Start your review of Unexpected Fall (Unexpected Arrivals, #3)
This series just keeps getting better with each new book! These steamy bachelors fall for family, relationships and parenthood with absolutely no hesitation! Their stories are both HOT and swoony at the same time. I just can't get enough of the Beckett Construction Crew!!!!!

Mark and Dawn just sort of fit. They just started hanging out together right from their first meeting, and just drifted together. There was no talking about it, no discussing it. It just was. And now Dawn is starting to have

I’ve read a lot of books in my lifetime. I’ve claimed a handful of favorite book boyfriends. No one has touched that list in awhile. And I’ll tell you, Ridge and Evan have always been my favorite Kaylee Ryan heroes..... and trust me, I still love them. But Mark, he’s stolen my heart one hundred percent. And moved into top book boyfriends ever spot. One of my all time book boyfriends! I love each book on the Unexpected series, don’t get me wrong. Ridge is how I found Kaylee. But that being said, ...more

It is not the first time that I read a book from a series that was supposed to be standalone and it wasn’t!!!

This was the story of Mark and Dawn. It was very well written, full of emotions and drama.

BUT!! I had no idea how their relationship started! Shouldn’t there be an introduction? Something to let the reader know who they were and how they got together?
Then there were all of their friends (from the previous books) parading throughout the story that it became frustrating.

Racing heart. Warm tears. Butterflies. This book is EVERYTHING. I felt every word down in my soul. Marcus Adams is what every woman dreams of. Dawn Miller is the heroine we strive to be. The loyalty in this group of friends is palpable. You will feel the love long after you finish Unexpected Fall. We don’t deserve Kaylee Ryan. Each book is better than the last.

I was so nervous going into this book. I was obsessed with the first one, but the last one just missed the mark for me. And I know if i like it the chances are I will end up ugly crying while my husband looks at me like I'm crazy for a second before he wanders off to get me a cup of tea or glass of wine before hiding so I can't try to explain the whole story to him.

But it's Kendall Ryan so I had to read it and I am so glad I did. From the first page I was so involved in the story. Mark and Dawn

This is my favorite in the series, thus far! Mark had me swooning for days!!! Really loved how he stepped up without a second thought! Such a touching story with so much tragedy, but at the same time love and support! I got choked up with tears several times, as these are possible scenarios people actually have to deal with every day.

Really looking forward to Seth’s book next in the lineup!

We all know tatted construction alpha males are hot, but Kaylee Ryan creates the ultimate alpha male with her small town Tennessee Beckett Construction Crew featured in her Unexpected Arrival series. Already having released two books in this series, Ryan has already established her alpha males that are head over heels for their lucky ladies and the babies they bare. With Unexpected Fall, Ryan establishes an unbreakable bond between friends, family and lovers.

Unexpected Fall is the third book in the Unexpected Arrivals Series by Kaylee Ryan and it’s Mark and Dawn’s turn for their happily ever after. They’ve been friend and most recently lovers and watching all of their friends find love. Recently they’ve started hooking up and while Dawn is sure her feelings are more for Mark she’s not sure Mark feels the same. 

Dawn can’t seem to catch a break, she’s had one hard fall after another and nothing seems to be going right. Mark seems to know what he wants

5 Stars!

Kaylee Ryan is killing it with her Unexpected Arrival series and y'all, this one (the third standalone) might just be the BEST in this series to date. Sexy, swoony, sweet, emotional, beautiful, unputdownable... it checked off every little thing I've come to know, love, and adore when it comes to a Kaylee Ryan book.

Unexpected Fall fiercely stole my heart.... pretty early on in fact and had me racing through the pages and needing a tissue or twenty along the way. Mark and Dawn were everyth

I didn't know how much I would love Dawn & Mark's story, but it turned out to be A LOT!! Other than a SOB (seemingly obligatory breakup) which annoyed me - but they always do. I DID like the timing of it, tho - if we have to have one, I want to be able to enjoy the couple for a while after they get back together, and this story does that. It made the SOB feel like what it's supposed to be - a blip in the relationship, not the whole story. Idk if that makes sense to anyone but me!

Anyway, we get L

“Steady as a rock, 5 stars”

Ugh, Unexpected Fall made my heart hurt! Dawn couldn’t catch a break; it was one hit after another but through it all Mark stood by her. He knew when to take charge and when to let Dawn call the shots. Then you have all secondary characters who we’ve slowly fell in love with over time who just add to the story. If you take a shot on Unexpected Fall (which I think you should) be prepared for the heartache. But Ryan pieces you back together

Hold on to your tissues folks because you’re going to be ugly crying as much as you swoon reading this one! Dawn and Mark have such a beautiful story, but with that beauty comes A LOT of heartbreak. Kaylee Ryan had me going from a happy sighing puddle of love to sobbing my eyes out and then right back to that puddle of love with these two!
It’s clear even from the beginning the love runs deep for them, even when neither of them has admitted that fact their actions speak volumes. Especially with M

Unexpected Fall is the third book in Kaylee Ryan's Unexpected Arrivals series. This book is based on Dawn and Mark's romance.

