About Evitable Destiny
After Chris’s mother dies, he vows to seek revenge on his mother’s ex-lover Kevin whom he blames for her death. He also vows to never make his mother’s mistakes and fall in love.
When Kevin’s company begins to falter, Chris sees his chance and kidnaps Kevin’s step-daughter, Julia. His ransom? Kevin must cancel his business saving deal in order to have Julia returned alive. What Chris doesn’t count on is his feelings for Julia, who pushes his buttons and whose own feelings for her kidnapper become confusing.
As the romance between Chris and Julia heats up, other factors slowly come into play. Chris is not the only one who wants Julia, and others will stop at nothing to capture her. Will Chris fight for his future with Julia or will he let destiny play out on its own?
Evitable Destiny follows the story of Chris and his plot to take revenge on Kevin for his Mother’s demise. Julia is the key to his revenge. When he kidnaps her, he feels nothing about it. But slowly a relationship builds between them. Julia develops a Stockholm syndrome for Chris but is angry with him for not trusting her. The middle to end of the novel was full of twisting shocks and surprises, many of which I did not see coming at all!.
The plot is a really great idea but it almost feels like something may be missing, almost as if it needs to be developed a bit more in the beginning. After the slowly built beginning, the story becomes fast paced and exciting to follow. By the middle of the novel you do not want to put it down, as the story becomes fast paced with lots of curve balls thrown your way. Some of which completely shocked me (in a good way!).
