My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Unexpected Partners is a romance, it is set in New York around the life of Hayley McAllister and Hayven Enterprises. Hayley and her father run a very successful property development company. Since her Mum left when she was a child it’s just been Hayley and her Dad and together they are entirely focused on the success of the business.
Known as The Ice Queen, Hayley has little social life, a few dates with casual boyfriend Jake Wilkinson but little else, it’s all work, work, work. When Hayley’s Dad announces his wish to hand over the reins so that he can take time off, Hayley is shocked and fights his decision, especially when she finds about his choice of MD.
Shay Maraschino once worked with Hayley on a project and they didn’t get on. They are both hard working and determined, but there is a spark of attraction which Hayley tries hard to deny. This book has great potential with a popular theme and a storyline suited to the genre. I would have liked to see a lot more depth, detail and polish to the drama which would help the reader connect to the characters.
