Title: Unlike Any Other
Series: Unexpected Book 1
Author: Claudia Burgoa
The name AJ Colthurst may not have any meaning to the public eye, but it should, as I’m the daughter of two famous celebrities. Like any superstar, they crave privacy; so much of it, they built a house in the middle of nowhere for us children. As we grew older, we discovered the lies they built as a fort to protect us from the media, ended up causing emotional damage along the way.
I carry a portion of the guilt on my shoulders; the other part I discovered is the separation of my parents. Their unorthodox ways may have driven me bonkers, but knowing they are no longer together is unacceptable.
That’s why I decided to rattle their cage by reminding at least one of my parents of the past and the reason they belong together. They need to remember why their love is so perfect and why they have to fight to keep it alive. Even if it means I have to dredge up some of my own painful memories along the way.
Back in the early eighties, I set myself to succeed in the financial world. The first step had been moving to New York City to become a stockbroker, but things didn’t work out the way I had hoped. Instead, I ended up making movies and by the end of the decade, Gabe Colt had become a famous name. The downside to my career of choice: the paparazzi. In order to protect my family and our privacy, I maintained my family away from the circus. It had been for their own good; a decision we had made before we started our family.
However, those past decisions ended up chasing my entire family away and now I’m trying to put the pieces back together along with my little girl.
Note: This book may contain high levels of testosterone. A Hot Actor, Hot musicians and A Hottie who believes he’s a hero.
Thoughts: AJ and Gabe both have been struggling to come to terms with different aspects of their lives but can they learn to trust each other again? This story shows that you can’t help who you love or who your family is. Though this story had a lot of heart to it and the characters were well defined it didn’t draw me in like I would have liked. It wasn’t a gripping story that had me glued to my seat looking to see what was coming next. I felt for the characters and pulled for them what the need to find out what was next just wasn’t there. I will read the next book in the series to see what is in store for the characters because I do like the writing style of the author and how she brings the characters to life.
