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.
Chris was an interesting guy. He was dominant but also had that softer side of him to balance his character. I loved how even though he had one main objective, Chris made sure Julia was safe. I could see a lot of growth throughout the book and loved what I saw.
Julia at times annoyed me. It was like she just couldn’t not push boundaries. She had to test limits, whether it was her stepfather or Chris that she was testing. It did take me a while to warm up to her but I was happy with how she changed through the book.
So if I enjoyed it, why the three stars? Well to be perfectly honest, it was a plot twist that dropped it from five to three. The plot twist to me seemed to come out of left field and confused me. It didn’t make sense or add anything to the book in my opinion. Had the author gone another direction with that plot twist, or perhaps left it out entirely, I would have enjoyed the ending portion of the book more.
