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.

Have you ever heard the saying "When it rains, it pours"? Well, that is the case when it comes to this book. In fact, this book gives that saying a whole new meaning. It was a constant storm that seemed like it would never end.
This book is not for everyone, especially not of tose who hate when the girl falls for her kidnapper. If you like an easy plot, then this book is not for you. This plot has a lot of twists and turns and kept me guessing the entire time.
I would have to say that all the drama in this book made me rate it lower. I liked the characters and the idea. It would have been better if it had been divided into a series.
