Excerpt from Unexpectedly You by Rebecca Shea

There’s a loud knock on the conference room door that startles both Jamie and me. She jumps up and opens the door, just as Eddie pops his head inside.

“Sorry to interrupt, ladies,” he starts. “We have the conference room reserved for a client meeting in five minutes.”

I glance at my watch and see that it’s almost nine o’clock. Jamie and I have been in here for almost an hour.

“Shit,” I mumble, grabbing my empty coffee cup. “I have to get to work.”

“Me too,” says Jamie, following me from the conference room back toward our desks.

I stop abruptly, causing Jamie to run into my backside when I see Drew standing in my cube, staring out my window over a cloudy, rainy Manhattan. His hands are shoved into his pockets and his dress shirt is rolled up to his forearms. Tan, muscular arms stick out from under that crisp dress shirt. Even casual, he looks like the powerhouse CEO that he is. My heart rate kicks up a notch at the sight of him.

As Jamie nudges me forward, I clear my throat as I do my best to look unaffected by his presence.

“Mr. McPherson,” I acknowledge him, but don’t look at him. I slide into my desk chair and enter the password to my computer, bringing the screen back to life.

“Good morning,” he says from behind me and I still keep my eyes trained on my computer. “And good morning, Jamie,” he says, acknowledging her.

I glance up at Jamie and see her smile at him knowingly. Dammit, Jamie.

“Morning, Mr. McPherson. Busy weekend getting to know New York City?” she asks him with the kind of innocence only a skilled liar could pull off. I’m going to fucking kill her. I narrow my eyes at her and she winks at me.

I spin around in my chair to look at Drew, whose eyes jump back and forth between us, and I can see he’s picked up that I’ve filled her in. I hang my head in shame and shake my head.

“It was a wonderful weekend,” he tells her honestly.

“Do anything exciting?” she asks, her tone snarky and her questions intruding. “Or anyone?” she says under her breath and I choke.

“Are you okay?” Drew asks me.

“Fine,” I cough out, tossing a glare at Jamie, who giggles and slides into her desk chair. I pick up a pen off my desk and throw it at her. It hits her back. She bursts into laughter and Drew shakes his head in amusement at us.

He leans over my shoulder and whispers into my ear, “I missed you last night.” His warm breath causes me to shiver and catch my breath. “I didn’t like waking up and you not being there,” he continues, knowing the effect he has on me.

I shift in my chair and sit up straight, trying to drown out the throbbing that has started between my legs.

I spin slowly toward him and stop, his face mere inches from mine. “I slept remarkably well,” I tell him.

He smiles. “Liar.”

“I’m not lying,” I whisper.

“You are.” He brushes a knuckle over my top lip and my skin breaks out in goosebumps. “When you lie, your upper lip twitches.” Jesus Christ, this man has me all figured out.

I hold his gaze and my heart stammers in my chest. Looking at him, I can’t help but feel that I’ve missed him too.

“I’d like to meet with you later to go over a few things,” he says, standing up. “How does eleven thirty in my office sound?”

“Sounds fine,” I muster out.

“See you then, Gracie.”

Drew saunters out of my cube and down the hallway. I can’t help it as my eyes follow him as he walks through the rows of cubes until he reaches his office. I notice Jamie watching him too before she spins around in her chair and faces me.

“Holy fuck,” she hisses. “That man has it bad for you.” I look back at Drew’s office and watch the door close before I look at Jamie again.

“I know.” And sadly, I have it just as bad for him.

Our Review

“Let him care for you. Let him love you.”

Unexpectedly You was an easy, low drama read. A bit of flirty fun, intense insta-love and lots of hot passionate sex. Lots of sex! Drew and Gracie certainly had fervent sexual chemistry and one very fiery sex life!

‘I used to roll my eyes at the cheesy insta-love romances that I enjoy reading, never believing that love could happen so easily…..love can happen instantaneously. I truly believe that now.’

Sometimes we just need an entertaining story to escape into and Rebecca Shea delivered just that. In Andrew (Drew) McPherson, she gave us a domineering yet vulnerable and yummy CEO of AM Advertising, one of the country’s foremost powerhouse advertising firms. Drew is not without issues – sibling rivalry and betrayal to name a couple, and Gracie entering his life knocks him for six.

A one-night stand was supposed to be just that. A night of wild passion and a parting of ways…but of course…. You know what they say about the best-laid plans? Drew and Gracie’s paths cross (well, more like collide) when Drew buys out Williams Global, the company Gracie works for. Her hot one-night stand is now her very hot boss. Awkward!

‘It was supposed to be one night where I freed myself of the expectations I constantly put on myself.’

Grace (Gracie) Morgan carries the trouble of the world on her shoulders, always caring about everyone else, taking on responsibility well beyond her means. Drew falls hard and fast for Gracie. Here is a woman who doesn’t just take, she’s full of sass and doesn’t take his crap, questioning him at every turn.

Drew and Gracie have one hell of an insta love affair – physically they can’t keep their hands off each other, emotionally, they fall hard and fast – even 48 hours after their wild night, Drew wants Gracie to move in with him. Talk about moving fast!

‘He went from zero to sixty in a week.’

Rebecca Shea wrote a drama-free, easy read romance, delivering a sizzling romantic connection between Drew and Gracie. We didn’t feel as though we were meant to get to know the characters on a deeper level, we were simply meant to enjoy their intense fast-paced romantic and sexually charged relationship, which we did.

“Stop trying to save me,” she snaps. “I don’t need to be rescued.”

Fabulously entertaining supporting characters brought us some light-hearted moments.  Drew and Gracie’s battle of wills entertained us as the controlling alpha met his match in the independent Gracie.

Synopsis

One night of unbridled passion.
It was the only thing Andrew McPherson and Grace Morgan could afford.

Intense.
Sexy.
Unforgettable.

They promised they would never see each other again, but fate had other plans.
Andrew’s entire life has been spent working toward one goal—to own the top advertising and public relations company in the world. He’s driven, ruthless when it comes to business, never letting anything stand in his way…until Grace.

Grace has worked hard to build her advertising career. She’s fiercely talented and dedicated to her clients. Grace has no interest in getting involved with a man when she knows her focus should be on her career and paying off her mounting debt.

Andrew knows better than to get involved with a woman who is completely off limits, but he never backs down from what he wants, and he won’t stop until Grace is his…only this might cost him more than he’s willing to give.
