Unexpected

Ross McConnell has been crossed in love, he was devastated after he proposed to the love of his life and she turned him down, but it's been 11 years. And he made a promise to both of his parents that if anything happened to his dad, he would move home to Salt Lake from New York to care for his mother. Only he's never married, and his sisters keep lining him up with women, most of whom he would never choose to date on his own, or even ask out a second time. He meets Natalie Forrester unexpectedly, she's tap dancing in his kitchen when he has a terrible case of food poisoning. He's not sure how she got there, and kicks her out, and feels terrible when he finds out that his regular housekeeper, unable to care for his house because of illness has asked Natalie to clean for him for a while. Natalie is unsure what to think of her grumpy employer when he kicks her out of his house, she's not sure about men. She's had two failed marriages and her second husband has made her doubt everything about herself. Is it possible that Ross and Natalie can overlook their awkward meeting and be able to move past it to find friendship, if not something more?

This book was cute. It took me a little extra time to get past the first bit and really get into the story, but when I did, I found it cute and fun. Natalie and Ross are constantly finding themselves in awkward situations in regard to each other, with each situation funnier than the last. I like that you were able to see what had happened from both of their perspectives, because they both see things a little bit differently. I liked the characters in this book, they were likable. I liked the plot, and the ending was fabulous. I can't wait to read more of Karen Tuft's books!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
