Synopsis courtesy of Goodreads
Welcome to Destiny, Ohio—where coming home means finding your true heart and maybe even your true love.

Tessa Sheridan came crawling back home to Destiny after her big city interior design career crumbled. Now not only must she struggle to make ends meet, she has to contend with a biker next door and the roar of Harleys shattering the serenity of her cabin in the woods. Worse still, her sexy bad boy neighbor makes her feel breathless and weak—and shy, petite Tessa knows what a major mistake it would be to get involved with someone so…dangerous.

They say that former teen rebel Lucky Romo has a dark, secret past—that he’s trouble with a capital “T.” Still, Tessa feels all tingly when she sees how well he fills out a pair of tight jeans. And when Lucky invites her into his world, she knows the intense heat sparking between them could lead her somewhere wild and wonderful…and, yes, dangerous!


Surprise, I picked this up after hearing about this on the DBSA podcast. Sarah mentioned the heroine had Chron's and my ears perked up. I love these kinds of stories and I've never seen one that featured Chrons.

This was a very nice small-town contemporary romance. It had all those cute small town things I love. The writing was solid. Sometimes the word choice was odd. Tessa didn't always speak naturally. But it wasn't too jarring and Lucky's voice worked.

The romance was executed well. It was a little rushed like most romances, but still seemed believable. And it was nice to see bad-ass Lucky be so sweet and emotionally vulnerable. Not all authors would've made that choice. And the motorcycle club thing was handled well. Ms. Blake shows the good and bad sides of that culture.

I feel like I end a lot of my reviews this way, but this is my first Toni Blake and I do plan on reading at least the other books in this series.

Thanks for reading!
