Another sweet and spicy read by Addison Cole. This is the second book of the Braden series. Our Sweet Destiny focuses on the relationship that’s been brewing between Rex Braden and Jade Johnson since the time they were teenagers.

One of the main themes in this book is about family loyalty and the lengths people will go to remain fiercely loyal to those that matter most to them. But what happens when those that matter most begin to include someone that you aren’t supposed to talk to, let alone th

Rancher Rex Braden has been fighting his attraction for veterinarian Jade Johnson for 15 years. The Braden and Johnson families have been feuding for years—and Rex is extremely loyal to his family. He feels strongly that he can’t act on his attraction to Jade. Now that Jade is back in town can he stay away from her?

In the first chapter of the novel, Rex helps Jade get her injured horse out of a steep ravine. I loved that Jade was sassy and spoke right up to Rex. The sexual undercurrent between

Our sweet destiny is a modern and less lethal retelling of Romeo and Juliet. Jade and Rex's fathers had a huge falling out many years before and since then they refuse to talk about what happened and to each other, which makes Jade and Rex's relationship forbidden on some level. Of course, that doesn't stop the sparks or the chemistry. It's there even if our characters refused to admit their feelings which was frustrating. I would have liked them to get together sooner, but instead, they are cir ...more

Life consists of multiple twists and turns. It knocks us down, only to lift us back up. The tragedies we face and lessons we learn, shape us into the people we're meant to be. Our Sweet Destiny is an emotional tale of battle scars, heartache, second chances and the power that love yields. Jade is learning to be human again. A troubled relationship has eaten away at her self worth and she needs a change. Returning home begins a chain of events that will change the course of her life and heal her ...more

What a great story - I felt tingles all over as Rex and Jade were discovering their feelings for each other.

You could feel the chemistry bouncing off the pages. I did tear up a time or two with the family feud standing between them and their happiness. And I loved that when the time came (both) family's choose to support true love 💖

Now I'm anxious to see how the next book brings a smile to my face just as this one did.

Another enchanting read in this series!

Our Sweet Destiny is a well written book full of romance with characters that are easy to like and connect with. You can’t help but fall in love with the characters in the book.

Addison Cole's Sweet with Heat series always makes me smile. I love the tinge of hotness without worrying about where I am when I am reading. Her telling of Jade and Rex's story - yes, it is one story but from two sides of a Hatfield and McCoy like feud -is no exception.

I've read about steamy Rex, the brooding cowboy, for several books now. While a deep, long ago infatuation with Jade is hinted at, nothing ever comes of it in previous books. Little did I know until Our Sweet Destiny that Jade ha

There's nothing like an old family feud to put a hiccup in what could be love! Rex and Jade have felt a connection for years. It's been hidden by the mask of the feud that both of them wear to satisfy their families; however, when Jade returns home, it doesn't take long for this pair to admit that their destiny is meant to be intertwined. The downside is deciding if they are ready to sacrifice their relationship with their family to be together. Addison weaves a timeless story between the pair - ...more

Our Sweet Destiny is an adorable, sweet read. At times, this book could be frustrating due to the feud between the Johnsons and the Bradens.

Both characters are strong, determined, and very loyal to their family.

Jade is a smart and brilliant vet. I really enjoyed reading her moments with horses and her techniques with dealing with them.

Rex is very standoffish, gruff, and caring. He's protective of those he cares about, even if that person is suppose to be a family enemy.

I kept getting frustrated

The first thing I have to say about this book and all of Addison's books, is that the cover is absolutely stunning. That is the first thing that grabs me about any of her books. Her covers make me want to grab them, right away

This book actually reminded me a bit of a Delores Fossen novel. I love a good cowboy story and toss in a family feud (no not the game show..or as bad as the Hatfields and McCoys) but a good rift between families that were once close and you get a nice romance with some good

There are so many words for this book.

Amazing doesn't even come close.

Rex Braden is a dream, he gives off the bad boy persona but the love, loyalty and protectiveness he shows not just his family but Jade too is enough to contradict that but also makes you swoon.

Jade is feisty and loves just as wholeheartedly and they are a perfect match for each other.

This book shows you how much The Bradens truly love and respect each other.

Will true love conquer all, read, enjoy anf find out.

This is possibly my favorite of Mrs. Cole's books! Rex and Jade's families haven't spoken in decades because of an old family feud, yet they've been lusting after another from afar since they were teens. After Jade returns home, the two keep running into each other.

