Ben Miller met the love of his life the day he crossed paths with Elle James in their high school cafeteria. New to Beaumont, he took a chance when he approached her. Their first encounter was everything his mother ever read to him about fairy tales. He saw the girl who would be his forever.

From the moment Elle James met Ben Miller they’ve been best friends. Everything they did, they did it together, from late night study sessions, family vacations, throwing bottles off the water tower, going to prom and finally moving to California for college.

However, after the almost tragic accident where she nearly lost her twin sister, Elle’s life hasn’t been the same, and neither has her relationship with Ben.

One fateful decision changes the scope of Ben and Elle’s relationship. For one, it means a new beginning. For the other, it means change.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 stars

Poor, Poor Ben. I just want to hug him and keep him forever. Unrequited love is torture. It’s both ecstasy and excruciating. Ben knows this first hand. Years of being in love with his best friend isn’t easy. It seems the only way to survive is to leave.

It’s angsty and hurts your insides. My Unexpected Love is the second of the series, Beaumont- Next Generation. I somehow missed it was the second book and jumped in. My recommendation is to read book one (Holding Onto Forever) first. I was lost and playing catch up. I am especially at a disadvantage because I haven’t read the original series these spin off of either. So for maximum enjoyment and understanding, I highly recommend immersing yourself in the Beaumont world starting at the beginning.
