Review: Unexpected Expectations (425 Madison #18) by Lauren Helms

Posted on

With everyone around me settling down, I’m happy to continue living my life single and carefree.
That is unless I can convince the concierge, Lucy Wilson at 425 Madison to finally take me up on that offer to go out on a date.

She’s beautiful, friendly, and her compassion for each and every one of the residents is admirable. Something tells me that she doesn’t see herself that way at all though.

This is why I’ve made it my mission to break her out of her overly cautious shell starting with a lucky penny and a $10 raffle ticket.

It was all supposed to be a little fun but when a large dose of lucky graces us, everything suddenly becomes unexpected.

He thinks I don’t see him, but I do. Oh yes, I’ve been aware of the all too good looking Kevin Harper for quite some time now.

The thing is, I’m not sure that we have enough in common and I sure don’t have the free time for a social life between my job and school. Dating? That’s pretty far down on the list of things I’d like to check off – not by choice.

That is until Kevin convinces me that a little fun is good for the soul.

What started as a $10 raffle ticket turned into a vacation in Vegas and a whole lot of expectations that neither of us saw coming.

I always believed in fairy tales, but I wonder if what we have is too good to be true. I can only hope that it’s true what they say…

After all, 425 Madison is the perfect place to fall in love.

Love is in the air, once again at 425 Madison. All it takes is one lucky penny and a raffle ticket to turn Lucy and Kevin’s world upside down. Do dreams really come true or does the reality paint a darker picture? Those questions and oh so much more will be answered in Unexpected Expectations.

Unexpected Expectations was a fun and light romance. Unexpected Expectations was fun and refreshing. Lucy and Kevin were absolutely adorable together. They had amazing chemistry and I really liked the way that fate brought them together. Of course, their stroke of luck gave them a lot more than they bargained for and their road to happily ever after wasn’t an easy one.

Unexpected Expectations gave me a variety of feels and at times had me wanting to reach through my kindle and knock some sense into Kevin. Kevin could be completely charming when he wanted to be and he just needed the time to adjust to the changes in his life. He wasn’t perfect, but he totally won me over in the end.

Unexpected Expectations is a quick and easy read that readers will love spending the day getting lost in. Lucy and Kevin’s story has just the right amount of drama and steam to keep readers begging for more. And in the end, 425 Madison once again proves that it is the absolute best place to fall in love. I had a fabulous time getting lost in Lucy and Kevin’s story and I look forward to seeing what adventure this author has in store for us next!
