Ben Miller met the love of his life the day he crossed paths with Elle James in their high school cafeteria. New to Beaumont, he took a chance when he approached her. Their first encounter was everything his mother ever read to him about fairy tales. He saw the girl who would be his forever.
From the moment Elle James met Ben Miller they’ve been best friends. Everything they did, they did it together, from late night study sessions, family vacations, throwing bottles off the water tower, going to prom and finally moving to California for college.
However, after the almost tragic accident where she nearly lost her twin sister, Elle’s life hasn’t been the same, and neither has her relationship with Ben.
One fateful decision changes the scope of Ben and Elle’s relationship. For one, it means a new beginning. For the other, it means change.
What is going on?!
Seriously, What is going on?!
Ladies and Gentlemen, I’d like to introduce you to the world’s Most Self Centered female protagonist EVER!!!!
I can’t wrap my head around the fact that this is truly the same author that wrote Forever My Girl. First Ronan and now this?
A lot of people who love to read would understand the anticipating excitement of reading a book by one of their most cherished author but only a few would understand the sheer disappointment and sadness of losing that feeling.
My Unexpected Love could have been a sweet love story about a friend to lovers relationship but Elle Ruined it all for. Her whinny, self absorbed nature boggled my mind! I want to rave and rant. I want to spill spoilers and dissect every ridiculous decision Elle ever made but that would make this review as ridiculous as Elle. I am sorry but no no no no no.
Ben isn’t all that great but compared to Elle, he is a joy to read about. I will spill one spoiler, I am so glad Ben finally decided to take his future into his own hands and not be shackled by Elle, who lets face is, always takes advantage of him.
Besides my rant (sorry), there really isn’t much I liked about this book and that breaks my heart. Will I continue to read Heidi McLaughlin’s books? I am not sure anymore. The last two books published have ruined me. That’s two strikes, one strike left…so, maybe one last time? (Only cause I am hung up on the fact that it’s Heidi’s books).
