REVIEW - Unexpectedly Hers (Sterling Canyon #3) by Jamie Beck

The Book
Release Date: 21 February 2017
Goodreads link

By day, bashful wallflower Emma Duffy works at her family’s bed-and-breakfast. By night, she secretly pens erotic romance hot enough to melt the snow in their cozy Rockies town.
But Emma’s real life is about to heat up when her mother books the entire inn to a professional snowboarder, hoping the publicity will put them on the map. In a karmic twist of fate, that guest is Wyatt Lawson, the man with whom Emma had shared the secret one-night stand that became the inspiration for her novel and its dreamy hero. Worse, a film crew is documenting his comeback just as her debut is about to hit the shelves. Emma’s only saving grace is that Wyatt doesn’t remember her—and hopefully he never will.
When Wyatt arrives in Sterling Canyon for several weeks of intense training, the last tumble he expects to take is falling for a girl, especially one as shy as Emma. Unlike groupies with their hidden agendas, she isn’t using him—or so he believes…until the film crew uncovers Emma’s pen name and steamy novel.
Wyatt’s comeback run can withstand a fall or two, but can his heart recover from this crash and burn?

My Review  3 STARS
**My thanks to NetGalley and Montlake Romance for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This can be read as a stand alone book although it is part of a series and i did not feel as if anything was lost with the other characters by not having read their stories.

This book was ok, but i really struggled that at age 31 Emma was such a wet blanket with her mother and had not reached out to be more of her own person before now.  The fact that she was still living with her mother at the end of the book and using her royalties to fix up the inn also sat as daft, especially as she could have used that money to get her own place and be her own person.  Just daft!!

Emma's mum was also someone i did not like, i mean what adult chastises their 31 year old daughter for kissing someone.  I mean really!

Wyatt was ok but again i had issues with his character, but i did live his brother Ryder who seemed to have more character and lovability than his bland brother.

I will not be reading any further book in this series.
