J.C Santo – Inevitable Love

jcBlurb: Sometimes the things we fight hardest against are inevitable in the end.

Hunter Stevenson wasn’t interested in wasting nights with bed warmers, he had a daughter to take care of and a life to build. Leaving behind the mother of his four year old child and her incessant partying, Hunter moves closer to his family to help provide Sawyer some stability.

Tessa Daniels didn’t share the ‘typical American dream’ like most girls. A husband, 2.5 kids and a white picket fence weren’t the things she wanted for herself. She had a plan laid out, which included a career in the Navy and being surrounded by her best friends. She was perfectly content with her carefree, fun lifestyle and her casual relationships, but all of that changed when she met him.

What neither of them expected was a nosy brother and best friend with some serious matchmaking skills. The two have an instantaneous pull towards one another, they can’t fight the spark even though they both do. Until one drunken night, Tessa throws herself at Hunter, only to face an agonizing rejection. However, Hunter’s gentlemanly facade doesn’t last with the sassy sailor girl, his alpha attitude quickly emerges in the midst of their sexual tensions.

Hunter refuses to be another one of Tessa’s casual hook-ups, and won’t allow her to run away from the idea of ‘them’. No matter how many obstacles stand in their way of a happily ever after. Now he must convince Tessa that their inevitable love is worth fighting for.

Can their newfound love survive the stress of an impending deployment and Hunter’s past pushing it’s way back into his life?

Review: It’s inevitable that you will fall in love with this book! I mean, seriously, what’s not to love – a sassy, feisty and strong willed heroine. A best friend who’d do anything for her. An adorable, grey eyed four year old princess. And a sexy, determined single father.

Hunter packs up his daughter Sawyer and leaves the drama of the baby momma behind and relocates to be closer to his twin brother Marshall and father. He’s never been one for the single life – his daughter is his world, and it’s exactly the way he likes it.

Until Tessa.

Tessa has her life planned out – no marriage, no kids, no commitments. She is happy with the flings and hanging out with her friends before she leaves for deployment as a Petty Officer.

When match maker Marshall sets the two worlds on a collision course, what happens is inevitable. Love comes fast. But can a love that is so perfect be easy when the baby momma starts calling, a deployment looming and Tessa’s reluctance to change her mind.

I loved this book and am looking forward to seeing what Santo does next.
