Book Review - Destined For Power by Kathleen Brooks

ABOUT THE BOOK


Mallory Westin was born into power. But when her family’s quest for more power caused her a broken heart, she turned her back on the only life she ever knew. Now a successful owner of a security firm, she’s determined to forge her own path. But sometimes one’s past isn’t so easy to leave behind. Mallory has to take control of the power she was destined for after discovering her politician father is involved in an assassination plot. Things only get worse as the one man she's always loved becomes a target as well. 

Reid Simpson had loved Mallory since they were teenagers. Then one night changed everything as she suddenly broke his heart. For years, he escaped the pain as he built his resort and casino empire. He pushed her from his mind, if not his heart. As Reid encounters increasing danger, he finds that Mallory is the one by his side trying to protect him. 

Can Reid and Mallory work together to uncover the assassination plot while avoiding the pain of the past? Or will they discover that love has a way of conquering all?

REVIEW


I cannot say enough good things about this book.  I love the main characters.  I love how she brought in Ahmed from the Bluegrass books.  I love the story and the mystery.   Everything was done well in this book!  Mallory has been a major character throughout the Built for Power books, so it was nice to finally see her story told.  The history between Mallory and Reid made the present day situation work better than many stories that feel rushed.


If you are a fan of books about strong women, a great love story, or just love a great mystery, this book is for you!


OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
