I have heard amazing things about Rochelle Paige and her great stories. I have never had the pleasure of reading her. I could not have picked a better introduction to Rochelle than this book. It truly blew me away. Faith and Dillon’s love story is beautiful, emotional and it seems that these two were fated to be together, to heal each other and to find the happiness that had eluded them both for quite some time.
I’ve read a lot of strong women characters. Their stories have ranged from as fantastic as healthy relationships to the worst possible abuse. Faith’s story as a young child in the foster care system slayed by heart and battered my soul from the moment I met her. Neglect at the hands of her mother and a foster family, Faith finds herself at death’s door but is given a second chance when she receives a transplant. Grabbing her life with both hands she taps into her inner strength and makes her life count. She left me so stunned and so grateful for my own well being. I rooted for her and demanded her happiness with every word that I read.
Dillon has had his own losses and engages in very high risk behaviors to cope. When his mother and father rescue him once again, the deal made brings a former foster kid into his life and changes his life in ways that he could not imagine. Thanks to Faith, Dillon begins to understand how precious life is and how the things he has taken for granted can change everyday life for Faith. The bond and the chemistry between these two was incredible. This time and experience he has had with her is simply eye opening. Not only for him but for me as well.
The ending of this book floored me! I sat and shook my head in disbelief and I am so anxiously awaiting Serenity to hit my kindle so I can finally see how the love story between Faith and Dillon ends. This duet is set to be one of my favorites this year! Rochelle Paige is so wonderfully talented. Her words are incredible and I’m just sorry that it has taken me this long to discover her. But since I have messaged her a million times while reading Fortuity, she’s got to realize she has a new fan in me!
FANTASTICALLY DONE, Rochelle!
The only kinds of luck I knew were bad and worse…until my life hung in the balance. I finally caught a break in the form of a second chance.
I vowed not to let it go to waste.
To make a difference.
But I didn’t start really living until I met him.
My complete opposite—except for our matching tortured souls.
I couldn’t resist him for long.
How could I when his smallest touch made my heart race?
When it felt like we were destined to be together.
But sometimes luck and sorrow are intertwined…
Fortuity is the first book in the Fortuity Duet.
Dillon twisted his neck and flashed me an apologetic grin over his shoulder. Unwanted butterflies swirled in my belly, and I quickly yanked my hands away from his shoulders and took a step backwards. His eyes flashed with male satisfaction and his grin grew wider. Determined to ignore the impact he had on me, I shifted my focus to the students. “Your test date is coming fast, so you’ll need to squeeze in as much extra study time as you can without neglecting your regular coursework. Maybe set aside some time during Thanksgiving break when you don’t have as much homework.”
“Ugh. Studying over break sucks,” one of the girls complained.
“Yeah, but you guys are in the homestretch. This test score is one of the last things you need to get into college. Trust me, it’ll be worth the extra effort.”
“I guess if you could get into college while recovering from a transplant, then the least I can do is a little bit of studying over a holiday break that isn’t even that big of a deal since I don’t have a family to celebrate it with anyway.”
The other kids nodded in agreement, and I snuck a peek at Dillon while everyone finished packing up. His brown eyes were wide with shock. I quickly looked away before he could ask me anything, and focused on saying my goodbyes as the kids all headed out. We both kept quiet—for which I was incredibly grateful—as Dillon helped me clean up the room. When we were back on the road, I turned to him and asked, “Were you really teaching my kids how to count cards?”
His lips tilted up at the edges. “Maybe just a little.”
“It’s a good thing none of them have any money to gamble or else they might learn to enjoy blackjack as much as you do.” His lip tilt turned into a full-fledged grin, and I glared at him. “I don’t know why you’re grinning at me! Look at what your affinity for gambling got you.”
“What?” He pointed at his face. “The black eye?”
“Yeah, for starters.”
His grin grew into a blinding smile. “It was worth it.”
“Because it’s the reason I met you.”
Shit. Those damn butterflies took flight in my stomach again.
