Have you ever heard of the old Celtic legends of the Fae—beautiful, magical, and deadly creatures that have a love of messing with humans just for kicks and giggles?

Welcome to my world.

What started out as a strange assignment, lead to one of the most gruesome murder mysteries of our times. My friends and I are set and determined to find out who is killing off Fae and Witches alike.

Couple of problems in the way – I hate the Fae and the Prince of the Dark Fae is bound and determined that I work for him. He’s a rude, overbearing egotistical ass with a compulsive need to possess, dominate and control me. Oh—did I mention that he is absolutely sex-on-a-stick gorgeous and he makes me feel things that I never ever wanted to feel for a Fae... every time he touches me or looks at me with those dangerous golden eyes he seems to pull me further in under his spell, despite my better judgment.

My friends and I can’t trust anyone and nothing is as it seems on the surface—not even me.

4 Destined Stars!

Fighting Destiny was an exciting, fun, sexy page turner that I couldn’t put down. Some parts needed a LOT of work, such as multiple grammar mistakes and a few abrupt scene shifts that had me going back to the beginning of the paragraph to see if I missed something, but overall, I definitely enjoyed this read!

I would have loved more world building. I felt like too much of it was skipped over and we didn’t get a clear picture of how the Otherworlders came to be so prominent in the Human world. But the creative story itself, more than made up for the lack of world backstory. Not to mention, the characters were so much fun! All of them.

In this world, Humans know about the Otherworld as the Fae, Witches and Vampires live amongst them, with the Guild there to protect the Humans. Synthia is a Witch, working for the Guild and she’s just been assigned to steal the Dark Prince’s crown right from underneath his nose. Unfortunately, things don’t go as planned, the past comes back to haunt her and in the end, her life and the life of her coven is irrevocably changed.

Synthia, aka Syn, has a deeply tragic past that’s left her distrustful and suspicious of everyone and everything, especially Fae. But she gives everything she has to protect others, especially when it comes to her small coven of three. I loved her snark, her fire and her overall character. She was sassy and didn’t take shade from anyone, including Ryder, the Dark Prince, who has decided she is destined for his bed! 

This book is told mostly from Synthia’s POV, but we get some of Ryder’s thoughts, which was eye opening and so enjoyable. He’s got a lot going on, secrets he’s holding close and walls he’s not willing to let fall.

Watching as Syn and Ryder fought against their feelings, their hatred for one another and then ultimately, giving in and falling into bed together was sexy, super hot and seriously intense. I loved the slow build the author gave us. There was so much sexual tension and the build up was fantastic! Their chemistry was AHHHH-MAZING!

And behind all the sexiness, there is intrigue, secrets to uncover, gruesome murders to solve involving Fae and Witches ... and it all seems to revolve around Syn’s past, making her a target, too.

I really enjoyed this read. I fell in love with Syn immediately and I loved Ryder's mystery and intense brooding. That Fae is straight up alpha and determined to get Syn, who intrigues him so much, under him in his bed! Yum! And after the cliffy at the end of this book, I’m ecstatic the next book is already waiting on my ereader!
