Finding my teammate in bed with my wife made the decision I had been fighting with for years easier.

It’s time to move on.

A fresh start and a new NHL team in a big city. Most importantly, it’s my son Jack’s best shot.

It would be both of our best shots.


After a bad childhood, I made sure I would succeed.

The problem is I die a little with each patient I los

Something So Unscripted was a low angst, sweet, amazing read. Zack and Denise fell into a romance quickly and with ease. There really wasn't any big sweep-her-off-her-feet moments, but that worked for these characters. I loved that from the very beginning you just knew that they belonged together and they fit in each others lives perfectly.

There was still a lot happening in the story that kept me intrigued and forcing myself to not skip to the end to find out what

I couldn't continue.

Major instalove type cheese going on.

I am disappointed because it had the potential to be a heartfelt and moving story about a man going through a divorce with a young son that has cancer that falls in love with his doctor.

I struggled with the fact that every character seemed to burst into tears at every turn. I felt like I was being told about their emotions instead of actually connecting with them and feeling it along with them. For example...there is a part whe

Very sweet and touching love story.
Amazing hero, cute kid, strong and kind heroine.

I can't bring myself to 'complain' about some small and bigger issues, that bothered me.
I just cut it to two points:
- H's ex-wife's character was exaggerated.
- h behaved unprofessional sometimes and, IMO, neglected her other patients

Very sweet epilogue! 💞
5 stars!

OMG, I love this book! It has the sense of fun and sexiness that I love about this series, but with a gutwrenching emotional punch that will take your breath away and have you feeling everything! It’s beautiful and sweet, funny, heartwarming and gorgeously romantic, and I absolutely loved it!

“With her, I let it go.”

One of the most EMOTIONAL romances I’ve read this year! Natasha Madison continues to AMAZE ME with every new release! Trust me when I say, SOMETHING SO UNSCRIPTED will stay with you LONG after the last page has turned.

Ms. Madison surprises me all of the time, but it was her release of SOMETHING SO UNSCRIPTED (Zack and Denise’s story) that just BLEW ME AWAY! This goes beyond what she’s given us in the past. This is a new side to her writing. This is packed with so much

Wow, such a beautiful emotional book!!! The Prologue had me wanting to whoop someone's butt but I had a feeling she would get what was coming her way. And Zack, my goodness that man is an amazing father!

Words can't describe how beautiful it was to see the way Denise fell in love with little Jack and how she vowed to do everything in her power help Jack get better. Their interaction had me smiling and falling in love with Denise. And I could clearly see why Zack fell for her more and more each ti

This story is one of the best books that I've read this year and my new favorite by Natasha Madison. There are not enough words do describe how much I've loved it. I seriously don't know how she does it but this amazingly talented author manages to set the bar higher with every new book she writes. My nerdy bookworm heart is overflowing with sheer happiness and pure contentment after reading Zach and Denise's story. It was gut-wrenching, beautiful, deeply touching and absolutely inspiring.

Something so Unscripted is so much more than a love story, it is an all encompassing, engrossing and engaging novel about, love, life and all the moments that make life special.
Oh and just when you think this story can’t get any better the very last line of the book will grab your heart and have the tears flowing yet again in the best way possible.

Man this book.

I’m a sucker for single parent stories and this one tugged at my heartstrings and had me all in my feelings. Zack was such a good father to his son, Jack. Zack was just a good person over all. Denise came in and gave them both what they needed and even what they didn’t know they needed. I loved Denise’s character as she was smart, strong and selfless.

This story had such a delicious slow burn and I loved the build up, character development and connection between Zack and Denise. You

If this book doesn't make you cry, you need to find a friend and have them check to see if you still have a pulse. There are little moments of joy, of perfection, of heartache all throughout this book. And, I admit it, there were some sniffles.

But, nothing prepared me for the absolute perfection of the last line of the book and for the moment where all was 100% ok. I needed this, I needed the epilogue to let me know that things

Every time I think Natasha Madison has written her best book, she outdoes herself again. I can’t even begin to sum up how amazing this book was. I fell in love with Denise in SSI and she was amazing with Zack and Jack. I know Zack is the hero of this story, and he’s a great one, but it was Jack I fell hard for. This book hit me right in the feels, and I loved every last word in this book!

