Angel and Chase come from two different worlds. Angel grew up privileged. Her father is CEO of Cavanagh and Associates and her mother owns a successful dance school. Chase on the other hand grew up with a neglectful, manipulating mother, who put her numerous husbands and boyfriends before the welfare of her own son. So much so that when he was twelve, his stepfather at the ...more

After reading previous books from this author, I became an instant fan and I could not wait to get my eyes on this book. Against All Odds is definitely a must read… in fact, as of right now it’s the best book I’ve read this year. Jodi L Perry knows how to craft a story, to where the characters are full of emotion and you can’t help but get swept away in their fictional lives. There was a point in the book where I lost myself in the author’s writing and felt as if I was Angel and was feeling ever ...more

I was given this book before the ARCS went out. This book is OUTSTANDING in every way it follows on from Jodi L Perry's other books , which in their own right were brilliant, but can be read as a stand alone. The book shows the raw emotion of dealing with tragedy, the heartache of brutality that can be done to a woman. It shows the strength of loved ones helping a person to conquer their fears. It gives the laughter from the most unexpected places. This book is an outstanding piece of work, well ...more

Against All Odds is seriously Amazeballs with a full side of hotness. Jodi has done it again!!! Angel moves away to finish school so she can try to experience the full effect of college. With her dad Logan around she just won't be able to do it. Once she is away at school she wanted to live it up.

Chase Daniels is seen as the bad boy on campus, a ladies man who answers to know one but him self. All he needs in college is his motorcycle and girls!!!

That all changes once Angel and Chase meet that

I am a big fan of JL Perry and I have read every single book that this author has released.
I was given an Arc by the author for an honest review. I have always told the truth.
Angel's and Chase story was brilliantly written.
Angel is Logan and Brookes daughter from the first 2 Destiny series all grown up. But to Logan she will always be Daddy's little girl.
Angel decides to move to Melbourne so she can have her own life this is where she meets Chase and they feel instantly drawn to each other.

This book was really good! I give it five stars. I would give it more if I could. I would highly recommend you to start with my Destiny then my forever then Damage Janicas story. J. l. Perry's books are amazing!
She's my favorite author. Her books make you laugh & cry. I can't wait to see what's to come next.

My star rating for AGAINST ALL ODDS is: 4 out of 5 stars! :)

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’after reading
an ARC Copy of ‘AGAINST ALL ODDS-ANGEL'S STORY'
(Destiny Series book #4)
(via:BooksMoviesFandoms.wordpress.com):


Wow! Against All Odds was such an awesome read. I have to first note that this is the first novel I’ve read of the Destiny Series. Being that this is the fourth novel in this series, I have to say I have been missing out if the previous novels in the series are anything like this one.

If a relationship other than friendship is due to fail then this one surly is . How many times can two people who clearly love each other get knocked down and get back up again to fight for what is theirs ?
Angel is the apple of her daddy's eye and no one will ever be good enough for his princess . Her father is determined for Angel to stay single and scares of any boy that shows any interest . Boyfriends for his daughter are not an option . But when Angel moves from Sydney to Melbourne to finis

I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC of this book, and I must admit, I really enjoyed it.
NA genre is not usually my style, but I did enjoy the story immensely.
It's twin POV with very very little overlap between the chapters/characters.
The book flowed nicely, and kept me interested from start to finish.
The two main characters were independently fun, as well as worked nicely on the page as a couple.
The side characters all held merit, and were woven into the story quite nicely.

OMG! This book was freakin amazing. I have previously loved JL's work but this is by far her best work yet
This story is an emotional roller coaster filled with love, lust, romance, suspense, angst and heartbreak; there's something for everyone
Angel is a beautiful woman who falls for the badboy who has a heart of gold and he happens to fall for her too, even though they come from two completely different worlds.
It's nice to see Brooke and Logan again and see that they still love one another, and

From the very first page I was hooked on this book I couldn't put it down. Just loved Angel and Chase and had to find out what was going to happen. I loved the twist, I wasn't expecting that and I seriously didn't want the book to end. I love all of Jodi's books but this is my favourite it's a must read and it definitely deserves more than 5 stars. Can't wait for the next book.

Against All Odds (Angel's Story) by J.L. Perry ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This was my first book I've read from J.L. Perry, it definitely won't be my last.

