I'm used to getting what I want. I've always taken what I wanted. No apologies. No excuses.

I know what it feels like to be betrayed, when someone else is calling all the shots. I've been down that road, and I'm not going there again. I've got my family, my friends, and the brotherhood. That's all I need.

I believe in Fate. Everything happens for a reason. But what do you do when Fate kicks you in the gut, plays a cruel joke on you?

When I met Quincy Priest, she was a flame I couldn't put out. A freakin' wildfire. She blew in to my life, burned it to the ground, then left me standing in the ashes. Gone as suddenly as she came. I'm not sure if I should love her or hate her… But I don't hate her. I could never hate her.

What do you do when the person who broke you may be the only person who can put you back together?

Can you run from Fate? 

Do you even want to?

This is Brody's story.

This story is the second book in the Choices Series.  In this one we are able to see the meeting and interactions between Brody, Declan, Eric, Seth, Jenna, and Quincey all from Brody's point of view.

I enjoyed being able to read how Brody's feelings started and evolve for Quincey.  I was amazed at how much Seth plays apart in trying to steer Brody away from Quincey in the beginning of the book.  Seth takes on a completely different character in this book than he was in the first book.  I enjoyed reading the conversations that Jenna had with Brody in this book as well.  

I felt sorry for Brody because he was trying not to have feelings for Quincey in the beginning because of her initial meetings and dates with Declan, who is Brody's friend and fraternity brother.  Unfortunately for Brody "Fate" had a different plan in mind for him, and when he finally starts to realize his true feelings for Quincey he decided to go with his heart.  He is scared to feel what he does, and worries about scaring her off all at the same time.  It is sweet how much he really pays attention to the small things that make Quincey happy and he really does want to work to get to know her and what makes her who she is.  My heart goes out to him for always kind of playing second fiddle in a sense, but yet he is still understanding and deals with everything in his own way and to the best of his ability.

Again this is a good series that we all can relate to in some way about growing up, finding love, and learning who we are.
