Review: Love Unexpected by Louise Bay



When the fierce redhead with the beautiful ass walks into the local bar, I can tell she’s passing through. And I’m looking for distraction while I’m in town—a hot hook-up and nothing more before I head back to the city.

If she has secrets, I don’t want to know them.

If she feels good underneath me, I don’t want to think about it too hard.

If she’s my future, I don’t want to see it.

I’m Blake McKenna and I’m about to teach this Boston socialite how to forget every man who came before me.

When the future I had always imagined crumbles before my very eyes. I grab my two best friends and take a much needed vacation to the country.

My plan of swearing off men gets railroaded when on my first night of my vacation, I meet the hottest guy on the planet. I decide he could be the distraction I might just need.

I’m certainly not going to reveal my deepest secrets to him as we steal away each night hoping no one will notice.

And the last thing I’m going to do is fall in love for the first time in my life.

My name is Mackenzie Locke and I haven’t got a handle on men. Not even a little bit. Not until Blake.

My Review:

Love Unexpected follows Mackenzie, a woman who is addicted to the idea of love and happily ever after. She gets an awakening when she decides to go to “love” therapy and she drags her friends along. They have one night before they have to disconnect from the world and connect with what they want.

Enter in Blake. He just happens to be at the bar that Mackenzie are her friends are going to to unwind. Mackenzie’s friends talk her into having a one night stand, something she never does. She agrees and decides that Blake is the guy.

Only, he’s more than just a one night stand.

I love the idea of this book. It’s cute, sexy and funny. I love that I get to see a character like Mackenzie learn about herself and learn that she needs to stop giving so much of herself away to a man who’s not going to stick around for the long run.

I love the circumstances in this book. I haven’t read a book about love therapy before. I think it’s a fun concept and I’m really loving that she found someone at a retreat.

I definitely need to pick up more of Louise Bay’s books in the future. Loved this book so much!

4/5 Stars
