Unexpected, Book 2
The lies between my parents and I came to light and now I’m working on a new life for myself. Along the way, I have my trusty superhero, Mason, to lean on when I have a hard time standing or when my crazy ex-boyfriend continues to feel he has a claim on me.
Porter has trouble understanding that there hasn’t been an ‘us’ for more than three years plus all the issues he had brought upon himself. My father was right, drugs do kill. My other concern is the growing feelings I am having regarding Mason. There’s something between us I want to explore but I keep getting mixed signals. Here, I thought that after telling my parents about my lies and having their full support, things wouldn’t be as complicated as they are.
My parents divorced before I even made my entrance into this world. My father has been obsessed with that love for years while my mother searches for love in all the wrong places. I don’t want a place to call home or a girl I can claim as mine. Except… Ainsley Janine –better known as ‘Nine’—has some special power that makes me question my preferences. The more I try to stay away from her, the more she pulls me closer.
Exploring the possibilities of having something steady in my life isn’t a problem; it’s the long term that worries me. In addition to that, the scumbag she dated years ago keeps popping up everywhere we go. If I could use my license to kill, maybe I can stop worrying about one thing and concentrate on what to do with the green eyed girl who keeps me awake most nights.
Review: You can read this novel as a standalone but you will better understand the characters if you read the first volume. I think it can be confusing without reading the first one (which is a very good book, so read it !) It’s the story about AJ and Mason, told in dual POV.
Who says AJ, says her guys : her fathers Gabe and Chris, and her brothers MJ and JC. You can’t not love them. Her fathers are hyper protective and her brothers are… what brothers are 😀 they made me giggling more time than once. I’m in love with this family.
AJ, who is a strong woman despite her past, struggles against her feelings for Mason because she knows that if their story ends badly, she will lose her best friend.
Mason has issues too. As he isn’t a long-term relationship type of guy, he knows he will hurt her and he doesn’t want to. I wanted to slap him to makes things clear in his head !
A lot of things happen in this book, I can’t reveal more without spoiling.
I cried, I laughed, I wanted to punch someone (I will not say who, you’ll find out).
I like Claudia Y. Burgoa’s writing and I’m happy to have the next novel to read it right now !
