All Ike Thomas wants to do is to keep out of trouble and get through the one year internship required for his degree program. But trouble finds him, in the form of an intelligent and brave girl who turns his world upside down. Falling in love is forbidden. So why does it feel so right?
A love like theirs cannot be denied. But catastrophe lies in wait and one night changes their lives forever.
Bound to Fate is a story about surviving tragedy, forgiveness, and the overwhelming love that pulls through against the odds.
Content warning: This book contains scenes that might be triggering for some readers.
Lara is starting over with her sister. After their parents death they moved to their aunts in a new city. Her first day at a new school is terrifying to her and when she meets her teacher, she can’t believe how gorgeous, and young, he is.
Ike Thomas is working on a year internship at a high school as a geography teacher. His new student has captured him, everything about her he can’t resist. They begin a forbidden romance that he ends abruptly and devastates Lara. That night changes her for the rest of her life.
What a great read! Such innocence that turn into devastation. How one decision effects the rest of life. I liked how strong minded and brave Lara is and even though Ike left her, how he was always so caring and concerned for her well being. The author wrote very well and keeps you hooked with a very steady passed story line. Looking forwarded to reading more! This gets four diamonds from a reviewer for Romance Authors That Rock!
