Ava Wellington is a busy, prestigious Seattle lawyer with her sights firmly set on her goals. She’s precise and calculated to a fault and doesn’t have time in her career for relationships, especially with a man like Jax. Neither he nor what comes with him were ever part of her plan.

Jaxon Landry is ex-military, turned chef of his own thriving restaurant and the best single dad he knows how to be. He lives and breathes for the happiness of his two little girls. For the past two years he’s lived in a dreary world of regret, loss, and disappointment. That is until he meets Ava. He never thought he’d see color again in his dreams, much less in a woman.

Can Jax show Ava that she is more than checklists and goals?

Can Ava keep her promise even when she’s handed the golden opportunity to her ultimate goal. Will she risk love over her career?

Family is a feeling, not a definition. There are no words for it. It’s a feeling in your gut, in your heart, and in your soul.

There’s nothing you can do to stop true love, it’s unavoidable.

There is a reason why I love this series and Annalisa’s writing.  She knows how to create a story that is heartwarming and full of emotion without a lot of excess drama.  Her stories are always to the point and a quick read, but they know how to pack a punch.


Unavoidable Love is book 5 in her Running Into Love Series and it is just as wonderful as the other 4 books in this series.  It can be read as a standalone because it is a new storyline with the focus on a new couple, but this is the type of series that as a reader I would suggest and recommend that they be read in order.  Each of the previous characters are present in this book, so it would be helpful to know each of their back stories.  Now don’t get me wrong….Annalisa does a fabulous job filling in the spaces and how all the characters are interconnected, so if you don’t want to read all the previous books it isn’t necessary.


Ava and Jax’s story had a little bit of everything in it….there was humor, romance, sex, drama and even some heart stopping moments.  This book will grab you from the first page and not let go until the end.  I love that Annalisa always sets up the next book at the end of the book before it.  So the reader always gets a sneak peek of the next book and who the couple is going to be.


Ava and Jax were wonderful characters.  Their’s is a story of loss, healing and moving on.  Both Ava and Jax have lost someone very dear to them and struggle to move forward.  Jax lost his wife very suddenly and tragically and is left to raise their 2 girls on his own.  He has slipped into a world that lacks any color or life….That is until he meets Ava.  Ava lost her dad pretty suddenly and tragically as well and hasn’t been able to forgive herself for some things that were said or weren’t said before he died.  So to honor him she makes a promise to lighten her work load and focus on her personal life.  She has always had a goal to be the youngest partner at her law firm and she finally has a chance for that to happen, so she makes a promise to herself that once she succeeds she will lighten her work load…..but Jax and fate won’t let that happen 😉  From here we get a sweet love story about two people who are trying to heal and move on with their lives.  Ava and Jax are perfect for each other (In my opinion)

I am an “Indie” contemporary romance author. I live in California with my husband and two teenage boys. I absolutely love being a stay at home mom.

I never liked reading as a kid. I only started reading romance novels in the past few years. My Kindle and I are inseparable now. A thought occurred to me in December of 2012 that maybe I could write a romance novel. So I went to work with the encouragement of my husband and my sister-in-law. It didn’t take long to figure out that I really enjoy writing.

Today I am a self-published author and it has been an amazing journey.
