Words to live by:
Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.
Don’t break the rules.
I’d managed to fail at both by fraternizing with the enemy’s brother. Guess I’d followed in my mother’s footsteps by ignoring all the rules when it came to love.
Mom was marrying a man only six years older than me. A man who was also her student. But the biggest surprise that came out of their wedding wasn’t my new stepdad’s academic status or his age.
It was Jack Davis—my stepfather’s best friend.
Jack was the guy who could change the whole game. He was quite possibly my soul mate. But time and circumstance were against us—there was no easy way around it. I was moving back to New York in two weeks and his sister, Aubrey, was the one person my family hated most in this world. How would his sister—the enemy—deal with another Edwards girl claiming what she believed was hers? The idea of letting Jack go crippled me. Would I have to cut ties with the only man I’d ever let into my heart?
Freeing Destiny is a beautifully written book, about two amazing characters filled with courage, fear and taking leaps for of course, love. This is a dual point of view read (which I love to read) with characters that were very easy to connect with and just as easy to fall in love with! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed each book I’ve read by Faith Andrews that I’ve read to date and Freeing Destiny is no different.
Jack is funny, smart, sexy, witty and so freaking funny. Stella is smart, determined, full of life and I think just a beautiful soul. Meeting at her mother’s wedding, who happened to marry Jack’s best friend, Jack meets Stella. There is instant chemistry between these two. There is only one problem. Stella is set to move across country with her family very soon and that doesn’t leave these two very much time together. When Stella takes a leap of faith and stays back, while her family moves you watch her and Jack’s connection bloom even more.
What happens when something can deter your road to your destiny? Will Jack and Stella’s destiny be sidetracked or will these two make it through the bad weather?
“Stop fighting it, Stella. There are certain things in life that happen for a reason. You and I are going to happen – no matter what the fucking purpose or result entails.” – Yes JACK, just YES!!!!
This was a quick read with all the feels of a romance book. The fun, the swoon, the banter and of course you have a small touch of drama mixed into all this sweetness. 5 Stars for Freeing Destiny
