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?
4.5 Star Review by Ashley
Oh my swoon! The magic that Faith Andrews started (after breaking my heart) in Feel Again is back and better than ever. The opening of Freeing Destiny grabbed my attention and kept it through every twist and bump in the road. I loved getting to catch up with Gabby and Caleb and witness their love in the aftermath of all that they had been through. It was the celebration of their joy that caused Stella, Gabby's daughter, to start to question all of her plans.
I really liked Stella. She has this almost shy self confidence about her that draws you in. You can't help being enamored by her kindness, innocence and foot in mouth syndrome. Some of the things that came out of her mouth had me in stitches. Now, if I liked Stella, then I LOVED me some Jack. His patience and sweetness and sexiness and just good guyness made me fall for him as fast and hard as Stella did. There was one moment that really sealed the deal for me- when Jack told Stella no- and his reason why had me swooning my socks off. And Stella too! They are drawn to each other and although they can't quite explain how or why they feel this way after only knowing each other for such a short amount of time. I loved that Jack was there to walk beside Stella in her journey of self discovery. But he learned a few things about himself along the way as well. They knew going in that their time together was going to be limited but they can't deny what they feel. So, they decide they'll to do whatever it takes to make it work. They knew it wasn't going to be easy, and when someone catches wind of their happiness, things really spiral out of control.
WOW! This twist showed a facet to Faith Andrews' writing that will be a completely new experience for her seasoned readers. AND I loved every heart racing, jaw dropping moment of it. There were so many ways that situation could've played out and I was reading furiously to see how it would all play out. Freeing Destiny had a great mix of everything- humor, sexiness, sweetness and danger. The balance was perfect and I felt it all along with Jack and Stella. The hope, fear, happiness, desperation, anger and love- most of all the love. Trust me when I say that you will be so engrossed in Jack and Stella's story you won't realize that you've reached the end until you try to flip the page and there is nothing left to read!
