More Than She Expected by Karen Templeton
Neighbor, handyman and…husband? One woman finds her heart's desire right in her own backyard in award-winning author Karen Templeton's newest addition to her popular miniseries Jersey Boys!
He's just a friend! is the mantra pregnant Laurel Kent lives by while pretending not to stare at sexy Tyler Noble, the gorgeous neighbor who's been all-too-kindly playing Mr. Fix-It in her house. After all, she needs the help more than she cares to admit—her sharp-tongued grandmother is her only family. But it's getting nearly impossible to ignore the sparks and butterflies she feels in her tummy every time he smiles at her…and that's not the baby talking!
It's ironic to Tyler that he's repairing the fence separating his yard from Laurel's when all he wants is zero barriers between them! Sure, she's pregnant, and no, she insists she's not looking for Husband #2. But he knows if she'd give him a chance, he could prove that he's the missing piece needed to complete her new family….
My Review: More Than She Expected
This is a nice story. I like the characters. I would like to read more of the Jersey boys! The plot was good.
Their was one love scene that I skipped over.
The plot Laurel Kent has moved in next door to Tyler Noble. When Tyler's dog escaped his back yard into Laurel's. He realizes that his dog is going under the fence. So they decide to put a brick fence up.
When Tyler realizes she is pregnant and the dad wants no part of the baby. He helps Laurel and brings his own issues of his past up.
I really like the secondary characters in this book. How the Noble family steps into help Laurel too. Laurel really only has her grandmother in her life. Who stepped in and raised her after her mother died.
I also liked how people stepped into help Laurel and how hard it was for her to accept the help.
This story makes you think a lot about what family is. Weather you are adopted, or abandoned by your parents.
I really like how the different people related to each other.
I will read more books from Karen Templeton in the future.
I was given this ebook to read and in exchange promised to give honest review of it by Netgalley and Harlequin.
