The day my life took an inevitable detour things got a little crazy.

My name is Essalin Brant, but everyone calls me Essa. I attend a small college in a tiny town, and in my twenty-two years of life I’ve never even traveled outside the state of Pennsylvania. You could say my life is pretty boring. I live by the rules. I’m a good girl and nothing exciting ever happens.

But that’s all about to change.

Enter Farren Shaw. Not only is he older and intimidating, but he’s more sure of himself than any 29-year-old man has a right to be. Did I mention that he’s drop-dead gorgeous? Well, he is. He also happens to be my best friend Haven’s brother. And I would be content with just fantasizing about Farren from afar, but when Haven suddenly goes missing, her gorgeous brother is the only one who believes me when I say she was abducted, even though all signs seem to suggest Haven left town willingly.

I know better, though. As does Farren. So when he asks me to accompany him to search for his sister, I accept.

That’s when the real adventure begins.

Our quest to find Haven takes us across the country. And throughout the time we spend together, I find myself falling for Farren . . . falling hard. He’s everything I’ve ever wanted. But is he really someone I should fear?

Because aside from making me feel things I’ve never felt before, Farren is hiding something. Something big. What could this stunning man be keeping from me? And why? Is Haven’s disappearance somehow connected to his mysterious job?

All I know is that things are about to get real.

Welcome to the Inevitable Detour that has become my life.

***Melanie – #NerdGirlVamp’s Review***

 Having devoured this author’s “Harbour Falls” series earlier this year I was excited to see a review request for a new series.

This is certainly different to the Harbour Falls series but it is a well written story, but like with book 1 in her previous series this one took a little time to get going.

I wouldn’t let that dissuade you though. This is definitely a series with interesting potential and when you get to the end you definitely wish that book 2 was already available.

Overall the story was strong with a few good twists and turns thrown in which keep the interest level high. I felt, for me personally, that some of the character reactions to events didn’t run true to life in places and that bothered me a little hence the slight drop in star rating.

I am definitely looking forward to reading book 2 though and think this series could be another success!

4 out of 5 stars from me!
