Check out my review for: His Reverie (Reverie #1)
NOTE: This is a "New Adult" novel. Due to mature content this title is recommended for ages 17+
Synopsis: 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.
Review: 3 Stars - Her Destiny is the second title in the Reverie two book series by Monica Murphy. These are not stand alone titles and should be read in order for readers to understand the story and characters lives that these books focus on.
At the ending of His Reverie readers were left wondering what was about to happen next. Was there a cliffhanger? Oh heck yeah and it was a doozy! Nick wanted nothing more than to protect Reverie at all costs and Reverie could see that Nick was a better person than anyone else saw, even himself. So when the unthinkable happens to Nick he takes a path to save her and it’s throughout this title that we see the aftermath of choices the two made and continue to make which lead them to yet more trouble.
So, hmmmm…. Where to start? Well, I liked this story. I liked the first book and the second, but I didn’t love them. I questioned a few times during my read of both books why certain things happened and found myself confused more than once. It felt a bit rough around the edges and kind of rushed in parts too.
The characters had their ups and downs which added to the rough, or rushed parts even further. Also these two face more trouble than most and I wondered when the heck they’d finally get a break.
The overall story from beginning to end was good and I’m glad that I had a chance to read Nick and Reverie’s story, a chance to get to know these two characters but I was wishing for something a bit more. The chemistry they had worked well and I’m glad that they not only seemed to fit exactly what the other needed but that they had each other in a time of their lives that they needed it most.
If the story had been a bit more polished then I would have been able to rate both of these books higher because in the end it was interesting how these two characters came together.
I believe that fans of contemporary titles between opposite characters from different sides of the tracks will enjoy these two titles. It is considered Young Adult, however I would put this firmly into the “New Adult” category due to language, drinking, sex and violence.
