Destiny Awaits by Jaidis Shaw is a story about a young woman who has visions, some of which are of the man she is destined to fall in love with. A year after her parents' tragic deaths, Alayna has decided to start over in the sleepy town of Juniper Grove. Thanks to the help of her realtor, Dominic, she's bought a lovely fixer upper that only requires yard work. A chance meeting with the young man tending her garden begins stirring a feeling of belonging that she hasn't felt since her parents passed away. An evening stroll turns into an encounter with a vampire, and she quickly learns nothing is quite what it seems in Juniper Grove. Is Jayden the mysterious young man that haunted her visions since she was a little girl? Will Gavin succeed in ending her life?
Destiny Awaits is a wonderful paranormal romance. Jaidis Shaw's descriptions were very detailed. I was able to picture every aspect of the story vividly. The attraction between Jayden and Alayna was instant, and you also watch them grow as a couple. There's some mystery in the story as well; it kept me engrossed and I was really sorry to see the book end. If you like vampire and shifter novels, you will absolutely love this one. I can't wait for the next book in the series, as I'd love to see more written about Juniper Grove and the other residents there - are there other supernatural beings living in the town?
