Trayton couldn’t explain why he wanted her. He just knew she’d be his, regardless of her past. His past wasn’t sunshine and roses. Then their past crossed in a way neither could have predicted, but Trayton’s need for Alex never wavered. Can these two tragic soul get together and heal?
Alex has spent four years not wanting to trust or let anyone get close to her other than her best friend, Kass, and her uncle after her life was tragedly turned upside down at sixteen and she lost so much. Kass is a great friend and I love her attitude with things. Her and Mark need their own story. Trayton comes from a shady past and sure he has a reputation, but things change for him with that brief encounter with Alex at the basketball game. They both have secrets they don’t want to share with the other, but when a person from the past has Alex questioning who Trayton really is once again things are not what they seem. Will their past keep them from getting together? Will this turn out to have a happy ending ? or Can the world really hand them more pain?
"If you can hold on through the rain you’ll learn some of the best moments in life are . . . unexpected."
There are unexpected things in the story along with expected things. I was captivated by this story until the end when I feel like things just sort of ended. Questions were not answered and the epilogue just felt like it was rushed in trying to move the story forward, which is why I’m not able to give this the five star rating it has the potential for.
Expect the Unexpected was a really enjoyable read its not your typical college romance story and had a few twists and turns along the way. It had great flow and strong character development its definitely a book I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
At the age of sixteen Alex's life was turned completely upside down when she lost her family and found herself all alone, she had a loving uncle to take care of her but over the years she's built walls around herself not wanting to be hurt ever again. Whilst attending college she meets Trayton he has a reputation with the ladies but as they get to know each other she sees a different side to him and although he has some caveman tendencies and is holding something back about his family could he be the one to finally break down her wall's?
We meet Alex whose life was turned upside down 4 years ago when she was 16. Alex lost everything she loved she lost her family. Alex went to live with her uncle who was there for Alex during her toughest and lowest times. Fast forward 4 years aged 20 Alex has grown into a strong yet vulnerable girl. Alex has built a lot of walls around her to protect herself from hurting like she did all those years ago. Alex is determined to make her late parents proud of the young lady that she's become.
At college Alex meets man about campus Trayton. Trayton is a complete ladies man and is more than happy to live up to his reputation it is only as Alex begins to know the real Trayton she sees that he is not the quite the ladies man as she first thought.
Trayton is a absolute diamond to the people that he cares about and lets in to see the real him but these people are very few and far between. Trayton is lovable, funny, protective and loyal to his family and the ones he lets in.
This is a beautiful love story about a sweet genuine couple.
Alex lost her parents when she was 16 and she has never recovered from it. At the same time she lost her brother in a different way. Her friend Kass has been there for her through it all and is the only one that knows what life has been like for Alex. Alex lives her life but does not trust easily. Trayton is your heartthrob and yet he is mysterious and dangerous. Family is important to him, but what they do is not what everyone can accept. When he meets Alex he knows that he wants her but he also knows she is hiding something. How can he get her to trust him? This had a few plot twist along the way. The story was adventurous and entertaining. There was no sex in this book and although you thought it was going to eventually happen, it didn’t and the best part was that it took nothing away from the story. You got a dominant alpha male with an angel who held onto her values. You also got a love story. The characters were well developed. Secondary Character also played a huge part in making this plot work. I think the author was clever by introducing us to these secondary characters as we are left wanting to find out more about them. Overall I really enjoyed this book and would not hesitate to recommend it.