Dawn and Mark's story revolves around love, heartbreak, and learning to live again after loss. There is no denying Unexpected Fall is an emotional roller coaster and I wanted to love the hell out of this novel, but sadly it was just okay for me compared to the first two books in the series.

Mark was the main key to why I kept reading this one. I loved not only his swoony v

Mark had no problem making sure there's no arguement with his wkmn when he states something, “You’ll be with me.” His tone of voice tells me that there’s no sense in telling him otherwise... "

Mark doesn't appreciate when his woman rushes him, “don’t rush this. I’m making a memory.” His gaze roams over me... " I liked this book, I liked Mark.

What a fantastic read that had me crying nearly immediately, angry at the two characters for not addressing the elephant in the room and then just in awe. I love all these characters and this story was packed full of the angst, a little heat, some heartbreak and pull it all together for an easy read that has my full attention.

I can’t get enough of this series!!! I’ve been excited to see what was going on with these two and this book did not disappoint.

I have to be honest, there was a point where the “are we, aren’t we” internal questioning grew tiresome but it was so easy to overlook that with all of the action taking place throughout the story. I was completely wrapped up in the heartbreak, the love, the shocks...all of it had me tearing through the pages. This book really put me through an emotional ringer.

Unexpected Fall by Kaylee Ryan is book Three in the Unexpected Arrivals Series. This is the story of Marcus Adams and Dawn Miller. I have read (and Loved) the other books which these characters to mix in previous books along with this book, so it does add to your enjoyment if you too read those. But with that said you could make this a standalone book if you wish to do so. Marcus and Dawn are friends which turn into lovers. Marcus is a very good example of a book boyfriend with some alpha male c ...more

So close to a 5-star read and I think if I didn't read book #4 Unexpected Bond which is my read of the year so far this would be a 5-star read.

Mark and Dawn's story is emotional. The start off at FWB but soon those lines are blurred and when Dawn's life implodes over and over again Mark steps up finally realizing that Dawn isn't a FWB she is the one, the one you spend a lifetime with. While Dawn wants the same, her life is a mess and since neither has admitted the depth of their own feelings tha

Ah Mark and Dawn. The third book in this series so frustratingly sweet, heartbreaking, swoony and so much happiness for a couple who deserves it.

Mark and Dawn are seeing each other but unofficially. The unsureness between the two of them, the tip tapping of what their relationship is when everything changes for one of them. I love these two and love seeing the other guys take care of anyone in their famfriends circle. This book will probably make you tear up, make you hope, make you sad, make yo

I was privileged enough to receive an advanced reader copy of this book from the author for a voluntary and honest review.
Kaylee is one of my most favorite authors. Once you start a book she wrote you can't put it down. Her stories are so good that I'll wait for the next one while going back and re-reading the old ones. From the very beginning you fall in love with the characters and their story. I love how relatable the characters are and that you get to see them grow as individuals and togethe

This series just keeps getting better as each book comes out. Mark and Dawn were made for each other. He was so sweet and strong when Dawn needed him. Dawn was awesome, even though I wanted to smack her a couple of times. I look forward to reading the next book.

As I sit here and think more and more on Mark and Dawn's unexpected Fall, the more my heart rapidly beats, the more I fall in love with each and every word that this talented author wrote. Ryan took their world and turned it into this amazingly- profound, yet remarkable love story that beats all other love stories.

Wow. You'll need to have the tissues ready for this book, because it is very heavy and packs all the feels.

Dawn Miller and Mark Adams are best friends - with benefits - who happen to be in love with one another. Neither one of them have told the other how they feel - and Dawn is about to - until tragedy strikes, and she's no longer able to (at that point).

I won't go into the tragedy, because it's a spoiler, but I will say it's very well written. You felt for the characters so much through every

5* is not enough for this exceptional piece of writing!
Pure magic flows out of every word written by Kaylee Ryan! The Unexpected Series (Unexpected Reality; Unexpected Fight) has been purely unique and I wasn't sure how you could improve on perfection but this book goes one step further. .

If you only download one book this year this is it!

We all want a great story; one where you are truly emerged with the characters- this book delivers that and so much more; filled with heart wrenching emotion (

This was an okay book. I loved the first book in this series, it’s one of my favourites, but I wish these books were true standalones.
Yes, we know Dawn and Mark have a history, but we don’t see that. We don’t even see the start of their relationship. I wanted that, if, for nothing else, than a connection to the title. From what we’re shown, this isn’t an unexpected fall for Mark, it’s a gradual one that’s developed over years. I think that’s what also bothers me, is that this relationship takes
