Blog Tour: Unpredictable by Shantel Tessier (Review + Excerpt + Giveaway)

Title: Unpredictable
Author: Shantel Tessier
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: April 6, 2015

My niche in life is being an asshole. It suits me. I’m that guy who jokes about love and how settling down is overrated. Why would a guy ever fall for one woman when you can have as many as you want? Makes no sense to me.

But if being a cop has taught me anything, it’s that life is unpredictable. And that is exactly what Katherine is. The woman makes me question my sanity on a daily basis. Sometimes she makes me want to keep her to myself; other times, she makes me want to jump off a cliff just to get away from her.

Yet I still find myself turning into that little pussy I said I’d never be. Showing up on her front door holding flowers, only to have her throw them at me. Calling just to say hello, only for her to press ignore. Yeah, I’ve become a pussy all right. A whipped one at that. At first she was a challenge, but now I don’t like the fact that she is playing hard to get. But when someone comes after me, threatens my job, my life. It’s her that stands by my side. It’s her who has to pay for my sins. And it’s her who I’m threatened to lose. One thing that you need to know about me is that I'll fight for what I believe in. And I believe in her more than myself.

What’s that saying? Boy meets girl and the rest is history…Well, those who fuck with what is mine, will become history.

My Thoughts:

I'm a huge fan of love-hate relationship books. I just hate books where the main couple is just so cheesy and sweet together. It makes me wanna hurl and quite frankly, very very bored. So when I saw this book, I knew I had to read it. I loved the idea but I was a bit apprehensive that it there would also be too much fighting back and forth and nothing else. 

Unpredictable is told from both Katherine and Parkers POVs. They live in the same town but have never met until Katherines ex calls the cops on her when they have a fight and she ends up being arrested by the cop on duty, Parker. Things gets more awkward when they meet again on a friends wedding and sparks start to fly, and even with their hatred for each other is strong, they can't fight the pull between them. 

I absolutely adored this book. It was one of the easiest books to get into and I finished it in one setting. Even though the writing felt awkward at times, I couldn't not love the book or the characters. Both MCs are very real and relatable. There was nothing fake about them and they had many imperfections. While most characters in other books have that as well, they tend to be more on the perfectly imperfect side of things with faults that often make us swoon instead of making us relate to them. This was not the case in Unpredictable. Katherine and Parker were very real and had real life problems that everyone usually has. It's what made me like this book very much. Parker is not a brooding guy, he's more like the goofy guy who also happens to be a big jerk, a softie and an alpha-male kind of guy. You don't find that often in books, and I totally liked it. Katherine has her issues, and she is a real b with an itch. I wanted to smack a few times, but I liked the fact that she didn't blush every other scene and that she was very open when it came to sex and what she liked and wasn't shy about it. It's a nice change from the usual female MCs cliché.  

The other thing I loved about this book was how funny it was. It cracked me up so many times I lost count. Even though this book was seriously hot and the naughty scenes made me fan myself, it still managed to be funny. Parker as I mentioned before can be really goofy and there was one scene - I'm not saying what it is, you have to read it to find out- that just made me LOL because it was so real and very unexpected. His relationship with Kat didn't turn into a boring one when they finally got together, it was still filled with sizzling hot chemistry and humor, and their fighting wasn't overboard. 

All in all, this was a great read that I it enjoyed very much.
