    2. Fans of friends to lovers stories will love this as much as I did. Not only do we get the story of friends becoming more, we get to see the characters becoming friends in the first place. It made for a fantastic book!Alina was having an amazingly bad day, and it was only getting worse. After a horrible morning, a case of mistaken identity leads to an awkward encounter with her roommate/best friends ex-boyfriend, Ryan. They both end up in a similar situation and form an unlikely bond because of i [...]

    5. 4 stars!I finished this book in one sitting. It was the perfect blend of sweet and sexy! *ARC kindly provided by author in exchange for a honest review**Full Review to come*


    6. Check out more reviews at Little Miss Bookmark!I'm just going to dive right into the review this time. The synopsis is pretty on track, no reason for me to put it into my own words. Plus, I just have too much to say about this one. Too. Much. But before I let loose on all of that, there is one thing that you should know. This book isn't bad. I gave it three stars, so there must have been some things that I liked about it, right? Well, there are. Just not enough for this to be one of those "holy [...]


    7. Actual Rating: 3.5 Stars"There's something about sharing a sunset with someone you care about. It's profoundly spiritual, as if it connects you to that person in a way nothing else can. It may have only lasted for a brief moment in the entire span of our lives, but it's something I'll always carry with me no matter what happens tomorrow."Unexpected was a sweet and enjoyable read. The story starts off with one heck of a bang. Alina is having the worst day of her life. Anything and everything that [...]


    8. **I received an eARC of "Unexpected" courtesy of the author in exchange for an honest review**"Unexpected" was absolutely amazing and couldn't have been more perfect! This was the first novel that I had read from Lilly Avalon, and it was phenomenal. I loved her writing style, and the storyline and characters she created were extraordinary. Truly. Alina and Ryan were such a genuinely sweet and kind couple, and I couldn't help but fall in love with them. I was definitely rooting for them from the [...]



    9. Ryan is passionate and adorable – and deserves so much better than his girlfriend, Victoria. It’s almost a damn good thing that she’s a conniving bitch. Victoria’s betrayal throws Ryan and Alina together as friends…or something more?Of course, Alina’s luck isn’t much better – in fact she’s well on her way to having the worst day of her life. Or so she thinks. Her embarrassment in the shower is just the beginning. She then quickly becomes jobless, boyfriendless, bestfriendless a [...]


    10. *I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review*I LOVED this book! However, I'm not surprised because I have lived everything Lilly Avalon writes. She has a way of writing characters that you wish you could be or at least be friends with. As for writing the guy? You'll want him as your next book boyfriend! Ryan and Alina's relationship starts out fairly innocent. Just a friend lending an ear, and support, to another friend. What starts as something sweet tur [...]


    11. Amazing read that was beautifully written and created I knew I was going to love this book after just reading the first chapter! I really loved the character's of Alina and Ryan both been thrown together because of there previous partners. They had formed a bond that no one could break fantastic chemistry between these two character's ! Can't wait to read more by Lilly Avalon love her writing style and her creativity!!



    12. 2.5 StarsOverall Opinion: Meh. This was a little less than "just ok" in the rating scale. I really had issues with feeling uninspired by their relationship, or even the characters themselves. I think I was sometimes more entertained by the side characters and family members, but there were so many comments about side characters that were really unnecessary and left me confused at the end thinking "why did the author even put that in?". I'm guess the author was trying to make them more important [...]


    13. Find this and other reviews at Ramblings of a Daydreamer.If you’ve read any of Lilly Avalon’s short stories, novellas, or novels, you’ll know her as an erotic romance author. But, surprise! She mixed things up a bit with Unexpected, a sweet friends-to-more contemporary New Adult story.Alina and Ryan find themselves in similar situations. They seem like unlikely allies, but their shared bad experience leads to them becoming friends. I really enjoyed watching Alina and Ryan form a bond. They [...]


    14. I was given a copy of this book by the Author for an honest review.UNEXPECTED is a sexy,hot read. I fell in love with the characters of Ryan and Alina, they are good for each other. Alina has just received news from her boyfriend that he wants a break from their relationship. She cannot get a break from the crappy day that she is having, she is late going in for work and ends up losing her job. She goes back to the apartment that she shares with her friend and takes a shower. While she is in the [...]


    15. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.This book was awesome. It had me sucked in from the very first page. Alina and Ryan have such great chemistry that I could feel it right on the page. I had my fingers crossed for them the entire book. The love they have for each other was beautiful. Love like that isn't normal and that just made it even more great to read.I absolutely love Alina. This book made me relate because we all have bad days, but poor Alina had the absolute worst. I swea [...]


