Playing With Destiny By Diane Escalera

Destiny Quinn lives for her job. She loves being an IT Recruiter, traveling nationwide. But all work and no play has left her feeling restless. It's been a year since she's gone out on a date — or slept with a man. Suddenly, Destiny can't think about anything else. She's not looking for a relationship, just a good time and a sexy diversion. One steamy night of mind-blowing pleasure, then maybe she can get back to business. 

Christian LaCosta wants to prove to his family — and himself — that he is relationship material. Lately, it seems like everyone around him is in love. Maybe it's time to give up the fast life and fast women, quit being the odd man out. Christian decides to take the plunge and join an online dating service. When he's unwittingly hooked up with a luscious neighbor named Destiny, the coincidence is too much. Christian doesn't believe in fate, but one look at Destiny, and he's seeing a whole new future. Now he must convince this career-driven beauty that work isn't everything. Take a chance on them, and she can have it all.

Over all this was a rather fun little read. Only 11 chapters so it was short...NICE beach read!!!!!
I was pleasantly surprised with the reversed roles. Usually it's always the guy looking for the quick roll in the hay, no stings attached...this time it was the girl.
Destiny, was an interesting little number. It wasn't that she needed to go the route she did to meet Christian, it was more that she lost her edge thanks to Jax, her ex. Thus throwing her life into what it was.
Christian, our hottie, could have it all when he wanted it, but he was jealous of what his brothers had.....I think that's so sweet.....that moment when boys GROW UP!!!
As the story goes, it's a progress of them falling for each other...sweet and simple. Even Destiny's Nana give's her stamp of approval. 
Of course nothing ever goes perfect and someone always has to screw something up....only this time it was the girl!!!! (What the H E double hockey sticks was she thinking?!?!?!?!?!?!?!)

Guess you have to read it to see if they get a happy ending or not...
Yep, I'm evil...

About the Author

 Born and raised in the Bronx, New York, I relocated to South Florida, a sultry paradise I instantly fell in love with. Unlike most authors, I didn’t know I was destined to write. In fact, I worked in banking for many years, but deep down knew that it wasn’t my dream job. At the young age of thirty-five, my sister died of an illness. I realized the same thing could happen to me. There are no guarantees. I couldn’t waste another moment doing something I didn’t love. Writing was one of my greatest joys when I was growing up. While still working at the bank, I decided to enroll in an intensive course where I learned everything I could about the craft. It didn’t take long before I left the bank to pursue a writing career.

     Now living in coastal North Carolina, I’m married, have two children and a super cute Dachshund I can't get enough of. I write contemporary romance and I'm published with Kensington Publishing and Lyrical Press. I feel truly blessed to be able to share my stories. I only wish I could have shared them with my sister.
