Review
What I want to know is how everyone doesn't know about this book yet!  The fact that this book is only .99 cents is crazy awesome.  With that price this book should be on everyones e-readers! Why you ask?  Well this story is captivating.  I had been in a bad reading mood with the books I had been reading and this book really turned it around.  I didn't want to put it down, and it was great getting this excited over a book again! Max really had me swooning.  He is a paramedic and he saves lives and that is just HOT!  The chemistry between them is ignited at first sight (well you probably can't call it first sight since Lauren has been dreaming about him for awhile).  The relationship is growing throughout the book, and I can't wait for book 2 to see more of it.  Lauren just seems like she is prone to trouble but maybe that is just her Destiny.  At least she has smokin' hot Max to come to her rescue.  This book really does end with a bang, and I am extremely anxious to pick up the second book (Destiny's Revenge)!

  4. Meeting Destiny is a terrific (older) young adult paranormal novel. The main character is in her twenties, about to graduate college, so her life is a bit more mature--although there is absolutely nothing R-rated about his book. Still, it's nice not to have to listen to an angsty teenager for a change.

    Lauren is authentic, easy to relate to and very likable, which is good because we are thrown directly into her life from page one! Nancy does a perfect job introducing each of the characters and weaving them all together very nicely. I could pick a person from my own life that would fit almost perfectly into most every role of the story--from the bratty kid to the meddlesome mother (not MY mother, of course!).

    The paranormal aspect of the story is handled brilliantly. Lauren's 'premonitions' are introduced very realistically, as if it is just something that comes naturally rather than something that is suddenly forced upon her. Even her bizarre connection and history with Max is written so that it is very believable and easy to digest. I think that really makes this novel more unique--there really is more of a contemporary fiction edge to it, even though it certainly has the paranormal elements. They don't really take center stage; Lauren's life is the focus. I love that!
