★ SYNOPSIS ★
He wasn’t what she was expecting…
Derek Carmichael has harbored a secret crush on his best friend’s older sister for years, but she’s always been out of his reach. Now that Hannah is back in their hometown and newly single, suddenly the five-year age gap doesn’t seem so huge. But convincing her to see him as more than just the kid she used to know is another story.
Hannah Willmett can’t believe how grown-up Derek Carmichael has become. The troubled kid from her youth has turned into a sexy, successful TV celebrity, but Hannah’s wary of his player past and the rampant rumors connecting him to beautiful socialites. Still, she can’t help but give in when their attraction reaches a boiling point.
Trying to keep their fling a secret from her overprotective brother is one thing, but when Hannah finds herself unexpectedly expecting, her life is thrown upside down. She and Derek may be becoming parents together, but that’s no basis for a happily-ever-after.

★ MY REVIEW ★
I liked this book! I didn’t love it, by I really did like it. Unexpectedly Yours by Coleen Kwan was a truly sweet read. It not only is an older woman, younger man story, but it’s also a best friends sister story. What I enjoyed is that it is a twist on a typical theme. A wee bit about the book? It’s a full-length novel, well written, has an HEA and no cliffy.
One thing I did love about this book is the characters. The hero and heroine are fun to read. They have their ups and downs like normal people and nothing is sugar coated. Oddly enough, my favorite character in the whole book was the hero’s grandpa. He made me laugh so much, and Derek’s references to him, while long-suffering, were obvious that he cared about the old coot.
Hannah’s stance on everything is intriguing to read about. You can tell she’s hesitant and scared, but I love that in the end, she didn’t let it hold her back. The chemistry between the characters is also apparent and wonderfully plotted.
Overall, a wonderful read and one I would definitely recommend.
