OMG!!!! OMG! I don't even know where to begin with this book...

This is my FAVORITE book by Lisa Suzanne of all time! After I read the Blurb for A LITTLE LIKE DESTINY, I just could not wait to read this! I devoured this book in less than a day, more like less than 6 hours straight... Lisa Suzanne starts off the book right away and the storyline keeps at a great pace where I could not stop reading.

I was hired to proofread this book. The only aspects of the story that I influenced were the spelling and grammar. If you feel that my connection to the book makes my review untrustworthy, so be it, but this is my honest review.

We all know that most teachers get summers off, but what do they do with all that free time? The answer just might surprise you. Alright, so clearly I don't think Reese is a representative of all teachers, for one thing, most of them live in places that are much more bor

This story was extremely well written, and the naughty bits were hot and steamy. Unfortunately the story was just not for me. It's a love triangle between one girl and brothers, and for me it just doesn't work. I think the author did a great job making each of the guys equal. I didn't really come out of this favoring one over the other, but still. I think I'm not a love triangle person. It stresses me out too much.

Prepare yourself to be consumed by these characters and book! A Little Like Destiny came very highly recommended by one of my book besties and it did not disappoint!! Adulting kept me from reading this cover to cover, but last night/this morning I couldn't put it down and finished at 4AM!

** ARC provided by the author for an honest review **

Romance author Lisa Suzanne’s first in a new series, A Little Like Destiny, mixes a rock star, bad boy and a successful business tycoon with an English teacher. There is a love triangle and secrets with a cliffhanger that will leave you begging for more.

Reese Brady is an English teacher, but that doesn’t mean she can’t be a dedicated fan also. For 10 years, she has followed her favorite band VAIL and her celebrity crush, lead singer Mark Asht

5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Get ready for a book that will grab you from page one and hang onto you till the last page. Just when you think you know which pair you are rooting for the other one makes a move and suddenly you are rooting for them. Lisa Suzanne nails the first book in her new series A Little Like Destiny and once you read it you will be rooting along with the rest of us.

Terrible love triangle. None of the characters are relatable.

We are supposed to put ourselves in the role of Reese, an everyday girl, who has two men (powerful, rich, successful, yadayadayada) vying for her love. Except Reese keeps going back and forth and telling us how she is not a slut. Both of the guys are just coming on too strong and the conversations are not at all realistic - or if that's the case, the interactions are down right creepy.

This was a well written story and the way it flowed was pretty awesome. Since I'd read the synopsis and knew what the story was about, I experienced this tension that honestly made me enjoy the story more as I waited for what I knew was to come. And oh boy did that moment come full force.

I had so many conflicting emotions about all the main characters of the book. Sometimes I loved them, others I didn't. The secondary characters had me frustrated or loving them at different times as well. But I

"What do you want from me?" I whisper. He's close enough that I can smell peppermint. I catch the faintest hint of sandalwood.
"Everything," he whispers back.

Reese Brady is the girl who grew up with posters of Mark Ashton on her wall, but she never imagined that she'd end up in his bed. She had one night with the rock star, but she wishes there was more. She needs to move on because it was only a one night stand. She meets Brian Fox and finally starts to put that 'one night' behind her until.

* 2.5 Stars *

A Little Like Destiny by Lisa Suzanne is a contemporary romance about a teacher caught in a love triangle between two brothers. This is my first book by this author, and I'm on the fence about it. The writing was done well, and it kept me reading, but there wasn't much of a story.

Most of the book is Reese's thoughts as she flounders in confusion about her feelings about Mark and Brian. Nothing else really happens. Well, that's not entirely true. Sex happens and plenty of it, but th

Not worth it.

I do not understand how this book had good reviews or even why it was made into a series. The writing style itself had me rolling my eyes more than once. The main character is 27, yet sounds like a 15 year old. She was completely wishy washy. I couldn't care less about her. Now add the men in this story. We have the rock star who has minimal page time (except for all the times the h was thinking about him). Then the boyfriend, who starts off ok and then leaves you cold. This book is

5++ stars but prepare yourself because this leaves you with a huge cliffhanger.

Reese is a school teacher in Vegas and is getting the opportunity to meet Mark Ashton who just happens to be the rock star she has majorly crushed on for years. Reese’s friend is making all of this happen by getting the backstage passes for the girls to meet this heartbreaker. Reese has been to Vail concerts before but this time she would have sworn that the sexy rocker was actually making eye contact with her a few

Oh the confusion and absolute nightmare of a choice to have to make! Who to choose? Just who? I have fallen in love with both men in this story; the super sexy, lusted after, superstar singer, the temptingly, gorgeously unattainable Mark? Or the equally beautiful, totally adorable, totally committed, full on in love with you and fully attainable (but really second best) Brian? I am in a complete daze as to who Reese should pick. Why, oh why, can't she have both? A

WARNING: The following has a huge cliffhanger!!

But if you can get past that, it seriously is one of the best books that I have read in quite some time. Very unique storyline. Awesome love triangle-rock star/high school teacher/businessman romance. Her miscommunication ( no communication....un-communication?... avoidance of a painful topic!!) is setting them all up for some serious hurt. I think we may have a closet hussy in our midst, if the ending is any hint. I really liked this one.

It annoyed me to no end how Reese would go back and forth. She pushed herself into being with Brian, but kept thinking about Mark even though it was a one night stand. I don't care if it was with a rock star, there's no reason for her to obsess over it whether she had a fantastic night or not. Plus I just hate how quickly she jumped into being with Brian physically too. "I'm not usually this way but I need to have a summer of sin" mindset was just all so eye roll induc

I am such a sucker for musicians, both in real life and in books. I also love a man in a suit. Not much more to say without spoiling everything. Cute story, so far. The naughty scenes are good.

This book was so Good!! Man it had my emotions all over the place. I didn't know how to think or feel. I haven't read a love triangle in a long time but this was so so good. I loved it. The angst and chemistry between these characters was HOT! She is stuck between two SEXY AS HELL brothers. Only one doesn't know about her feeling for the other. The Rock Star and the Business mogul, One with an intense connection, and one that is Perfect for her.

What a ride this book was! Reese has a dream night with her rock and roll idol followed by meeting the man who could possibly be her future….but there’s a twist! Brothers, that’s right they are brothers. Let me try to fill you in without giving anymore than that away!

Reese is a twisted up mess between her one night with Mark Ashton, lead singer of her favorite band VAIL. After just one night she can’t get him out of her mind. She’s kind of obsessive over it: should she have left her n

Anyone who has read my reviews knows thqt I am sucker for a rock star (well, not literally, but if they opportunity arose, well, who knows hehehe) so picking up A Little Like Destiny was a no brainer for me.

We've all had that dream/daydream where we get to meet our favourite rock star, and this is what happens to Reese. She is a quiet and reserved, but goes all out when she meets Mark for one night of passion.

The anticipation for what I knew was coming was killing me! The entire time Reese was getting to know Brian and falling for him, I kept thinking about what was going to happen the minute she realized Mark was his brother. Every step of her journey was gut-wrenching. First Reese's uncertainty surrounding her one night with Mark, then the moment she w
