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.

4.5 Star review of Thrill Of Love (The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor, MD #6)by Melissa Foster Do you believe in fate? That what is meant to be, will be? Ty Braden and Aiyla Bell, met and became attracted to each other in Saint-Luc. However, although Ty asked Aiyla to go with him on his next adventure, she refused and asked him not to try and find or contact her. Aiyla believes in fate, but Ty does not. Fast forward several months and Ty and Aiyla are both competing in a 5 day wilderness event which absolutely thrills them both, you see both have regretted the parting so many months before and have had many “what is” moments since. Ty has a reputation with the ladies a this is the reason that Aiyla, refused to follow her heart in Saint-Luc, however now that they have met again, both decide to put their cards on the table and see where their attraction goes. Ty is certain that in her he has found “the one” Ty is definitely a hot, possessive, determined alpha who knows who he wants and is out to succeed. I really loved Aiyla, such a strong and feisty woman. In fact I really liked the characters of Ty and Aiyla, separately and together. Melissa Foster captured my attention with this well written story that will tug at your heart. Be prepared though to shed tears as the path to Ty and Aiyla’s happily ever after is a roller coaster of emotions, fear, love,courage and determination to overcome

This is one of the most beautiful stories I have read by Melissa Foster, Aiyla is a true fighter, a special, unique and very credible character . It is a passionate romance with very moving moments about fate and second chance love story. In Switzerland Aiyla was madly in love with Ty but his reputation as a player did not give her security. They decided to let fate decide and it has made them meet again. Ty Braden is a famous mountaineer and photographer and has to accompany Ayila during her five-day climb on the Colorado Mountains for a charity event. Will Ty win Aiyla's confidence? I loved each page of this novel, the author has created a beautiful and heartwarming story. It's completely engaging, a great plot, very well written and with great characters. Another story of Melissa Foster highly recommended

Ain’t no mountain high enough… To keep Ty Braden from getting to Aiyla Bell, the love of his life. After five glorious days together, they parted ways. Aiyla was afraid of Ty’s reputation and was too scared to ask him about it. Ty just wanted to respect her wishes even though the thought of never seeing her again broke his heart. Well, lucky for him, them, Fate intervened as Aiyla’d predicted and brought them together again. What a wonderful union. A wonderful couple. Foster has a way of explaining a couple’s history that’s so believable that by chapter 2 I felt like I’d been a part of their relationship for years. Even though Aiyla still had some reservations, they picked up right where they’d left off. She was finally able to bring up what’d been bothering her and they cleared the air. She wasn’t naive, but trusting, and Ty’s honesty and determination to hold on to her was straight up Braden. He’s now a part of my book boyfriend harem. Oh, but as we know, things can’t always be carefree, fun, and easy. The situation they found themselves in was totally new when it comes to Foster love, and I ached for them. I cried for them. But of course, it was handled beautifully. Nothing was fixed easily and the reality of it all will hit home for many readers. I don’t want to spoil anything, but the loyalty, determination, support, and love was pure and heartwarming. Foster has taken a sensitive subject and surrounded it with enough love to dull the pain and make success the only option. Just further proof of her expertise.

I am never disappointed with Melissa Foster's books. She knows just how to pull you in and hook you. Both Ty and Aiyla are photographers who meet and have a wild five day adventure. When it ends Ty invites Aiyla to join him but Aiyla was not about to turn her world upside to take off with a man. Ty has a horrible reputation of having girls at his beck and call so Aiyla was not wanting to be his next conquest. They are torn apart and go through a lot emotionally. When they are brought back together they both know they don't want to lose one another. This story really tugged at heart strings. It was sweet and so sexy but sad at times as well. Melissa really knows how to throw the emotions in her books. I loved it!

Thrill of Love is the brand new Braden clan story and takes us ona roller coaster ride as Ty Braden, world renowned mountain climber and nature photographer, finds true love in Aiyla, a ski instructor and fellow photographer. I had been looking forward to Ty's story and I was not disappointed. I loved the emotional play, heartfelt romance and the real-life like difficulties they faced in the path to their happily-ever-after. Melissa's narration is fluid and engaging and lovely as usual. She has a true gift of getting the readers engrossed in her stories. The only thing that had me a little irritated and that has left me skipping scenes from the past several books by Melissa are the sex scenes which seem a little too many to me and in my opinion, can be done without. All in all, Thrill of Love is an entertaining and enjoyable romance and one I give 4 stars out of 5. Recommended to all romance lovers above the age of eighteen, I look forward to reading more from Melissa Foster in the future.

