Review: A Meeting of Fate by S.L Armstrong & K. Piet

Overture: Episode 1: A Meeting of Fate (Immortal Symphony #1) by S.L Armstrong & K. Piet
Storm Moon Press
Short Story: 39pgs
4 Pants Off

You think you know the story of Dorian Gray, but you're wrong. The real story didn't end the way Oscar Wilde penned; in fact, it hasn't ended at all. The ageless beauty of Dorian Gray walks now in our world of cellphones and lattes and internet porn. His latest conquest is Gabriel Lawrence, a paranormal investigator with a secret or two of his own. But the trouble with a life as long as Dorian's is that the skeletons are threatening to overrun the closet... and not all of them want to stay dead.

Season 1
Overture introduces Gabriel to the truth of a world he had only suspected, where ghost hunting is the least of his worries. And at the heart of it all is the mysterious and fascinating Dorian Gray, as though he'd stepped out of the pages of the book bearing his name. But if he has, he hasn't come through alone. And this figure from a past Dorian had though long behind him bears a grudge nurtured for a hundred years and intends to tear down everything Dorian has built, a piece at a time.

Episode 1: A Meeting of Fate
Gabriel Lawrence, a paranormal investigator from America, finds himself in London chasing down a supposedly haunted artifact. While there, he meets a man who calls himself Dorian Gray, who may not match the description from that famous story, but certainly has the attitude. And the seduction. And because ghost hunting isn't exactly a lucrative venture, Dorian's invitation into his world of opulence, decadence, and wealth may just prove too tempting for Gabriel to resist!

And so this book opened with a bang, and my eyes and pants went into a sexy coma. I am such a huge fan of K. Piet & S.L Armstrong, and I look forward to their edgy and unapologetic writing. A Meeting of Fate is the first story in a serial involving the infamous Dorian Grey, a character I loathed and also kind of love at the same time. With a modern spin, I have to say I love this vision of Dorian Grey. He's all types of sexy and a whole lot of wicked.

As I said, the book begins with a very sexy bang. Told from the pov of a woman who is getting fantastic sex from Dorian and another sexy man, from the very beginning it clear that sex is a tool for Dorian and it something he enjoys immensely. This power he has over people fills him with such a high, and it is something he just can't get enough of. There is a lot of sex for such a short story but it never feels like PWP, sex is the very foundation of Dorian's character and it builds for things to come. Dorian Grey is a charming, sexy, immortal type of man.

Then comes Gabriel who is a paranormal investigator and has a dead twin Michael who he still talks with. Already, his character is an interesting one and when he meets Dorian sparks begin to fly. As the reader you know what the gist is with Mr Grey already, so I couldn't help feeling like Gabriel is setting himself up for doom but the magnetism of a seasoned seducer like Dorian is hard to resist and Gabriel didn't stand a chance.

As the first in the series its mostly a set up of things to come and man, am I excited. I look forward to emotional progression Gabriel and Dorian's relationship, the excitement of Gabriel's day job, and working in a dead twin with some doubts and you have a intriguing/exciting read. The writing is spot on, and I just can't wait to dive into the second episode and lose myself in the immortal beauty of a Mr Dorian Grey. A fantastic start to a brand new serial by a dynamic duo writing team, a solid 4 Pants Off with a future that looks like I might lose them entirely, and I can't freaking wait. Let the awesome fucking commence :D

HEADS UP: There is female parts, as some of you guys like to call it. So don`t go buying it, then acting all surprised, and then go on and complain. Dorian is fabulously sexually fluid and he loves the pussy.
