Unexpected by Aleatha Romig
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A couple on the verge of divorce, I see this everyday…
It makes me forget what marriage is about.
Giving one more try, like me to this moment, it’s when the couple still believes in something.
Last chance to be honest, connected and communicating – no secrets.
Will they survive this storm?
Unexpected quick read, by Aleatha, is something we can’t ignore.

I close my eyes and allow my body to simply react.
It’s been too long.
It seems as if recently I’ve overthought everything—every action…word…everything—between Paul and me. The process is exhausting, and I’m too tired to continue. I don’t know what will happen over the next ten days. All I know is that I want what’s in front of me.
I want what’s intoxicating me—my husband’s embrace, the spicy scent of his skin, the way his erection probes my tummy through our clothes, and the sweet sensation of his kiss.
Sex may not save our marriage, but damn, right now as our kiss deepens, I’m on fire. Like a field of grass that’s withstood a drought, the flames grow. Small explosions detonate throughout my body—tiny flares roaring to a blaze and blasting our world. Each is a reminder that there’s been only one man who has ever made me feel completely and utterly loved, worshipped, and satisfied.
The one man who is with me now.
A moan escapes my lips as Paul reaches for the hem of my sundress and lifts it over my head. Just as quickly, he tugs off his own shirt, and I’m surrounded by his strong arms. His wide chest smashes against my breasts, and our hearts work together, the presence of the other increasing their rhythm. The faint taste of the salt air lingers on my lips as I kiss his neck, chest, and torso.
