5 ‘Fortuitous LOVE’ Stars

All the feels! All the stars! All the Faith, Hope and LOVE!

Fortuity is an amazingly emotional and heartfelt journey! We could truly feel how close to Rochelle Paige’s heart this story is, considering the depth of Faith’s character. This is her story, from the horrible past, her journey and her discovery that Fate really works in the most complex and Fortuitous of ways, specially when it comes to Love (every single type in the spectrum)!

That was the day my luck changed. S

Fortuity is an amazing read. It's a heart string pulling, emotional read. Dillon and Faith are great characters that have gone through some tough times. At points I wanted to just crawl into the pages and give them a hug. Faith had a rough childhood and bad luck seemed to always find her. She is college now and things are looking up. She meets Dillon. Dillon had a much different childhood then Faith. He does have some demons to beat too though. These to have great chemistry. Their relationship s ...more

“That was the day my luck changed. Somehow, a miracle happened. I was given a second chance. One I promised myself I wouldn’t waste.”

Fortuity is book one in the Fortuity duet by Rochelle Paige and is an emotionally charged, heart wrenching and soul searching story about second chances, faith, hope, love and the monumental effect they can have on just one person. This is my first book by Rochelle Paige and I’m both looking forward to and now dreading how this duet will end and the jou

The Characters & Chemistry.

From the day Faith was born the cards were stacked against. Her life wasn’t rosy but at twelve it took a turn for the worse. At the age of fifteen she was up the shite creek without a paddle. She needed a new kidney. Faith has had some seriously bad luck.

I really like Faith she made the best out of all of the cards that she’d been dealt. She is strong, resilient, is trying to pay her second chance forward, studying to help others in t

Very likable heroine.
He was ok.
I saw this twist coming from the very beginning.
Nevertheless cute read.
Wow! This story! There are too many emotions and not enough words to explain how the first of this duet made me feel.

Faith had an awful, neglected childhood that led to a catastrophic moment. What follows wasn’t much better and led to another moment that soon became the catalyst to one of the biggest challenges a person can face. As she comes out on the other side with a determination to succeed at the things she can control in her life, she begins to pay it forward in any way she can, reaching
Mindy Lou's Book Review
Fortuity is a story that is full of heart and soul. You can't help but be touched by the path Faith has had to walk since she was a child. One of my favorite things to read about is a person who overcomes all the odds and succeeds in life. Faith's story is just that but she hasn't reached her happily ever after just yet.

This first book in the duet shows us the path Faith has had lead since she was a child. The struggle she constantly faced and had to overcome. It is one that will truly pull on

**After reading**

This is the first in a duet by Rochelle Paige about a young foster girl named Faith and the man she meets, basically, because of her transplant and all that led up to her being in college. It was pretty predictable as far as this book goes in that (view spoiler) but so much more happens in the second book that was quite a surprise.

This was really a sweet romance. I enjoyed the story but wasn't wowed by it. However, still a good b

Stupid ass book with stupid ass characters.

Plot: virgin heroine who is a foster kid, mum died from drug abuse, shitty life, paved her way with her education and working hard. Got ill, and had a kidney transplant at 18. Recovered, now 21.

A senior at college in her year. Privileged typical white boy hot jock hero. Gambles because he's sad. Lost his twin 3 years ago in a car accident who donated his organs. What do we think happens at the end that she finds out which makes her start crying making
It's a great read but with a cliffhanger. Both H and h had a sad past that they didn't open to anyone; however, they met each other through H's mom. H was totally a sweetheart. Just wish there's more build-up between H and h without cliffhanger. I couldn't image how the story will develop.The storyline seemed can be ended within one book. ...more

Faith, from a young age, learned the irony of her name. She didn't have any while being raised by an eighteen-year-old drug addicted single mom. Nor after learning said mom had no idea who her father was. Or as her mom became even more controlled by drugs, so much so to where Faith was left home alone, then subjected to numerous "uncles" as the men began coming to the house, leading Faith to find a place to hide, and certainly not when at age twelve she discovered her mom dead from an overdose.

This was a new author for me and I thought I'd give it a whirl. I was also endeared by how personal some of the subject matter was to the author. I found it very sappy, very sweet and full of the feel sorry for the heroine tropes that get on my nerves. As the reader I was constantly reminded that she was a foster kid...I get it, I read it in the first few pages of the book. It would have been a good change of pace after reading some of my more gritty books so maybe I'll revisit this aut

This story was so much more than I've bargained for. It's a harrowing, tragic but also incredibly beautiful and inspiring tale about loss, survival and second chances. Fortuity is indisputably Rochelle Paige's best work yet. I had tears in my eyes after reading the author's foreword and finding out what inspired her to write this book. You can literally feel that she poured her heart into this story and how much effort she put into creating a gripping plot and intriguing and multi-layered charac ...more

I loved this story so much <3 This was such an emotional and beautiful story between Dillon and Faith, who both have been through a lot of heartbreaking moments in their young age...

