Andie had it all planned out.
When you are a politician’s daughter who’s pretty much raised yourself, you learn everything can be planned or spun, or both. Especially your future.
Important internship? Check.
Amazing friends? Check.
Guys? Check (as long as we’re talking no more than three weeks).
But that was before the scandal. Before having to be in the same house with her dad. Before walking an insane number of dogs. That was before Clark and those few months that might change her whole life.
It has been quite a long time since I’ve last read a contemporary book so in the beginning, I had to adjust myself with the author’s style of writing.
I love every aspect of this book. It really caught me off guard by the characters humorous remarks and I couldn’t help but to laugh heartily. The story highlights friendship and love. It also highlights that in life, not everything can be done and achieved with a game plan. Sometimes, the most unexpected events can actually be what we are searching for in life.
I adore the characters in this story. But I really cannot shrug off how perfect Mark McCallister is. Perfect, in every single way. He reminds me so much of Clark Kent because they’re both writers and are really good looking.
I have to admit that Andie’s life is sort of awesome in a way. She just doesn’t realize it. She has a dream-like boyfriend, friends who would always be there for her no matter what and a father that finally appreciates her.
The Unexpected Everything is a light and fun read with a hint of humour in the side. This book is definitely one of my favourite contemporary books, without a doubt.
