I can guarantee it will take you on an epic ride that you will remember for a long time to come. Fortuity was all that and then beyond my expectations.
I had been hopeful we would get Professor Nathaniel Hunt’s story after the Transcend Duet. So when the author announced that we were getting his story I was legit over the moon excited! ✨
Fortuity is the story of single dad Nathaniel Hunt who’s raising his sassy ten year old daughter and Gracelyn Glock a forty-one year old who’s just became the guardian of her ten year old nephew after a tragedy in her family. This story was everything, my friends. Nathaniel who hasn’t been with anyone in ten years since the death of his wife and Gracelyn who is on a self imposed “man ban” obviously I just knew I was in for a most amazing tale and boy did it deliver.
I love Nathaniel’s character, actually have since the Transcend Duet. To an outsider he appears stoic, but he melts at the sight of his little girl. His biggest fear is his daughter Morgan growing up and leaving home. Morgan is ten going on twenty. They are just so funny together. He’s always talked to her like a grown up and she’s mature for her age. She’s a total daddy’s girl and their relationship is priceless. This child, y’all. I laughed and laughed! Like seriously tears of laughter rolling down my face.
When Gracelyn enters the picture she brings a fun side out of Nate that had been buried a long time ago. She was very self conscious about her new role as mother figure and he was reassuring and supportive. I love to see the Nate he was with Gracelyn.
I absolutely loved Gracelyn’s character. She was quirky, and sweet. She had given up on ever having marriage and kids of her own. When she moved her nephew to the beach and met the new neighbors, Nate and Morgan she was instantly attracted to the widowed single dad. His daughter was just adorable and funny. Gracelyn formed a special bond with Morgan too. Omg the the questions Morgan asked Gracelyn, I Died Y’all! Lol
I don’t want to give away anything because it’s just so funny and sweet and emotional and I really want you to experience this book as I did. Every page is something new and exciting to discover and enjoy. You will enjoy it. Happy Reading Friends!!

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- Frankly, I’m just in love with everything about this book y’all! Squee!! Yes, Yes, Yes!
“What took you two so long? Don’t worry, we saved you some cake.” Mr. Hans smiles from his recliner with Hunter on the sofa, her thumbs dancing along her phone screen. Gabe will get along well with her.
My steps falter when I hear Nate’s voice from the kitchen.
Mr. Hans winks at me. “I invited Nate for cake too.”
I nod slowly. “I see. Whose birthday is it?”
“Life is a celebration. Cake needs no excuse.”
So much for having some time to digest what Nate said to me and my flirty reaction to his kiss comment. I put on a neutral face and drag my timid ass into the kitchen.
“Cake, Gracelyn?” Nate glances up from the counter, a knife in one hand and a plate in his other hand.
“Mmm … yes, Gracelyn. You want cake.” Morgan rolls her eyes back in her head as she slowly chews a bite, standing next to Nate.
How am I supposed to look at him when I saw him barely an hour ago and he said he wanted to kiss me, and I returned the desire without the actual kiss? I guess we’re going to be two people who want to kiss but know that it will never happen.
“Thank you.” I take the cake, giving Nate a two-second glance. It’s all I can give him without completely self-combusting into a pile of ashes.
“Mr. Hans … this is so good.” Morgan traipses out of the kitchen.
“It is good. I haven’t had cake in a long time.” I slowly lick the frosting from the fork.
Nate glances at the floor, eyes narrowed, and hunches down. After a few seconds, I move around to his side of the island.
“Did you drop something?”
Hunched like a baseball catcher, gaze still to the floor, he crooks a finger at me.
I set my plate on the counter. “Did you lose a contact lens?” I squat next to him behind the counter.
He lifts his gaze to meet my squinted eyes. The corner of his mouth bends just as his hand slides behind my head and his lips press to mine.
What the hell?
My lungs freeze while my heart pauses and my mind explodes. There’s no tongue to this kiss, just hungry lips. It knocks me off balance, and I fall to my knees, resting my hands on his shoulders.
Nate pulls back half an inch, letting his lips hover next to mine, the warmth of his breath covering my stunned mouth. “I’m not even sorry.” He shrugs.
My mouth opens as if it wants to speak, but I have no idea what to say.
Nate bolts up, leaving me on my knees. “Yes?”
“Can Hunter use—” Morgan’s eyes narrow at me, my head barely peeking over the counter. “Gracelyn, what are you doing?”
“I’m …” I give her a tight smile.
Nate says, “Picking up a few crumbs.”
At the same time, I say, “Tying your dad’s shoe.”
His explanation is much better.
Morgan laughs. “Um … okay. You’re both acting weird.”
I climb to my feet.
“Can Hunter use what?” Nate asks.
“Your bike so we can go for a bike ride.”
“Are you going to stay around here?”
Morgan nods. “Pinky swear. We won’t go too far.”
“I’ll need to put the seat down for her.”
“Yes! Thanks, Dad. I’ll go tell her.” Morgan runs out of the kitchen.
Nate covers the cake with plastic wrap and nods to my plate with the half-eaten piece of cake. “Are you going to finish that?”
Cake. He wants to talk about the cake?
My head inches side to side.
“Too good to let it go to waste.” He picks up the plate and finishes my cake.
YOU KISSED ME!
“By the way …” His gaze remains on the plate as he scoops up the last bite. “Morgan knows I know how to tie my own shoes.”
