Blog Tour Review & Giveaway ~ Unpredictable by Shantel Tessier

Title: Unpredictable
Author: Shantel Tessier
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: April 6, 2015

My niche in life is being an asshole. It suits me. I’m that guy who jokes about love and how settling down is overrated. Why would a guy ever fall for one woman when you can have as many as you want? Makes no sense to me.

But if being a cop has taught me anything, it’s that life is unpredictable. And that is exactly what Katherine is. The woman makes me question my sanity on a daily basis. Sometimes she makes me want to keep her to myself; other times, she makes me want to jump off a cliff just to get away from her.

Yet I still find myself turning into that little pussy I said I’d never be. Showing up on her front door holding flowers, only to have her throw them at me. Calling just to say hello, only for her to press ignore. Yeah, I’ve become a pussy all right. A whipped one at that. At first she was a challenge, but now I don’t like the fact that she is playing hard to get. But when someone comes after me, threatens my job, my life. It’s her that stands by my side. It’s her who has to pay for my sins. And it’s her who I’m threatened to lose. One thing that you need to know about me is that I'll fight for what I believe in. And I believe in her more than myself.

What’s that saying? Boy meets girl and the rest is history…Well, those who fuck with what is mine, will become history.

I sit at the wedding party table and watch the lovely couple smile at one another as they eat their cake. It’s sickening. 

I can’t get my mind off the beautiful yet bitchy woman sitting next to me. She is having a much easier time ignoring me. But she did admit earlier that she was a good faker. I try to get up the courage to speak to her by taking another drink of my wine. I don’t need the liquid courage to actual speak to her; I need it to keep me calm from being a dick, which is what I do so well. I really don’t want her to kick me in the balls like she said she would. 

“Would you like to talk about what happened that day?” I ask her politely. 

She looks up from her cake and stares at me as if I have two heads. “Not to you.”

“Maybe I can help you,” I offer. “I am a police officer,” I remind her as if I wasn’t the one who threw her down in her front yard and handcuffed her. “Does that type of thing happen often with you and your boyfriend?” Maybe they like to fight. Maybe it’s like their foreplay. Believe me, I have seen some crazy shit. 

She places her fork on the white tablecloth and leans over to whisper, “I told you once and I’ll tell you again. Drop it. What happened was none of your business.” 

I reach out to softly rub her arm, and I feel it break out in goosebumps. “Does he hurt you?” I ask looking deep into her eyes. I’m being a total ass, and she knows it.

She jerks her arm away from me. “I had just got home that morning and was in a bad fucking mood,” she growls. 

Just gotten home? It was like seven in the morning. “What in the hell were you doing just getting home?” I demand. “Especially the way you were dressed.” I smile as I let the dickness come out. “Been out hooking all night? And your man got tired of having to share you?” The memory of her telling me that she wanted to fuck her man’s best friend is still fresh in my mind. And what a thought that is. 

I hear Samantha gasp as I watch Katherine’s eyes narrow on me. She reaches over to the table, and the next thing I know, she’s shoving her cake into my face. “Vas te faire encule salaud,” she hisses in my ear before I feel a cold liquid land in my lap. I can literally hear my cock sizzle as if she just put out a fire. Holy fuck, did she cuss at me in French? I think I just came.

Just leave, Parker.”
She's like trying to keep a cobra happy. You're gonna get bitten no matter what. “Why do you do this?” I ask, getting angry.
Because I don't need you to tell me what you feel. I don't need to tell you how I feel. I'm not that girl who needs a white knight to come and take all my problems away. Those problems are my life. I don't need a man in my life. And I certainly don't need you.”

Parker O'Hare has never had any interest in women for anything more than sex. Relationships are the last thing on his mind, even as he watches all of his best friends fall in love, marry off and start families. He refuses to let any women have any control over him... until he meets Katherine. Now he finds himself becoming the pussy-whipped bitch he swore never to be, he struggles between wanting to run as far from her crazy ass as he can and getting her into bed as soon as humanly possible. The biggest problem is-she wants nothing to do with his plans for her and slams the door in his face at every turn. Katherine learned at a young age that the only person she can truly rely on is herself and is incapable of letting anyone get too close to her. So imagine both of their surprises when Katherine is the one at Parker's side when he really needs someone, and it may just cost them everything.

Like the stalker I have become concerning her, I followed her. Pulling into a nursing home was the last place I thought we would end up at. I figured it was going to be a guy's house and I was gonna have to shoot him. I seriously had my gun loaded and ready. Have I mentioned that I've lost my mind? I have!

This is the first book I've read involving this wicked group of people, but it very much read like a stand-alone so I never once felt like I walked in halfway through a conversation. We get occasional flashbacks which helped to establish the relationships between Parker and his friends as well as gives us glimpses into what some of the prior couples went through. It's clear this group of friends have been to hell and back together and it's glued them to each other in a way nothing else could. All drama aside, this crew was frickin hilarious when they got together. Parker was like the giant kid always messing around and making light of any given situation, but there is no doubt he can be a real dick when he chooses to be-which is often. And Katherine has no problem throwing her crazy bitch around which made these two an explosively unpredictable pair. Anger runs high, tempers implode, frustration is ever present, and the chemistry was off-the-charts, it really was an interesting combination. You never knew what was gonna happen with them-they constantly danced on the line between screaming at each other or tearing their clothes off. And the sex?! Burn down the house, melt your panties off, talk dirty to me IN FRENCH-HOTT. I can honestly say there really isn't anything I could complain about. We got to spend equal amounts of time in each of their heads, drama and angst in abundance, PLEANTY of smokin hott sex, the pace was non-stop making it impossible to put down, the characters-all of them-were frickin amazing... I just LOVED this book. If Ms. Tessier wasn't already sitting on my Hott-Read One-Click-Addiction List after I read Dash, then this would have landed her there one blush and giggle at a time. CANNOT WAIT to see what she brings us next.

Why would you want me? I'm just a heartless fucking bitch.”
You have the biggest heart of anyone I know, Katherine. You just hide it really well.”
“I've always been good at hiding.”
“I see you, Kat. I see you clear as day and just like the sun, you blind me with how beautiful you are.”
