4 Unexpected Crowns

This is my first book by Tyler King, and it wasn't what I expected. Filled with complex characters and an unexpected story-line, it was a beautifully written romance.

The complexity of not only the characters but also their relationship is unusual in the romance world. Originally, readers see Avery as a character who needs guidance. As a survivor of a cult, she seems to be the one who struggles in public and social situations. Readers assume that she is the one that will need the saving, but, in a turn of events, she becomes the who has immense strength. She is the one who saves, and readers get to see her come into her own and gain the confidence she needs from the very beginning. As well as being a savior and needing saved, Ethan is a damaged and complex hero. He is the main reason Avery becomes the woman she does in the novel, but he also has demons that plague him. Readers see him travel down a dangerous path, but similar to Avery he fights his way back.

What readers will ultimately love about these characters is that they support each other unconditionally. There love, although quick, seems to whether all the storms life throws at them, and their love is unalterable and authentic.

This story will take readers places they never expected. I know that I expected an office type romance between the newest reporter and the superstar writer, but it is so much more. Yes, there is an office romance, but it becomes more. It is a story about love, real love, and the hardships life asks that love to endure. It shows that it isn't always easy, and sometimes it is best to walk away. At the core, though, love is about unconditional support and acceptance.

Tyler King has penned a very tragic yet beautiful romance that will pull at readers' heartstrings. Filled with angst, romance, and redemption, it is sure to be a favorite.
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
