Friends?
Lovers?
Both?
For Kora and Tariq, those lines have been blurred for a long time. Every time clarity seems to be within reach, something shifts, and in a single moment, focus is lost. Once again, they’re in limbo.
Between them, there is only one secret, with the power to permanently alter their relationship. For good or bad, neither of them knows – nor are they willing to take that risk.
Through the pain of past tragedies and the pressure of current dramas, they always find solace in each other’s arms. Inescapably connected by the interminable bond of friendship, Tariq and Kora navigate family, life, and love, searching for separate answers to a problem that has only has one, unavoidable solution.

So I was scrolling through Twitter recently and came across a sample from a Christina C. Jones recently released project, titled Inevitable Addiction. As I was reading, I realized that I have never read the Inevitable series by CCJ.

Well, honey, I like to rectify my mistakes as soon as possible so you already know what I did. If you guessed that I moseyed my way to Amazon and downloaded Inevitable Conclusions then you’re goddamn right.

Let’s get into this book now, shall we?

For friends of Tariq and Kora, them getting together is an inevitable conclusion.

These two have been friends for over thirty years and are closer than any two best friends can be. They even dated a few years prior but it was wrong timing; they were both too young, too volatile, and simply not ready.

Oh, did I mention that they were friends with benefits? The BEST benefits? Sure, when they were in respective relationships, they cooled off and remained platonic. However, with time they always found their way back to each other.

We meet Tariq and Kora in their late thirties, she a recently divorced former Broadway Starlet now theatre director, and he an ex-NFL player turned financial advisors. Both are pussyfooting around their real feelings for each other.

As much as they love each other, they’re not willing to try a relationship again. They’re better off as just friends. Or are they? Denial is a beast and when the past comes knocking on the door and a newcomer thrown into the mix, they’re forced to come to the realization that they only fit with each other.

Tariq and Kora’s chemistry is fantastic to witness. They are genuinely great friends; they know each other’s worst secrets, share in their past mistakes and mesh well together. Their passion is undeniable and they have never found the sort of passion with anyone else that they find in each other’s arms. That sensual familiarity tends to be missing in a lot of friends to lovers novels and one of the reasons I liked this so much.

 

There was a great romance, passion, well-developed characters, and drama; I am a happy bee. Now I’m off to read Inevitable Seductions. I’ll be back.
