    **JOSIE'S REVIEW***4.5 Stars*Enduring Fate by Alicia Rae was an amazing, beautiful and heartwarming read. I have read other books by this author, but this read has to be my favorite. The writing, characters and plot of the story was both intriguing and emotional. I love reading books about true love, a simple and carefree relationship and character connections that are so natural and believable. Enduring Fate was emotional and at times tugged at my heart but the main characters fight to move on and accept love was worth all the ups and downs.Paige Summers lives a simple life in Tennessee on her family ranch. She loves riding and training horses. She is also in love with Colton, her first love and the boy that she grew up with. Paige had it all until she fell off her horse and suffered severe injuries to her legs. Paige has severe scarring on her legs, pins, suffers from constant numbing and pain which required her to go through intense rehabilitation. Paige’s life as she knows it has changed forever. She is no longer able to do the one thing that she loves most in the world, ride horses. She has lost her confidence and blames herself for that day. She decides she needs space from her family, her family’s ranch and from Colton.Colton is my new book boyfriend. He is swoon-worthy. He’s caring and selfless when it comes to the only woman he has ever loved. Paige was and is his childhood sweetheart. He sees forever with her on his family’s ranch but he knows she is suffering from guilt, depression and needs the time to heal. While he lets Paige go to heal, he is forced to build his dream home and family business without Paige by his side. As more times goes, Paige is reluctant to come home. So, he takes things into his own hands and make sure Paige comes back to Tennessee, to her home and eventually back to him. Colton has a plan. A plan to show Paige that her place is with him on his ranch, on the home he has built for them while she was away.Colton and Paige’s relationship was so refreshing to see unfold. Colton never doubted Paige’s love for him. He just knew he has to take the time to slowly ease her back into the life she loved once before. Over time Paige begins to let go and eases back into her simple life with Colton. With Colton’s love and patience, Paige found peace with herself. When strange and dangerous things start to happen around Colton’s ranch, will Colton and Paige be able to have the simple home life on the ranch they’ve dreamed about or will the threat tear them apart? One thing is certain Colton and Paige love each other and will sacrifice and fight to make sure the ranch is safe and neither gets hurt. Fate made two children fall in love years ago, will fate keep them together forever?I really enjoyed this book. There was no cheating. Just a couple fighting to move on from a terrible accident. The author did a wonderful job with the drama in the story. She also gives us some suspenseful moments. I really loved that we got a true and pure love from this young couple, their love of animals and a simple life on a ranch. I did not want to put this book down. I felt connected with the characters and could actually see myself on a ranch living that kind of life. I can’t wait to see what the next installment will bring Paige and Colton as they continue their journey.

    Enduring Fate by Alicia Rae is a 2014 publication. I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Paige loves life on her Tennessee ranch, horses, and her boyfriend, Colton. But, a riding accident left Paige with rods and pins in her leg as well as major scarring, and an intense regiment with a physical therapist. Now, life on the ranch is not at all what Paige wants, which will put her relationship with Colton on the line. Will Paige be able to reconcile her fear, pain and guilt in order to live the life Colton loves and deserves or does fate have other ideas? This is a very emotional story about a young woman who suffered as much damage emotionally as she did physically from her riding accident and her road back to recovery and to the man who has patiently waited for her to come around, but a their may still be a few bumps in the road for the couple before their lives are back on the same page again. I am looking forward to seeing how they work out their problems because one thing is for sure... this couple is meant to be together. Right now the relationship is being sorely tested, but I have faith they will somehow, someway make it work in the end. I will enjoy going on that journey with them.Note: I feel it should be noted this book does end with a bit of cliff hanger. Now, while this can be frustrating, especially when you don't know it's coming, I don't mind all that much because I know there will be a follow up and the story will continue. It's like watching a TV show with an end of season cliffhanger and having to wait the whole summer to find out what happened, but at least it gives you something to look forward to. So, don't let this deter you from starting this series because I can tell it's going to be a good one. 4 stars

