When Jenny Tolliver catches her husband in a compromising position with another woman, he boldly announces that Jenny is “too sweet to have the kind of sex I want.” After divorcing the “rat bastard,” she returns to her hometown of Destiny, Ohio, determined to shake her “June Cleaver” persona.
Enter Mick Brody, youngest of the two dangerous Brody brothers. When Jenny trespasses on their supposedly deserted side of the lake, they have an encounter like none Jenny has ever experienced. The fire that burns between them is too hot to extinguish, and one clandestine meeting turns into another and another. Soon Jenny’s heart begins wrapping itself around Mick’s rough spirit, and the relationship becomes more than just sex. But Mick has a secret that could send him to prison for a long time. Can “good” Jenny keep what she knows from her police chief father, or will her conscience overrule her heart?
Although this starts off as your classic good-girl-meets-bad-boy love story, there are a few twists and turns that make it worthwhile. It is the first novel in the new “Destiny” series by the prolific Toni Blake set in the same small town and circling around those familiar residents.
