Inevitable (Harmony #1) by Angela Graham - Review and Giveaway

Cassandra Clarke, fresh out of college and living on her own, isolates herself from the humiliation that rocked her world a year earlier.
Everything in her life is simple and easy until Logan West, the single father full of mystery and sex appeal, moves into the empty estate next door. A guy who easily attracts the attention of available women in town with one carefree smile.
Cassandra is not looking for another heartbreak and stands her ground, but finds it impossible to stay away fro...m the charming stranger when his four-year-old son, Oliver, takes an interest in her childhood tree house.
It is through Oliver where Cassandra’s eyes begin to open to a side of Logan very few people know. The rough edges and arrogant front shed away, leaving the compassionate, yet broken side of him exposed, and finally opening the possibilities to a genuine friendship.
A friendship that is constantly shaken by the undeniable connection building between them.
With temptation arising every time they are near, Cassandra fights to remind herself exactly why Logan isn’t capable of loving her the way she deserves, or is he?


We have all had a neighbour that we have lusted over - come on, admit it!!

Newly graduated teacher Cassandra learns the hard way that life will take unexpected twists and turns when her 5 year relationship breaks down.

After a year being single, she is ready to take on the world as a kindergarten teacher at the school in her home town.

What she wasn't expecting was her new neighbour to move into town and turn her world upside down.

Logan moves back to his hometown with his 4 year old son Oliver.  
Through her relationship with Oliver, a friendship builds between him and Cassandra.

Cassandra wants him, but his reputation around town soon makes her realise that she will never let it happen.  He is a man whore who will sleep with any woman with a pulse!  But she still has her fantasies.

Logan frustrated me with his ways, made me laugh, made me cry - but he also made me swoon with his interactions with Oliver, shows how much he loves him and how he would do anything to help those he cares for.  

The middle of the books was a bit slow, there was a long stretch there where Cassie and Logan just kept circling each other and nothing happened with them.  The sexual attraction between the two crackled, you could seriously cut it with a knife..... but nothing!

But the small things, that intertwine their relationship, their mutual friends, the exes, they make for a great read.

This book is a slow burn of a romance.  No wham bam thank you ma'am then building the relationship.  Logan and Cassie are normal, dealing with all the trappings of a relationship, good and bad.

Inevitable is a well written (thought "sweetheart" may be a bit overused - this could just be to me though) interesting, engaging book.

But Holy Cliffhanger, Batman!  It is a doozie!

Can't wait for book 2 to find out what happens!

I am happily married to my husband of five years, have three wonderful children and a beautiful feline companion that keeps me company during late night writing binges.

My love of reading has been life long but it was in early 2012 when I was inspired to finally put pen to paper and write my first story. Since then I haven't been able to stop, fueled purely by my passion to write a story and create characters that readers will enjoy.

New Adult romances are my go to books to read as well as to write. They are young, fresh and full of hope. What's not to love!