    Second Chance Romance has always been one of my favorite plots, and Alicia Rae had been one of my favorite authors since I started reading the Beautiful Series. In Fate of Love, we are about to meet new, amazing set of characters and not to mention see the old ones we came to love from her previous series.How much can you endure for love?Colton Kingston had loved no one else his entire life. Paige Summers had held his heart since he was young to know what he was feeling for her was indeed love. They were each other’s first. They had plans, they were so sure of their future, until one accident broke their world apart – causing so much pain for both sides. Paige had lost her dreams. She didn’t want to see the pity in the eyes of her parents and Colton, she decided to move away, leaving everyone and everything she loved.She thought what she was doing was for the best. She can’t do what she does best, she knew she wasn’t the woman for Colton anymore. But can she ever let go of the love that she and Colton shared for so long?You will like Colton. His love for Paige was certainly unquestionable, and for him to allow her to go away for that long was hard for him, and yet he allowed it. Not because he wanted to, but because she asked him to. When he finally decided that her time away is enough, he will do everything to have her again. This time, for her to stay forever.What Paige did brought pain to a lot of people she loved, but I understood her. Her life was changing, her dreams gone bleak; she didn’t know what to do anymore. Nevertheless, she found another passion with her newfound life. It wasn’t the same as doing the one she loves, but it filled her time. When her best friend finally asked her to take some time off, and go home, she got a little apprehensive, will she be able to come home? Will she be able to face Colton again?This is a story about love, second chances and surviving the odds. Paige is the woman who has lost everything, only to find it again through love, and for the man who is willing to fight and endure for true love. Enduring Fate is a start of another great series by Alicia Rae.

But to Colton, who has loved her forever she is beautiful and perfect. He helps her and motivates her to get better. Their story of course has to have drama. How will our love birds deal with the added drama? Will love be enough to over come the dramatic events that unfold? Will childhood dreams and goals become reality? Will fate keep our couple together or will it keep them apart? I enjoy Alicia Rae's books. In this book we even got to revisit some characters from another series and I truly enjoyed that. This story is good and I was truly flipping pages because I needed to see how perfect and loving Colton was. I wasn't disappointed at all by his character or the strong heroine. Another beautiful story from Alicia. Can't wait for the next installment. Yes, I am holding my breath for it. It was that good!!!

    Actual Rating 3.5Colton and Paige deserve each other. They are meant for each other. Both of them know this. But knowing it and achieving happiness don't appear to go hand in hand in this story.Paige has a lot to cope with following an extremely difficult time in her life. But rather than allow Colton to make it easier, she pulls away from him. This is her way of trying to cope.But she isn't really coping. She is surviving one day at a time. Life is going on. But yet again fate steps in and gives both Paige and Colton even more to deal with.The ending of the book was a shocker! It does end in a cliffhanger. But I had book 2 waiting in the wings!

    It really should be 4.5 stars!! Paige Summer has loved Colton Kingston for as long as she could remember. After she suffered a life alternating accident last summer losing more than her confidence. She has been trying to find her way back. But to do that she felt she had to leave the only home she knew and the man she loved. Fate is testing Paige’s strength and her love but can both survive the test or will Paige end up losing everything.I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.Paige is a strong-willing, independent women who is having a hard time dealing with the lasting effects of her accident. Her injuries are holding her back from moving forward and getting her old life back. She left home and moved in with her best friend to work on herself, but by doing so that meant she left Colton behind. Paige is questioning everything she knows including her love for Colton. She’s been away from Colton for three months and she thought he didn’t think about her until her best friend told her that he’d been there a few times talking to her about Paige’s progress. When her best friends plants a seed about going back home to spend some time with her family, Paige takes the opportunity to do so. What she didn’t expect was to see Colton so soon after she arrived home. This stirs many feelings up inside her. Her fear of the horses and her love for Colton are so close together that one is always with the other. She knows Colton has been patient with her recovery and letting her go to recuperate from her injuries and work through her fears, but she knows he is running out of patience and wants her back. The problem is that Colton and horses are entwined and if she can’t get over her fear, how could she be good enough for him. That’s the question she needs to find the answer to before it’s too late. Colton Kingston has lived next door to Paige since he was five. He’s known since then that she is the one and only woman he’ll ever love. She is his soul mate and he wants her back. Letting her move away to work out her issues and get physically better was only supposed to be temporary but after three months apart, Colton is done with trying things Paige’s way. He wants her home where he feels she belongs. The accident didn’t just affect Paige’s live but his too. The thoughts of the day he almost lost her and what he should’ve done plays on his mind every day. He needs to have her near him again and he will do anything to get her back where she belongs. Colton is a strong, gentle, kind hearted man who will do anything for the people he loves. Paige has always been his and now that she is gone leaving him feeling incomplete. He talks her best friend into planting the seed in Paige’s head to go home for a visit, however Colton plans on convincing her to stay with him. Getting her to stay will be a task but he is willing to do whatever it takes to get back the woman he loves.This is the first book in the Fate for Love series and the first book by Alicia Rae I have read. Alicia wrote an amazing heartwarming and romantic story that I couldn’t put it down. Colton and Paige’s story is unlike anything I’ve read in a while. The love they share has been with them since they were kids and neither one of them has ever questioned it or each other, until Paige’s accident. That Accident changes both of them in ways they never knew it would. The chemistry these two have is undeniable and unforgettable. Their love is something we all want and few ever have. Just when you think they are about to get back to where they were before the accident someone steps in and tests their faith in each other. Of course this is a series so we were left with many questions and no answer. I’m impatiently awaiting for the next book in the series. If you’re looking for an amazingly sweet and intense love story then you found the series for you. http://friendstilltheendbookblog.blog...

