REVIEW: Meant To Be by Jennifer Probst


 Meant To Be is a novel that shows us how impactful a chance meeting can be, how grief can be a sustaining state of being for quite a while, how guilt can contribute to not so great decisions, and how love can be a healing balm to all. 

Chiara and Sebastian meet at a club and seem to immediately click but due to various reasons they part amicably ways that evening. Fast forward through the years and surprisingly they're in each other's lives in ways no one could've predicted. It's only after a tragedy hits and a chance meeting at a club do Chiara and Sebastian find themselves actively in their lives at first. It's not initially by choice, and there are many tense moments, but as the pages turn, these two work through their mutual grief and guilt. It's not always pretty and sometimes you want to shake some sense into them, but they find their way to a sweet and happy ending. 

Meant To Be has an unusual beginning and interesting dynamics between characters and I have a feeling we'll be seeming much more of all these characters--it'll be interesting to see where and how they all end up. 



Two broken hearts discover an unpredictable path to healing in an emotional romance about fate and second chances by New York Times bestselling author Jennifer Probst.

It’s been two years since Chiara Kennedy lost her dearest friend, Rory. Chiara misses everything about her. Rory’s widowed husband is another story. Sebastian Ryder is a man Chiara had secretly wanted, let slip away, and hoped to never see again. Then fate throws them together for an unexpected one-night stand and a morning after of new challenges.

Sebastian had a soul mate in Rory. Shutting down after his tragic loss, he kept a cool distance from everyone—including Chiara, with whom he once shared a deep if fleeting affection. That was over and done with a long time ago. But when they meet again, old emotions resurface along with a heart-wounding past that haunts them both.

As Chiara and Sebastian grow closer, finally getting to know each other, Chiara struggles with feelings of guilt even as she cherishes her second chance with Sebastian. Will fate allow them to overcome the past, or are they destined to always wonder if they are truly meant to be?
