Fortuity, the first in the all-new, emotional and romantic Fortuity Duet by Rochelle Paige, is available NOW!
The only kinds of luck I knew were bad and worse…until my life hung in the balance. I finally caught a break in the form of a second chance.
I vowed not to let it go to waste.
To make a difference.
But I didn’t start really living until I met him.
My complete opposite—except for our matching tortured souls.
I couldn’t resist him for long.
How could I when his smallest touch made my heart race?
When it felt like we were destined to be together.
But sometimes luck and sorrow are intertwined…
Dillon twisted his neck and flashed me an apologetic grin over his shoulder. Unwanted butterflies swirled in my belly, and I quickly yanked my hands away from his shoulders and took a step backwards. His eyes flashed with male satisfaction and his grin grew wider. Determined to ignore the impact he had on me, I shifted my focus to the students. “Your test date is coming fast, so you’ll need to squeeze in as much extra study time as you can without neglecting your regular coursework. Maybe set aside some time during Thanksgiving break when you don’t have as much homework.”
“Ugh. Studying over break sucks,” one of the girls complained.
“Yeah, but you guys are in the homestretch. This test score is one of the last things you need to get into college. Trust me, it’ll be worth the extra effort.”
“I guess if you could get into college while recovering from a transplant, then the least I can do is a little bit of studying over a holiday break that isn’t even that big of a deal since I don’t have a family to celebrate it with anyway.”
The other kids nodded in agreement, and I snuck a peek at Dillon while everyone finished packing up. His brown eyes were wide with shock. I quickly looked away before he could ask me anything, and focused on saying my goodbyes as the kids all headed out. We both kept quiet—for which I was incredibly grateful—as Dillon helped me clean up the room. When we were back on the road, I turned to him and asked, “Were you really teaching my kids how to count cards?”
His lips tilted up at the edges. “Maybe just a little.”
“It’s a good thing none of them have any money to gamble or else they might learn to enjoy blackjack as much as you do.” His lip tilt turned into a full-fledged grin, and I glared at him. “I don’t know why you’re grinning at me! Look at what your affinity for gambling got you.”
“What?” He pointed at his face. “The black eye?”
“Yeah, for starters.”
His grin grew into a blinding smile. “It was worth it.”
“Because it’s the reason I met you.”
Shit. Those damn butterflies took flight in my stomach again

3.5 luck can be on your side stars.
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 the foster care system. Yet with all the good she is doing, she is forgetting to live.
Dillion is the complete opposite of Faith. He comes from a loving family, although he suffered great loss he had a support system. But his gambling has gotten out of control. He works with Faith and the foster kids to appease his parents. I like Dillion as well. I felt his struggles.
The chemistry of these two is hard to describe if I’m being honest. Snap your fingers and they were together, yes they dated and it was made aware that it was over a couple of weeks but it all felt so rushed.
The Writing, Plot & Pace.
The writing here is really good and the author has done an exceptional job. You can tell that this book means a lot to the author. The plot is interesting and although this has been done before the author adds her own touches to it without making it lacklustre. I was hoping that the plot would have an unknown twist to it but alas that wasn’t the case. The pace of the book was impeccable at the beginning but the book could have been longer by concentrating on their relationship a bit more but this is just my opinion.
This is a hard review to write as to on a personal level didn’t make me emotionally burst. It would gradually build and when that bang was meant to happen it would stall.
Be aware for there is a cliffhanger here.