What happened when fate,destiny turned into tragedy? Can you survived when that happened to your loved-one? I know Ty and Aiyla did. Their love story is so much fun to read. Aside from hotness overload though the crisp of autumn is in the corner, Ty and Aiyla will keep your flames alive. I super loved the setting of this book. The mountains with fresh air plus you get the amazing views surrounded you is my kind of life. I could click so many photos. Ty and Aiyla's upbringings are way different from each other but both family oriented which I adore them both. This book is not only full of romance but laughter as well and most of all tear-jerker scenes. It will break your heart. Do you believe in fate or destiny? I know I am. If you were meant to be, you will be despite the distance. Thrill of Love is another book of Ms. Melissa Foster that I enjoyed reading.

"Let's leave it up to fate." A scary decision when the little bit of time spent with someone has been a breath of fresh air, and everything you've never imagined before. Aiyla believes that fate will bring Ty back to her. But what of his reputation? It's hard to imagine that a bad boy reputation could ruin the best thing he's never had. Fate has brought Aiyla and Ty back together and they enjoy their time in their own little world, but now it's time to make the hard decision. Once again Melissa Foster does not disappoint with this tale and I will always continue to get lost her literary world.  *An advance copy of this book was provided to me for review purposes only, all opinions expressed are my own*

This was such a hot and steamy book! I loved how Ty and Aiyla were drawn to each other right from the start. They have so many things in common that you just knew they were meant for one another. I absolutely loved how their chemistry was off the charts. It's definitely one of those books where you will find yourself fanning your hand to your face more than once. ;) 'Honestly that is one of the reasons I love Melissa Foster's books. Even though there is lots of loving this is not a book with excess of sweetness. There are twists that I did not see coming which kept me intrigued! Another great read by this amazing author! Even though this is book six in the series, it's a great stand alone read.

I always love Melissa Foster books, always for different reasons, some more then others, but they all have a way of pulling you into their world, and that's why I read, to escape reality for a while. Ty and Aiyla's story stuck with me and just won't let go. I love the absolute confidence Ty has in his love for Aiyla, and his turn around in his belief in fate. I love the thought that love can change your whole world, and that's what happens for Ty. Aiyla hasn't been as lucky in the fate department, but she hasn't let anything hold her back. I love that both Ty and Aiyla have their own strength and don't need to rely on the other, that's what makes it so much more powerful when they do. I also can't get past how much I love the Braden family, they are the huge loving family this only child always dreamed of! The Braden family gives me this warm cozy feeling, like wrapping up in your favorite blanket on a cold night. I wasn't ready to let this story go, I wanted so much more! #MSBB

So I'm writing this review through tears! Why? Because Thrill of Love is such a beautiful, wonderful, and amazing love story, so much so, that I have yet another Melissa Foster book hangover, and I doubt this will be one I will ever get over. Thrill of Love is actually Ty Braden's story, and it a great tale of fate, perseverance, determination, and changing everything, not because its required of you, but because you want to give everything to the one person you love. And because of that, it is SO hard for me to give you a glimpse into Ty and Aiyla's story, so I'm not even going to try. The story is outstanding, the character's are amazing; seriously, there was not one thing about Ty and Aiyla's character's THAT I did not love, but I honestly cannot be the only on that prays that Trixie and Jon get together!!! Thrill of Love is definitely a paperback edition buy for me, because, it will honestly rock your world! I give Thrill of Love 5 stars!

Thrill of Love is the 6th book in The Bradens at Peaceful Harbor, MD series by Melissa Foster. Ty Braden is a famous mountain climber and photographer. Aiyla Bell is also a photographer and a ski instructor. She and Ty had a beautiful romantic interlude and separated after it leaving fate to decide if they would be together in the future. Fate was obviously in their favour because only months later they find themselves at the same charity event. A 5-day wilderness event where sponsored participants take part in cycling, rowing, mountain climbing and running. It doesn't take long for our couple to get back together and accept that they are meant to be together. Their love for each other is so strong, their 5 days together were bliss, but the following days are rocked by bad news. Will their relationship survive it? This book was the ultimate in romance, the perfect couple, their perfect love. When bad news hit I thought for a moment there might be a time when there was too much strain on the relationship. It would have made the book a little more interesting. Instead, it was a constant love fest which although was sweet to read was just a little too perfect for my liking. Yes, it's wonderful to be with your soul mate, it just doesn't make for a very exciting story. That said, the story was very well written with beautiful descriptions of places that our couple visit or have visited. The author obviously did a lot of research into the 'tragedy' of the story, and it showed. The emotional moments were beautiful and I admit did bring a tear to my eyes. Then, of course, there are the steamy passionate moments our couple share, they were sizzling, yet so much more than just sex. Although this book was too sweet for me, the writing alone deserves the rating I gave it! If you like your books to be the absolute in feel good, even with some highly emotional moments, then this is the perfect book for you. I voluntarily reviewed and advanced readers' copy of this book.

