He stole her lyrics, and then he stole her heart.
Lyric Cassidy is off the tour, lost as to what her next career move will be, and certain that she’ll never love again after Wolf. All because of a social media scandal that left her with no choice but to pack up and face the consequences. When she learns that the fate of her career is in her hands, she has a difficult decision to make. Step back on the tour bus with Wolf and deal with the mess she left behind, or end her contract early and lose her job at Perform Live?
Wolf’s shattered heart finds no resolve in giving Lyric a chance to come back on tour. He can never be with her again. Not after she walked away. Conflicted with wants and needs, he struggles to remember who Wolf was before Lyric. That’s what he needs to become again. Maybe then his heart will be safe. Or maybe there’s no hope for the damaged.
But with stolen dreams, betrayals, and terrifying threats—no one’s heart is safe. Not even the ones that may be destined to be together.
“I might love her more than she loves me. I’m just not ready to give her those words again. Not until she fully trusts me. Maybe I’m a jerk, but I’m holding those words hostage. ”
First, you MUST read Dangerous Hearts prior to reading Destined Hearts. that said, Destined Hearts is one of my most anticipated releases for this summer. Wolf and Lyric captured me from chapter one in Dangerous Hearts and we were left at such a critical moment when Dangerous Hearts ended. K.K. Allen did a great service in picking up pretty much right where it left off and wasted no time letting us back into Wolf and Lyrics heads and hearts. There is a lot of reflecting on both their parts, how and why the fell for each other and reasoning through the fiery crash of circumstances that separated them.
Destined Hearts is very much a story about a young woman working through the childhood disappointments and hurts and finding forgiveness where is was due ( not that it’s always earned nor given). But trying is was the only way she would ever move forward. She has to give up the pain that she holds in, and give over trust. I thought it was a beautiful story, how she expresses herself on what support she needs from her friends, her family and ultimately Wolf.
Wolf is amazing and I fell harder for him then I had before. His response to Lyric, what he see’s in her and what he does with that, his response to her displays that elusive unconditional love that will heal Lyric. It’s sheer perfection. I felt my tummy tingling at their possibility, how they give each other reason to hope.
What challenges them now comes pretty much from outside influences. There’s a bit of a mystery that leads to some incredibly tense moments and made me so very anxious. I found myself incorrectly (and sometime correctly) guessing where the story was going. More importantly just how the characters would react. I also found myself rather proud of both Lyric and Wolf. What I really love was seeing the growth as individuals and as a couple.
“It’s funny how fighting for someone you love gives you more strength than fighting for yourself.”
Destined Hearts was everything I had hoped it would be; sexy, sweet, and oh so soulful . Wolf and Lyric are one of my favorite couples and I find K.K. Allen to be an exquisite storyteller. 5++ Stars and a #2017Favorite
