Waking every morning and pasting a smile on her face, Selene Chandler only looks like she has it all: parents who love each other, popularity… but what she actually has, is everyone fooled.
Afraid to let anyone see the real, raw her, Selene’s life is far from perfect, and the well-constructed wall she’s built is so high, no one has ever seen past it except her mother; the one and only person she’s ever felt love from.
A TWIST OF FATE THAT IGNITES A FIRE…
The handsome “golden” boy of Montgomery, Texas, Drake Thomas appears to have the perfect life. The Mayor’s son, Drake is privileged, entitled, and has never faced the consequences of his actions. He’s never had to until one fateful night, his carefully constructed world begins to unravel, and it takes all the strength he didn’t know he had to hold it together.
A CONNECTION THAT CAN’T BE DENIED…
When fate deals Selene a devastating hand, she is forced into a new life, in a new town. Both alluring and beautiful, two strangers lives cross paths in a tangle of feelings impossible for them to ignore.
Desire turns to a longing neither have ever allowed themselves to feel; but will it be enough to tear down their walls and overcome the secrets of their past?
They’re both pretending; but in this life, you can only pretend for so long.

Every now and then I come across a read that I struggle to review , it’s not that I didn’t enjoy it , in fact it had such an impact on me that I feel no words will do it justice , no words can capture the emotions that this specific book made me feel …..this is one of those reads ….
I physically hurt reading this and it felt like someone had my heart in their fist and they were squeezing it …..ringing it dry ….
One of my favourite movies is “The Crow” and there’s a melody that’s always stuck with me and it played in my mind while reading “When Destinies Collide” ….” it won’t rain all the time , the sky won’t fall forever….”
As much as I fell apart with Drake and Selene so I also healed , laughed and found peace 💕
