Destined Hearts by K.K. Allen ~ Amy’s Review

WHY I READ IT

K.K. Allen very quickly became a one click author for me after I read her coming of age  novel Up In the Treehouse.

WHAT I RATED IT

WHAT IT’S ABOUT

He stole her lyrics, and then he stole her heart.

Lyric Cassidy is off the tour, lost as to what her next career move will be, and certain that she’ll never love again after Wolf. All because of a social media scandal that left her with no choice but to pack up and face the consequences. When she learns that the fate of her career is in her hands, she has a difficult decision to make. Step back on the tour bus with Wolf and deal with the mess she left behind, or end her contract early and lose her job at Perform Live?

Wolf’s shattered heart finds no resolve in giving Lyric a chance to come back on tour. He can never be with her again. Not after she walked away. Conflicted with wants and needs, he struggles to remember who Wolf was before Lyric. That’s what he needs to become again. Maybe then his heart will be safe. Or maybe there’s no hope for the damaged.

But with stolen dreams, betrayals, and terrifying threats—no one’s heart is safe. Not even the ones that may be destined to be together.

AMY’S REVIEW

 

I went into this book with so many questions.  How would this all work out?  Would it be Wolf or Lyric working towards a reconciliation?  Where did the rest of the band stand?  Her family?  Everything was so up in the air at the end of Dangerous Hearts that the storyline could have really gone anywhere and I was eager to see where K.K.’s mind would take it.

With my expectations high K.K. met and exceeded every one of them.  These characters were strong, well thought out, and entertaining in the first book but, in the second they went from amazing to outstanding.  The growth of the author between each book was staggering.  The growth of her characters took the book from good to fantastic.  I was engaged, emotional, full of anticipation, and cheering these characters on like they were real life friends.

In a book world where predictable storylines are all too common if was a surprise and relief to read a story with so many unexpected twists and turns.  A story with characters who did the unexpected, fought for what they wanted, and didn’t play games.  K.K. knows how to write a story that will keep you guessing until the end and begging for more when you get there.
