My Review

Unlikely in Love by Ashlie Knapp was just about the sweetest, feel good contemporary romance that I have read in a while. It had such great world building that I could picture myself walking through every place in  the tiny town of Parker Oklahoma. I really enjoyed how descriptive the author was with each scene, it really showed how much she cares about the book and everyone and everything in it.


Annabelle Cleaver was sweet and caring. She always puts other before herself and never judges a person by whats on the outside. After her only living family , her granny , passes away she struggles to fill the void left in her heart. Wyatt Holloway has seen three tours in the Middle East as a soldier bringing back physical and personal damage. He has grown up and matured since being the punk jock that Annabelle went to highschool with. He struggles with PTSD and finding peace in his new normal since coming home. Together they find a way to heal each other and move on with life.

I few other things I loved about the story was all the references to some of my favorite things, it’s like the author made these characters for me lol for real I want to be thier friend. From the Disney named animals on the farm to the love for Seinfeld and Parks & Recreation, plus I am totally on her side with loving Chris Pratt as Andy Dwyer over Star Lord.

I also adored Annabelle’s friends Colleen and Breckin, and Wyatt’s friend Griffin! I hope they each get thier Happily Ever After in the other books in the series . Which I will be definatly be reading in the future !!

4/5 stars
