    UNEXPECTED COMPLICATION by Amy Knupp ~ They have known each other for over 15 years. They both secretly long for a more intimate relationship with one another, but have been too scared to address their intensifying feelings. As is usually the case in male-female relationships, the woman 'Carey' tends to adjust to and embrace her feelings more freely and quicker than Devin. He clings to the fact that, Jerod, a man he despises has impregnated Carey. Devin is unable to express genuine love for her baby and he recognizes that it would be a disservice to all parties involved. I found myself, at times throughout the novel, congratulating him for trying to keep his distance when he felt it would be impossible for him to get past the paternity of the child. He knew that Carey and her child were a package deal. I feel that Devin had the tendency to cling to the paternity of the baby, a bit longer than was necessary, because he feared opening himself up to love. He was unnecessarily cruel to Carey at one point in the novel, which made me want to hit him and/or call him an anal-orifice. Overall, the story has its moments of hilarity and is engaging, but slightly verbose.

    An interesting character study with a strong romantic subplot

    International freelance photographer Carey Langford is back home in Iowa pregnant with no boyfriend having ended her relationship with Jerod last month. She debates with herself who she should tell, but rules out everyone except her long time best friend Devin Colyer, Jerod¿s cousin.------ However, she even hesitates turning to Devin because she knows he hates Jerod. Still she needs to confide in someone so she tells Devin. After the initial shock passes, Devin, who has loved Carey since high school and would do almost anything for her, has problems with the fact that she is carrying Jerod¿s child. Still this is his beloved and he must decide whether to tell her how he feels, which also means loving someone else¿s offspring or losing his last opportunity with Carey.----- The relationship between Carey and Devin make this an interesting character study with a strong romantic subplot. Devin has always wanted Carey, but she has always seen him as a close friend. Now he has an opportunity to be more, but has doubts about raising someone else¿s child, especially the offspring of a person he loathes. Fans will enjoy watching his actions and reactions towards the woman he loves and the innocent unborn she carries. Amy Knupp provides a fascinating relationship drama.------ Harriet Klausner
