I was really looking forward to reading this book, the synopsis drew me in and once I met the characters in Feel Again I knew I would love their story.
I really liked the characters in this book, well everyone except the wicked sister! There were a few times Stella kind of bugged me but overall I related to both characters and felt a connection to them.
I loved Jack, although there were a few times where his sister was concerned he was a bit naive and couldn’t see her for what she was but at the same time she’s his family so I couldn’t blame him for that! Jack had so much patience with Stella and I loved the fact he was such a caring and loveable character.
This book took a totally unexpected turn, I was shocked with the way things went at one particular part and I couldn't get my head around it! The story had lost a little steam coming up to that part and the things that took place completely revived it!
page will keep you reading long into the night, I was defiantly hooked. the characters were brilliantly written as well
as the story, which flowed effortlessly

“There weren’t enough tomorrows.We were running out of them and I’d be damned if I would let that get in our way.”
“I need you, Stella. I need you so much I don’t know how I’ll survive even one even one second without you, but I will, because you’re mine. You didn’t know it then, but you were mine from that night at your mother’s wedding. It hasn’t been long and skeptics will be skeptics, but I don’t give a s*** what anyone else has to say. I’ve never felt this alive. You’re it for me, baby. Here, there, wherever. I will make this work if it’s the very last thing I ever do. I promise you that.”
Freeing Destiny is told from dual points of view and follows the story of Stella and Jack. Stella had her whole life planned out. She was supposed to be moving to New York in just a few weeks to start a promising new career. What she didn’t plan on was Jack. From the moment she met Jack, she couldn’t deny the sparks and connection between them. He made her want things she never thought of before and had her questioning all of her carefully laid out plans. The more time that Stella and Jack spent together, the more she realized that they just didn’t have enough time….They needed more time. So, Stella decides to take a leap of faith. She’s going to delay her plans and take a chance on Jack. All is going well, but as their time together is inching closer to an end, these two will be hit with a shocking twist…..Jack’s evil sister, Aubrey has returned. Aubrey has caused enough problems for Stella’s family and her return spells nothing but disaster. Will Jack and Stella get the HEA they so desperately want? Or will Aubrey find a way to destroy the one thing that makes Jack happy?
Freeing Destiny was a quick and easy read for me. I was pulled in from the very first page. I fell in love with Stella’s character almost instantly. She was smart and determined; super easy to connect with and you could really feel the love that she had for her family. Jack entering the picture made her question everything and made her come out of her carefully planned box. I adored Jack. Yes, wasn’t perfect, but once he met Stella, he knew she was the one. He knew her time in California was limited, but that didn’t stop him wanting to see if what he and Stella had was real or not. Stella was so unlike the women that he was used to. She real and had an innocence about her that just drew him in. The two of them together was like an unstoppable force. They knew they shouldn’t get attached, but their feelings were so strong that they couldn’t deny what was happening to them. I loved watching the two of them fall in love and try to navigate their way through things.
Freeing Destiny is the second book in the Fate series by Faith Andrews, but it can totally be read as a stand-alone. This book can easily be read in one sitting and keeps you captivated the entire time. Freeing Destiny is a wonderful book about first love, hope, courage, and taking a leap of faith. This story is well written and has no shortage of laughs, romance, steam and of course, no story would be perfect without a little drama. And I gotta tell you, this book did have some exciting twists and turns. Those twists had me holding my breath right until the very end.
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!!
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.
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!
When Stella's mom gets remarried Stella is excited but also scared, scared that life won't be the same. She missed her dad SO much. But meeting a man at the wedding calms her fears, the bad thing, though, Stella and her family are all moving back to their roots in 2 weeks. Back to New York, halfway across the continent. Which sick because there's something about this new man that is reeling her in. Stella is the level headed one in the family, but not when it comes to this man. A man who makes her take the jumps and steps in a new direction. A direction she needs to find herself. Destiny might not always hit at the best of times but it's the way you work it out that makes it right..
The title, Freeing Destiny, couldn't be any more perfect for this twist of fate romance. The whit, the laughter, the heartache, the drama, the aggrivation of certain people, this book had it all. And I absolutely adored it!!
