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.

I'm a fan of Melissa Foster.  I know when I pick up her books I'm in for a sweet, sexy story.  This book was sweet, sexy and emotional.

I love a good second chance romance.  It's one of my favorite tropes.  Figuring out WHY the pair didn't work initially and seeing if they can overcome their obstacles is always enjoyable to me.  I liked watching Ty and Aiyla come back together.

I truly felt for Aiyla in this book.  She has such a battle and stays so true to herself and so strong.  She's very admirable.  

Ty? Ty is exactly the kind of hero I expect from this author.  Once he's "in" the relationship, he's all in.  He was sweet, supportive and sexy.  You can't go wrong with that!

There's a connection for these two and I enjoyed seeing them work their way back to one another.  The sex between them was hot for sure but I enjoyed seeing them connect just as much outside of the bedroom.  It made them a little more realistic.

The writing in this book was good.  The story was a little predictable but it was still sweet.  This is part of a series but can be easily read as a standalone.  Overall I enjoyed the title and would recommend it.
