Anyone who has read my reviews knows thqt I am sucker for a rock star (well, not literally, but if they opportunity arose, well, who knows hehehe) so picking up A Little Like Destiny was a no brainer for me.
We've all had that dream/daydream where we get to meet our favourite rock star, and this is what happens to Reese. She is a quiet and reserved, but goes all out when she meets Mark for one night of passion.
Or is it?
Then she meets Brian (who for me in the end I liked a lot more than Mark). She is falling for Brian, but lusting after his brother. Ugh, and this, for me is where things started to fall apart a little.
It was not the fact they were brothers, it was more the fact the way she was leading both guys on. Don't get me wrong, I could understand her being torn between the two, however there was something about the way Reese went about things that irked me.
I got to about 60% and I had to roll my eyes. By 70% I was telling both buys to run run away.
I think Reese just needed to grow up and grow a pair! But this could just be me.
My heart hurt for the two men she was stringing along, and I just wanted to hug them both.
Now, don't get me wrong, I did like the story, it was just her!
We are left on a bit of a cliffhanger with A Little Like Destiny, but the second part comes out in September, so it is not too long before we get our conclusion.
As much as things irritated me, I am invested in finding out what happens with Reese, Mark and Brian.
Reese is a school teacher in Vegas and is getting the opportunity to meet Mark Ashton who just happens to be the rock star she has majorly crushed on for years. Reese’s friend is making all of this happen by getting the backstage passes for the girls to meet this heartbreaker. Reese has been to Vail concerts before but this time she would have sworn that the sexy rocker was actually making eye contact with her a few times during the concert but then again don’t most girls hope that the rocker is singing just to them.
When Reese meets Mark face to face she is feeling this strange and overpowering connection and isn’t sure if he is feeling the same thing so she just brushes it off. When Reese is given the chance to leave the venue with Mark, she does what most women would do…she went even if it was for just one night. Within Reese’s mind and heart she felt this crazy connection with Mark and would have sworn he felt the same. They seemed to speak to each other about things you wouldn’t just tell anyone so maybe this is why she thought there was some kind of connection. Once morning is starting to break Reese figures that this is all status quo for the rocker according to all the things she’s read so she wants to leave on her own terms before he tells her to go.
As she gets off the elevator with her tear stained face she runs into a brick wall…that brick wall’s name is Brian Fox who just happens to be the next big up and comer businessman in Vegas. After declining his offer for coffee they meet by chance again and this time she gives in to his offer for dinner. Even with the heavy heart she has right now Brian is a real deal with looks that could be on a magazine cover and who seems to have his life right on track for success.
Don’t let the cliffhanger stop you from reading this fantastic rock romance. This author has thrown so much at you that you just have to keep turning those pages to see what all the secrets are and whose heart is going to be broken.
I received this ARC for a freely given and honest review.
Oh the confusion and absolute nightmare of a choice to have to make! Who to choose? Just who? I have fallen in love with both men in this story; the super sexy, lusted after, superstar singer, the temptingly, gorgeously unattainable Mark? Or the equally beautiful, totally adorable, totally committed, full on in love with you and fully attainable (but really second best) Brian? I am in a complete daze as to who Reese should pick. Why, oh why, can't she have both? A simple solution really but, obviously it's a hell of a complicated decision to make.
I'm hooked on this book; I can feel the push and pull that poor Reese is going through. It is a very tough thing and my bloomin' emotions are shot!
I have never read a book by Lisa Suzanne before but I am waiting for the next one with baited breath; that's for sure. I thoroughly enjoyed the ride this story took me on; this book is very well written, and kept me reading frantically to find out what happens next. A fantastic must read.
