BookWhisperer Rating:

Meet Havoc Caldwell & Carla Walker...

A man who walked away from it all.
A woman who craves it all.
A destiny they never saw coming.

Havoc Caldwell lost everything two years ago and left town a bitter and hard man. Now he lives life as a nomad with no ties or commitments to anyone but himself and his club, Storm MC. 

Carla Walker is searching for more out of life. She grew up with no father, and her family struggled to make ends meet. Now she wants it all - a man who will make her his number one priority, a successful career, and a family of her own. 

A chance encounter leads to a one night stand, and neither expect it to go any further. Havoc has no desire for a relationship and Carla could never see herself settling down with a biker. Sometimes though, a destiny you could never imagine exists and as much as you fight it, there’s no way you can escape it. 

Destined Havoc is a new twist to the beloved Storm series. This novella is a branching stem from the original series to encompass the nomad Havoc and Nash's youngest sister Carla. It had been a short bit since I read Revive where I immediately fell in love with Nash and his entire family, so it naturally took me a minute to gain my bearing at the beginning. Once I had sorted out Havoc's role as the nomad enforcer that was introduced late in the series I thought I was golden. Call me stupid when Carla points out Nash as her brother, and I just about fell out of my chair. Chastising myself for not picking this up sooner I was still totally engrossed in this budding disguised romance that Havoc and Carla are building. Regardless of the position that these characters view their relationship it is quite obvious that this is going to be a mile marker romance. If asked prior to starting this story I would not have anticipated such a strong story line for Havoc's character, but I am so impressed with the direction. Predictably Nash has a serious issues with this pairing, and that was totally to be expected. It was also expected that he would be the force to be reckoned with, but I was totally taken by surprise that the development took place at the cliff hanger. More importantly it was equally startling when the cliff hanger was realized, and I think it is a perfect set up for an amazing series of its own.  I am impressed every single time I pick up a Levine story, not because I don't think she is capable, but rather that every book raises the bar that is already set so high. Levine just keeps giving us more and more, and I hope that her tap never runs dry. I am looking forward to many more years of incredible reads from this talented author. Not only from the well loved Storm series, but also the new creations that she has underway.
