Inevitable Love (Navy Love, #1) by JC Santo ~ BLOG TOUR

Inevitable Love 
(Navy Love, #1)
JC Santo

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 by: Tatia 

I took a chance reading Inevitable Love. I didn't even know the author's name when I agreed to read it, but none of that matters. What matters is that I loved it.
I say that any book that can make me cry is a great book in my eyes. I cried twice. You mix kids in with all of the heart-stopping, romantic moments and I'm a big ball of tears.
loved Tessa's character. She is such a fun, vibrant, kickass woman. She knew what she wanted, and a long term relationship was not it. She's having fun. She's got her best friend, Marshall, a good group of friends who are as close-knit as you can get, and her job in the navy. Then walks in the stunning Hunter.
Hunter is ready for a new start. He's going out to Virginia to see his twin brother and dad. He's got his little girl by his side. Sawyer keeps him on his toes. That little girl is so fun, loving, and has the biggest heart. She has lots of love to give! Hunter knows that and wants her to be around more family.  I'm sure it's hard being a single parent, but he takes it in stride and does the best he can. As a guy, he's confident, controlling where it matters, and looking for someone to spend his free time with. He's not into one night stands or short term relationships. Of course he's interested in the one girl who only wants flings.
I enjoyed every bit of this story. I fell in love with Tessa, Marshall, Hunter, and especially Sawyer. She could melt the blackest of hearts in a matter of seconds. It was a fun book that had me laughing and becoming misty eyed with a few tears slipping free. It had everything. The flow didn't seem rushed or like it dwelled too much on one subject. You get enough information about everyone to be satisfied and ready for more. This is a story I could have read forever. You don't find too many like it. A wonderful story of a single father looking for love for him and his daughter. JC Santo is an author I'll be keeping my eyes open for more from. Fantastic read!

The characters in this book!  They are written so well it just blows me away.  I feel like I know them personally.  I want to be Marshall's best friend, I want to baby sit Sawyer.  I would love to double date with Hunter and Tessa.  They go beyond characters in a book and I feel that is a sign of truly good writing.  When you feel as if your reading about old friends.

This book is a military romance but with a twist.  I adored the fact that it was Tessa who was enlisted.  You rarely see that in books and it was a refreshing and welcome change.  She was also active military so you got to see her family and friends struggle emotionally with deployment.  I fell like this added an extra layer to this book.

I was engaged and excited about this one as soon as I picked it up.  I could barely put it down I was so eager to see what would happen next.  I can't wait to see what JC has in store for us in the next book.

4.5 Stars 

JC Santo a true southern girl born and raised a in Central Texas. When she met her husband who is in the U.S. Navy they had to relocate to Norfolk, Virginia. That's where she has been for the past 5 years being a wife and stay at home mom to 3 boys. In the rare occurrences she gets free time it's usually spent reading a good book. Three things she will never turn away cupcakes, tattoos and arbor mist! Lol you have to sound like Morgan Freeman!
