Publisher's Summary

When destiny fails...

Singer-songwriter Lucy Moore thought her life was perfect. At just 21, she's already met her soul mate and together they've landed a recording contract. But when her father dies and the love of her life betrays her in more ways than one she returns home to pick up the pieces. On the shores of Mendocino, California, Lucy has some decisions to make. Should she start a solo career? Or should she leave it all behind for some semblance of normalcy in the quiet town she grew up in? And what about Seth, the tortured artist who always seems to be there when she needs him?

Seth Keenan has demons of his own. Eighteen months ago, he was involved in a horrific accident that he never talks about. His career as an accomplished oil-paint artist has been abandoned, replaced by the buzz of his tattoo gun. And women - well, he never sticks around for longer than a few hours of pleasure...until he meets Lucy. After one evening of listening to her seductive voice, he's pulled under. But what about the vow he made to never get close to anyone again?

In a world where everyone has one true soul mate, can these two find love in the arms of each other?

Alternate Reality

What did you like best about Defining Destiny: New Adult Romance? What did you like least?

I thought that there was a story there that was good, but could have been so much better.

Would you recommend Defining Destiny: New Adult Romance to your friends? Why or why not?

I wouldn't recommend this audio version for the main reason that production left out a very important explanation that is at the beginning of the written edition. The book takes place in an Alternate Reality where everyone has "one true soul mate." Because that is left out of the beginning of the audio story, it makes the "Soul Mate" comments throughout the story seem ridiculous. Knowing this fact changes the feel of the book completely.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narrators were not bad, but the male sounded much older than the 23 year old Seth.

Did Defining Destiny: New Adult Romance inspire you to do anything?

No.

Any additional comments?

Although not a paranormal book, it does have a "magical" and "alternate reality" element to it. It is important that is understood when reading the book, or it will only irritate you.I probably would have rated this book higher if the "Soul Mate" label actually meant something. In this book, someone is considered your "Soul Mate" even if they treat you like dirt, as well as lie and cheat on you. It's frustrating.

Worth a credit

I ultimately enjoyed this book but in the beginning I really didn't care for the dialog. I also didn't realize being soul mates (as not in the vampire; shape shifter, or anyother way) in the manner we commonly use it was a paranormal activity. I also didn't think the book was served by using the two narrators, both of them are wonderful but I think the book would have been better served with one voice. I have listened to Jeffrey Kafer many times and really love his narration. The story became better as it moved along.

Great Story and Characters

What made the experience of listening to Defining Destiny: New Adult Romance the most enjoyable?

I really enjoy books read by Andi Arndt, she portrays the characters she reads perfectly. I didn't love the male voice, but it was bearable.

Have you listened to any of Andi Arndt and Jeffrey Kafer ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Another awesome performance by Andi Arndt

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this book, but I was getting a little tired of all the references to "soul mates". I thought it had a great story line but was getting dragged down by all the references
