Handcuffed by Destiny (Crawley Creek Ranch, #6) by Lori King

A broken woman… After being kidnapped, tortured and surviving the brutality at the hands of human traffickers, Destiny Warren still finds everyday a struggle.  Everyday Destiny works to overcome her injuries, both visible and hidden.  Despite her overpowering fear, she finds herself drawn to her rescuer, Brandon Bowers.

A man of honor… Bran Bowers was raised by his grandmother with a sense of responsibility and a serious demeanor. He’s spent his life working for everything he has, but Mother Nature and fate seem to be taking turns dealing his cards lately. Between a flash flood that wiped out his home, and a beautiful woman who’s scared to accept his protection, Bran has to roll up his sleeves and take a stand.

A mountain to climb… They say that love conquers all, but can it also overcome the horrors of PTSD? Destiny isn’t sure she can let Bran in, but she can’t seem to let him go. Will Bran walk away knowing he can never know her completely, or is he handcuffed to his own destiny?

Crawley Creek book #6 is finally Destiny’s HEA. I couldn’t wait to read this book because I really wanted Destiny to get her HEA after all the trauma she dealt with at the hands of the sex traffickers. Bran was the one to find her so it makes sense that they had a strong connection. He waited patiently for her to heal enough to accept his love and wooed her slowly so he didn’t scare her away. Bran’s character was a perfect gentleman and just what Destiny needed.

Destiny’s story was always going to be gut wrenching and packed with the type of emotional impact that would tear your soul to shreds. But through all the pain, devastation and suffering this young woman has endured, Ms King showed that her inner strength and desire to live and be loved would enable her to overcome the worst of her fears with the help and understanding of a very special man. Bran is every woman’s dream; compassionate, patient and determined to win the heart of this fragile, yet resilient soul. While his nurturing nature and calm, easy presence allowed Destiny to move at her own pace, Bran was also unwavering in his ultimate goal……to call Destiny his own. Just when you think Crawley Creek can’t embed it self further under your skin, along comes Bran and Destiny.

After reading the blurb on this one I was intrigued. I'm glad I read this one. Destiny man what she was a victim of just breaks my heart. Then to have the strength to get help to move forward is a beautiful thing to witness. Though she may have healed on the outside she still has to heal in the inside. Bran had been by her side through it all. He has a sense of honor that's what makes him a great sheriff. They all think it's behind them, but trouble starts popping up. Now Destiny may be in danger again. Can they stop them before it's too late. Through the new danger lurking watching Destiny and Bran find their footing was the best part of this book. I will say there is a little bit of a cliffhanger, but it makes me so want the next book to see what happens.

Loved it! Lori King does it again! Bran and Destiny's story takes us back to Crawley Creek with more suspense and cowboy loving. I love how understanding Bran is and how he helps Destiny overcome all of the traumatic things she has endured. Can't wait for more from Crawley Creek!

I have to admit to having this book for a few days before I sat down to read it. I knew it was going to make me cry so I had to get myself ready for it. It was so worth reading. The heart-wrenching subject matter and the love and acceptance just made me cry. Ms. King did an excellent job with this story. She presented the subject matter in a way that was interesting and caring but without being heavy or degrading . Destiny hasn't been able to move past her physical and emotional trauma. She doesn't think she'll ever be able to heal. Bran knows all about Destiny's past since he's the one who saved her. He's been trying to give her time to work through everything that happened to her since he loves her and wants her to share her life with him. He's not sure if he should push just a little or stand back and let her decide what she wants. Can Destiny move past her fears and trauma? Will Bran be able to convince her he's the one for her? Read for yourself....it's so worth it. But have some tissues handy. I love the Crawley Creek series. Each book features a couple trying to find their own HEA, while there is an over-arcing storyline which carries over to the next book. Each book also features characters from the other stories (both past and future) which I find really interesting. Gifted copy.

I love me some law enforcement stories. This one was another great one. Destiny dealing with the attack and kidnapping is a hard road. Bran willing to do what he can to help her with the PTSD all the while loving her. It is a tear jerker and some drama tossed in but it a great love story.

Fantastic read! This story is full of suspense, plus deals with the after affects of a horrific attack beautifully. Lori King draws you into the story and her unique writing style keeps you enthralled throughout. Love this series and look forward to more from Crawley Creek. Gifted a copy for an honest review.

A captivating read that proves love can conquer all things and that family is not always what you are born into. The reader is once again at the Crawley Creek Ranch and catching up on all our past favourite couples. Sheriff Bran has felt an attraction to Destiny and can't get her out of his mind ever since finding her at deaths door. He quietly watches over her and doesn't want to risk traumatizing her anymore than what she has been through. Destiny has been through hell at the hands of sex traffickers and lived, though just barely. She suffers from PSTD and just getting through a day now is a challenge. She does feel safe with Sheriff Bran. Bran and Destiny's relationship is pushed in the right direction by many of the Crawley Creek family. These little and not so little nudges help this couple overcome many traumas from both their past lives. Love and communication will not allow the sex traffickers to win! This book is best read in series to get the back story on everyone. I would also recommend to have tissues nearby as it is emotional and will tug at your heart. The ending was a stock which will call upon the reader to request the next book immediately from Ms.King.
