Before the heartbreak, the life-altering choices, and real life closed in on them, they were just two kids in love.
Nick Sutter, the town bad boy, star of Pittsford High School’s football team, and all around playboy wasn’t used to having to work for dates. Leah Carmichael, Pittsford’s Golden Girl, and star on the track team had no desire to land a boyfriend. When she walked into Physics class on the first day of school her junior year, and realized who was in her class, she vowed to ignore him. Nick had no intention of letting her off the hook though. He patiently waited until the right moment to let her know he wanted her.
Unable to resist him, Leah agreed to go on a date. Try as she might, the feelings she’d been suppressing all year came to the surface, and washed over her like a tidal wave. She wanted him, and he wanted her, but…Nick had scouts ready to make his football dreams a reality.
Deciding that Leah was more important than his future, Nick gave up his chance to play at the college level. He chose to stay behind, and build the foundation for what he thought would be a solid future for him and Leah. Only Leah had other plans… she wanted to get out of Pittsford as fast as possible, and was willing to give up anything to do it, including Nick. When the Olympic scouts offered her a chance of a lifetime, she couldn’t tell them ‘no.’
We saw forgiveness in Shattered, desire in Restored, and unconditional love in Renewed. Now, see how it all started in Destined- Nick and Leah’s beginning.


“I’m not going to cry. I’m not going to cry. I’m not going to cry,” I kept muttering as I scurried through the halls trying to get to class before he could catch up with me. I don’t know why I was so pissed. I mean, he didn’t do anything. He didn’t ask for it. He didn’t act as if he liked it, and he hasn’t done anything to make me not trust him. He’s been nothing but trustworthy since we defined this relationship. “Get a grip, Leah,” I sighed when Avery and I rounded the corner where our classes were

“He wants you, ya know,” she paused at the door and faced me.

“I know,” I nodded. “I’m just tired of that bitch hanging on him all the time. I wish he would tell her to go to hell,” I growled.

“He tried,” Nick’s voice sounded from behind me causing me to jump.

I whirled around of him and saw worry along with a silent apology in his eyes. “I hate her,” I mumbled as I clinched and unclenched my fists beside me. “She’s always around, and I…” I trailed off as I looked away. I was so mad that I couldn’t even think clearly.

“Come with me,” Nick reached for my arm and began pulling me in the direction of the weight room.

“Where are we going? We have class!” I hissed. “Nick, I can’t skip.”

“Missing one class is not going to kill you. You have like a 5.0 GPA, anyway,” he tossed over his shoulder. “I need to talk and you need to listen,” he sighed as he pushed open the boy’s locker room door. He stuck his head in and looked around. “All clear,” he tugged me after him and continued striding with purpose until we reached the football team’s area. “Sit!” he pointed to one of the benches.

I lowered myself onto the hard pine and slowly lifted my eyes to meet his. He was pacing in front of me, and grabbing at his hair.

“I like you, Leah. I don’t know how to make that any clearer. I don’t want anyone else. Not Becca, not anyone else, only you.”
