Book Description

***If you love sexy firefighters then this book is for you. Fair warning, you will need a change of panties. You're welcome.***

This book can be read as a stand alone. You do not need to read Fatalism or Determinism first. 


Some secrets can destroy...


Bridgette Schaefer has been through more in her twenty-two years of life than most people survive in a lifetime. Finally, she can see the light at the end of the tunnel and control is within her grasp. With a fresh start ahead, there's nothing but blank pages to be filled. Unfortunately, a lie by omission quickly weaves itself into a dangerous web of half-truths. As she battles between right and wrong, she discovers that sometimes there is only defeat when it comes to matters of desire.


While others can set you free...


Troy Sorano has one rule - no lies. Yet he's spent years hiding behind a well-placed mask, forced to hide who he yearns to be. On the outside he's confident, fun, and sexy-as-sin, but there's so much more hidden within. When fate intervenes, he can't help but wonder if Bridgette could be the one to accept him for who he is. As he struggles through his fear of rejection, he discovers he's not the only one hiding the truth.


Can Bridgette and Troy find what is essential for their happiness before it's too late? 

***This book is an Erotic Romance novel and contains mature subject matter. It is not intended for those under 18 years of age.***



Editorial Reviews

About the Author

LK Collins is first and foremost a devoted wife and mother. She loves music and has openly admitted that she’s addicted to it. Without the strength of the words from some of her favorite artists, what she does…would not be possible. She works the normal 9 to 5 like the rest of the world, but is fortunate that she’s allowed to listen to music for eight hours a day. When she gets home, she turns into Superwoman; juggling the crazy world of being an indie author, a mom, and a wife. Both her daughter and her husband share names with famous presidents. Her husband is referred to by her readers as “the Prez”, a name well deserved. LK has had a passion for the worlds created by authors for as long as she can remember and with the support of the Prez, she has successfully self-published three titles in the Life. Destiny. Fate Series. While her books are erotica, they are also known for dramatic storylines that will keep the reader enthralled from page one. Not to mention that while she may write a series, each is a stand-alone novel offering the reader a happily ever after. No cliffhangers for this author!

5.0 out of 5 stars This series gets better and better!!!!!! April 17, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the third book in the Life.Destiny.Fate series and it tells the story of Bridgette and Troy.

Bridgette(Bridge) is Alexa’s little sister and now Cara’s roommate. Troy is a firefighter working with Abel. Both Troy and Bridge are fun, loving, and caring people. She’s beautiful and he’s one HOT specimen of a man. Because of their relationships with the other characters, Troy and Bridgette meet and form a friendship. They start off with texts, but the attraction is instant and explosive. They find that they can’t hold off much longer and really want to get together.

Bridge has a little secret, though; she has a boyfriend… a douche by the name of David, who turns out to be a possessive lunatic. Troy hates lies, although he’s keeping a secret of his own. When he finds out about the boyfriend, things don’t sit well with Troy and a little “break-up” between them takes place. By this time, Bridge has broken up with David and things don’t end well with him. Can Bridgette convince Troy of her feelings for him and will he agree to explore a relationship with her? Will revealing his secret scare her away?

There were so many emotions while I was reading this book. The whole gang from the previous books makes an appearance and there are some funny moments. We have love, anger, laughs, tears, and some very HOT sex. Troy and Bridge are so passionate and explosive together and their sex scenes can burn down the place, no matter where you are.

This story was just as good and exciting to read as the others, although they can each be read as a standalone. LK’s writing keeps getting better with each novel and I am definitely waiting for her other stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better and Better!! April 17, 2014
By Kim M.
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the third book in the Life. Destiny. Fate series.
Bridgette Schaefer just moved in with Cara, and is sisters with Alexa(bk.1) Bridgette is trying to start life new and fresh while looking for a career and dating.
Troy Sorano is a sex on a stick fireman. He and Bridgette build a friendship and they both can feel the sexual tension they feel towards one another.
The only problem is Bridgette is seeing someone and doesn't let Troy know. Troy is all about truth and honesty. Lies destroy relationships, he's learned it first hand.
They can't stay away from each other for long. The book is great and we get some Abel and Vincent in this book too! Making it even better!

Love you LK keep up the amazing writing! <3

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexy, witty, and suspenseful! April 17, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
L.K. Collins is BURNING UP THE PAGES in Essentialism. It’s sexy, witty, and suspenseful. While reading this story, you can tell that Ms. Collins put her heart and humor into this novel. The writing is very strong, and it flows flawlessly. The Life. Destiny. Fate novels are quality reads that will have you craving your very own love story. These stories keep getting better and better. First we had Fatalism, where I was immediately sucked in to the emotional rollercoaster, that we call Alexa and Vincent’s world. Passionate and intense, it just had me wanting more! Next up was Determinism, Cara and Abel’s story. If it was even possible, Ms. Collins created a story with even more heart, emotion, and heat. That brings us to the gem of a book I have in front of me now, Essentialism, Bridgette and Troy’s story. Here, we have a story about the struggles of relationships when one is forced to not be themselves; a story about growth and accepting who you are, and finding that one person in this world who will love you for you. It is beautiful, it is hella’ sexy, and it contains so much passion, you will not know what to do with yourself.

Bridgette Schaefer just moved into the neighborhood. She is trying to start her life, and job hunting is a top priority for her. Trying to get a hold of her ass of a boyfriend is another priority she can’t seem to shake. Meanwhile, her friendship with the gorgeous, sweet, attending firefighter is growing strong with every text message, every hug, and every sweet kiss on the cheek. Bridgette is so torn between her loyalty and the potential of something that could be really great and really special.

Troy Sorano, this man is SO sexy and SO charming. He has a heart of gold, and he takes care of the people he loves.

By Mary L

This is the 3rd book in the series. I loved it. ...Troy is so sexy! Bridgette is a sweetie who knows what her man needs and isnt afraid to try new things. They're amazing together and smoking hot! Bridgettes ex is a bit crazy but Troy is not a man to mess with. We get some Vincent and Abel.....which only makes it hotter! I wish there was a 10 star option because its 10 star worthy! :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Tie me up mister May 19, 2014
By Sonya
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. Troy was a sweet heart, but had a kinky side. Bridgette was a nice girl with a psycho ex. The story of the two starts off great. There are great sex scenes in the book if that's your thing. I'm all for hot and steamy, but felt toward the end of the book it was just sex and not much story. For example, they get married at the end , but there are no details, but a detailed sex
Scene . I felt like parts off the story that were unfinished.
