Playing With Destiny by Diane Escalera

Destiny Quinn lives for her job. She loves being an IT Recruiter, traveling nationwide. But all work and no play has left her feeling restless. It's been a year since she's gone out on a date — or slept with a man. Suddenly, Destiny can't think about anything else. She's not looking for a relationship, just a good time and a sexy diversion. One steamy night of mind-blowing pleasure, then maybe she can get back to business.
Christian LaCosta wants to prove to his family — and himself — that he is relationship material. Lately, it seems like everyone around him is in love. Maybe it's time to give up the fast life and fast women, quit being the odd man out. Christian decides to take the plunge and join an online dating service. When he's unwittingly hooked up with a luscious neighbor named Destiny, the coincidence is too much. Christian doesn't believe in fate, but one look at Destiny, and he's seeing a whole new future. Now he must convince this career-driven beauty that work isn't everything. Take a chance on them, and she can have it all.

Review: Destiny wasn’t looking for love; she was just looking for a good time. No strings attached. Then came Christian LaCosta, a gorgeous hunk of male. [Excerpt] “Christian LaCosta,” he said, with a husky timbre in his voice. He reached for her hand. “Destiny Quinn,” she replied, trying not to stammer. She gave him a firm handshake, did her best to maintain composure, because up-close he looked even more incredible. “Destiny, huh?” Still grasping her hand, he stared into her eyes. “I think so,” he said, nodding approvingly. What a line. Yet she secretly loved it. “Can I have my hand back?” Wowza! He had me from the very first hand shake. Also, he knows martial arts, he can build a house, and he cooks? Can you say “PERFECTION”!? The best part about Christian was his restrained and protective nature. The sexual energy between the two exploded from page one. Who doesn’t think that Latin guys are so freaking hot? The bulk of the story basically concentrated on the physical heat between the two lovers with a brief history of the characters. It was lust at first sight for these two, and the details can be quite racy. Working women will be able to relate to Destiny’s marriage to her job. She is the fiercely independent woman that’s needed in today’s tough world. She’s happy being the leader of her life and refuses to settle—that’s absolutely admirable! Who can blame Destiny for wanting to keep things simple without the drama? After all, she had enough of it with her ex, who, of course, decided to show up out of the blue. The ex is always the complication. What a psycho! A well-written, fast-paced, spicy romance!

Destiny was tired of her toys and wanted to meet a real man. Destiny decided to sign up for a singles get together. If she didn't meet a man there at least she would learn how to cook and the day wouldn't be a total loss. While getting ready to try her new recipe out, in walks the tall, dark and handsome Christian. He was perfect eye candy and Destiny could see herself getting back into the swing of things with this stud. During the singles meet and greet the pair had a lot of fun and they didn't want the fun to end. Destiny was looking for a one night stand, but Christian wanted to settle down. Will they come together for more than just a night? I have read the entire trilogy written by the author and have enjoyed the books. This book can be read as a stand alone, but I always recommend to read books in order when possible. I enjoyed reading about the characters. While this has steamy parts to the book, the story unfolds as a romance and we see a relationship blossom. We meet the families and root for the pair to become a couple. I feel this book is well worth reading. A quick read with a story that feels complete. Rating 4.5 Heat Rating Hot Reviewed By Rae Courtesy Of My Book Addiction And More
