I dove right into the series with the fifth book so of course I was apprehensive but I was assured that my usual series in order OCD would not kick in, and everyone was correct. This book does well as a stand-alone. However, me being who I am can only advise you to start from the beginning LOL
The title of this book is ridiculously SPOT ON!! This entire story is Unexpected. I will not go into a play by play, but just know that things are not always what they seem and whatever you think is happening, may not actually be what is happening ;) It is very intriguing to read and it does keep you on your toes. I LOVED IT!
I really enjoyed every aspect of our leads in this story and they complimented each other very well. Obviously there is a taboo element to this story with the BF father trope, but it doesn't feel taboo. It reads very well and perfectly.
This is a very *happy sigh* story and I think anyone who decides to pick it up will very much enjoy it!

Unexpected was a perfect title! Everytime the characters turned around something totally unexpected happened.
I love a forbidden romance and this book has a biggie. Nicola falls for her friends father. OH MY!!!
This book had a lot of story packed in it. It was a fast paced read and I finished in a day. I really enjoyed their journey. I fell for Neil right along with Nicola. He was pretty much perfect. They completed and perfected each other.
Knowing this is part of a series I will definitely be going back and reading the others and will also be hoping for more of the other Friends stories.
Nicola is stuck in a dead end job and is barely making ends meet. She happens to run into Rebecca's father one day and the next thing she knows, he has hired the interior decorating company she works for. Like most of the work the company does, Nicola ends up doing most of it. Over the course of a few months, while working together on the project, Neil and Nicola grow close. It starts off as the two of them getting pizza and sitting on the floor of the empty office talking about work to them eating dinner almost every night at Nicola's apartment talking about pretty much everything. It's obvious they have feelings for the other person, but they aren't quite sure what to do about it.
Eventually it gets to the point where they can't hold back anymore. They enter into a relationship, albeit a secret one, that neither of them saw coming, but one that felt very right. Their relationship progressed at a pace that most people would think was too fast, but for them it made complete sense. Neil and Nicola became so comfortable with each other and that was one of the things I loved most. I loved Neil & Nicola's relationship. From the start, it felt very genuine. It could have easily went the way of "Oh, Neil is definitely going through a mid life crisis or something," but I never once thought that. Neil proved time and time again that the feelings he had for Nicola were the real deal. I never doubted his feelings, but when they went to tell Nicola's parents about them, that really cemented it for me. It turns out they were absolutely perfect for each other.
I have read plenty of books where the man was older than the woman, but I have never read one where the man was old enough to be the woman's father. I usually avoid those story lines because it kind of weirds me out, but I love Ariadne's books so I was more than willing to give Unexpected a shot. The author never tells us the exact age difference between them, but I don't think it would have mattered. The way she wrote their relationship made their age difference a non issue. So if you are like me and maybe have some reservations about this story line, you have have nothing to worry about.
