerker for sure.This book show both sides of the story his and her view point’s it goes to show you again how men and women think different and how misunderstanding happen from lack of computation. At time I was saying turn around he/she is right there behind you. OH MY LORD they missed each other again. How many times can a person be so close and yet so far away? It seem Michael and Katherine spend a lot of time seeing each other across a room yet to never know who the other one is and can’t seem to meet up. Katherine saw blue eyes it is the only thing that kept coming back in her nightmares of when her parents died. Many years later she saw those blue eyes but couldn’t place where she saw them. She had to reach him, talk to him but he left with pain on his face. Eye touch from across a room watching looking but never find.Michael watched as a child when a whole loving family died right before his eyes. He saw the beautiful mother and father who loved each other so much. The beautiful daughter he wondered if she made it when he saw her father throw her away from danger. He could not forget those green eyes. He is at a lost no woman can reach his heart. Then across a room he sees those green eyes he watches ever move she makes. He must meet her then comes a call his mother is dead he leaves in pain and loses his green eye lady. Will they ever meet, love and become one?I found it hard to believe such a controlling father would let ones son go so easy. I kept thinking what about the father and low and behold there he comes controlling again. I found this book to be a sweet kind of love story that reaches into your soul and leaves you with an awww. It was a fast read but at time I kind of lost interest with the repeats of him and her going over the same thing. It was a nice read with a surprising ending. I was glad I finished the book.

    Despite the huge number of serious errors in this book, I enjoyed it, but don't for the life of me know why. Usually, lots of editing errors turns me off and I don't finish a book. This one had numerous grammar, spelling and punctuation errors on every page. The 1st person perspective switched between the H/h for each chapter... with the exact same scenes done from her POV then his. It got old very fast. And there were no surprises, by page 20 I knew how it would end. Still, something kept me reading. The only reason I can give for it is because the author made me like the main characters. That's why I'm giving this book a 3 instead of a 1 for the horrendous editing. And for some reason I plan to buy the author's latest book, in the hopes her editing has improved and is now equal to her character development. If that happens, she's destined to sell a lot of books.

    Fate is a very good concept. Their meetings are unique. Like Fate was really working its best to make them meet, yet the characters were too slow or something else, like Death, interrupts so they can't meet.It would have been very good. But it needed an editor. Or if it has one already, a better editor. The beginning of the story was nice, but then the grammar got bad. This story was one of those that had promising beginnings, then the grammar ruins it, as if the writer and/or the editor got lazy to check.I like how when they met they just finally fell in together. But not after going through the awkward "does he/she like me enough to let me kiss him/her?"It would have been a better read. But a light read nonetheless. Not something that would get you attached to the characters.Also, the ending scared me. Haha. Nice one.

    This is a story about the journey two people take to find each other and find love. Written in alternating first person perspectives, you are introduced to each character independantly and are able to see the connections that they share even before the characters themselves realize them. Many times their paths will cross, with an underlying theme of Fate drawing them together, but will they ever finally meet? Will Fate ultimately bring them together, or will life keep them apart?Once you pick it up you won't be able to put it down!

    This was a delightful story. Once again, Tracey Smith has captured my heart from the first word. I had to know from page to page if these two were ever going to find each other. Just when I thought it was going to happen, it...didn't. At one point I thought I was gonna actually through my Kindle in the floor if they missed each other again...and then it happened. What a refreshing story. And I actually loved the male lead as good as, if not better than the female lead. Good Job!!!

    Why does it seem like these people don't have email or cell phones?Why does Kat ask Michael how he knows her name? He knows her name because he's working on her shop. A contractor doesn't just work on a place not knowing the name of the owner. Actually, Amy did give him Kat's name. And did Kat never look at the business card of the painter?

    Another quick read book that my mom won. The book is set so every other chapter is told from each of the main character's point of view. The story was predictable as to where it was going, but was frustrating getting there!

    This is a sappy, amateurishly written love story. Although the characters are all college grads, there are many grammatical errors throughout. Here is one example--"but her and I." I do not think even a great editor could have saved this one.

    One of the better romantic novels I've reviewed recently. A bit frustrating at times as they ' dance around ' each other but when they finally get it on the story blooms with a terrific ending. Def worth 4*.
