Harper Jameson, had built the necessary walls to keep her heart safe. Never again would she allow herself to become weak and vulnerable. Confident and full of attitude. A mask she wore that many fell for…
Except Easton Black.
He was equally confident, cocky and knew what he wanted. Determined. Things he wanted rarely escaped his grasp. He was immune to the façade Harper had created.
She was Intriguing.
It was Inevitable and Harper could sense that there was no way out. Easton Black would no doubt be the man who could change everything.
People aren’t always as strong as they appear to be on the outside…
I have been waiting to read Harper’s story since I fell in love with her in LOVING COLT. Harper is a strong, smart and sassy young woman who has a wicked sense of humour and absolutely no verbal filter, so if she thinks it, she says it and makes no apologies about it. She also has a quick wit and she doesn’t take crap from anyone, especially from her protective older brother. She believes in punishment for bad behaviour, and if someone crosses the line, she has no problem telling them off or making them pay. Someone like that needs a strong man, one that will not only be able to handle her attitude but can also give it back. Anything less and she’ll get bored and walk all over them.
Easton is that man and he did not disappoint. He held his own against Harper and never backed down from her. He didn’t back down from Jett either when Jett realised he had a thing for his little sister. I’ve read so many books where the brother’s best friend shies away from his feelings out of loyalty to the brother. Or they date in secret and when the brother finds out, he goes ballistic and beats up said best friend. I liked that neither of those situations happened here. Easton became attracted to Harper, spoke up about his feelings and stood his ground with Jett, who understood that Harper was an adult and as long as she wasn’t going to be just another fling, gave Easton his blessing.
Only one thing disappointed me with INEVITABLE and it’s the revelation that Harper has a secret and painful past that turned her into the woman she is today. I loved her snarkiness, her quick wit, her dry and dirty humour. Apparently all of these things that I loved about her were just one big barrier to protect her from getting hurt again. Why did she have to have some terrible secret to have made her that way? Why couldn’t the things that made her awesome just be because she’s awesome?
I like that Ms Harms puts little updates about previous couples in her books. In this case, we got an update on Quinn and Jett’s relationship and how their HEA is going.
