I absolutely loved this wonderful, and endearing, slow burn romance! After meeting Nathaniel Chadwick and Nyx Brassard in the first book, I couldn't wait to read more about them! Nate and Nyx have lived very different lives but are alike in so many ways. They are both hard working successful people, are close with their families, and find themselves cleaning up their siblings messes. Their first meeting was as adversaries, advocating for their brother and sister from book one, but also had a mutual respect and attraction for each other. They eventually became friends and when Nyx found out she was pregnant, Nate immediately wanted to be there for her. Nyx had a unique upbringing traveling around the world. She wants a normal life and a secure home and Nate wants to help her have all her dreams. He is so sweet and swoony how he takes care of Nyx, from holding her hair when she's sick, to indulging her as she spoils his dog. But Nate has been burned before and no matter how close he and Nyx become, he isn't sure he is capable of opening his heart completely. I absolutely loved, loved, loved this slow burn romance so much! Ms Burgoa expertly weaved a rich and captivating story, allowing these wonderful characters to take their time to meet, talk, learn more about each other, share their thoughts, their feelings, their lives, and only then allowing them to find love through that effort. That is the kind of love story that feels genuine and real and one I will always believe in, and this was all that and more! I also loved each of their family dynamics, they were all fun and quirky, and completely loving and supportive. I really enjoyed catching up with characters from other books as well. This fun, emotional and steamy romance is so engaging, it captured my heart and made me completely happy!

If you are looking for a fun, entertaining, emotional read look no further that Didn’t Expect You ( Against All Odds #2), it’s a wonderful, fun story with characters you will love and a plot that will captivate you from the first page to the last line. Nate and Nyx are complete opposites and at times you wonder if this couple actually have anything in common but as the saying goes “Opposites attract “ but the witty banter they share seems to pull them together to form an unbreakable bond. This is a journey about two people who are strong and independent as individuals but together they become stronger as they embark on the bumpy road to true love. This lighthearted fun read is one of my favourite books by Ms Burgoa, it ticked all my boxes and touched me on so many levels, It’s emotional, it’s funny , I loved Nate and Nyx and I was engrossed in their romance. I can’t wait for more in this series and more from this very talented author. Great addition to the series.
Expect to fall in love with Claudia Burgoa. No matter how much it's expected your emotions never see it coming. Didn't Expect You is simply that good. Nate and Nyx are at a crossroads. Take the road less traveled and paved with heart or stay on course with the dreams they have planned. With just the right amount of heart and unpredictability, Burgoa creates a magic moment, no reader will soon forget.
