Unexpected by Aleatha Romig Blog Tour


*Paul*

What will happen... when Jenn learns the truth that has been brewing deep inside me?
...when she learns my desires have been restrained?
...when containing them is no longer possible?
Will she flee when there’s no place to run?


Traveling to the isolation of a tropical island, we agree to lay our marriage and our future on the line. It’s the only way to face the demons—my demons—that threaten our life together.
For us to make our marriage work, we must break down barriers, reveal the hidden places, and shine light where darkness has taken root.
This reprieve from life is meant to be about us, our marriage, and our future.
It is... until the unexpected happens...

Will our marriage survive? Will we?

This suspenseful, steamy stand-alone novella follows Paul and Jenn Masters, characters previously introduced in the novella Unconventional. This quick, spicy story may be read completely on its own or even before Unconventional.

I close my eyes and allow my body to simply react.

It’s been too long.

It seems as if recently I’ve overthought everything—every action... word... everything—between Paul and me. The process is exhausting, and I’m too tired to continue. I don’t know what will happen over the next ten days. All I know is that I want what’s in front of me.

Forget that.

I want what’s intoxicating me—my husband’s embrace, the spicy scent of his skin, the way his erection probes my tummy through our clothes, and the sweet sensation of his kiss.

Sex may not save our marriage, but damn, right now as our kiss deepens, I’m on fire. Like a field of grass that’s withstood a drought, the flames grow. Small explosions detonate throughout my body—tiny flares roaring to a blaze and blasting our world. Each is a reminder that there’s been only one man who has ever made me feel completely and utterly loved, worshipped, and satisfied.

The one man who is with me now.

A moan escapes my lips as Paul reaches for the hem of my sundress and lifts it over my head. Just as quickly, he tugs off his own shirt, and I’m surrounded by his strong arms. His wide chest smashes against my breasts, and our hearts work together, the presence of the other increasing their rhythm. The faint taste of the salt air lingers on my lips as I kiss his neck, chest, and torso.

Triggers: Scenes with some BDSM elements

Paul and Jenn are at a crossroads. The question is whether or not they can save their marriage. What Paul and Jenn don't know is that they both have been dishonest in their relationship. It's time to lay their cards on the table and figure out whether or not they can save themselves and their relationship.

This is a quick read. I did not read the previous book in this series but was never lost nor didn't know what was happening.

These two have to come together, change their communication and show each other that no matter what, they love each other. I really enjoyed this quick, steamy read.

What do you do when your marriage is over and all that is left is to sign the divorce papers? You take your therapist’s advice and go away for a vacation where the two of you can talk about the problems in your marriage.

Paul and Jenn Masters have secrets they are keeping from each other but they thought it wasn't causing problems in their marriage. But when Paul told Jenn his desires, she knew that her past would have to be revealed. While on the tropical island and no one else is around, she will learn Paul's secret and find that she is really alright with his desires too. And it seems their marriage is going to be saved until the unexpected happens.

Can Paul and Jenn's marriage survive what happened on the island? Will they give up and sign the divorce papers after all? Can Paul forgive her for the secret she keeps about her past?

I didn't read Unconventional, but I am going to go back soon and read it and see what I missed on this couple. As usual, Aleatha Romig has written a story that has you right there, believing and feeling this couples’ pain and happiness. She knows how to tell a story to keep you entertained until the very end. I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.

This is a pretty full on story for quite a short book – and has some quite disturbing elements, which might upset some, so do take note of the triggers.

Jenn and Paul are just about to sign their divorce papers when they realise that it is a final step, and just maybe that is a mistake. So they jet off to a private island to recapture the best parts of their past. This becomes a very sweet, but also by turns very erotic holiday, with Paul finally admitting to his needs, and Jenn having to revisit her previous failed relationship which centred around BDSM, but not in a good way. It was fun and hopeful. Cue a big storm and some pretty awful events which throw their lives into turmoil.

This is a sexy read, which starts from the beginning of a new relationship, based on the friendship of a married couple who lost their way. It is a very enjoyable read.
