Review: Unforeseen Heartbeat by Maureen Mayer

Used… Broken… Confused…

It only took one drunken mistake four years ago for Maddie Harrington to learn that when you fully give yourself over to a man, you should never expect anything in return. Since that night, her views on love have become distorted, believing men would only want her for the pleasure her body could bring them. She in turn finds herself hooking up with random guys, but never keeps them around long enough to see if there could possibly be something more.

That is…until Hunter Bryant enters the picture.

When the handsome pre-med student shows up in the right place at the right time, captivating her with his stormy gaze, she immediately pushes him away, thinking he’s no different than any other guy. The deeper Hunter delves into her life, trying to break through her iron-clad walls, the more she begins to question whether she is truly capable of opening her heart up to another man.

Maddie soon finds herself forced to make a difficult decision, one that will forever change both of their lives. Will she shut Hunter out of her life for good or will she finally open up her heart and allow herself the life she never dreamed she deserved?

**Please note: Unforeseen Heartbeat can be read as a standalone, however it is highly recommended that you read book one in the series, Relinquishing Liberty.

Review by Faith Dotson
Maddie has sworn off love and is only taking from men what she wants, thanks to giving her V-card up to her brother's best friend. And the fact that he was a total man whore. Maddie has spent her time drinking and bed hopping. She is hell on wheels. So with that being said, Maddie gets herself into a bit of a pickle at frat party when someone she trusts drugs her drink. Enter Hunter, the all mighty delicious pre-med hottie.

"You have no idea how fucking sexy it is for me to find your pussy slick and ready, knowing that I did that to you."

Maddie has no memory of the night before, so when she wakes up and has a hot stranger in her room she freaks, especially since she in the house of the one person she hates the most, Shayne. Maddie lays into Hunter and forces him to leave and has the people she loves explain to her the previous night's events. They help Maddie understand that Hunter is thoughtful and caring; she has no restraint when it comes to him.

I loved how possessive he had become, and he wasn's afraid to show it, but it wasn't like I had any desire to get away from him any time soon, if ever. I'd stay here wrapped up in him for all eternity if I could.

Hunter doesn't really take no for an answer. The word relentless pops into my head when he keeps showing up. Not only is Hunter a pre-med student, he is also in the military to help pay for his college. That right there makes him schmexy and he did not need to be the bad boy even though he does own a bike and has tattoos. He just makes your heart melt the way he shows Maddie that she is loved and how she deserves to be loved.

"Because I want it to mean something to you. I'm not going to just f#*k you, Maddie, I'm not like that, and you deserve so much better than just a quick, emotionless f#*k. If you really want me, let me take things slow. Let me show you how special you really are to me."
 Their relationship develops from barely tolerating the other to life altering. When events start happening in Maddie's life, Hunter takes her safety into his own hands, proving he will stop at nothing to keep her safe. Don't get me wrong, Hunter deserved a face punch when he kept a huge secret from Maddie, but Maddie deserved one too. I felt these two were never going to get it together. Then there was the Aahhhhh moment that made me swoon inside.

"That was me loving you, and I will always show you just how much I love you, whether it's through my actions or my words. I never want you to think any less of what we share together. I'm not like those other assholes you were with before me. I want more than just your body, Madelyn. I want all of you. Heart, body and soul. And I promise I will always cherish this moment, because you finally trusted me enough to open yourself up to me and let me love you the way you deserve to be loved."

The author grabbed my attention and kept it through the whole book. You never knew what was going to happen between these two. When these two finally collided-holy smokes Batman! The secondary characters kept you in stitches. Be prepared when you meet Maddie's best friend, Liberty. (her story was told in Reqluishing Liberty) I was just heartbroken in some parts that I thought I would never be put back together. With every twist and turn Maureen gave us, we still got the happy, sexy, tantalizing love of hope.

"I love you, Madelyn. God, I love you so f#*king much."

Guess only they know what their hearts can endure!!!!

"Dear Lord, could you guys be any hotter together? Liberty raised her hand fanning her face. "I swear you two must have just made a baby the way you were going at it."
