Max Bennett is a successful man. His analytical mind has taken his family’s company to the next level. Outside the office, Max transforms from the serious business man into someone who is carefree and fun. Max is happy with his life and doesn’t intend to change it, even though his mother keeps asking for more grandchildren. Max loves being an uncle, and plans to spoil his nieces rotten.
But when a chance encounter reunites him with Emilia, his childhood best friend, he starts questioning everything. The girl he last saw years ago has grown into a sensual woman with a smile he can’t get out of his mind.
Emilia Campbell has a lot on her plate, taking care of her sick grandmother. Still, she faces everything with a positive attitude. When the childhood friend she hero-worshipped steps into her physical therapy clinic, she is over the moon. Max is every bit the troublemaker she remembers, only now he has a body to drool over and a smile to melt her panties. Not that she intends to do the former, or let the latter happen.
They are both determined not to cross the boundaries of friendship…at first. But as they spend more time together, they form an undeniable bond and their flirty banter spirals out of control.
Max knows Emilia is off-limits, but that only makes her all the more tempting. Besides, Max was never one to back away from a challenge.
When their chemistry becomes too much to resist and they inevitably give in to temptation, will they risk losing their friendship or will Max and Emilia find true love?
“You know what they’re saying about plenty of fish being in the sea…Yeah, and I’m living in the desert.”
“Better to go after who you want than carry a torch forever, wondering if it would work out.”
“It’s different now, Max. We’re dating. You’re supposed to think I fart rainbows and never have morning breath.”
“I’ve never understood the concept of someone glowing until now. I must be losing my mind. Maybe that’s why they say madly in love.”
This book was beyond adorable. It’s totally a NSFW but still adorable as can be. The story follows Max and Emilia, childhood friends who lost contact with one another and who get reunited with one another in a chance encounter. While they both initially agree they just want to be friends and pick up where they left off, we all know that isn’t going to happen.
As the story progresses we get to see both Max and Emilia go from reconnecting as friends to recognizing that they have feelings for each other and all the emotions and drama that go along with it. I really like that each story that Hagen is writing for this series has different aspects and every character is so dynamically different. I also think it’s really interesting how Hagen keeps giving us more and more insights and backstories into the Bennett family as we continue the journey throughout the series.
I don’t think there was anything that I didn’t like about this book. It’s a great, quick read full of romance and cute little moments. There is a part in there that made my heart hurt (not telling you which part) but don’t worry, Hagen made it all better by the end of the book. Your Inescapable Love continues to really tie The Bennet Family series together and I can’t wait to see what Hagen has in store for us in the books to come.
Overall, I have nothing negative to say about this book, it’s exactly what I expected it to be and wasn’t disappointed. Romance books like The Bennett Family series are my late night guilty pleasure when I want to get lost in a story and stay up until the wee hours of the morning reading them. If you enjoy the same thing then this is the book series for you. Until next time, happy reading!
