Love Unexpected by Marina Hanna

I had absolutely no expectations going itm. The synopsis caught my eye, but since Ms. Hanna is a new to me author I was clueless on what to expect.

Well, I wish I had found her sooner.  I throughly enjoyed this book and I love Jules.  She was spunky and didn’t put up with any crap from Adam.  I always love reading about an Alpha man falling head over heels.

There was a little bit of everything in this book.  Romance, extremely hot moments,  humor and of course angst.

I will be stalking this author to keep up with what she releases next.

This is the first book I’ve read by this author but, will not be the last. The author won me over with this read.
I loved it, loved the characters and the way the book just flowed. I did want to punch Adam a time or two but hey, it’s not a great read without that.
Jules is such a sweet fun loving character but she is one feisty thing and she doesn’t take anyone’s garbage. She gives it as good as she gets it. When she spots a tall dark and handsome guy at her local bar she never expected what would happen next or what would happen on her first day at her new job. This was a great read!!! I cannot wait to read more by this author…..soon!!

Love Unexpected by Marina Hanna was an unexpected adult office romance read that I was hooked on after the first chapter.

Adam Foster is your typical alpha playboy, knows what he wants, and in no way does he want a “relationship”. But after a kiss with a stranger and finding out that said stranger is his new employee, he’s thinking of changing his ways. Jules is a confident woman ready to start her new job but she wasn’t ready to find out that Mr. Hot-as-F is her new boss. Can Jules fight her feeling for Adam or does she give in to her boss?

Fair warning – Adam Foster is a curded dirty talking male who will set fire to the pages and have you needing a cold shower. Looking forward to more books by this author, highly recommend checking out this author.

Love Unexpected is a fun, contemporary romance from Marina Hanna. It was my first time reading this author’s work so was unsure what to expect but the blurb attracted me so I decided to give it a go. I’, really glad that I did as I really enjoyed this book and can add a new author to my list.
When a very handsome stranger kisses her in a bar, Jules can’t get him out of her mind but knows she’s unlikely to ever see him again. That is until she starts her new job on the Monday morning and finds that the very handsome Adam is her new boss. Only the company has a no fraternization policy. Is boss Adam going to break his own policy as he can’t get the gorgeous Jules out of his head?
I really enjoyed this story. The Monday morning meeting is awkward and funny. The writer has a way of pulling you into the story from the very start and keeps the momentum going.
It’s not a very long book and I devoured it in one sitting of a few hours. It’s a very entertaining read with I thoroughly enjoyed and would definitely recommend that others read. Go on, take a risk on an author you’ve not read before.

Julia Connor, “Jules”, is a lady that knows her own mind. She was raised as an only child, and she knows that if she wants something in life she has to be the one to go after it. After five years with Miller Advertising, she decides that their old-fashioned advertising and marketing plans are not for her. Then she lands a job with Foster Advertising and Marketing. The company’s open mind and creative structure are just what she’s looking for to continue to build on her career.

Adam Foster, CEO of Foster Advertising and Marketing, is America’s most eligible bachelor. He is from an upper-class family in New York and has worked tirelessly building Foster’s Advertising and Marketing which now has offices in England and France. He prides himself that he is a one-woman at a time, no-commitment kind of guy.

Jules and Adam meet before her first day on the job while she is spending quality time with friends. She’s ferocious when it comes to relationships. She won’t back down. So when she sees a hot, steamy American guy she is drawn to him. As this man leaves, he stops at her table and pulls her into a knee-buckling kiss. Little do they know that this is only their first encounter.

Love Unexpected is a perfect title for this steamy romance novel. Every woman is attracted to those hot, sexy man types. Jules finds Adam irresistible, and she respects him for where hard work has put him. Adam finds Jules memorizing and intelligent. Can Jules hold on to her heart? Will Adam keep his walls up? Or will the stars align and shine bright over them?

Love Unexpected by Marina Hanna is a captivating contemporary romance. that completely captivated me right from the very first page. I cannot wait to read other books by Marina. It is a quick read, but it has everything that makes it a wonderful story. The chemistry is smoking, and I love the sass and a little bit of angst.

An unexpected kiss with a stranger was the highlight of her night. What she did not expect was that he is her new boss. The sparks fly and the fun begins.

Love Unexpected by Marina Hanna is a wonderful contemporary romance that completely captivated me right from the very first page. This is a little office romance about finding love unexpectedly- with a little sprinkling of drama and angst to add some tension and keep things interesting.
Jules is out with friends enjoying a few drinks when she notices a devastatingly handsome man across the room, eyes locked, with magnetic chemistry swirling between them. The charged evening ends when the stranger unexpectedly bestows her with the best kiss of her life. She can’t stop thinking about him and the electrifying kiss they shared. Never expecting to see him again, imagine her shock when she turns up to her new job a few days later to discover that he’s her new boss. Things are about to get interesting. Will they be able to resist their attraction and keep things professional? Or will they succumb to desire? Add a little angst and drama- and get set for an awesome ride!
This is my first book by Marina Hanna, and after reading this I am happy to say that it definitely won’t be the last. I am really looking forward to exploring more of her work asap!
I am happy to recommend this book- it is well worth the read!

Thank you, Marina Hanna!

This story is HOT HOT HOT! Adam is one cocky, arrogant alpha male, but I could not love his character. There is more to why he is the way he is and he made my heart swoon! Jules, wow, she is a strong, independent woman who is not afraid to speak her mind. I love characters like this. When they get together, its the chemistry that is so hot. I recommend this book highly. Definitely lots of hot romance and some part where it made me laugh. Great Read!! 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

I have never read anything previously from Marina Hanna but boy will I be back for more! This read was quite the fun one and it had just the right amount of steam to balance it all out. I really enjoyed the wit and sass that flowed off the kindle as I read and had me reading so fast I barely felt as if I had been reading for any time at all when that ending hit. I was a bit bummed but I didn’t feel slighted with the storyline. I wouldn’t mind more in the future of these two. They just popped so well and worked out so perfectly I couldn’t say enough good things. I really wanted to read more. That is saying a lot because the basis of an office romance is not a new trope and often one I skip lately since it tends to be overplayed for me. I am glad I gave this one a read though! Can’t wait to see what will come next.

Love Unexpected by Marina Hanna is a fast-paced office romance. When a chance encounter at a bar between Jules and Adam sends sparks flying, it is a shock to Jules when she finds out that he is none other than her new boss. Unable to keep business and pleasure separate Jules starts to fall for Adam but the older business mogul has his walls up high and it is uncertain whether he will let her in. I liked this book but really didn’t like Adam to start with, he was too pushy and unable to see how great he had it with Jules but her tenacious nature was really refreshing, she wasn’t one of those heroines who let herself be fooled by the powerful man, she stood her ground and I really liked that. This is a very steamy novel but has a good story and some interesting characters, who I am sure will have fun stories of their own.
