Unexpected by Amy Marie Blog Tour


At twenty-seven Erin Decker has the perfect life; a thriving career, a dream home
she shares with her best friend Noelle, and a secure relationship with Robert,
her handsome and faithful boyfriend. Or so she thinks.

When her visions of a marriage proposal are met with the ultimate betrayal, Erin finds
herself in the arms of sexy and strong-willed distraction, Walker Prescott.

Her summer becomes life changing as she realizes Walker has left her with a tiny piece of
himself and no way to find him…until he suddenly shows up and turns her world
upside down.

Can she let go of her past to make way for a future she never saw coming?

Can Walker be exactly what Erin needs?

Will he give her the perfect life she so desperately craves in the most unexpected way?




My body isn’t used to this much alcohol. The few glasses of wine I
normally drink don’t have me in the middle of a dance “orgy” without
remembering how I got there. Sweat is dripping down my neck and tickling the
space between my breasts. After the third round of drinks, bought by three
different men just wanting to get in my pants, I feel relaxed yet out of
control. Noelle is nowhere to be found and in my drunken state I’m not even the
least bit concerned about it. The music has taken over my body and I can feel
myself letting go of all the stress and anxiety that Robert has caused me. I
don’t care who is watching because at this moment I feel like the sexiest
person in here.

With my eyes closed I rub my hands along my hips all the way to my hair,
pulling it off my neck into a makeshift ponytail. The beat of the music moves
through me like an electric wave. When a cool puff of air passes over the back
of my neck it feels like water in the Sahara. Larger hands than I’ve ever felt
before unexpectedly come around my waist and pull me back into a rock hard
chest. My breathing becomes more ragged as the mystery man whispers in my ear.

“Are you hot, baby?” He asks, his hot breath sending shivers down my

My senses are on high alert and despite the fact that I haven’t a clue
what he looks like, those four words turn me on instantly. If his voice can do
that to me I’d love to see what his enormous hands are capable of. Our bodies
connect and sway to the music as his mouth continues to hover just above my
shoulder causing tingles to radiate through my body. I can feel his lips
grazing the crease of my neck and when he nips my skin my knees go weak. My
head falls back involuntarily giving him more access to continue his sensual
assault. He smells delicious, and the soft suctioning kisses he places up my
neck cause me to moan in anticipation. I have to see the man who is releasing
all my inhibitions.

Reluctantly I turn my heated body around feeling the loss of his soft
lips, but what I’m rewarded with is a vision of godliness. Standing at what
appears to be well over six feet tall is the most panty-dropping specimen that
I have ever laid my eyes upon. I should have turned around sooner! His plain
black t-shirt hugs every single slender muscle in his sexy ass arms. The faded
blue jeans he wears are snug, even more so where his zipper lies, showing me
how much he is turned on. His dark brown hair is a styled mess; short on the
sides but longer up top. I can’t help but wonder what it would feel like to grab
hold of it and tug. Hard. A grin flashes across his face, as if he’s read my
mind, and I see a hint of just one dimple on the right side of his mouth. His
green eyes appear hungry as they shamelessly take me in from my toes to my own
starving eyes. I swallow hard and try to catch my breath.

“I thought you looked good from behind but damn if you don’t look
heavenly from this angle,” he says loudly, over the music.

He grabs both of my hands, circling them around his neck. With our
height difference my forehead falls into his chest perfectly, as if we are two
pieces of a puzzle. I try to control my breathing; the alcohol is coursing
through my veins now. Freeing my hands from their hold, they find their way
down and softly graze over his pecs and then the ripple of his abs. They falter
as they come in contact with not a six pack but, a …1,2,3,… eight pack! I see
his chest rising and falling rapidly. I think he must be as turned on by me as
I am by him. Impossible.

My Review:

First and for most, the cover is two hands. I thought it was something else, but finally figured it out once I read this absolutely wonderful book. When I first signed up, there was mistake with the sign up sheet and it had the wrong synopsis. I was still signed up, but had doubts about this book. That is until I read it. 

I knew the moment I started to read this book that Robert was having an affair. I sympathized her right away. What Robert did crushed Erin and she finally realized what a cheating low-life douche bag he is. The way he treated her in the past lead up to the moment where Erin is finally free. With her best friend in tow, they go to a club where Erin meets Walker. A sexy man whose has a panty melting smile. After their one-night stand, Noelle and Erin go on vacation when Erin has a problem. Not knowing if she will ever see Walker again, she resumes her job of a sixth grade math teacher when she gets another surprise. Guess who is student teaching?? WALKER!! 

Through out this book, it is Erin and Walker's journey and dealing with a surprise and how it impacts both their lives. I love Erin, but I love Walker more. He is a sweet and gentle guy, when they are not going at it, caring for her when she was scared and hurt. His smile could make a girl's brain go from smart to mush in 5 seconds flat. Noelle reminds me of Jen for Quinn Loftis' Grey Wolves series. Both will hurt anybody who comes between her love ones and both talk about sex openly! 

Erin really grows up in this book. She knew what she wanted in life, but didn't find it in Robert till after he cheated. She found it in Walker when he didn't, no pun intended, walk away. It is an compelling story about how surprises can lead you to the one your meant to be with. Of course there are ups and downs, every relationship has them, but this down was a twist in Erin's head. The woman Robert cheated with is a family member of Walker. I won't tell how they are related, but its pretty close!! This is an Adult Romance book, but it is one of the best I have ever read. I can't wait for more swoon-worthly men come around! *mischievous grin*
