*This book can be read as a STAND ALONE* I would suggest reading the prior 2 novels and novella BUT Facade follows the story of a secondary character in the previous books.

Kylee Anderson has all the qualities any man would want; sexy, fun, witty, intelligent and most importantly, she never wants a commitment.

Shes gone the last four years getting exactly what she wants out

Well, you all know that I love Ashley Suzanne, even for what she did to us with her first book in this series, Mirage. And no matter how many times she makes us hate her, I still love her.
So of course, I dived right in when I was asked to beta read Façade, the third book in the Destined series. This book follows the story of Miras best friend, Kylee Anderson.
Kylee Anderson has been in a friends with benefits typed relationship with Miras boss, Jacoby Roberts. Now, Jacoby is hot. Sexy,

****I was given an ARC for an honest review****

I was so excited to get an ARC of Façade, Jacoby and Kylee's story.

Kylee has some issues as she has always been detached from her emotional self. She is feisty and independent, but all of that is a wall that she has built to protect herself. To keep away the only thing that can ruin her; love. She keeps men at a distance but keeps her physical needs in check.

Jacoby is a successful man, who wants nothing more than to move on from their convenient

I was lucky enough to be a Beta for Ashley and got to read it before and after she changed it. I am so glad she did! Facade was a roller-coaster of emotion and I enjoyed ever second of Kylee and Jacoby. I like Ashley's books because they are based out of Ann Arbor and Detroit so I can relate to the places she talks about. In this book she even mentions my home town which is brownie points for her! The book has a bit of everyone from the previous

Thrilled I got the chance to read this one! So here is my review.

Ah-maz-ing! Ashley has done it again, with a drool worthy Jacoby in all his CEO hot-guy goodness! I love the view into the lives of Mira, Skylar, and Danny. You will NOT be disappointed. Also, if you are a fan of Ashley's work (and if you're not, you should be) you know she is the QUEEN of the twist...

All in all, an un-put-downable journey!

I was lucky enough to get an ARC copy of this book. I don't even know where to start, except to say Ashley Suzanne is brilliant. Kylee's and Jacoby's story had me cheering them on and gasping in shock. While this book can be read as a stand alone, I recommend that you read the whole Destined series. You won't be disappointed and you'll gain a new favorite author.

Wow!!! Im so happy I got my hands on this one. I was not so patiently waiting for the next book in Ashley Suzannes Destined Series, and Facade did NOT disappoint!

Facade is Kylees and Jacobys story, but we still see Danny, Mira, and Skylar (loooooove Skylar!!). Kylee swears off relationships, and doesnt want to commit, but Jacoby wants more..

Their story is a crazy roller coaster of emotions. I loved Kylees character, and how strong she is, and

Okay, first of all this cover is absolutely GORGEOUS!!! Okay, now that I got that out of the way; let's get crackin. I am a HUGE fan of Ashley Suzanne and have been ever since she hit publish on Mirage. This story is my favorite one out of the Destined Series. Readers are introduced to Kylee and Jacoby in Mirage and this novel just hit the spot. I felt like I was watching a movie; glued to the screen and all my popcorn was gone. Yes!! It's just that GOOD!!! Kylee is so dynamic in this book and ...more

Well she has done it again folks!!! Ashley Suzanne is a brilliant author and her Destined Series is one of my favorites. It all started when I won a copy Mirage from her. I finished that and wanted to hunt her down for more. If you've read it you know exactly what I'm talking about. If you haven't what are you waiting for. Just make sure you click them all you will be hooked.

I received an ARC in return for an honest review as part of Ashleys Street Team.

Façade what can I say other than Ashley Suzanne you have done it again! I LOVED IT! AMAZING!! A MUST READ!!!
Façade is Kylee Andersons story from cover to cover while Ashley brings in other parts of the Destined Series family; this book can be read as a standalone (I recommend you read ALL of this series). We get to know Kylee quite well in this novel; she is sidesplitting, smart, sassy, sarcastic, and sexy!

I was given an eARC in exchange for an honest opinion.
I read the first two novels and novella in the last two days-so I was completely immersed in the Destined world. And I loved it!
Jacoby is a successful businessman who knows what he wants-namely a real relationship with Kylee. He's crazy romantic and sin in a suit!
Kylee is Mira's bestie. Sassy, sexy and confident...except when it comes to ways of the heart. She's more of a get in, get hers and get out kinda girl. No relationships. Then she

another great read yet again, no surprise since I loved her last books.

I read and ARC of this book and let me tell you if you have read Ashley Suzannes other books you will love just as much.
This is Kylee and Jacoby's story. Kylee has her walls up and is affraid to offer more in a relationship. She is in the mind set that this is all I can offer you to Jacoby who is friends with benefits type of relationship. Little did she know that Jocoby had different plans for her to show her shes

When I first read this book I was realizing that Kylee was just like me. I was so captivated by this book because I had a connection with Kylee and Jacoby. I felt like what I wanted to say back then was in this book. I read this story with all the distractions and came to a lot of realizations along the way as Kylee did. I loved how Jacoby loved his girl and he loved hard. Kylee was fighting the love she had for Jacoby but realizing that she should not have to. By the time I got towards the end ...more

Facade is Jacoby and Kylees (Mira's best friend) story, but you also still get to see Danny, Mira, and Skylar.

Kylee is a strong, sassy, independent beautiful redhead who swore off relationships. She guards her heart so she doesnt get hurt.

