Eva was abandoned on her wedding day by who she thought was her true love. She was devastated and swore off men. She then began to focus on her marketing business. When she was offered a contract that would move her company to Korea, she had to decide whether she should pursue this opportunity and restart her life in a new country. Will Eva accept the contract? Will she find love again? Find out in the exciting novel You Are My Destiny by Talitha Beck.
My favorite part of this book was the multiple layers present in the plot. The book starts with themes of grief and heartbreak as Eva deals with the aftermath of being dumped before her wedding. It then transitions to a focus on Eva becoming a successful businesswoman and the possibility of her moving to Korea. This major transition in Eva's life gives her reason to open her heart to the possibility of loving someone again. Seeing her character develop as her life changed made the story compelling.
My main dislike of the book comes from the writing style. The book was rather dialogue-heavy, and I felt as though the descriptions were lacking. It was also sometimes a little confusing and hard to figure out which character was talking due to the lack of dialogue tags. In addition, the book would sometimes jump perspectives between the chapters without warning. It would often backtrack in time to show a previous scene from another perspective, and I found this a little disorienting because there was no warning or label to indicate such a change was occurring.
I rate this book 3 out of 5 stars. I enjoyed the overall plot of the book, and the characters were interesting and dynamic. However, the technical elements need some work. I am taking off one star because I spotted more than ten errors; the book could do with an additional round of proofreading. I am taking off one additional star for the lack of clarity regarding the dialogue and perspective changes. This book is best suited for mature readers who enjoy romance novels.
