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.

My Review

“What it all comes down to, is that every person’s life is destined for a certain path. We may not realize it, especially when it’s happening, but we will end up where we’re supposed to be”

Essalin Brant is finishing her college semester up before summer break. Essalin has been asked to join her best friend Haven in New York for the summer. Haven has a very hot, wealthy and mysterious brother she will be staying with. Essalin has always had a crush on her brother although she has never met him in person. Going to New York is not going to be easy for Essalin because of her of parents. They are so strict and they pay for her apartment and education and expect her to enroll in summer classes to finish her Degree early.
Essalin and Haven decide to have a night of celebration since it’s the end of the semester. While on their night out they meet two handsome guys that they chat and have drinks with. The next morning Essalin wakes up in her apartment and has vivid memories how she got there. Feeling off she starts to search her and Haven’s apartment then realizes Haven is missing! After going to authorities and getting no help she turns to Farren Shaw. Haven’s brother.
Essalin joins Farren on a road trip to find Haven and the sparks start to fly between these two! You take a journey through this story of real life stuff that happens every day. Sadly you see what Haven endures.  Once you read it you will understand. The angst and suspense to the story is great! When you think you got it figured it out, BAM! The truth is exposed. I was surprised because I was thinking something completely different. Lol!
Not only is there suspense, twists and turns but there is a Hot and Heavy Love story. Farren the mystery, cocky, Alpha male is AMAZING!! I loved him from the start! Essalin I loved her character too. For her to be younger she was so mature and strong. As for the other characters I can’t wait to see how their stories unfold.  I was so pulled into the story and loved every minute of it!

I can’t wait for the second Book!  Mrs. Grey phenomenal job!
