Publisher's Summary

Loving one meant losing the other...

I don't know how it happened. But everything got complicated. So complicated. I don't know where it all started, all I know is that it all fell apart.

Two men have my heart. Loving them both made me lose one. Now, I may lose the other. 

Hearts are fragile. And mine still beats for two. Can we save what we once had? Or is it too unconventional?

Please note: This book was previously released as The Island and has been rewritten. This audiobook cannot be listened to as a stand-alone; it is the conclusion to Unexpected. No MM action - all the attention is on her.

The Perfect Way To End The Duet

This is the ending I needed for this duet. It wasn’t always pretty getting there but it is so worth the journey. I love these characters and felt so much for them. Amie grew and devolved into a strong amazing woman. And I got to fall back in love with certain people that may have ripped my heart out in the first book.

I love the dynamic that Amie, Gabe and Michael have. This is such a satisfying conclusion. The narration is still great!

Great Ending to a Wonderful, Heartfelt Series🎧📚🎧

This is a wonderful and heartfelt continuation of Amie, Gabe and Michael’s story, it picks up where the first book “Unexpected” left off. The characters met while on a volunteer mission, they bonded and then fell in love, all was unexpected, especially the falling in love, none of them were looking for it. According to Gabe and Michael good things happen in three but do they really. When Michael’s past catches up to him leaving him frazzled & insecure, feeling unloved and unwanted, he jumps to conclusions and winds up making a decision that changes everything. This book is more of an emotional journey than the first book but I am happy to say things wind up the way they should by the end. Alyne Hart thank you for another great story and series ending.

Isabella Starr continues to bring these characters and their story to life. You could hear how much heart she puts into her work as she captures the characters emotions and projects them into her performance. She is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen🎧

MFM Romance

This is the conclusion of Amie, Gabe & Micheal's story. Book two picks up right where book 1 stopped. Amie, Gabe. Michael fell in love on the island and then the complications began. Gabe & Michael have know each other from "the system" and have tragic childhood stories and issues. Micheal leaves when he feels that Amie loves Gabe more than him. Book 2 is all about the fallout from the decision; how it affects all three characters. Gabe and Amie continue there relationship but both miss Micheal. Gabe misses him so much that he leaves to find him and figure out what went wrong. No spoilers but this does have a HEA.

This book is an emotional journey and as the title states a very unconventional love story.

Isabella Starr does a good job of narrating each character and bringing the story to life.

Amazing Ending

Title: UNconventional
Author: Alyne Hart
Format: Audio
Narrator: Isabella Starr
Genre: Romance -MFM
Standalone: No - Picks up right where UNexpected ends
Part of a Series: Book two of The Island duet
POV: Amy, Michael and Gabe
Steam Level: Toasty at times
5/5

UNconventional starts right where UNexpected ends and first third of the book is the fallout and learning to live with the fallout of Micheal's decision. I wasn't sure how Alyne Hart was going to resolve this issue or how they were going to be able to recover from it. I was pleasantly surprised on how Alyne Hart dealt with the hurt and betrayal and subsequent healing that Amy, Gabe and Michael needed to do in order to make their relationship grow and thrive. UNconventional was filled with love and heartbreak, friendship and redemption. Overall an amazing story of an unconventional love and the courage to share it with the world

I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Obsession. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Slow Paced, with a Great HEA

This is the second book in The Island Duet, a MFM romance. Amie, Gabe, and Michael's story continues where the first book left off. This is a slow paced journey, filled with misunderstanding, and drama. Their story feels real. The HEA is great. Isabella Starr did a good job with the narration. #AudiobookObsession

Great HEA

This is the second book I've read/listened to by Alyne Hart as I was finishing the duet. I loved how she wrote what felt like could be authentic emotions in the relationship although my heart was hurting so much for them.

Isabella Starr is a good narrator. I enjoyed listening to her and felt like she did great with the male and female voices. Great performance.

Loved it!

Unconventional, the second book in The Island Duet series, is sweet and steamy Ménage romance. I'm actually surprised by how much I enjoyed this story. The relationship dynamic between the characters is tastefully done, genuine, and natural. Alyne Hart has done an incredible job with the plot and character development; I was hooked from start to finish.

Isabella Starr's narration is excellent; she did a fantastic job with the characters' connection and emotions, bringing them to life. I really enjoyed this story, and recommend it.

This was a good story.

I liked this storyline. The characters were interesting and seem to work well.

Isabella Starr is a new narrator for me. I felt some of the emotion of the story was a little muted. Her voice is pleasant.

Book 2 the conclusion

Omgoodness I yelled at this book so much and I loved it. I didn’t want to stop listening. In this book the drama is the first half then we get to the good stuff. I love these characters and their friends. Not the typical issues in a MFM book. No MM. the narration was great. I recommend this series.

Wonderful ending

After listening to Unexpected, I was in need of knowing what was going to happen to Gabe, Michael and Amie! Insecurities, words spoken, and hurt feelings left us with Michael living the three, and now a new normal is trying to be found. Gabe and Amie become a couple and Michael seeks a life that fulfills him. But will any of them find their happiness without being together? This is a story that rips your heart out and slowly puts it back together. I was sad, I was frustrated and just wanted them to find their way back. Life is not always that easy though and their struggles were real. I love stories that give real circumstances with real feelings and Alyne Hart has hit her mark. It is a wonderful ending to this duet and I was completely satisfied!

Isabella Star continues her fabulous narration of this story. I am a big fan of hers and find her voice so easy to listen to. Each character is easy to distinguish and she adds feelings and emotions that tug at your soul. This is a beautiful performance.

Final book

I would recommend this story to listeners who like a lot of angst. It's not a stand alone, you need to read Unexpected (the first in The Island Duet) before this one. Unexpected did a great job of showing the relationship evolve and incorporating the significance of the number three. I think that made the characters' actions in the last scenes of Unexpected and most of Unconventional not seem logical.

Isabella Starr did a good job with the narration. The editing wasn't always smooth, but it wouldn't prevent me from recommending listening to it. It would have been nice to have two or three narrators to voice the different points of view and make the characters stand out from each other a little more.

Final book

I enjoyed the first book much more, but I was glad that this started right where book 1 gave us a cliffhanger! This one was more issues of keeping them apart than something where they faced an issue together. I liked the ending but would have preferred less turmoil. The narrator was excellent again!

🎧Reviewed for Audiobook Obsession 🎧

The wrong words spoken by one, an already wounded damaged soul overhears and a budding relationship between three go’s awry in this angst filled, but sweet love story. Have no fear, because we do happily get an HEA.
Isabella Starr is the narrator.
