Have you ever felt like you were living your life for a future that was predetermined? Like there was some bigger picture you just prayed you would someday see clearly? That picture has been crystal clear to me since I was old enough to recognize it for just what it was.

Or I should say recognize him for who he was.

I’ve loved Cohen Cage since I was a small child. He’s been my everything for the last twenty-two years. I’ve loved him through every girlfriend he’s ever brought home. Through his college years and then mine. I’ve loved him through two deployments. And ever since the day I told him how I felt, he’s acted like I’m a stranger.

My name is Danielle Reid, and it’s time for me to get my man.

Our future is an unexpected fate, and no matter what our parents, siblings, and friends say…it’s going to be worth every second of the fight to make it happen.



I received an ARC of this book from TRSOR in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s pre-release blitz and blog tour promotions.

I’ve read all books from the Corps Security series. I have to be honest and say that I found the entire series mediocre. The whole plot was I enjoyed reading it, and there were great moments. However, as a whole, I couldn’t say that I loved the series. The only thing that got me excited was the little teaser of the future, this time, it’s the love story of the Corps Security babies.

Unexpected Fate is a great book to start a spin off of the previous series. I truly enjoyed this book much more than the first generation’s books. Dani is Axel’s daughter and Cohen is Cage’s. When the teaser for their love story was introduced, I’ve been excited for this ever since.

There were some grammatical issues that I couldn’t overlook. For example, the phrase “one in the same” is actually supposed to be “one and the same” which indicates that you are talking about just one person. I’m not sure why the editors or even the beta readers did not catch that. There were also other errors which, although minor, was glaringly obvious. I hope that for the next books, the grammar will be much better.

This book may be the best I’ve read from the author. The story itself is one of those premises that I love, one the is about a love that started from childhood and blossomed as the years passed. Hats off to Harper Sloan for this brilliant writing. If I wasn’t a fan of her before, I am now. Thanks to this book.



Harper lives in small town Georgia just a short drive from her hometown of Peachtree City. She (and her 3 daughters) enjoy ruling the house they dubbed ‘Estrogen Ocean’, much to her husband’s chagrin. Harper has a borderline unhealthy obsession with books; you can almost ALWAYS find her with her eReader attached. She enjoys bad reality TV and cheesy romantic flicks. Her favorite kind of hero–the super alpha kind!


Harper started using writing as a way to unwind when the house went to sleep at night; and with a house full of crazy it was the perfect way to just relax. It didn’t take long before a head full of very demanding alphas would stop at nothing to have their story told.
