REVIEW, BLOG TOUR & GIVEAWAY - Inevitable Detour by S.R. Grey

Book & Author details:
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**

**** out of 5 (really liked it)

This book starts with a 22 year old college student who is doing everything to please her parents, including taking the college course that they want her to. She and her best friend Haven have just finished this year's finals and they go to the local bar to blow off some steam. There they meet a couple of guys and one thing leads to another and they take them home. I won't say more than this at this point because you really need to read it for yourself. You will feel the tension, the frustration, the disbelief, the concern - it's all here and you will find yourself gripped by the story as it progresses.
One thing that I absolutely loved about this is that there is no love triangle and our main couple didn't try to 'play' each other. OK, so that's two things but I'm sure you understand what I'm trying to say!
This does have mature themes and one in particular stayed with me after I had read the book, and that is when Farren has to take Essa with him to meet one of the 'bad guys'. I understand why what happened happened but it doesn't mean that I have to like it. And I also wonder if it will have any bearing in book 2 which is due out next year.
Romantic, suspenseful, hot, action packed, thrilling, tense - all of these descriptions apply. Definitely a page turner and definitely one to enjoy again and again.

  1. I don't mind love triangles at all when the story is done well and that it's not just there for drama. I like how intense and action packed this sounds, too!

  2. Thank you for taking part in the blog tour. :)
