Author: Heidi McLaughlin
Reading Level: New Adult
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 2nd 2013
Review Source: Author

I expected a life of music.
I expected to raise my son.
It took one look to make everything change.
I never expected happiness.

I never expected to find her.
I never expected to feel desire.
I never expected I’d be a family man.
I never expected to be loved.
I never expected to fall in love.

They say you should expect the unexpected, I didn’t realize my unexpected would be the forever kind.

I love being back in Beaumont again and revisiting with some of the familiar characters I fell (drooled) for in Forever My Girl. This time I was prepared because I knew that once I began reading this book there was no putting it down until the end. Hence the 4am bedtime. This book and series fall under the best book hangovers ever. It's not your typical contemporary that boy meets girl and end with a simple happy ever after. These characters are real and deal with real issues everyone might face in their lives or worse. So it's hard to believe in happy ever after when so deep in troubles. Doesn't mean it doesn't exist it just takes hard work and effort to find it and capture it to make it yours. So if you are one to love a fantastic story where shit (excuse my french) doesn't fall into place magically then this is the book and definitely the series for you. You can't help but be swept away in this non-typical love story!

In this chapter of the series, the story is dedicated to Harrison that we met towards the end of Forever My Girl. He is the drummer in the band with Liam (hubba hubba). Harrison decided to move to Beaumont just like Liam because he felt that he could provide his son with a better life there. Maybe, just maybe he could have been influence by a recently widowed Katelyn and her twin daughters to want to stay also. To be witness to the chemistry that Harrison and Katelyn were denying one another was torture at times. You sat there on the sidelines wanting to push them together as you cheered them along. This is the part that I mentioned is not your typical love story. It didn't just happen between these two characters. It was work and sacrifice and coming to terms with themselves and their demons and some old skeletons in the closet. So when they did have a moment here or there be it a look, touch or more, it was like being stranded in a desert and having no water then out of the blue you find this oasis with water and nothing else matters in the world at that exact moment. It was that rewarding to see their relationship build romantically but also with each others children.

Heidi McLaughlin didn't just focus on Harrison and Katleyn though, she incorporated Liam and Josie and their son which are just as pivotal to this story as Katelyn and Harrison kids too. We were also treated again to the getting dual POVs between Harrison and Katelyn so we were able to see inside their minds and know what exactly they were feeling. That is what I called fantastic for reading!!!!

Recommend HIGHLY to everyone that is of age to read New Adult since it does contains detailed sexual situations and has some strong language. If my reflection captures your interest in picking up this book and you have not read the previous books, I also highly recommend you start with Forever My Girl so you can follow along the story and not be confused or questions certain scenes in My Unexpected Forever. It's shouldn't be read as a stand alone or picked up from second book. You won't regret beginning from the beginning with Liam and Josie's story. It's a Rockstar kind of Romance!!!
