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?

Review Copy Provided by AuthorWhat do you do when you have your life mapped out and you meet someone that makes you question all of those plans?
That's the issue that Stella Edwards runs into when she meets Jack at her mother's wedding. Stella, 21, and her entire family are on the verge of moving from California to New York when she and Jack make an instant connection. They have two weeks to see where things go.
I loved watching Jack and Stella together! Yes, they had an instant connection with each other, but it wasn't smooth sailing in the beginning. There were lots of stops and starts as they both tried to guard themselves while falling in love at the same time. I appreciated that Jack was truly one of the good guys and would own up to bad behavior. It didn't take long for both characters to realize that what they had was more than just an attraction - the question then was what to do about it. Stella had a moment early on that I just loved:
"San Francisco was my current home. New York was my soon-to-be home. Jack was my heart's home."
I think I even fell a little bit in love watching how Jack treated Stella. From the reason behind his nickname for her to how he approached the physical part of their relationship telegraphed that this was it for him and I really rooted for them to figure things out.
The cast of characters in Freeing Destiny all appear in the prior book, Feeling Again, but you can easily read this book on it's own. Having said that - I would suggest reading Feeling Again first. Some of the interplay between Stella, Jack, and the supporting cast makes more sense with the back story from the first book in the series.
This is an incredibly well written book that covers a lot of emotional ground. You have a young woman working to find her place in the world and a couple trying to figure out if a relationship will work. There is the interplay between sisters who have done everything together and the desire to not disappoint a parent. Just with all of that you have a great story that you don't want to put down. Ms. Andrews then surprises us with an element of suspense when Jack's sister, Aubrey, makes an appearance and proceeds to rip everyone's world apart. Freeing Destiny was a book I was looking forward to reading and it definitely lived up to expectations.
