Title: Inevitable Detour (Inevitability #1) 
Author: S.R. Grey 

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.

Book Page: Goodreads

Inevitable Detour is a very refreshing read that will make your head spin and your heart break.

It is full of surprises, suspense and mystery!

What surprised me was the ‘philosophical’ aspect of it. Our girl, Essa, changed throughout the book or rather, she became who she always was. She found the strength and courage to do what she wanted no matter the consequences. This inevitable detour gave that to her. However, the author’s approach to this matter was really fascinating. Small details, like Essa sitting outside a classroom and hearing what she somewhat needed to hear, and the Essa’s constantly evolving thinking process were absolutely fascinating to me. It was quite special!

I also loved the way Essa and Farren’s relationship was created. Slowly. Through respect. With patience. With longing. It seemed like they instantly hit it off, but that was through small actions, some stares. And of course, the interesting and gradual get-to-really-know-you talk they had in the car. They discovered each other first and then they progressed to the next stage. I also loved the lack of labels in their relationships, ‘one night stand’ ‘relationship’ ‘strings’ etc. They just went with it. They followed their hearts and let their minds take second place.

The way the mystery was presented was also very good. I found that the author’s approaches are very special and I LOVED that! Nothing was too obvious and nothing was clear. The story had some twists and a really nice highlight towards the end.

However, there were some points where I was left little bewildered, because I felt some really bad and really significant events didn’t have the attention they deserved. This event was lacking the heavy pressure I think it should have and thus lacking the appropriate reaction from one specific character. However, I believe this was the case, because the book concentrated solely on Essa. I just feel it should have happened differently, but that doesn’t mean anything more than that. The book is really good and nothing can change that.

In conclusion, the book is really good and I enjoyed it. I strongly recommend it, as it feels like fresh air. It’s different, well written and captivating!

So, 4 Gorgeous Stars go to Inevitable Detour!

I can’t wait for the second book!!!!!
