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

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!

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).
Kelly is sassy, fun, loyal, and intelligent. She moved to Serendipity to be closer to Tess, but also to get away from a relationship that ended badly in New York. After how she was introduced in Serendipity, I really liked learning more about her. Kelly and Nash are great together! She is definitely a great support system when Nash gets some new information that forces him to reconsider his past.
I loved the secondary story lines! They were interesting while also being related to the events that directly impact Nash, Kelly, and their family.
Destiny picks up right where Serendipity ends. You could probably read Destiny as a stand alone book, but it continues story lines from Serendipity. I would definitely recommend reading this series! I can't wait to start on Karma!
Family, siblings, disputes, growing up, facing hard truths, mending fences falling in love, breaking up, resolutions. The stuff that mucks up and makes up everyday life.
I highly recommend this book and this author!
So far, I am really enjoying this series. It provides a fun contemporary read set within a family dynamic that I really enjoy. The first book featured Ethan, the oldest brother of the family and the pariah for abandoning the younger two, Nash and Dare, when their parents died suddenly when all three were teenagers. Nash is the middle brother and, like in most family dynamics, the most willing to hold a grudge. I liked the development of the relationship between Nash and Ethan in this book. Actually, that is probably my favorite thing about this book. I love how their relationship is evolving and becoming more rather than just confrontational. I love that this motley crew of a family is starting to grow back together, even though it is incredibly painful for them to get there.
Adding to that pain are Kelly and Tess. Tess is the half-sister, and teenage rebel, to the three Barron brothers. Kelly is her half sister on the other side of the family. Kelly is NOT a blood relation to the Barron boys, even though the family dynamic here is a little convoluted. Kelly & Nash are incredibly drawn to each other, even though they realize that a romance may not be the best thing for their troubled half sister. (You know, the family dynamic didn't seem as weird when I was reading the book as it does now, typing up this review...LOL!) Yes, it's a little odd, but it's a romance novel. You are expected to suspend disbelief a little bit.
I also really liked Nash's personal evolution in this book. Nash is a lawyer and he sees things in black or white. He is pretty staid in his beliefs and not very forgiving when someone does something that he doesn't agree with. When his solid world falls apart, he has to re-examine himself and how he reacts to other people.Read more ›
