Nicole is a second grade teacher. She is beautiful, sweet, cares for her students but she can't quite grow in longterm relationships. Why? well something mysterious happened in her past and this mystery is why she believes marriage and kids are not for her. During her first weeks of teaching her heart falls for little Ryan, a student in her class who is acting up due to the death of his parents. In trying to help him out, she contacts his guardian Dailan, a hot, Irish, 29 year old lawyer. Dailan, is total guy's guy and well, he is trying his best with his nephew. Anyway, upon meeting each other, sparks fly and well the romance begins.
What I loved about this book are the characters; they are likeable, engaging and funny. The romance that develops between them is believable and it is not instant, but happens over time.
The book has a twist at the end which was like WOW but it was perfect for this book. This is a great read, it has no cliffy and has a HEA. Great gem of a book.
Nicole Morgan is a second grade teacher whose past haunts her and prevents her from committing to a relationship long term. She is loving, caring and a great teacher, but doesn't have a good relationship with her family due to her past, except for her brother Justin who she loves dearly. When a student in her class continually misbehaves she is forced to contact his guardian.
Bring on the sexy Irishman!
Dailan O'Maley is a hot as hell lawyer, who is the legal guardian of his 8 year old nephew Ryan. Although a bit of a jerk at first, he is charming, charismatic and completely sexy. After an unexpected start the two embark on a tentative relationship, never making plans for their next encounter. As things progress and become more frequent, titles are given and Nicole forms a strong relationship with both Dailan and Ryan.
Through lack of communication, mishaps, a meddling mother of a student, an evil work colleague and the inevitability of Dailan and Ryan going back to Ireland, Nicole and Dailan's relationship breaks down. However, through loss, heartbreak and a near horrific event, the couple find their way back to each other and both profess their love.
The ending in this story is just WOW! I was definitely not expecting the secret of Nicole's past to be what it was, but was amazed at how perfectly it fit. I loved the ending and thought it rounded out everything beautifully.
Nicole's families attitude towards her was heartbreaking and had me feeling really annoyed. While I was glad that the riffs were mended, when her secret was revealed I couldn't believe how angry I was at them for way they treated her. I loved Justin her brother and his emails and tears were absolutely shed for him and how his part of the story panned out.
Beth has done a great job with this story. Her writing style is a pleasure to read and flowed easily. I loved these characters, they pulled you in even when they annoyed you and I can't wait to read where their lives take them next in Unplanned Life.
I have no idea what just happened to me.
So Unplanned Lesson was like one of those Lifetime Television for Women movies that you get sucked into on a Sunday afternoon, only to get excited to know that you'll get to watch it again at 9pm.
Nicole and Dailan have to be some of the best heart-warming characters I've ever read. I fell in love with both of them immediately. Okay, so it took a few chapters to warm up to Dailan, but I love guys that start out like jerks - it makes it harder to redeem themselves...and suddenly I'm in love. ARG! So amazingly good.
The ending. OH! This ending. I felt like I was suddenly swept into a whirlwind, and I needed it to slow down! Before I even had a chance to stop sobbing from the chapter before, I was now processing a whole new plot twist. I was completely taken off guard and hadn't predicted any of it!
So I guess now I'll be adding all of Beth Rinyu's books to my To Read shelf, because I was completely impressed with this one.
