“Her Unexpected Hero was a quick, fun and sweet read. Perfect for a lazy weekend.”
~ Under the Covers

Alyssa is on her way to her parents house to lick her wounds after a bad break up. But one bad luck after another, she ends up at the airport for hours in a rut of delayed planes. Call it bad luck, but this leads to an unforgettable one night stand with a very sexy, very rich man. Maybe it’s fate because, that night will not be the last she sees him.

Jackson, a widowed work-a-holic still grieves the loss of his daughter and wife even after four years had past. He has immersed himself in meaningless one night stands until he finally meets the girl who intrigued him. A woman that will go against everything he is used to. He is shocked that for the first time, the girl didn’t want anything more. But after seeing her months later, he can’t help but attempt for something more.

I enjoyed Allysa and Jackson’s story. The courtship was sweet and romantic, and even the angst between them was cute. The small town theme was complete with meddling elders and nosy neighbors. There was plenty of humor, and the plot kept me reading. My only gripe is Allysa’s deception or lies by omission. It made me cringe each time she weaved the web of lies that truly was unnecessary. It was minor, but I felt that the conflict could have been better.

The backstory with Jackson and his brothers was intriguing. I can tell it’s thick with history that made their relationship strong. There’s a lot of history there that I want to read more of. Overall, Her Unexpected Hero was a quick, fun and sweet read. Perfect for a lazy weekend.

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
