~ SYNOPSIS ~
Have you ever wished for a moment that you could pretend to live the life of someone else? Escape the harsh reality that your own is anything but perfect?
Quinn had always been forced to put her own needs last. With an absent father and a mother who drowns herself daily in a bottle of Rum, there was no other option.
Jett was the distraction she needed, even if it was just for one night. A void filler, a chance for a freeing moment to allow herself to feel something other than emptiness.
He wasn’t what she expected…
Her life didn’t have room for a man like Jett.
But now it was too late, there was no turning back.
Nothing would ever be the same.
“You were unexpected. Our first encounter was completely unpredictable…”
CA Harms is one of my all-time favorite authors and with each book that she writes, it solidifies it even more. Unpredictable was AMAZING. Jett was delicious and Quinn was so strong despite all the things she had been through. This book was written very well, the character development was on point and the plot flowed effortlessly. 5 out of 5 stars!!
“The desire to have her again was almost unbearable. I had never before had such a problem with getting things I wanted until now.”
One of Jett’s qualities that I loved so much was the fact that he wasn’t an overly controlling man where Quinn was concerned. Yes, he was alpha, but he was also patient – not a pushover by any means, though. You see, he gave Quinn her space when she needed it, but he was also persistent when she needed a little push. In my opinion, he had the perfect balance between a sweet and understanding guy and a dominant alpha male. Simply put, Jett was DELICIOUS.
Quinn had A LOT going on in her life and the last thing she needed was a distraction. She did not have the time to fall in love. But then….where love is concerned, when do we ever get our way? Quinn was fighting a losing battle. She and Jett were inevitable. They were bound to happen sooner or later. Especially after that first night….
“That night was not a mistake. It wasn’t wrong. I know you feel the same way. Something that felt that amazing can’t be a mistake. For some reason, though, you want me to believe you regret it. Why?”
So much happened! Misunderstandings, heartache, angst – oh my! I was HOOKED and in love with not only the characters (all of them!) but the story line as well! Gah! Really. CA Harms nailed it! I highly recommend this book to anyone that loves a passionate romance with steamy scenes and a swoon-worthy male lead! FIVE STARS!!!!
~ EXCERPT ~
It’d been two days. Two days of unanswered calls, unanswered texts. Two days of driving by her house day and night, only to find it empty. I spoke with her boss at Spencer’s, and he too said she had taken some time off.
With each day my heart sank a little more with the thought that I had thrown away the best thing that had ever happened to me. This was on me, completely. I acted like the biggest dick when I should have just talked to her.
“Hey, numb nuts, you still pouting?” Kade shouted as he exited the French doors onto the back patio.
“I need to change my locks,” I grumbled. Resting my head back against the chair, I closed my eyes, attempting to block him out.
“Don’t blame me for your massive amount of shit. I’m just here for the pool—oh, and the free beer.” He chuckled as he pulled his shirt up and over his head, then took off and jumped, cannonballing into the pool.
“Whew,” he yelled out just before hitting the water. The cool splash flowed backward, drenching the entire patio. All I could do was shake my head at the ass. He was doing everything possible to pull me from my slump. I picked up my phone and checked once again for any response only to come up empty.
“Give the girl some time. I know it’s driving you crazy, not being able to fix this, but you need to try to give her some space.”
Kade climbed out of the pool, shaking his hair, once again spraying water in every direction. Cocky son of a bitch chuckled as I jumped from my chair and stepped back.
