Review: Destiny by Carly Phillips

Nash Barron may be cynical about love, yet even he likes a good wedding. But the only good thing about his brother's wedding is Kelly Moss. Nash can't help but admire her confidence and beauty, but he's forced to keep his distance because getting involved with Kelly could destroy his relationship with his newly discovered half sister, Tess...

Kelly came to Serendipity to give Tess--her half sibling as well, thanks to an illicit affair--a second chance at life. She learned long ago not to rely on anyone but herself. Besides, she doesn't want to upset Tess's life by pushing for a fling with Nash. Except the more she gets to know him, the more vulnerable she becomes to the kindness beneath his gruff exterior, and the less she's able to stay away. But she has other reasons for keeping her distance. Like the secret from her past she knows Nash will never forgive...

In Serendipity, the first book of this series, Nash Barron comes as moody and difficult, unwilling to move beyond the past to accept the future he now has.  Destiny was about him growing as a character, hopefully taking to heart what's done is done and make the best of the path he has chosen.  But while Nash and his eventual relationship with Kelly Moss is the romance of Destiny, the book is also about the entire Barron family moving forward together.  In the second half of the book, we watch Nash and Kelly fall in love and we see Nash finally make peace with his past.  

Destiny is a very good addition to this series, focusing not only on the romance of Nash and Kelly but the Barrons as a whole and how they live together as a family.
