My Thoughts:

4.5 stars!

"How can you know passion if you don't deny yourself the thing you want most?" 

Huh... you know how unconsciously we always compare new books to ones we've read before? well, here you can't. Because Meeting Destiny is completely unique. Different.

And for those who read a lot, like me, different is GREAT. 

Let's make it simple. I'll divide my review in sections before I start with my not so uncommon non sense rambling XD

Cover: Beautiful! I can totally picture Lauren as the girl in it. 

Plot: As I said, unique. Mesmerizing and intriguing since page 1. Sometimes books take a while to become interesting, MEETING DESTINY draw me in from the very first paragraph.
I admit that being a paranormal book, at the beginning I was waiting for something paranormal to happen but Lauren's story is so absorbing and captivating that after a few pages I didn't mind at all. The way events develop keep you at the edge of your seat the whole book and the twists and turns are unimaginable.
The romance is cute, sexy. The tension between them is undeniable but it's a clean romance. Though, some moments left me breathless. *woot woot*

" It wouldn't matter if he turned out to be a serial killer, my certainty that he was definitely the man of my dreams was cemented, and I was undeniably destined to be with him" 

Who wouldn't kill for that feeling?!?!?!


Lauren is the kind of heroine that I like. Strong, impulsive and witty. She is not perfect, nobody wants to read about a perfect girl anyway! Sometimes she appeared to me a little pushy with Max especially at the beginning but of course, she has a MAJOR reason for that :)

Seth: he annoyed me a little but I can relate to him 100% so after a while I started to comprehend his POV and liked him more.

Max: Oh my! *sigh* delicious, yummy, sexy, swoon worthy companion for Lauren. From the start, I liked him. A mysterious air around him only made him more appealing. He is also, considerate, protective, smart but with those flaws that make you smile when you read about them. 

Rachael: She is a great supporting character, has an important role in one of those very crucial moments. 

Writing: Superb! lovely, lovely, so smooth, it flows effortless. The dialogues are dinamic, enterteining and fast paced. 

The end: OMG! What is going to happen next? I have so many questions! 

Would I recommend it? ABSOLUTELY! It's on my FAVORITE's SHELF and can't wait to read the sequel!!!

  1. Wonderful review. I've not heard of this book, but do love the dream to reality types. It's awesome that it can't be compared. Adding to my TBR. The cover is beautiful too :)
