When Kida and handsome British expat, Miles, crash into each other- quite literally- one morning, neither is expecting the instant attraction that draws them to one another. He is handsome, intelligent and looks at Kida in a way no man ever has before.
 
As a shy, twenty-five-year-old single woman, living and working in New York City certainly has its challenges, but Kida’s best friend, James, has always been there to lend a helping hand.  He’s a man Kida has always had stronger feelings for, but is afraid to take the next step with. After all, what would an outgoing, ex-footballer see in her?
 
When both men start to shower her with affection, will Kida be able to choose between them, or will she lose them both forever?
 
Authors note: This is not your traditional HEA or even HFN…things with Kida and her two love interests are unconventional, but totally worth the read. It is Part 1 of 3 for Kida, Miles and James’ story.

Unexpected is the debut novel and first book in the Marked for Love Trilogy by author Keira Jayne.  I was immediately engrossed in this story, which is filled with drama, angst, and many unexpected twists.  FYI, I did not read the blurb before beginning this book, and I highly recommend you doing that too!

In this story, Kida works for a travel agency in NYC with her best friend, James.  Secretly, James and Kida are both in love with each other, but they are both scared to lose their friendship.  She then crashes into Miles one morning at a coffee shop, and their attraction is palpable.  Kida decides to take a chance with Miles since nothing is happening with James.  When James finds out Kida went out on a date, he becomes really upset.

What will happen to Kida, James, and Miles?  Will she lose her friendship with James forever?

An exciting first book and am looking forward to finding out what happens next!

“I’m Miles.” He extended his hand. A man who shook hands on the first meeting! He was endearing himself to her even more! Kida despised it when people insisted on hugging as soon as they met you.
 
“Hi,” Kida said, placing her hand in his.
 
As soon as she did, her throat went dry. Electricity arced through her. Where his fingers held her hand, her skin pulsed right along with her heart.
 
“And you are?” Miles asked as he tried not to make it obvious that he was checking out this pretty little Australian standing in front of him.
 
Kida lifted an eyebrow. “Maybe I’ll tell you if I see you here again.”
 
Miles was a little surprised by her answer, but he found it intriguing. “Maybe?”
 
Kida reluctantly released his hand. She backed away from him. “Pretty good chance.”
 
A small smile tugged at the corners of his mouth. “Tomorrow?”
 
“Sounds like a plan.”
 
Miles’ smile grew bigger and it was just as gorgeous as the rest of him. “Did we really just organise a date over spilled coffee?”
 

 

“The world works in mysterious ways. Bye, Miles.”
I grew up in country New South Wales, Australia and spent my formative years having all sorts of fun on the sheep and cattle farms my grandad and uncles helped to run, as well as spending lots of time in Tamworth, NSW, which fostered in me a love of the bush.
 
In my early twenties, I spent a year in Europe, which I consider one of the best years of my life and would live there permanently given half the chance.
 
I am a crazy dog lover, I love music, reading, history and traveling, Marvel films and epic television dramas such as Outlander and Vikings. I love the cold, I can’t stand the heat of summer and I will pick peas out of absolutely everything, because eew!
 
I live in house full of books and music in Brisbane, Australia.
