BLESSED FATE blog tour review & giveaway

Colton Bradford never believed in love at first sight. And then, Rain Maxwell walked through his buddy's front door. He knew there was something special underneath the shy, guarded exterior and was determined to find out what it was.

The problem? Rain had devised her own set of life rules and “Never get involved with a band mate” was right near the top of that list. She allowed Colton into her heart as one of her closest friends, but pushed him away at the mention of anything more.

When tragedy strikes Rain's personal life, Colton is determined to be there for her in whatever way she'll allow. Will she finally open up to him and consider taking things to the next level? Will Colton's ways of trying to bury his feelings for Rain in the past ruin the possibility of a future for them?

One of the things I loved about this book was even though it's book two in the Blessed Tragedy series, you don't need to read the first book in order to enjoy this story.  I enjoyed the book enough that I will go back to read the first book however it's not something you need to read prior to this book.

In this story we meet Colton Bradford.  The second Maddie aka Rain Maxwell walks through that door it was love at first sight and Colt wanted to make her his own.  Rain has a set of rules that she follows the biggest of which is not never fall for a fellow band member so she tries her hardest to stay away from him lasting five years in the band all the while ignoring Colt's advances toward her and becoming best friends.  Colt over the years has grown to love Rain and will do anything to protect the girl he considers his best friend.  He hasn't had a relationship in the five years Rain has been a member of the band but being a man he's had temptations and he handles those temptations by making the mistake of taking their manager to bed or more than one occasion Tanya.  Tanya I hate right from the start she'll do anything to get her claws into Colt even taking pictures of him while they are together and when he's leaving her hotel room to use against him.

When tragedy strikes Rain she leans on the only family she feels she has, her band.  Colt sees his chance to be with Rain when her walls begin to crumble and she starts to let him in.  From here starts the battle for Rain to hold on to who she is and what she wants out of her life.  She finds out her family never hated her and that Colt truly is in love with him.  But her band mates fear that Rain will resort back to her drug abuse even though she's been clean for years now when she says that she'll do anything to make the pain go away.

This book was an excellent story about Rain learning to deal with her issues, Colt fighting for the woman he loves and his band, and dealing with an ex-lover who will do anything to make Colt hers.  I loved this book and cannot wait to read more books in the future by this author and am hoping to see possibly other books in the future about the other two band members Jon and Travis, I give this book 4 stars since it was a great story and well written!
