Ex-Marine and former combat trainer, Trent Reed has been shot at, he’s been in a coma and placed in war zones behind enemy lines most of his Marine career, but when his best friend calls for a favor, he is faced with one of the hardest decisions of his life—to be the Best Man. His turbulent past with races other than his own have him at odds with his best friend and the man’s new African American fiancée, and not helping matters is Trent’s crazy girlfriend who is on him about getting married too. When Trent accepts the job as Best Man against his better judgment, it’s done with a heavy heart and the understanding that his friend is soon to be out of his life—for good.

Teal Lofton is finally warming up to her best friend’s fiancé and ex convict when she learns that they are expecting just a few short months before their wedding. If that’s not enough, as Maid of Honor, Teal had to put up with budget issues, a sobbing and hormonal bride, juggling her Katie’s secret pregnancy and not to mention, Trent, Logan’s jerk of a best friend and Best Man who she is strangely, yet wildly attracted to. When the shit hits the fan during the bachelor party and Trent disappears with the wedding rings, Teal flips her lid and chases him off into the night to fix yet again, another problem, but a tragic accident sets Trent and Teal on an inevitable course of self discovery and passion like they’ve never experienced before.

Inevitable was such a good read! I pretty much think that all of Inger Iversen’s books are great but I liked this one even a little bit more than Incarcerated. It had Teal and Trent as main characters. I loved them in Incarcerated + Katie and Logan make a few appearances in this book. I was really happy to find out how things were going for them.

Teal was is of my favorite characters. I love everything about her from her beautiful name (I seriously love the name!) to her awesome personality and the way she made sure her best friend’s wedding would go perfectly. Although it didn’t go exactly as planned.

And then we have Trent. I definitely didn’t approve the way he faked being a racist but he really went through a lot and he came a long way. The story is divided in three parts. The first part is about Trent’s past. After reading about him in Incarcerated I really wanted to know where he came from and what happened to him to make him be like he was. And knowing his story and past made me feel like I actually got to know him better, which was definitely necessary. 
I really liked Trent’s  and the way he fell for Teal. They had chemistry right off the bat and I loved the way they bickered. 

And the romance? Let me tell you, it really was panty dropping hot. There were definitely some real sexy scenes between Teal and Trent that made me go like, daaaamn! 

But my favorite part of the book was the writing.Some scenes were so beautiful to me. It got to the point where I didn’t even want to get up to make dinner, I was that caught up in it. 

Incredibly sexy with awesome characters and well-written , Inevitable: Love and War was an amazing read! I could barely stop reading and I loved getting to know Teal and Trent more, while also get a glimpse into the life of Katie and Logan. It’s honestly one of my favorite books of 2015 so far. I can’t wait to read more about all these characters.


The first time Teal had let him touch her had sent him into a downward spiral and he was still freefalling, wondering about his landing. Would it be on his feet or his face?

“I know it’s been awhile for you. Trust me when I say I am going to give it to you, but I want you to let me know if I do something you don’t want, or don’t like. If I do anything that hurts, just tell me to stop.”
“Goddamn… what are you planning to do, fuck me or operate on me?” she asked.

If I wasn’t attracted to you, I wouldn’t fuck you. This isn’t something I’m doing out of pity. I’m horny, you’re horny, and I want to taste every damned inch of you before plopping your little ass on my dick and watching you ride me. This isn’t happening for any reason other than the fact I want you exactly how you are.”
