Inevitable (Harmony Book 1) by Angela Graham
Review courtesy of amazon:
After experiencing a humiliating break-up, twenty-two-year-old Cassandra Clarke is fresh out of college and living a simple solitary life without any intentions of pursuing love anytime soon.
When the estate next door sales, the last thing Cassandra expects is the unnerving attraction she feels for her sinfully handsome neighbor, Logan West, the young and charming single father with a playboy reputation.
It's through Oliver, Logan's four-year-old-son, who keeps popping up in her childhood tree house, that she slowly begins to catch glimpses of the compassionate and wounded man Logan has hidden beneath his strong exterior.
Cassandra knows it wrong and that she's heading for another heartbreak.
Logan will never be able to give her what she wants...Love.
Book 1 of 3
Book 2 Irreplaceable is out now.
I was sucked into this book from the prologue. It captured my attention immediately and I couldn't put it down after that. This book starts out with Cassandra coming home and finding that her boyfriend is home...but he's not alone. They share a house together. Her friend Hilary, tells it's probably nothing, he may have just been sick, but Cassandra knows that jeep parked in her drive-way, and the reputation of the girl who drives it. Against her better judgement, she goes into the house. When she realizes her worst fears are true, she leaves the house, never to return again. She moves into her grandparents house which was a childhood home for her. She has focused on school and left men alone. Determined to get a teaching job. An entire year goes by and she's out jogging with her friend Hilary, (I absolutely love her) almost getting run down by a moving truck, she notices that the house next door has sold. Between wondering who would want to spend that much money on the mansion just to live in Harmony, and the fact that she won't be able to use the pool anymore since their are new owners she shrugs it off. That's until she sees the Super Hot Sexy Irresistibly handsome man standing on the porch! Delicious.
Logan West, has everything going for him. He's rich, has a beautiful sister who loves him to death and an amazing little boy that looks up to his daddy. The only thing missing his Oliver's mother. Logan, is the player of all players. Not wanting to settle down, he uses sex as an escape. Never spending more than one night usually with a woman or two. So when he lays eyes on Cassandra, he knows he has to have her. But she's not like any other woman he's met. For one, she's not throwing herself at him. And she actually acts like she wants nothing do with him. He's determined to change that pretty little mind of her. Oliver, the cutest four-year-old ever, ends up playing in Cassandra's childhood tree house and the two quickly strike up a friendship. Julia, Logan's younger sister, warns Cassandra of her brother and tell's her to stay away. At least she seem's super nice and is easily lovable. Cassandra and Logan, eventually can't help but to run into each other...A lot. Cassandra is looking for a long term relationship but Logan has made it obvious he is not. These two quickly strike up a wonderful friendship, all thanks to Oliver. So what happens when both their pasts show up full force and drama and tension is brought into the mix? Well you will have to read to find out. I will tell you that it is a Cliff Hanger ending and I for one, hate Cliff hangers. But this one was so perfect. All cliff hanger endings should take note from Angela Graham, because she definitely knows how to really leave you wanting more. Watching Cassandra go from being shy and reserved to gaining so much confidence is so amazing. Hint: Pool dance for Logan! It was fun and had me smiling.
This book was very enjoyable for me. Watching the characters grow in their own way. Seeing a friendship blossom. You even see Hilary come out of her shell. I connected with Cassandra on an emotional level. Not to mention, the sexual tension is through the Roof! You will definitely need a cold glass of water while reading this Hot Book! Angela Graham has an amazing talent. She really let's you feel what is going on and her writing is fantastic. When I was done I actually sent her a message personally thanking her for a job well done. I loved it. So definitely go check this book out!
I give this book 5 Amazing Hot Stars! It deserves no less. Great Job Angela!
