Book Review: Unexpected

One day forever changes the destiny of college overachiever, Michelle Rhodes.

Shattered, confused and alone, no one understands the trauma consuming her until she meets Connor Donnelly.

A native New Yorker, he believes he can aid in getting her life back on track. But what if he's even more broken inside?

Offering her a chance at a fresh start, Connor convinces Michelle to move in with him. Hiring her to waitress at his bar, their mutual attraction only complicates matters.

As more details surrounding Connor's past emerge, Michelle uncovers the full magnitude of the loss he's trying to hide. Refusing to let her feelings for him hinder his recovery, she makes a decision that winds up hurting them both.

By sacrificing her heart, Michelle thinks she is helping Connor come to terms with his grief. Little does she know, Connor is gambling everything for the sake of having a future with her.

What happens is truly unexpected.

Unexpected....that's just how things seem to work, good and bad, when we least expect them, and the unexpected can alter our lives forever.

This may sound strange, but Unexpected is an incredible book about a terrible tragedy, 9/11.  It's difficult to imagine that a book with the subject matter of 9/11 in it can be good, but this is a definite page turner, one you don't want to miss.

This story is about a young girl, Michelle, who has left home for college, shortly after, her world has forever changed, like all of ours.  What happens after a tragic event, do you turn away, run and hide, leave, or stay and face your demons?  Michelle chooses one of the above, and while reading this story you will once again feel the pain, but you will also feel happiness as you read about romance that is found after the wounds begin to heal.
