Romance novelist, Clarice Adler, has lost the inspiration to write ever since dumping her cheating boyfriend. How do you dream up a plot of two people falling in love, when you’ve stopped believing in love yourself? But her deadline is looming, and her career hangs in the balance, so she decides to lock herself away on the secluded Scottish Isle of Skye to finish her manuscript. Upon meeting Derek McMillan there, it seems she’s found her new muse and the words start to flow out of her as if by magic. Clarice falls for him, hard, despite knowing nothing about the man, except that he’s unavailable.
Derek McMillan has been managing his farm and renting out a few holiday cottages on his own for years now. He deals with the occasional tourist for some extra money, but mostly keeps to himself. When he first lays eyes on the curvy beauty, Clarice, he immediately regrets accepting her booking. Lightning strikes, and as much as he tries to deny it, his inner bear knows that she’s his mate. But he’s a shifter, and she’s a human, and the two can’t ever mix, can they? In this steamy paranormal romance novella, follow along as an impossible love blossoms between two people, who couldn’t be more different. One might say fate intended for them to meet, if you believe in that sort of thing, but they’re both set on fighting their attraction with everything they’ve got. They’re going to need another push to admit to themselves as well as each other what’s going on…
Prior to this review I had never reviewed an audio book let alone listen to one before, even though I have an audible account I just haven’t ever used it. I will admit it took me a little while to get into the book, and I think it is because I read fast, I always have so having it being read to me took a while to get used to. It wasn’t the book because I love shifter books it was doing something new and getting used to it. Okay enough about that on to the book itself.
I really enjoyed Unexpected Affair. It is the first book in the Scottish Werebear series and I want to read or hell, even listen to the next book. It was cute, sweet, funny and a nice way to spend an afternoon relaxing and listening. Derek was moody, sweetly innocent in some ways and he is a sexy werebear. I just instantly loved his character. Clarice needs to not only finish her book before her publisher has her head, but she needs to get over the fact that her ex cheated on her. I liked Clarice’s character overall but I didn’t really connect with her, not really sure why but just couldn’t which is okay cause I still enjoyed the book. Like I previously stated I am looking forward to continuing on with this series and I think shifter romance fans will enjoy this one.