I'm not a fan of reviews that give the storyline away so I don't do that when reviewing a book if I get the story in a review why read it right?

I loved this book there was so much sincerity in this book all the away from beginning to end. Chase and Angel although throughout this story overcome obstacles you get a genuine reason to like them both. Chase isn't over

What happens when all your life you had everything at the tip of your fingers and you though you had a perfect family, but in reality there are demons that will resurface when you least expected.

Angel Cavanagh was daddy's little girl. Being Brooke and Logan's baby girl Angel wanted to show them she was not little anymore, she wanted to show them that at her 22 years and almost a university graduate she could live alone and take care of herself. But could she?

Chase Daniels never knew the love of

This is the fourth book in the Destiny Series, it can be read as a standalone, but Angel does feature in the previous books.
Angel is the daughter of Logan and Brooke Cavanagh (My Forever, My Destiny)

In this book Angel moves from Sydney to Melbourne to attend university, part of the reason she moves away from home is because of her dad and how over-protective he is. and there is where she meets Chase Daniels... and this is where their story unfol

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhmazing story of love, heartaches and family.

I loved this 4th book from the Destiny Series of Ms. J L Perry. Against All Odds will make you laugh and cry as well. It is nice to read Brooke and Logan with Angel story. I both loved her parents. Logan is very protective of his Princess. I loved their relationship. It makes me missed my Dad so much. Chase dad Pops cracks me up. These father and son are both playful which is also why I loved this book so much. There is so much family l

J.L. Perry, you have done again with such an amazing story!! This is book four in the Destiny series, and I just can't get enough of them!

There are a couple of tough things that happen to Angel in this story that, while reading about it, meant I had to put my tablet down and collect myself but her tenacity to keep living was beautiful, and having Chase there to help her was awesome! One thing I always say is that when the heart is involved, it's futile to go against it because in the end what th

OMG - Loved this book. Such an incredibly developed storyline with multiple layers - you will Not be able to stop reading!!!
Angel is for sure daddy’s little princess but not at all pretentious or stuck up. Really liked her right from the start. Chase is indeed the ultimate bad boy Mr. Sex-on-a-Stick!! His up and down feelings for Angel made me want to give him a good swift kick a few times, But then he redeems himself and I am definitely a fan!

I have loved every single book I’ve read by JL Perry. Bastard was even in my top 10 of favorite books of 2015. They are long, emotional and very romantic. The writing is always so good! Love always wins and heals in her books. The writer has never let me down, no matter how high my expectations may be. I definitely highly recommend every book and I can’t wait for her next release!

In the first two books of the Destiny series, we’ve met Brooke and Logan. We could read how

Against All Odds - Angel's Story by J.L. Perry is the fourth book in the Destiny series but can be read as a standalone. This story is about Angel, daughter of Logan and Brooke Cavanagh from the previous books.

This is a rich and steady-paced story about young love, pre-conceived notions, familial expectations and bad things happening to good people.

Angel has made it to college, away from the over-bearing protectiveness of her father, Logan. She loves him, but she is a twenty-two year old virgin

I really fell in love with Angel and Chase. Their love story is so similar to my own that I found myself really cheering for them and hurting for them when they were hurting.

This is the first book I’ve read by this author, but I’m eager to go back and read the other novels now to see what led to this one. (((Though, not having read any of them, I was still able to follow this story and totally enjoy it as a stand alone -- it was just so good that I want to know the rest of the

I had so many feels during reading this book. One minute, I’m happy right along with the characters and the next I’m crying for them. This book was an incredible read! I love seeing two characters fight for love and win. Angel, comes from a very privileged and spoiled life. She never had a boyfriend and any time she tried, her overbearing dad would end it real quick. She is out to show her parents she can survive without them and lose that pesky virginity.

This was a very enjoyable story about Angel and Chase. They meet during their last year of college and although they are both instantly attracted to each other, they become friends first.

Their friendship is going very well for a while until one day a rain storm tempts them to cross the lines into more than friends. What happens next is a crazy, emotional, but wonderful journey of two people trying to find a happy ending "Against All Odds".

This is the first book that I've read from this author, as this is 4th in a series I was a little skeptical to see if I would be left feeling like I was missing part of the story, or came in during the middle of one. I was happily surprised, this book can definitely be read as a standalone. And what a terrific read it was! This story pulls you in from the beginning and keeps you turning page after page.
