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.
Fun and sexy

I was captivated from the beginning as it pulled at my heartstrings. You will love the characters. I loved the connection and banter. The chemistry is off the charts sexy and steamy and leave you panting and wanting more. Looking forward to reading more.

YOU. NEED. THIS. BOOK.
I love the Dirty Universe and the heroes Paige has already made us fall in love with. Dylan Locke is the British man I’ve been waiting for!
If you haven’t read a Laurelin Paige book, what have you been doing?!
Sweet Liar is absolute perfection!
A gorgeous, British executive and Bachelor who oozes ... appeal and charm.
A sweet, quirky, die-hard, romantic college student who is naive and fiercely passionate and caring.
This May to December romance between Dylan and Audrey had me so entangled and invested in their connection! It made my heart melt!
“I was caught. Ensnared in her net. I’d taken the bait, and after one sweet taste, I was captured. There was nothing left for me to do but surrender.”
I loved the tension, the fire burning chemistry between these two, their different views on love, the forbidden aspect (because I just love everything and anything forbidden), and the angst.
“Yes, Dylan was a good dad. But I needed to focus on the kind of “daddy” he could be to me.”
It has everything with a mix of sweet with just the right amount of smoking hot, dirty times.
What I really enjoyed most about it was the the huge age difference, but they knew how to work it and take advantage in that fact. Watching these two interact was everything, it gave me all of the feels and I need more! It’s what made this story so unique!
It’s no secret on how much I love Laurelin Paige’s books and so when I found out she was writing a duet on the hot British gentleman, Dylan Locke, I WAS THRILLED.
I love ALL of her books and Laurelin Paige is the Queen! She never, ever disappoints!
I highly recommended and absolutely love all of her books, her heroes and heroines, and how she is able to tell a story, hold your attention and heart captive until the very end!
I can’t wait to read more about Dylan and Audrey’s story in Sweet Fate! What a perfect start to this duet!
