Destiny drove away from Lincoln Folks and Cage with a heavy heart. He’d thrown any hopes of being more than what they had grown to be out the window without a backward glance. Little did many knows; she had no plans of ever returning because there was nothing left for her anymore. While searching for her purpose, she found something quite meaningful that she never thought was possible – a family. Discovering who her father truly is will help her grow in many ways. The many obstacles that stood to take her out will be crushed by the new determined and strong-willed Dez.
Cage is an ominous creature of habit with a tough interior and exterior. His combative ego and bruising tongue have threatened any semblance of love from Destiny. Though he was a hard nut to crack, he had a hidden passion for her that no one could combat. After she abruptly fled Lincoln Folks, Cage busied himself ridding his mind of anything pertaining to Dez. He has no way of competing with the type of man that she deserves. Sweet, compassionate, and gentle were the last words used to describe the hardcore asshole that was him.
Many close to them both refuse to take his willingness to remain single to heart or her ability to deflect any talks of reconciliation. Cage and Destiny appear to be the only souls that can’t see the inevitable. When a business opportunity arises in Lincoln for Destiny, how will she balance her newfound independence and Cage’s lingering obsession for her sweets?