    Alicia Rae has an incredible way of intertwining her characters throughout the story in such a way that there is a heart connect between the reader and the people we meet in the world she has created. When the Beautiful Series ended and the Fate for Love Series was alluded to at the end, I was excited to meet a new cast of characters and have glimpses into the lives of those I had come to love in the series before. Enduring Fate does not disappoint and it is exactly what fans of Alicia Rae’s have come to love and expect.Enduring Fate starts with a young woman, Paige, who is recovering from a horrific accident that left her destroyed both physically and emotionally. She is attempting to get her physical body back to where it used to be, but she is hiding from her life and family, ignoring the emotional and mental repercussions of what happened that day. Then we see Colton, the man she left behind. He is determined to love her from afar until she is ready to come home. But when she takes too long, he enlists the help of a friend to get her back to where she belongs, by his side. As they attempt to process what happened months ago and figure out what is next, the road is filled with many twists and turns that will both break your heart and mend it. There are moments of sadness and anger, as well as pure joy and peace.Paige is an incredibly woman. She is going through Physical Therapy to help her walk again and learning how to put the pieces of her life back together again. Her determination to be whole again is admirable. She pushes through the pain and makes such amazing physical progress throughout the story. Having been in PT myself post surgery, I could not help but cheer her on as she overcame the obstacles and positively progressed day by day. Colton is a man that knows what he wants and is patient to wait for it. He is strong, both physically and emotionally. He is responsible, kind, hard-working, and full of life and passion. His work ethic and determination is so well written, creating a hero worthy of swooning and our wonderful heroine.This story is written from both Paige and Colton’s point of views. This allows the reader to better understand their emotional journey, which is half the process to getting their lives back to where they need to be. This second chance romance was so sweet. I love how they took their time and eased back into what had been. As childhood best friends who turned into lovers, their is so much history between these two. Their lives have been intertwined for as long as they can remember, which creates a unique twist on this story. I loved the roles that their parents both played in this story, adding support and depth to Paige and Colton.Enduring Fate contemplates what was, what is, and what could be. It takes two very strong and wonderful characters, giving them the chance and space they need to reconnect in an authentic and powerful way. This book is a story of healing, love, passion, and second chances. It has emotional highs and lows, with a bit of intrigue and danger thrown in. I love how the story connects so many moving parts and does it well. As the reader, you are given what you need, when you need it. This book is an incredible first installment to the Fate for Love series and I can hardly wait to see what Alicia has in store for the us!Fair warning, there is a second book to this tale that is available in March of 2015. I am so used to Alicia’s Beautiful Series, in which each character has their HEA at the end of each book, and when I got to the last page I was surprised to say the least. I am ready for the second book and the conclusion to Paige and Colton’s story! So be warned that there is more coming, especially after that ending! Don’t miss this book!

