Publisher's Summary

USA Today best-selling author Claudia Burgoa brings you a fresh romantic comedy filled with an unexpected surprise, a wicked billionaire, and plenty of laughs. 

The right life is the one you never see coming. 

I had it all. The luxury apartment, hot dates, and the big office to go with long nights at the office. Life was perfect. 

But after a one-night stand, two little lines on a pregnancy test, and three lost legal cases later... Well, overnight I went from career lawyer to single mom. 

It’s okay, I can do it. I’m ready to face this alone until....

Along comes Nathaniel Chadwick. Billionaire adrenaline junky. Everyone’s favorite playboy...and my sister’s brother-in-law. 

He’s as hot as he is jaded. When it comes to relationships and family, he’d rather jump off a cliff. I wrote him off long ago, except since he learned about the baby he’s been by my side. 

Is it pregnancy hormones, or is there something real happening between us? 

I didn’t expect any of this...most of all him. 

Didn’t Expect You is a billionaire romance of unexpected pregnancies, exciting encounters, and flirty love. It includes a very confused dog, a precious newborn, and a family you might want to belong to. This chick-lit novel is a romantic comedy with a HEA guaranteed!

Fantastic Story with Wonderful Narration

This is the perfect book to add a wealth of talent in the narration department. It was wonderful to listen to Aaron Sherlock, Jason Clarke, Virginia Rose, Brooke Bloomingdale, Teddy Hamilton, Connor Brown and Liam Sanderson bring the characters and their story to life.

If you are looking for a fun, entertaining, emotional read look no further that Didn’t Expect You ( Against All Odds #2), it’s a wonderful, fun story with characters you will love and a plot that will captivate you from the first page to the last line.
Nate and Nyx are complete opposites and at times you wonder if this couple actually have anything in common but as the saying goes “Opposites attract “ but the witty banter they share seems to pull them together to form an unbreakable bond. This is a journey about two people who are strong and independent as individuals but together they become stronger as they embark on the bumpy road to true love. This lighthearted fun read is one of my favourite books by Ms Burgoa, it ticked all my boxes and touched me on so many levels, It’s emotional, it’s funny , I loved Nate and Nyx and I was engrossed in their romance.
Every narrator added their own bit of special to this wonderful listen.

True Love Story

This was one of the best modern love stories that I’ve read in a while. It wasn’t the usual romance smut that writers now write.

Fabulously Captivating & Heartfelt! Great Listen🎧

Nyx, an attorney who is looking to make partner, except her number one supporter in the firm left and it has been an uphill battle to stay afloat. Her being sick and turning off clients did not help matters either, and it did not take long for her boss to give her the boot. Luckily, her old boss has her back and will help her with an unlawful termination case. Nate, the social one of the two Chadwick brothers, Ford, is the brains behind the development and Nate is the deal maker. He likes to live life to the fullest but is a cynic for love and relationship and is a complete player with the ladies, a “love them and leave them” type of guy. Nate is drawn to Nyx, there is something about her that makes him want to get to know her better, but Nyx knows he is not relationship material and she does not want to complicate things for her sister and his brother, who already warned Nate to stay away from her. But when Nate finds out she is pregnant, he wants to be there for her and becomes her fiercest protector.I loved the layers and complexity to these characters, also loved how everything played out, watching Nate not only fall for Nyx, but show his caring side and then deal with his past and inner demons to help him grow as a person, knock down that wall he built around his heart. Nyx also grew as a person too, coming to grips with her nurturing behavior for her siblings. This wonderfully plotted story has the perfect balance of drama, witty dialogue and humor, heartfelt emotions and a slow, but oh so sweet, romance. Claudia Burgoa, thank you for another fabulously entertaining story and emotional rollercoaster ride.

🎧📚🎧 Claudia Burgoa had the perfect cast to bring her characters and story to life, a multi-cast and a fabulous lineup of talented narrators and versatile voice artists. Aaron Shedlock and Virginia Rose covered the roles of the two lead characters, with Brooke Bloomingdale and Jason Clarke returning as Persy and Chad, and Liam Sanderson and Connor Brown joins Teddy Hamilton covering the roles for secondary/support characters. Their portrayal of the characters is spot on, giving each a voice that fits their character’s persona to a tee, sounding believable and just as I picture the characters to sound. These entertaining storytellers are a pleasure to listen to and their narration enhanced this wonderful story to another level. Thank you for another fabulous listen.

Fantastic friends to lovers with amazing narration

This is another wonderful book from Claudia Burgoa. This is a fantastic friends to lovers book.

Nate and Nyx are on different paths in their life but they are brought together by an amazing friendship.

Nate is a stand-up guy and Nyx is really fortunate to have him in her life.

Nyx is a workaholic and is forced to slow down and think about her future.

