Self-PublishedSince 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
As a teenager Chris' mother passes away. At the time of her death she was dating a verbally abusive, controlling man who shattered her to pieces. Chris, sixteen at the time, sets out to seek his revenge on Kevin, who he believes is the reason his mother is dead. As Chris' grows older, Kevin and Chris become business rivals and Kevin is close to losing it all. Chris finds himself reveling from the situation until he finds out Kevin may have found a way to save his business.
More determined than ever to cause Kevin pain, Chris kidnaps Kevin's step-daughter, Julia. What he intended was to cause Kevin the hurt that he had caused Chris to live with for years, but instead he finds himself drawn to Julia. Despite the fact that he is drawn to her, he hates her at the same time and her feelings reflect his. Over the time she is held hostage though, Chris and Julia begin to have a sick sort of fascination with one another which leads to an unhealthy, destructive kind of love.
Monick weaves an interesting tale. Well-written and developed, Monick has characters that develop gradually through the course of the book, thrilling plot twists, and controlling, passionate men. Evitable Destiny is one of the first books I have read where I started off disliking characters only to come to love them by the time the book has finished. Captivating from beginning to end, Evitable Destiny takes you on a ride.
