Christy Knight grew up in Destiny, Ohio, but lately she feels that her future lies elsewhere. Her parents are gone and the beautiful jewelry she creates doesn’t pay the bills. Maybe it’s time for Christy to grow up and find a guy who’s smart, sexy, and solvent. Her rugged handyman neighbor fits the first two categories, but he’s all wrong for her. If only he didn’t have such captivating blue eyes.
Wary of trusting others, Jack DuVall hasn’t been entirely honest with Christy. He’s not really a handyman. He’s not really broke. And sharing the long drive to visit her beloved grandpa isn’t just about gallantry—he finds gorgeous, feisty Christy completely irresistible.
When secrets are exposed, Jack and Christy struggle to find their way back to one another, but the quirky seaside town of Coral Cove could prove the perfect place to find a red-hot destiny of their own.
Christy is a woman with the weight of the world on her shoulders. She’s desperate for cash and decides to try to catch a rich man who can help her with her money problems. Her motives are not only selfish though. She also needs to help her Grandpa out financially or he’ll be kicked out of his assisted living place.
Jack is a handiman and neighbor of Christy’s. They don’t know each other well at all. One night Christy is locked out of her home and she talks Jack into breaking the door down so she can get ready for her date with a rich man. Jack has been hurt by a money hungry woman before, so despite his attraction to her he knows he needs to keep his distance. Unfortunately, he can’t stay away from her. Even going as far as escorting her to Florida to visit her Grandpa.
I loved Toni Blake’s Destiny series. I even love the side stories in her books. This one was just not good for me. I didn’t like the characters or the side story. I couldn’t wait to be done.
