By Detra Fitch TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Amy Bright is the well-known owner of the bookstore, Under the Covers. She is also well-known as Destiny's best matchmaker. Her two best girlfriends are finally getting married and Amy is pleased that it is due, in part, to her. But who would help the matchmaker make a match? Amy already knows the man she wants - Logan Whitaker. Amy is completely gaa-gaa over the good looking fireman. Problem is that Amy is too shy to tell her longtime friend how she feels about him.

A fireman is all Logan had ever wanted to be, but after a tragedy on the job, he is rethinking his career choice. After a month of depression, Logan is finally getting better - thanks to Amy. She never gave up on him. Logan is beginning to notice Amy in a different way. Somehow, when he was not looking, Freckles had blossomed. Logan probably would have continued to look differently at Amy if things in town had remained the same as always. Instead, Anna Romo shows up in town. Anna is the little sister of his best friend, Mike. She had been abducted at the age of five. Now, after twenty-five years missing, Anna has returned. And she is knock-out hot!

Feeling unable to compete with Anna's beauty, Amy is left in the shadows. Knowing she must do something or forever regret it, Amy decides to become Logan's secret admirer, sending him sensual love letters. The steamy letters do manage to capture his attention, but unless something happens soon, Amy will lose her heart's desire to Anna and have no one but her cats to love.

* ONE STAR! I have always enjoyed stories by Toni Blake. This is the first time that I feel let down. I cannot help but find it too hard to believe that no one had ever thought of Amy as a potential girlfriend. She was pretty, inside and out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great contemporary romance 14 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
God I loved Amy so much. Out of all the romantic heroines out there, Amy is probably the one I could relate to the most in just about every way except I don't have a sexy fireman best friend to be in love with (anyone want to lend me theirs?!). Loved her love of Austen and cats <3.

In spite of my love for Amy, this book has to lose a star because of Logan's idiocy in the middle of the book.

By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I just recently discovered Toni Blake and finished all the Desiny Novels in 5 days. The stories and characters are amazing. They are real people with real issues. I love how Toni continues each characters story with the next book. they will make you laugh, cry and want to move to Destiny and be a part of this town.

4.0 out of 5 stars It is such a happiness when good people get together-and they always do. -Jane Austen/Emma 5 May 2012
By Cherise Everhard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Amy Bright is Destiny, Ohio's bookstore owner, cat care giver and the local matchmaker. She is helping her two best girlfriends prepare for their upcoming weddings, while trying to get her new cat Austen acquainted with her old cat Mr. Knightley. In the midst of all this her best guy friend, Logan, is going through a tough time and she is trying to get him to get his life back in order. But in an unexpected moment Logan kisses her and changes how she sees him and herself. If that wasn't enough to keep these characters busy, a ghost from the past pops up and changes everything.

I love this series and I was really excited to read Amy's happily ever after. This book was next to impossible to set down and at about 2 am last night/this morning I had a 15 minute debate with myself about whether or not I should stay up all night and finish reading. Finally, the fact that I had family portraits today won out, after deciding red, puffy and tired eyes wouldn't look good, I had to set it aside. But even after I went to bed, I couldn't get Amy and Logan out of my head.

Logan is a bit of an ass and I at times I wanted to jump through the pages and punch him in the nose, or the crotch. He could be so sweet and caring one minute, then a clueless, spineless, jackass the next. It was frustrating. The character of Anna was also a source of anxiety for me. I really tried to sympathize, to empathize with her, but I really couldn't. She was selfish and self-centered and I wanted her to go back from whence she came! I could have done without her interference in this story, and only at the very end did I ever get even the mildest of lukewarm feelings for her. I am guessing she will be starring in her own Destiny novel one day soon, I am sure Ms. Blake will make me like her then.

Amy's heart is pure and to watch her finally fall in love was as sweet and as hard as I thought it would be. Her road to happily ever after wasn't an easy one. But in the end all the heartache and struggles pay off.