    Review originally posted at Ramblings From This ChickI am a huge fan of Alicia Rae's, and I have loved every story I have read by her. So I was super excited to see that she had a new series coming out. I always know that when I start one of her books I am going to really lose myself in a well written and heartfelt story. Enduring Fate was everything that I had been hoping for, and it proved once again why I love Alicia's writing. This book was sweet and emotional, and I am already waiting for the next book!Colton Kingston and Paige Summers have loved each other since they were children. They always knew that their fate was to be together, and have been pursuing their dreams together since they could remember. But after a tragedy struck, Paige suddenly began to question everything. She left town and asked Colton for space while she tried to pick up the pieces and figure out what to do with her life. Now she is back and things between them are different. The love they once shared might have changed, but it is still there for both of them and Colton will do whatever it takes to not let go of Paige this time around. But when even more obstacles get in their way, Colton and Paige must figure out if their love can endure all.I loved Colton. He was beyond sweet and thoughtful, and I loved how devoted he was to Paige. His love for Paige never wavered, and he would do absolutely anything for her. He was protective and caring, but without being controlling or overbearing. I loved everything about him, and I thought that he was perfect for Paige. Paige was great as well, and she had a sweetness to her that was completely true. She was kind and caring, and you could just instantly tell that she had a goodness to her that you don't often see. She had been through a lot though, and my heart really hurt for her and everything she was going through. While trying to heal herself physically from an accident that had happened, she was also trying to heal herself emotionally as well. She was struggling so much, and the guilt of everything that had happened really weighed on her. I loved seeing Colton support and encourage her though, and by his showing her things he also started to bring her back. She thought that she no longer fit with the world they had grown up in, but Colton did everything he could to show her that wasn't true. These two had such history together, and their connection was undeniable. They had loved each other for so long, and you could see that it was a love that was true and rare. They had great chemistry, and were one of those couples that would almost make you sick if it wasn't so adorable.Overall, I thought that this was a really great book! I loved seeing characters from Alicia Rae's Beautiful series, and it was nice to catch up a bit with them. But Colton and Paige really grabbed a hold of my heart and I need more of them. I will warn you that Enduring Fate does end on a cliffhanger, and it kills me to have to wait. But trust me when I tell you that this book is definitely worth the read. The next book is scheduled to come out in March of 2015 as of now, and it honestly can't get here soon enough! I highly recommend Enduring Fate as well as the rest of Alicia Rae's books. If you haven't read anything by her yet, you are seriously missing out on some great stories. Alicia Rae is quickly becoming one of my favorite contemporary romance writers, and at this point I would literally read anything with her name on it.**ARC Provided by Inkslinger PR**

    GENRE: Contemporary THEME: Romance, CowboysRECEIVED: TourBLOG: http://seeingnight.blogspot.com/3.5 starsREVIEW: Enduring Fate reminded me a lot of the television show Heartland. A girl who loves her life on her family ranch, as well as taking care and riding horses. An accident happens changes everything, she starts to second-guess and isn’t sure what path is the right one in her life now. I cant imagine going through something so traumatic that it makes you question the life you grew up loving. Enduring Fate follows Paige who was living the dream on her ranch with her horses and the love of her life and neighbor Colton. But an accident that cost the life of her horse and almost the life of Colton, changes Paige outlook and takes her away from everything she loved. Now trying to work through therapy to help her injured leg, she also has to deal with the fact she left behind Colton who isn’t ready to let her go. Both are struggling with moving forward and neither want to let go with their past but are afraid of the future. This whole story was an emotional roller coaster, Paige is constantly questioning her life on the ranch and pushing away the love of her life. I actually couldn’t connect to Paige as I felt she wasn’t really thinking about everyone she was hurting including herself. There were a lot of challenges getting in the way of Colton winning her back, not only the fear haunting her but his own home has been targeted by a powerful man in their town. Nothing seemed to be going right for either of them and I felt horrible for both. Colton was my favorite; he seriously is a cowboy and has the biggest heart. Everything he does in this story he’s doing it for the love of Paige and hoping he can fight for their future. He has been so patient with her pushing him away as well as the fact she blames herself for what was an accident. I adored every scene Colton was in and even more so when he brought back the light in Paige again.Overall I loved the passion and heartfelt moments of the main couple, there was so much sadness but I have a feeling these two will beat the roadblocks ahead. There is a major villain who is determined to make Colton’s life a living hell and seriously I wanted Colton to just give this person a piece of his mind and fight back. The ending is killer; I hate cliffhangers with a passion and usually don’t like reading a series that has them unless they are completed. So I’m a bit bummed but I think Paige will become the fighter in the next book and help Colton. In the end Rae does a fantastic job pulling at the heartstrings and keeping an even pace that kept me hooked and rooting for two loving characters.

