The first thing I have to say about this book and all of Addison's books, is that the cover is absolutely stunning. That is the first thing that grabs me about any of her books. This book actually reminded me a bit of a Delores Fossen novel. I love a good cowboy story and toss in a family feud (no not the game show..or as bad as the Hatfields and McCoys) but a good rift between families and you get a nice romance with some good old fashioned drama to go with it. I really loved Rex and Jade. They had a lot to overcome to become a couple; stubbornness and family loyalty are the two biggies. I also love that Jade was a vet. This is the second book where the heroine had that profession. I love me a strong female character that helps animals. This is definitely a must read book. Again, I can't ever decide which of Addison's books are my favorite, because each one is a favorite!

Our Sweet Destiny is an adorable, sweet read. At times, this book could be frustrating due to the feud between the Johnsons and the Bradens. Both characters are strong, determined, and very loyal to their family. Jade is a smart and brilliant vet. I really enjoyed reading her moments with horses and her techniques with dealing with them. Rex is very standoffish, gruff, and caring. He's protective of those he cares about, even if that person is suppose to be a family enemy. I kept getting frustrated with how much these two fought their attraction. Each moment they ended up together, I cheered a little. Their forbidden moments are some of the best in the story. I received this story as an ARC. I volunteered to leave my review. All opinions are my own.

Ms. Cole has brought the perfect opposites attract love story to life. The push and pull that both Rex and Jade feel is felt through the pages while reading. Both Rex and Jade are loyal to their families but have to decide if that loyalty is worth their happiness. Rex is another in a long list of amazing book boyfriends by Ms. Cole. While this is the sweet version it brought the heat with it! I can't wait to see what's next.

Our Sweet Destiny is a sweet less steamy version of  Destined for Love a while. When I picked this up I didn't realise this but as I started the first chapter I recognised the characters and storyline. This story is all about Rex Braden, a cowboy and Jade Johnson, a vet, They have known each other for years and have had a fluttering of feelings ever since high school, but because Rex's father and Jade's father fell out 40 years earlier and have been feuding ever since, and family means everything to them both they cannot be friends let alone lovers. Nothing can stop their attraction thought and they just can't stop themselves. Will it affect their family for the better or for the worse? You will have to read it to find out. I loved this book as much as I loved the steamy version. It was nice and refreshing without the steamy scenes in it, I thought it would spoil it but of course, it didn't. I actually preferred the less raunchy version. Definitely a five out of five for me!

There's nothing like an old family feud to put a hiccup in what could be love! Rex and Jade have felt a connection for years. It's been hidden by the mask of the feud that both of them wear to satisfy their families; however, when Jade returns home, it doesn't take long for this pair to admit that their destiny is meant to be intertwined. The downside is deciding if they are ready to sacrifice their relationship with their family to be together. Addison weaves a timeless story between the pair -- one that goes beyond the sweetness and romance of a relationship. They both desperately want to repair the bridge between their families; but is it going to be the final straw before the bridge completely burns up? I felt an incredible about of love between this pair far beyond the good looks and romantic relations. So deep and true! I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

In this book we are immersed in the story of Rex and Jade. They have known each other for years, and have always felt attracted to one another. When Jade returns home after years of living elsewhere they both realize the attraction has grown and endured time. However because of their fathers and a feud between them, both Rex and Jade think it impossible to be together. You may know how much I enjoy books where fate and destiny is involved. These two characters are meant to be with each other. So I was definitely rooting for them from the start. There are some moments where I almost believed it wouldn't happen. However I loved just how much they meant to each other, enough for them to fight for their love. This is definitely one of those stories where love conquers all, and I am thrilled that it did! You have to read it to see all the mishaps and the amazing moments they share. If you're into romance novels that have a sweet amount of heat then this is a great book. Why not pick one up for yourself and one for your bestie, or sister (like in my case) for the holidays. I love getting books as gifts!

I love Addison Cole's books, but this one took me a bit to get into. I wasn't wild about Rex in the beginning, but he quickly changed my opinion of him. It's tough for Jade and Rex being from feuding families. They have to keep their attraction to one another under wraps easier said then done. Once I got into the story it did suck me right in. Towards the end of the book had tears forming in my eyes. I was really happy with the journey this book took.

So I’m loving these sweet romantic version book by Addison Cole. There’s not graphic sex scenes or crude language but still every bit of romance and addicting storyline. The newest book I read was Our sweet Destiny and I loved it! Rex is a Braden which I’ve met in a previous book about his older brother Treat’s story. He is a tough stone-faced cowboy who helps run his fathers horse ranch. He lost his mother at a young age and just never really had time for relationships. There’s only one woman who has ever caught his attention but is total forbidden fruit. She is his father’s ex-best friend, a total enemy for many years, daughter. Jade comes home to help her parents and to get away from a bad breakup. She’s a strong feisty woman who loves animals. She is a vet who connects with her patients and uses massages and looks at their emotions like a human. She gets her self into a predicament and needs help but gets it from the last person she could ever imagine getting it from, her crush since she was in high school. She can’t stand Rex’s attitude towards her no matter how nice she tries to be. Maybe her father is right Bradens are no good and she should stay away from them, but she can’t get him out of her head! This story has love, action, family turmoil and keeps you on your toes. Do you believe in destined love? After reading this book you might have a different opinion. Addison really made this story so realistic and her words just flow into your heart. I can’t wait to read the next book with Josh and Riley. So if you love romance books you have to check this one out! You will thank me later.

