Meant to Be by Jennifer Probst is now live!
It's been two years since Chiara Kennedy lost her dearest friend, Rory. Chiara misses everything about her. Rory's widowed husband is another story. Sebastian Ryder is a man Chiara had secretly wanted, let slip away, and hoped to never see again. Then fate throws them together for an unexpected one-night stand and a morning after of new challenges.
Sebastian had a soulmate in Rory. Shut down after his tragic loss he kept a cool distance from everyone, including Chiara with whom he once shared a deep if fleeting affection. That was over and done with a long time ago. But when they meet again, old emotions resurface along with a heart-wounding past that haunts them both.
As Chiara and Sebastian grow closer, finally getting to know each other, Chiara struggles between feelings of guilt and those of a cherished second chance with Sebastian. . Will Fate allow them to overcome the past, or are they destined to always wonder if they are truly meant to be?
My Thoughts: Meant to Be is a story of friendships and the one who got away. I really enjoyed Sebastian and Chiara’s relationship. I liked how they both had feelings for each other but were very aware of what they could offer and what they wanted from each other. They respected each other, they respected their relationship as friends and as more, and they respected themselves. My big struggle was how much Rory was brought up. I know she was Sebastian’s wife and Chiara’s friend until she passed away, but it was like she was a third person in their relationship. I did not want them to ignore her part in their lives, but they did not have to make every decision with her in mind.
I really like the friendships. They were more than friends, they were family by choice. I loved how supportive and protective they were of each other. When Chiara told them about her and Sebastian there was no judgment. They helped Chiara make choices but never pressured her to decide one way or the other. Everyone needs friends like that.
Meant to Be is a fun story, it is easy to read, the characters are real, and the storyline entertaining.
