Book Review: Unexpectedly Yours

I'm just coming at you with great books and I've got one for you today. Don't worry, tomorrow I'll have a round up of what's been happening here, things that are coming up, and I've still got to tell you about my really cool trip coming up with Olivia.

Let's talk about this book first, though because I think you'll like it.
Unexpectedly Yours - Rebecca Shea
One night of unbridled passion. 
It was the only thing Andrew McPherson and Grace Morgan could afford. 


They promised they would never see each other again, but fate had other plans. Andrew's entire life has been spent working toward one goal - to own the top advertising and public relations company in the world. He's driven, ruthless when it comes to business, never letting anything stand in his way...until Grace. 

Grace has worked hard to build her advertising career. She's fiercely talented and dedicated to her clients. Grace has no interest in getting involved with a man when she knows her focus should be on her career and paying off her mounting debt. 

Andrew knows better than to get involved with a woman who is completely off limits, but he never backs down from what he wants, and he won't stop until Grace is his ... only this might cost him more than he's willing to give. 

I signed up for this review knowing I had never read anything from this author so that's always kind of fun because I get to find new authors and get sucked into the worm hole of their books that I have yet to read. After reading this one, I will tell you I am firmly in her worm hole and I have several in my cart just waiting for a paycheck with some fun money left over.

In this one we have Grace, a good girl with the weight of the world on her shoulders, who decides to let loose one night at the encouragement of her friend. She ends up with a one night stand with the most handsome man who made it worth it and she ends up doing the walk of shame but having to do it on the way to work. Once she gets to work she finds out the company has been sold and quickly bought by another company so while she's freaking out about not having a job, in walks Drew.

Her one night stand, of course. Now he's her boss and they recognize each other immediately. Of course her friend who encouraged her is loving all of it.

Grace is desperate to keep her job though and wants to forget the entire thing happened and keep her nose to the grindstone but Drew.... Drew wants more. He knows it isn't just a fling with Grace but now he has to convince her.

I have to tell you- I LOVED THIS BOOK. I loved Drew and how logical and practical he was, I even loved Grace even though I really thought I wouldn't. I really thought she would be that hard headed to a fault, run at every chance,, and she wasn't. I saw the climax coming at the end and knew exactly what it would be but I did NOT expect the reaction from the characters that we got, but it was oddly perfect. I flew through this book in one evening and couldn't put it down. Although we do get an epilogue, there was a little bit I wanted more from, but I'm assuming we'll get some kind of follow up possibly featuring Drew's brother? I don't know but even if we don't, this ended happy and I really enjoyed it.

If you are looking for a fun read with a Pretty Woman vibe to it, you have to pick this one up!

A huge thank you to Social Butterfly PR and Rebecca Shea for having me on this tour and sending me a copy for review! All thoughts are my own of course, and this post contains affiliate links. Happy shopping and happy reading!

I haven't heard of this author either, but this sounds like a great read! I love Pretty Woman so I'm guessing this would be up my alley!

I left a comment on this post last night, but I did it through my phone and am fairly certain it didn't go through :(

I love books that explore fiery passion (I mean, who doesn't?) but the premise here is very interesting, and I love that both people work in advertising/PR. I'm also curious as to what happens to them, based on the blurb you posted. And I can always get behind a book I can quickly page my way through. Thanks for another great review, Sara!
