Title: Evitable Destiny
Author: Izabela Monick
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. Disclaimer: This book contains graphic scenes with elements of rape and violence. Evitable Destiny is not intended for readers who are under 18 or are sensitive to those subjects.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
This is a debut novel from this author, and I must say that I am extremely impressed on what a good job she has done.
This book is full of complicated relationships. Firstly, we have Julia who just wants to free from her controlling stepfather Kevin. Then we meet Chris who just wants revenge against Kevin for the abuse that he had done in the past to Chris’s mother. Chris kidnaps Julia as revenge. Both of these main characters are very likable. Julia brings out the best side of Chris, and I enjoyed how these two developed throughout the book. This book drew me in from the very beginning as it is action packed and the reader just wants to see what happens next. The sex scenes are hot. There are a lot of secondary characters in this book the author does a really good job of intertwining them altogether.
Be warned that there are scenes of rape and control issues; therefore be aware of triggers that may be a factor.
The author has done an amazing job, and I will definitely be recommending her work. Look forward to seeing what else Izabela has in store for her readers.
I gave this book a 5 rating, and if I had not been aware of the fact that this was a debut novel I would not have picked up on it.
Izabela has always loved both math and writing, but even though she picked an accounting
career to pay her bills, she still dreamed of one day becoming an author. Finally, she found the
courage to sit down and write her own novel. Izabela lives in New York with her family and sun
conure, Waddles, who imitates kissing all day long. When she’s not riding roller coasters or
climbing trees with her children, she’s creating unusual characters and shocking her readers
with unexpected twists and turns, while keeping her plots brimming with passion until the final
page. Evitable Destiny is her debut novel.
