Review: Fighting Destiny by Amelia Hutchins

I couldn’t wait for the Fighting Destiny’s Blog Tour to post my review! When the tour arrives here on Sex and the Books, I’ll just post it again, I might even add a few more things! 🙂

Fighting Destiny

Rating: 5 sexy stars

Goodreads Synopsis:

Have you ever heard of the old Celtic legends of the Fae – beautiful, magical, and deadly creatures that have a love of messing with humans just for kicks and giggles?

Welcome to my world.

What started out as a strange assignment, lead to one of the most gruesome murder mysteries of our times. My friends and I are set and determined to find out who is killing off Fae and Witches alike.

Couple of problems in the way – I hate the Fae and the Prince of the Dark Fae is bound and determined that I work for him. He’s a rude, overbearing egotistical ass with a compulsive need to possess, dominate and control me. Oh – did I mention that he is absolutely sex-on-a-stick gorgeous and he makes me feel things that I never ever wanted to feel for a Fae…every time he touches me or looks at me with those dangerous golden eyes he seems to pull me further in under his spell, despite my better judgment.

My friends and I can’t trust anyone and nothing is as it seems on the surface – not even me.

My Review:

First of all, thank you Amelia Hutchins for the copy of Fighting Destiny for  honest review 🙂

When I first received the information about the Blog Tour for it (and also when I first learned about it) I almost let it pass…thank God I didn’t though!  I would have missed one of the best books I’ve read. Definitely one of my top 5 favorite paranormal!

You want to know what got me to want to read it? These words right here (copied from the book’s synopsis): “He’s a rude, overbearing egotistical ass with a compulsive need to possess, dominate and control me. Oh – did I mention that he is absolutely sex-on-a-stick gorgeous and he makes me feel things that I never ever wanted to feel…”.

I normally don’t like Fae books. I used to be an avid paranormal romance reader, but somehow I just stopped reading paranormal. No reason, but for the difficulty in finding really good ones. I just turned to my romances (specially my beloved dark ones).  And again, I’m so glad I read this one book, because it has everything that makes a good story and AMAZING book.
The good-story-to-tell part is very important for a successful book, but knowing just how to tell this story is the key to make it BLOW YOUR FREAKING MIND!

And Amelia Hutchins has so much talent to tell a story!

This was a hot read from the beginning, but it’s not only the sexiness in Ryder’s character or how funny Syn was (I just love her name!!).
Ryder is the badass of all badasses and I loved how possessive he would get and his cockiness and jerkish ways. I love me some jerk LOL

You won’t be able to stop reading this book once you start it. It will be freaking impossible! You’ll be sucked into your book or reading device and when you’ll notice, the story ended and you will be in desperately need of book 2!

Even for the ones who doesn’t like paranormal stories, this one will suck you in! It’s not only about the Fae or the Witches, it’s about fighting for what you believe and stand by your ideals between so much more other feelings.

The lust between Syn and Ryder is evident since the very beginning, but it’s not it that makes the story keep going. Oh no, it’s the greatness of this story itself!

I don’t have enough words and I’m having difficulty in explaining how good this book was!

And there’s more yet to come..Big secrets that Syn just started to discover, she just cracked a tiny bit of their surfaces, and I know these secrets will blow our minds even more!

The Fae might be beautifully dangerous and the witches might be powerful but none of them stand ground between Syd and Ryder’s unite power and force! I love those too! Syn is made of real feelings and besides being a paranormal character she is very real and relatable! I just love her obsession with OPI and during some (difficult to read) parts of this book my heart broke for her and I cried for and with her!
But I have every confidence in her and in her ability to heal and become more, become more powerful and even better than she already is!

Ryder baby, who do you think you’ll fooling…you’re crazy about Synthia! Just freaking give in you two!!

Amelia Hutchins congratulation for writing such a GREAT story! As I already said to you, thank you allowing Syn and Ryder to tell us their story through you! You rock!!!

You won’t regret clicking her book! Here is the link to buy it on Amazon!

Amelia, I can’t wait for the second book! You got me hooked, girl!!!
