My body isn’t used to this much alcohol. The few glasses of wine I normally drink don’t have me in the middle of a dance “orgy” without remembering how I got there. Sweat is dripping down my neck and tickling the space between my breasts. After the third round of drinks, bought by three different men just wanting to get in my pants, I feel relaxed yet out of control. Noelle is nowhere to be found and in my drunken state I’m not even the least bit concerned about it. The music has taken over my body and I can feel myself letting go of all the stress and anxiety that Robert has caused me. I don’t care who is watching because at this moment I feel like the sexiest person in here.
With my eyes closed I rub my hands along my hips all the way to my hair,
pulling it off my neck into a makeshift ponytail. The beat of the music moves
through me like an electric wave. When a cool puff of air passes over the back
of my neck it feels like water in the Sahara. Larger hands than I’ve ever felt
before unexpectedly come around my waist and pull me back into a rock hard
chest. My breathing becomes more ragged as the mystery man whispers in my ear.
“Are you hot, baby?” He asks, his hot breath sending shivers down my
My senses are on high alert and despite the fact that I haven’t a clue
what he looks like, those four words turn me on instantly. If his voice can do
that to me I’d love to see what his enormous hands are capable of. Our bodies
connect and sway to the music as his mouth continues to hover just above my
shoulder causing tingles to radiate through my body. I can feel his lips
grazing the crease of my neck and when he nips my skin my knees go weak. My
head falls back involuntarily giving him more access to continue his sensual
assault. He smells delicious, and the soft suctioning kisses he places up my
neck cause me to moan in anticipation. I have to see the man who is releasing
all my inhibitions.
Reluctantly I turn my heated body around feeling the loss of his soft
lips, but what I’m rewarded with is a vision of godliness. Standing at what
appears to be well over six feet tall is the most panty-dropping specimen that
I have ever laid my eyes upon. I should have turned around sooner! His plain
black t-shirt hugs every single slender muscle in his sexy ass arms. The faded
blue jeans he wears are snug, even more so where his zipper lies, showing me
how much he is turned on. His dark brown hair is a styled mess; short on the
sides but longer up top. I can’t help but wonder what it would feel like to grab
hold of it and tug. Hard. A grin flashes across his face, as if he’s read my
mind, and I see a hint of just one dimple on the right side of his mouth. His
green eyes appear hungry as they shamelessly take me in from my toes to my own
starving eyes. I swallow hard and try to catch my breath.
“I thought you looked good from behind but damn if you don’t look
heavenly from this angle,” he says loudly, over the music.
He grabs both of my hands, circling them around his neck. With our
height difference my forehead falls into his chest perfectly, as if we are two
pieces of a puzzle. I try to control my breathing; the alcohol is coursing
through my veins now. Freeing my hands from their hold, they find their way
down and softly graze over his pecs and then the ripple of his abs. They falter
as they come in contact with not a six pack but, a …1,2,3,… eight pack! I see
his chest rising and falling rapidly. I think he must be as turned on by me as
I am by him. Impossible.
follows the story of Erin Decker, a 28 year old grade six Math teacher at
Hudson Middle School as she deals with her heartbreak when she caught her 5
year-long boyfriend doing the deed doggy style with his personal secretary.
What hurt the most was she actually thought the he would propose because of the
state of Rob’s house when she came to surprise him.
would she get back the five long years she wasted for her ex-boyfriend? How
would she even move on when all her family relatives really thought they would
end up married one day?
to Noelle – the potty mouthed, neat freak best friend. So a night to forget is
what she planned. Lots and lots of alcohol to drown the emotion. Then Walker
comes gyrating behind Erin as she dances, until one thing led to another, then
came the one night stand.
fun part comes when I figured why it was entitled Unexpected. There are exactly
those moments that happens and we can’t find any reason of explanation for it. We
hurt. We experience things that make us question our existence only to find out
that there are better things in store for us. That’s what this book is all
about. Sometimes, dire things happen to us to lead us to a more prolific life.
Prescott is a 23 year old fresh out of university who happens to be the newest
Math teacher at Hudson Middle School. And oh? I mentioned that Erin also
teaches there right? Yeah yeah. And oops, Erin has the baby bump.
I liked about Walker was that, he didn’t ran from his responsibility. He was
somewhat thrilled over the idea of having a baby. BUT, I think the author got a
little too dreamy when she was constructing his character, because honestly, he’s
too good to be true. I really think he’s character is what every woman has
written on their list when their fantasizing over their must haves for an ideal
on the other hand, was kind of infuriating sometimes, not even realizing how
lucky she was to have him as the father of her unborn child. I just hate how
she keeps on letting her insecurities take charge.
As much as I want to rate
this book than 3, I can’t. Because I’m kind of uncertain if I liked it or not. So
I’d just rate a 3. It has its wonderful moments, but there are also those parts
that too lengthy that I tend to skip. For me, the quality of a book isn’t on
the length of the book, it’s on how the plot was put together, how the
characters were developed and how all the hitches were resolved in the end.
was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago and now resides in Virginia Beach
with her fantastically crazy husband and two kids.
As an avid
reader, she never dreamed of writing her own novel until the characters started
haunting her at night and in the shower.
Wanting to get it down on paper she set off on a journey that has been
more than she could have ever dreamed.
When not writing,
she can be found carting her kids around, breaking up their fights, cleaning up
messes, teaching Zumba, or reading.
