Book Synopsis:

A ruined wedding. A star athlete. Paparazzi.
And… a secret baby.

What could go wrong?

Dumped at the altar…
Betrayed by my maid of honor…

Still reeling from the shock of my life, when an old crush sweeps me off my feet and onto the sticky, hard surface of an empty bar counter.

Was I destined to be a single mom, trapped in a small town, or would my well-muscled hero come to my rescue?

My review:

It is the day of Kyra’s wedding and her husband to be, David, has just told her that he couldn’t marry her. After running to her hotel room, in a reasonable state of extreme upsetness, she texts her best friend and maid of honor, Tam.

Tam shows up a few minutes after the text, and before Kyra could start saying “Why did he do this to me,” she reveals that she and David were together, and she was the reason David canceled the wedding, which leaves Kyra in a state of disbelief. So, what does she do, she starts drinking and ignoring everyone who comes to her door except for Jones.

Jones is a football star and happens to be David and Kyra’s friend from high school. He was supposed to be David’s best man but, like everyone, was left stunned when David called the wedding off at last-minute and left with Tam. Jones is concerned for Kyra and suggests that she goes to where the reception was going to be held and have a few drinks.

That ended up with Kyra and Jones having sex on the bar and then moving to her hotel room. He left Kyra in the morning with a note, and she moves on with her life. She has gotten over David and Tam’s betrayal and Jones’s not such a smooth move the morning after.

Then she realizes that she hasn’t had her period and she is always like clockwork. So she goes, buys a pregnancy test, and takes it. Guess what, she’s pregnant, and Jones is the father.

She contacts Jones intending to tell him. Instead, they spend a week screwing each other’s brains out. Then, in a fit of anger, after Jones said to her that he was seeing someone else, she tells him. He doesn’t take the news very well and she heads home intending to be a single mother.

I loved Kyra. I wondered how she didn’t just go nutso on her scumbag ex and her ex-best friend. I really don’t because if it were me, I would have killed them. Well, I wouldn’t have gone that far but I would have at least beaten Tam down. I do think that her sleeping with Jones was part of the shock of what happened, at first. And her reaction when she found out she was pregnant, I think every single woman who has had an unplanned pregnancy can relate.

Jones came across as a tool until the restaurant scene. I thought that he wasn’t going to step up by his reaction when Kyra told him that she was pregnant. But, thinking about it, how would you react if you were told by a girl that you had just spent the week having awesome sex with that she was pregnant because the condom failed.

The sex between Jones and Kyra was off the wall hot. And it seems that Kyra was into having sex in public places.

The end of the book was great. I do love HEA’s .

I would give Unexpected an Adult rating. There is sex. There is language. There is mild violence. I would recommend that no one under the age of 21 read this book.

I would reread Unexpected. I would recommend it to family and friends.

**I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book**
