Event organized byInto the Night Reviews


Jamie Grey grew up tossed around between foster homes. At an early age he shut the world out, deciding he wouldn’t care. Whatever life had to throw at him, he would look the other way. Now his senior year is about to start and he’s been forced into yet another new home. This will be the last time, he assures himself. When an unexpected curveball comes his way in the form of a certain stubborn seventeen year old girl, Jamie soon finds out that life doesn’t always work out the way you plan it.

Beckett Chase has been entitled her entire life. Living in the plush landscape of Palm Beach, Florida, she’s never wanted for anything. She’s always taken what and who she wants with no remorse. When she sets her sights on Jamie Grey and she’s met with rejection, her descent from the top begins.

With a twist of events causing Jamie and Beckett’s worlds to collide, will they be able to put aside their differences or will fate intervene offering an entirely different option?

My question to Heart was:
Do you believe fate plays a roll in life or do we all make our own destiny?


That is a great question! Fate as defined by Merriam-Webster is: a power or predetermined course of events that is believed to control what happens in the future. Additionally the things that will happen to a person or thing and the future that someone or something will have. It further defines destiny as the will or determining cause by which things in general are believed to be as they are or events to happen as they do.

I believe we all have a destiny, something we are all able to fulfill in our future. But is this something predetermined for each one of us or do we control what happens? That’s a hard one. Many of the books we read would have it be an act of fate, events that are already written in the future and meant to happen regardless of anything else.

Um no, I think each one of us has a role to play in our futures. We make our own destiny with our actions. Life is full of choices. The smallest such as “What should I order to drink in a restaurant?” to the largest, “Should I move across the country for another person?” Each of those decisions can impact our future. Think about it, the direction your own life has taken. Would you be where you are or who you are with, if you hadn’t made the decisions you’ve made? No, life would have taken you in a different direction. I KNOW this about my own life. And because of this which obviously I’ve thought about…I don’t regret a single decision I’ve made.Some of my own choices have been doozies but hey that is what life is all about. If we don’t make bad decisions, we don’t learn from our mistakes.

Okay, so now the question is how does fate fit in? I don’t exactly know. Was it a concept made up by an over imaginative romantic or does it have some semblance in our universe? I’d like to believe I was fated to marry my husband, we were written in the stars just like Jamie and Beckett but no, the corners I’ve turned and the streets I’ve crossed led me to him.

Of our fate though we can be sure of two things, we are born and we will die at some point. What comes in between is a choice in our destiny.


Thank you so much for stopping by, Heather.  I truly enjoyed your take on fate and destiny! ~Jillian
