Her friend, Freddie. Reed, an upperclassman who sets off butterflies in her stomach whenever he is near, but who seems to hate her, and Russell, a southern gentleman (transcribed in dialect in the book) and football player Evie is instantly at ease with.
As classes start, Evie has more things to worry about than field hockey games, homework, and stealing a Delta Fraternity trophy with her two new crazy girl buddies. Reed wants her out of Crestwood, and his scowling face is making things difficult in her Physics class. And then there's the mysterious way a cut heals overnight to perfect smoothness. Not to mention the nightmares and visions featuring her new friend Russell, blood, and the 7-Eleven where the Crestwood students buy snacks.
The best parts of this for me were all the Reed interactions. Sometimes its just fun to read the scowling-attracted-against-his-will hero with the naive heroine, and Reed and Evie certainly do have sparks.
The other good stuff were any shenanigans with her buddies Buns and Brownie; they were a hoot.
For me, this book started off slow (not in pacing or plot) but in terms of the writing itself. I was distracted in the beginning with a bit of clunky sentence construction and over-use of speech markers. However, about a third of the way through those issues mostly disappeared.
I also couldn't quite stop noticing Russell's dialect speech. It was okay in small drops, but reading it throughout the book was a bit much for me.
Still, Inescapable is quite capable of providing an entertaining, love-angst, YA experience with a touch of angel. (And most of the romance is kissing, so I could read it on the Kindle without worrying about my elementary-aged daughter getting her hands on it).
I'll definitely go on and try out the second book in the series.
This Book's Snack Rating: Like a bag of Kettle chips for the satisfying crunch of Evie and Reeds' interactions.
Side note: THIS IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING LIKE TWILIGHT. The fact that anyone compared this series to Twilight is absolutely baffling.
ON REREAD: 4.5 stars. Finally getting back to this now that the series is complete! I still absolutely adored this book and was sucked right in. I'd actually forgotten a lot of what went on. Reading some of the more negative reviews for this book, I can see why some people might not enjoy certain aspects, but none of them were button pushers for me. The only thing that aggravated me this second time around was Russell's accent....yup, could have done without that, it just made him sound like a stereotype.
She is a typical seventeen year old that basically keeps to herself. Evie is brought to college by her uncle and together they move Evie into her new life. After everything is said and done, Evie heads to orientation. When she arrives to orientation (late) she finds a seat with an old friend. While waiting for orientation to start Evie gets an eery feeling in her stomach. Something told her to look up... and when she does, she comes eye to eye with Reed Wellington. Reed acts as if she's the worst thing that has ever happened to Crestwood.
Evie is soon about to find out who her friends are when unexpected events start to happen to her. She is also about to find out what the reoccurring nightmare means. Will she choice the right people to trust? Or will everything go down the drain?
I can't wait to reread every book in this series!