They start a secret relationship, but they're both torn between love and family loyalty. Can they make a relationship work when their parents hate each other so much?

I absolutely adore these books, but I love love love Rex and Jade!

Liliyana Shadowlyn
From the start, I was inclined to compare this to the story of the Hatfields and McCoys. But it doesn't quite fit. Although family loyalty is a strong theme, and the families don't exactly like each other, the resemblance ends there. This is much closer to a happier Romeo and Juliet (where the star-crossed lovers don't die). Rex and Jade really do seem like the perfect couple - both stubborn and fiery, loyal to their family, and longing after each other for years. A great addition to the sweet B ...more

Another sweet with heat winning story! This was a frustrating book for me because I wanted Rex and Jade together from the beginning but their loyalties to their families overpowered my wishes (temporarily though - hehe). You can feel the magnetic pull between Rex and Jade so much that you will want to keep turning the page to see if they will go behind their families to be together. A tantalizing weekend read!

Ms. Cole has brought the perfect opposites attract love story to life. The push and pull that both Rex and Jade feel is felt through the pages while reading. Both Rex and Jade are loyal to their families but have to decide if that loyalty is worth their happiness. Rex is another in a long list of amazing book boyfriends by Ms. Cole. While this is the sweet version it brought the heat with it! I can't wait to see what's next.

Our Sweet Destiny by Addison Cole is a beautifully written, entertaining read and I loved it.

Watching Rex and Jane's relationship unfold had me smiling, swooning and hoping they would be able to move forward and leave all the family drama behind them and give into their feelings.


I'm loving the Sweet with Heat series, each book is a joy to read and I highly recommend them all.

This is the story of Jade Johnson who returns back to her hometown after a failed relationship and closing her veterinary practice. While out on her horse it becomes injured and who comes to the rescue, not only the sexy and forbidden Rex Braden.

Our Sweet Destiny is a sweet less steamy version of  Destined for Love a while. When I picked this up I didn't realise this but as I started the first chapter I recognised the characters and storyline.

This story is all about Rex Braden, a cowboy and Jade Johnson, a vet, They have known each other for years and have had a fluttering of feelings ever since high school, but because Rex's father and Jade's father fell out 40 years earlier and have been feuding ever since, and family means everything

Rex Braden has a filly that holds a special place in his heart. He shows us how hard temptation can be. Jade Johnson is getting really frustrated. Jade is a woman whose undecided of what she really wants – both in her personal and professional like. Rex is also undecided. He doesn’t know if he wants to please his dad or himself. The question then becomes, how is that going to affect the new relationship he wants to build?

We met Rex Braden in the last novel, A Love So Sweet, and this is the incredibly romantic story about Rex and his neighbor, Jade Johnson. Rex and Jade have been crazy about one another for years – from afar. Due to a decades-old feud between their fathers, Rex and Jade as a couple seem to be an impossibility. But the more they are thrown together, whether by accident or fate, the harder it is to deny their feelings, despite the feud.

Ahhh, Rex… What a sexy, sensitive, romantic, caring, hard-work

I absolutely love this series - the Weston Braden's of Weston, CO. They're ranchers with a strong sense of family and honor. Hal Braden has been raising his six kids since his wife died 26 years ago and now as adults we get to visit, in each book, the life of one of the Bradens as each finds love.

Rex has been a rancher his entire life. It's all he's ever wanted. But lately, since Jade Johnson returned to town, he's been thinking about a whole lot more than ranching. However, with the feud that

I think one of my favorite things to do is read the Addison Cole version of each story, then read the Melissa Foster version to get the serious heat afterwards. I know it seems silly, and yet, I'm completely addicted to doing this, though they are the same person. This is Rex and Jade's story, and it was an emotional journey that tugged on my heartstrings completely. See Rex and Jade's families had some serious beef for a very long time with a feud so there was no way that they could ever be tog ...more

This is the second book in Addison Cole’s Braden family series (read my review of number one here)
The family feud that was mentioned in the first book becomes the central theme of this book, reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet (actually just noticed that the lead lovers have the same initials!)
Rex Braden had been harbouring a secret love for Jade Johnson and so has she in return. But the animosity between their fathers has prevented them even speaking to each other for most of their lives.

A long-standing family feud that no one really understands; a couple who cannot be together because of it; and family loyalty that comes before anything else… these are the things they are facing in an uphill battle for love once Rex Braden and Jade Johnson admit that they have been in love with each other since their youth.
