Enduring Fate by Alicia Rae
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

GENRE: Contemporary
THEME: Romance, Cowboys


Colton Kingston has loved Paige Summers his entire life. All he has ever dreamed of is having Paige by his side while he lives the simple life of a cowboy raising horses and cattle on his farm.

When tragedy strikes, fate tests the strength of their love.
Paige’s confidence is shaken as she wonders if she can heal from her past and move forward, so Colton can have the life he was born to live.

Can Colton and Paige endure everything in fate’s path?

Or will Paige give up her one true love to give Colton the life he deserves?


Enduring Fate reminded me a lot of the television show Heartland. A girl who loves her life on her family ranch, as well as taking care and riding horses. An accident happens changes everything, she starts to second-guess and isn’t sure what path is the right one in her life now. I cant imagine going through something so traumatic that it makes you question the life you grew up loving.

Enduring Fate follows Paige who was living the dream on her ranch with her horses and the love of her life and neighbor Colton. But an accident that cost the life of her horse and almost the life of Colton, changes Paige outlook and takes her away from everything she loved. Now trying to work through therapy to help her injured leg, she also has to deal with the fact she left behind Colton who isn’t ready to let her go. Both are struggling with moving forward and neither want to let go with their past but are afraid of the future.

This whole story was an emotional roller coaster, Paige is constantly questioning her life on the ranch and pushing away the love of her life. I actually couldn’t connect to Paige as I felt she wasn’t really thinking about everyone she was hurting including herself. There were a lot of challenges getting in the way of Colton winning her back, not only the fear haunting her but his own home has been targeted by a powerful man in their town. Nothing seemed to be going right for either of them and I felt horrible for both.

Colton was my favorite; he seriously is a cowboy and has the biggest heart. Everything he does in this story he’s doing it for the love of Paige and hoping he can fight for their future. He has been so patient with her pushing him away as well as the fact she blames herself for what was an accident. I adored every scene Colton was in and even more so when he brought back the light in Paige again.

Overall I loved the passion and heartfelt moments of the main couple, there was so much sadness but I have a feeling these two will beat the roadblocks ahead. There is a major villain who is determined to make Colton’s life a living hell and seriously I wanted Colton to just give this person a piece of his mind and fight back. The ending is killer; I hate cliffhangers with a passion and usually don’t like reading a series that has them unless they are completed. So I’m a bit bummed but I think Paige will become the fighter in the next book and help Colton. In the end Rae does a fantastic job pulling at the heartstrings and keeping an even pace that kept me hooked and rooting for two loving characters.
