Destiny - Carly Phillips

Book Blurb:
Nash can't help but admire Kelly Moss's confidence and beauty. But he's forced to keep his distance because getting involved with Kelly could destroy his relationship with his newly discovered teenage half-sister, Tess. And Kelly has other reasons for keeping her distance-like the secret she knows Nash will never forgive...

In My Own Words:
As Kelly helps Nash try to build a bridge with their sister, she can't help but start to feel things for him.  Things that she shouldn't feel considering the state her life is in.  Spending time with Nash is a bad idea, but she just can't seem to help herself.  Her big worry now, is if Nash finds out about her past, will he ever look at her the same?  When her mother shows up and starts making noises about getting Tess, the whole family come together to do what is best for Tess.  When they include Kelly in those decisions, he heart is broken wide open and things go down hill from there.  Secrets are exposed and people are hurt, healing is what needs to happen next.  But, will they allow that to happen?

I really loved watching Nash and Kelly find their way to each other.  So much was packed in one little book.  Nash has to confront his past AND his hatred for his oldest brother.  Kelly needs to focus on building a new life, and neither needs the complication of a relationship.  BUT, a heart doesn't care what your plans are, they have minds of their own.  I think my favorite parts were the interactions with Tess.  That is one great teen.  I know she is young, but I really hope she gets a book too.
