Tour Stop: Destiny Ever-Changing by Tasha Ivey

Some are destined for greatness . . . others for pure unadulterated misery.

After catching her boyfriend with another woman, Laura struggles with beginning again, knowing deep down that she is destined to be unhappily out of love for her entire life. Needing some time to recoup and formulate a game plan, she decides to visit her notoriously wise grandmother. But once there, a curveball in the form of a deliciously attractive stranger has her falling again.

Brooks is another story altogether. He is quite content with his life until his father forces him into a business decision that will ruin the rest of his life. As if his relationship with his father isn’t tumultuous enough, his new fiancĂ© is making every waking moment a living hell and loving every manipulative minute of it.

When Laura stumbles upon her mother’s old journal, she opens a door into a long forgotten past. A past that somehow leads both Laura and Brooks into unfamiliar territory and changes everything they ever knew about fate.

Destiny is ever-changing, after all.

What the heck happened in here?" Ashton inquires as soon as I storm into the house. She and Will are crouched over beside the kitchen cabinets, picking up slivers of glass and carefully dropping them into the wastebasket.
Ignoring her, I perch myself upon a bar stool and put my head down on the counter, pressing my face against the cool surface and closing my eyes. Please let today be a dream.
An unexpected clatter beside me forces my eyes open. Pieces of my cell phone lay all around my head, and Ashton is standing over me, arms crossed and one eyebrow raised.
Heaving an audible sigh, I push myself upright in the chair. "What?"
"Oh, come on," she rants. "You may not be a genius, but you're not stupid."
"Okay, fine, let's see if I can summarize my day for you," I sneer sarcastically. "First, I went to Laura's house, and her ex was there. Later on, Laura and I walked into the den and caught her ex and my so-called fiancĂ© going at it, naked, in the floor. So, I called off the wedding and made Jacqueline leave. Of course, dad called within minutes—he's on his way here, by the way. And, finally, we come to the part of my day when I told Laura that I love her."
"Oh, Brooks!" Ashton cheers. "You told her."
Will, who has been silently listening in on the conversation, pulls himself up off the floor to join Ashton. "That's big, man. Huge. You've been saving those words up all these years. How did it feel?"
"Let me put it this way, I would rather go through the pain and suffering of marrying Jacqueline than to experience that feeling again. She . . . she doesn't love me. And she's moving away." I stand and sulk toward my bedroom. "So, to sum it all up, it sucked."

Author Bio:
Tasha Ivey is a literature fanatic, whose love for the written word fostered her development into the writer she has become. A lover of an extremely erratic mixture of literature, she has been influenced by authors from Jane Austen and E.M. Forster to Charlaine Harris and Alyson Noel. But her biggest influence and literary hero? Nicholas Sparks. Aside from writing, since she doesn’t have anything other than a shriveled up prune on the left side of her brain, she prefers to spend her time being creative in other ways like painting, cake decorating, and various types of crafts. That is, if the constant voices streaming through her head allow her to stop making up stories for a while. Lucky for her, she has a huge supportive family, including her amazing husband and two kids, who doesn’t complain too much when she hangs out with her characters more than she does with them. She is currently working on her second novel, Every Breath, which is due to release this year, and she also plans to start a sequel to her first novel, Destiny Ever-changing, this summer.
