This series is one of those that you hope never ends. While the characters are reappearing, as a whole the plots give individual stories. This is book eleven in the series, but could easily be read as a stand alone as Ms. Monroe takes the time to enter enough details of previous events so that you do not become confused. I came upon this series at the half way mark and have been trying to catch up. I have yet to find any of the books to be boring or a rehash of another. Melody Snow Monroe has constructed characters that are multidimensional. If you are looking for a sweet teenage type romance this is not the series for you. But if you like to make your heart race and your temperature rise for spicy love scenes then pick up your copy of Unexpected Pleasure. Be warned, it packs quite a punch. You will be left craving more and lucky for you, there is more to be had. I loved this installment of the Pleasure, Montana series and hope for many more.
