    Loved it

    'Stronger' by Janet Nissenson is book 6 in The "Inevitable" series. This is the story of Dante Sabattini and Cara Bregante. Dante and Cara had met earlier in this series but this can be read as a standalone book. Dante thought he was in love with Katie and was about to ask her to marry him, but she up and broke things off with him. This has left Dante feeling sour toward love. Cara has had a big crush on Dante since first meeting him but he was in a relationship and never thought she would be with him. Then Cara too has some bad relationship and swore to keep to working toward her college degree. Dante has been in the dumps since the break up but when he sees Katie seems to have moved on with her life vows to ask the next women on a date. Which turns out to be Cara. I really enjoyed their story building up to what it became. It was a hot read and hard to put down. I ended up reading this book twice.

    I’m sad to see this series come to an end. I haven’t read every book in the series yet, but I’ve been fortunate enough to read Ian/Tessa and Matt/Sasha’s story and have loved these characters. You can read these as standalones but you also get couples from each book popping up in the others enough that I feel like I know them all already. I’m going to admit here that Stronger wasn’t my favorite out of the series. That is 100% due to personal preference than having anything to do with the writing. I’m all about the Hero and love a good Cinderella type story but I personally struggle when the Hero is in love with another woman while he’s with the heroine. Dante has been dating Katie for a year now and he’s at the point where he is ready to propose. Unfortunately, Katie has had a break in her acting career and has been offered a roll on a sitcom. Looking forward to her upcoming celebrity status, she dumps Dante to move to LA and enjoy the spotlight. Dante is heartbroken. He can’t believe Katie was so callous and dropped him without looking back when he was willing to do anything to keep them together. A couple months after she leaves he starts seeing pictures of her and a different guy in each photo, living it up in LA. He realizes he needs to move on. This is where Cara comes in. Cara works for his best friend, Nick who also handles his investments. When Dante stops in to see him, he notices it’s Cara’s birthday. Cara admits she isn’t doing anything to celebrate and Dante isn’t having it and offers to take her out to dinner. Dante just wants to do something nice for Cara and has no plans to start anything with her. She’s too young for him and doesn’t see her as a women...until she shows up for the date and she’s stunning. Seeing Cara all dressed up has really transformed her appearance. Dante is immediately attracted, but still has no plans of leading her on. When she kisses him at the end of there date he doesn’t see why he can’t enjoy a friends with benefits relationship with Cara. What I thought would follow was a Cinderella type romance. Extremely rich man meets very poor, but sweet woman. He showers her with love, affection and beautiful gifts. (Insert record scratch) This is what really happens... Dante tells Cara that he would like to continue seeing her but he doesn’t want a relationship. It would be purely for benefits and they would see each other only once or twice a week. No commitment and oh yeah, let’s keep this on the down-low cause Nick won’t approve of us. I’ll give Dante this much, he would have showered Cara with gifts, but Cara has enough self worth to not take gifts from a man who only wants to see her for the “benefits”. He hides their relationship, only sees her twice a week but completely on his terms. She never meets his friends or family and doesn’t even get to know where he lives and then pretty much dumps her when his ex comes crawling back. Man, I really struggled with that. What’s kind of worse is Dante isn’t really a jerk. He sounds like one and the evidence sure is overwhelming but really his only fault is being in love with a manipulative woman and not being able to see past her to what he could have with Cara. Obviously, he comes to his senses eventually, but man, by that point I really wanted better for Cara. Cara is the only reason I even enjoyed this book. She has had so many tragic things happen to her and so many people who treated her badly that I wanted her to get Prince Charming so badly! Why would Cara accept this from Dante? She’s had a huge crush on hm since she first met him and has decided she will accept his terms just so she can spend time with him. She likes him so much she was willing to accept his crumbs. The ending soothes the ache I have for Cara and she finally gets her Prince Charming but he doesn’t really deserve her. Dante finally steps up and treats her like the princess she deserves to be treated and he knows he has a lot to make up for and he’s all in. This is a warped version of a Cinderella story but I know there are a lot readers who like the real life version and will enjoy this book. ARC provided by NetGalley.

    Surprisingly good read

    Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books! I’m really torn on this book. I want to tell you to definitely read the book but part of be is reserved about that. It’s one of those book that is a good book but also has some negative qualities. Let’s see if I can figure out how I really feel by the end of this review. First, overall, as a story, it was a good story. The plot was well written and the characters were well developed – for as much as the author wanted them to be. Details and descriptions were on par with a well written story. I applaud the author on all of the technical aspects of the book. Here is where things get a little fuzzy or hazy to me. First, and you’ll find this one my review on number five, I don’t believe these books should be listed as stand alone. They are all about each individual characters, but there always seems to be a little back story that’s missing. Since I read book 5 I thought maybe that I would be a little bit more well versed into the story. This book was easier to read having some back story, but I still think it would be easier to read all the prior books. Secondly was the way that the author chose to write the female lead character. I understand the point was for her to overcome her issues and growing as a person, I appreciate that. However, I don’t like the way that the character was “grossly overweight” because she needed to lose 20 pounds. I think that part of the story could have been written a little bit differently. Maybe I took it a little bit more personal because I’ve battled weight my entire life and maybe other readers won’t. Maybe it will help someone that is struggling but maybe it will push another person struggling that much deeper. I think it’s important to note that the character succeeded in doing what she felt she needed to do to overcome her problems. I also feel I need to note that the author deserves to write the story based on how the characters speak to her. The character was very real and had very real issues of her own that she had to deal with. So I applaud for the way the author made the character very real. I’ve had a hard time trying to figure out just why I didn’t really enjoy this book. I think it was more personal issues and I didn’t appreciate the way the author chose to handle/tackle the issues the character had. I don’t think the author deserves a bad review or negative criticism for that – so I tried very hard to be sure my rating didn’t lose any points just for that. Since there were some issues with the way the story was written for it to be a stand alone, that’s why I gave it a 4 star. While I can’t recommend this story to you, it was a well written story and the author did a good job. * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review.
