Serenity, the conclusion to the emotional and romantic Fortuity Duet by Rochelle Paige, is available NOW!
I’d lived a privileged life, in the lap of luxury and surrounded by family. It had felt like I was on top of the world…until tragedy struck.
My sense of loss felt bottomless, and I struggled with it every single day. Finding my path back into the light seemed impossible.
But then I met Faith—she was smart, sexy, and out of my league even though she didn’t have a penny to her name. We grew up in different worlds, but somehow we fit perfectly together.
Except neither of us had counted on learning that our connection was more profound than we knew.
Okay, so here’s the thing. Why weren’t Elaine and her kindness the main characters?! I’m so confused. I loved her. She’s the best. But I still liked the book so let’s keep going.
Serenity, unlike Fortuity, is more about Faith and Dillon’s relationship and the hardships of their lives.
I have to say, I didn’t love the amount of drama in this book. I thought it was a little too much. Maybe it’s the fact that I don’t enjoy drama but I felt like it was truly unnecessary, we could’ve had one big bomb and the book would’ve been okay without it, at least I think so. My reaction to the rest of the drama was more of a “oh my god, really? Whyyy?” Instead of it grabbing my hand and pulling me into the story.
Now enough for the rant of how much I don’t like unnecessary drama and into the things I liked: Faith and Dillon are so supportive and caring towards each other. I die every time I remember them. I feel like they have a good strong relationship to build a future on. Also, I really like that it normalizes going to therapy, it shows that therapists are not only for “crazy” people.
Overall, I liked this duet, it was a cute quick read. Was it one of my favorites? No, but I liked it okay. I think it’s sweet.

“You feeling okay?” I murmured in Faith’s ear as I pulled her closer. We were watching a movie, cuddled on the couch together. I was leaning back against the cushions in the corner, and she was between my legs with her head on my chest. But she wasn’t relaxed like she should be after a day out shopping with my mom. She was so damn tense she was practically vibrating with it.
I slid my palms up her arms, pleased as fuck at the goosebumps that followed in the wake of my touch. There was no denying that she still responded to me with the same fierceness she had since we first met. But there was also no denying that something was wrong with Faith. She’d seemed off ever since we got situated on the couch a few hours earlier. I wasn’t sure what was bothering her, but it felt like she was pulling away from me.
When she’d moved in with me a couple of weeks ago, life had seemed as close to perfect as it could get. We had our college degrees. My dad gave me a week off before I started my new job at his company. Living with me meant Faith could continue on for her master’s degree without worrying about money. It was a big fucking deal that she was willing to let me take care of her that way since she was so damn self-sufficient.
My tough girl had finally taken down some of her walls and let me in. She’d even found the courage to admit she loved me.
But no matter how often she said those three little words, I still felt like she hadn’t let me all the way in. I figured it’d take time, and I needed to be patient with her. To remember she wasn’t used to being loved by anyone and didn’t know how to handle it.
Normally, I was okay with that. But tonight it was almost as though she was scared. And if my tough girl was afraid of something, then it was my job to make her feel safe. Which would be a hell of a lot easier if I knew what I was up against; only Faith wasn’t giving me much to go on.
