Ever had one of those days? Alina Lyons is having one. Everything keeps falling apart and going wrong. Just when she thinks it couldn't get worse, it does. After a case of mistaken identity and a broken heart, she finds herself questioning the things she thought she knew. She wonders who she can turn to or trust anymore.

An unlikely bond with her former best friend's ex, Ryan Wilcox, sends her life in a new direction. He offers her a place to stay while she gets her life back on track. His friendship is exactly what she's been missing—what she's been needing. Alina's never felt this alive. As time goes by, the dynamic of their relationship becomes more than either of them expected. A few innocent kisses could lead them in a new direction, but are they prepared for what's on the other side?

Only one way to find out.

*Unexpected is a standalone new adult novel* 




About the Author:
Lilly Avalon is the author of the RESIST series as well as other erotic romances.
She's somewhere in the midst of her twenties and lives mostly in the stories in
her head. When she's not enveloped in the worlds she creates, she's out in the
real world making stories happen. That or reading other romances. It's a
toss-up.

Excerpt:





As we sit here quietly, the only sound we hear is the squeak of the swing as it rocks back and forth. I'm about to tell him we should go back inside when he asks, “Why don't you cry?”


His question shouldn’t surprise me, because it’s one thing people often wonder. I shrug. “No point in bothering. My life always spins back around where it was. A guy comes in, somehow sweeps me off my feet to the point where I have zero rational thought, he crushes me, I dust myself off, and move on to the next one.”

He stops the swing, turning to me. “Wait, you think that's normal?”

“It is for me. Circle of life.”

His forehead wrinkles. “What the hell, Alina? Don't you have any self worth?”

“Why do you think I stopped caring? Because if I did I would hurt. I'm protecting myself.”

“You're cutting yourself off, that's what you're doing.”

My head flinches back. “Huh?”

“Don't you get it?” He reaches for my hand, holding it between both of his. “You're distancing yourself from opening up to love because you have grown to expect something bad to happen.”

“That's what always happens, though!”

“Not every story ends the same. Some of them have a twist. Some things in life are unexpected. 

Some things like love.”

I close my eyes for a couple seconds, then whisper, “But what if I fall in love and he's not there to catch me?”

“You try again. And again. And again. Until he does.”

“What if he doesn't?”

“Trust me Alina, he will.”

“How do you know?”

“Because he's a fool if he doesn't.”
