Unexpected Legacy by Darlene Deluca

Posted: May 24, 2014 in Uncategorized


Netgalley gave me this book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

Matt Dalton thought that he had everything figured out until he was told that he not only had a teenage son that he had fathered when he was a teenager, but that his son had been in a horrible car accident. Matt didn’t know what to expect when he took his son in to live with him so he could have the best possible education and the chance to start over, but he wasn’t upset when he met Kate Austen (who I think has the same name as a character on Lost). However, no matter what he does, Kate doesn’t want to be more than friends. Matt however is determined to find a way into her heart.

For some reason this book was in the YA part of the Netgalley section which is why I requested it. It shouldn’t have been there since even though Brady does have a few PoVs, it is anything but YA. However, I don’t mind that I requested it. I found it to be a nice change from what I usually read. It kind of reminded me of the romance novels I read a lot of when I was in college.

The romance in this novel is very sweet. Even though it is probably the main plot of the novel, Matt’s main focus is his son. Even though he has just become a father he is determined to be a good one and that I liked about him. I also liked Kate but not quite as much at Matt. She was very determined to do whatever it took to keep her position in the school and she was worried that she might do something to ruin it. The minor characters of this novel also seemed very real and were compelling.

I didn’t see any grammar mistakes and everything seemed to flow nicely. It was a very fun book that was hard to put down. I don’t usually read as much on my days off but I couldn’t help but read this book late into the night. I wanted to know what was going to happen.

Overall I would give this book four out of five.
