My Review

Holy Cow friends.. get you some tissues ready.  Always Meant to Be is about to plow right over every feel you have and shred them to bits. From the moment you crack this story you will be in for one heck of an emotionally poignant and perfectly unforgettable book journey.  Secrets, lies, hidden touches and frustration galore. Every moment of their inevitable yet forbidden love will tear you up. Scene after delicious scene intertwines forlorn feelings, heat filled stolen moments and plenty of angst and aggravation. 

At first glance it seems like both of these characters have the perfect lives. Vander comes from an extremely wealthy family with a very successful and influential father. But behind closed doors is family is anything but the picture perfect persona they present to the public. But Vander has it bad for his best friend’s mother, Kendall and wants to do whatever he has to do to prove to her that they are meant for one another. 

Kendall married her high school sweetheart, had three children whom she absolutely adores and built herself a career. But her home life is a facade put on for the world by her “perfect husband” to portray the ultimate dream family. He is anything but a picture perfect husband and poor Kendall is lonely and suffering silently to protect her children and keep a family intact for them. But deep down she can’t help but to want the one man she can’t have, her son, West’s best friend Vander. Especially when he goes out of his way to show her how it feels to truly be treasured. 

You will find yourself so wrapped up in the heartache and torment this book puts you through. Siobhan Davis is going to shred you to pieces before she puts you back together like the master story crafter she is. I’m not going to give specific things away, I will just say go in blind. Fall in love with these characters’ hearts. Fall for their devotion to each other, to the ones they love most and to their willingness to each sacrifice their own wants for the other. Fall hard for this inevitable love story that knows no boundaries. Not time, distance, family, or any other outside interferences can ultimately keep apart a love that is so clearly fated. 

This book is beautifully written. It will burrow down into your soul and plant itself there. It’s sexy and intriguing. It’s got a relatable storyline that makes you feel every emotion along with these characters. The pushes, and  pulls. The obstacles they must overcome and the fear of losing everything in order to be with the other half of your soul. I am still feeling this book days later. Vander is swoony and smooth. He’s so talented and mature far beyond his years. Kendall is so loyal and giving and she deserves so much better than the life she has. She deserves everything good in life and Vander wants to give it to her and much more. Will they ever have the opportunity to give into what has Always Meant to Be? 

Five Fated from the Start Stars!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Excerpt

VANDER 

“You belong with someone your own age,” she counters after a few intense beats. She pulls her hand away from my face and averts her gaze. “You deserve to find someone young and pretty without any complications. I want you to be happy. I want that for you so much.” 

“My happy place is you.” I reel her into my body, clamping my hands on her lower back to stop her from wriggling free. “You make me happy. I don’t want any other girl. I never have, and I never will. I only want you.” 

“Vander, please.” Tipping her chin up, she stares at me with tears in her eyes. “Please forget about me and find someone else.” 

I shake my head. “It won’t happen. I can’t tell my heart how to feel.” Taking her hand, I place it over my chest, hoping she can feel the steady thrumming of my heart. “This is yours, Kendall, whether you want it or not. It doesn’t matter if you don’t claim it, it will always beat only for you.”

My Review

I am such a jumble of emotions over The Jezebel. Dylan Allen always writes the most fantastically poignant stories. Tales that draw you in to the point you are so wrapped up, so invested in the lives of the characters you feel every shock, and barb to the heart along with them. You also celebrate the successes, feel the burden of the hurts and fears and fist pump in the air when they finally overcome adversities. 

That’s what this story was for me. It was riveting and special. Regan Wilde and Stone Rivers are the star crossed lovers, who were never supposed to be together. This phenomenal reverse age-gap, forbidden, brother’s best friend’s romance is like no other.  

This isn’t a tale of the rich cougar, shacking up with the hot young guy on vacay. This is about two souls that were born for each other, who were inevitable. A man and a woman from families that have deep rooted hatred for each other and were never supposed to be. Dreamers that hoped for the day when they could freely be together, not just bask in stolen moments. Will they ever be able to combat all the crap life will throw their way when their secret is discovered? 

“You’re my Venus and I’m your Mars.”

Regan is stunning and sassy and resilient. Over the course of her college years through when she meets Stone again she endures some of the most horrific things. How the Jezebel comes about. OMG. My poor heart. There were moments when I didn’t think I could take another moment. It was excruciatingly heartbreaking. But the complexity of her character was awe inspiring and you could help but to root for her to get back everything she deserved and more.

Stone Rivers was a brilliant, broken boy the first time she saw him. As a man Stone was beautiful, and deliciously dirty. He was everything she needed and wasn’t supposed to have at the same time. He became something wonderful with his life. He could have been a cocky player but he was good to his core. I love this man. I wanted him to have the goddess of his dreams forever. But I wasn’t sure if it was in the cards for him. I loved that he took what time he had with Regan to build her up, to give her confidence and strength.

GAH! This book was magically written. It captures everything from the chemistry between them, the overwhelming angst, the heart-wrenching moments and even funny moments. All of it together made this story the perfect- unputdownable, invested until the last sentence, rollercoaster of emotions. It’s one of those books you can’t stop reading so you devour, but want to savor at the same time. Because you know when the time comes you won’t be ready to let these characters go. It’s faced paced, engaging and unexpected. This is the third stand-alone book in the Rivers Wilde series. Told in dual POV get ready to get emotional as you join Stone and Regan on their incredible journey. It wouldn’t be easy but it would be worth fighting for. In the end love should conquer all, right?! 

“This is us—Wicked, Wanton, Wild and really fucking happy.”
