Destiny Plays, book two in the Santini bothers' series, is a sweet and sexy story. Christos and Kate meet by chance one rainy Halloween night and find there's an immediate and inexplicable connection. But they live such opposite lives- he's an established lawyer in his home state of California and she's a veteran actress with a well respected career of her own that takes her from coast to coast. Is there any way these two such different people can possibly make things work?
It was really nice to read a story about 2 more "mature" characters. For a minute there I thought this was going the way of so many storylines lately, with the older man swept up by the younger woman. I was glad to see it didn't!
I appreciated the conflicts Christos and Kate both faced- how just like in real life you can still question what you're doing with your life, no matter what your age. I liked how much they were drawn to each other, and the romance and sweetness of their story. I liked that that they didn't waste time and play games. I enjoyed watching them both fall, and dealing with those feelings.
And it was great to see the Santini gang again, what a wonderful family!
Now I just need to transport myself to St. Helena, CA quick, before all the Santini brothers are snatched up! Sadly, with Christos and Nash both taken, the pickings are starting getting slim, but I'm not giving up yet!
Christos and Kate , they are so beatiful, I love they are no so young , in a bad and sad moments in their lives, feeling alone without this passion on life only living , existing, but no really living.
This family is amaizin I lo ove them so much , they are so warm, made the life of everyone's happy.
Thanks for give us this beatiful novella, I'm your fan forever and ever!! And Oh!!the little thanks , awesome!!
Thank you and I can't wait for your next book!!
A rainy Halloween night brings attorney, Christos Santini, and actress, Kate Cornell, together and the sparks (and claws) fly! I love that our hero and heroine are both a bit older and more mature than the typical couples seen in romance books. They may not have known exactly how to deal with all the new emotions and feelings as their relationship began, but they both recognized that what they shared was special and extraordinary. I really liked both Christos and Kate, individually and together, and was rooting for them to find their happily ever after. Leslie Pike knows how to pull on those heartstrings and she packs quite the emotional punch in this novella.
Though the story focuses on Christos, don't worry, the rest of the Santini family make appearances too. I especially enjoyed catching up with Nash and Farrah, who appeared in book 1 of this series, Destiny Laughs. The epilogue left me with a huge smile on my face and I'm excited to see what the author has in store for the Santini family next!
*I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*
Cristos is a hard-working, yet somewhat unfulfilled lawyer who encounters Kate on the side of the road while he was on his way to spend time with his family on Halloween. Kate, a woman in her early 40s who is confident in her acting abilities (as she has spent the majority of her adult life playing roles in Shakespearian plays), is a little unsettled herself, as she is getting older and no longer of the age to play many of the acting roles that she has in the past. Sparks fly when these two meet, and destiny certainly plays them!
I loved revisiting St. Helena, California in this story. I loved revisiting this family as well, while watching them begin to fall in love. While at first I didn't connect with Cristos and Kate- Kate a little more so, it didn't take long for me to love her, and these two together.
I hope there is more for this nosy family- I'm thinking we may have encountered the next female lead toward the end (at least I hope so; I want to see her settled and happy)!
