Blessed Fate by Heather Heinzer

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?

I wasn't sure what to expect of Blessed Fate as it is only my second time reading a book that is set during the exact same time as the first one, but told from a different characters point of view, but let me tell you I was not disappointed! I liked Colton most times during the first book, but there was a couple times that I just wanted to give him a good punch in the arm and tell him to smarten up lol, but reading this has opened my eyes to what he was thinking during those times, and it made me understand him a whole lot more. Blessed Fate is about the lives of Colton and Raine, members of the group Blessed Tragedy, who are best friends. At the beginning of the book we learn that Raine's mother has been diagnosed with cancer, and Colton helps her try and deal with this, he wants her to go home and spend some time with her and the family, however, after emailing back and forth with her dad, she decides that it does not sound that urgent, so she chooses to stay out on tour as her dad said that this was her mother's wish.  Colton has had feelings for Raine for years, and he has asked her out to dinner before, but she turned him down as she has a "no dating band members" rule. When everything comes up with her mother, they seem to grow even closer, and he takes his chances again, but again he is denied as she is dealing with too much at the moment to think about anything like that. As it turns out, they decide to go for it and become a couple. This does not sit well with some people and the author really knows how to write the jealous girl part, she drove me crazy. I understand that Colton had chose in the past to have a physical relationship with her, but he had never lead her to believe that it was anything more, and he knew that it was a mistake on his end. This is a part of the story that we see follow through the remainder of the book, and it adds some twists that were really fun to read. I think one of my favourite aspects of this book was seeing everything so differently from Colton's point of view, with both Blessed Tragedy and Blessed Fate, we see the same story line, but it almost plays out like two completely separate story lines as there is such a difference as far as how each character views a situation, and how they react to it. I also really liked the romance with Colton and Raine throughout, it is not perfect, and each of them screw up at some point, and have their issues, but in reality who doesn't right? I liked it because it was so real, there was no insta-love happily-ever-after, this was definitely something that they had to work at, and grow with each other, and learn how to fit that other person in their lives as both of them have been single for so long that it is a drastic change to have someone there all of a sudden. I cannot say enough how much I have enjoyed reading about these characters, and all the other ones in the books as well. The band members are awesome, and I have grown to understand and like Raine's family as well. If you are someone who likes new adult, this is definitely a series that you need to check out, it has drama, comedy, family issues, and romance all wrapped up in to one! Oh, and don't forget about the aspect the awesome band on the way to being rock stars. I would give this one a 5/5, check it out if you have not already!

I love this series!! Can't wait for the next book which is overdue I believe: just praying that this great author is well and doing a rewrite. Anyway, Colton ad Raine are such a great couple and I love the interaction between them. And that is despite some serious misteps from Colon. I love being able to get both POV's from character and truy apprecated the book: have rewread series several times so far. Don't miss this author!!

I really did enjoy this story. I loved getting to know the band members, they were all likable, even Jon who was a little bossy at times. Although there wasn't much character development throughout the story, I still connected with Rain, feeling her pain and devastation, as well as Colton's anguish and hopelessness. Colt was an absolute sweetheart. He was deeply in love with Rain, a little obsessive at times, but he was a genuinely good guy. Although he made his fair share of mistakes, err Tanya, I couldn't help falling for him. It was wonderful to see a guy so devoted to his girl. He'd do just about anything for her, and when he messed up it killed him to have to see the pain he caused her. He also wasn't afraid to apologize!! I'd love to get my hands on book one, as I'd really like to read this story from Rain's POV. She was a little high-strung and went off on a tangent, so it would be interesting to see exactly what she was thinking or feeling at certain times. There were a few sleazeball characters in this book. Tanya, yes, Colt's mistake! That woman deserved so much more than the tongue lashing she got. She was despicable. Then there was Garrett. I know Maddie could vouch for him, but I just had a very uneasy feeling whenever he appeared. I'm still convinced his motives were not entirely pure, even after he and Colt had their one-on-one. Overall this was a quick, fun read. The serious and sad moments made the characters more real and believable, and gave the story a great emotional twist.

Blessed Fate is the story filled with rockers, steam, and angst. It's no secret to anyone that if I see the words "rock" and "band", I'm going to be interested in a story. So when this book came my way, I had to give it a try. Blessed Fate is actually not a rock band story so much, but the story of two people, struggling with the pressures of fame and trying to make a relationship work when insecurities move in. Colton and Rain's story, of moving beyond friends to lovers. It seems that I often prefer the book hero over the heroine, but in this case, it was the reverse. Rain was pretty cool. She was a kick butt rocker who is no wilting flower. She was tough, brave, and not willing to take anyone's crap. She wasn't perfect by any means, but she was a force and I love book girls like that. Though he was no Rain, I liked Colton too. I loved his devotion to Rain, even though he didn't always make the best decisions. And I actually didn't hold some of those against him. I liked that even though he usually tried his best, he did act like a human, and not the perfect book boyfriend. It made him feel more real to me. Colton's willingness to whatever it took to make Rain happy and healthy earned my respect. So I mentioned that Blessed Fate was less of the story of a rock band, and more about the relationships inside that band, particularly Rain and Colton's. This was a slow burning relationship, which I did like. I liked that Rain held Colt accountable for his actions, and made him earn a relationship with her. But once they got to together, it wasn't smooth. Their relationship felt authentic to the situation. I will say that the first part of the book didn't seem to have a real direction. I felt like I was just coasting along on a nice little story. Once I got a feel for where the story was going, I did enjoy it more. There's a lot of angst in Blessed Fate, but again, it gave it a sense of authenticity. I did like how the story progressed and ended. Blessed Fate was an angsty, fast-paced story. It should be a good fit for fans of rock star drama.