    ***I received a copy in exchange for an honest review ***Enduring Fate is the first book in Alicia Rae’s new series Fate For Love. I was looking forward to meeting cowboy Colton Kingston, who we had met briefly at the end of A Beautiful Purpose the last book in Alicia Beautiful’ series. “Paige had change my fate the day she walked into my life. I was hers and she was mine”It was simple Paige Summers was the love of Colton’s life, the woman who he had always planned to spend the rest of his life with his farm. However, their love and strength is tested when tragedy strikes. Paige starts to question what her future holds when the past still haunts her. For Colton it was still simple all, he wants, is Paige, and he is going to fight for what he wants. “I’d loved this girl with my heart and soul, and now, I was going to remind her that my love for her would never change, no matter what challenges came our way” Paige and Colton's connection is strong, and I like them together. Colton was a sexy cowboy with a heart of gold, and I liked him. I love the way he was with Paige, and the things he did for her. He was so sweet, and so patience, all he wants to make her happy, and show her that she doesn’t need to let the past influence her future. I liked Paige, and I felt for her as she struggling to put the past behind her, and her emotions are running high.“Our kind of love is rare, Paige, and I won’t let your fears keep you from me. You are stronger than that. Our love runs deeper than that. It’s one of fate” Love the way Alicia had incorporated my favorite characters from the beautiful series; it was lovely to see them again. As I read this book I, was looking to see who out of the secondary characters may have a book of their own later on in the series. I have a feeling that Paige’s best friend Ashlee and her sister Kayla may get one. I will say the last chapter took me by surprise as I was not expecting the cliffhanger ending, and I did say out loud “what” but to be honest I didn’t mind. And I’m looking forward to the next book in the series Boundless Love, as its safe to say that Paige and Colton’s story is far from over, and it's now Paige who has to fight for her one true love. Overall I enjoyed this book, I enjoy the storyline it was a heartfelt read. I love Alicia’s writing as it’s always passionate, and from the heart. I can tell she has a passion for horse and knows about life on a ranch. And as I write this review on a cold, wet day in England I know where I wanted to be, Oh yes on a ranch with my very own sexy cowboy. If you’re a fan Alicia or you like a good romance, or simply you like cowboys then I recommend this book.

    “Oh,” I drawled, “I intend to keep my girl. Don’t you worry about that.”Completely captivating and an emotionally complex, well-written story.Enduring Fate is a second chance love story that takes part three months after a terrible accident that happened in which Paige lost herself. An accident that she can´t stop blaming herself for. An accident that she can still feel it every day as a remainder that makes it harder to move forward and heal.“I’m going to remind you that you are mine, Paige.”“The kind of love we share never dims or fades.”“It’s the kind of love that lasts forever.”I loved Paige´s character. For me it was easy to connect with her and to really understand her and the reasons behind her actions. I just really got her.Colton loves his girl unconditionally and he is patiently waiting for her to find herself‚ stop blaming herself for what happened and finally be herself not completely her old self because it´s simply impossible after what happened which he is aware of.But still there a few more bumps in the road they have to face to finally have their happily ever after.“There is no such thing as enough when it comes to you, Paige,” I answered at last, staring into the depths of her stunningly beautiful eyes. Raising one hand between us, I dragged it back and forth across the base of her jaw. “I always want more with you. I want it all.”Paige and Colton´s story is still not over because Enduring Fate ended with a cliffhanger when I least expected this novel to end but… that just left me craving more. Can´t wait to see what will the next book bring.I simply love Alicia Rae´s novel and her amazing ability and talent to dive deep into the story and develop intelligent, believable and heartwarming flawed characters that I can connect with.≧◔◡◔≦ 4.5 ✰ read ≧◉◡◉≦>>>Complimentary copy provided in exchange for an honest review<<<

