Unintentional is the second book in the Intentional series by M.K Harkins. I absolutely loved Intentional (Book #1) and was both happy and sad at the end of the book- happy because Mattie and Jeremy found their happiness- but sad because Cade was hurt in the process. I really loved him in that book- so I was really excited to find that he would get his own story and a chance to find happiness, once more. I did have a lot of expectation and knowing how the story had ended in book one I felt Cade deserved an epic story of his own to make up for the way things played out- also, I was very interested to find out what happened to him in the two years between the end of Intentional and the epilogue that followed. We get a tiny snippet, from Mattie’s point of view, and a bit of a glimpse at how this story may start off- but I really wanted to know what happened. I really think Ms. Harkins has done a superb job with this book- it’s excellent- every bit as good as the first, if not better! Even though it is book two and the sequel to the first story- you could read this as a standalone, as Ms. Harkins does a great job of recapping the whole thing (from Cade’s POV)- but having said that, I still recommend reading Intentional first, because it’s there that you will fall in love with the story and the characters- which will enhance this reading experience for you.
As with the first book, the characters are wonderful, beautifully developed and fully realised individuals. I love Cade even more now than in the first book, he’s so swoony- the perfect book boyfriend, and I am definitely adding him to my haram. Hey Ho!!! I wasn’t sure I was going to like Laurel, especially after Mattie- but I soon found myself changing my tune and am a big fan of hers now! And again, there is a lot going on in the story- and a lot more to the story and characters than first meets the eye. There was so much suspense, surprising and sometimes shocking and heart stopping revelations and developments. I devoured the story in one sitting, just so I could find out how the story played out!
I wonder what Ms. Harkins will do next? I can’t wait!
Thank you, Ms. Harkins!!
