After a freak accident leaves her best friend dead, Destiny Grable survives. However, fate has intervened and Destiny finds herself reincarnated into her best friend Zoe’s body. Destiny has found a second chance at life, but not at all in a way that she could have ever predicted. One moment she’s driving in a car with her best friend and the next she’s waking up in the hospital with Zoe’s ex-boyfriend Chance taking care of her. To make matters worse all of her old feelings for Chance are as str[rating=5]ong as ever. Fighting between her desire for Chance and her loyalty to Zoe, Destiny is conflicted to say the least.
Zoe’s estranged boyfriend, Chance Everett, has committed himself to bringing Zoe home just long enough for her to get on her feet and then it will be time for both to move on once and for all. Chance and Destiny have been friends pushed together by Zoe, but Destiny couldn’t help but develop more than a little crush on Chance along the way. What Destiny doesn’t know is that Chance harbored a crush of his own. Chance can’t help noticing how much Zoe has changed. Her aloof nature seems to have disappeared into a woman filled with life that hums as she cooks gourmet meals, engages is compelling conversation, even her laugh has changed. Destiny is falling more in love with chance by day. The chemistry between them is inflamed by sharing a bed & the discovery of Zoe & Chance’s treasure trove of spanking implements. The tension; both sexual and the irresistible pull these characters have for one another all while trying to fight it is intoxicating. The sex & erotic spanking scenes are hot, hot, hot! Rooting for them through it all is Destiny’s empathic and clairvoyant sister, Laura, who recognizes Destiny immediately. She also recognizes true love when she sees it and is not going to let Destiny give up her chance at happiness.
The story and characters had a depth that held my interest from page one. I could not help, but feel connected to each one of them, including Destiny’s sister Laura. In fact I connected so much with Laura that really hoping there will be a sequel in store for us featuring her as the lead character. Her story much be told! The mystical theme was fascinating. I am intrigued by the idea that true love can be so fated that one could be reincarnated into another’s body just to fulfill that destiny. I really enjoyed how different this story is from author, Cara Bristol’s other work. It’s a nice contrast to the contemporary domestic discipline novels that the author has written in the past. I, of course, am a big fan of both genres of spanking novels.
Destiny’s Chance is a fantasy at its romantic best. Are these star crossed lovers willing to take a chance and fulfill their destiny? You will have to read the book to find out and I highly recommend it!
