    "Can't help who you fall in love with...."

    My Unexpected Forever is the second book in the Beaumont series. I recommend you complete the first book in the series before starting this one. This sequel was a beautiful, emotional story about love and healing. It was never rushed and focused just as much on family bonding as it did on romance. It was both sexy and heartwarming. Seriously, there's just something about a bad boy rocker who is also a loving, caring dad that is absolutely heart melting!!  The story here follows Harrison, the drummer in Liam's band who since moving to Beaumont has found himself drawn to Katelyn. He's been a single dad ever since he was surprised with a three day old son on his door step and ever since that day he's devoted himself to be the best dad he could be for Quinn. He wasn't looking for anyone, but sometimes love is unexpected like that. But Katelyn is still mourning the sudden death of her beloved husband, Mason, who she had been with since she was 15. His loss left a giant hole in their lives and she's not yet ready to offer her heart to anyone else. Not to mention that with his tattoos and rock star life, Harrison is the polar opposite of Mason and just not her 'type'. But Harrison understood that and was willing to wait for her. He knew she needed time and didn't want to rush her in to anything despite desperately wanting more. But the more she tries to ignore her feelings & convince herself that he’s just a playboy musician like so many others, the more she knows him, the more she realizes that is not true and her feelings grow even more.  So, when the band goes on tour, their families all join in. Liam, Josie and Noah go, as well as Harrison and Quinn, and, as their new manager, Katelyn is also on board along with her two girls. Over the tour, bonds solidify and are built up and it becomes clear that the feelings between them aren't going away so... they decide to give their unexpected love a chance and maybe bring some healing to their two broken families.This book is told in alternating POV chapters between Harrison and Katelyn and for the most part takes place in present day but in many of the chapters were flashback scenes from both their lives. We saw Katelyn's memories of Mason and how dear he was to her and we saw how Harrison ended up with Quinn and how that changed his life. Not only are these books about love, they focus on family. Overall, My Unexpected Forever is fantastic and unique rock star romance. Great, complex plot and phenomenal characters.
    This is a beautiful story of love after loss, the creation of family, one heartbroken woman and one very determined, very perfect man. The ending was absolutely gorgeous!!!!! It was a 5++ star ending to me.

    "Just Okay!"

    I enjoyed the male narrator immensely but the voice of the female drove me crazy!
    She was probably a good reflection of the female in the story; but if the female lead was really so pitiful one wonders how the guy fell in love with her in the first place.!

    If you would prefer a stronger female in a story then read the book and avoid the voice of the female narrator !

    Unfortunately overall the book was less than I expected !
