Let me begin by saying I read this book as a Guest Reviewer for Sugar and Spice Book Reviews. Thank you ladies for giving me an opportunity to be a part of your review team.

Now, for my 5 STAR review. When I was awarded the opportunity to read this book as a guest reviewer for Sugar and Spice, I did not read the book overview. That would be a first for me. So with that said, I did not know what the book was about. Where to begin.......

I like it.You get to read both POV but at some stage it is kind of like it is being repeated.But the romance between the H/H is just not exciting enough.The book is more on finding out about the journal which made me go on and finish the book.

"It's hard to believe that just one short year ago, we thought fate was out to get us. We thought we were doomed to a life of misery and disappointment. Isn't it funny how a little book can change everything?"

Laura left Baltimore for one reason. To get away from her cheating ex-boyfriend. Her plan? To pack up her few belongings, including a care-package box of grandma panties from her aunt, into her lemon of a vehicle and travel to Nana's house in Rock Cove, Virginia before returning home to Ala

This book is the epitome of cute!!!!! I loved every second of it! Sometimes fate can bring you to unexpected places. That was definitely the case for Laura and Brooks! They both come from different walks of life but somehow, ended up in a small beach town in Virginia together. Laura is running from the disaster of her last relationship while Brooks is stuck in a perpetual nightmare with a fiancée he hat

Did I just seriously read that entire book?

I'm not sure I have ever had so much to complain about in one book.
To start off with, this book has the most ridiculous premise I have ever read. My main problem is with the pushover hero. There's no nice way to say it. Brooks is a pansy. He is not a man's man. His voice is like a 15 year old...whose English is his second language. Authors, contractions are good things, PLEASE put them in.
One of the first things we learn about Brooks is that he is bein

Tasha Ivey’s debut Novel “Destiny Ever-changing” was a perfect chick-flick book to curl up on the couch with. This was a very refreshing read for me. I have been reading either darker subject matters or major hot & steamy books (not that there is anything wrong with that LOL), but this was a pleasant change of pace…..that I just need sometimes.
There were so many things that I really enjoyed about this story. First I will say, Tasha tells a beautiful story and it was very easy to follow alon

"Love has no concept of time. When it happens, it happens, and if it's meant to be, it will be."

From the start, they have a connection. But Brooks has many secrets. He has his own issues and his life is on a course that makes him miserable. But they keep crossing paths and the more they do, th

I love a good heartfelt romance, they are my absolute favourite kind of read. Destiny Ever-Changing, the debut novel by Tasha Ivey is just that! Tasha Ivey is one author to watch out for, seriously! I started this novel with every intention of reading for an hour, unfortunately for my family I got sucked in and didn’t put it down until I was finished. A truly fabulous read!!

Love this debut by Tasha Ivey! Laura is unlucky in love. She just can't seem to make the right connect, always falling for the wrong guy and the right time. After another failed relationship Laura leaves Baltimore to head back home to Alabama. Along the way she decides to stop by her Nana's house in North Carolina. Almost to her destination, she gets a flat tire but is soon rescued by a gardener for the house where she broke down. The only thing is the gardener is not really a gardener but Brook ...more

WOW!!! This book is absolutely amazing. It is so well written that you feel more like you are in a movie then actually reading a book. I was hooked the moment that I read the first page. It is definitely one of those books that you cannot put down. So be prepared when you start to dedicate you time because it is impossible to stop once you have started. With this book you are never bored. You are always wondering what will happen next. Destiny Ever-Changing will take you through a roller coaster ...more

I am such a sucker for a love story and Destiny Ever – Changing gave me just that. Tasha Ivey gives us a story of two people that have given up on the fact that love is easy. But to tell the truth anything worth having never is. When Laura seeks the comforts of home from her Nana, she finds Brooks “popping” into her life. Both Laura and Brooks struggle with the feelings this meet queue created. While Laura is looking to find herself Brooks is just trying to survive. As the story unfolds both lea ...more

I started reading this book without reading the blurb about it and was pleasantly surprised. I love Laura!! I'm glad the prologue was just that-because I didn't get a good vibe from Alex-so I'm glad Laura stuck to her guns regarding him--off to bigger & better things. Laura has not experienced the best of luck regarding her past relationships so she's off to her Grandma's to do some soul-searching. By 7% I was laughing my ass off

Destiny Ever-changing is a heart-warming read! There are several elements that blended together make such an enjoyable story. Several days after finishing it, I'm still thinking about this story, these was touching. It's a beautiful rendering of two people set on separate paths, finding their way to one another as their destinies change and their paths merge into one.

Destiny by definition: something that is to happen or has happened to a particular person or thing; lot or fortune. the predetermined, usually inevitable or irresistible, course of events. the power or agency that determines the course of events.

Well I can honestly say that all of the above were and are correct at some point in this first novel by Tasha Ivey. Tasha has done a great job in her first go round in the self-publishing world.

When the blog was approached with this ARC I jumped on it. What gripped me was the title-Destiny Ever-Changing. I thought to myself, “What a promising title.” I wasn’t too far off to be honest. There were ups, downs, and in-betweens for me in this book. There were things I loved, things I liked, and things that I felt were maybe a little…convenient? Let me elaborate. But keep in

I think this book should be rate a 4 to 5 stars. I rated this book a 5 star do to the twist and turns in the characters and story line. Your heart stings pull for Laura for her heart ache and trying to find a what will make her happy. The Characters and story line was great. The book was funny to read. I also read the book in one day it was that good. I didn't want to put the book down. I had to know what happen next. I cant wait for the second book. Thanks for a great day of reading..

I enjoyed this read. It was simple and quick. I didnt care a great deal for the storyline but it didnt stop me from reading it. I at least finished it and that says alot for me since I havent been able to even finish quite a few books lately because they were so bad. I will read more from this author because she has great potential.

Started it this week, finished last night, have recommended it to all my friends.....Such a beautiful touching love story. Yes I cried at the end but if you can not get wrapped up in the lives of the characters that are on the pages then why bother to read. Excited for your upcoming book. You officially have another fan!!!

This is a quick, sweet read. It had some funny moments, so it definitely kept me entertained. The character development was good. There a few times in the book where I didn't really connect with what was happening, but not on the important parts.

I'm surprised I actually got around to finishing this book. I could probably list all the reasons why I couldn't get into this book, and how much it pissed me off, but I won't.

However, I'm going to mention one little thing. A huge pet peeve of mine. Cheating.

Brooks, the main lead, was engaged to a girl other than Laura, our "heroine." *puke* Both of them were just pathetic. First, if it wasn't horrible enough that Brooks was too much of a pansy to break off his engagement with his "shallow, ch
