Flirting with Destiny by Eve Carter Blog Tour

"Damn my father and damn this trip. He died and left his affairs in a mess for me to settle. If I return to my hometown, I know the inevitable will happen. I'll run into Lauren Mitchell! When someone blasts a hole on your heart, like Lauren did to me, it tends to stay open and seeing her again will not ease the pain."

Aedyn Dell Cumberland left his small hometown after watching his mother pass away in the hospital the night of his high school graduation. In the years to follow he distanced himself completely from the small town and was transformed from a member of the geek squad to a handsome and successful businessman.

When he finally returns to attend his father's funeral, he runs into his high school crush, Lauren Mitchel. Old feelings he'd wanted to be left buried are stirred up until he learns about Lauren's short-tempered boyfriend.

Can a couple miss their destiny the first time, and then get another chance at it? Or will Aedyn's heart remain a puppet for which Lauren holds the strings?

Aedyn left his small hometown and made it big. His father died and now he has to go back. Lauren was Aedyn’s secret crush in high school; she stayed in the small town and has been dating Chip for the last four years. A chance meeting has both of them thinking of each other. Are Lauren and Aedyn happy with their lives as they are or will they fight for what they really want deep down inside? This book started out smoking hot!!! Then it just seemed to peter out for me. Then right at the end it started to get good again and then BAM it was done.

Characters: The characters were well written and believable.
Sex: Yes
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

This is the first in a series of novellas, so there is no conclusion, just a ... what will happen next. It started off at a pace, introducing one of the lead characters in a maybe less than favourable light – which possibly affected my view of him thereon in. The female lead is completely the opposite – cautionus, somewhat desperate, and resigned to her future. When the two meet there is a potential for change, but they faff around somewhat. Some of it was undoubtedly hot, and one scene was brilliantly written leading the reader one way and then adding a twist.

Potentially the next books could turn this around, but I wasn't entirely convinced by the characters, or their inner voices.

I am a true romantic at heart and with a modern contemporary erotic twist to my romance novels, you had better fasten your seat belt, as the ride is always fun, exciting and fiery.

Living in Southern California, but a mid-westerner at heart, I find plenty of inspiration for my books in my own exciting life. I have always loved the arts and as a young girl, I took dance classes and spent the summers reading books from the local library. Fascinated with the written word and its power to guide the imagination, I started writing short stories and later took Creative Writing classes in college. I graduated from The University of Iowa with a B.A. in Journalism and an M.A. in Higher Education. I also have a Teaching Credential from Chapman University in Southern California.
