Release + Review - Destined - A.M Madden


From USA Today Bestselling Author, A.M. Madden, is a heartwarming, childhood sweethearts stand-alone spin-off novel from The Back-Up Series.

We were destined.
How could we not be?
Our dads were famous rock stars and best friends.
As a kid, I practically lived at his house.
We did everything together.

My first kiss at only nine.
I knew I’d marry him one day.
Took my virginity on prom night.

Wrote songs about me.
Was sweet and kind, loving and caring.
The sun rose and set on him.
I trusted him with my heart.
And he loved me.

With my dad’s help, my love became a talented bass player .
He was destined to find fame.
I wanted that for him.
And then it happened.

The opportunity to tour with one of the hottest rock stars around.
Thirteen weeks wasn’t long to be apart.
Not in the grand scheme of things.
Except I had no idea who I was without him.
He got his wish—and I lost myself.
Maybe we weren’t so destined after all.

 Johnaka's Review 
“The end, 4 stars”

Destined is the end of a Lair world (as far as I know) and it’s crazy to think about. We watched Shane and Alivia’s parents all fall in love. We witnessed their first kiss and then we get Destined. We watch their love really unfold. We watch them struggle as a young couple who want nothing more than to be together but also know they need to spread their wings a little before they can.

Destined will make your heart hurt at times. You will want to punch Shane and slap Alivia but then you will remember they are young. Don’t worry, they don’t do anything to jeporidize their HEA. And through it all you watch their parents guide them and honestly, I was here for it.

If you're looking for a New Adult Rockstar romance, look no further.
