Just Beginning (A Prequel To Just Destiny) by Theresa Rizzo **Tara’s Review**






From award-winning author, Theresa Rizzo, comes this prequel to bestselling Just Destiny.

Twenty-something Jenny Campbell’s life has been a series of screw-ups, and the latest one endangered her little brother’s life. But when she falls for sophisticated Gabe Harrison, she has a chance to turn her life around…if she can keep her past a secret.

Gabe’s career as a successful doctor has left just enough time for his teenage children and little else. But when beautiful, vivacious Jenny comes along, she breathes love and happiness into his lonely life. There’s only one problem: their families are opposed to their relationship. Money and age differences mean nothing to Gabe as long as they have trust, love, and respect.

But can two out of three be good enough?

In the prequel to Just Destiny, we are treated to the story behind the story.

Finding out how Jenny and Gabe meet and fall in love. We get to follow their lives leading up to their mini getaway that changed it all.


I loved the fact that we got more insight into Gabe’s past and what made him take the path to become a doctor, and how much he fell in love with Jenny.


I loved seeing their relationship blossom and the passion that Gabe and Jenny had for each other.


Overall, I enjoyed the book, it was a super quick read that I finished in a few hours. I’m normally not a fan of prequels unless of course I read them first, but having read this months after Just Destiny brought me right back. I really enjoyed it.

I would recommend both books in this series. They are great reads.
