This is one of those moments where I am sad that the journey is over. I loved every step of the way but I almost feel like I'm losing a friend. Or in this case a whole group of them.

Every book in this series has grabbed hold of me and made me love each and every one of them. I have been dying to get Kent's book. He was the strong silent type who loved so hard but always sat on the sidelines alone. And although we knew there had to be a reason it was a mystery.

And meeting Delaney and watching

God.. I dont know what I was expecting but Im starting to get bored with predictable authors and stories.

#loser hero who had no balls to tell heroine how he felt.
#weak heroine who was pregnant when she left.
#secret baby.
#an evil mother (heroines) who played her part in their separation.
#a twist so predictable. (view spoiler)

What a delightful story to end this series. This has been one of my FAVORITE series - and unexpected. *grin* I didn't know there was going to be a series when I read Unexpected Reality. I loved that one so much that when the author offered a t-shirt to purchase, I had to have it (and it's comfy!!)! : )

To get each of these guys' stories has been a treat, and to save Kent's story for last was genius. He & Delaney have such wonderful chemistry! I love the way they interact with each other

THIS BOOK! This freaking magnificent book! I DEVOURED this book. No, devoured isnt good enough. Or maybe it is, but I didnt devour this book, it devoured me. I was obsessed. Utterly addicted to Kent and Delaneys story almost instantly. I was pushed to my limit on so many emotions. From tears of heartbreak to tears of pure joy, I cried them all as I fell even harder for characters Id already come to know and love from this series along with falling just as deeply for characters I was meeting for ...more

I have to be honest, when I first started reading this, it took me a bit to get into it. The last book, and really all the books in the series have been difficult and very emotional and I just wasnt in the right place for another book like that right now. Im so glad that I didnt put it down because once I was a couple chapters in, I was hooked. I have always been curious about Kent. I knew that this strong, silent, sweet guy just had to have a story and boy, did he! While at times it was

What a way to bring an Amazing Series to a end. Kent, I just love him. He is so misjudged because of his tattoos with a bad boy look. He is such a softie . He wants what his bestfriends have the love of a good woman and family. So when his pass comes back into his life all bets are off. He isnt letting Delaney the one that got away get away again. Get ready to swoon and fall in love with the guys of Beckett Construction all over again.

The final book in the Unexpected Arrivals series focuses on Kenton (Kent) Baldwin, Uncle Kent to all the adorable kiddos from all the other books. Kent is kind of a brooding man - and we realize it's because he was in love with someone, and let her get away.  He doesn't know where the woman is, and he hasn't been able to move on.

The Beckett Construction guys get a job to renovate the Nottingham estate - and Kent comes face to face with his long lost love, Delaney Nottingham. Things do not go as
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Unexpected Odds by Kaylee Ryan is book 5 in the Unexpected Arrivals Series. This is the story of Kent and Delaney. I have read the previous books which added to my enjoyment of this one but I did feel you could make this a standalone book if you wish to do so. Kent and Delaney where once in love but they were pulled apart. Kent didn't really know what had happen to Delaney but we learn she had been in a car accident where she lost her memory. Now in there present day Kent ends up meeting Delaney ...more
This was another delightful story in Kaylee Ryans Unexpected Arrivals series. Kent has spent the last 5 years in regret that he let Delaney get away when she shows back up in his life. **plot twist** **another plot twist** Now Delaney and Kent are trying to see if they can recover from the old hurts and navigate a new relationship.

This book was a well written story and second chance romance that just about touched on every feeling I can think of. Kent is strong but a little sensitive at the same

I have loved this whole series and all the guys from Beckett Construction. I mean, what is not to love about a bunch of hard working alphas that love fiercely and absolutely adore their women and children? Kenton did not have an easy story. He let his love get away five long years ago. When circumstance brings Delaney back to town, she brings a few surprises with her. As usual with Ms. Ryans books, I felt it all right along with these characters. She is so good at allowing the story to flow, ...more

Unexpected Odds by Kaylee Ryan is book 5 and the final book in the Unexpected Arrivals series. This is Kent and Delaney's story.
This was heartbreaking( at times) emotional, heartwarming, steamy, full of feels, rollercoaster ride of emotions ( grief, pain, anger, happiness, pain, joy) and romance.
Kent and Delaney had a brief romance which ended suddenly then several years later Delaney is back. Kent has never forgotten Delaney and their connection/chemistry. She was his long lost love and he

5 Stars!

Kaylee Ryan is a fantastic writer, always producing a new favorite of mine from her and this particular series has been completely amazing in every little way there is. I've read every book in order so far and I swear they get better and better with each new release.

