Book Description

UNEXPECTED LOVE

***This is a New Adult, Contemporary novel. It is not intended for Young adult readers and contains sexual content and graphic language.****

Someone has watched her every move...

Throughout Arissa's life, she has experienced disturbing cold chills running down her spine, the kind that let a person know something is not quite right. For as long as she can remember, she has sensed she is being watched, but has been utterly unsuccessful in finding the person responsible for making her doubt her sanity. Her hope is that in moving away to college she will have a fresh start and a chance to find herself.

After years spent watching her, now he is developing strong feelings for her. That was never part of the plan, never his intention. Ideally, she would remain unaware of his presence in her life. Of course, life rarely unfolds, as it should. The best-laid plans often unravel. And the best kind of love is completely unexpected.

“Unexpected love is full of emotional torment, sizzling love scenes, and an intriguing storyline.”~ Wendi Hulsey

“Unexpected Love will have you so wrapped up in the storyline, you will not want it to ever end! Charlene Martin has an extraordinary talent and I look forward to reading her books in the future.” ~ Terry Trahan

I have a loving family my mother who has taught me about love and lasting relationships. A father who pushes me to excel and succeed at anything I desire. My younger sister and I have become very close over the years and she is very supportive of everything I do. I have been married for nine years to my best friend. I love my husband more than anything. He is so kind, loving and supportive. He likes to joke with his friends that, "My wife writes adult books." We have a eleven year old daughter who is so smart and talented. I can't believe how fast they grow up. She is turning into quite the young lady. She aspires to be so many things and I encourage them all. She loves to write songs, and has even tried her hand at writing a book. Maybe one day she will follow my example. Being that I am from a small town, I have made some long lasting relationships. I have two best friends that I have known for most of my life. We have continued to stick together over the years and we are always there for one another. I couldn't imagine my life without them. Animal lover I am not, but I have a headstrong dog that is the absolute best-behaved dog I have ever seen and a cat that drive me insane, but I love her nonetheless.

I never would have dreamed that I would become a writer, but some really great people convinced me otherwise. Eventually I decided to give it a try and what do you know? I just finished writing my second book and I couldn't be happier. I will continue to write in my spare time with hopes of it becoming a full time career at some point in my life. So take note, I am just a small town girl trying to bring light to your darkness, anything is possible if you work hard at it. So hold your head high, get out there, and do what you love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unputdownable 16 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I was lucky enough to read this before it was published, the story is heart warming and will leave you wanting more, the characters became friends and i can not wait for the next book in this amazing series. There are parts of the story that are laugh out loud funny and others that melt your heart, its very much a mixture of emotions that you feel whilst on this journey within the book... Write the next chapter quickly Charlene i need more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unexpected Love 9 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The story concentrates on Arissa's journey to adulthood whilst also giving us another's perspective in italics. Her life is pretty good, and the choices she makes seem to improve. She clearly has a good home life and plenty of money, but also has a caring, entrepreneurial spirit. Her dreams and the character who speaks in italics are where the mystery lies...

Definitely make sure you either have book two on your device, or you are in a wifi zone, because when this ends you need to move straight on ...

Unexpected Love

Synopsis

Someone has watched her every move...

Throughout Arica's life, she has experienced disturbing cold chills running down her spine, the kind that let a person know something is not quite right. For as long as she can remember, she has sensed she is being watched, but has been utterly unsuccessful in finding the person responsible for making her doubt her sanity. Her hope is that in moving away to college she will have a fresh start and a chance to find herself.

After years spent watching her, now he is developing strong feelings for her. That was never part of the plan, never his intention. Ideally, she would remain unaware of his presence in her life. Of course, life rarely unfolds, as it should. The best-laid plans often unravel. And the best kind of love is completely unexpected.

Wow

First let me start by saying I normally do not read paranormal/ erotica, with that being said I was a little apprehensive going into this book. I soon realized it was a nice change from what I'm use to reading

Arise is a young women in her senior of high school. She is very close with both her parents. Throughout her life she has always had this strange feeling that someone is watching her. No matter what she cannot shake this feeling.

She has a very over jealous boyfriend Damon. She tells him she loves him, but deep down she questions what they have especially when she thinks about their future and collage and she just doesn't see him in it. After a bad break up she is ready to move forward.

Arissa has dreams at night of a tall blonde man with the most amazing green eyes. They are very sexual dreams, but she wakes up wondering who this mysterious man she dreams about most nights is.

He has been watching over her since she was a little girl. Seeing what a lovely young woman she is turned out to be he cannot help but fall in love with her. He has to sit back and watch her with that jerk Damon when he feels like she should belong to him. He tries not to intervene in her life unless he has to.

Now in a new city waiting for her classes to start Arissa gets a lovely summer job at a local book store. She meets her neighbor Tim who happens to be hot. She starts to attend his parties and life is going well until...

WARNING CIFFHANGER

At the last party of the summer Arissa is drugged and is being sexually assaulted when in comes a man to her recuse. When she finally gets a good look at the man who saves her she suddenly realizes it the man from her dreams. That's how the story ends.

I was very pleased with the store line and the way this book was written. I would give Unexpected Love 4 out of 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique!! 20 May 2013
By pinkspo0n - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is really hard to explain, but it was extremely interesting. I really liked the idea that she could feel someone watching her from even a young age. I found the prologue adorable. I loved the imagery with Arissa and the butterflies.

This book is a very quick read, I was able to complete it in one setting. I found some aspects of the story a little unrealistic. Her life seemed to be moving too smoothly, and things were so easily given to her. Even with this, I did like the story. It is a unique story that was a fun way to spend my evening.

The only part that really threw me off was just the writing style. It didn't seem to mesh perfectly with me. I'm only one of billions of people in the world though, so I don't realy judge a book that way. Personally, when I read a book that's written in the first person, I expect to be able to immerse myself in the main character. This story seemed more like the first person telling the story than someone living the story. It put me off at first, but I quickly became accustomed to it, and enjoyed it.

The ending (no worries, no spoilers!) really seemed to be the final hook for me. I'm really looking forward to the next instalment. The ending left me wanting so much more!

It's a fun read! Be sure to check it out.

Note: I recieved this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been better 16 Sept. 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
the story line is a good one, but the "therefore" all the time, the grammatical errors and the discrepancies left me wishing I never started the book. the ending left way too much hanging, it was like one book was just edited to make it more

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome!!!! 19 May 2013
By di - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Fellow book readers, this book is a page turner from start to finish.

I really like that it is about young love.

Arissa is finishing school, moving away to college, trying to make new friends and have a chance for a fresh start. Arissa has always had a feeling of being watched from a very young age. This giving "Unepected Love an intriguing storyline".

This book gives a feeling that someone is always lurking in the back ground. You just want to keep reading to find out what and who is watching..

It's nice to read a book that is not all about sex scenes on every page. Don't get me wrong, I love a book with hot sex scenes!. I have a feeling in the following books there will be some sizzling sex scenes.

Ms. Martin did a great job. Unexpected Love is one of my favorite books. Can't wait for next book to come out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing debut novel! 16 May 2013
By TomTer7 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This story will leave you breathless. Who knew that an "unknown" hero would make you root for him more and more? When Arissa meets Damon, she thinks her life couldn't be any better. Little did she know that life is not fair and it always throws curveballs. Life has its own set of rules, that tend to change as the seasons change. You never know what is around the corner, unseen road blocks, unwanted hurdles, and even Unexpected Love.
