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 h

Kent and laney

Great read as all of Kaylee books are.Kent met Landry when she was in Tennessee living at her grandparents house. During breaks in college she would go back to Tennessee to see kent. It's the night before her senior year of college and she will be leaving to go back. But she has something to tell kent . But Kent goes out with his friends and never shows up to see laney. The next day Kent goes to see Landry and to tell her he is sorry for not showing up. Laneys mother tells Kent la

God.. I don’t know what I was expecting but I’m 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 (heroine’s) who played her part in their separation.
#a twist so predictable. (view spoiler)

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 wasn’t in the right place for another book like that right now. I’m so glad that I didn’t 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 over

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 & work t

THIS BOOK! This freaking magnificent book! I DEVOURED this book. No, devoured isn’t good enough. Or maybe it is, but I didn’t devour this book, it devoured me. I was obsessed. Utterly addicted to Kent and Delaney’s 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 I’d already come to know and love from this series along with falling just as deeply for characters I was meeting ...more

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 Delaney’s story is an emotional, second chance that as the title suggests, defies the

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

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.

Fantastic end to a great series. I love Kent and all the guys! Kent's story did not disappoint. I didn't know what kinda of storyline Kaylee could create with Kent and his love, but she did it right. I really enjoyed Kent and Delaney's story. I couldn't put it down! Delaney's been through a pretty big ordeal, but there is something about the man she keeps dreaming about. She has inherited a house, on the other side of the country, and she is going to see about the house from her childhood. She s ...more
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 Ryan’s 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 sam

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!! ...more

Nicki - The Overflowing Bookcase
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

Kent sometimes has to slow his woman's roll, “don’t tease me, woman.” He kisses me one more time then pulls away. “You ready to go?” I liked this book, I loved Kent I found him to be a real patient man. ...more
I had mixed emotions as I started this book. As glad as I am to see the last of the guys find their HEA, I'm still sad to see the series end. I absolutely loved the Beckett construction crew, and their stories are among some of my favorite. I've read each books multiple times, and they just get better each time! Kent and Delaney fit so well with each other, it seems like they've been together forever.

Delaney had a great childhood, happy and surrounded by loving parents and grandparents. But her

Ugh this didn't work for me... at all! Kent saw Laney when she would visit TN when she wasn't at college, and she spent that time with Kent. They set up a meet at a B&B, and he shows 4 hrs late because supposedly he can't accept his feelings for her. The next day she is gone. Her mother weeks later says she is back with her boyfriend. Then her parents move to be near her.

Fast-forward 5 yrs and Laney is back in TN after her dad died and left the house in TN to her with some stipulations. There s

Unexpected Odds is the fifth novel in the Unexpected Arrivals series by Kaylee Ryan. I think it's the final book since all the people seem to have found their soulmates, but I might be wrong. I have loved every book I read in the series (skipped book 4 due to some pet peeves though) and I know that I will keep reading whatever the author decides to write next.

Like it happed with the other books in the series, the blurb doesn't reveal much about the plot, so I won't either. I am only going to sa

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. Ryan’s books, I felt it all right along with these characters. She is so good at allowing the story to flow, th ...more

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!

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 ho

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

Kent works for a construction company but when he arrives at the house that they are renovating the last person he expects to see is Delaney, his first love, who disappeared from his life five years ago. The surprises keep coming as not only doesn’t she remember him but also the fact that she is not alone.

Delaney’s brain may not remember Kent and their time together, but her heart feels like she knows him. She has endured so much since they have been apart, but will he be able to convince her to

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 couldn’t stop until the end. The pain these two endure will bring tears to a readers eye but it’s 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.

I’m 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 can’t 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 can’t top herself and then she goes and does it again. Kent, he is AMAZING! Just like the other men. And Delaney, she’s a sweetheart. Not to mention we get to check i ...more
