Well, I'm not really sure where to start....... The first book in this series was very good, in fact I think I rated it with 5 stars. So much took place in the first book. Then the second book was good too but not as great as the first. But overall I felt it was a 4 star read. As for this book, the third and final book, it was just okay for me. It did not hold my interest like the first two. I think the first two books held all the action and this one just kinda lost it's spark. It just seemed t ...more
A New Beginning series is an outstanding read one that I totally enjoyed from the first page to the very last. Brenda Kennedy puts her whole heart and soul into her writing giving you a wonderful outstanding read which will break your heart and leave you near to tears. She keeps you smiling, laughing as she tells a wonderful sad story of abuse, love, lost and starting over. She gives you wonderful characters that you can really relate to which will stay with you long after you finish the read.

Things are going great. Angel and Mason are in love and have made it through so much. Just when I think everything will be great they receive some pretty messed up news. They have to work to find their way through this new problem and they finally started to move on to their lives together. This is a wonderful conclusion an amazing series that I enjoyed greatly. Reading one book in the series just wasn't enough I love the series and I hope you all enjoy it as much as me.

I hated putting the trilogy down

I gave this 4 out of 5 stars only because some of the storyline was predictable. That being said...what a beautiful love story. Even the " predictable" parts are written well and offer alternatives to what you may think the outcome would be. I truly enjoyed my time spent with this loving cast of characters....but I want to know how Angels attempt at matchmaking works out.

Mason and Angel's story is well written. The characters are lovable. Angel has been through it but she does what her aunt ask her and moved to Florida. Follow Mason and Angel's love story in Destined To Love, for those of you who love happily ever afters, you get it with this one! Job well done by Brenda Kennedy. I would recommend this one to all lovers of romance.

<3 Yet again, after reading this last book, I was left empty. I wanted more and more to happen. The story to keep evolving. And then, we ran into Shattered Dreams :)
Angel and Mason have been through a lot. They are so strong couple. Angel has been through a lot and Mason help her. I highly recommend this book.

Wow. Great trilogy... I cried, laughed, got mad, and cried more. This book was amazing how just meeting for a blind date can end up so beautiful. I have not gone to bed yet since I started the first book. Here I'm at the end wishing for more. Great story line. You so need to read. You'll be responding like I was.

Another wonderful read and a sweet end to this series.
I love the tenderness and caring Angel and Mason show to one and another........and the passion that simmers in the background. There is not anything evil lurking in darkness in this final book just the big question of Angel's pregnancy.
Mason has already proven time and time again how much he just loves Angel and really nothing else matters. Such a swoon worthy sexy, smart, charming, fun, caring, protective and all around good guy

Uuhhh. Not sure how I feel about this series

So I have mixed feeling for this book. It was good for the most part. A lot of love and good friends.
But this series could have been 1 book. It was too much detail such as describing each place and person. There was random events that are placed in there and boring when it told the day to day mundane stuff.
With they way they set up some sexual encounters you would think it would lead up to a great sex scene. Well that never came! The book actually tu

I am glad that I picked this author. I read "Shattered Dreams" first and I continued to read the series. Then I read the "Angel" series and read most of the night. I could not put these books down. As soon as I finished one book I ordered another one. Bravo Brenda Kennedy looking forward to reading more of your books. These books showed so much love between the couples where there was so much tragedy. I loved them all.

Finally the conclusion to this story. I still wish the author would have written this as one novel; I did not like the endings of the first two novels just stopping. A reader invests time in characters and expects a conclusion. I read at the end that these characters show up in some other books of Kennedy's as well. Not sure if I want the torture again?!

After reading almost 700 pages, in this series, I am coming away like I wasted half of my time. I really liked the main characters and the general story (with some exception) but this is so beyond wordy. Then after all is said and done, there isn't even a consummation of the love story. so much detail attention was spent on things that really didn't matter.

This is a beautiful love story that after reading the 1st book I immediately had to get the 2nd only to discover that after finishing the 2nd I needed the 3rd. This is one of the very few book series that I HAD to have the next book to continue the story. Mason is my new book boyfriend!!!!

I enjoyed reading it and like many others I believe it was missing the sparks, but overall it was ok, although I wished it had an epilogue or at least was more focused on them instead of Brea and Vincent.

Awesome Love story

What this world needs more of Love like Angel and Mason have for one another. I hated for the end to come was my best set of trilogy books I have ever read 9 books in less than a month. Thank you Brenda Kennedy for your wonderful Love stories
