4 out of 5 (very good)

HIS Destiny is the fifth book in the HIS series by Sheila Kell, and I will admit here to having missed book four which is Devon and Rylee's story. This MAY have affected how I've read Trent and Kelly's story, but I can't be sure.

After the blast that took Les' life, Trent went through his hospital stay as stoically as possible, with his only intention of escaping everything as soon as he could. He feels smothered by his new-found 'brothers' and won't even allow his best friend Kelly in to see him, in case she pities him. So, once he is well enough, he heads on out on his bike, determined to leave all that behind him. Only he doesn't go alone. One of the nurses who helped to look after him has come along. It's nothing romantic, far from it. She is actually dying and wants this to be her final ride. Trent does a good thing for her, and in return, she tries to help him move on and accept his family.

Kelly is settling for Brian. She loves him, and has done since High School, but she isn't IN love with him. She feels horrible for feeling that way, but Trent will never be hers, so she just has to deal. Everything is going okay until Brian is killed and more than one attempt is made on Kelly's life. Meghan speaks to Trent and he is soon back in Kelly's life, trying to catch up on all he has missed out on.

This is an enjoyable story, with plenty of interaction not only between the two main characters, but with all the members of HIS, plus additional characters too. With plenty of intrigue to keep your attention, HIS Destiny is a real page-turner. Kelly's attitude towards Trent's proposal annoyed me a bit as I don't like double-standards. However, she could see herself what she was doing, although it didn't alter her answer. I know it's there for a reason, but still, that bit got to me.

Very well written, the pace is consistent and flowing, building up to the climatic ending. If you like #Romance #Suspense, then I can definitely recommend this series, and this addition to you.

5 out of 5 (exceptional)

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

Trent ran after being released from hospital and took time to come to terms with his new found family, and what happened when Amber was in so much danger. When Kelly sets off Megan's spidey senses, she tracks him down and calls him home. But then again, Trent would always come running for Kelly. Finding her pregnant, and in danger, Trent will have to embrace his heritage, and ask for help.

This is book 5 in the series. You don't need to have read the others for this to make sense, but you should probably at least read HIS Return, book 3. You will get a better picture of what happened to Trent that landed him in the hospital. 

I have been waiting for Trent's story, and it did NOT disappoint! 

It's a much sweeter installment, mostly due to Kelly's pregnancy, but that doesn't make it any less of a great read!

I loved that ALL the brothers take part in some way of other, even from afar, to help keep Kelly safe, and to find out who killed her fiancee. I loved that, while not totally forgiving Senator Hamilton for what he did, Trent has at least made peace with the man. But Trent is NOT a Hamilton, he is very adamant about that!

There were several layers to this story and I didn't put them together fast enough, but that's not a bad thing. It just meant I was kept on my toes til the very end. 

I have no doubt some HIS fans won't like this one, no doubt at all. But me?? Loved it, thank you very much!

So glad Ms Kell wrote Trent's story, even is he isn't a Hamilton, but he is really, in every way it matters, he's just stubborn! 

Brad and Matt still have their stories to come, and I look forward to those.
