Sophie Quinn's failed at marriage before, but after a few years living a free-spirited lifestyle she's ready to try love one more time. She moves into a quaint summer cottage on Silver Lake with a plan to find a new man, and her silver fox neighbor would be perfect, except for the fact he can't stand to be around her. When she finds out Warren is a werewolf, Sophie has no trouble moving on, even after she discovers they're true mates. But she doesn't count on the way their physical attraction takes her places she didn't know she wanted to go.
Warren Nelson has waited years to find his true mate, and when the sumptuous Sophie Quinn moves in next door he finds her. The problem is she's human, and recent events have reminded Warren why her kind is dangerous to his pack. Try as he might, he can't deny the need to be with his true mate, and he has to find a way to trust her as he convinces her he's worth the risk.
Warren finally found love . . . but he's soooooo awkward. It's cute. And Sophie. I've decided I'm a mix between the 2 sisters.
I received this book for an honest review. I so love this series. The Winter Valley Wolves has a special place in my heart. V. Vaughn does such an amazing job with this series. You cannot help but fall in love with each and every character. Romona Master did such an amazing job narrating. She has such a way of pulling you right into the story.
We were introduced to Sophie Quinn in book 8. Though I loved Sophie in the last book, I think you got to see a little more about her in this book. Her personality really shown threw. She was so funny. I loved how she talked to herself. She forgot that she was living in a town that had werewoloves. Which made it very interesting since she spoke whatever came to her mind. I can only imagine the thoughts that were going through Warren’s mind hearing what Sophie was thinking.
Warren Nelson was the beta of the Silver Lake pack. His alpha had been hounding him to take a mate. Warren wanted to find his true mate. Warren did not trust humans. Which made it hard being so attracted to Sophie.
I loved reading about Warren trying to get to know Sophie. It was hard for him. He wanted her so bad and there was no doubt in his mind that he was in love with her. He put her feelings and needs first. Though there were a few things he did not handle well.
Things get hot and heavy between Sophie and Warren. You might need a cold shower after you are through reading.
What made the experience of listening to Destined the most enjoyable?
I really enjoyed the more mature couple. They were still very lively and the steam had steam.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Sophie was a riot and fun, yet quiet, alpha silver fox--okay wolf, the guy was hot and when he decided to accept his fate he made it a real run.
Which scene was your favorite?
The opening scene and when she figured out what she was saying to herself was going to get her in big trouble.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Wanted to and did.
Any additional comments?
Listening to this fun book was just fun. I'd read the book and then listening to it was so good. Sophie and Warren, I love another more mature couple in this series. Sophie has come to spend time with her sister and niece. Mostly recovered from her divorce she would love to find a man to truly love her but not sure it will ever happen.
When she sees her neighbor, hot, really hot, other things cross her mind... or a little lower. Then he seems to ignore her. Okay, fine. When they finally talk he just lays it out. She is his mate and he doesn't trust humans.
Great the man has to love her but doesn't even like her.
Enjoy this romp with the guy everyone called crotchety. She's younger, but he is hot and the silver fox just does things to her. You will laugh out loud when she says under her breath what she's thinking, not knowing about his shifter hearing. You will be touched by the couple and their brief but interesting courtship. Ms. Vaughn can give us young teens, early twenty couples, middle range and even a little more mature and make them hot, fun and keepers. I know this whole series is a keeper for me.
I was provided an ARC for the book, however will be adding it to my buy list when the box set it available. Do not miss out on this final book of the series. In audio as well as print a real winner.
