Hope to see more of these two

I really enjoyed this page turner. I do want to point out that you a better editor. There are several misspelled words that I found myself wanting to correct.
I am so looking for the next book.
Keep writing and I will definitely keep reading.

Unexpected Partners is a romance, it is set in New York around the life of Hayley McAllister and Hayven Enterprises. Hayley and her father run a very successful property development company. Since her Mum left when she was a child it's just been Hayley and her Dad and together they are entirely focused on the success of the business.

Known as The Ice Queen, Hayley has little social life, a few dates with casual boyfriend Jake Wilkinson but little else, it's all work, work, work. When Hayley's Dad

Unexpected Partners was an unexpected joy to read. It offered a look at what can happen when a person places focus on being successful professional without putting in time in to enjoying life. Mainly it was about love. Love that is sacrificed, love withheld, love of a father to his daughter, as well as other types of love such as the love of a job. I look forward to book two in the series to see where the little twists at the end of the book go from here.

Note: This book could have easily been a

Well....where to start?

The story is alright, but the writing is just awful. I'm wondering about an Editor. There are so many typos and errors that it is astounding. Hard to get around all of those distractions to take in the characters and their storyline. All-in-all, UNEXPECTED PARTNERS is a poorly written, extremely light read.

This author needs to take an english and spelling course. So many words were wrong or misspelled that it took my attention from the story. A little word to Sterna Kruger...there is no such thing as a tong as part of the human body, it is a tongue. I may have liked this book if I could have concentrated on the story instead of the millions of errors on the pages.

I found this book very difficult to finish. The story was ok but there were a lot of editing errors. I never really got sucked into the story.

book would be great with some more editing, great base and storey line, just needs more detail to how the sentences flow and they major typos all through the book.
