    7. ★★★★ 4 Stars ★★★★ This was a tale told in two parts, a second chance love story which began one summer at college when two people from very different backgrounds came together for a summer of fun. What they weren't expecting was to fall in love so quickly. Miscommunication and circumstance lead to an epic break up that keeps them apart for 12 long years.

    9. What a Fabulous debut for Riann C. Miller! Angst is Flowing! Passion is heated! Unlikely Love is an NA gem.A Woman with a less than stellar upbringing…a Man with a fancy lifestyle of pleasure…on a literal collision course with one another. Nikole Castro has no desire to fall for Adam Lane’s antics…but desire…attraction…passioney seem inevitable.I loved this story of two souls, while socioeconomically diverse, they were living such similar lives as everything seemed dictated by others [...]

    11. Kole’s life hasn’t been a walk in the park, but she has been determined to rising above and making something of her life. Kole is a fantastic character. I am huge fan of people/characters who don’t make excuses for their past, but find ways to rise above. When we meet Kole she is in college and working at a coffee shop. That’s where she meets Adam.Adam not so admirable. Yeah, he is your typical wealthy college student. He isn’t overly friendly or nice, he is just a self-centered guy lo [...]

    12. Unfortunately Adam ruined this for me. He's a childish, self absorbed jerk that had no character growth whatsoever. At 92% he was still acting like an idiot, by that far into a book I want to love the hero as much as the heroine, not rooting for the heroine to walk away and keep walking!

    14. 2.5 StarsOverall Opinion: I would say it was a little less than "just ok". It definitely has some major instalove going on (view spoiler)[ they're exchanging "I love yous" and he proposes marriage at 33%(hide spoiler)]. I am a sucker for second chance romances especially when there is a significant time jump, but as I said -- I was underwhelmed. I couldn't get past the instalove.This is one of those hard books to review without giving too much away, but if you're like me and need the spoiler I'l [...]

    15. An emotional, heartbreaking love story of two individuals who were wronged in the worst kind of way, only to find out years later how they were robbed of their happiness! Nikole and Adam came from two different worlds, Adam having everything he's ever wanted and Nikole always working to have what she needed. When Adam runs into Nikole she sparks an interest in him that he's never felt before with anyone else, so he goes after her. Nikole knows Adam’s type—charming girls out of their panties [...]

    16. If I had to headline this book like requires, I'd probably go with sometime like 'Communication is key' or 'Assuming makes an ass out of you and me'. This was a stellar debut novel by a brilliant new writer. I'm astounded by the clear and perfectly flowing nature of this book. While this book spanned over a decade in two separate parts, I didn't feel the disconnect I often find in books that do this. This book was wonderful and was a book that once I started it, I didn't put it down until I rea [...]

    17. enjoyed this debut novel quite a bit. first half is based on our couple aged 18 and 22, both in college. it's basically how/when they meet, fall into some serious insta-love and sadly are ripped apart because of reasons. one thing o do want to say is in books bad communication or not speaking up is one major turn off with book couples breaking up mindlessly but alas here it was angsty so i kept on reading.) second half of the book was way better, it's a time jump 12 years on. both our hero and h [...]

    18. I really enjoyed Reading Unlikely Love. It’s the story about a girl, Kole, with shit luck in parents, and a guy, Adam, who apparently had it all but until the time he crashed into her life, he led an empty life. Coming from completely different worlds, they clash in a whirlwind romance. But when outside forces begin to interfere, how strong will their love and trust for each other have to be? And when the evidence forces them to turn their backs and reject the love of their lives, will they be [...]

    19. ARC IN EXCHANGE OF A HONEST REVIEW - BLOG TOURYou can make a cliche boring, or you can make it captivating.This is one of those stories where you can guess what is going to happen, the plot is common and we are going to think it will be another cliche story. But in this one the author made an incredible job, with a refreshing storyline.Is surprisingly good. And I can't believe this is the debut of this author, I was connected so easily with this story And I felt everything something that is some [...]

    20. A Debut full of Sweet Love & Heart-Wrenching Moments which left my chest poundingThis is Riann C. Miller's debut release and I loved every bit of it. It is the story of Nikole (AKA Kole) & Adam. Their accidental run in at a coffee shop leads to an Unlikely Love full of Sweetness and absolutely gut-wrenching heartache. Will they get an HEA? The characters, Nikole an independent young woman who is starting a life on her own. Adam, a trust fund baby destined to take his father's place at th [...]

    21. Unpopular opinion here, beware!The bad thing about waiting a week to write a review after finishing a book is that I usually forget the plot, unless the story is fucking phenomenal (which this one wasn't, because I literally had no idea what this story was even about until I skimmed over some reviews). The one thing that really bothered me was the immaturity of the characters. No 18/20 year old I know talks this way - and I can really say that being one myself, and being surrounded by this demog [...]

    22. 3 starsA pretty decent read for me. Love how it started but most of the events happened so quickly. It was like chasing a train or something. At first, I did not understand the marriage part. In fact, I hated it. But I understood its part in the story and I have to say it was an impressive twist. That's all I can say about this book in my emotionless review. It is pretty good but found nothing special about it. Great job, Miss Miller! Looking forward to reading more of your books.

    23. Great story! The story of Nicole and Adam is a love story with a twist, are they or aren't they a good fit? You maybe changing your mind a few times as you read. The flow was easy and story is intriguing. A perfect weekend read!! Highly recommended!

    24. DNF @ 74% I'm sorry but when it comes to second chance romance, I would like it better if the hero / heroine had to actually work for it. This book isn't the case.

    25. Can't believe this is her first book! Loved everything, cried a few ugly tears but they were very happy ugly tears - so the good kind! This is a book you don't want to miss. Highly recommend!

    26. Unlikely Love didn't really do much for me, unfortunately. I think the H, Adam, ruined it for me. He was a completely self-absorbed asshole for most of the book. Even when he "changed" it seemed to be too fast, and forced. Wish I could go on, but there isn't much more to this book. It's rushed, has little character development, and I didn't feel as if the connection between Kole and Adam was very strong.Perhaps the next one, about Jet, Kole's half brother, will be better.

    27. *SPOILER ALERT*After her parents die in a car accident, Nicole McKenzie can't wait to escape her small hometown. The only fly in the ointment is finding out that the man she called dad isn't her biological father. Nonetheless, our ambitious heroine forges ahead with her plan's to make something of herself.Armed with a "full ride scholarship" to UCLA and a new job close to campus, everything seems to be falling into place.Enter hot (and wealthy) manwhore, Adam who is in town for the summer. Our t [...]

    28. Wow!!!! What an absolutely amazing debut novel! I'm pretty sure I am at a total loss for words after reading this one as it just completely blew away all of my expectations!Unlikely Love is an absolutely amazing story about second chances in life and second chances in love. Not only was this story smoking hot but it was unbelievably heart warming. The story starts with the female lead, Kole, trying to start fresh in life and making a successful life for herself after years of being neglected by [...]
