Forty-something Gracelyn Glock is living the dream.
No husband.
No retirement plan.
And since her self-imposed man-ban—no need to shave above her knees.

After a tragic accident, Gracelyn inherits her ten-year-old nephew. She signs a lease on a San Diego beach house and learns their neighbors for the summer are a sexy anatomy professor and his young daughter.

Professor Nathaniel Hunt has spent the last decade being a single dad . . . and not having sex.

So when he discovers Gracelyn has a peculiar outdoor stripping ritual, a million inappropriate thoughts fill his responsible mind.

When kisses are stolen, man-bans are broken, and summer comes to an end, will hearts stay in one piece and hope stay alive? Or will saying goodbye destroy everything?

Review of Fortuity 
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Professor Nathaniel Hunt meets Gracelyn Glock, and their lives fully intersect in Fortuity (Transcendence 3), which is a standalone romance that transcends the ages. Like Epoch, this story was epic. Nate and Gracelyn’s love story was fortuitous…it was meant to be.

I started to skim the Transcend Duet since I read and obsessed about it almost two years ago. Would I LOVE to see you read the Transcend duet before diving into Fortuity? Yes, because they are two of my favorite books, and you’ll get a deeper understanding of Nate’s complicated existence. This third installment has deeply interconnected elements, but can 100% enjoyed as a standalone.

I snapped at my family while reading this book (more than I usually due when I’m rudely interrupted with screaming). I said, “please let me read this book in peace. It’s about life, death, soulmates, second-chances, and it’s a bit serious, so I’m begging you to please stop screaming. I never beg you guys.” They actually listened! Someone in another dimension had my back. This slice of reading heaven was my fortuitous moment. Like Jewel’s other books, Fortuity took a piece of my heart and put it back together to reincarnate all the feels. It was meant to be.

This book is brilliant. You will find yourself shedding a tear or giggling on any given page. Go into this book blind and experience all the feels. It’s by Jewel E. Ann; you won’t be disappointed. One-click worthy.

“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. 
“Cake, Morgan?” 
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. 
“Dad …” 
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. 
“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.”