    16. This book was completely Unexpected! It was a great read. It reminded me of The Other Side of Someday, which I also adored. I highly recommend this book. Very well written. I just love when the author takes the time for the characters to actually fall in love. Also, I love it when they don't tell, but show what the characters are feeling through their actions Lovely! Very well done!!


    17. I just loved this book! What a happy read. Alina has what I feel are typical bad days but she had them all in one day!I just adored Ryan, her savior. I wondered if Ryan had this set up since he wanted to date Alina instead of Victoria.Victoria and Drew are perfect for each other. They need to remember "You will loose them the way you got them". I don't think either will be faithfulD No cliffhanger!! A real ending, no doubts. no fears and no questions.



    18. **2.5 stars -- ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review**When starting Unexpected, it read very much like someone telling their friends a story. As I like to live the story when I'm reading, this was a bit of a struggle for me initially. There were also certain things in the story that seemed to be too much of a stretch, and were slightly unbelievable. (For example: One out of three light bulbs burning out would not cause that much darkness)As the story progressed, however, I [...]


    19. Favorite Quotes:“I’ve met my quota of bad things for the day. It’s probably best for me to avoid leaving the house at this point.”“There is something about sharing a sunset with someone you care about. It’s profoundly spiritual, as if it connects you to that person in a way nothing else can. It may have only lasted a brief moment in the entire span of our lives, but it’s something I’ll always carry with me no matter what happens tomorrow.”“I want to hold this moment, with her [...]


    20. ARC received from author in exchange for an honest review "Not every story ends the same. Some of them have a twist. Some things in life are unexpected"I was pleased to give this one a read when the author asked me to. I found this to be a quick kinda sorta friends to lovers story. I have to add the kinda sorta because while I genuinely appreciated the fact that both Ryan and Alina realized that they should be friends before attempting any relationship, the progression of their friendship was la [...]


    21. Unexpected is a quick read. It has its steamy moments, so beware. Easily bored? the first 2 chapters will light a fire for sure! The setup was a little quick, but like I said a beach read or a weekend depending on your speed.Alina was a sweet girl who has had bad luck so I fell for her and I seriously hated the world with her. As for the story, some parts were a bit predictable. I enjoyed the characters. For instance, creating Alina in a way that makes you really feel her pain. When the author a [...]


    22. I didn't know what to expect when I began this book. As it started I kind of rolled my eyes a bit: girl having a terrible day, then finding out her best friend and boyfriend are having an affair behind her back. But, as the book went on I realized there were so many things I LOVED about it. First, I love that Alina and Ryan became friends first. They supported each other and cared for each other. Even when they both began to admit their feelings, things moved slowly. So often in books now they s [...]


    23. I absolutely adored this book!! I am a huge fan of books where the main characters are friends first and then find more. And this book is honestly a breath of fresh air. It wasn't like every other book out there. There were so many sweet moments but then so many hot and sexy moments. I immediately fell in love with Ryan. Alina I totally felt for, I mean really not only is your boyfriend cheating on you, but with your supposed best friend. So needless to say she is having a really crappy day, but [...]

Review:Points:Plot: Some TwistsMood: Light-HeartedPace: SteadyCharacters: Developed Writing: GreatLevel of Violence: MildSexual Content: New AdultThoughts:- How did the main character's relationship work?Alina and Ryan's relationship work in a way only they can under the situation. I thought they had build up to the relationship through a connection.- What would I change about the novel if I could?Nothing that comes to the mind.

    25. I bow down to the queen of romance and for giving us the book boyfriends we love and constantly swoon over :)I love devlin but OMG I think I've fallen more for Ryan.Ryan is sweet, hot, sexy, romantic and just totally loveable I really enjoyed this story of two people who come together after finding out their partners have been cheating and find themselves in an unexpected situation falling in loveother hot romance :)


    26. **MEGAN'S REVIEW**I am at a war with myself on how this review should go. I want to break it up in two parts. The part I didn’t like and didn’t connect with and the part I really enjoyed. The parts that made me smile.I don’t like puzzles and I hate rollercoaster’s. Put them together and I am extremely confused. I hate to say this but this is my best explanation on my feelings as I read Unexpected. I was intrigued by the blurb, then when I started reading the first chapter I could have gi [...]


    27. Thank you to the author for the book in exchange for a honest review. Seems like Alina just can't catch a break. She's out of work and the girl she thought was her best friend is sleeping with her boyfriend. Not only was she her best friend but she's her roommate, and now she's got nowhere to go. Luckily the guy that is the ex of the ex-friend/roommate is there and he offers his couch until she can figure something out. He's a great guy and they have sparks SO many sparks, there could be firewor [...]