2.0 out of 5 stars It didn't ring true for me 21 Sep 2012
By Agi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Amy is the cat-loving owner of the Destiny bookstore Under the Covers. In the previous novels she has been portrayed as a sweet matchmaker and good friend. In this novel we find out that she is a virgin and hadn't been on a date since she broke up with a high school boyfriend.

Logan is a Destiny firefighter and Amy's childhood friend. He had recently experienced a traumatic fire where he lost friends and he is recovering from the fallout. When the story starts Amy snaps him out of his funk and he kisses her but immediately blames it on the alcohol.

So...I really didn't like this story and I'm a Toni Blake fan. There were so many elements that didn't work for for me.

1. Amy and Logan have been very close friends since childhood and their newfound attraction doesn't seem likely to me because they've known each other for SO many years and never saw each other that way at all. They were next door neighbors and played together as kids, with no break in their friendship over all that time. I can't imagine that having known each other so young they wouldn't have fallen prey to the Westermarck effect. I'm not a fan of the fact that all of a sudden Amy developed all of these deep sexual and emotional feelings for Logan after one drunken semi-kiss.

2. Amy's situation sems very contrived to me. She is described as being pretty and fit. She seems to have a very modest sense of style but I can't really imagine that no one has asked her out on a date in a decade plus just because she doesn't wear sexy clothes. She is a lonely romantic but she isn't really shy. She has quite a few friends, her own business, and ties to her community so I can't imagine that she hadn't been getting some offers intermittently. There is one guy who is Lucky's friend who flirts with her and it seems somewhat incredible to me that this hadn't happened before. She is certainly outgoing enough when she matches people up so she clearly has some people skills. The 34 year-old virgin storyline just doesn't ring true and Amy is a bit too prudish for my liking. If someone else had kissed her before Logan maybe she would have fallen in love with them instead.

3. Logan is not a likeable character in this book. The fire that caused his withdrawl seemed pretty gory but his attitude didn't really make me respect him as a person. Furthermore he isn't even that into Amy untill well into the book and he fights it so hard that I didn't want them to end up together. He's interested in Anna when she shows up but then ends up stringing her along when "it doesn't feel right." Overall I didn't really feel that much passion between Logan and Amy. Even the sex scenes were tepid compared to the chemistry Toni Blake has given us before. I really liked Amy as a character and wanted her to get swept off her feet. In the end she had to put herself out there for him way more than he did for her and I just felt sad. I kept hoping that the "real" love interest would show up and snap Amy out of her obsession with Logan. The way that Logan's feelings were described it seems to me that if Amy had never expressed an interest and had fallen for someone else instead he would have never missed her or thought of her as a viable mate.

Anyway, these are just some things out of many that bothered me about the book. I hope Toni Blake brings back the chemistry from earlier novels because the last two books fell flat for me. I'm hoping that Tessa's brother will come back from Afganistan and maybe get paired up with Anna. Lucky's badass biker friend is also a good candidate for a story but I think pairing him up with Anna would be a bit of a cliche. Toni Blake is a good writer and I will keep reading her books because even though I didn't like this one, it was still better than alot of what's out there.

3.0 out of 5 stars Half and Half 11 Sep 2012
By MoranReviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Amy Bright is the best match-maker in Destiny, Ohio, but has no love life of her own. Until one night she's kissed, and she falls head over heels in love with her best friend, Logan Whitaker. But Logan has his own demons he's trying to work out, and are these two ready to take that leap from friends to... more?

The first half of this book was hauntingly sweet and addicting. The second half just seemed to be filled with miscommunication and weak conflict. Very strange dialog too. In saying that, friends to lovers plots are hard to pull off, and this felt realistically done. This is my first book by Blake, and I probably won't hesitate to buy more. She has a real knack for underlying emotions and setting her scene. The secondary characters pulled this through.
