Title: Tempting Fate
Author: Pamela Clare
Series: Colorado High Country #4
Release Date: June 28, 2017

My Rating: 4.5 Stars
A woman with no roots…

Naomi fled the cult-like nightmare of her childhood and learned to rely on one person—herself. Her resourcefulness keeps her alive during a catastrophe in the mountains, but it’s no help at all when it comes to Chaska Belcourt, the sexy EMT who saves her life. Raised to feel shame about her body and sex, she is putty in Chaska’s hands as he strips away her armor, exposing the vulnerable woman beneath, awakening desires in her that she’d been taught to ignore.

A kiss that changes everything…

Chaska Belcourt grew up on the reservation, the son of a hereditary Sun Dance chief. He left all of that behind for a new life in Colorado as an engineer with an aerospace firm and a member of the elite Rocky Mountain Search & Rescue Team. He doesn’t share his sister’s belief that fate led him to find Naomi. But from the first moment their lips touch, he can’t get enough of her.

A love that transforms…

As the passion between them turns into something more, Chaska is forced to admit that his sister is right. There’s no other way to explain the depth of his feelings for Naomi—or the fact that he and his people might hold the key to unraveling the mysteries of her past. But she will have to learn to trust again before the two of them can find the answers she needs—and claim this once-in-a-lifetime love.

TEMPTING FATE is one of those books that's more than a romance. It's a dive into another world of unique, funny, and relatable characters and a story based in strength and hope. Chaska and Naomi each have their need for independence, but when their paths cross, seemingly by divine intervention, they fall together an undeniable passion. It's not fast, it's not easy, but it's perfectly sweet and sinful and oh so right. But it might be so right that neither can believe and trust in it. Even though when they're together around the house, out and about or with the Team the fit together in a way they can't turn away from. It's too much of a good thing, when they've never known something this good before. And that perfect fit leads Naomi to a truth she never expected and always craved, but it could be the very thing that steals her away from Chaska. 

Chaska and Naomi together gave me all the warm and fuzzies. He's incredibly kind, sweet, and insanely sexy that will make you hot and bothered in all the right ways. Naomi, is that little bit of wildfire, and little bit of insecure that's in all of us. And her path to where the ending finds her, grabbed onto all of my emotions and tugged until I was rushing to finish this incredible story. I can't quite explain it, but TEMPTING FATE just sucked me in and left me needing more from this eclectic and lovable group of people. Chaska and Naomi really felt like an epic love to me, but what they found with each other, the acceptance and embrace of others they never knew they needed also touched something deep in my heart as well. A fantastic addition to the Colorado High Country series and I'll be desperately waiting for more from Ms. Clare!

Happy Reading!
