My Unexpected Love by Heidi McLaughlin
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.
We continue on with more Beaumonts and it never gets old. This is Elle and Ben's story.
While Heidi's storytelling and writing never gets old for me. Elle and Ben are not my most favorite characters. Elle is kinda selfish. Ben is kinda too sweet. Both play games and miscommunicate to no end that could have resolved everything. But then again, had that happened we wouldn't have had their story.
It's still emotional. It's still all-Beaumont. It's still a super enjoyable read.
