Blair is looking for an escape.

West is looking for a connection.

One down and out woman. One isolated rock star. Life at the top is lonely, but so is life at the bottom.

Blair is just looking for someone to take the edge off her crappy life. Dull the pain, breathe a little life into her neglected body. A chance meeting at a bar leads to a night of passion. No names, no personal details. Just sex.
Well, it wasn't personal until she sees the guy standing on a stage ten meters in front of her. How the hell didn't she realize that the guy who blew her mind is the guitarist out of that dirty rock'n'roll band, Affliction? And why is he chasing her down the street? And how does he know her name?

Sometimes you find the things you didn't even know you were looking for in the most unexpected places.


Unexpected is quite a short read, I’m pretty sure that all the books in this series are relatively short reads as well, so I will keep this review on the shorter side so I don’t give too much away. I normally am not a fan of shorter books, what can I say I liked books that are apically long, but as it turns out I do on occasion need a book that’s shorter in length, and so I turned to this series.

I actually liked the character of Blair, she wasn’t exactly the standard heroine, and I loved that about her. She has some past history that she copes with by finding available men in bar, learning nothing about them, and having her way with them. But hey this is a romance so of course one of these guys gets hooked on her. Enter West, who it turns out is not just some random dude, nope he is the lead singer in a rock band.

This book definitely is steamy, so if that is something that you are looking for then this is so your book. And I liked West as the hero of the story. He seems to have his own damaged past he is dealing with, so maybe the two of them aren’t exactly the best people to be together, but then again I liked that about them.

There are some interesting events within the book, but I really don’t want to ruin anything for future readers. I will say that my biggest issue with this book, and the reason I didn’t rate it higher is because I felt like everything happened in such a whirlwind that it didn’t feel as authentic as I would have liked. Other than that though it was a good read and I enjoyed it, so if you are looking for a short and steamy read with a hot rock star this may be the book for you.
