This is my very first blog tour and I’m excited to share my views on this one!
I received this book via LegiLit books in exchange for an honest review and being a part of the book tour.
Since Chris’s mother died when he was sixteen years old, he has lived for only one goal: seeking revenge on his mother’s ex-lover, Kevin. Determined not to repeat his mother’s mistake, Chris vows never to fall into love’s seductive, deceptive clutches.
With Kevin’s business teetering on the edge of bankruptcy, Chris senses his chance. He kidnaps Kevin’s stepdaughter, Julia, and sets a ransom—if Kevin cancels a company-saving business deal, then Julia will be returned. The scheme seems perfect—until Chris’s long-suppressed feelings for Julia bubble to the surface. Julia, meanwhile, proves a resilient captive with a knack for pushing Chris’s buttons, even as her own feelings for her kidnapper become increasingly conflicted.
As the passion between Chris and Julia heats up, other forces come into play. Chris isn’t the only one who wants Julia, nor is he the only one willing to abduct her to satisfy his needs. Julia’s life—and perhaps Chris’s only chance at love—are in danger. Will Chris fight for his happily ever after—or will he let destiny take its own path?
A steamy tale of revenge, passion, and forgiveness, Evitable Destiny is author Izabela Monick’s powerful debut novel.
Wow. This was the first time that I’d read an erotic/suspense novel and I liked it!
Suspense and thriller isn’t really my forte, but this book made me want more.
So there’s Chris, who has feelings for Julia, even watching her from afar, and when he kidnaps her, he plans on only having sex with her. But little did he know that he would soon make love to her and fall for her completely. I loved this whole part of the story. The steamy scenes, the times he showed affection to her, the times she was being a brat. All of it.
The other part of the story, the suspense part of it, was a little hard to follow. Maybe that’s just me, but the whole thing was a little bit of a mess. I enjoyed it, nevertheless.
The characters were good. I liked Julia, wanting freedom more than anything else, Chris, not wanting to fall in love but eventually does, Pat, who I couldn’t tell if he was the good guy or the bad guy. Kevin was a good father. They were the perfect characters for this story.
Recommendation: If you love suspense novels with hot, steamy romance, this is definitely for you!
