RELEASE BLITZ!!! Not What I Expected by Jewel E. Ann! + My Review

Not What I Expected by Jewel E. Ann is now live!

Are humans meant to mate for life?

After four kids and an unfortunate but fateful end to her twenty-two-year marriage, Elsie Smith meets the new guy in town.

Kael Hendricks is … a little younger, a lot sexy, and too confident for his own good. He also doesn’t believe in marriage and all that goes with it.

And …

He’s just opened a new business that threatens the livelihood of Elsie’s family’s store–just in time for the holidays.

The problem?

There’s an undeniable attraction that leads to out of control situations, a loss of inhibitions, and a lot of small town gossip.

As Elsie tries to redefine herself and convince her family she isn’t having a midlife crisis, she’s forced to answer the biggest question of all …

Can she love an enemy who will never surrender?

Something different; something wonderful! I love this author’s exceptional storytelling and the spectacular characters she always gives us. This story is not the some ole romance with a typical HEA. Some readers will be disappointed but I’m thrilled with an ending that leaves leeway for my imagination to continue the journey of Elsie and Kael. It’s listed as an enemies to lovers story and it has its moments of unfriendly competition, but Elsie and Kael are an opposites attract as much as anything. Completely different lives and mentalities. Kael is a yummy hero with his Captain America handsomeness and nice guy personality. I was all in with Elsie’s infatuation. It did take me a minute to get on board with their connection. Something was missing for me at the beginning. I did love the out-of-character actions of Elsie as Kael worked his charms on her. There’s a lot of messaging in the story with Elsie coming to grips with her guilt and her new reality, Kael’s views on life and love, and the women in the church’s grief group. Thethe women and their light husband bashing was so funny. Talk about speaking ill of the dead! When the story hit its stride I was totally engrossed and melting with Kael and Elsie’s sexcapades. This is a fantastic romance that’s so much more than the usual as Elsie struggles to find her second act with an empty nest and a young hottie. Loved it!