Faith is a survivor, I admired her character so much. She's strong yet at the same time sometimes vulnerable. She's sweet too with hints of sass mixed with her innocence, which I think all of this drew Dillon to her. He was determined to get to know her and when he realized that she wasn't like other girls, he was de

I’m a shaking mess. This book is everything. There is absolutely no way I have adequate words to say how amazing this story is. It’s so much more than just a simple love story. It’s a story of loss, heartache, love and most of all FAITH. Having faith and determination to overcome and be the odds, to come out on the other side stronger. Dillion’s love for Faith is so much big then the pages of their book. And you feel every single one of the emotions with the! I CAN NOT WAIT UNTIL MAY 8th!!!!!!!! ...more

This is a beautiful and emotional story written by Rochelle Paige. I thought this was going to be a light and sweet read but not the case, this was such a deep read, full of emotions and feels. Fortuity takes the reader on this emotional journey, one that will have you feeling the main characters pain and heartbreak. Ms. Paige really has outdone herself with this book and her characters, especially Faith- she takes the reader on a journey with Faith’s character. This is really Faith’s story-the ...more

Wow talk about a book with all the feels!! This story had so many emotions from beginning to end. My heart was all over the place with this story.

Faith had the worse upbringing and extremely difficult childhood. She grew up in the system and was a loner but that didn’t stop her from wanting to become something in life. Then things went left for her and it was a terrible moment for her. It was a very struggling and desperate moment for her. Then after so much heartache and patience things started

I was very irritated when I started this book. For the 2nd time in a row a review gave me the spoiler on the twist. ugh. My fault. This is my first book from this author. I am glad I have book 2 ready and that I have some more books on my kindle from this author. I love Faith and Dillion.
I barely finished it.

MCs don't meet until 40%. Other parts are about illness and struggle. A lot of explanations and inner dialogue. I got bored.

Where to even begin on this Duet!!!! First of all, I don’t know how I missed this book when it originally came out but man it was amazing!!!

Faith had a rough start at life and it only got worse from there. Being born to a young mom who didn’t know how to be a mom to only being left behind. At the age of twelve, Faith is placed in foster care where she never found her place. At the young age of seventeen, she develops a disease from not getting proper treatment that is now shutting down

An interesting start to an emotional college romance -- and you'll be surprised that the male lead, Dillon Montgomery is not a football star awaiting the NFL draft! Nope, there's an issue of casino gambling though. Some major complications are ahead -- but we're not faced with imminent death -- yet! The heroine is a victim of a lifetime of loneliness, sadness, and troubled waters. But she's a fighter and a fascinating young woman -- a girl named Faith. Yes, her name will come full circle. And Di ...more

This was an absolutely beautiful story and I cannot wait to see what the next book entails.

Faith has had a hard life. She has been through more than any child should have to. She receives a gift that gives her hope but because of her past she is always waiting for the other shoe to drop.

Dillon is the average rich kid that did whatever he wanted pretty much until a terrible incident happens to him. Not knowing how to cope, he does things his parents don’t approve of. He doesn’t let anyone in.

It's not everyday that you come across a book that can touch you so deeply. Fortuity did that and more! This was such an emotional and touching story. The challenges and hurdles both Dillon and Faith have conquered in their lives are a true inspiration to others that you can overcome anything. I absolutely loved both of them and can't wait to read the rest of their story in Serenity! ...more
My cold soul would be super annoyed ar this book. Just can’t relate to someone (heroine)who would cry over the “twist”. Silly, if it wasn’t yours, it would be someone else’s. 😴🙄

I absolutely loved this book. I felt so sorry for Faith. The way she got treated with her mom and then at her foster home. She finally gets a second chance and she is not letting anything get in her way. She was going to make a difference in the world and that she did. She helped so many kids get ready for college that thought wouldn't make it. She really started living when she met Dillion. The love story between them is amazing. They are there for one another. I loved the relationship that she ...more

Beautiful is what this book is, absolutely beautiful. It was so, so damn good that I think it deserves so many, many stars. All the feels. I am so glad that Rochelle Paige wrote this book. I have always been a huge fan of hers, but this book was just everything. My absolute favorite book of hers, such a treat to get to read. These two needed each other in a way that very few people could possibly understand and their love was like reading two souls joining together, it really was beautiful.

3.5 stars. Fortuity was a pretty good, sweet book. This is Dillon and Faith's story. Faith is an orphan whose single mother died of a drug overdose, leaving her in foster care for years. When careless treatment by her foster parents leads to a medical issue, Faith's life is put in danger and she is forced to undergo a kidney transplant. Now, she is finally getting her life on track.
