Trayton is the popular guy of the college. Despite some of the disreputable things that's happened in his life, he is very dedicated and loyal to his family.
Alexandria (Alex) struggles with her emotions after what happened to her family four years ago. She is very "closed off" and the only person who can get close to her is Kass, her best friend. She also has her uncle and Lucas, a childhood friend.
Alex and Trayton meet at a football match for the first time and although it's not insta love, something starts to bloom. Trayton finds Alex to be adorable whilst Alex thinks he is annoying, although secretly she quite likes him. She can't get past the pain of how much she has lost and the situation with Trip, her brother is a heavy load that she carries around.
Trayton and Alex have a tentative relationship to begin with. Neither of them likes to talk about themselves and when Alex finds out about Trayton's background, she doesn't know quite what to do. Then she finds out that Lucas is no longer the person she used to know. Trayton is Lucas' nemesis! Eventually, the details of what really happened to Alex's parents and her brother come to light and it's a sad sad state of affair.
It's an impressive and credible storyline. The interactions between Alex and Trayton are fascinating to say the least. They are both strong in their own ways and just as stubborn. An adorable couple! The friendship between Alex and Kass is amazing. As for Lucas, he has all the good intentions but he can be so irritating! I like the way the story gradually unfolds, keeping me guessing, especially about Trip, right to the last minute. I can honestly say that it's one of my favourites New Adult novel so far this year. It has romance, suspense, love and tragedy. It's also a bit of a tear jerker. "Expect the Unexpected!" Great conclusion. It would be nice to see what becomes of Trip, Lucas and Kass. I would fully recommend.
I was kindly issued with an eARC. This is an honest review.
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?
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.