    Such an inspiring story that can encourage many to follow through and be at peace.I couldn't even get through half of the story before I felt the water works coming along. This read was really great and truly amazing to see everything unfold before your eyes. I found that I was able to actually relate to our main female character, Paige, and her recovery from a terrible accident that had caused her to put her dream and passion on the back burner. The details made everything come to life; smell the outdoors, see the vivid colors of a sunset, hear the sweet nothings our main male character, Colton, would whisper in Paige's ear. Every sentence may speak of one thing and so much more. I felt entranced in Colton and Paige's struggle along their bumpy road and can't rest until the very end.I sensed a kindred spirit in Paige; experiencing the same type of injury in my own leg and having to put something I love on hold may have been why I was able to connect with her so easily. I adore her characteristics. Colton is most likely the man of any woman's dream.All-American Southern Cowboy consists of: off-the-charts sexy, does manual labor, southern charm, southern accent, and did I mention sexy?..I just could not get enough of Colton and Paige's obvious attraction and affection they still have for one another, even Colton's unconditional love and consideration he has for Paige's well-being. Talk about being utterly catered to; this definitely has its perks..Shoot, if she tells him no one more time, I am calling dibs!.Man, there were so many times I just wished that Colton was a billionaire and had his own security teamRae really went for the deep end and came out triumphant with the descriptive ways she wrote of these unique characters to form all together something soulful and enriching.Can't wait for the next installment in the series and start back up on where Colton and Paige left off.

    I loved this book. Has a lot of emotion in it. Loved the characters Colton Kingston and Paige Summers. Paige and Colton grew up together spending most of their time together.Spending time in the tree fort and watching the sunrises and sunsets. Both of them loved horses. Riding every day. Until one day Paige got brave and she had an riding accident that could change her life forever. Colton saved her but, was it enough for Paige She wanted to be a horse trainer when she grew up. Paige went thru surgery on her leg and has left her with some awful scars along with scars to her heart. She stayed with a friend Ashlee after her surgery in another town helping her with her bakery while going thru physical therapy. While Paige was gone healing Colton made use of his time on his farm. Training horses, fixing up his farm house and the tree fort for hopesthat Paige would return.Paige comes home and gives her heart another chance but things are different and harder for her since she isn't fully healed. Colton tries and doesn't push her, he has hopes that her heart will recover. This story is very emotional. Paige has gone thru hell and back. Emotionally and physically. Colton has waited for her to make her way back to him. Their love is undeniable but can Paige move on and be with Colton and the life he loves? Will all the obstacles that happen push them apart! Is it their fate to be together forever. I cant wait to see what happens next for them to endure. I loved the way this was written with all the vivid images in each scene. The writing was awesome.

    This is my first book by Alicia Rae but I was in dire need of a cowboy book and this one sounded amazing. I am so glad I grabbed in book. As a city girl, cowboy and ranching is so far away from my own reality that I love picturing Wranglers glued to a tight ass, big muscles from all the hard work and a cowboy hat sitting on top of a gorgeous face. Colton Kingston is EXACTLY what I pictured and then some!Paige Summer is recovering from a horrible debilitating riding accident. She ran away from home and everyone who loves her especially Colton. She comes home for a visit and Colton will do everything in his power to make her stay and not run again. Colton seriously is one of the most amazing book boyfriends ever. Besides being a hot cowboy (SWOON), he loves Paige more than anything in the world. The things he does for her are the sweetest gestures ever written. Seriously! I absolutely loved watching Paige and Colton grow as a couple. Their connection is so real and popped off the pages. Alicia Rae’s descriptions made me a part of the story, living on a ranch with beautiful scenery. I devoured this book and was sad when it ended. Speaking of the ending, there was a cliffhanger! One where I wanted to yell at the characters and maybe even the author for doing it to the characters that I am so in love with. No the cliffhanger isn’t make you cry in a corner for days but it definitely made me wish I had the next book immediately! I will tuning in for more Paige and Colton!I recommend this book to anyone who loves a sweet romance and/ or hot cowboys! I received an ARC for an honest review.