Jacoby is a sweet, romantic guy. All he wants is to settle down with Kylee. He does everything he can to knock down the walls she built.

Their story is a crazy emotional roller coaster. Parts of the story had me

I received this book to give my honest review of it and let me just say WOW! I loved the first 3 books in this series and honestly, I didn't think this would be as good as any of those and I loved those! But this was a great book!!! Ashley Suzanne totally did it again!

Kylee is different then Mira but yet shares similar qualities. This book is different because Kylee is different, but has the same spirit as the others! I love her boldness! And then the twists....oooohh, loved it!

I was excited to receive an ARC of Facade. This is the third book in the Destined Series, but it centers around Kylee (Mira's best friend) and her relationship, or lack of, with Jacoby. As Jacoby does his best to try and convince Kylee that he loves her and will never hurt her, Ashley threw in a twist that made me go back in the story to make sure I wasn't crazy. I love when she does that! Ashley you did a great job with this one!

Whoa People, this book was great, I really enjoyed Kylee's story with Jacoby and why she was the way she was about relationships. And yes Ashley again blows our minds with these ploy twists and I did have to go back a reread as I shall again. This is a great novel and I cannot wait till Epiphany :).

The main characters in this book were side characters in the previous books to the Destined Series.

Although I did enjoy Mira, I must say Kylee is way cooler.  I love that she is so tough and takes what she wants from life.  Usually you read about a bad boy being tamed by a good girl, but Kylee makes no claims to being one of those good girls.  She's ballsy with no apologies.  How refreshing!  Even though she does sometimes tend to go past gutsy into the crazy zone, you still gotta love her.

Here we finally have Kylee's story , and I say finally because I have wanted to know her past so I could figure out her deal. Kylee is awesome I loved her right along , she is feisty and hot and tons of fun !! But here we get the other side of Kylee and it is very easy to relate to her on all levels.

We first met Jacoby in book 1 when he was with Mira , or so we thought !! I loved him then but since I was Team Skylar I did not really have

I have to be honest here. I started writing this review while I was reading Facade and I had to change my opinions several times until I reached the end! This is what I love about Ashley Suzanne. She can throw twists into a story that you'd never expect until it's right on top of you. Word of warning to those who read the last chapter first - it won't work with this novel.

GAHHHHH!!!! I have been waiting for this FOREVER!! I was soo excited that Kylee and Jacoby are finally getting their story told. I really didn't like Jacoby that much so I was happy that he was getting a chance to redeem himself.

We start off where some stuff took place in Inception and I loved getting to see Kylee's POV from things. Kylee has parent issues and relationship issues and when she walked in on a bombshell of a woman in Jacoby's home she decided she would be casual with him. Well

Seriously I cannot get enough of this author. No, really I am her stage 5 clinger stalker. Her books are so addictive.

We meet Kylee in Mirage and shes stays consistent in the others as well, being the BFF and all. She is a smart mouthed, take charge kind of girl, she goes after what she wants when she wants and exactly what all of us LOVE in a BFF. Well Facade is her book (FINALLY)....

We knew she had secrets but had no idea what they could be. Well in the authors standard writing style try to

I point to Mira, whos frantically kissing Skylar like hes getting ready to board a space shuttle destined to save the world from falling asteroids.

If having a boyfriend means being hot for him at all hours of the day, Im pissed I didnt sign up sooner.

Yes!! I absolutely loved the story! Jacoby, an incredibly successful CEO with an Alpha Male type of personality lingering underneath the surface. Which this paired perfectly with Kylee. She is so much an Alpha female. Just for fun, no strings attached, and she is stunning and sexy! I love her witty comebacks and how she feels she can wrap any man around her finger, except Jacoby. He is changing her game and doing it with such tact and ease. The supporting characters are a riot as well. Mira and ...more

I never really go and write out reviews usually just rate them after I am done with the book. But this book NEEDS to have great reviews so the readers know that they are getting a great read!

You really should start with the beginning of the series so you can understand the rest of the characters, but this can be read as a stand alone. For me seeing what was going on with Kylee and Jacoby was exactly what I wanted. And the plot twist is not what you would normally expect, and it was a fantastic

This is Kylee and Jacoby's story. We meet both characters is Mirage the first book in this series. Kylee is Mira's bestie. Kylee is a very strong, independent woman who has built this wall up around her and refuses to do relationships. Jacoby is a hot, swoon worthy, great guy who wants nothing more than to break that wall around Kylee's heart and have a relationship.

I love Ashley Suzanne and how she created these amazing books for readers to enjoy! She enjoys creating characters that you love and presents books that you fall for and get behind. She gets you invested in relationships and then she switches it up and confuses you and makes you wonder what the hell just happened.....but she always pulls it together and makes you happy in the end!

I have really enjoyed this series. My biggest complaint with Facade would be Kylee. I understand she's been through stuff in the past that makes her not trust men, but her internal struggle gets a little old after a bit. It seems as though Ashley enjoys writing that one big shock. It worked great on Mirage, but on Facade it was more confusing than anything.
I did love Jacoby. He and Mira saved the book for me. I didn't love it but I didn't hate it. I

Ashley Suzanne has been writing as long as she can remember. As a youngster, she was always creating stories and talking to her imaginary friends. Thankfully, her parents also carried this love of fiction, and helped her grow into the writer she is today.

Ashley is a bestselling author and spends equal amounts of time writing and reading. Being the true book whore she is, Ashley would rather dive
