    This series keeps getting better and better!

    Destiny’s Choice is the second book in Victoria Saccenti’s Destiny series and I couldn’t be happier that we got to have Marite’s story. We know from reading the first book that things were not always easy in her life but I loved how she refused to let it bring her down. She is now set on a course to make the one man she has always carried feelings for make her realize that she is no longer a child. Brian has been through the Vietnam war and has the scars inside and outside to prove it. Through it all he has been very careful of the feelings that he carries for his best friends sister in law but now that she is all grown up, it is getting harder. Will she be able to make him realize what is right in front of him before it is to late? This book definitely made you have crazy feeling while reading it, I wanted so bad for them to work out and there were parts where I wasn’t sure it was going to go my way. I also really loved that we got an update on characters from the previous book. I am really glad that I found this author and I plan to keep reading her books as long as she is putting them out!

    Destined to be a Captivating Read!

    Exquisite story of a young woman's destined journey in love. The writing in this novel is superb. Images and feelings are beautifully expressed with words flowing like poetry. Characters are well developed. As a reader, I couldn't help but form an attachment to favorites and empathy for those characters who are hurting. Marite was an innocent young teen when she the stirrings of her heart began to intensify. Her brother-in-law's best friend Brian, a cowboy at heart and Vietnam vet is 7 years her senior. But her undeniable pull to Brian, although he is miles away, has Marite beginning a deep feeling of need. But she also experiences confusing feelings towards her troubled first cousins, Michael. To help her navigate her young feelings and develop herself, Marite's grandmother, (Abuela), takes her to Spain to complete her high school education. Marie's Abuela also provides her with guidance and assists her to understand of her own heart. Brian experiences in Vietnam left him injured both physically and mentally. Occasionally, the reminder of his injured leg manifests in a limp as well as flashes of PTSD. In a desperate attempt to forget about Marite, Brian tries to have a relationship with another woman, Amanda. Because of his heart's need, Brian is unable to 100% give himself to her and the relationship has a tragic end that fills him with guilt. A few years older than his cousin, Michael watched Marite grow from a little girl to a young woman. At her arrival at the family ranch in Florida, Michael became Marite's self-appointed protector. He is angered, frustrated and in agony of his mind and heart's choice of Marite as his own. He dives into alcohol and drugs to help him forget. Once completing her studies and fortified with her Abuela's guidance, Marite returns to the United States to confront all of her feelings for Brian and Michael. With the three brought together to attend a family baptism, destiny will not be denied it's will. Brian and Michael appreciate Marite's physical maturity, but neither credit her for the maturity of her heart. Her Abuela's words of wisdom help Marite understand her feelings for Michael. She wants to help him but her heart belongs to Brian. She feels bliss that she and Brian have professed their love by in words and body. The story ends when Michael's abject self-hate has him acting out his need of Marite in front of the whole family. Without allowing her to explain what occurred, Brian's guilt over his own past and his self-labeling as too damaged for Marite, he takes off back to his home in Texas. Marite takes her broken heart back to Spain into the care of her Abuela. Book 3 of this trilogy is due out in August. I would highly recommend reading the first book of this series, Destiny's Plan to gain a good understanding of all the characters and story plots. I would also highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys terrific writing, detailed character development and fabulous story plots.
