Description

Have you ever heard of the old Celtic legends of the Fae - beautiful, magical, deadly and a love of messing with humans just for kicks and giggles?
Welcome to my world.
What started out as a strange assignment, leads to one of the most gruesome murder mysteries of our times and my friends and I are set and determined to find out who is killing off Fae and Witches alike.
Couple of problems in the way – I hate the Fae and the Prince of the Dark Fae is bound and determined that I work for him. He’s a rude, overbearing egotistical ass with a compulsive need to possess, dominate and control me. Oh – did I mention that he is absolutely sex-on-a-stick gorgeous and he makes me feel things that I never ever wanted to feel for a Fae…every time he touches me or looks at me with those golden eyes seems to pull me further in under his spell, despite my better judgment.
My friends and I can’t trust anyone and nothing is as it seems on the surface – not even me.

    The sex scenes are hot, characters are hot. The plot build up and story telling are lacking. Scenes w/in the story would jump from one to the next without much build up or transition so I found myself having to go back and ask where they were or how they got to the next scene. The dialogue between the characters wasn’t always outlined well so I couldn’t always tell who was saying what? The next couple of books that I’ve read so far improve on that score and the concept is really fascinating! But if you’re reading this for a strong female lead with complex character development....this ain’t that kinda story, lol. And that doesn’t improve w/ the next novels. It’s steamy and that’s what it delivers on.
  • Awesome in theory

    Honestly this plot was interesting, but the character interactions lended themselves towards legit harassment and non-consensual interactions to the extent that it took me out of the story. Yeah it’s an adult book so I was expecting adult content, and there was psychic understanding of desire, but overall way too non-con for me to enjoy while not drunk. It was good but I’ve read better fics on AO3

    Wow, I could not put this book down. The characters were strong and brave giving the story backbone. Exciting and nail biting ending.............ok maybe not the end, but it sets you up perfectly for the next book. It does have some tear jerking spots. Great Book

    I honestly wonder if I missed something. 🤷‍♀️ I do not believe I read the same book as those giving it five stars—one reviewer calling it a masterpiece. I disagree but respect their opinion. I will be honest and say I did not finish this book. I tried, but couldn’t force my way through it. I would not recommend it. That being said, there is potential if the storyline is adjusted slightly. Unfortunately, a complete overhaul of the female lead is necessary. The author “told” us the protagonist was intelligent—a skilled assassin and thief—but that was not “shown” by her words, actions, or deeds. The character’s dialogue is quite awful in many places. And the “relationship” with the so-called love interest is toxic at best. He violates her, plain and simple, and we are to believe it's love? Nope, sorry, not even close. Any intelligent woman (or Fae, in this case) would have run and never looked back. Saying “I hate you” after he violates her is how an immature child reacts. A strong female lead —a trained assassin—would've killed him during his first attempt and stepped over his twitching corpse, careful to avoid getting blood on her stilettos, while deciding what to eat for dinner. I do believe if you make some revisions this could be a solid book. I wish you luck on the journey to find your voice as an author. 🙂

    Okay, to be frank. What I can say, is I was so upset that Fighting Destiny ended the way it day! To the point i am buying book 2 tonight! I seriously wish this was an Actual t.v series’s. I feel a lot of people would absolutely love this! I don’t normally leave book reviews, but this one. Girl you got it in the bag! It’s juicy, drama, thrilling, danger. It’s an amazing book, I can’t wait to read the next. Will do another review soon. Keep up the AMAZING work!!! This series is ART 😇🥰

    I really wanted to like this series, but i just couldn’t. I loved the idea of the story, but it was missing so much. I did not find the writing to be that great, especially in the beginning. It did get a little better with each book, but i couldn’t make myself read past the 4th book. I only made it to the 4th book because, like i said, i liked the story itself and wanted to know what happened. The sex scenes are also very cheesy and i ended up skipping through the majority of them.

    This was like a mix between crescent city and a court of thorns and roses. A Mystery with a really hot sexy fae male. Highly recommend 👍🏼

    It’s CSI: witches and fae... terrible! Weak and contrived storyline. It’s so bad and unoriginal, I had to force myself to keep reading hoping the story got better but I only managed to read a quarter of the book. Couldn’t stop my involuntary eye rolls from all the absurdities!
