REVIEW: Unlikely in Love by Ashlie Knapp


Laura's thoughts...

“Unlikely In Love” was my first book by author Ashlie Knapp. I honestly really enjoyed it. Annabelle ‘Anna’, grew up living with her nutty Granny, in a small town in Oklahoma. Her Father, Granny’s son, died when Anna was little. Mum had up and left. So poor Granny had to raise another kid, even though she lost her husband shortly before her son passed. Anna always wanted to leave for somewhere bigger and better, but she had to drop out of college to look after Granny when she became ill. Now at 27 she feels stuck. Wyatt in the incredibly sexy man Anna went to high school with. He’s only improved with age. Wyatt has just returned from his third army tour. He’s broken. Nightmares and horrible memories haunt him. These two are drawn to each other. Helping mend what’s broken in them both. It’s a beautifully written story and I could not put it down. Granny had me in embarrassing fits of laughter. The things this lady got up to were hilarious! *the voodoo *the ‘sexy pink elephant’ paint *her funeral music *setting Annabelle up on a dating website which lead to a date with a mortician I could go on and on. Granny needs a book! An absolute must read.

Krista's thoughts...

Unlikely in Love is a sweet, quick and easy read. Annie and Wyatt both have had a rough go and find their way with each other's help. Annie's grandmother totally steals the show for me in this book! What's better than a hot pink door? The second book is just as a good!

Roxanne's thoughts...

I enjoyed reading this book. I felt right at home with the book being set in my home state of Oklahoma. Ashlie Knapp described the weather here to a tee. She did justice to our colleges and I LOVED how she incorporated the NBA team as well as the many Disney references. This is the first book I read of hers and I can tell you it will not be the last. This story will pull at your heartstrings and will also have you rolling in laughter. The story begins with the reading of Annie’s grandmother Sophie’s will. We learn a lot about Sophie and how she raised Annie throughout the story. Annie is not afraid of who she is and is comfortable in her own skin. Even being an oddball in high school she did not shy away from always being herself. Wyatt, the high school football player that Annie always had a crush on, is back home after serving 3 tours overseas. He’s broken and fears he will never be able to have normal life. This is where you stop reading all the reviews and go read this book! You will fall in love with all the characters. I promise!!
