Destiny…it’s really an interesting thought isn’t it…destiny.
Loralei Harper’s destiny was determined before her birth. It was very simple. She was expected to graduate from high school, marry Declan Sharp, and have two kids. She would stay at home with them, while her husband worked on the family farm. But the funny thing about destiny is…it can change in the blink of an eye. Now Loralei has to figure out what to do when everything changes.
Declan Sharp, a sweet country boy, grew up with Loralei. Their parents couldn’t have planned their relationship any better. Loralei was the love of his life and their future was bright, but sometimes life gets in the way of your plans.
Jaxon Daniels, a pierced, tattooed, badass with a gentle soul, just wanted to get out of the city and relax in the country for a little while. The last thing he was looking for was right in front of him. With skeletons in his closet, will he be able to hold on to the woman he loves, when the past comes out to play?
Cade Walker, a cocky cowboy, never gave love a second thought. Sex? Now that was a different story. After a drunken night, all of that changes when he feels something for Loralei…with his heart. This good ole boy learns that alls fair in love and war.
What happens when all of these lives cross paths? Whose destiny will change and who will get their happily ever after?
From the beginning I was drawn into this book. Loralei and Declan were meant to be. The stars lined up for them and life was a perfect little slice of heaven. Having been friends since birth, sharing the same birthday and being around each other almost 24 hours a day, it was no surprise that they ended up together. Destiny was theirs. Until it wasn’t. I felt for Loralei. I felt for Declan. I was emotional mess and I wasn’t even past the first chapter of the book! But Loralei had more surprises on the horizon and that is where I fell in love with this book.
It had been almost 10 years since the night that changed her destiny and Loralei was a in a good place. At least she thought so. That was until Jaxson Daniels showed up on her ranch and her destiny seemed to go in a whole new direction. Now a single mom and running the family business, Loralei doesn’t have time for romance. She is still stuck in her destiny gone wrong life and wondering where her destiny is head. Jaxson Daniels is running. But from what? He’s secretive, a total mystery and trouble for Loralei – so she thinks. Jaxson falls for Loralei the moment he lays eyes on her. But can a tattooed city boy fit into a ranchers lifestyle?
This book was fun, exciting, heart wrenching and inspirational. Life can continue, with its ups and downs, twists and turns. We just need to learn to let go. There is heartbreaks, budding romances, betrayals, twists, turns and redemption all rolled into this story. At times I was on this roller coaster ride that had me dizzy with anticipation. I absolutely loved every moment in it!

For me, listening to music while reading brings a whole new experience. It makes the experience more real. You feel the emotions, you know how they feel. Even months after reading the book, I can hear a song and immediately recall a scene or a character connected to a song. I am thrilled to give you the playlist for Destined to Change.
