Book Review - Unexpectedly Hers by Jamie Beck

ABOUT THE BOOK

By day, bashful wallflower Emma Duffy works at her family’s bed-and-breakfast. By night, she secretly pens erotic romance hot enough to melt the snow in their cozy Rockies town.
But Emma’s real life is about to heat up when her mother books the entire inn to a professional snowboarder, hoping the publicity will put them on the map. In a karmic twist of fate, that guest is Wyatt Lawson, the man with whom Emma had shared the secret one-night stand that became the inspiration for her novel and its dreamy hero. Worse, a film crew is documenting his comeback just as her debut is about to hit the shelves. Emma’s only saving grace is that Wyatt doesn’t remember her—and hopefully he never will.
When Wyatt arrives in Sterling Canyon for several weeks of intense training, the last tumble he expects to take is falling for a girl, especially one as shy as Emma. Unlike groupies with their hidden agendas, she isn’t using him—or so he believes…until the film crew uncovers Emma’s pen name and steamy novel.
Wyatt’s comeback run can withstand a fall or two, but can his heart recover from this crash and burn?



REVIEW

I'd describe Unexpectedly Hers as more Women's Lit than Romance.  Sure, there is plenty of good steamy romance packed inside the book, but that discounts the amount of story and self discovery in the book as well, for both Emma and Wyatt.  This story really works in so many ways I can't help but recommend the read  for anyone who is looking for a meaty story, a little romance, and little adventure along the way.


OVERALL RATING - 5 STARS!
MATURITY RATING - 18+ a little steamy
