Toni's Review of Yours, Unexpectedly by Susan Fox ***4 Stars***



Merilee has planned her wedding to Matt since they were seven. Yet with the big day drawing near, she has serious cold feet. Her three sisters have found sexy new loves and she envies them the passion that has been lacking with Matt. Though Matt is shocked when she calls off the wedding, he has to admit that he, too, has a craving for something more. But there's no sense letting their Mexican Riviera honeymoon cruise go to waste. So they go: as friends, not as lovers. On a cruise where anything goes, they'll have a chance to be adventurous and test their limits - including their sexual ones. And they may discover all the excitement they will need to sustain a lifetime together...

*******************

Who says soul mates should get married and live happily ever after?  Not Merilee!

Merilee Fallon has always loved Matt Townsend and now days before her wedding she is rethinking forever with him.  As the days approach to her wedding, her sisters are showing up to be part of her happy day.  The problem is so is their love lives.  During their travels to the wedding all the sisters have found love.  Now faced with the passion and fire of her sister’s new lives, Merilee gets a glimpse to what is missing in hers.  Determined to not settle for a mediocre life she calls off the wedding.

Matt just got blindsided.  The love of his life just broke his heart and now he is unsure what to do.  He thought they were happy and were always meant to be together.  Now the other half of his soul has been taken away and he is stuck with a non-refundable honeymoon.  What’s a man to do?  Go the Mexican Riviera and take some time to think.

No longer lovers and barely friends, they are now taking their ex-honeymoon cruise together.  Old feelings don’t die easily though.  Jealously and passion is ignited and with the new feelings come some unexpected and exhilarating results.  This is one steamy and sexy cruise!

This is book #4 in the Wild Ride to Love series, and more than likely the last one, since all the sisters have found love.  While I bet the series would be great read start to finish, I have only read this one.  I usually don’t do that, but after reading some reviews, people were commenting that this can be read as a standalone.  This is very true.  I absolutely enjoyed this book without having read the prior stories.  So don’t let that stop you from picking up this gem.

Ms. Fox writes a believable novel of two people finding what was missing in their relationship.  At times it had me looking at my own relationship with a different light.  I enjoyed the play of emotions and the journey they took to reunite.  This book is not to be missed.  It is a lovely read with the perfect amount of sizzling heat.  A great book is one that draws you in and you experience the emotions right along with the characters.  You will find that in Yours, Unexpectedly.  So don’t sit back and wait, get this book today!


Thanks for reading! - Toni
