I knew from the moment I first saw him he was the one. The only boy I could ever want.
The only boy I could ever love.
They say he’s bad for me.
But I know he’s not.
Until the day he rejects me.
And breaks my heart.

Everything changes in the blink of an eye. My entire life as I’ve known it is…gone. Secrets are revealed. Promises once made are irrevocably broken. There’s no way my family can get back to what we once were.

So when Nicholas Fairfield walks back into my life like he never left it, I’m furious.
Thrilled. Irritated. Excited.


Despite my confusion, I want to be with him. I love him. But danger lurks where we least expect it. Someone will do whatever it takes to tear us apart. All I know is: I won’t let them.

Because Nick Fairfield? He’s mine.

*My Thoughts*

***I received a review copy for an honest review***

What a conclusion to Nick and Reverie's love story! Some time has passed after that cliffhanger in His Reverie. Nick and Reverie has grown since summer, and now, they each face life without the other. Have their feelings for each other changed? Well...we soon find out in this exciting conclusion. Of course, it is necessary to read His Reverie before reading Her Destiny.

Nick and Reverie face their personal demons alone, but still can't forget what they had/have together. Life has changed for Reverie...from privileged to surviving. The same could be said about Nick. On one hand, Reverie's life spirals downward and she rebels. With the help and support of her brother, Evan, and friends, Reverie finds the strength and courage to survive and to better her life. On the other hand, Nick is still "stuck" in the town that keeps bringing him down. Of course, he "plans" to "get out"; he just needs to get that "push" to act on it...and that "push" is Reverie.

Although both Nick and Reverie have different life circumstances, they both are faced with the uncertainty and growing up they had to face on their own. When they do come together again, they are faced with their confused feelings for each other, the uncertainty of their futures, and that mystery and darkness that seems to never leave them. Only when they get closer to the truth does the danger becomes more obvious. Faced with mystery and danger, Nick and Reverie comes to learn that they can't deny what they feel for each other.

I really enjoyed how much Nick and Reverie has grown in Her Destiny. Like any coming-of-age story, this one involved growing up from a sheltered life and learning how to live and survive in the real world. Both these characters have been through their own trials and obstacles that forced them to grow up before their time. I loved how some of the chapters stayed true to the "diary entries" format; however, Nick's were unsent emails...haha!! It gave me the feel of being "in their head" and finding out what they were thinking and feeling. Not only was this book filled with passion and hearbreak, the romance between them was still there. And...the climax of the story...well, it was dark, dangerous and filled with suspense! I definitely enjoyed this more than His Reverie. With that said, Her Destiny kept me reading from beginning to end.
