Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

In Phillips’ second contemporary romance with light suspense elements set in the upstate New York town of Serendipity and focused on the Barron brothers, paralegal Kelly Moss starts rebuilding her own life now that her young half-sister, Tess, is comfortably settled. Annie, Kelly’s current employer’s daughter, soon becomes Kelly’s good friend. But when Kelly learns that Nash Barron, to whom she is incredibly attracted, is Annie’s overprotective ex-husband, Kelly does her best to protect her heart while sharing responsibility for Tess during Faith and Ethan Barron’s honeymoon. Meanwhile, past scandals, shadowy threats, and Nash’s own difficulties combine to provide a rocky road for romance. Phillips offers a more in-depth look at the Barron family issues than Serendipity (2011) provided as Kelly and the brothers work together for Tess’ sake while coming to understand, if not totally accept, one another’s choices. --Lynne Welch


Destiny just became my favorite book I've read this year. I loved seeing Nash change as his and Kelly's story progressed. As much as I loved Serendipity, I loved Destiny even more! In my opinion, The Serendipity series is the best series ever by Carly Phillips. ~ Liza's Blog

Carly Phillips is one of the best storytellers there is. I have loved each of her series, and they get better and better. However my absolute favorite series of hers is Serendipity. GRADE A. The Book Reading Gals -

Reviewer Top Pick - Carly Phillips' books are like a bar of chocolate - when you get to the last bite/page you can't help but want more. Luckily there is still one more story in this trilogy. NIGHT OWL REVIEWS

Loved this second book of the series can't wait for the 3rd one.
This story is a great mix of intriguing characters that are in a very complex family situation but make it exciting to read.

I have to admit, I so loved the first book in this series, Serendipity, that I was almost afraid to read this story.

Both Nash Barron and Kelly Moss are cynical when it comes to love. Experience has taught each of them to guard their heart. Kelly's mother had a long ago affair with Nash's father, an affair that resulted in Kelly's now 13 year old sister Tess. With Tess running with the wrong crowd and getting into trouble, Kelly had no choice but to come to Nash and his brothers for help with her. A situation which puts Nash and Kelly in constant contact with each other and before long they act on the attraction between them. Neither wants to fall in love but that doesn't stop it from happening. With Nash's stubborn refusal to give into the emotion between them and the secret that Kelly is keeping, can they find a happily ever after together?

Destiny Rocks!! I have to admit, I so loved the first book in this series, Serendipity, that I was almost afraid to read this story. Would it be as good? Would I be disappointed? I am happy to say that from the first book to the second story, Carly Phillips knocks it out of the park. She doesn't forget the beloved characters from the first story, making them wonderful secondary characters, while still giving Nash and Kelly plenty of attention and cleverly setting up the next book in the series, leaving me marking days on the calendar for more. Readers can't go wrong picking up this story and will quickly find themselves enthralled!

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Harriet Klausner #1 HALL OF FAME on January 3, 2012
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In Serendipity, New York, Nash Barron attends the wedding of his older brother Ethan to Faith (see Serendipity). He knows he remains angry with his sibling for dumping him and their younger brother Dare into the foster care system ten years ago. Dare the cop forgave Ethan but Nash has not. He is also upset with Kelly Moss who brought her teenage half-sister Tess to Serendipity to live with the youngster's older half-brothers. Part of his ire with Kelly is his attraction to her, which she ignores and he must ignore for Tess' sake. Finally Nash cannot comprehend why his wife left him as he muses why loved ones leave him.

Kelly wants Nash, frown and all, but refuses to act on her feelings as Tess's needs come first. Still she would not mind some fun with the perpetual frowner though she also fears her scandal will see the light of day leading to his loathing her.

The second Serendipity contemporary romance is an engaging tale starring a fully developed lead pair and a strong support cast mostly the extended family. The straight-lined plot follows the expected course, but the hot-blooded relationship between the two degrees of separation is a fun tale as Nash and Kelly feel like Destiny's darlings (not).

Destiny is nice read with good characters and a well-written story. Nash Barron is a lawyer who sees things in black and white which causes a great deal of strife among his family. While I can understand his initial antagonism toward his brother Ethan, I felt if he had put aside his self-righteous anger and listened to his older brother, things between them would have changed sooner than they did in the course of the book.

Kelly is a paralegal who has moved to town to be closer to her half-sister, Tess, who is being co-parented by Ethan (Tess' half-brother). While she is there for Nash when he needs a shoulder to lean on or someone to talk to about his past or how he feels about his family relationships, Kelly doesn't give him the same level of trust. She holds back a secret about her past that is a truly innocent event that got blown out of proportion. She encourages him to grow as a person, to see things from another's perspective, but doesn't do the same things herself.

Overall, there wasn't anything that stood out to me that made this a complex or dynamic story. While I liked the characters, they didn't resonate with me or stay with me after I'd read the last page. Reading it is a good way to pass the time if you don't have anything else to do.

I have always been and forever will be a fan of anything Carly Phillips! From the moment I picked up the first book in this series, Serendipity, I was instantly in love. Of all the books Carly writes, I would have to say these stories of small town romances would have to be my favorite! I guess I am just a sucker for the old school, there is someone out there for everyone, fall in love with your soulmate type of stories. (:

I fell for this story and it's main characters for many reasons. As we learned in Serendipity, Nash and Kelly were not portrayed as the best people. Kelly, who basically dropped Tess off on Ethan's door step and ran has a bit to do to redeem herself in alot of readers eyes. Nash, who comes across as angry and unable to let anything go, most of all the resentment towards Ethan, has a obstacles to overcome before he can move forward. Perfect couple right?!

Nash, the middle brother of 3 is the only brother who hasn't gotten to know Tess all that well. Then along comes Kelly. Talk about having your hands full! As you read you watch as Nash goes through just about ever emotion possible, all while trying to fight off the strongest one of all. His feelings for Kelly. We watch as he struggles to fight these feelings as he's afraid it will destroy the relationship he is building with Tess.

Kelly has come back to Serendipity to be close to Tess, as well as to give herself a new life, in a new place. One that doesn't involve the past she is so desperately trying to forget. Little does she realize just how full her plate is about to get. While working on things with her sister, adjusting to life in a new place, as well as getting to know everyone involved in Tess' life now, she finds herself falling for Nash. Oh fun!
