Fate as defined by the Oxford dictionary is the development of events outside of a person’s control.  Do you believe in fate or do you believe we create our own destiny?

Personally, I believe some events in our lives are pre-destined, and some are created by the choices we make. However, there are persons who believe every event in their lives are pre-destined and those who believe we create our own destiny. Ty Braden was one such person.

What the story is about.
Ty Braden and Aiyla Bell met and fell in love in Saint-Luc after spending five days and four nights together.  Ty wanting to continue his newfound feelings invited Aiyla to accompany on his next assignment. However, daunted by his reputation of being a player she refused his request, stating that if they were meant to be together, then fate will re-unite them.  They agreed not to exchange contact information, not to track each other down and leave their future in the hands of fate.
Months later as fate would have it, they were re-united and old feelings re-ignited. However, when Aiyla received devastating life changing news, their love faced the greatest test.

The Story
Thrill of Love tells the story of a couple whose love was tested beyond measure. Not only was it sweet and sensual it was heartfelt and sincere.  It is a beautifully written story, which reminded me of the strength of true love and the importance of family. Although it predictable, it still had the power to tug on my heartstrings.

Characters
Aiyla is a ski instructor and photographer. She is competitive and dislikes depending on others. She is strong, self-reliant, and resourceful. I admired her courage in the face of adversity.

Ty is adventurous, determined, caring, honest and patient. He was a player, but after spending time with Aiyla no other woman held his interest.

As a couple, they were quite inspiring.  On their own, they were strong, but together they made a formidable team.  I loved them as individuals and as a couple.  I loved how they brought out the best in each other. Being with Ty made Aiyla recognise that relying on those you love was not a sign of weakness and she helped him to see the beauty of falling love.

Supporting Characters
It was great catching up with characters from the previous books.  The theme of family and friendships for which Ms. Foster is known for was the centre of the story. I loved how Ty’s family and friends rallied around him and Aiyla during the difficult times. The scenes depicted during these moments were heart-warming

The Romance
I never imagined I could be jealous of a book couple but Ty and Aiyla’s relationship was one to envy. I must admit I had a hard time with them falling in love so quickly, but watching their post reunion interaction convinced me that what they shared was genuine.

Conclusion/Recommendation
Thrill of Love delivered a heart-warming and tear jerking read. Although is the sixth book in the Bradens at Peaceful Harbor series it can be read as a stand-alone. However, if you are like me you will want to grab the other books in the series.

Fall in love with Ty Braden and Aiyla Bell in this epic love story. Fate brings them together, but will tragedy tear them apart?

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.

THRILL OF LOVE is part of the Love in Bloom series. While this can be read as a stand-alone novel, for even more reading enjoyment you may want to read the entire Love in Bloom series in series order.

Whisper of Love Book (Love in Bloom, The Bradens of Peaceful Harbor #5)

Tempest Braden adores her family and her small hometown, but sometimes too much of a good thing can be confining. At almost thirty, having watched most of her siblings find true love, she’s anxious to experience her own happily ever after, and the move to Pleasant Hill, Maryland, is just the change she needs. When she rents a room from ruggedly handsome, and closed-off, artist Nash Morgan and his adorable son, Phillip, she thinks she’s found a little slice of heaven on the outskirts of town, where she can concentrate on building her business. That is, if she can ignore the undeniable heat between her and the sinfully hot single father.



When Nash bought his farmette, he had one goal in mind—to provide a loving, stable home for his son. He never imagined he’d be raising Phillip alone, or renting out a room to keep their heads above water. Then again, he never imagined losing his brother, or spending two years sailing around the world with parents who seemed to forget one son was still alive.




Sparks fly from the moment Tempest moves in, and her positive energy and inquisitive nature brings new life into Nash and Phillip’s quiet, confined world. For the first time in years, Nash wants to let a woman into his world, but while his loss made him stronger, that strength came at a price, leaving him walled off and wary of opening his heart again.