What a sweet romantic story of two people who love each other but because of a 40 year old feud between their dads can’t be together! Finally they have enough of sneaking around and it’s either they get the families together or they’ll leave town! Nobody tells a story like Addison Cole! I just loved this book!

Addison Cole's Sweet with Heat series always makes me smile. I love the tinge of hotness without worrying about where I am when I am reading. Her telling of Jade and Rex's story - yes, it is one story but from two sides of a Hatfield and McCoy like feud -is no exception. I've read about steamy Rex, the brooding cowboy, for several books now. While a deep, long ago infatuation with Jade is hinted at, nothing ever comes of it in previous books. Little did I know until Our Sweet Destiny that Jade had the same since high school feelings. I can't imagine being Jade in this book. Having spent a lot of time in college to become a vet and then to have a man ruin it for her. Coming home is definitely the right thing to do. The question is is checking out the neighbor the right thing to do. You need to pick up a copy of Addison Cole's Our Sweet Destiny and see how Jade and Rex's story works out. It is well worth the read time. I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

Rex Braden, has spent his whole life caring for the family ranch, more so since his father has suffered health issues. Rex lives a practically care-free life, until Jade Johnson shows back up into town. Jade Johnson, after a failed relationship and some stalking issues, has returned to her family home. She is deciding whether to reopen her practice or move elsewhere and start over, but learns that her family is thinking of downsizing their ranch. For over 20 years, the town has known about the Braden-Johnson, though no-one knows the details of how best friends ending up feuding. The draw between Jade and Rex, though forbidden, is undeniable and frustrating for the two. Drama, drama, drama! You will not be able to put this book down, wanting to know all about the feud and whether Rex and Jade can make any kind of relationship work. Disclosure: At my request, I have received an advance copy of this book for review purposes. I am not being financially compensated for this post, all opinions expressed are my own honest opinion.

I was very intrigued with Rex after meeting him in the first book. He was the strong, silent type who appeared to have a chip on his shoulder. But after reading his story, he is actually pretty amazing, maybe a little frustrating at times. I loved Jade. She was feisty and spoke her mind, and had an unbelievable connection with horses. Kinda made me remember loving horses as a little girl and wanting to be a vet for that reason. But she was vulnerable where Rex was concerned. When they finally connected and got on the same page, it was a beautiful moment. The epiphanies they both had and their commitment to each other was so romantic. I thoroughly enjoyed when the characters "spoke" with Rex's mom. Those scenes were touching, and a little cute. It is a wonderful idea to feel a loved one who is no longer with you still near you or speaking to you. I am definitely looking forward to more in this series. And loved the updates with Max and Treat. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.

Another sweet with heat winning story! This was a frustrating book for me because I wanted Rex and Jade together from the beginning but their loyalties to their families overpowered my wishes (temporarily though - hehe). You can feel the magnetic pull between Rex and Jade so much that you will want to keep turning the page to see if they will go behind their families to be together. A tantalizing weekend read!

Ahhh, Rex… What a sexy, sensitive, romantic, caring, hard-working, and close to perfection specimen of a man! If you had any doubt about Rex’s level of hotness in the previous novel, then that doubt will fly out the window once you start reading this! Jade is just as fantastic being the all-around ranch girl, has degrees as a veterinarian with specialties in acupuncture and therapeutic massage for horses, she’s beautiful, funny, and just a great person. So of course, I rooted for them from the very beginning. Besides the primary story about Rex and Jade’s forbidden love, Our Sweet Destiny also includes some great touches of fate, kismet, and love that is meant to be. As in the previous novel, Rex’s Dad still talks to his late wife’s horse, Hope, as if he’s talking to his wife. Rex and Jade have an incredibly moving moment while out window shopping that confirms that they are meant to be. Plus, we learn a lot of good details from the past regarding Rex and Jade’s parents, their friendships, and the aftermath of the big blow-up between them. I am always a sucker for meant-to-be romances, but this one really touched my heart due to the tie-in with Rex’s mother. Although the stubbornness of the fathers was frustrating at times, this novel made my heart swell with happiness and brought tears of joy more than once. This one just oozes romance, but also has plenty of appearances by other friends and family members and I was crazy excited for the next novel about Josh and Riley! As usual with Addison Cole, I can’t recommend this one enough! Even if you haven’t read A Love So Sweet, you can still enjoy this one and I fell certain that you will love it!

