Destined For Him by B.D. Harrison
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
::..Reviewed for Red's Midnight Readers..::
I was kindly provided with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
These are the reviews I hate to write but unfortunately this book just didn't do it for me personally.
The blurb for this book hooked me and I couldn't wait to read the book after I had read it but the story unfortunately didn't have the same pull.
First of all though I love the fact that this book is set within bonnie Scotland, there is nothing more romantic than Scottish scenery but feel this could have been enhanced had the dashing Laird been a Scotsman and not been English. Not a biggie, I just have a penchant for hunky Scotsmen.
The story started out quite promising and found myself quickly drawn into it but it had lost it's momentum after a few chapters and I couldn't get back into it.
The insta -love theme that was happening was a little too over bearing for me and Charlie's constant use of such terms of endearment as "darling" and "sweetheart" meant I often forgot that I was reading about a young, rich alpha male and not some stuffy older gentleman and Isabella's immaturity often got a little too much.
That being said the drama and angst had me reading on until the end, so I have given it 2 stars.
Are you looking for a new alpha male book boyfriend to dominate your thoughts? Then hold on to your panties, you are about to be swept into Charlie Grant's vortex!!!
When Isabella Travis walks in on her cheating boyfriend, it sums up the rubbish luck the young chef has been having lately. When she leaves to attend her father’s funeral in the highlands of Scotland, it should have provided the perfect opportunity for some much needed time to reassess her life.
However, she wasn’t prepared to meet the force of nature that was Dr Charles Grant, Laird of the Ballindorach estate who sweeps into her life unexpectedly and won't take no for an answer. Her failsafe technique of burying her head in the sand and trying to ignore sticky situations won’t work this time; her life is changed forever. Not used to having such a dominant alpha waltzing in and making decisions about her and for her, Isabella finds herself in a constant battle of wills.
Skeletons from Charlie's past and present threaten to derail the new relationship, but how much will Isabella take? Can they get past the fact that they come from two very different worlds and make their relationship work outside the bedroom?
This book is approximately 82,000 words and is the first of a series of two books.
