review || ENDLESS FATE { blog tour } by Alicia Rae

Self-Published | July 23, 2015 | Contemporary Romance
Fate for Love, book 3 


Colton Kingston is set on rebuilding his ranch to what it once was before his livelihood was diminished to a pile of ashes from a revengeful dark act of arson. His brothers at heart are there with him every step of the way to help pick up the pieces of the old and replace them with the new.

Paige Summers finds her inner strength to battle through her burdens of taking another person’s life. Standing in her rightful place by Colton’s side, she’s finally holding her own and living her dream of training horses.

Together, Colton and Paige have endured their fair share of obstacles and tragedies, and it has only made them stronger. With Hank Ulrich out of their lives, Colton is determined to make Paige, the girl he’s loved since he was five years old, his wife—forever.

But as one door closes, another opens, and a new danger is lurking in the shadows, threatening to stand in their way.

Will Colton and Paige’s love be endless, the way it was always meant to be? Or will a new devastation fall upon them and ruin their fate?

"By the time my heart even learned the true meaning of love, I'd already set eyes on you..."

I have to write reviews for the other two books of the series, but it's this one that's being toured with today, so it's this one that will be written first!

This is a series that you must read all of the books -- it's a trilogy that grows off the previous story (granted, some of the 'important parts' of BOUNDLESS FATE are re-told through flashback, ie: a scene that was told in Colton's POV in BF, we get to see through Paige's recollection). I love these types of trilogies because I hate putting my characters away; I like to see them grow and feel that with more books, you get to see a true romance blossom -- a romance that is similar to one you would see in every day life.

Granted, there are things that Colton and Paige go through that aren't your typical day-to-day thing, but... it helps keep the reader interested!

"I was just five years old when you reached in and touched my soul, forever leaving your imprint..."

Paige is having a hard time coming to terms with the acts she's had to do. She harbors a lot of guilt -- not necessarily because she had to kill someone, but because she fears what people will think of her. She hides out at home and when Colton brings her out, she tries to hide behind her sunglasses (props to Colton for not letting her -- not that he forces the issue, but he certainly plays his hand in a calm, gentle manner). Colton would do anything to keep her from caving in on herself. It hurts him to watch her hurting, knowing that there isn't much more he can do than hold her through the night.

"Tell me what to do." Panic filled his voice. "Tell me how I can help you move past this. I will do anything to get rid of that look in those beautiful eyes I love so much." --Colton

When not dealing with pain and soul-breaking, Colton and Paige's relationship is as strong as ever, if not stronger. Their playful banter is still there -- and I certainly am a sucker for playful banter.

"You captured my heart and weaved it with yours. Now, it can only beat with yours."

We get to end the story of Paige and Colton with more twists and turns to the roller coaster they're on, but they have a huge support system. Their Lake Tahoe "family" is with them through so much of it and where Paige, once upon a time, ran away to deal with her problems, she's learned to rely on Colton more -- he doesn't judge her, he only loves her.

"I got you, Paige, always." --Colton

Their love story has been so much fun to witness. A lot of drama, sure, but in the end these two were always meant for one another, and stopped at nothing to get what they truly wanted out of life -- one another.

"You are my every dream come true and so much more." --Paige
