Soon-to-be college freshman Evie Claremont had hoped that once she'd arrived on Crestwood's campus, the nightmare that she'd been having would go away. It hasn't. She may be an inexperienced seventeen-year-old, but she's grounded . . . sane. She looks for rational explanations to even the strangest circumstances. Since meeting sophomore Reed Wellington, however, nothing makes any sense. Whenever he's near, she feels an attraction to him-a magnetic kind of force pulling her towards him. Unfortunately, Reed acts as if Evie's the worst thing that has ever happened to Crestwood . . . or him. But for some reason every time she turns around he's there, barging into her life. What is the secret that he's keeping from her? Evie's hoping that it's anything but what she suspects: that he's not exactly normal . . . and neither is she. So, maybe Crestwood won't be the making of her, but it could be the breaking of her. Evie's now left to wonder if the dark future her dream is foretelling is . . . inescapable.… (lisätietoja)

Ok... This isn't my normal book. I came across this one while searching for a book from my late twenties early thirties...And still can't find but this one met some of the search nodes...

I now understand the wrong use of the word "y'all" that one reviewer mentioned... Honestly, if you are going to use slang, you may want to research the correct usage of the words.

I liked this book enough that I will likely read book two...But I'd like to go on record of being team Feed even if he is an arrogant jackass, lol. ( )

Ok, so the instant attraction thing was a bit odd, but really I got past it pretty easily and the story was intriguing. Its still pretty typical YA fare-which is totally good with me! I loved Hush, Hush, and this reminded me a bit of that. ( )

This book is just okay. Some parts didn’t really add up to me and there seemed to be a lot of extraneous info that didn’t really add to the story. I found the ending a bit rushed as we’ve spent so many chapters with a slow build, I think the ending could have given us more.

One thing that really bothered me was how the dialogue was written. Overuse of dialogue tags disrupted the flow a bit but sometimes the dialogue itself was unnecessary.

Overall I didn’t hate the story and I found the premise interesting enough to continue. ( )

I never know what to expect when I decide to read a book. I know that I always hope that I will be able to get through it. And oh did get through Inescapable. It was one of those books that surprised me how much I liked it. Wasn't sure at first if I would enjoy it but not too far in did the book had me laughing, it was surprisingly funny. I think that was one of the aspects that made this such an intriguing story, interesting characters with personality. I also liked the angel concept, I'm beginning to really like the angel genre, haven't read much in that area and have been lucky to have liked the few I did read.

On Genevieve Claremont's first day at Crestwood College she realizes that her college experience is not going to be a normal one after a run-in with Reed Wellington. Reed warns her to leave campus now and go somewhere else but she is confused why he wants her to leave and why does she feels so drawn to him. Every time she gets near him she feels butterflies in her stomach. I liked Evie, she was smart and think quick on her feet. Even though Reed was a big bully, and completely had her scared she didn't let him intimidate her. She wanted answers for why he wants her to leave so badly and what about his strange abilities. Evie seemed to go with the flow of things, she was open to what might be happening to her or who or what Reed might be. Even though she didn't take the dangers to her life seriously at first.

Oh I thought Reed was a jerk but I just knew he would come around once he realized how clueless Evie about who she is. And Evie is also a very convincing talker. She clearly had all the guys in her life wrapped around her finger. It was shocking and sweet to see stoic Reed become putty in her hands.

I would really love it if I could just hear Russel's twang out loud in real life. Russel had me right away, he was the ultimate gentleman, real southern charm and all. He and Evie seem to bond immediately, which I later found out there was a reason for that.

As for Alfred, or Freddie, as Evie nicknamed him, I pictured him through her eyes as a shy, geeky, excited kid. That was the impression I got about him at first. As their friendship grew, Evie saw him as her twin brother because they are so similar in their ideas. Later on Freddie starts to come through as kinda of a cool laid back guy, and perhaps a looker and no geek whatsoever. I should have took more notice how Evie saw him cause I would have probably seen that coming. And that is the secrets to Freddie's true personality. He was a shocker, really didn't see that coming.

I like the female power and support in this story, Evie was very lucky in the friend department. Her girlfriends, Buns, and Brownie were so cool and supportive, and maybe a little too peppy. Don't ask me their real names, I would have to go back through the book to find that. Nicknames were very popular in this story.

At first I though the writing felt geared toward a younger reader but as the book progressed the dialogue for the characters seemed age appropriate for them. I wasn't expecting to have some many laugh out loud moments, the dialogue was quick witted and amusing. Amy A. Bartol wrote a very intriguing story with real characters that jumps off the page. Really great storytelling. ( )
