Review: Her Unexpected Detour - Kyra Jacobs

A sweet category romance from Entangled's Bliss imprint...

Sometimes it's not the destination, but the detour...
Kayla has the perfect strategy for a broken heart: work, work, and more work. Then a storm sends her car skidding off the road, stranding her in Mount Pleasant. Fortunately, rescue comes in the form of the incredibly handsome but gruff Brent Masterson. And he's hot enough to tempt Kayla into doing something she never thought she could do...
Brent Masterson swore he would never give into the fierce attraction that's been sizzling between him and Kayla since they first met. He has his own demons, and he won't risk his heart again. Not even for someone as gorgeous and amazing as Kayla. So...how exactly did he end up in Kayla's bed last night?
But sometimes all it takes is an ice storm to show two broken hearts the way home...


Review:
I rather enjoyed Her Unexpected Detour. At a time when most characters are doing it on the closest flat surface by the second chapter, with that being the extent of the chemistry between them, it is refreshing to read a book with real character development. Hell, the characters don't even like each other half the time. This is what made the sparks between them and the eventual fall so much sweeter.


The characters were enjoyable and I could not get enough of Ruby. she reminded me of my own grandma who knew more about wrestling than knitting and refused to answer if any of the grandchildren had the nerve to call her grandma. with such a great supporting cast of characters this series is sure to become a memorable one you can come back to and enjoy several times over.

Unfortunately, I had to take some points away for the unexpectedness of Kayla actions towards the end. they seemed to not only come out of left field but were completely out of character for her. One second she's contemplating staying and building a life with Brett.  The next, she is packing and planning to leave without saying goodbye. Other than that slight issue, I adored the characters and felt the story was strong and entertaining.