A chance encounter landed them together and Rex finds it impossible to step away from Jade. Sparks fly, and ignite a passion so deep nether Rex or Jade can ignore it any longer.  The only problem is , if word got back to their father's that they were together it could possibly tear the families apart.

Really enjoyed seeing the growth of both Rex and Jade, and then the build of their relationship. While there were tough times for both Rex and Jade, they weren't willing to turn their backs on each other and it shows how much they meant to one another.

4.5 stars Our Sweet Destiny by Addison Cole is a beautifully written, entertaining read and I loved it. Watching Rex and Jane's relationship unfold had me smiling, swooning and hoping they would be able to move forward and leave all the family drama behind them and give into their feelings. I'm loving the Sweet with Heat series, each book is a joy to read and I highly recommend them all.

Another sweet and spicy read by Addison Cole. This is the second book of the Braden series. Our Sweet Destiny focuses on the relationship that’s been brewing between Rex Braden and Jade Johnson since the time they were teenagers. One of the main themes in this book is about family loyalty and the lengths people will go to remain fiercely loyal to those that matter most to them. But what happens when those that matter most begin to include someone that you aren’t supposed to talk to, let alone think about having a future with? I loved reading Jade and Rex’s story and one of my favorite parts happens in nearby Allure. I won’t spoil the surprise but I will say that this book was touching. It reinforces a belief in fate and destiny when it comes to two people who were meant to be together against all odds. Another theme in the story is that two stubborn individuals butting heads can go on forever when one isn’t willing to admit their wrongs. Sometimes people do things that come across as wrong but they’ve done it for all of the right reasons. In those cases, if you were on the short end of the stick, sometimes you have to be the bigger person and forgive. At the end of the day, we all want to love and be loved, and we want to be surrounded by people that are honest and loyal and loving. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series!

Rex and Jade have had eyes for each other since they were teens but knew they could never be together because of a feud between their fathers. When Jade comes back to town and the two seem to constantly come in contact with each other, it doesn't take long for them to realize they want to be together regardless of their families. But how to they do that?? What a great story of love that's meant to be. Grab this one and settle in to see how things work out! I received an ARC and am voluntarily leaving my review.

How can a gruff cowboy know all the right things to say to soften a girl’s heart?” “I’m not softening a girl’s heart. I’m wooing the woman I want to share my life with.” Such heartfelt words from Rex, the cowboy that is so serious and loyal to a fault , to the existent of worrying about his family before his own happiness. But Jade, the soulful, feeling veterinarian is also concerned about her heart wanting what it wants at the expense of her family’s feelings, and feud between Rex Braden’s Dad and her own. A love that has gone untouched for 15 years , can it survive much longer, or will the Johnson /Braden feud bring it to an end? This is a soulful, can’t wait to turn the page read. Rex and Jade are determined to get the love that they want and need and hopefully the happy ever after including their families. I can’t wait to read Riley and Josh’s story. This is the kind of books , Hallmark movies are made of.

Rex Braden and Jade Johnson have a Romeo Juliet thing going on due to a long standing family feud between their fathers. What is more exciting than forbidden love? Nothing! Rex is the quiet brooding alpha male who has worked on the family horse farm his entire life and Jade has just come back to her hometown from Vet school. She is sassy and knows what she wants. She has always been attracted to Rex and he has always been attracted to her as well. They have chemistry and Jade really makes Rex’s softer side show. This is a heartfelt story filled with a little mystery, a little intrigue, and some romance thrown in. I Love how Addison Cole writes. She takes me into this family and makes me want to live in their world. Kudos Addison on another great story!

Another good installment in the Braden family. Rex and Jade are a modern day Romeo and Juliet without the tragic ending. Rex and Jade have both been attracted to each other since they were young. After a chance encounter, they can no longer fight their feelings. The story was an enjoyable read. Rex and Jade are great characters. It was fun to get back to Weston and catch up on the family. I received an advanced copy for an honest review.

Our Sweet Destiny tells the story of two individuals who have known each other for years, but because of family dynamics, have not been allowed to be together. When Jade finds herself in troubles, Rex is the only one around to help her. Although it does not seem like it to either of them at the time, this incident becomes that catalyst for the two of them to start sneaking around behind their families. Ultimately the two of them will have to decide if true love is worth defying family for, regardless of the consequences.

In Our Sweet Destiny Addison Cole brings us a modern day Hatfields vs McCoys feud. Ms. Cole's characters are very complex. Jade is the only woman Rex has ever loved, but he must deny that love in order to stay true to his family. Only their fathers know what caused this feud but everyone has to support their side. Jade's dad has some financial difficulties and may lose the ranch. There is an almost paranormal aspect to the story regarding Rex's dead mother and her horse. Check out this drama. You will not be disappointed.
