Welcome to Destiny, Ohio—where coming home means finding your true heart and maybe even your true love
Tessa Sheridan came crawling back to her quaint hometown of Destiny after her big-city interior design career crumbled. Now not only must she struggle to make ends meet, but she has to contend with a biker next door and the roar of Harleys shattering the serenity of her cabin in the woods by Whisper Falls.
Worse still, her sexy, bad boy neighbor makes her feel breathless and weak—and shy, petite Tessa knows what a major mistake it would be to get involved with someone so . . . dangerous.
They say that former teen rebel Lucky Romo has a dark, secret past—that he's trouble with a capital "T." Still, Tessa feels all tingly when she sees how well he fills out a pair of tight jeans. And when Lucky invites her into his world, she knows the intense heat sparking between them could lead her somewhere wild and wonderful . . . and, yes, dangerous!

The residents of the small town of Destiny love to leave, but it seems that they eventually return to their roots. It's a town where the good girls enjoy stepping outside the box in order to break all of society's rules by hooking up with the most unlikely men. This third book is no exception!
Tessa left Destiny with the intention of making it big in the city as an interior designer. Lucky left the small town in search of acceptance. Determined to make the best of the unexpected changes in their lives, they both reluctantly return to Destiny. Ultimately they find what they have always longed for in their lives.
Lucky is a walking cliché. You can't judge a book by its cover. Although he looks rough and tough and mean, he really is a good person and has changed from that outlaw biker that his image projects. If only he could get everyone he cares about to see that he has changed...or maybe he just needs to believe it himself. You can't change a tiger's stripes. When he is faced with a tough situation, he has to choose which side of the law he wants to be on. No matter which way he chooses to go, he could lose the one person he loves most, Tessa. Seeing his internal struggle with the person he wants to be and the person he once was is heart wrenching.
In a nutshell, the romance is smokin' hot and the story is fantastic. You cannot help but love the characters in this quaint little town called Destiny and I am anxiously awaiting the next installment!
This is another slam dunk for Toni Blake! She never disappoints.
