Publisher's Summary

In national best-selling author Beverly Jenkins' Destiny series, the Yates men play hard and live hard. And when they find that special woman, they fall hard.

Noah Yates fully believes in the joys of a happy family and a good wife. But that's not the life for him. No, he would much rather sail the wild seas in search of adventure, not tied down. But then the unthinkable happens - he finds himself literally tied down. To a bed. By a woman.

And Pilar isn't just an ordinary woman. She's descended from pirates. And after giving him one of the worst nights of his life, she steals his ship! Now Noah is on the hunt, and he'll stop at nothing to find this extraordinary woman - and make her his.

Destinys full circle

As always Jenkins delivers a well written love story. while i did enjoy the book it did not captivate me nearly as much as the first two books.

Great story, generic lead female,

Let me start off by saying I am a fan of several of Beverly Jenkins books. I LOVE forbidden as well as destiny surrender. With that being said. The lead female in the story goes from extraordinary to another generic strong-willed bold personality female. What happened to the revolution? what happened to her wanting to make a difference be a change? what happened to Cuba? what I am appalled, angry, and disgusted with the family over is the ending of the book, and the treatment of Noah Yates as a victim of rape. I do not think the writer understand severity of broken trust between spouses when the wife shared such an intimate violation of her husband with his family. I do not feel that the husband should have been the only one apologizing when does treatment and misunderstanding. He was not a alpha male nor that he appear to represent the domineering personality of an alpha male. She had more compassion for the perpetrator that placed her husband in this scenario vs her husband. that killed and murdered my book reading experience. I can go on and on about this however that may be a personal blog post. Otherwise a great book.

Enjoyable!

Another great story to bring the lives of Yates boys to close. A must read if you have read Bokks 1and 2 of this series.

Podcast Notes

** spoiler alert ** *Spoilers* These are my podcast show notes for this book. Only really legible to me soooo enjoy! check out our podcast RomanceAtAGlance.com
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Favorite parts of the book:
Books called Softies in which there is no sexual assault. What so ever. Not even a hint of a guy rescuing a girl from an overly sexually pushy dude.
I enjoyed the fact that Pilar is afro-Latina from Cuba and that her family was a slightly shady bunch of people where everyone had a skill to help out the group.
I love that is Pilar stealing his boat and not the standard girl stowing away on a pirate ship dressed as a boy trope. LOL
I love that the love at first sight is the sword fight and subsequent proposal. It wasn’t far fetched to me.
The segregated train car.
I love when pilar threatens to kill the man who tried to assassinate Noah.
I wished Pilars badassery was used more. I wish the book had a little bit more action. Pilar was essentially a fugitive and yet no one ever came after her. And she had little opportunity for her cut throat talents.
I love that Pilar and Noah had very little conflict. It was a nice change of pace.
When they did have conflict though it felt kinda weird. When he had the nightmare and wanted to be left alone. Didn’t seem like a far fetched notion or idea.
Now when he left for two weeks, I wanted him to return and find Pilar gone or moved in with a sister inlaw or something. I like that in her inner monologue
I Like that the brother is having a hard time handling his kid lol.
I love that they were in love most of the book and it was more about her change in status and dynamic.

Didn’t like

The plot line with Lavinia. WTF it was that super catty girl who is evil and 1 dimensional thing again. I wish there was a bit more of a build up with that or a little more mystery.
This notion that if he went back to the island a while he would be fixed of his trauma.
WHAT HAPPENED TO HER HOPES AND DREAMS!!!! “a wife goes where her husband goes” (WHO THE HELL BODY SNATCHED PILAR)
She got pregnant and then what????? Why not a form of Birth control and keep fighting and have conflict with her husband a bit more. Maybe about when to settle down or how involved to be or maybe he helps her be a MF rebel.
This book Ended hella week for me. I mean just where was the fiery Pilar! Where was the passion that Noah fell in love with? Where is part 2!


He talks in the beginning about wanting a wife who would sail the seas with him… why didn’t she become his biz partner? Why didn’t they try to prevent pregnancy so they could do that for a while?

Heroine Rating: 3 - She started off as a 5 and then slowly gave away all her will to her husband. BLAH

Hero Rating?: 2 stars. Mc Dreamy
I like that he took care of Pilar. I don’t like that he separated from her on the train. But overall he was a kind husband and his family was cool.
But I didn’t like him leaving her for 2 weeks then disappearing from her to find closure until she went from not showing to showing her pregnancy. WTF.

Love conquered all

Noah and Pilar's story was funny, adventurous, loving and serious. The story showed that love can conquer the darkness when bought out into the light. Noah story was heartbreaking but Polar handle it correctly.

I didn't give it five stars because I thought comparing the sister-in-laws to Pilar was unfair and biased. All in all I enjoyed all three stories.

Trigger warning. Sensitive subject matter.

Great story. Loved every minute of it. For those who are easily triggered, there is a sensitive subject matter addressed in this story.
