Fall in love with Ty Braden, a world-renowned mountain climber and nature photographer. He’s about to take on his toughest assignment yet–winning the heart of the one that got away.
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.
“I knew you were different the first day we met. What I had before you was not a good thing. Maybe I thought it was at the time, or for some of that time, but nothing compares to what we have when we were together. You and I had a great thing, Aiyla, and that’s what I want. I want you.”
“There was something magnetic about him. He seemed to always be in motion, even when he was still. Like his mind was whirring and it created an energy around him, calling out to her and drawing her in.”
Thrill of Love is the 6th story in the Love in Bloom: Bradens at Peaceful Harbor Series and follows the story of Ty and Ayila. Their story is exciting, and thrilling with just the right amount of sexy.
Ty is mysterious and the man you never thought would fall in love. He is known around the world for his exciting adventures and his excellent photography. He has everything he could possibly want in life. The only thing he is missing is the one who got away…Ty never believed in second dates or fate until he met Ayila. Ayila was strong, funny and just so full of life. He couldn’t help but gravitate towards her. They end up spending five amazing nights and days together and in the end, decide to leave things up to fate. If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be….Now months later, fate has once again brought Ayila and Ty together and this time Ty will not let anything stand in the way of getting the woman he wants..
Thrill of Love was a really exciting read. I fell in love with Ty and Ayila from the very beginning. From the moment you meet these two you can tell that they have a deep connection. I loved Ty’s determination to win Ayila over. He knew that he had something amazing with her and refused to miss another opportunity with her. Ty was sweet and sexy, alpha when necessary and totally swoon worthy. And Ayila…boy she is one determined lady. She is stubborn and refuses to quit anything that she starts. She’s used to doing it all on her own and finds it hard to admit defeat. She is funny, dedicated and loves with everything that she has. She accepts Ty for who he is and for who he was in the past. Together, these two make an amazing team and there is nothing that they can’t overcome together.
Thrill of Love is a beautiful story of love, family and friendship. This story is filled with laughs, sexy good times and obstacles our couple must overcome. This story does deal with some tough subject matter and I appreciated how real and courageous our characters were. How the situation could happen to anyone and the courage it takes to stick things out when things get scary or rough.
Overall, I think this story is a beautiful addition to this series. I was glued to the pages and couldn’t get enough of Ty and Ayila. Thrill of Love was a thrilling read and I look forward to seeing what this author has in store for us next.
