Release Day Blitz: Freeing Destiny by Faith Andrews

Cover Design: Najla Qamber/Najla Qamber Designs
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 by Jen Skewes

Freeing Destiny is the second book in the Fate series.  If you read Feel Again, this is Jack and Stella’s story.  As with every other book of Ms. Andrews I loved it.  I always look forward to her books.  I love the emotions she brings out in me and she creates such amazing and beautiful characters, and at times may throw one or two curveballs into the story as well.  Freeing Destiny is a beautiful love story about taking a chance on love, regardless of the circumstances and the fears. 

Stella is witnessing her mother’s happiness with a man for the first time in a long, since her father passed away.  While at her mother’s wedding her eyes meet with Jack’s, her new step father’s best friend.  From the moment she mets him she knows that there is something about him, she feels the pull towards him.  But there are so many reasons why her and Jack cannot be togehter no matter how much she feels the spark.  One very big reason being that Stella is moving back to New York in two weeks to start on the path that she paved for herself.    Starting a relationship now is out of the question.

Jack has never been the type to want to settle down and get married.  But when he sees the beautiful Stella from across the room everything changes for him.  He is attracted to her but it is so much more than that.  He feels this pull towards her and he does not want to let go. He wants to know her and spend time with her.  He knows that their time together is limited but he doesn’t care.  When their time is up he will do what it takes to make it work.  When it comes to Stella he is all in, even if it means risking his heart.  But that doesn’t mean that Stella feels the same way.  She has her own reservations regardless of how she feels about him.  When Stella finally agrees to spend more time wth Jack and to see where it goes, what will happen when it is time for her to leave.  Will they both be left with a broken heart or will they find a way to make it work?

I loved this book.  Jack and Stella just fit so perfectly together.  Jack is hot and sexy but he is also a very loving and caring man who was very patient with Stella.  He understood her fears and why she was afraid to get close to him but he just knew in his heart that they were meant to be together. 

Stella is the type of person that doesn’t just fly by the seat of her pants.  She has a plan and Jack never fit into that plan.  But she knows that she is falling fast and hard for this man and has some very tough decisions to make.  Decisions that may not just affect her but sometimes love is worth taking the risk for.  When Stella is with Jack she feels it in her heart, how much she wants to be with this man.  And sometimes your path in life takes a detour and you have to decide which way to go.  And for Jack and Stella this was their biggest hurdle. 

I loved watching these two fall in love and loved the moments that they shared together.  Jack was just so loving and such the perfect man.  Once again Faith Andrews made me fall in love with characters that I did not want to let go of.  There were a few moments that completely surprised me and I wondered how it would play out.  But in the end she left me with a huge cheesey smile on my face because the ending (sigh) was just perfect.

I also loved that we had the chance to see the supporting characters that we loved from the first book.  It was great to see Caleb and Gabriella, and Nina and her boyfriend Ryan.  I love the relationship that Stella has with both her mother and sister.  She has such a strong bond with the both of them and I loved the touching moments between them.

Once again Faith has created a beautiful love story.  Stella and Jack’s story was so touching.  To see these two fall in love and decide to take a chance on love even though they were so unsure of how it would all work out in the end will touch your heart.  Jack and Stella found a love they never expected but sometimes the risk is worth it and ends up changing everything in the best way possible.  Another fantastic job!!
