This was a really good love story. Skylar and Destiny where meant to meet in a chance encounter. You can feel the chemistry from the both of them.
It was hot, sexy, intriguing, caring, loving and even some heartache.
Definitely an easy read though.

I was given this book by PR&ATR for an honest review, and I thank them for that!

you know, sometimes, you just need a book to wile away an hour (or two, depending on your reading speed!) that has an uncomplicated plot, nothing too deep and dark, that you can just shut the world off and visit with the characters?? THIS is such a book.

Destiny and her 2 friends, Felicia and Natalie, have spent a small fortune on a Valentine getaway, to get away from it all. only Mother Nature has other ideas, and t

Holy hotness! This novella may be short but it's sexy, filled with hot men and more!

Christa knows how to write men we will love and believe me you will fall in love with Skylar and the other men as well.

Both Skylar and Destiny have relationship issues but when they are together it's like magic. Both are surprised with the sudden feelings they feel towards each other despite the amount of time they have known one another.

I loved Skylar's way of reading Destiny and the same for her. They are two

Incredible read! I am Destiny in a nutshell; with the exception of the job loss, fantastic spa retreat, and slutty friend. Oh, and I've been stranded in the snow, but hot guys on snow mobiles did not come to my rescue lol. All that aside, I definitely connected with a girl lonely on Valentines day, who gave up on love, and just wanted to relax with her girls and find direction. If that's ever been you then this book is a must read. Or if your looking for a new book boyfriend Skylar is grade A pr ...more

Honestly, when I first started reading this book I was slightly concerned that I had gotten myself involved in a horror story instead of a romance. It starts off with three young, single women who decide to go away over Valentine’s weekend for a spa trip. On their drive to the spa they get lost in a terrible snow storm which causes their truck to break down. They all decide to get out and walk for help, but one of the ladies sprains her ankle during the journey. Along come three burly men on sno ...more

This book had me in laughter with the description of Felicia and Matty. Destiny and Skylar's sexual tension had me on edge and I was so happy when they finally got it on. Skylar is such a gentleman and I could tell that his hormones were getting the best of him. Destiny was supposed to be going on an all girl's trip to a spa for Valentine's Day weekend and she and her friends ended up getting stranded in the snow. Matty, Skylar and Myles happened to come upon them like the three musketeers, and ...more

I liked this book, it was a quick and fun read. Skylar did have rules, a love 'em and leave 'em kind of guy but when Destiny comes along, she's a total game changer. I like that this wasn't just an insta-love kind of thing. I thought their relationship was simple with no problems, if only it could be like that for real. I was so glad that Skylar wanted to take it slow with Destiny, he didn't put on the 'charm' on her to get what he wanted. He really liked her and he wanted to do right by her. I ...more

Unforeseen circumstances have brought Destiny and Skylar together. Although they initially try to suppress their obvious attraction for one another, their increasing desire can not be squashed. Thus, creating one the most memorable moments in both Destiny's and Skylar's lives. Something unexpected severs their time together and Destiny becomes determined to find Skylar and find out where she stands.

I found Christa Simpson's novella to be a fun and easy read. I also feel that this could definitel

I have received this book from Irresistible Reads Book Tours in exchange of an honest review.
Finding Destiny is a short book but it's great and extremely sexy.
The characters in this book are wonderful and very well-written. The relationship between Skylar and Destiny is very well-written, hot and believable. These characters have great chemistry and I was hoping they would find a way to be together right from the start.

I loved this book.

I love Christa's Twisted series, but Destiny and Skylar are definitely my fave chars of her now.

They are both sweet, amazing individuals who deserve one another.

I don't like to write much in reviews because giving stuff away just isn't my thing unless I'm really ticked off.

Which wasn't the case with this story! ;)

Read it. You won't regret it!

I wanted to like this more but it just felt like a struggle to connect with any of the characters. None of them seemed to have much depth. Destiny was a bit whiney and just seemed to constantly jump from 'I hate all men' to pouting about why Skylar hadn't jumped her yet. Skylar was okay but again seemed to flit from, 'I don't do relationships' to macho caveman possessiveness over Destiny. It felt very scattered and the reasons for their both holding back from anything other than a fling were nev ...more
Short n Sweet

This a short and sweet read. I enjoyed the main characters and their story.

Their were quite a few moments where I had to re read to clarify who was thinking or saying what - seemed to be some errors in pronouns .

Overall, a good read

Received arc from Christa Simpson through Black Widow Publishing in exchange for an honest review. Original post can be found at:

When given the opportunity to read BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN, Christa also gave review copies of book one, a novella by the name of FINDING DESTINY. I had every intention of reading it first (as I usually try to when it comes to series), but my schedule became erratic and it didn't happen.

So after reading BEAUTIFULLY BROKEN, I dove into

Firstly, setting this book around Valentine’s Day turned out to be nothing more than a pretext to introduce the female lead as being tired of men and uninterested in dating. Yawn. Nothing else about the story has the slightest thing to do with the holiday, to my disappointment.

Secondly, despite this introduction, she falls into bed with the first cute guy she meets after less than twenty-four hours of knowing him. So much for being tired of men, am I right? Because he’s just that hot, I guess.

This is a perfect Valentines Day themed novella!

Destiny has sworn off men for now, and is not really having any luck in life in general, so she's and her girlfriends are on their way to spend Valentines weekend at a spa type of resort. To get there though, they just have to get thru a severe winter storm...easier said then done.

After having an accident and being left stranded by the side of the road, Destiny and her friends are rescued by some guys that were out and about on their snowmobiles.

Destiny is one of those girls that reminded me a cross between Meryl Streep's character in Mamma Mia and the main female character in the movie I Hate Valentine's Day. This Valentine's day, Destiny had planned for her and her two best friends Felicia and Natalie to have a spa weekend being the one's pampered and looked after. However, as we know the big guys up stairs that like to control the weather often have other things in plan and this Valentine's Day has called for a major snow storm. The ...more

This novella is the first book in this amazing series. The novella is very well written. This novella is fast-paced, easy to read, steamy, sexy, adventure, funny, sweet, and romantic. The characters are realistic and very likeable. Everything tied up nicely in the end with no clifhangers. Looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

I just wanted to read this and see if it would change any of my opinions about book two in the series. It did not and I didn't get much out of this one either.
