Love Unexpected is the first story that I have read by Marina Hanna, and I am very impressed. Even though Love Unexpected is only 172 pages Miss Hanna leaves nothing out. Her contemporary romance hot, steamy, and definitely romantic. Her word play and descriptions will have any lover of romance stories flipping furiously through the pages to find out what happens next between Jules and Adam. So if you are either and avid reader or a lover of romance novels then I highly recommend Love Unexpected by Marina Hanna.

This is an enjoyable steamy contemporary romance with a fast paced storyline and great characters. Whilst out celebrating her new job at ‘Foster’s Advertising and Marketing’ Jules shares a drunken, heated kiss with a stranger only to discover on Monday morning that the guy is in fact her new boss, Adam Foster. Adam is shocked to find that the women he shared a passionate kiss with is his new intern but despite the no relationship clause in place at Foster’s he can’t get that kiss out of his head. Adam makes it clear to Jules that he is not interested in a relationship and that all he is offering is sex. Jules agrees and is happy with the uncomplicated sex, which happens to be great sex, with Adam but she soon realises her heart is at risk. However, will Adam admit that what he and Jules share is more than just physical. I loved both Jules and Adam as they are both likeable and relatable characters, who obviously have amazing chemistry which sizzled off the page and led to some very steamy scenes between the couple. The storyline kept me hooked from start to finish and I felt both immersed in the story and engaged with the characters.

This book from the beginning is hot and steamy….two strangers with a melting kiss in a bar after eyes meeting across the room. Two strangers whose paths will never cross again, right? Oh my goodness, the heat between these two is what fantasies are made of.
A 40 year old man, Adam, who has never been in love before, uses women for sex, and never anticipates having a relationship. Will he let his past dictate who his present self is?
Jules is a single woman looking to move her career along at a new agency. Can they overcome the obstacles that seem to be in the way? The characters are well rounded. I loved living in their world, if even for just a short time.

Wow. I’m not sure what I expected when I picked up this book but this book completely transfixed me from the beginning. Moving and emotional and romantic. Plenty of tension and struggle. The author does a beautiful job conveying the emotion between these characters. Really enjoyed it and looking forward to more from this author.

This was a nice steamy romance read! You can really feel the want and desire between the characters. Jules is strong willed and a great counter part to Adam. I really like reading from both perspectives. This was a great quick romance read and I really enjoyed the characters! I will definitely look into more from Marina Hanna!

Love Unexpected by Marina Hanna is a brilliant contemporary romance. I found this to be quite a quick and easy book to read, I fell straight into the story and really got behind the characters. The characters were strong and relatable – I thought Jules was so fiesty! It took a little getting to know both of the characters but I liked how their story developed more as it the book went on.
The author has done a great job with the writing too. It is well paced from start to finish and effortlessly pulls you in. If you have already this is definitely a book worth reading.

Love Unexpected by Marina Hanna was a really good read! The story keeps you engrossed, and it’s full if steam and sass. This also felt like a very quick read to me as well. It seemed very well written to me, and the characters were also very fascinating. It felt a lot like reading Fifty Shades of Grey to me. If you like reading contemporary romances that have a slight twist this is the novel for you! I’m glad I read this book and I thoroughly enjoyed the ride it took me on.

Love Unexpected by Marina Hanna. This is a steamy contemporary romance that will leave you wanting more. Its the story of Julia “Jules” Connors is wanting to take the advertising world by storm but the job she is in now is a dead end. When she hears of a great job at Foster’s Advertising and Marketing she applies. She gets the job but before she starts she’s out celebrating and at a local bar she makes eyes at a very handsome stranger. Before he leaves the bar he locks her in a very heated kiss and lets her go. She is shocked to find out Monday morning when she arrives at her new job that the same guy that kissed her is her new boss. Adam Foster is just as shocked to see the new intern is the hot blonde he kissed over the weekend. He knows there is a no relationship clause in his contract but he’s willing to risk it for Jules. This is a very steamy story so be prepared for a cold shower afterwards!

Love Unexpected by Marina Hanna – Review by Charlisa Wahtomy-Alba

Julia “Jules” Connors is a young woman trying to make a name for herself in advertising and marketing, but the company she is currently with doesn’t want to make changes no matter how much they like her ideas. She heard about a job opening at Foster Advertising and Marketing so she decides to make the move to that agency. While out at the bar with her girlfriends she meets eyes with a handsome stranger. When he goes to leave he unexpectedly pulls her in for a mind blowing kiss that she can’t stop thinking about. When she walks into her new job the following Monday 10 minutes late she shares an elevator with the mysterious stranger who she comes to find out is her boss.

Adam Foster wasn’t expecting to run into the beautiful blonde, but he is pleasantly surprised when he finds that she is one of the new recruits. Although there is a no fraternization clause in the contracts he is willing to bend the rules for this woman. Normally he doesn’t have relationships that last more than a month, but there is something about Jules that makes him want to keep her forever. Is he willing to open himself up to a serious relationship or will he push her away like all the others?

This books title describes perfectly what this book entails. There is some crude language used in the book so I would not recommend it for anyone under the age of maybe 16. I would say even 18, but I’m sure most 16 -year-olds have either used this same language themselves or heard it being used by friends. There were some moments in here that the main characters kind of got on my nerves as they were either rushing to judgement or not using their words to express how they truly felt. Over all though I did enjoy the book as it was easy to read. The pace and tone of the book were well set and it drew me in.

I enjoyed this romance story. This is a newer author for me which I really enjoyed and look forward to seeing what is next in the future for her. I found the story to be well developed, fast paced and engaging. The characters are realistic and made the story pop. Jules has kissed a stranger one night who she never expected to see again. Fate has other things in store for her and this stranger. Adam, is the stranger, doesn’t do relationships until her. He knows that he is no good for her. Fate has something else in mind. This is a great story that the characters really made the story for me. I enjoyed watching their growth and chemistry throughout their story. I highly recommend reading their story to find out what fate has in store for them.
