This is my first book by this author. I'm happy that I received this arc in exchange of an honest review. I did love the story but would have gave it 4.5 stars. It was rushed towards the end plus short like a novella.

Ana is a widow of 4 years her loving best friend gives her the best present. I loved her friendship with Gary he is hilarious. He reminded me that every woman needs a gay guy as their bestie.

When Ana met Grayson she had a feeling like she met him somewhere. Grayson is so hot and

I love anything written by Bella Emy, so I was excited to read this story as I never know which direction shes going to take. This is such an emotional story and being honest if youre a crier, then youre going to want to make sure you have tissues on hand because Bella did an amazing job at capturing all the emotions for all the characters. Im not a crier myself, but I felt all the pain that Ana goes through and all the hurt, but being honest thats what makes the story so much more.

This is my first time reading Bella Emy and Im sure it wont be the last. Destined is a short, emotional read so make sure you have tissue ready. Its also about second changes and learning that it is ok to love again after tragedy. Destined is told in first person from Anas POV.

Ana has lived through a tragedy that some of us cant even fathom. Four years later and she is still as heartbroken as the day it happened. Who could blame her? Anas best friend, Gary, sends her on a vacation to London.

What can I say? Bella never fails at writing. This lady writes with her heart and soul, to give her readers her all! This book had all the feels. I cried through a whole box of tissues with this one. I felt everything that Annabelle felt. My heart broke with her and helped with her. I was walking through life (book) with Grayson and Annabelle. Bella's story telling only gets better and better with each wonderful story she tells and shares with us! If you only read 1 book while in quarantine lol ...more

After a tragedy Ana finds the holiday season difficult, and when her best friend offers her a trip to London, she grabs it. No spoilers though: this is a must read, you will not be disappointed. This is a good story which is heart-breaking, heart-warming and with an unexpected twist which all had me intrigued throughout this short read, and I recommend for all.

I was on an emotional ride with this one. It's a short story but filled with so much heartbreak and emotion and passion, that I had a hard time putting it down. I'll admit that I cried and it's because you can feel everything for Ana coming off the pages. There are always second chances at love and the story is also sweet because out of tragedy, you can always find something good.

Ana and Grayson's chemistry is out of this world. Another amazing story by the talented Bella Emy. She's the best at describing emotions and it's hard not to connect to her characters. What an amazing emotional ride. This is a must read!
