Well, S.E. Rose penned another twisty story that kept me on the edge of my seat with Determination. It all starts when Jesse Ryder is stranded on an island due to a storm, and he meets a pop princess, Vanessa Tourney. They spend time together, and find a chemistry that won't be denied so sexy times follow, which light the sheets on fire. When it's time to leave, they make a date for a couple months later, but find that they can't get each other out of their heads, so all bets are off. However, J ...more

Determination is my first read for S.E. Rose and it was a bit of a mixed bag for me. There were a few references to events that happened in the earlier books that I was oblivious to. That didn't really bother me except that it was the same bad guy causing problems in this one and I was missing some of the connections.

That being said I like Vanessa and Jesse. They were both independently successful and lonely. It was a random twist of mother nature that they met, but from the first look, there wa

Suspense, action, and lots of sexy times. While this book is part of a series, it reads as a stand-alone. The story is from the hero’s POV, and he is part of the family that the entire series revolves around. The hero, Jesse, meets the heroine, Vanessa, at an island resort and it’s insta-lust turned insta-love. The network of bad guys from the previous books are back at looking for data discovered in the previous book. There are a lot of moving parts happening in the story, and some characters, ...more

Can I just say I love the Portentous Destiny Series so much. Determination is a fabulous read. I love the mystery, adventure, suspense and love all thrown into one book. Jesse and Vanessa are destined to be together. I love the little connections in this one. Vanessa is one tough cookie that's for sure. Jesse knows the drill since his family has been targeted (and featured) in through the whole series. He doesn't shy back from what is going on. I love how he tries to protect Vanessa from what is ...more

This is the fourth book in this phenomenal series. Jesse and Pop princess Vanessa are both stranded on an island due to mother nature, and they are unable to deny the intense chemistry between them. However, danger is lurking, can Jesse protect Vanessa? No spoilers; this is a must read, you will not be disappointed! This is a well written flawless story, which is filled with twists, danger, and love. I was enthralled throughout this engaging page turner, and cannot wait to read more from this ta ...more

Another great book by S.E. Rose

Love how this book grabs your attention in the beginning and takes you along for an exciting ride all the way to the end. Having read the previous 3 books in the series, I was already familiar with the main characters. Even though they are rich and successful, they were still down to earth likable people. I enjoy romance and suspense and I love how well S. E. Rose writes both! After reading the sneak peek for the last book, I can’t wait to get my hands on it!!!

He is broken by his past but he does not look like it. He is about to meet someone who could turn his life upside down. She is a star and has it all but she is missing something. They meet and they fall for each other, they break up and get back together again. There is something dark which may spoil it all again. See what will happen

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
