Late For Fate by Lori M Jones
Meeting the perfect person for you is tricky. Out of the 10 bazillion people in the world, how are you sure to meet “The ONE”? Lori M Jones tells a story of one lady’s struggle to meet her perfect someone in Late for Fate.
When your name is Jezebel you get lots of looks and questions. But, does her name fit her? Is that why she hasn’t met her one and only? Jezebel is out looking for her perfect match, however, it just hasn’t happened yet. When she is in a terrible metro accident, she wonders if the handsome man she was seated next to, Kirk, was her one and only. And did he survive the horrific crash and subsequent fire?
Kirk is a man in the middle of a divorce. Well, they are separated, living in the same home. His wife wants space, is in the middle of suing her employer and in love with her ex-boss. Kirk is in the dark about the being in love part. He is under the impression that she was suing for sexual harassment.
Jezebel is the paralegal working on a legal case where the plaintiff says she was removed from her job because of sexual harassment. The defendant, Jezebel’s client, claims the plaintiff was harassing him.
Enter a ride on a metro, sitting next to each other are Kirk and Jezebel. Kirk thinks that if he could get close to Jez than he will learn something to help his wife’s case. What a tangled web weaved!
Jezebel believes that Kirk is being honest with her and has no idea his wife is the plaintiff. He accidentally saw her records she was reading before the crash. Eventually, the truth comes out and the ensuing bomb explodes, leaving everyone single. Jezebel realizes that she really was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Will she find her true love? Only fate knows for sure…
D.C. paralegal Jezebel Stone’s tardiness often gets her in trouble, but this time it leads to meeting her dream man. Her choice of metro seats places her on track for finding love again. But when their ride ends in a fiery crash, their separation sends her on a mission of reuniting with him and finishing their fateful trip.
But instead, it entangles Jezebel in the twisted lives of those determined to destroy each other. This prickly path also holds the potential of leading Jezebel to an unlikely place of joy. Finding joy seems impossible when life is literally exploding all around her.
