This is my stop during the blog tour for Synchrony (Destiny #2) by Cindy Ray Hale. This blog tour is organized by Lola’s Blog Tours . The blog tour runs from May 5 till May 25, you can view the complete tour schedule here.
When her parents discover sheís been sneaking out with Isaac Robinson, the forbidden Baptist boy, Mormon girl Destiny Clark decides itís time to keep their relationship quiet. As their relationship moves to shakier ground, Destiny discovers that Isaac has a terrible secret, and she is left completely shattered.
The moment Destiny feels all hope is lost, Preston Nelson, her longtime church friend and Isaac’s bitter rival, arrives like a beacon of light. It isn’t long before two separate disasters strike for Preston and Destiny’s best friend, Hannah. As Destiny helps them through their issues, she discovers that sometimes the best way to forget about your own problems is to help a friend in need.
Just as her heart begins to mend and her friendship with Preston begins to heat up, Isaac walks back into her life, threatening to rekindle the feelings sheíd hoped to bury forever. Will Destiny and Preston find the synchrony they so desperately need, or will she find a way to forgive Isaac and return to his outstretched arms?
You can find Synchrony on Goodreads.
We get another perspective in Synchrony. I’m so excited about being in Preston’s head. He adds to this triangle, and it works.
The ending is somewhat of a cliffhanger. I can’t wait to see what happens next in this series.
Destiny Clark, a young Mormon girl living in Tennessee, is wildly infatuated with Isaac Robinson, the headmaster’s son at her Baptist high school. When they’re cast together in the school’s production of Les MisÈrables, Destiny is horrified to find that she has to be publicly humiliated by acting out her true feelings of rejection onstage.
As their rehearsals begin, Destiny realizes the unimaginable: Isaac has developed deep feelings for her despite their religious differences and the fact that he has a girlfriend.
But will they be able to find their place amongst the backbiters of their ultra-conservative world?
Weaving around Destiny and Isaac’s alternating viewpoints, Destiny is the first book in a series inspired by the characters of Les MisÈrables and explores heartbreak, self-discovery, intolerance, and love.

I loved this story! It’s so nice seeing a YA story where the characters have crushes on each other and don’t want to jump the each other’s bones.
I recommend this book to any age. Even at almost 30, I learned a few things.