    4 starsThis was a touching story of over coming hurtles in Colton and Paige’s life. Would each of them being able to let go of the past to move on with their lives? Or does fate step in and change things? Will these two; who have loved each other whole hearted since they were kids be able to endure the tests that they are put through? Paige Summers was everything that Colton Kingston wanted in his life from the time he was a young kid. She was it for him. He had dreams of their lives together on the ranch with a house full of their own children. But sometimes dreams change and you have to let go of what you truly want.Paige loves Colton with all she has but when she has an accident on her horse one day, the way she saw life changed forever. She has to figure out how to feel whole again. As she struggles with her demons, she must face ones that involve her future with Colton.The chemistry and love between them can be seen on the pages of the book but then the hurt and unsure of what the future holds is just as alive. Alicia Rae was able to bring the emotions out in this book. I had to have tissues ready for the tears, heartbreak and pain that I felt from reading the book. This is most definitely a series to add to your collection. A must read. Plus the cover is exactly how I picture Colton and Paige. I am looking forward to book 2. This phrase keeps coming to mind when I think about this book….sometimes love ain’t enough. Guess we have to wait to see.

    Enduring Fate is book one in Alicia Rae’s new series, Fate for Love. We briefly met Colton at the end of A Beautiful Purpose. This book starts out with meeting Paige and seeing the life she is trying to live, away from her family and love of her life, Colton. Paige is working at her friend’s bakery while attending physical therapy following a tragic accident on her family’s ranch. She returns home for a visit and Colton becomes determined to not let Paige escape again. “Our kind of love is rare Paige and I won’t let your fears keep you from me. You are stronger than that. Our love runs deeper than that. It’s one of fate.”The love between Paige and Colton is never in question. The question is all in whether or not Paige can overcome her fears in order to live the life she has dreamt of since she was a child. “I want you to understand that loving you has never been the problem. It’s….other aspects of our lives that seem to stand in the way.”I loved watching Colton help Paige gradually work through her issues, whether they both knew he was doing it or not. Paige is determined and loves passionately but she is no longer the fearless child she once was. “He could always take my negativity and twist the words into the sincerest and most heartfelt sentiment. It was a true gift of his.”Can Paige and Colton make the life they’ve dreamed of work or will the past be too much to overcome? I definitely recommend this book!5 stars!!

    I had the pleasure of receiving an ARC of Enduring Fate by Ms. Rae. It is actually the first book I have read of hers and I was not disappointed. One of my all time favorite types of romance to read is the “girl/boy have grown up together then fall in love” kind of story. There’s just something warm and fuzzy about them.Colton and Paige grew up together. There never really seemed to be any doubt on whether or not they would be together. It was fated. For the sake of repeating the synopsis……an accident shakes up Paige’s confidence which in turn shakes up their relationship. It’s questioned for the first time. Will Paige be able to get past her issues?The author’s writing allows you to feel how the characters are feeling as you are sitting there and reading their story. I could almost feel Paige’s actual physical pain. There are times when you wonder if she will be able to push past all the hurt and get back to where she intended her life to lead. Paige is a strong, intelligent woman that has a passion for horses just as much as Colton. Colton has no doubt that Paige will find her way back to him and the life they always dreamed of. I love cowboys! Colton is 100% cowboy without a doubt! Ms. Rae hit the jackpot when she wrote his character.I am now waiting for the second book with baited breath! Ms. Rae has written herself a winner and I know that no one will be disappointed reading this book. It made me want to find my own cowboy and go live on a ranch!

    If I had to choose one word to describe Enduring Fate, it would be emotional. Not just for Paige with her injury and rehabilitation, but also for Colton with his overwhelming love for Paige. The two of them are just perfect together, and there were times while I was reading that I grew frustrated with Paige for not placing love above all else.I absolutely loved Colton's character. He is the type of man that any woman would be crazy not to want. He loves Paige unconditionally and with every bit of his heart, and always has. He is supportive, sweet and protective...and watching the two of them reconnect after Paige had moved away for a while after her injury-it was wonderful and gives you hope as you read.The writing flowed very well, keeping me intrigued and constantly engaged. And when I got to the end with that unexpected cliffhanger, I was shocked and dismayed...and I NEED the next book NOW! I have to know everything will be okay. 4.5 emotional stars for Enduring Fate, and this is one that I'll be frantically scanning my bookseller's website for the next installment to see how everything turns out.

