Unintentional - Book Two in the Intentional Series



BLURB:

Cade, the gorgeous song man, has every reason to steer clear of commitment and train his soulful eyes, killer dimples, and sexy voice on every beauty swaying to his band. So why is it that he finds himself truly, deeply and unintentionally, fixed on the one woman who is not so easily swept away?

The sequel to Intentional, the debut romantic novel by MK Harkins, Unintentional is the heart-racing new work that follows the tangled thread of Cade in the aftermath of his heartbreak in losing the one woman he thought was his soul mate. After taking a hiatus from his job as an engineer, as well as his role in the band as lead singer, Cade reemerges in the Seattle music scene. Enter Laurel, the tenacious and determined music agent. Laurel is determined to sign him, no matter how clearly reluctant he is. Though they try to resist one another romantically, the magnetism is as immediate as it is powerful.

Unintentional offers readers an intricate, riveting story about the fraught paces of love, while also offering strains of heartwarming humor. With rich detail, authentic characters, and plenty of blood-pumping romance, Unintentional is a moving and multilayered look at how love can slip through our fingers, only to be pulled back again at the most surprising, stirring moments.
Excerpt:

I hate my life. It sucks. It’s been thirty days since the shooting, and things just keep getting worse. I turn over in my bed and groan. I’m hung over again. My body feels like it’s been through a meat grinder then tossed into a dryer, just for fun.
First, I rub my hands over my throbbing temples, hoping to relieve some of the pressure. Next, I try to deal with my gritty, aching eyes by massaging them. Nope, not working. I let out a frustrated moan. Knowing it’s my fault, the agony my body is currently suffering, doesn’t make it any better. Actually, it makes it worse.
I remember telling Mattie four months ago, when we met at the cabin, I wasn’t good with rejection. If she could see me now, she’d know I wasn’t overstating things. I feel like shit – in every way possible.

~My Impressions~
I had the pleasure of reading the debut book Intentional by MK Harkins and all I can say is wow! You see such a demonstrative improvement in her skills from the first book to this book! Don't get me wrong, I loved the first book, but you could tell it was still lacking some  in character development, plot and the ability to move the story along quickly. This book had none of those elements. The characters were fantastic, the plot grabbed ahold of you straight away and the whole story moved at a great pace that kept you intrigued and wanting more.  

I adore Cade. I loved reading about him in the first book and his character has grown so much that you cannot help but develop a soft spot for the man. Laurel's character is also gripping. Together they make a deadly combination that filled the story with intrigue, mystery and all the sizzle you need to make this an epic book. We also get to see Jeremy and Mattie again!

This is another easy book by MK Harkins to recommend to all my readers. Just to see the vast improvement in her writing style alone is enough to pick up this book, but couple that with this incredible story and you have a two fold punch you dont want to miss out on. I personally cannot wait to see what this author turns out next.
