I’m so very excited to be a part of Elizabeth Reyes’ Read-A-Long of her fabulous ‘Fate’ series and week 3 which is Suspicious Minds’. Below there’s a summary of chapters 21 through the Epilogue, favorite quotes, a couple of discussion questions and more!
Oh my gosh, y’all! It’s really such a good book and I’m so stoked that I am a part of this and get to give you information about Chapters 21 through the Epilogue. Remember that there’s a Rafflecopter for a signed ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) of her newest book His to Guard which will be out soon! That is one of the coolest prizes I’ve seen an author give. Seriously, it’s super cool.
OK, here we go!!
What happened in chapter 24 – the epilogue?:
Her family determines that it’s not Jay who has her, because Olivia landed safely in San Diego, according to the air line, and Jay was being held in jail for possession at the time.
Meanwhile, Olivia comes to and finds out she’s with Elton. He explains to her that he picked her up at the airport and had a breakdown about Lorenzo and insisted he stop and he get her alcohol, and begged him not to take her home. He says he offered to take her to the cabin and thought it sounded perfect, and that they already called her family who was perfectly fine with her staying with him for a few days. But Olivia knows her brothers would never react that way.
She fights Elton and tries to escape, but the cops burst in with her brothers and Lorenzo, who have managed to find her and rescue her.
Lorenzo feels guilty, certain he caused Liv’s breakdown that led to her buying that 2am flight but Vince insists Elton had been planning this for some time. He’s determined to win her back and has been texting Olivia every day, but she’s too scared to talk to him. But Isaiah persuades her to go to him.
They get back together, and Olivia moves in with Lorenzo. In the epilogue, Lorenzo proposes to her in a very Lorenzo fashion.
“Lorenzo could already tell it’d be a race between all her brothers and Lorenzo to see who got to Jay first.”
“As impossible as things felt, not only did he have every intention of begging for her forgiveness, he’d stop at nothing to get her back.”
“I’ve known it since day one. You were meant for me baby.”
“Lorenzo wouldn’t even entertain the idea of a future without her.”
Did you think it was going to be Elton or Jay?
What’d you think of Lorenzo’s proposal?
About SUSPICIOUS MINDS
Good girls cheat too.
It’s a bitter reality Lorenzo Moreno knows all too well.
After his “good girl” fiancée blind sides him by cheating on him with her ex Lorenzo swears off relationships for a while, if not forever.
Until Fate steps in.
Unable to fight the incredible pull he feels to Olivia, a girl who was supposed to be just a meaningless one night stand, Lorenzo gives into his heart. But only after making one thing utterly clear. He will not deal with any exe’s or other men in her life. Period.
She’s not that person anymore.
For too long Olivia Romero shamefully put up with a manipulative and overly controlling boyfriend. So when fate pairs her up with the gorgeous but intense Air Force pilot she’s ready to stand her ground. Cutting all ties with her ex is no sacrifice for Olivia. It’s why she willingly complies with Lorenzo’s uncompromising stipulation.
As their relationship intensifies so do Lorenzo’s suspicions about any man in her life. Determined to not be that weak girl anymore, Olivia demands to be trusted. Despite how vehement her new boyfriend can be, her diligence seems to be working.
But when an unforeseen crisis arises Olivia is forced to make a decision. A decision she knows in Lorenzo’s jaded and suspicious mind could be unforgivable.
