DNF. I got about half way through and gave up. The writing was....not great. I know this is an erotica and this there is an expectation of explicit sexual scenes, but the plot was barely there and the copious amounts of sex was frankly tiresome. I should have stuck to my initial instincts when I found myself skeptical at my ability to enjoy a non science fiction genre book where the main character's names are Zacari and Keary.

Flee. Save yourselves.

Ahhh Keary! I don't think guys like him really exist, but he was a great hero. Zacari finds her fiancee and her best friend in bed, so she goes to a bar on the other side of town (doesn't want to run into anyone she knows) to get hammered and drown her sorrows. After having too much to drink, Keary steps in -- he's the son of the owner of the company she works for, so he knows her -- and takes her home. The alcohol gives her courage to seduce him in his limo on her way home. She never intended t ...more

Now if you have read my profile you know my feeling about books like this one. The author here has tried to bamboozle her readers, tried to defraud us of every cent of knowledge we have, to tried to degrade our intelligence and constitution to that of a Caterpillar.

This is what is known as interracial baby mama drama the book is so foolish it would be a waste to even begin to outline the problems

in layman terms if you want a cheap quick fuck a baby plopped in for added uselessness please go ahe

This is my kind of story it grabs your attention from page 1. Zacari and Keary's Story. Keary is a great guy who loves Zacari and really has to work hard to prove that he loves her for her. I loved this story it was a real page turner, romantic and engaging! An excellent read.

Why is it that the whole time I was reading this book the background music for it to me was Mr.Loverman by Shabba Ranks?

This book was not at all what I expected and I thoroughly enjoyed the story of Zacari and whats his name.
I could not stand the two main characters in the book! They were both so annoying, seriously a whole big misccomunication that lead to going back and forth between having sex, sulking that their feelings aren't mutual and then having sex all over again. I am not even sure why I am giving this a two star rating...

Parts of this book reminds me of the book “50 shades of gray” for it is hot and steamy! Keary was attentive and caring throughout Zacari’s pregnancy. Keary was in love with Zacari, but had to work hard to prove his love to her. She thought he only wanted to marry her for the baby. The book itself was good, but would have been better if it was longer.

An interracial romance featuring a beautiful African American woman who has now found her fiance in bed with her best friend and decides to hook up with her bosses son for a one-night stand. A very engaging love story of how these two people become involved "after the fact" and begin to walk a journey of discovery together.

I enjoyed this book so much that i read it in a day. I was drawn in by the exotic passion between the two main characters from the start of their encounter.

Something Unexpected is a great title for a great story. Zacari’s character faces challenges that are very familiar such as her broken heart and impulsive action. Keary as well is faced with deciding whether to trust a woman he barely knows. The novel is relatively short but a lot happens in the span of just over a hundred pages. Zacari is of African American descent and while Keary finds her chocolate brown complexion a decadent turn-on, Zacari’s rival tries to make her feel undeserving of his ...more

This is one of my favorite authors. The book is not your common baby stories. When you read this book you really want them to be together. I love this book.

This is my first time reading one of Ms.Lockwood's books, however I truly enjoyed the story. Keary had a quiet determined, but patient confidence that I admire. He and Zacari had a one night stand that develops into more due to an unexpected surprise. I think it flowed nicely and I knew I was buying a book published under erotica, therefore I expected graphic sexual encounters. All in all it was basically a good story and I will definitely consider reading other books by Ms.Lockwood.

Well, I guess it took a lot of a man to believe that some woman sent him a letter that said he was a father of their kid, just from one night stand in a limo. What bothered me is why the hell Keary didn't say "I love you" to Zacari, knowing that she's pessimist and confused about his feelings. But well, a nice quick read.

This was an all around mess. I'm almost ashamed to admit I read this. Since this appears to be one of the authors earlier works I may read something more current to see if the writing has improved. But the next time I'm only giving it 3 chapters. I only finished this bc I knew it was short.
Mar 01, 2013 Chanel rated it liked it
I gave this book three stars even though I thought it was mediocre at best. Zacari was a push over until she got pregnant. Keary was okay and likeable at first until the end when he became a dominant sex fiend. The writing made it easy to read so I wouldn't pass up this story.
Jeanna-Has Probably Read It!
Oh how I loved me some Keary! I have to say I could relate to Zacari's pain but there were some parts where I was saying girl you are going to chase this man away with all of the insecurities. But oh he was a hottie and nice dream to have.