    5 stars!Favorite quotes:"On a hushed whisper, my name left his lips, 'Paige...' His uneven tone was filled with longing, and his voice revealed the raw emotions I felt.""'I'm going to remind you that you are mine, Paige.' He softly tipped my chin up until I met his gaze, and he leaned closer. 'The kind of love we share never dims or fades.' He brushed his lips along mine. When my breath caught, he whispered, 'It's the kind of love that lasts forever.'""Nothing compared to the feeling of waking up with Paige tucked in the crook of my arm. I could lie here for hours just breathing in the sweet scent of her while listening to the soft sound of her breathing.""Paige, I love every freckle and mole on every inch of your delectable body, and your scars will be no different. In fact, I'll cherish them more because it is a reminder that I get to keep you.""Colton placed a loving kiss on the top of my head, the corner of my face, and then my cheek. 'Yes, sweet girl,' he whispered tenderly, brushing my hair off my forehead and out of my eyes..."

    You are my everything...This story has comedy, tragedy, a strong heroine, and a sexy cowboy - what more could you need! I stayed up way past by bedtime to finish this book early this morning!! March will bring spring (which I can't wait for) and the next book in the series -- Woo Hoo!! And now a bit about the story...After a tragic accident both Paige pulls away from Colton. She is worried that she will never have the same life she did before and she doesn't want to hold him back. Falling in love at 5 was hard for these too and risky - as they will do anything for the other... but will everything be enough?Favorite passages: - THIS TOO SHALL PASS - “The kind of love we share never dims or fades.” He brushed his lips along mine. When my breath caught, he whispered, “It’s the kind of love that lasts forever.” - “Knowing she would sacrifice her passion for a bump in the road would break my heart.” - “All I ask is that you step out of your boundaries and take a chance.”

    ERIN'S REVIEW:Great start to a new series! I love Alicia's writing style. I am always drawn in to the characters lives and held captive till the end. I love that she brought back some of her other characters to have a part in this book. I enjoy getting to read about what they are up to. ****SPOILERS****Paige and Colton have been in love for years. After a horrifying accident, Paige decides she needs time to herself to figure out where she is supposed to fit in now. After 3 months, Colton has had enough of waiting. Paige has to come home. He hatches a plan to get her to come home and visit her family. That plan also includes getting her to realize that she belongs at the ranch with him. Just as Paige is getting her groove back, tragedy strikes. Is their love strong enough to pull through?Cliffhanger!

    My first book of 2015 and I loved it, I do love my cowboys and Colton is definitely a cowboy!! I just wish I waited to read this because the next one doesn't come out until March and I don't know how I'm going to wait.Colton and Paige have grown up together on neighboring farms. They have been in love since they were little and have done everything together. After an accident where Paige gets hurt and nearly dies, she loses herself and leaves the farm to find herself. Three months later she still hasn't found herself and Colton wants her back. Can she find what she is looking for and after another serious/sabotage incident does Colton lose himself. Can't wait to find out in the second book!!

    Paige is staying with Ashlee to lick her wounds from the past. A stupid idea that caused her and those she loved a world of pain. She doesn't feel like she will ever be back to 100%. Colton has loved Paige since he was 5 years old. He wants her home and he wants her healed. He will stop and nothing to protect her. Their relationship doesn't have a problem with love. It has a problem with everything else that gets in the way.    I was interested right away in the story. It captured my attention and was over quickly. I loved Colton. I am frustrated with Paige and her ability to push him away. The ending was a surprise. I won't tell you in what way.

    I am a sucker for a hot cowboy. And Colton is a hot, hot, hot cowboy. Paige is strong feisty and determined but a little vulnerable due to her accident. These two are meant to be together. The drama and suspense is an amazing addition to an already wonderful romance.We are left with a cliff hanger but I like that. It has me excited and anticipating the next bookThis book ticks all my boxes. Well done Alicia!

    After Paige's accident she leaves everything she loves behind including Colton. She returns home for a visit, and falls right back into life with Colton. Loving him was never a problem it was the moving on and holding him back. Can she stay with Colton this time or will her plans have her leaving again!?