The slow burn between these two is off the charts and it’s an beautiful love story.

The audiobook is fantastic - the amazing cast of narrators bring each character to life and give each of them a voice with depth and emotion.

Best friends-to-lovers romance ever!

Okay, this is, hands-down, one of the best slow-burn, friends-to-lovers romances I've read, or in this case, listened to. It's always a good bet that Claudia Burgoa is gonna take you on a fantastic journey with her characters, and this one was extra special. I was caught up from the beginning and loved everything about this love story. Due to circumstances, Nate and Nyx take their time and they become the best of friends. Nate is pretty much the perfect best friend/love interest. He's sweet, generous, thoughtful, protective, witty, and he says the most wonderful things at just the right time. If Nyx hadn't fallen in love with him. I was completely ready to throw my hat in the ring (just sayin'). Most of the key players in Didn't Expect You were introduced in Wrong Text, Right Love, including our romantic couple here, so if you haven't checked that one out, I highly recommend it. Technically, you can read this as a standalone, but you'll want every minute you can get with this crazy bunch. Since this is the audiobook, I have to mention the wonderful narration. And just check out that list of narrators! I'd listened to most of these before, so I expected good things, and they delivered. All the feels come through loud and clear, and I was completely immersed in the story.

Slow Burn Accidental Pregnancy!

Didn't Expect You by Claudia Burgoa was a fun twist on an accidental pregnancy trope. In this romance, you get Nyx and Nate's story. After listening to Persphone and Ford's story, I was hoping that these two would get together. I loved how their friendship grew into a passionate love story. Nate did a complete 180 and really turned on the charm to take care of Nyx.

This audiobook was narrated by Aaron Shedlock and Virginia Rose with a supporting cast. Both Virginia and Aaron were spot on performing their characters. In Virginia's performance, you could feel Nyx's doubts and devotion! Aaron portrayed Nate's charismatic dedication to Nyx perfectly! I'm looking forward to more from Claudia Burgoa.

An Okay Sequel

First of all I want to say that I enjoyed the cast of narrators. I love the fact that the author chose to use the same actor for each individual character in all her books in the series. It just makes them stand out. Although I love Nix, I didn’t care for her as much as I did for her sister. I think the fact that I feel that way is I had to stop in the middle of the audiobook to listen to other books, then go back and finish this. It took me a while to remember what was happening, but by then I was so lost with the momentum of the story. The chemistry between Nate and Nix didn’t seem as palpable to me.

I’m happy that they got their HEA, and that Nate was able to adopt the baby, but we never really fully found out what happened to the baby daddy. I know there’s another book in the series and I’m anxious to listen to that one considering Teddy Hamilton is one of my favorite narrators. I can already anticipate it being good.

Still, I don’t want to say many negative things about it because I did enjoy it and Claudia knows how to put humor into her romance. I did laugh, but not as much as I did in her first book of the series. She still one of my favorite new authors.

No win situation

Unwanted and unexpected pregnancy. Had sex with some relative of the bosses for recreation. Protection not as good as it should have been. Fired by the boss for unrelated reason. Met sole mate. Characters mostly under developed. We never even met the baby daddy. But what was there was entertaining.

Great!

This was unexpected but so good. This is one of those stories that hit you in the feels from beginning to end. Nyx and Nate are so different yet so alike that it was hard to not see them together. What I loved most of their relationship was that it developed organically. Yes, you can feel their attraction but their actual coming together doesn't happen overnight and as a reader, you are invested. As much as Nate would want to be portrayed differently, he actually is sweet and protective and I loved seeing Nyx bring out that out in him. Sometimes the unexpected is exactly what you need. After having read this and then listening to the audio, it brought a totally different side to the story. It comes to life and I could picture everything. I actually couldn't stop. The cast does such a great job with these characters and it has also given me a few new favorite narrators to listen to.

Nyx and Nate!

Nyx has always been the one in her family that others go to whenever they need assistance or advice. She is focused on her career as a lawyer and has plans for what she wants her future to look like and it didn’t include getting pregnant by a man she never wants to see again. She is floundering as she adjusts to her new normal but the last person she expected to be her support system was Nate, the brother of the man her sister is marrying.

Nate is a man who has been focused on his career as well and isn’t looking for love or a relationship. He has always been attracted to Nyx so when he finds out about the baby she is carrying he is determined to be there to support her through all the ups and downs whether she wants it or not.

Nate and Nyx have a lot of similarities both when it comes to their careers, their families and their views on relationships. They both believed they knew the direction they wanted their future to take until they found what they didn’t know they were looking for in each other. Although the story is told primarily by two narrators the narrators for the secondary characters added a new dimension to the experience.

A good read

A sweet romance between Nat and Nix with a quirky but lovable family. Some funny moments. An altogether good read. No cliffhangers and a nice HEA.