I only want to say is I wish a man was this devoted to loving and wanting me the way Ty wants Aiyla! Ty knows what he wants and is confident about it. Aiyla is strong and sure about herself but when it comes to romance and relationships she is more the run for the hills type. This book almost had an insta love over before it started kinda book feel... UNTIL. Then it took off! The beginning was so saccharine sweet. I think Ty just wanted to make sure she knew he meant his feelings but wow was it syrupy. I gotta tell you though I really loved how Aiyla had a mind of her own and didn't just fall into anything. She was decisive and had so much strength. I love a strong heroine. But another trait she had was being able to be vulnerable. She wasn't good at it, but she could be. Be ready for an emotional read that will leave you smiling at the end.

Ty and Aiyla prove that two people don't have to be opposites to be attracted to one another. They are a match made in heaven with their similarities. They are both passionate about their families as well as their careers. After their first passionate week together, Aiyla isn't ready to give up the life she's built (and who can blame her??!) to follow Ty. They part without any means for contacting each other. As fate would have it, they get another chance at a love together.  Being such a fanatic about Melissa's books, I anxiously await each new one. She warned that this one would turn us into full-fledged emotional messes and WOW! I did the complete girly breakdown with this book.  Their struggles and obstacles would have destroyed any other couple but this pair is super powerful. My favorite part is how close-knit the Braden family is. It could seem quite overwhelming to many people but it gives me that sweet butterfly feeling. This book definitely deserves FIVE stars for the thrill ride that it takes you on! I received this book through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

Melissa Foster man can she write! Just finished Thrill of love and I'm in awe! This book was so full of emotions and love. I couldn't put it down. I was smiling and crying. The end was so powerful and emotional I was in tears reading the last couple chapters and I am so glad it had a happy ending! Aiyla and Ty love was fates way of showing everyone it knew what it was doing. They couldn't be more perfect together and they were so supportive of each other, I love that. They were put in a hard situation and had to fight to win and make it through it all which they did! This is the ultimate dream love and goal all people want and look for! Such a amazing story and an awesome writer. This is a definite must read! So pick it up today.

Oh My! How many emotions can we cover in one book?  Let's see...Exciting, Poignant, Passionate, Sensitive, Thrilling and Heartwarming! I also must add that there is part tht brings tears! Foster takes us on an up and down relationship that is fraught with real life. The romance of  Ty and Aiyla is indeed an epic love story. This story is not just about love, but the strength to push through the bad that life throws at us. Thanks Melissa for one of the best reads I have had.

With her powerful voice, Melissa Foster brings us her most emotional book yet! Fate brought them together, but their hearts easily attached and led them to the deep love they can’t imagine letting slip through their fingers. They might start out casual without plans of a future in tact, but each day brings more hope that it is their destiny to share a forever … until horrifying news tears through their dreams and make them have to decide how to soldier through. It’s gut wrenchingly real and beautifully written! Mountain climber and photographer Ty Braden has never been one for settling down and believing in more than living for the moment, but when he happens upon a gorgeous woman that he spends five days with in Saint-Luc, he gives his heart away without a second thought. She takes his breath away and he can’t imagine life without her, but his reputation precedes him and scares her away. Ski instructor and photographer Aiyla Bell can’t believe it when she runs into Ty again at a five day charity wilderness event! She hasn’t been able to forget about him since their time together a few months ago, but since she knew his reputation as a player, she was leery of trusting him. Now that he’s in front of her again and the same old feelings are burning strong, she can’t deny him again. This has to be real if fate has brought them together twice and they are both waiting for the other to complete them. They decide to when it’s time to pack up and leave that they have to share their lives … but when reality comes crashing in on them faster than they ever expected, they are going to have to dig deep to find the strength to lean on each other.

