Still reeling from the shock of my life, Jones, an old high school crush sweeps me off my feet and onto the sticky, hard surface of an empty bar counter. Embraced by Jones’ strong, athletic arms our spontaneous night of

Dumped at the altar for her best friend, she seeks comfort in the arms of the best man! Who is a football star, and their one night stand leads to a pregnancy! I love stories like this. And the way they describe how small towns are is spot on, it's ridiculous. Anyways, for a not very long story, it packed quite a punch. I really liked it, good weekend read.
I got an arc of this book, btw.

The day of Kyra's wedding to David was supposed to be the happiest day of her life. At the altar though, David decides he can't marry her. Come to find out he had been cheating on Kyra with her best friend Tam. Once everyone left, Jones, a friend since high school, a football star and also the best man, came to check on her. After getting drunk together, they end up having sex on the bar at the hotel (which was closed). It was a mind blowing night for both, but Jones left before she woke up in t ...more

Unexpected was the first book that I got to read by the author April Fire. It was a good short story. If you like sports romance with a little twist, you will enjoy Unexpected. I felt bad for Kyra at the beginning of the story. I think that is the horror story in love, being left at the alter by David. And when she realizes who he left her for, was a shocker and made things that much worst. All Kyra wanted to do was forget the bad, and for once have fun. That is exactly what she gets from her hi ...more

¿Por dónde empezar?
La historia está repleta de principio a fin de clichés, es decir, que ya sabíamos dónde terminaría. En primer lugar, la manera de escribir de la escritora fue fácil de predecir. Demasiado fácil para el lector y los personajes, sin ningún giro en la trama que nos sorprendiera.
Y en segundo lugar, fue la falta de obstáculos para deleitarnos por mayor tiempo. Entiendo que es una historia súper corta, pero solo fueron páginas para perder el tiempo leyéndolas y que no me gustasé.

No me gustó, el principio del libro me hizo pensar que me encontraría con una protagonista fuerte y empoderada, que a pesar de lo mal que lo estaba pasando iba a salir de está con la frente en alto, pero no, nos encontramos con una mujer que se pasa todo el libro lamentando su situación, aceptando y explicando lo que Jones hace.

The story is very short and some of the scenarios are not believable. For such a short story their is a lot going on. Including a brides worse nightmare to hooking up with your high school crush that happens to be the best man. And of course the unexpected baby.

Otra historia corta de abundante contenido y aunque la portada que no tiene mucha relación con el argumento, me pareció bastante cumplidora.

It is the day of Kyra’s wedding and her husband to be, David, has just told her that he can’t marry her. While she was standing at the altar, in front of all of their guests. After running to her hotel room, in an understandable 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 David and her were together and she was the reason David cancelled the w

Unexpected was my first April Fire read and it will not be my last. This is a quick hot read that involves a very sexy football player named Jones and a sweet girl named Kyra. The story has tons of drama, heartbreak, humiliation, and hot sex. I recommend this story for anyone wanting a quick steamy read.

I loved this book and it played with my emotions as I flipped the pages un able to put it down once I started it. The book had me filipin as fast as I could to find out what was going to happen next! Kyra and Jones relationship is the classic story of unrequited love until the unexpected happens. The unexpected continues throughout the novel from getting left at the altar, to the arm

Great read

I was drawn into this book from the very beginning. Kyra had her heart broken right at the beginning of the book, on her wedding day! Finding out Jones had always had a crush on her but backed off for his former friend (her ex-fiancé), was adorable, but the way her reacted to her made me fume and I just wanted to backhand him so badly. There were some ups and downs in this short story, but it had a great happy ending. Thank you for sharing this story and I'm so glad that I voluntarily

this is a very hot, romantic quick read. This book has fab characters. This story has a lot in it for a short read. This book has heartbreak, humiliation and romance pouring out of every page. This is the first book by this author that ive read and it definitely wont be the last, I cant wait to read more from them in the future. I really didn't want this book to end, I was left wanting more and more.

Highly recommended

I loved it. Talk about heartbreak, humiliation, and so much more. Then comes Jones who takes her on another roller coaster. But that scene in the restaurant. Perfect. Kept me entertained and was fun to read. Keeps you guessing which is just what I like. I recommend it. I received a free copy for an honest review.
