Release Blitz ~ #REVIEW ~ Far From Destined by Carrie Ann Ryan

Title: Far From Destined
Series: Promise Me #3
Author: Carrie Ann Ryan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 27, 2020


New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Carrie Ann Ryan continues her sexy new contemporary stand-alone series with a broken heart and the shattered soul that can heal them both. 

Macon Brady remembers every moment he lay on the ground, a bullet in his chest, his life bleeding out with each pulse. Yet his nightmares aren’t the only thing keeping him up at night. 

Dakota Bristol left her ex with nothing but the clothes on her back and her child in her arms. She’s been hurt before and wants nothing to do with the shadows in Macon’s eyes. The problem? Her son loves him, and the more time she spends with the man, the more she’s afraid she’ll come to love him just as much. 

Danger always comes back to haunt those who run. It was a lesson Dakota learned before. Now, it might be the man she refuses to fall for who makes the greatest sacrifice of all.




Ryan delivers a fast-paced and exciting story. From the beginning, these two interested me. The push and pull, the attraction, the hesitancy, I loved it.

Both Dakota and Macon had scars. Neither are strangers to trauma and have struggled to find a new normal. As part of the same group, it’s impossible to not be around one another. A pact, a blind date, a connection, and the rest is history. When a threat enters the picture and Dakota and her son are in danger, the whole crew, especially Macon do whatever it takes to protect them.

I definitely struggled at the beginning of this story. I hadn’t realized this was part of a series and initially, I felt a bit lost. As the story went on, more was explained and things became clearer. I do wish I had read the others prior, it would have given me a better feel for the characters and the dynamics.

The fast pace of this story kept me engaged. I was eager to see how things would play out between Dakota and Macon and I loved the build of the relationship. When the threat was introduced everything went into overdrive. This aspect completely drew me in. I enjoyed the suspense it created.

I’m looking forward to the next book and going back to read the first two!
