Before the heartbreak, the life-altering choices, and real life closed in on them, they were just two kids in love.
Nick Sutter, the town bad boy, star of Pittsford High School’s football team, and all around playboy wasn’t used to having to work for dates. Leah Carmichael, Pittsford’s Golden Girl, and star on the track team had no desire to land a boyfriend. When she walked into Physics class on the first day of school her junior year, and realized who was in her class, she vowed to ignore him. Nick had no intention of letting her off the hook though. He patiently waited until the right moment to let her know he wanted her.
Unable to resist him, Leah agreed to go on a date. Try as she might, the feelings she’d been suppressing all year came to the surface, and washed over her like a tidal wave. She wanted him, and he wanted her, but…Nick had scouts ready to make his football dreams a reality.
Deciding that Leah was more important than his future, Nick gave up his chance to play at the college level. He chose to stay behind, and build the foundation for what he thought would be a solid future for him and Leah. Only Leah had other plans… she wanted to get out of Pittsford as fast as possible, and was willing to give up anything to do it, including Nick. When the Olympic scouts offered her a chance of a lifetime, she couldn’t tell them ‘no.’
We saw forgiveness in Shattered, desire in Restored, and unconditional love in Renewed. Now, see how it all started in Destined- Nick and Leah’s beginning.
Review by Jennifer: This was a great addition to the Shattered series. If you haven’t read the other books in the series, then you should start with this one. This book is 0.5. I loved being able to go back and see how it all began. Even knowing what would happen, since I’ve read the rest of the series before this, didn’t make it any easier when Leah was faced with her toughest choice. Stay with Nick or follow her dreams of being an Olympian. It was great to see how they fell in love, the struggle Leah had with being able to let go and actually admit to herself that she had feelings for Nick. The chemistry between them is amazing. The struggle is also heartbreaking. Go grab this whole series now!
All of Heather’s novels flow well for me and I get lost in the world she’s created. I can’t wait to read more from her!
