Reviewed By~Marissa Review Copy Provided By~Paperback from Publisher Let me start by telling you that I cried through most of this book. I had the misfortune to be in a similar (if different) situation at the same time I was reading Yours, Unexpectedly and I kept feeling Marilee’s pain. That feeling you get way down in your gut that flips your stomach and sends it crashing down, as if you are experiencing the pain first-hand. I also felt her desire to want someone who wants her so badly he’d drive across the continent for her, fight for her and their relationship, and just take her in his arms and kiss all the air out of her. As a result, I identified completely with the characters and found them to be heartbreakingly genuine. The story itself was well written and, while I’ve never been on a cruise, I could sense that the ship and its activities (right down to singles on the make for a “cruise relationship”) were spot on, as were the descriptions of Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas. The story was wonderfully written from two points of view – Merilee in a first-person narrative, and Matt in a second-person description. I do wonder why the author did not have both characters speaking in first-person or using the typical “he” and “she” voice-overs. It seemed strange to keep going from one to the other. All in all, it was a very nice read. This is more of your typical romance story (big on emotions) with less sex than I think most of us have gotten used to reading. There are a couple of sex scenes, and they are fairly hot as Merilee and Matt try to spice up their vanilla lives, but this book is all about the passion of romance and love. And why we shouldn’t just settle for what we have rather than what we want.

Not my regular genre, this book was just ok for me. I have not read the prior three novels in the series and therefore I may have been behind before I started, but this is a romance story that is interesting but somewhat consumed with the "sappy" and to me it was one of the reasons I don't read romance, too much sex that doesn't apply to the story and to much predictable fantasy that mirrors nothing close to real life. However, that being said, there is a plot, there is a storyline and I believe if read in order there is probably some interest that would consume the reader to know what happens next. If I was a romance reader I would start over from book one and give it a whirl, certainly not a 1 star book, but to me nowhere close to a 5 star.

Yours, Unexpectedly By Susan Fox M&M were always together. Besides being next door neighbors growing up they liked each other. She's got 3 older sisters and parents. Matt only has his mom now and she's overbearing. Merilee has all her family around her for her wedding weekend. Problem is she sees how her other sisters and their dates are acting and she does NOT feel the spark so she calls off the wedding. They are able to either cancel or rearrange the day for one of her other sisters to go ahead with their marriage. The cruise can not be canceled so he decides he'll just get away from it all. She also can use the time to recoup and discover who she really is. They come to an agreement to both stay in the cabin just not be together. As they go on outings from the cruise ship they find themselves really finding out about the new person. She's gone and changed not only her hair but things she never would've done otherwise. He's also changed his hair and dress and they can now listen to what the other is saying. Both of them accept drinks from others, dance with others and do things out of their comfort zone, very adventurous. And they discover a new kind of sex. He had brought her to the doctors in the past cuz of her extreme pain. They found out she needed some surgery and chances are she'd never be able to conceive. Merilee is staying in touch with her sisters to gain confidence and ask their opinions about how to discover her new self and Matt. Everything that is happening can be explained by the chaos theory. I love where they have been on the cruise-to places I'll never get to visit. Great details on what they find. Everything has changed, they no longer think they want to be just teachers anymore but something they've dreamed of forever when they were very young. Now a health problem, could that mean more problems for them getting back together? I didn't realize this was a book with others associated with it. At the back of this book are excerpts of several other that go along with the series. Now I just have to go get them, the series is not going to disappoint by any means.

Mileti had me hooked from the first page! The rebuilding of life, love, and career was overpowering. I laughed and cried along with Mira. I groaned when Mira was acting foolish. I beat my head with the book, saying ¿NO! Not again!¿ When a reader has such great emotions from simply reading, you know you have an excellent author! Mira had the perfect life. She had a gorgeous and smart chef husband, a darling infant, the lucrative restaurant of her dreams, yet it shatters like a mirror hitting cement when Mira finds her husband in the throes of passion with one of their employees. Mira explodes, causing many legal battles to come about. She looses her husband, her business, her self-esteem . . . she is alone with an infant and has to rebuild her life. Regretfully, she returns to her hometown of Pittsburg where she slowly, and stubbornly, rebuilds her life, from herself up to her career. It takes a lot for Mira to do, but she succeeds! Not only does she succeed, but she does it well! Her friends and family are there for her throughout the story. She not only finds herself, but she finds love along the way ¿ and peace! Mileti has tapped into a foodies dream! The use of the five courses was an excellent way to divide the chapters in Mira¿s life! The knowledge of food, cooking, baking, cuisine, etc. that Mileti has included leaves no doubt that she has done the research, and done it well! I have fallen in love with Mileti¿s writing and truly look forward to another piece! Yours, Unexpectedly Yours, Unexpectedly is the forth novel in The Wild Ride series by Susan Fox. It is an emotionally packed novel that makes you fall in love all over again. I had myself wondering about my own marriage while reading this novel. Although I have not read the other three novels in this series, one does not need the storylines from those novels to follow Matt and Miri and their roller coaster ride during what was to be their honeymoon cruise. Miri has always loved Matt, from the first time she met him at a tender age of 7. They are soul mates, each completes the other half of M & M. Yet, just hours before their wedding, Miri begins to doubt the love that Matt truly has for her. She wonders if they are ¿settled¿ in their ways already, when she witnesses her sisters and the love affairs they currently are having. She calls off their wedding. . . crushing both hearts at once. . . However, they both, unbeknownst to each other, decide to take the cruise that was to be their honeymoon. . . and unexpectedly fall in love all over again, yet in a different manner. They are more open, more willing to try new things, and willing to give and take with each other. I loved watching this love story unfold. I loved being able to see the two realize what was missing in their relationship and how they fixed it. It wasn¿t an easy cruise, but in the end, they worked out their differences and fell back in love, more powerful than before! Fox has done an magnificent job portraying this story! When I can feel a powerful emotion for the characters, wanting to be there and hold their hand, I know I have an awesome author on my hands! Fox has done just this!
