Review: Evitable Destiny by Izabela Monick @IzabelaMonick

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.


I received a copy of this novel from the Publishing Push in exchange for my honest opinion. And I need to say; thank you for that!

I took the book with me on my vacation and wasn’t sure will I read it but when I started I didn’t know how to stop. I even felt guilty because I would catch myself thinking what will happen next.
The book was interesting and well written. I enjoyed every second of it. I loved where the plot goes and even though in the end it seemed that happened too much of it, it was interesting to watch how characters react on every scene.

I loved Julia’s character. Don’t know why exactly but I think it has something with the fact that she’s Leo just like me so I understand most of her actions. She is strong female character and well characterized.

Even though I didn't like Chris and Pat in the beginning of the book they grow to my heart eventually :)

This book is not so much about sex like other erotica books and I liked that. It’s more about developing feelings and how to react on certain things in life and that was very interesting to read for me.

Izabela did a great job and I look forward to seeing something new from her. I can only hope she’ll contact me for next review ;)

In the end, I highly recommend this book to everyone.

This one was 4 bright and shiny stars from me :D
