I do not even know where to start in my review of Destiny Shines by Leslie Pike. I have absolutely loved the Santini series. The series are novellas that should be read in order as it builds on the family. It was not just a series about romance, but about love, family, hope, loss, and redemption. Each story touched my heart and I could not wait to get the next one!

We have met Nikos in the previous two books and I have always loved his personality and outrageous behavior. But we now get to see who Nikos really is. And though he has his own demons, he is strong, determined, sexy and charming. We saw his confidence shine and his insecurities sneak through.

Jenny Doyle belongs in St. Helena. This is where her life is and where she sees her future. As a physical therapist, she is always there to help her patients and she takes her responsibilities seriously and professionally. But when she meets the Santini family, will she lose her heart to them? Especially the charming and sexy Nikos? I loved Jenny. She was sweet, caring and wore her heart on her sleeve.

When Nikos and Jenny lives collide, the sparks fly. Their attraction is instant, but Nikos is only in town temporarily. Even so, they are not able to stay away from each other. Do they risk it all or walk away from what could be true love?

Destiny Shines gives us a sweet romance with a bit of angst and a look to the characters and family we have all come to love. I loved this quick read hard and that epilogue blew me away. It brought me to tears and left me content. Destiny Shines and the entire Santini series was amazing and touching and I highly recommend reading them!
