What People Think about "Tangled Destinies"

Clearly this book was not for me.

However, I just wasn't feeling it from the start. The book starts with how Marc rescues Gaby, however it wasn't executed well, and it fell flat to me.

4.5 stars This book was classic Diana Palmer and I loved that. I know I've said this before but books like this one was the reason that I fell in love with Diana Palmer and romance in general. It was filled with complicated and complex emotions that added so much drama and intensity in the relationship between Gaby and Marc. What I liked a lot though was there was a side story/plot featuring Marc's brother that added a another dimension that really fit well with the romantic plot without taking anything away from it. But again this part fit the story so well and pushed Gaby and Marc in their own relationship. But because of certain things put into motion that they were separated and both hurt by the fact that they were even though the other didn't know it at the time especially Gaby. I loved that there were a few flashbacks thrown in just to show their connection and the intensity of the relationship and it made me understand where they both were coming from on emotional level in the present time. There were multiple misunderstandings between the pair which created all this lovely tension and angst that I really enjoy in a romance. Another thing I really enjoyed about this book was that layer of suspense in danger thrown into the mix. I can't be on the edge of my seat and kept me really interested in the plot plus it added even more emotional intensity to the story that was already complicated enough with everything going around. Something that really surprise me about this book was the amount of passionate scenes that were here in the story. Not that Diana doesn't do passionate scenes and her romances because she does and she doesn't very well but for whatever reason The scenes in this book just seemed doubly so because there were so many scenes where they either almost made love or made love. In fact I marked up a lot of my book with my favorite moments. Despite the fact that a lot of things went really right in this book, there were some things I didn't like. For one I understood why Gabi wanted to hurt Marc from what she thought he did in the past to her, but I didn't like the fact that she basically wanted to get revenge on Marc by pretending to be involved with his brother. And speaking of cruel, he was beyond so with some of his harsh words that just struck me in the heart like it did Gaby. But despite those cruel words that wasn't what bothered me, it was the fact that I didn't think he groveled enough because he said some nasty things. It was classic Diana Palmer filled with angst, drama, complications, misunderstandings, deep emotions, passion , and intensity.

Something happened, to end it and Gabby hated Marc. This book is full of action and suspense and true love.... Once again, Marc saves Gabby from DEATH, he is very protective of her when it matters most.....
