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.
Rochelle Paige is the Amazon bestselling author of more than twenty books. She absolutely adores reading and her friends growing up used to tease her when she trailed after them, trying to read and walk at the same time. She loves stories with alpha males, sassy heroines, hot sex and happily ever afters. She is a bit of a genre hopper in both her reading and her writing. So far she’s written books in several romance sub-genres including new adult, contemporary, paranormal and romantic suspense.
She is the mother of two wonderful sons who inspired her to chase her dream of being an author. She wants them to learn from her that you can live your dream as long as you are willing to work for it.
HOLY CRAP Y’ALL!! This book is so crazy good. Although I can’t wait for the next one, and initially wanted to throw a Veruca Salt sized tantrum about not having the ending, it really does need to be in two books. So, while I want to be Veruca, I will patiently (or impatiently) wait for Serenity (May 8th) to arrive.
Faith is one of the strongest female characters I have read in a while. Scratch that, she’s just one of the strongest characters I’ve read. After her mom died, she is put into the system, bouncing around from house to house, looking for her place in life. She is looking to survive the present, not really looking to the future. When she gets sick in one of those houses, her life changes. Just as she’s about to lose all faith, lose all hope, she receives a miracle.
Dillon is suffering from loss, but isn’t handling it in a healthy way. He has turned to gambling to help him cope. His parents, at a loss for how to help him, ask Faith to bring him with her to her volunteering. His mother has ulterior motives, though, since she’s been trying to get Dillon and Faith to meet for months. When they do finally meet, they both feel the pull towards each other.
If you’ve read Push the Envelope (which, if you haven’t, you’re seriously missing out) then Dillon might remind you a bit of Drake. He pushes Faith, while trying not to scare her away. The moment he met Faith, even though she was mad at him, he knows what he wants, the same way Drake did, after realizing that Alexa was single. Since I loved Drake, I really loved Dillon. I loved that he tried to make everyday special for Faith. I love that he loves to surprise her. I love that Faith takes a risk on him, even though she’s working hard on her own goals. I love that they both support each other, support the other ones goals, and want them to succeed instead of giving something up to spend more time with each other. I basically love everything about this book.
Rochelle Paige continues to amaze me with her ability to draw me in with every book she writes. Her ability to form characters that are love-able, even when you want to shake them, makes me feel as if I’m watching a movie instead of reading a book (wait- can I start a petition going for this?) Rochelle, if I say I love you enough can I get the next book? KIDDING!
