Blair is looking for an escape.

West is looking for a connection.

One down and out woman. One isolated rock star. Life at the top is lonely, but so is life at the bottom.

Blair is just looking for someone to take the edge off her crappy life. Dull the pain, breathe a little life into her neglected body. A chance meeting at a bar leads to a night of passion. No names, no personal details. Just sex.
Well, it wasn’t personal until she sees the guy standing on a stage ten meters in front of her. How the hell didn’t she realize that the guy who blew her mind is the guitarist out of that dirty rock’n’roll band, Affliction? And why is he chasing her down the street? And how does he know her name?

Sometimes you find the things you didn’t even know you were looking for in the most unexpected places.


In the crazy surge of biker books we’ve had recently, I had completely forgotten about sexy rock star book boyfriends until I read UNEXPECTED by Amity Cross and met West, the front man of rock ‘n’ roll band Affliction.

When Blair walked into a dark and dreary bar one night looking for a quick and easy one night stand, she thought she had found just that in the sexy stranger next to her. After a night of intense passion with her mystery man, Blair walked away, never to see him again. Or so she thought . . .

This was a really quick read for me. Closer to a novella than a novel, but it was a great introduction to the characters that this series will follow. Told in the POV of both Blair and West, we get both sides of the story, so although it was only short, it was easy to get to know the characters and learn more about what was happening with them.

I loved how the characters came to meet again, and though UNEXPECTED is set in just over a week, I really did feel a connection between them. Both characters have flaws that could cause problems for them throughout the series but that does nothing to decrease the sexual chemistry that surrounds them. Holy hot reads!!

UNEXPECTED is the start of a promising new rock star from Amity Cross. It was sexy, with a splash of trouble, and an ending that left me content, and excited for book #2 UNEXPLAINABLE which will be out in April.

Amity Cross isn’t my real name. That’s no secret.

I didn’t want my Mum and my workplace to find out I wrote about doodles and tongue-in-cheek sexual innuendo.

I live in a leafy suburb of Melbourne writing about screwed up relationships and kick ass female leads that don’t take s**t lying down.

Insert more pretentious c**p here.
