Book & Author Details:
Inescapable Fate by Hanleigh Bradley
Publication date: April 14th 2018
Genres: Romantic Suspense
When Georgia Kentley breaks up with her long-term boyfriend Darren over Christmas, she really can’t wait to return to work on the 27th of December.
The excitement dies when she meets her new boss, Walker Trent. DCI Trent is a misogynistic pain in the arse. Being a young police officer, Georgia has met her fair share of men who don’t understand that she can hold her own. Every single time she has proven them wrong.
Will she be able to prove to Walker Trent just how capable she is or will she get herself into a heap of trouble, danger and chaos? And when chaos ensues who will be there to save her?
Although this book is only 170 pages long, it feels that a much longer story – in a good way! In the scant number of pages, the author has created both a decent plot and a decent relationship between Georgia and Walker.
Leaving aside his arrogance, (which worked in context), I had an issue with the persistent use of the word “bint”. As a Brit, I completely understand why Georgia was annoyed with it. Particularly as a term of endearment. And yes, I know the author is a Brit too. But for me, this was a little jarring.
That said, there was a naivete about the narrative voice which played well with this plot arc. It blended the relationship element with the suspense portion very well.
Overall, a decent start to the series.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
Hanleigh loves books more than nearly anything in the world; whether it’s reading them or writing them, Hanleigh just can’t get enough. She relishes in the way authors can create worlds with the words they put in their books.
Hanleigh absolutely adores Romantic Fiction. She first fell in love with literature as a small child reading Dr Seuss. She then fell in love with romance literature when she first read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
Hanleigh is about as English as it’s possible to be. She sometimes wishes she could live inside the world that she can create inside her mind, but since that isn’t possible she puts pen to paper and shares that world with this world instead.
