Destiny’s Chance by Cara Bristol

Destiny's ChanceDestiny’s Chance by Cara Bristol
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

Destiny Grable wakes in the hospital to find that she has been in an accident and that her friend that had been with her didn’t make it. Destiny can’t figure out though why Chase is there with her in the hospital since he was her friends ex-boyfriend and roommate and just where is her family if she’s all banged up and hurt?

As soon as Destiny gets to a mirror she is in for a major shock. The face looking back at her is not her own but that of her friend. To avoid ending up being locked in the psyche ward of the hospital Destiny takes on the identity of her friend and leaves the hospital with Chase. Finding herself living with Chase as she figures out what to do Destiny still harbors a secret crush on Chase that she never followed up on since he had gone out with her friend.

Destiny’s Chance is one of those reads that I was a bit back and forth on while I was reading it. The synopsis for this one was a bit vague and I found some things I ended up not particularly caring for while I also found some that I really liked.

First, I did enjoy the writing in this one and the overall plot. The idea of waking up and finding yourself in another body isn’t a totally new one but it was still interesting to read about though. Also, Destiny’s sister has some psychic abilities which was also a nice add to the story.

However, while the idea that Destiny wakes up and finds herself living with Chase that she’s had a crush on and them starting this steamy relationship sounds somewhat appealing it was kind of also a turn off to think that this is her friend’s guy that she’s beginning a relationship with while being in her friend’s body. Girl Code seemed to apply before the accident but flew out the window afterwards. I think maybe I would have just preferred a set up where it wasn’t her good friend’s ex.

Overall, I decided to give this one 3.5 stars. Good writing just not a personal preference to the prior relationship dynamic.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

  1. I suspect I’d totally agree with you regarding the prior relationship dynamic somewhat detracting from my enjoyment of the story – great review!

    • Yeah, the writing was good and the idea was good I just couldn’t help thinking he’s sort of getting his cake and eating it too. Picked the one friend to date probably due to physical attraction then it didn’t work but he’d become friends with the other so now he gets the physical of the first and the mental of the second… just ew. LOL
