Series Blitz and Review of Unexpected and Unexpected Affliction by Amity Cross

Series: Unexpected
Author: Amity Cross
Genre: Erotic Romance



Blair is looking for an escape.
West is looking for a connection.
One down and out woman. One isolated rock star. Life at the top is lonely, but so is life at the bottom.
Blair is just looking for someone to take the edge off her crappy life. Dull the pain, breathe a little life into her neglected body. A chance meeting at a bar leads to a night of passion. No names, no personal details. Just sex.
Well, it wasn't personal until she sees the guy standing on a stage ten meters in front of her. How the hell didn't she realize that the guy who blew her mind is the guitarist out of that dirty rock 'n' roll band, Affliction? And why is he chasing her down the street? And how does he know her name?
Sometimes you find the things you didn't even know you were looking for in the most unexpected places.

Warning: This book is EROTIC ROMANCE and contains a lot of descriptive sex, strong language, lickable rock stars and one a** kicking female lead. 18+ due to mature sexual content

4 Stars

 Part 1
This is a great short read.  I really like the main characters.  Blair comes off as very confident and she knows what she wants, at the beginning of the story.   But then she takes that mask off.  She's broken, everybody leaves her.  So she leaves them first, no feelings and a string of one night stands. 

I really wasn't expecting her to act like that right at the start, usually it is the male character.  West was who shie picked up.  She has no idea that he is the lead singer/guitarist for Affliction and also a recovering addict. 

He has an insta attraction to Blair.  One night isn't enough for him. 

When they meet a second time, they strike up a deal.  I think this is a great start to their story and I started the second story right away to find out what happened next with these two. 

Part 2

This was on okay novella.  I would have liked a little more of a story line at the beginning to go along with all the sex scenes.  Just about all of the first half was sex.   Don't get me wrong, I love a steamy scene, and these were steamy.  But I like a story line to go along with it. 

The second half really picked up with the story.  Blair went with Went on Afflictions U.K. tour. 

Will Blair be able to handle everything, or will she end up running?  Will West handle it all, or will he relapse?

Part 3

This third part is my favorite so far.  This story had more story line and there were still a few steamy sex scenes.  The truth finally comes out in this part.  But, will it be enough for West to win Blair back?  Will she forgive him for everything that has happened? 

Overall, this was an enjoyable read.  Wes and Blair fight hard and then love hard, rinse and repeat.  They have their ups and downs, but they make it through them.

4 Stars

Part 4

This is Joe and Alexis' story.   I really like how this story started.  The first meeting on the plane was great and so was the night in Hong Kong.  I felt that the story was rushed though.  I would have really loved to have more from these two.

Part 5

I love Sasha.  She's the temp manager for Affliction.  She was the stage manager, but when Furlough messed everything up, the band asked asked her to step up.  And that she did.  Mick is the man-whore lead guitarist.  Sasha has had a crush on him for the past 3.5 years.  She's in love with him.  What will happen when he finds out about her crush on him and he actually really sees her?  This is their story and I think it's my favorite, still have one more to go.  I loved the scene in the lobby of the label's office.

Part 6

Ok, I know that I said Mick and Sasha's story was my favorite, but that has changed now.  Rob and Lilly are now my favorites.  I'm glad that the series ended on their story.  Rob has finally been bitten by the love bug that has made its way through the band when he saves Lilly from a mugger.  He finally tells everyone about his past.  Lilly is on the run but what will happen when what she's running from finally catches up to her?

This is an enjoyable read.  I did want more of the stories though.  But that happens with novellas, they always leave you wanting more.  In this set, we get the stories of the other guys in the band.
