Adjournment (The Fate Series Book 1) by Emersyn Vallis


When I chose to leave home I knew what I was giving up. I knew I was walking away from life as I knew it and the plans that we had made.
We…us…him and I…
It’s funny to think of him in a different light…or life.
That’s what it feels like, a lifetime ago.
But I’m a different person now. I have rules and goals. And if it wasn’t for my parents’ vow renewal I would have successfully evaded him for the rest of my life. This is not by choice, I can tell you that.
I just need to focus and remember the key to this weekend is avoidance…and alcohol. But if anyone can pull that off it’s me, Sidney Chandler, queen of avoiding anything that will make me feel.
It’s just one weekend, right?
One very long weekend with my family…friends…my sisters and me…together, and our nemeses, the McAllister triplets.
What could possibly go wrong?
They say you never forget your first love, now just imagine how hard it is to forget your only.
This is going to suck.


Emersyn Vallis currently resides on the east coast with her three girls. She is typically mistaken for being quiet and reserved but those that know her know, she’s deep in thought plotting out stories lines and conversations in her head. When she’s not writing she’s a cook, a personal baker to her family, a chauffeur, a mediator, a guidance counselor, a stenographer, an art judge, a personal shopper and above all a caffeine chugging, Reese’s Cup addict. She’s fluent in sarcasm and hopes one day her girls learn the language. After reading as a hobby for most of her life it wasn’t until she had discovered R. L. Mathewson’s ‘Neighbor from Hell Series’ and Tara Sivec’s ‘Playing with Fire Series’ that she came up with the idea to fuse comedy and suspense together and her passion for writing was born.

4 stars

This book was well written and I really enjoyes it overall. The only drawback I have, and its the reason for the 4 stars instead of 5, is the beginning of the story is a bit sticky and at times a little confusing. Once you get further into the story, the plot picks up and you start to understand a little bit of the beginning better.

Simon and Sidney are a great rivalry. There is ALWAYS a confrontation when the two are in the same proximity. The only question is, how bad will the fight be? Their chemistry is undeniable as is the love they feel for each other. It has been a rough go for Sidney but will she be able to forgive the one man who holds the key to her heart?

I’m looking forward to continuing this journey with the next book, Hanging Pawns.
