Book Description

Stand-alone - Book Two in the Intentional Series.

I don’t want to hear about how happy she is, how everything turned out just the way it should have. Well, it didn’t. She should have been with me.

Cade, the gorgeous song man, has every reason to steer clear of commitment and train his soulful eyes, heart-melting dimples, and sexy voice on every beauty clamoring for his attention. So why is it that he finds himself truly, deeply and unintentionally, fixed on the one woman who is not so easily swept away?

The sequel to Intentional, the debut romantic novel by MK Harkins, Unintentional is the heart-racing new work that follows the tangled thread of Cade in the aftermath of his heartbreak in losing the one woman he thought was his soul mate. After taking a hiatus from his job as an engineer, as well as his role in the band as lead singer, Cade reemerges in the Seattle music scene. Enter Laurel, the tenacious and determined music agent. Laurel is determined to sign him, no matter how clearly reluctant he is. Though they try to resist one another romantically, the magnetism is as immediate as it is powerful.

Unintentional offers readers an intricate, riveting story about the fraught paces of love, while also offering strains of heartwarming humor. With rich detail, authentic characters, and plenty of blood-pumping romance, Unintentional is a moving and multilayered look at how love can slip through our fingers, only to be pulled back again at the most surprising, stirring moments.

Editorial Reviews


I'd say it's perfectly balanced, and, as we all, as romance readers, want it to end--no cliffhanger, no happy-for-now, no WTF--just a satisfying HEA that will leave you with a dreamy sigh and a contented smile.   Nancy Saling Thompson, Author

M.K. Harkins blew my mind with Intentional. It certainly went in a direction I didn't expect it to go, with Unintentional, she did it again and made my heart break for Cade all over again. She has a bright and shiny future ahead of her an intricate storyteller who can share her own emotions with the words she writes.   Amy McGlone, Turn The Page Blog Reviews

Read it fast and furious like I did. It is NOT at all a chick lit or romance novel it is much, much more. "Reading Renee"

Wonderful job Ms. Harkins! There are not enough stars in this rating system. This series is still at the top of my favorites!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A thoroughly enjoyable escape! May 25, 2014
I’m a tough reader. I can’t help it. I’m slow with little time to do it, so I have to choose my material wisely. If a book doesn’t grab me, like, instantly, if the writing is mediocre, if the voice doesn’t quite fit, then I toss that book like a hot tamale. I won’t review it, because, for the most part, I don’t review books I don’t like or finish. Obviously, since I’ve posted this review, you’ve come to realize, Unintentional is NONE of those things.

First, let me start by saying I read Harkins’ debut, Intentional, and I really enjoyed it. In a world now slathered neck-deep in smut and titillation, it was refreshing to read a sweet, clean romance. And Harkins’ follow-up adopts a similar course, though the author did add a bit more spice.

Now, I have a lot to say about the story itself, but what struck me most—immediately, in fact—when I started reading Unintentional, is the tremendous growth MK Harkins has shown since her debut. To be honest, I was astounded. Rarely do you see this much growth between books, especially in this genre. And yet, there it is. This is an author who listened to her fans and critics alike and cared enough to hone her craft. I respect that—a lot.

Unintentional is an easy read, and that’s a very good thing, as it should be. A book should never be about the author or the words, or the words being a tribute to the author, but rather the story, and Harkins manages that expertly. She’s dedicated to bringing her readers an enjoyable escape with relatable characters, and, this time around, there’s even a little bit of the whodunit, which surprised me, and actually had me guessing—wrongly, I might add, because she threw in enough red herrings to throw me off balance. That rarely happens to me, by the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unintentional – A Wonderful Addition June 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Another great book by M.K. Harkins – once I started reading this story I simply couldn’t put it down! Although I admit I didn’t want to rush through the book because I didn’t want the story to end, it was excellent from start to finish.
I do recommend you read Intentional first as I feel it provides the hunger for “more Cade please!” This gives the reader the opportunity to understand the past relationship between Cade and Mattie and why we find Cade in such a sad place to start with.
I was delighted M.K. decided to continue and expand on Cade’s life – his character is so appealing. The electricity between Cade and Laurel is created with such raw feeling; with their interaction you could really feel both their love and pain throughout the storyline.
M.K. Harkin’s writing style is beautiful, emotional and definitely easy to read. Although I forced myself to take a break (just to make a cuppa!), I found I could put this book down assured I could pick up and continue without the need to go back a few pages.
There are many twists and turns to the plot but it ends in such a clever and fantastic way. Such great characters and a great storyline – I’m curious which character M.K. will choose for her next book – keep up the good work.

I absolutely could not wait to read this book! When I read Intentional, I knew Cade would be trouble. He simply stole my heart which ended up breaking my heart. How is that even possible??? Well, MK Harkins manages to do that to you. =) With that being said, I'm admitting that in Unintentional, I fell head over heels in love with him.

Much like Mattie & Jeremy’s story in Intentional, Cade & Laurel’s was just as gripping. Unintentional did not lack in angst, mystery or suspense. Tears were shed, laughter was had and face palms could be experienced throughout the story. Not only do we get to experience all the above, we are introduced to probably one of the most humorous sidekicks in Laurel’s assistant. There were plenty of times she had me in tears from laughter.

I appreciate once again the multiple POV’s so we can get a better picture of what each character is undergoing and feeling. I think it is especially important with the time period this story covers. Don’t be fooled, there are still many times when you may want to shake sense into either Laurel or Cade.

My suggestion... Read Intentional first. Fall in love with the characters and then read Unintentional. You will not be disappointed. To this day, I can't listen to "Hey Ho" by The Lumineers without thinking of Cade... *Swoon*

In all honesty, Unintentional might just be MK Harkins best work yet. Congrats MK Harkin's an another PHENOMENAL story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Drama, love, romance it has it all June 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another great book and ya know on the last page it says there will be a book 3. NO cliffhanger either! Just more of the characters we love and those we love to hate.

clapping eee 3366097What you get in book 2 is the continuation of a few characters so there is familiarity. Loving Jeremy and Mattie in book one brings them back for a few memorable scenes. This one is much more intricate in the reveals. There is a new character Kelly and her sidekick assistant Rodney. Both of them are not at all trusting and she is wanting to steal Hard Reign from Laurel. There is an element of danger when it comes to these two.

As for the character of Laurel, I loved her! I also loved her assistant Sarah. Both together bring a light hearted comedy effect to the book. There is a certain fear of elevators that Laurel has and Sarah is scared of flying. Things like this make you feel connected to them, they seem normal. It makes then not only likable, but lovable and real.

The buildup was a long one. Well worth the wait because there are a few people who could be evil enough to try to break up not only the band but Laurel and Cade. So believe me this is a thrilling chick lit read! Grab it up

Read it fast and furious like I did. It is NOT at all a chick lit or romance novel it is much much more

More About the Author

MK has always been a voracious reader. After hitting a dry spell of reading material, she decided to write the kind of book she'd like to read. This resulted in the creation of her debut novel, Intentional. (Award for Best Sweet Romance - eFestival of Words- August 2014)

Unintentional, the second book in the series, is based on the life of one of the characters in Intentional. Unintentional was written as a stand-alone book.

Breaking Braydon, another stand-alone book, is now available on Amazon.

When she's not writing novels, she likes to spend her free time traveling the world, splashing in mud puddles (She lives in Seattle, what can she say?), watching movies and reading (!)

MK also runs her own business in her current hometown of Mercer Island, Washington.

She LOVES to hear from her readers!
