The death of a friend’s father, though, has her questioning whether or not running away from her past is what’s best for her future. Add sexy Chris Baker in the mix and she’s even more unsure.

Hell, he thinks she’s too skinny now. He knows she’s hiding something, too, but when he pushes the issue, she pushes him away. He tries not to care; she only wants a summer fling, right? But when her life is threatened, he realizes he may just be in love with her… and then he learns her secret.
Can they find love together before it’s too late?

My Review

Before you read Inescapable Desire, you MUST read Irresistible Desire. Make sure you have plenty of time because you are not going to want to put either one down until you’re finished. And please, do not throw your Kindle 😉

Inescapable Desire was an emotional roller-coaster. I fell in love with sexy country boy badass Kayden all over again. Any man willing to fight for his woman is definitely swoon worthy. Danielle Jamie’s story telling is so raw, so deep, that you experience it all for yourself. You’ll get mad, You’ll feel heartbroken. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll even blush.

The strength of Kayden and Savannah’s love is so absolute they can overcome anything. They will face a great deal of challenges in this book and at times I wondered how they would make it through.

There IS a huge, shocking cliff hanger at the end of Inescapable Desire (hence the warning about not throwing your Kindle) that will leave you reeling. Kayden’s POV completely broke my heart.

I will be sitting on pins and needles waiting to see what happens in the next book! A job well done Ms. Jamie!!!

My Interview with author Danielle Jamie

About the Book:
Where did the idea for this delightful little series come from?
I love country music and southern boys ha! So new I wanted to write a story combining the two. I’ve loved the name Savannah since I was pregnant for both daughters. Never used it so thought well now I get to! Same with Kayden lol.

I’ve always loved the State of Texas since I was a child, and wanted to write a story with a Sexy Oil Tycoon who had many layers to him. To everyone looking from the outside in they would see him as just one dimensional, but once you get to know him you see he’s really sweet and romantic. He just puts on this bad boy persona to protect himself.

With Savannah I wanted to write about a daughter to a country music duo who loves music, but not into the business herself. She has the talent to be but chose a different path in her life. I loved the idea of showing her with someone else and making us watch and root for her and Kayden to come together, not just rush it in beginning and not let fans connect or feel everything between them.

TEXAS ROCKS!!

Are any of the characters based on real life people?
Savannah in looks and personality is based off of me, just a little taller, b/c I’m 4’11 seriously, it SUCKS so I lived vicariously through her. Getting to be taller, bigger boobs haaa and live somewhere you don’t get 3 feet of snow in the winter! lol

What has been the hardest part of writing this book and this series?
My self doubting would be the hardest thing and my worst demon. There are sooo many great books out there I have to compete with. To top it off there has been a huge jump I’ve noticed in love stories similar to what I’ve wanted to write for a long time. I was afraid it would seem familiar to other books. I was really worried people wouldn’t like it.

If your book was made into a move, who would play who?
I would love to play Savannah, but if not I would like to be a waitress at Drip!

What are your plans for future installments in this series?
Right now I just finished writing the notes for Book 3. It’s sad to think it’s the last story, but I’m excited to write their HEA.  I am currently writing POV’s for Kayden from Book 1 & 2 and putting them on my blog. A little treat for the fans to hold them over until Book 3.

About the Author:
Where/when do you do your best writing?
At night when kids are in bed I write a lot. I also try to write early in the morning when Finn’s sleeping and the girls are off to school. I run a boutique so time management is important. I write one of those 2-3x a day in between making bows LOL

Are you a word counter or a story flows kind of writer?
I don’t pay attention to word count until the very end. The way I do it is I set out what I want to cover in the book. Book 1 it was 18 chapters and I got everything in it I wanted. Book 2 was 20 chapters but then a Bonus 17 pages from Kayden’s POV because I wanted to get everything into the book I had set out to write. Book 3 I predict will be longer because there is a lot to cover.

On a scale of 1-10, how nervous were you when you clicked ‘submit’ on your first book? OMG 11 haaaa!!! I was almost in a full on panic attack. My friends all read and loved it but I said you are my friends so you could say it just to be polite ha. When the first few reviews and blogs said they love it, I about fell outta my chair!

How did you overcome your nerves?
I set a goal in high school that I would be a famous author one day. But then kids came and life happened. I didn’t think it was realistic and gave up on it. Then I started hearing about all the options to self publish. I said i gotta take the leap, push aside my fears and just go for it! If everyone hates it I can at least say I did it.

What advice would you give to aspiring authors?
Never think any dream is to big. You dream it hard enough it will turn into a reality. Best thing is get good Beta Readers who will give good feedback. Book 1 would have been totally different if it wasn’t for my friend Victoria Murphy. She said show Logan more, let characters get to know him so when he cheats we all feel it. It was the best advice I ever got. It paid off because fans LOVED IT.

About The Woman:
Favorite Color?
Hot Pink

Favorite Love Song?
All time Favorite is Tonic- If You Could Only See. But a close second is Blake & Miranda’s God Gave me You.

What do you listen to when your working out?
Right now my favorite work out song is Thrift Shop by Macklemore. It has such a great beat and just gets you pumped up!

Tea or Coffee?
Coffee during the day a MUST have! But I enjoy tea at night with honey.

What is your biggest fear?
Well one of my biggest is spiders. Living with a husband who refuses to go near them I’ve had to conquer that fear. So now I am the only spider killer in this house. My other is heights. I am so bad I can’t even climb monkey bars LMAO

Tell me something nobody else knows about you
That is so hard. I keep getting this questions and never know what to answer. I’m a pretty open book. But I guess the only thing is- everyone in my town see’s me as this little quiet thing. My close friends know truth is that if I’m comfortable around you I will talk your ear off. My childhood nickname was Mouth (lmao) because I talked SO MUCH! Another would be that I have a very sexy/kinky imagination, haaa. No one knew until I wrote Irresistible Desire
