*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

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.

Actual Rating 3.5

Colton 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 give

Good solid story about a couple trying to find their way back to each other after tragedy strikes. Well developed characters, some intriguing suspense and sweet steamy sex round this one out. Looking forward to reading the next one in the series.

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.

I 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 t

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.

“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.”

Enduring Fate is a novel that will stay with you for years. It's true love, friendship, heartache, loss, and the feeling of home all brought together in a story, that will have you shedding a few tears by the time you read the last sentence.

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.

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!

This 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

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 ac

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.

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 o

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.'"

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 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 book
