Book Review – Serendipity (Inevitable #1) by Janet Nissenson




Was meeting again an unfortunate twist of fate? Or was it just serendipity?

Julia McKinnon was convinced she’d found the one – the man of her dreams, the most seductive, experienced lover she’d ever known – and the night they’d spent together in New York was the stuff erotic fantasies were spun from. But with the dawn of a new day came only heartache and betrayal, and her dreams were snuffed out like so much fairy dust. 

Nathan Atwood felt like the lowest sort of life form after seducing the incredibly beautiful girl he met in New York, only to break her tender heart with the confession that he was already involved with someone else. Leaving Julia was the hardest thing he’d ever done, and the memory of their passionate night together haunted his dreams for months afterwards.

Now fate has brought them together again, and they are forced to work alongside each other. Will Julia be able to put aside the feelings she still has for her handsome boss and forge a new life for herself in San Francisco? And how long will Nathan be able to resist the gorgeous woman he’s never really stopped thinking about or wanting?


Damn this book was hot! It totally deserves the 5 stars I’m giving it! I had such a hard time putting this book down, from every steamy sex scene to every emotionally charged gut wrenching page I was captivated and ended up finishing it in a day. It’s boy meets girl with a painful twist. There were so many times I wanted to break down and cry with Julia, reach through the pages and smack Nathan upside the head, and hang out with Travis and Anton. I loved that this book made me FEEL what the characters were feeling, that it was easy to step into their shoes, the jealousy, the love the heart break, not to mention all of those deliciously steamy hot, hot, hot sex scenes made for a roller coaster of a ride for the reader. So many times when reading a book I feel like the author rushes through something to get to the good parts, this book was definitely an exception to that rule. The build up of the relationship between Julian and Nathan was intense, and although you had to question Nathan’s sanity it was realistic. The culmination of the situation between Julia and Nathan and Nathan and Cameron was fascinating and a little heart breaking. Cameron has to be one of the best villains I’ve come across in awhile, not because she was super evil but because she was super selfish. Please, for the love of God, can someone send me some whatever it is that gets Julia and Nathan’s libido going? I’m pretty sure I thought my e-reader was going to melt when I was reading a couple of times. For a debut book I have to say that Janet Nissenson got it RIGHT on the very first try! This book was amazingly well written, I’d have never guessed that this was her first or even 5th book. I’m looking forward to reading what she writes next.
