Darcey Callahan can’t help but fall in love with Brad Daniels, but she has no idea what kind of terrifying consequences their relationship holds. Brad works for a mysterious agency with a top-secret mission. He is called to Peru to investigate the allegation that someone is tampering with his project. During his investigation, he loses contact with Darcey for an extensive amount of time, and her anxiety overwhelms her. She flies out to Peru to find Brad, but instead finds herself kidnapped and sold into a human trafficking ring by the very men that Brad had set out to apprehend. Suddenly, Brad is the one that has to save her. He’ll have to work fast if he wants to rescue her before the remnants of her past life slip completely out of her grasp.

Inescapable isn’t a typical romance story, and the plot is anything but predictable. I expected her to be pining for Brad in her cell, praying that he would show up and whisk her away from the clutches of her kidnappers, but an accident leaves her with only broken memories. Now, not only does Brad have to rescue her, but he has to steal her heart back from the man who cared for her when no one else did, and force her to remember the love they once shared together.

The first part of the novel is mostly focused on Brad’s secret project. I feel that this section of the story drags on a little, but it also provides valuable insight about his colleagues. Even those closest to Brad have ulterior motives, and he is completely unaware that he cannot trust anyone around him. At the resolution of the novel, it is still not made clear why certain characters purposely sabotage Brad’s project, and I would be interested to learn more about their motives in the sequel.

Many stories revolving around human trafficking are often packed with crude and sexual scenes, but this isn’t the case in Inescapable. There are only a few instances in the story that deem it suitable for a more mature audience. I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to enjoy the story without being overwhelmed by vulgar scenes.

I believe Inescapable deserves 4 out of 4 stars. It is well-edited and resolves in a way that leaves the reader wanting more. I would recommend it to anyone looking for an unpredictable romance packed with suspense and mystery.

Sounds quite interesting to add to my bookshelf as "want to read". However, I noticed the review contains spoiler alerts.

The way it's been reviewed is not only remarkable but also 'inescapable'. I have a feeling I'll be liking Brad's character and already wondering about both the villain, if he's going to give Brad a tough time and out-think him & the female protagonist Darcey, as to why she feels like giving up on the only love of her life. Thanks for this amazing review! Added to my bookshelf as 'Want to read'.