Gosh. This book is an emotional rollercoaster. Natasha bought the feels big time with this one!

I have to be honest and say it took me a while to fully connect with this book. While the pacing of the story was rather quick, I felt like the build up between Zack & Denise took a long time and unfortunately, I didn't feel it straight away.

However, at around 60% the story took hold of my heart & soul and I felt EVERYTHING! Zack and Denise and Jack are just beautiful!

I love single father romances, this may just be my favorite. Natasha Madison made my heart happy with this heartwarming story.

Something So Unscripted is the journey of one little boy (Jack) and his father (Zack). Zack may just be my favorite of Madison's leading men. He's sensitive, emotional, and the best of all, he's a great father. He will do everything in hi

Natasha Madison déçoit rarement. Elle a une écriture qui emporte quel que soit le genre qu’elle privilégie, comédie romantique ou drame. Ici, elle aborde un thème douloureux, mais qu’elle parvient à ne pas rendre plombant en racontant l’histoire d’un hockeyeur, puisque cette série est concentrée sur une équipe new-yorkaise. Vous connaissez déjà beaucoup des personnages secondaires si vous avez suivi la saga depuis le début, notamment l’héroïne, Denise, qui est la sœur d’un héros précédent. Elle

Something So Unscripted by Natasha Madison is an emotional romance that was just what I have been looking for- full of heat and so much emotion and vulnerability. It, at times, is gritty and raw-just the way I love my romances.

Star NHL defenseman Zack Morrow’s world is turned upside down when his wife messed around on him with his best friend and team mate. So he leaves everything behind thinking things would get better and transfers to the New York Stingers, to give himself and his sweet young

Yes, yes, yes! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Natasha Madison knows how to capture your heart and attention with her excellent storytelling. The Something So series does not have to be read in its entirety in order to follow the awesome storyline of Denise and Zack. However, once you get a taste of their dynamic and Natasha’s writing magic you’ll no doubt want to read about the rest of the couples.

Something So Unscripted was for me, the most emotional read by Natasha. Honestly, I can

Wow! This book just about broke me. It was in the same quirky vain as the others and had some great laugh out loud moments but the main subject matter just tore at my heart. It was handled with beauty and grace. With a sensitivity that was so touching. Cancer isn't an easy subject to tackle but when it a child its worse. A few tears were had whilst reading this story.

Zack and Denise were just made for each other and there isn't any other way to put it. It was fate and in Dr Denise, Jumping Jack

I’ll start by suggesting that prior to starting this book, have plenty of tissues handy. This book deals with the tough topic of cancer.....throw in little children, it’s heartbreaking. There was something about the book that just screamed for me to read it (besides the hot cover). Having only read the first book in the series, it wasn’t hard to follow (though now I need to move books 2 & 3 up my TBR). Zack is a single dad who is fighting for his son, Jacks, life.

Zack doesn't mind getting dirty when he has to, "I didn’t give Denise a chance to cop out of dinner, so I made sure to tell Jack. It was a low blow probably, but guess what? I didn’t give a **** anymore." Denise likes to throw Zack's lines back at him, "...getting up and fixing my morning b***r as she laughs. “Definitely need to explore that more,” she says, pointing at my ****." Wow...

Something So Unscripted is an emotional second chance at love for single dad, Zack Morrow. Life and love cannot be scripted. Zack knows this better than anyone as he tries to be at the top of his game as an NHL player and get his son Jack the best treatment from the best hospitals and doctors around.

I absolutely love, love, love Natasha's writing and imagination. I would read anything she writes. With that being said, this is my fave series. I feel in love with all the characters especially Jack. There was so much love and respect between Zack and Denise in their relationship. I purposely read slow so I wouldn't finish it so soon. I guarantee you will love this series.

When her nose isn't buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she's in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It's a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn't listen to her...
