This was a detour worth taking . . .

For as long as she can remember, Meilin Wu has had her life mapped out, and she's well down her chosen path--which had no warning signs about a tall, golden Brit who would bowl her over the night before her arranged marriage . . .

Drew Robinson has nearly finished his formal education and is ready to face the world when he meets Meilin, an exquisite beauty with Chinese ancestry. He doesn't mind she's ten years older, and the fact she knows Mandarin only makes her that much more a perfect fit for his upcoming adventures in China. He just has to get her to dump her fiancé and convince her that a trip in China will only enhance her established design business.

Easy for a guy who's known for seeing sunshine wherever he goes. Right?

About Shea McMaster:

Shea McMaster lives for traditional romance. Born in New Orleans, raised in California, Shea got moved to Alaska in 1977, where she attended high school before running back to California to get her English degree from Mills College. Alas, once back home she met and fell in love with her own forever true hero, a born and raised Alaska man. Since then she’s had a love-hate relationship with America’s largest state.

With her one and only son half way through college, and mostly out of the house, Shea is fortunate to spend her days engaged in daydreaming and turning those dreams into romantic novels and novellas featuring damsels in distress rescued by their own brains and hunky heroes. She also writes under the steamy romances under the name Morgan O’Reilly.

A journey into a new culture to find true love (Sunday, July 10, 2016)
Reviewer: Liz Gavin

*** I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***

Boy am I glad I got it!

I loved it and couldn’t put it down. Literally. I had tons of homework and work to do and still couldn’t make myself stop reading Meilin and Drew’s story.

It was so refreshing to delve into a different culture than mine and such a great opportunity to know more about it. Their story and struggles are quite realistic and accurately depict the values and priorities of a culture that puts family first and above all else. Growing up in an individualistic society such as ours, it might sound farfetched for some people. But believe me when I say it is not. Meilin;s conduct was exactly what I expected it would be and I loved it. Sorry, guys. I’m against all kinds of spoilers so that is as much as I will say on the subject.

Just as the storyline is realistic, the characters are believable and multifaceted. That goes for both main and supporting characters. They seem to jump out of the pages right in front of you. Drew is so awesome and droolworthy you just want to hang out with him. Well, to be honest, the ladies will want a tad more than that, but back off - he’s taken. LOL Oh, I wasn’t talking about Meilin; I was talking about me! He’s my newest book boyfriend. Hehe Seriously, though, they make for such a great couple! Meilin is gorgeous, bright, and loyal. Drew is exactly the same! Birdie, Randi and Court are amazing and even pain-in-the-b… Jack is an interesting character. Despite his pain-in-the-b…ness, that is.

Finally, even though this is book 2 in a series, it is a standalone story. I haven’t read the first one and was perfectly able to follow the characters and their journey. However, Shea gives us enough glimpses into Randi and Court’s story to makes us want for more. Book 1 just made its way into my never ending TBR list. LOL And I’m so psyched to find out Book 3 is about Birdie’s story. I loved her so much! There… the list just grows bigger and bigger every day.

I recommend this book for anyone looking for something different to read this summer vacation. You’ll find romance, friendship, and family in Her Unexpected Affair. But most importantly, you will find an ‘against-all-odds’ kind of love story while learning something a different culture. Or revisiting your own, depending on the case. Either way, Meilin and Drew’s story will warm our heart.
