On a whim, Gabriel MacSweeny bought a carnival when the old owner wanted to pass on. Even in the company of self-called Freaks, he is wary of revealing himself as a shifter, but when the fortune teller, Adeline is threatened he can no longer keep that part of himself under wraps. Since Gabriel took over, Adeline has felt drawn to him and soon the two of can't help but act on their passions.
Sometimes all you need is something light and short, and that's what Gabe's Fortune is perfect for. There are links to the other books in the series, but they're only small and mostly linked to character names and what's happened to the world (basically it ended then people went back to living like from a different time). There wasn't as much of it in this book as in the previous two, but the combination of future and past works really well!
There was definte chemistry between Gabriel and Adeline from the moment they first see each other. This is a fated mates style book, so that is to be expected, but the two of them actually seemed quite calm about the whole thing at first, even if they did want to rip each other's clothes off.
I liked the family feel to the carnival too. Gabe's family were important to him (which was shown in the other books!) and it was good seeing that Adeline had that too. It gave the story a bit more depth, especially with how protective Betsy was.
This was a great quick read!
