From the International Best Selling Series Something So


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.

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! 💞

This book is so cute heart breaking funny sexy and full of hot sexy hockey men and throw in so mega cute kids. I m really enjoying this series. The books just keep getting better. Every man just keeps getting hotter and hotter and the woman just keep getting stronger and stronger. I was looking forward to getting more of Denise after the last book. Denise is Max Horton's sister who he super protective over. They didn't have a great up bringing. But Max did everything for her

OMG! DNF @ 23%. I can't stand it! It feels like I'm already at 50% the way this thing drags and drags like reading an instruction manual!!


The writing isn't atrocious. The plot is one I obviously liked. But the execution is more BORING than watching paint dry!

I've read plenty of "slow burn" novels before. But there was tension. There was passion. There was humor. There was NOTHING here for freaking one-quarter of this novel!!

I kept wait
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!

Enjoyable read.
I didn't like the way author trashed a lot ex-wife. The hero was married to her for 10 years! And finally, when he caught her in bed with his BBF he said, that he didn't like anything about her: her Botox, her bleached hair, her cold way with their son, her detachment, nothing about her.. but why you didn't divorce her earlier?? It's enigma for me.

I'm warning you now , you will need tissues when you read this book. If childhood cancer is a trigger for you , then be warned that Zack's son , Jack , is going through ALL. The subject is explored at length and plays a big part in this story. Jack's character is beautifully written and he absolutely brought me to tears. I realise I may be making this novel sound depressing but it honestly is not. There are some really funny parts to it, especially the inter

Well now I have inhaled this series without pause, which would be great if it wasn't days to Christmas and my to do list wasn't longer than Santa's naughty list. All of which has been ignored and neglected while I binge read these.

Anyway this one wasn't my favourite but I still loved it. Zack was a new character to the group and he was a lot less alpha than the other guys. But then I think that was probably for the best. He suited Denise and they worked perfectly together.

OMG……it has been a long time since I have read a book that made me cry so much. I love children, so clearly reading a book where one of the main characters is a Pediatric Oncologist was going to cause some serious emotions.

Dr.Denise Horton is Max Horton’s sister and I had read about her in several other books so I knew that I liked her a lot.

Zack Morrow is an NHL player who for many reasons has now relocated with his son Jack to New York. He is now playing on the same team as Matthew Grant and

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

I’ve devoured this series, of course me being me read it in the wrong order but it didn’t diminish the emotional overload, watching each couple fall in love.

Zack and his son Jack will capture your heart, you’ll cry and laugh with each step they take.

Denise was a phenomenal lead, caring, sweet and loving. Her fierce loyalty to these two guys is heartwarming.

Get ready to fall in love.,

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.

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.

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

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! Everyth

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!
