***Warning Warning Some Spoilers Ahead***
Cassandra a.k.a. Cassie found out in a very painful and crappy way that life does not always turn out the way you planned. After dating Mark for five years and envisioning that she’d spend the rest of her life with him, she caught him banging the town hussy in their bedroom. Although she was devastated at the discovery, I was very impressed at the way she was able to hold herself together and leave an everlasting impression with her fist connecting with Mark’s face! Ha! Take that you lying bastard! Of course you could imagine the looks I got in the courtyard by passer byers when I actually jumped up in my seat and said that right! Hahaha!
End that chapter in her life…cue sexy Logan and his adorable son, Oliver. One of my favorite events in the book would have to be Cassie’s firs encounter with Logan during her morning jog. Now Cassie tried her dang hardest to not get distracted by Logan, but to her avail she ends up tripping and scraping her knee. The result of all of that = Logan carrying a mortified Cassie over his shoulder home. Honestly, this part had me cracking up hysterically and feeling sorry for her at the same time.
Looking back to see what he was doing, I gasped. He was blatantly staring at my ass that happened to be inches from his face.
While he and Cassie are very sexually attracted to one another, they both want different things. Logan wants a sex buddy, while Cassie concludes that she has never been that kind of girl and would never be. Instead of shacking up with one another, they become friends. This allows Cassie to spend a huge amount of time with Oliver.
Aside from Logan’s playboy status (hence random women sneaking out of his home at all hours of the day/night) and his flirtatious ways, you discover that Logan is actually a great father/man. He’s caring, kind, considerate, and protective. With Oliver’s mother leaving him three years prior before Oliver turned one, any person could understand how difficult it would be to allow another woman to get close to his son. You learn that everything he does, is for Oliver, to protect him from another disappointment.
One thing you should know about me, Cassandra. I love my son. He is my first priority.
There were so many different events that I absolutely adored like Cassie befriending Oliver and Logan, Hillary finally getting with Caleb (God only knows that took forever lol), and Logan finally learning to love. It was a well written story that felt natural. The book has deception, drama, romance, comedy, a traumatic event and love. The best thing about Inevitable though is that it’s about a man and a woman finding themselves. With all of the pain that they’ve both endured, (Cassie with her cheating ex and Logan with his absent ex both making their way back into their lives…which you’ll have to find out how by reading the book hehehe) they managed to find themselves along the way. Cassie learns to trust and be happy again, even if it’s just as Logan’s BFF for the moment, while Logan learns that he can’t keep drowning his sorrow in drinking and meaningless sex with many women (trust me…many).
BUT with the self-revelations that they both have, there’s still much more that they both need to learn and conquer about themselves and each other. Cue CLIFFHANGER <<< sad face >>> Loved the book, characters, and writing style. I can’t wait until the next book comes out soon!!!
Meet the Author
I am happily married to my husband of five years, have three wonderful children and a beautiful feline companion that keeps me company during late night writing binges.
My love of reading has been life long but it was in early 2012 when I was inspired to finally put pen to paper and write my first story. Since then I haven’t been able to stop, fueled purely by my passion to write a story and create characters that readers will enjoy.
New Adult romances are my go to books to read as well as to write. They are young, fresh and full of hope. What’s not to love!
