Tour Stop: FIGHTING DESTINY by Amelia Hutchins ~ Review/Giveaway

Title: Fighting Destiny
Author: Amelia Hutchins
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Have you ever heard of the old Celtic legends of the Fae - beautiful, magical, and deadly creatures that have a love of messing with humans just for kicks and giggles?

Welcome to my world.

What started out as a strange assignment, lead to one of the most gruesome murder mysteries of our times. My friends and I are set and determined to find out who is killing off Fae and Witches alike.

Couple of problems in the way – I hate the Fae and the Prince of the Dark Fae is bound and determined that I work for him. He’s a rude, overbearing egotistical ass with a compulsive need to possess, dominate and control me. Oh – did I mention that he is absolutely sex-on-a-stick gorgeous and he makes me feel things that I never ever wanted to feel for a Fae...every time he touches me or looks at me with those dangerous golden eyes he seems to pull me further in under his spell, despite my better judgment.

My friends and I can’t trust anyone and nothing is as it seems on the surface – not even me.

He bowed his head giving me a dark, dangerous smile.  "Keep telling yourself that Syn, and you might eventually believe it."
"I don’t need you to believe it, or myself for that matter.  I have to protect, endure and live for my coven.  In that order.  I'll be ready to leave in five minutes.  Let me just go grab my big girl panties," I said, leaving him at the door.  
"I'll be strong for you Syn, if you need it.  You don’t always have to be the strong one, I'll be your glue if you want to crumble, I'll hold you together," he said lifting his eyes and meeting mine.  
"And what if you're what's making me crumble Ryder, what then?"
His lips lifted into his sexy smirk.  "Then I'll put you back together.  I will never tear you down, Syn.  I will always protect you from anything and everything that would.  I've yet to find anything in this world or any other who can take me on—keep that in mind," he said lifting his eyes to meet mine before he started to turn away.  
I was startled by his words and what he had said earlier when we were dancing. He didn’t like me, did he? "That's what I'm afraid of." 

Fighting Destiny is a paranormal romance that had a unique and interesting storyline. Synthia is our female MC. She is a witch, who is very powerful, but reckless. She works to keep humans safe from the mythical beings that now share residence with the human world. 

Synthia hates the Fae, a group of the above mentioned mythical creatures. She is forced to work with Ryder, the Dark Prince of the Fae, to protect his fiancée, and help find the person responsible for the mutilation and killing of Fae and Witches that has been taking place. She reluctantly agrees, and faces dangerous situations and overwhelming physical attraction between Ryder and herself.

I expected more sex, especially given the warning, but Ryder makes up for it with his bad boy hotness.
I am looking forward to the next installment, and I hope that the author uses a better editor for the next story. There were numerous grammatical errors throughout that detract from it. Several times, I had to re-read sentences to try to make sense of the misspellings and grammar errors. I give this book 3.5 Stars!
