Inevitable Detour

Inevitable Detour by S.R. Grey
(Inevitability #1)
Publication date: September 7th 2014
Genres: New Adult, Romance, Suspense

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.

**mature themes**



My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Essalin Bryant is a college student who is unsure about her degree choice and her life. She is looking to rebel from degree path her parents want her to get (a Business Degree). Essa believes in fate and life altering decisions but takes no chances to change her life. She is a good little, inexperience girl who will do anything to please for her parents.

Essa lives with her best friend Haven Shaw. They are very close. They only have each other at their small college. Essa knows what it is like to be alone, an only child. She depends on Haven for support. Haven has an older brother, that Essa is crushing on, but she rarely sees him (Farren).

One day Haven goes missing and Farren appears. While Farren is trying to assess the situation and find his sister, Essa has to make one of the biggest decisions of her life. Does she go with Farren or does she remain the quiet, non-adventure girl, who her parents have raised her to be.

Essa takes a chance and goes with Farren.

While Essa and Farren are trying to find Haven, Essa learns about herself, life and it’s cruelties and she learns about love/lust.

This story has some mature theme so be beware. The story was filled with action, it was definitely suspenseful and their were some sex scenes that may make you fan yourself.

Overall, I did not feel connected to the story, the characters and the sex was meah…just not my cup of tea. I mean, the fact that they had some unprotected sex that was truly spontaneous and delightful. I likes that because it was just raw and in the moment.

There were some WTF and OMG moments and I will admit S.R. Grey, she got me. I did like that. Now because of all of that, I gave this book a three star rating.

Happy Reading.
