I used to think that love was for the weak.
It was not something that would ever tie me down.

Until I learned the truth behind my resistance.

When I let down my guard, I wasn’t expecting to find love.
Samantha’s voice called for my attention before I ever met her.
Now my heart is in need. My heart wants her.
And I will do whatever it takes to make it happen.


All I ever wanted was to be loved.
Until love crushed my heart into a million pieces.

I built a wall tough enough that no one could ever get that close again.

But Bradley isn’t just anyone. I’m not prepared for all that he is.
He’s searching for something that I don’t think I can give.
The more I try to deny him the harder it becomes.
He’s going to tear my wall down. And I’m torn because…
I wasn’t looking for love.
Love found me.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 3 Stars

This was a cute young adult story. I enjoyed it, but I didn’t love it. The book is split into two parts, with the first being the backstory of Brad and Samantha. The second part is when they meet by chance as juniors in college, both having suffered teenage heartbreak and being closed off to love.

I felt that the story was rushed when they finally do get together, and I was left wanting more of them as a couple. After all of the backstory I read, I felt a bit gipped by what I read of their actual relationship. Overall, An Unexpected Kind left me just wanting more.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