The Unexpected Arrivals series is back with its fifth emotionally charged, unforgettable standalone romance and hold on to your hearts ladies and gents because it's totally gonna be stolen by the time you finish this story!

I cannot praise this series enough and am sad that this is the final book. I have loved every journey with each of these guys and as every story releases, I have fallen more in love with each of them. Kaylee Ryan has a remarkable ability to make me feel how each character is feeling and I always find myself deeply immersed into each and every story.

Unexpected Odds is a beautiful second chance romance. Kent and Delaneys story is an emotional, second chance that as the title suggests, defies the

This one really comes at your pretty hard. I felt bad for Kent and Laney and what they lost, felt worse when you really found out why, so much time over petty jealousy. I was glad that Laney's dad manipulated her a bit in having her go to Tenneesee and I was happy that Laney felt right at home. Happpier yet when she let herself believe what Kent told her, let herself be open to finding happy. Of course it helped that at each turn Kent was there showing her what kind of a man her was, that he had ...more

As much as I hate to see the series end Kent's story needed to be told. Filled with regrets, miscommunication, and time lost that can never be replaced, Kent and Delaney's story was another masterpiece from Kaylee Ryan. With layers and layers of the past colliding with the future Kent and Delaney have huge mountains to overcome. When all of lies and deceptions are revealed the story takes a turn into one that is filled with hope and happiness. In true "Unexpected" fashion once again I was wiping ...more

Im one hundred percent not ready for this series to be over. Ridge is how I found Ms. Ryan to begin with and the rest is history. Each of these books have meant something to me and I cant wrap my bead around it being the end. Kent and Delaney have meant the world to me reading this book. Their story, man! I keep thinking Ms. Ryan cant top herself and then she goes and does it again. Kent, he is AMAZING! Just like the other men. And Delaney, shes a sweetheart. Not to mention we get to check in ...more

I didn't think it was possible.. BUT Kaylee out did her with Kent and Delaney's story.
My heart broke more then once for Delaney, I can't even imagine how she was feeling. ** spoiler free review** Being in the dark for all those years and then not only seeing the light finally, but the light just kept getting bright.
Kent had some heart break he had to deal with as well. But like the true southern gentlemen he is he held back his own feelings and just let things happen as the did!

How do I fall more and more in love with this group of friends and all their stories. Kenton's story with Delaney had a fantastic premise and packed full of all the feels. I am truly at a loss for words as to how to review this book because it truly is filled with so many feels and such a fantastic story line. Must read 202 0!!

Wow! Another amazing read from Kaylee!! This author certainly knows how to weave words that can make a reader fall down the rabbit hole & never get out until they are done! I just couldnt stop until the end. The pain these two endure will bring tears to a readers eye but its definitely more light hearted than the prior 2 books in this series. It had moments of sadness for the characters, but was fantastic second chance romance that gives this series a beautiful ending.

A complete standalone,

Let me start by saying just how much I have enjoyed the Unexpected Arrivals series. From Ridge and Kennedy and Tyler and Reagan (my faves) and Mark and Dawn and Seth and Mara and Amelia (because she was so much apart of their story) and finally Kent and Delaney. These sexy tattooed alpha men have found a way into my heart much like they did with their wives. It all started with an unexpected arrival and ended with an incredible family anyone would give anything to have.

Now for Kent and Delaney.

So, I a little bit late to the party with Kaylee Ryans Unexpected Arrivals series, having read the first book in the series, Unexpected Reality I quickly realised that this series was one that I was going to thoroughly enjoy. With that being said I quickly downloaded the following series and I freaking loved it!

Everything I love to read in a romance

Oh, holy hell, this book is everything that my unreasonably sentimental heart demands in an unexpected baby, second chance romance. Given the premise of this series, I wondered what odd kind of circumstance Kaylee Ryan was going to create for Kent in this last story for the Unexpected Arrivals series.

Every book has been amazing, right from Unexpected Reality, which for me, has been a beautiful re-read, right through to Unexpected Odds. Kent has been there

I have been waiting for Kents book for forever and Kaylee did not disappoint. This is one of my favorite series and its been an emotional rollercoaster for sure. This group of friends has become like family to me and Ive traversed all of the struggles, grief, pain, joy and happiness with them. I needed Kent to get his HEA as the series is now done.

Kent was exactly who I thought he was since the first book. He is this amazing, reliable, and strong man who was always there for the people he
