The day Destiny Brockman moved into her apartment she met her neighbor across the hall, Miles Stafford. He's just the type of playboy she tends to avoid like the plague.

Destiny is busy concealing just how much her brother's recent death has affected her. He was at the top of his class and starting to make a name for himself in politics. To escape her feelings, Destiny buries herself within her law career.

Miles lives life to the fullest, with no apologies to anyone. It's not that he has a death wish. He just knows from his family's history, that he can't expect to live that long.

Adrianne Byrd does a great job with character development and growth, as we watch her characters progress over a 10-year span. (Jan., 256 pp., $6.99)
