Book tour, review, & giveaway: Our Sweet Destiny, by Addison Cole


Discover the magic of the Bradens, and fall in love with Addison Cole’s rich and romantic storytelling.


After ditching a troubled relationship—and her veterinary practice in the process—Jade Johnson returns to the safety of her small hometown and finally finds her footing. That is…until her horse is injured and the son of the man her father has been feuding with for more than forty years comes to her rescue. She’s spent forever trying to deny her attraction to headstrong, too-handsome-for-his-own-good cowboy Rex Braden. The last thing she needs is that particular man complicating her life.

Fiercely loyal Rex Braden has never put anyone or anything before his family. Despite the irate family history, sparks fly between Rex and Jade, unleashing fifteen years of stifled, forbidden love—and causing the rebel in each of them to rear its powerful head.

Loyalties are tested, and relationships are strained as Rex and Jade find out if true love really can conquer all.

Our Sweet Destiny is a Sweet with Heat novel and conveys all of the passion you’d expect to find between two people in love without any graphic scenes or harsh language. If you’re looking for a more explicit romance, pick up the steamy edition, Destined for Love, written by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. Addison Cole is Melissa’s sweet-romance pen name.

**My Review**

Welcome to my stop on the tour for Addison Cole’s latest “sweet with heat” novel, Our Sweet Destiny! We met Rex Braden in the last novel, A Love So Sweet, and this is the incredibly romantic story about Rex and his neighbor, Jade Johnson. Rex and Jade have been crazy about one another for years – from afar. Due to a decades-old feud between their fathers, Rex and Jade as a couple seem to be an impossibility. But the more they are thrown together, whether by accident or fate, the harder it is to deny their feelings, despite the feud. 

Ahhh, Rex… What a sexy, sensitive, romantic, caring, hard-working, and close to perfection specimen of a man! If you had any doubt about Rex’s level of hotness in the previous novel, then that doubt will fly out the window once you start reading this! Jade is just as fantastic being the all-around ranch girl, has degrees as a veterinarian with specialties in acupuncture and therapeutic massage for horses, she’s beautiful, funny, and just a great person. So of course, I rooted for them from the very beginning.

Besides the primary story about Rex and Jade’s forbidden love, Our Sweet Destiny also includes some great touches of fate, kismet, and love that is meant to be. As in the previous novel, Rex’s Dad still talks to his late wife’s horse, Hope, as if he’s talking to his wife. Rex and Jade have an incredibly moving moment while out window shopping that confirms that they are meant to be. Plus, we learn a lot of good details from the past regarding Rex and Jade’s parents, their friendships, and the aftermath of the big blow-up between them. I am always a sucker for meant-to-be romances, but this one really touched my heart due to the tie-in with Rex’s mother. 

Although the stubbornness of the fathers was frustrating at times, this novel made my heart swell with happiness and brought tears of joy more than once. This one just oozes romance, but also has plenty of appearances by other friends and family members and I was crazy excited for the next novel about Josh and Riley! As usual with Addison Cole, I can’t recommend this one enough! Even if you haven’t read A Love So Sweet, you can still enjoy this one and I fell certain that you will love it!

One magnificent evening together sparked an intense connection, and for the first time in his life Treat wanted more than a casual affair. But something caused Max to turn away, and now, after weeks of unanswered phone calls and longing for the one woman he cannot have, Treat is going back to his family’s ranch to try to finally move on.
