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.

                                                     

Review :

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

This branch of Bradens seems to have stories that seem simple at first, but somehow end up being very deep.

Ty and Aiyla met months ago in Switzerland and fell in love for each other in the span of five days. Ty's reputation as a womanizer made Aiyla reluctant to follow him as he wanted on his next adventure and said that if they were meant to be they would find each other again. And once they did Ty would do anything to keep her with him forever. I am happy to say that Ty didn't sleep with anyone on the time they were separated and he was so focused on winning Aiyla and loving her that I wouldn't have believed that he was indeed a womanizer if he didn't say so himself. Aiyla doesn't make it easy on Ty, but in the end their story is great.

We got to see the whole Braden family again and even I felt loved. They are an amazing family. Pretty much everyone appears in this book, bit it feels natural and not crowded. I hope Speed and Trixie will get a book. Each or together, I don't care as long as they get a book. I loved them both.


Excerpt: 

An announcement sounded with a twenty-minute prerace warning. She zipped up her equipment bags, and as she started to hoist them over her shoulder, Ty took them from her hands.
“I can carry those,” she said as he slung them easily over his back.
“Call it a ‘thank you’ instead of a ‘reward’ for retrieving your helmet,” he said, ignoring what she’d said. “Something simple, like a walk after the race?”
The first leg of the race was a thirty-mile bike ride, the last eight miles were through the mountains, ending at a site where their equipment would be left for them to make camp.
When she didn’t answer right away, he said, “Come on, Aiyla. We took lots of walks in Saint-Luc, and I seem to remember your hand fitting perfectly in mine and your lips…” He arched a brow.
A nervous laugh slipped out before she could stop it. Their lips fit together, all right, even more perfectly than their hands, and a walk sounded wonderful. But she needed time to think. As he set her bags by the transportation trucks and they headed for the bikes, she asked, “Who’s Johnny Jackass?”
Ty nodded at two guys standing with a group of women. “Johnny Jackson, one of the Jackson brothers. They stop at nothing to bring down their competition. Stealing equipment is tame for those cretins.”
“This is a race for charity, not the Olympics. Besides, I’m a woman, not even in their league of competition.” There were three groups of winners: men, women, and couples. She knew Ty was a fierce, and honest, competitor. If the articles and online gossip were true, he was a dichotomy of morals when it came to sports competitions versus his personal life, with one similarity—he always achieved his goals. The Mad Prix was probably like just another woman for him to conquer.
What does that make me?
