3.5 Finding a Brute Stars

Every once in a while I like to pick up a super indie-author. I was instantly drawn to the cover and summary. Limits of Destiny is the first book of a series, but do not be fool, this is a full novel (I thought it was a serial as well). So you will get plenty of steam, action and story. This is a standalone, but it is also part of a series. Meaning, you can read this book and be satisfied and you can also continue the series.

This is my first book by the author and definitely will not be my last and I must say I was not at all disappointed by the story.
It was captivating, fascinating, interesting and engrossing.

What can I say about Limits of Destiny...I won a copy of this book and I have to say, I would have gladly paid for it (I purchased the other 3 ;) ) It was everything I look for in a book...sweet love, heart-pounding sex scenes and characters that I wish were friends (or more!) I would heartily recommend this book to anyone!

This is such a sweet story, at least it is for me you remember that feeling you had when you were starting to read those first chapters of 50SoG? Well, I have that feeling for a while…wanna know why?

This book ended up being much more than I expected! I love the fact that the author set the story in Switzerland, I think that added an interesting twist and a level of believability that is lacking in some similar novels. I'm more willing to accept a 29 year old millionaire, hotelier living in Zurich than here in the US, lol.
The relationship that develops between Alexia and Alexander has a genuine quality to it that I just adored. Unfortunately, like in all good books, things aren't always wha

I enjoy finding new authors, and hope that I enjoy their books, and this one was. no exception. At first, I wasn't sure if I would enjoy this book or not but it was really good. The book follows Alexia, who goes to a birthday party and meets Alexander. She falls fast, and hard, for the playboy and sparks quickly fly. As they get to know one another, their relationship begins to develop more and more. Will be interesting to see what happens in book 2.

This is a must read! You won't be disappointed. It is love at first sight with an Alpha male with a twist. The author really makes you feel like you are in the book, from detailed description to how each person is feeling. Very highly recommended.!!

I liked this book. This is a brand spanking new author for me and I love when I find gems, authors included, that I never had even heard of. And like a few more, this is just one of many new author discoveries I have made this year that I will slide into my back pocket for future references.

This book was amazing and captivating. It was sexy, intense, passionate, intriguing, suspenseful, and definitely one that I will add to my re-read pile for the future. And despite the volumes in this

Have you ever dreamed about your true love, of someone who would make your heart jump out of your chest, of someone who would bring all of these positive emotions that you have been waiting for? If you have, the book “Limits of the Destiny” is just the right book for you.
In the book you will discover passion and love, happiness and disappointments; the difficulty of making decision should you listen the your mind or just follow the voice of your heard!

Well I for one love sexy, rich alpha males. Especially if they have blue eyes and dark colored hair, yum.

As for the book, I love roller coaster rides and this one took me on it. The insecurity and the doubt of this love story kept me intrigued. Alexia's confidence in herself kept Alex's control to a minimum. Yet their love for one another is infectious. I would recommend this book to anyone.

I finished Limits of Destiny today. I enjoyed the story and the book. Alexia is a girl who is looking for love and looking for someone who will make her heart stop and have the once in a life time love story like the ones she always read about in books. Alexander is your typical successful sexy millionaire who can have anyone he wants. Two of them met and their world collided. This is a very easy read and I find myself can really connect to Alexia!

I hadn't read a book by Sharlyn Branson before and enjoyed it so much that I can't wait to read the next book!
The storyline was about Alexia and Alexander, Alexander is rich and falls for Alexia at first sight but he doesn't want to share his secrets with her which I feel will be to much for her to take in the end. Alexia falls in love with him quickly but is very jealous of his previous sex life.
I could relate with Alexia and would react in the same way. I can't wait to read the next book!

I received a copy for an honest review.

Okay story. I had a problem with reading it. It seems it was written in formal English for Alexia, and the author was going for an accent for the other characters from Switzerland. Whichever it was the reading didn’t flow easily for me. In the beginning all I could think of was this is a young inexperienced girl, and the poor thing was being taken in by a player. I kept waiting for Alexander to screw up, and get caught cheating. I’m guessing that will be in

4.5 stars.... I received a copy of this from the author, but was unable to get the link to open. Therefore, just go and buy it....

It was a really good read... I could have totally backhanded Julia a lot throughout the book! But then again. Alexia was so wishy washy… But again, she almost had to be given that her best friend told her to stay away from him. But I truly believe that Alexander was true to her and was changing. A good book….. that left me hanging….