Thrill of Love by Melissa Foster Do you believe in Fate? When the universe wills something to happen, fate is said to be involved. When Ty and Aiyla find each other again after five months, they both knew that destiny was at work. Ty Braden, a freelance photographer travels the world, taking photo after photo, being carefree. When he meets Aiyla, all his bachelor ways changed in the five days that they spent together in Saint-Luc. Fast forward 5 months and they are together again at a charity race together, competing for a good cause. Not only are they both athletic, photographers, and love to travel, they both have a soft spot for sleeping under the stars, surrounded by nature. Ty knew that meeting her again was fate. He wasn’t going to let her get away again, so he confessed his feelings almost immediately after they reunited. For five days, they rekindled their feelings while competing for charity. However, during the first days of the competition, a pain in Aiyla’s leg consumed her. Ty wasn’t going to have it. He took care of her, made sure she rested it as much as possible, and when she couldn’t make it to the finish line, he carried her. By the time the five days were over, the two knew it was meant to be and they never wanted to be apart again. But the pain in her leg was an overshadow to their future and next steps. Ty insisted on a visit to the doctor where they learned she has cancer. Thankfully, they find their love is even stronger than they thought. This is one of my favorite books by Melissa Foster. Not only does it have a foreshadow of tragedy, it is full of romance and fun characters. Making this even better is the love of family, friends and memories of loved ones lost.

A passionate emotional love story! Thrill of Love is an emotional, sweet and romantic adventure that tells the story of Ty and Aiyla. You get a little of everything in this book – passion, romance, conflict, heartaches and support. There are moments in this story that will have you aching for the pain and heartaches that Aiyla has gone through in her past and now. To make the choices that Aiyla did was heartbreaking yet it showed what a strong person she is. I can’t imagine going through what she does. It was good to see the way that Ty helped her through the different events of the race putting aside the “win”. I thought the ending of the race put a really nice touch to the story. It was heartwarming to see that when Aiyla thought she was “alone” that she had a big group of support to keep her positive and life her spirits. Thrill of Love was a story that will pull at your heartstrings while leaving you with a happy ending. Melissa Foster does a wonderful job of weaving romance and heartache that ends with the happy-ending that we come to expect. I know when I see her name on a book that it will be an entertaining and enjoyable book that I won’t be able to put down. Melissa Foster definitely has a gift for writing spectacular stories! I have not been disappointed with a book yet! Definitely an author that you will want to keep on the top of your go-to list. If you enjoy reading a passionate romance, then you will thoroughly enjoy this book and the series. A truly captivating, emotional and heartwarming read.

A 5 star start to a new series for me! I have a habit of not reading the synopsis that is provided when I am offered a book to review. That is what I did with this one. I just saw romance with very little heat and requested it. When I began reading I was immediately drawn into the love story of Ty and Aiyla. I didn't really realize it was apart of a series because I was reading on my phone and couldn't see the cover well enough and since I didn't read the synopsis I didn't know. But, as I read I began to pick up on how some of the other characters were woven into the story and wondered if they had been introduced in a previous book. The other thing I kept thinking was is this gonna end happy? I almost dreaded each turn of the page. I could see something was going on and I was hoping for Ty and Aiyla that the tragedy wouldn't tear them apart. Thrill Of Love was a super sweet story! Ty was such a sweet main character. He was one of those guys that you dream about. He was physically strong and athletic. He was a super sweet guy. And he was romantic! Aiyla was just as sweet. She had a strong spirit. I enjoyed Ty's family. They were loving toward each other and accepting of Aiyla. I loved the camaraderie Ty had with his brothers. Thrill Of Love was a great introduction to me to the Braden's of Peaceful Harbor. I enjoyed it and look forward to reading more of this series! I received a complimentary copy from Tasty Book Tours.

This book. There literally aren't words to explain how much I love this book! Aiyla and Ty had an amazing relationship for a short time, then they walked away from each other and decided to let fate take its course. While they had pledged not to search for each other they still looked for each other everywhere they went. Fast forward to a wilderness competition, where they rediscover each other and get clarification on the things that drove them apart. Their love is as quick and as strong as before, but this time it has the possibility of being forever. When the worst happens to them will they be able to get past it and have a future together? I'll warn you, have an entire box of Kleenex handy for this book! You'll need it, as they make you laugh and sigh, but most of all cry! I received this book through Beck Valley Books Book Tours, I have volunteered to share my review and all the opinions are 100% my own.

Aiyla Bell and Ty Braden met each other at an event in Saint-Luc and there was instant chemistry. After five amazing days together, Aiyla refuses to leave with Ty, believing that if they were meant to be, fate would reunite them. A few months later, they each find themselves at another event at the same time. Both have regretted that they parted and decide that fate has brought them together twice, why fight it. Little do they know just how much fate has in store for them. This was such an emotional read for me. As usual, Aiyla and Ty were the perfect couple. I enjoyed the suspense of the races and the camaraderie of the competitors. But past that, once things started to get intense and unknown, I was like Aiyla, with my emotions running extreme. This was a beautiful story and I think Melissa gave it full justice.
