Do you believe in fate?

World-renowned mountain climber and nature photographer Ty Braden never believed in second dates, much less heart-pounding, steal-his-breath love. But that was before a trip to Saint-Luc, where he met funny, strong, and entrancingly beautiful Aiyla Bell, a ski instructor and fellow photographer whose hopes and dreams, and love of the outdoors, aligned perfectly with his—and whose kisses alone turned him inside out.

After spending five magical days and four sweet, soulful nights falling in love, Aiyla couldn’t imagine a day without Ty. But when he asked her to go with him on his next assignment, his reputation for having women at his beck and call stopped her from upending the life she’d worked so hard to create.

Months later fate steps in when a chance encounter brings Ty and Aiyla together for a five-day wilderness event held in the Colorado Mountains. Their deep, passionate connection is stronger than ever, and Ty is bound and determined not to lose her again. But when tragedy strikes and their worlds are turned upside down, their love faces the truest test of all.


What a great twist on a second chance romance.  Melissa Foster takes what could easily have been a nice cute story about fate and second chances and turns it into an emotional story about two people who find each other and how they handle adversity together.  Ty and Aiyla are not typical characters in a romance novel.  Both of them have a love and passion for adventure that I doubt the average reader can relate to, however, the characters are still easy to understand and love and cheer for.  I recommend for anyone looking for a story that is a little different than the normal read but still the feel-good romance you expect from Melissa Foster.
