This is the first actual romance book for me that I feel is romantic.


She’s worked hard to overcome her past.

He tries to ignore his.

When their scars are reopened, will they be able to help each other heal, or will it be what keeps them apart?


For as long as I could remember, I’ve always wanted a family. When I finally get what I want, it’s nothing like I’d expected it to be. It never occurred to me that making one bad decision for all the right reasons could end so wrong. Now, I’m unsure about the future of myself and my daughter. But I can’t take it anymore, I’ve hit the breaking point. Know I want out, I turn to a friend for help. He’s completely off limits, so I never expected feelings to get involved.


The past is always there, waiting to remind you of your pain when you’re most vulnerable. I’ve learned to keep people at bay so I won’t get hurt again. But when I see Simone struggling to do everything she can for her daughter, I can’t look away. It makes me want to be someone she can lean on, someone she can trust with her thoughts and feelings, but our shared history is complicated. When it becomes clear that she needs my help, I can’t say no. I was only supposed to guide her through the process – the most difficult time in her life. But now, I can’t stop thinking about her.

Falling for the Unexpected is Book One of the Life Unexpected series.

The reason why I felt this was a true romance, is yes, it does involve sex, but it had the raw feelings. A wife scorned, with the knight in shining armor who does what he believes in. It really did feel like the family in the book is mine. I have been raised around guys, I do have that one girl friend, I am a mother, I know what Simone is feeling when it comes to her child.

I give Falling For the Unexpected 5/5 for the feelings. Great job Rachel.
