Author Feature: After Dark Review of Unexpected by Lilly Avalon

Synopsis: "Ever had one of those days? Alina Lyons is having one. Everything keeps falling apart and going wrong. Just when she thinks it couldn't get worse, it does. After a case of mistaken identity and a broken heart, she finds herself questioning the things she thought she knew. She wonders who she can turn to or trust anymore.

An unlikely bond with her former best friend's ex, Ryan Wilcox, sends her life in a new direction. He offers her a place to stay while she gets her life back on track. His friendship is exactly what she's been missing—what she's been needing. Alina's never felt this alive. As time goes by, the dynamic of their relationship becomes more than either of them expected. A few innocent kisses could lead them in a new direction, but are they prepared for what's on the other side?

Only one way to find out."

My Review: I found this one to be very entertaining, from the quirky voice of the writing to the fun characters and the pop culture/ nostalgic references it was fun. This one certainly starts out with a bang and then reels things back quite a bit to allow tension to slowly build and simmer. I like how it wasn't instalove but it was instant attraction. I did find some of the flirting and romantic interactions to be a little high school and made up out of a dream but it did work well in the story itself. There was a balance of both sexual tension and innocence that fits well into the new adult genre. This was a great summer read, it was light, flirty and fun.
My Rating: I rather enjoyed this book and the quirkiness of the characters.  I give it a rating of Four Paws!
