Fate is a Moreno Brothers spinoff series.
He ruled out attachments years ago. Then one day he crosses paths with a beautiful but pampered daddy's little princess. History has taught him one thing about women like her—steer clear.
She was starting over. She moved back to her home town, took a new job assignment, and left her past behind. For the first time in over eighteen months, she's even intrigued by a man—a sexy but cold and indifferent drill sergeant. Despite feeling drawn to him, she has no time to figure out his inexplicable aversion
Then Fate steps in one night, forcing them together. There's a connection neither can refute, and they both consider giving into the undeniable attraction.
Fate however can also be cruel. Just when they surrender to their heart's desires, past demons resurface in the most unexpected way, threatening the happiness neither realized they so desperately needed.

He’d just taken a bite of the pizza and the flavors had exploded in his mouth when he heard the tail end of Regina’s conversation and froze.
“She’s dating my Ricardo? Are you sure it’s the same one?”
Chewing slowly, he waited as Regina paused and he heard the refrigerator door open. “Get out!” she said, suddenly sounding a little too giddy for someone who’d just walked away in such a somber mood. “She’s bringing him Sunday? Does she know he’s my ex?”
She paused again while Brandon swallowed down his pizza. It went down a little harder than he’d expected.
“Oh, wow. Did she say if he’s still surfing? I wonder if he still looks the same.”
After hearing that, Brandon started toward the kitchen. He didn’t want to be petty, but Regina’s interest in her Ricardo was irritating as shit, so he figured he may as well get close enough to hear every word. It wasn’t like she’d hushed her voice or was trying to keep this conversation private, so he leaned against the kitchen entryway and took another bite, looking straight at her. Suddenly, she seemed uncomfortable. It was almost as if it’d just hit her that Brandon could hear what she’d been talking about.
Clearing her throat, she turned away and reached into the fridge. “No, don’t be silly.” Now she lowered her voice, making Brandon chew slower in an effort to remain calm. “I know she’s annoying, but I’m seeing someone now, remember? Besides, I wouldn’t play those immature games. Listen,” she said, abruptly turning back to Brandon with a smile. “We were about to eat. I’ll call you later. Let me know if there is anything you need me to bring.”
She hung up and put the phone down on the counter. “You want a soda?” she asked, reaching back for the refrigerator handle.
Brandon shook his head, staring at her as he stuck the last piece of pizza in his mouth and continued to chew.
“Did you like it?” she asked, smiling brightly.
Again his response was nonverbal; he simply nodded but continued to stare at her. She tried walking past him, but he didn’t move. His body took up most of the door frame, so she stopped, placing her hand over his chest. The tiny smirk on her face relieved him slightly. Obviously, she wasn’t too worried about this.
“My sister was just telling me about my cousin’s new boyfriend.”
“I heard.” He finally spoke up. “Your Ricardo?”
She brought her fingers over her mouth in an attempt to hide a bigger smile. “I just meant my ex.”
Brandon brought his hand around her and squeezed her ass, making her yelp then laugh nervously. “Your ex who you’re still curious about?”
“No,” she said, caressing his face as she pressed her body against his. “Not curious.” She pecked him softly. “I just haven’t seen him in years.”
She tried to kiss him again, but he pulled back. “Curious,” he restated then nipped her bottom lip as he brought his other arm around her and squeezed her other ass cheek even harder. “What kind of immature games was your sister asking you to play?”
That surprised her though she quickly recovered and kissed him a little more aggressively, but he pulled away again.
“Answer the question, Regina,” he said, spreading her ass cheeks and sliding his fingers upwards.
He almost smiled at her gasping, but he continued to stare in her suddenly aroused eyes.
“Our cousin can be annoying, so my sister thought it’d be fun if I flirted with him Sunday.”
He spun her around and pinned her against the kitchen wall. “And that’s how you refer to me to your family? Someone you’re seeing?” Before she could respond, he ripped her panties off. “Is it? Not your boyfriend? I thought we discussed this?”

What reviewers are saying about Breaking Brandon (Fate #2).
Amazing, breathtaking, absolutely perfect!
OMG, Elizabeth Reyes you did it one more time. I didn't think I could be more
in love of another story if not was a Moreno's but you proved me wrong!
My favorite Elizabeth Reyes book yet!
The chemistry he and Regina had from the very beginning was amazing! And
I can say I was completely blindsided with the twist! NEVER saw that coming!!!!!
Elizabeth Reyes has such a way with writing her stories that they don't feel like
stories. Thank you Elizabeth for doing what you do best! I will always and forever
drop everything for every new release you have! ~Amazon Review~
I really love that Brandon is an all or nothing kind of guy and so straight
forward. It's just nice to read a love story where it's not all about miscommunication
and high drama. Though I do have to mention there is one surprise I did not see
coming and makes we want to read 'Romero' again. ~GoodReads Review~
Emotionally charged read! Second book in the Fate series. I absolutely
loved this story. Brandon was such a wonderfully crafted character the author has
really excelled herself creating him. I loved how this closed off man was gradually
broken down by his feelings for Regina. ~Amazon review~
Exceptional! I have read all Elizabeth Reyes books I have loved them all I
didn't think it would make me cry as fate 1 did it was such a powerful book and
written so well I loved the way this book came together and I couldn't put it down
reading it in under a day I cannot wait for the next book ~Amazon UK Review~
250 stars. Really! Learning the deep background behind Brandon's past
and his previous actions was heartbreaking as well as illuminating and makes the
moment when he allows himself to "attach" to Regina and fall in love (in one
weekend!) unbelievably powerful. I could go on and on and on and on!
