Not expecting anything in return, I’m shocked when I arrive at my office today and see the dozen of white roses with a pink trim around them. I reach in for the card and brace myself for his words.
Words that I’ve missed hearing, so today I’ll take what I can get.
Tabby Cat,
I received the card and thank you. He was a great man and confidant to me for many years. I hope you like the roses.
I think of you every day and dream of you each night.
“I do too. I do too,” I say out loud to the card, as I reach up to pluck one of the roses out of the vase. Bringing it to my nose, I inhale and release the bottled up anger. I haven’t the slightest idea to how he figured it out, but he did. Carter Northwood figured out my flower.

Unexpected Chances teaser 3

Tabitha Michealson is an executive assistant at her best friend's business and after a failed marriage is all about partying hard, living hard, hooking up, and avoiding love at all costs. Her nickname is firecracker, and she has no problem living up to that moniker.
Carter Northwood is in a loveless, forced marriage to a baricuda, Bethany, since he was 18. For the past few months he has been attempting to get a divorce, and although he knows he has no real soulmate out there, he will be satisfied with someone who he was able to choose.
These two characters come together after meeting via video conference on a work related project and both felt something happened at first site. 
Unfortunately Tabitha isn't willing at first to try a serious relationship. Carter wants one, but first he must get rid of Bethany.
This story is told in dual POV's, and it's easy to follow the characters thoughts. The incorporation of  secondary characters add extra depth to the story, but not to the point where what they are experiencing takes over what is going on with our main ones.
The story is very well written, but to me it did seem to drag at certain points, I think it was because I was anxious to see them finally come together. But even with what I felt was slower parts of the story,  it still held my attention to where I wanted to continue reading it.
The only thing I will definitely mention and that I didn't see coming was the cliffhanger at the end of the book. The whole time I was thinking I knew where this whole Bethany-Carter-Tabitha story line was going to end up, now I find myself chomping at the bit wanting to see if my instincts were right or if I was totally way off base.
I gave this book 4 stars and I hope everyone enjoys reading it.
