*Review* A Little Like Destiny by Lisa Suzanne

Genre: Erotic Romance
Published: August 31, 2017


Reserved and responsible Reese Brady refuses to miss her chance with bad boy rock star Mark Ashton. After one steamy night, she's convinced the emotional connection they shared was just a figment of her imagination. After all, he’s a womanizer whose affairs are highly publicized.

Reese strives to leave that night behind her after a handsome business mogul asks her to dinner. Her relationship with Brian Fox quickly escalates into something meaningful, but Reese never expects the secret that emerges when he finally invites her to his penthouse.

She fell in love with a rock star the last time she was there. How could she know she’d fall in love with his brother next?


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 boring than Las Vegas. That doesn't mean that they don't have lives too though, and that's something I never really thought about as a kid, not even really during my teenage years. Granted, almost all of my teachers were married with kids, so it was a slightly different dynamic. I really enjoyed this glimpse into the potential summer life of a youngish schoolteacher. I also spent an inordinate amount of time having to remind myself that teachers are people too because somehow I ended up with rather puritan ideals where teachers are concerned. 

Reese is a good girl who normally lives up to my puritan ideals for school teachers all on her own. But she can't resist the temptation of spending the night with THE Mark Ashton. Being a good girl, she's not equipped with the skills to successfully engage in a one and done relationship however. In order to get over Mark, she decides to get under Brian. I found her reaction to the one-night stand very believable considering what I know about her personality. 

Even though I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to be rooting for Reese and Brian to go the distance, I just can't. There is something about Brian that is setting off alarms for me. There just seems to be some shady stuff going on with him. 

Finally, the ending really caught me off guard, and that's not easy to do. And when you get there yourself, you'll understand what I'm talking about.

Overall I give A Little Like Destiny 5 out of 5 stars. - Katie
