***** 4.5 Cranky Stars *****


For the last ten years, Kyler Jefferson has been doing whatever it takes to keep her and her children safe. If that means going off-grid, she does it. If that means looking over her shoulder and keeping out sight, she does it.



At sixteen and pregnant with twins, her parents and brother were brutally murdered. The crimes are still unsolved and as there were no clues to the perpetrators, Kyler has a quiet life under the radar.



Caleb Hudson is a private investigator and in

"An Unexpected Love" by J. Haney

My Thoughts.....

I will only say that Kyler Jefferson was one strong person to have gone through so much in her lifetime. Even after ten years life for Kyler was still on the run with her twins. One good thing about this story was after meeting Caleb Hudson [who was a PI] was one of the best things that could have happened for her. After

This is an emotional story. There is a huge mystery surrounding Kyler. And she has no one she can really trust. But when she meets a PI in one of the towns her and her twins are living in she thinks she found someone that can help protect her family.

Caleb is that PI. He never looked for love and didn't really want one. But he wants to protect this little family. But to do that he has to figure out who is trying to harm them.

I read this story in one sitting. I was a little sad it ended in a cliff

Omg I loved this book. Kyler and Caleb are amazing. I love dual povs and that just that but you learn about everyone, the story flow was great, it's real. Kyler and Caleb have a past and sometimes that can make moving forward hard especially when that past comes back. This book had it all, love, suspense, mystery and I'm ready for the next one.

I really liked this book. Kyler is a kickass mama and the kids were pretty awesome as well. Caleb was a big teddy bear. I had all the feels With the storyline *sigh* my heart seriously hurt for Kyler. The secondary characters were really good also. And SERIOUSLY that ending grr!!!

This is Avery intriguing book that I could not put down. I am so glad these two met and gave it a try. She's still hiding after all this time and trying to take care of her kids. He's determined to break down her walls and protect her at all cost. Although there were problems and rough spots they had to go through to get where they are it was a great journey for them.

When I first started this story I wasn't sure. As I kept reading I got more and more involved. The mystery that winds its way through the story has you turning page after page.
The unexpected twist at the end has me screaming looking for the next book.....

The book is a good suspense romance read. The story has suspense, heat, action, romance, intrigue, passion, and a bit of mystery. The characters are good and they have good chemistry. The story ends with some what of a cliffhanger.

WOW, so many emotions about this book I don't even know what to say! An Unexpected Love by J. Haney draws you in and hooks you from page one and holds you hostage while taking on an emotional roller coaster up until the very last page. This book is well written and flows naturally and at a steady pace. The characters are great and believable, I love that the main female character is strong and independent. The only issue I have is the cliffhanger at the end. Look forward to reading book two in t ...more

Romantic suspense is one of my favorite subgenre of romance.

Unexpected Love is a promising story centering on PI Caleb Hudson, who’s out to protect Kyler Jefferson and her children from a murderer. Sparks fly as Caleb and Kyler go on the road, trying to track down answers from Kyler’s past to help capture the killer.

The premise of the story is good, I liked how Caleb and Kyler both have these tough attitudes, yet events from their pasts have scarred them emotionally. There are a lot of moments o

This book was so sad and had a lot of unexpected turns. I couldn't put it down. Kind of bummed that it ended without a real end in preperation for future books.
I wish that some events would not have happened. Made my heart hurt for Kyler.
Such a strong female character.

This book is actually a 4.5 stars.
Kyler Jefferson has been doing whatever she has to do to protect her children for the last ten years. Even if it means going off the grid until the dangers past. Ever since she was sixteen years old and pregnant with the twins, this has been her life. She is an expert at staying off the radar all because her parents and brother were brutally murdered while she was at school and the police haven’t solved these murders.

This was an easy read, not that I say that in any way to the detriment to the book because I don’t – the book was super, it held my attention from start to finish and I have to say that I would definitely read other work by this author in the future.
She had a beautiful writing style, it was just so fluent.
Told from multiple points of view the book is sharp, it is busy but it is concise.
It has so much going on that it really does need you to watch every word. Kyler has so much going on that she i

I'm really disappointed to say I did not like this book. It was a struggle to read. I was really looking forward to it after reading a snippet in a FB group, too! :(

The plot & storyline are very interesting, but the execution was just not to my liking. The personalities of each character seem very disjointed and all over the place. I couldn't get a handle on what was going on with them or with the larger story. A lot of things didn't make sense to me. And while I understand there is to be m
