Judy & Marianne from Long and Short Reviews
True love gets undermined by betrayals, false accusations and hurt feelings but eventually triumphs with the help of an accidental dose of a lust potion and a romance book.

This is a really cute story and fun too. Sure there’s a serious side to it but the author balanced the conflict well with a good portion of optimism and sultry shenanigans. The conflict is basically about trust – how to gain it back once it was lost and what made it get lost in the first place.

Emma has deep feelings for Ryan

I listened to the audible download of this book.
By this 3rd book, the story is basically the same. the characters have simply switched names. Have a past history check, reunite check, have wild sex, check. that's about it.

Inevitable was a very enjoyable paranormal romance with a touch of mystery/suspense and a whole lot of steamy sex. Going in, I wondered if a book about a lust potion would be cheesy. It wasn't! There was actually a lot more going on in this story than what the blurb describes. Emma, a clairvoyant, and Ryan, an empath, were once partners in PARA, the Paranormal Assessment and Recovery Agency, until a reliable witness catches Ryan stealing the supernatural artifacts they study. Ryan loses his job ...more

Good quick read. Have to say, I'm a fan of the author which is the entire reason I read it. I'm glad I did though. Some steamy scenes and a pretty great plot made for an enjoyable afternoon. I consider this type of book to generally be snack food for my dietary needs but seriously... I liked the tension between the characters as they tried to work out the "whodunnit" that was going on. Great job.

I enjoyed this couple together.They worked with each other, fought with each other but loved each other soo much that they tried to forget the wrong because they see mostly right within...I would seriously love to read a series with Emma and Ryan working together in paranormal investigations.

I've enjoyed this story way more than I'd expected. That was some magical potion! Love it! It's a fast-paced, fascinating read.

A good, quick paranormal read with an intriguing twist to the relationship. Nice chemistry between the characters too.
