BOOK TOUR: Unexpected - Dulaney-Glen + REVIEW & GIVEAWAY!!!

Released: May 17th, 2013

Ian wasn't ready to meet Grace Holtsen. In no way was he prepared for her. But can you ever be ready for fate to step in? Can you ever be ready to meet the one person who will change your entire existence? Ian knew that Grace would change everything he was used to, but something about her made it worth it. For the first time somebody seemed worth the risk. Will Ian jump and let fate wait for him at the bottom? Hoping that it can somehow save him...hoping that Grace can somehow save him.

I don't think Grace is like most girls.
Maybe that's the thing that I can't put my finger on.
Maybe for the first time, I've met a girl that's unlike
anyone that I've ever known.

Grace, a single mother and owner of a Nashville recording company, met Ian Paul, a recent college grad and her new employee. The moment he entered her world, it turned upside down. She knew better than anyone that a relationship with Ian would never work. He was never supposed to fit into her life, and she was never supposed to show up in his. But what happened between them was something more than either of them ever anticipated. Grace was unprepared for how bad it would hurt when they were faced with something far more unexpected.

He stole the rest of my heart tonight. I
know that no matter what happens tomorrow, or days from
now, I’ll never want it back.

I could never give it to someone else.

"Sometimes all we need is to have faith in the unexpected."
Unexpected started out extremely slowly but then it progressed fast to make up time and it just blew me away in the end. I was captivated in the second half and kudos to you Dulaney-Glen! The book was so beautifully written and the plot twist in the end was brilliant!

I was bummed at first about this book because I thought it was going to be really boring and shit but then DAMN! I was definitely impressed. I loved it. I loved the characters. I loved the pace of the book. I loved the freaking development! Seriously, the plot twist? I really, honestly did not expect that to show up.

You could barely tell the age difference between the two but when Ian gets excited about something, you can see how much younger he is and I liked how the author emphasized that.

When they went to Graceland (which is totally adorable since it was her name), it was his first time and he was super pumped about it.
We stop at the brick wall outside the gates of the house and i reach into my purse and pull out a black permanent marker. I hand it to Ian and his face lights up as he realizes that he's going to get to sign the wall at Graceland like thousands of others have done.
God, Ian is the cutest little fucker.

I also adored Grace's character because she was this awesome, strong independent woman who's raised Milo so well and she did it alone. 

So I was really happy when she finally got her "happily ever after" that she never really expected. She really deserves it after all the hard work she's done.

"I would stand here holding you for as long as you would let me." – Ian
Le sigh. I want an Ian.

But the freaking plot twist? I could hear my heart breaking into tiny little pieces.

AND FINALLY TO END THIS REVIEW, I SHALL GIVE YOU A QUOTE FROM NANNY NINA (whom I totally love because she's fucking awesome) ;)
"Yeah. Rode the pony. I know it's been a while for you. You're so picky with your ponies. You only ride the best thoroughbred ponies… no petting zoo ponies for you."
