Review - Unsuitable by Samantha Towle

From New York Times bestselling author, Samantha Towle, comes a new sexy, romantic suspense standalone novel...

Daisy Smith has spent eighteen months of her life paying for a crime she didn’t commit. Now out of prison, she has only one focus—to get back custody of her younger brother, Jesse, who is deep in the foster care system. Desperate to rebuild her life and show the system that she is responsible enough to care for Jesse, she takes on the only job available to her—working as a maid at the Matis Estate.

On day one of her new job, Daisy meets Kastor Matis, the only son of the owners and her new boss. An enigmatic, handsome Greek god of a man, Kas is closed off, cold, and…well, kind of a bastard.

The more time Daisy spends around Kas, she starts to see there might be more to him than just his cold, bastard ways. He may actually have a heart beating in that frozen chest of his.

But Kas has secrets, too. Secrets that he’s determined to keep.

Secrets make Daisy curious.

And you know what curiosity can do…

My 5 Star Review

I adore Samantha Towle’s books, so naturally, I couldn’t wait to read Unsuitable. I didn’t even know what it was about, I just knew I had to read it regardless. I was so surprised by Unsuitable it wasn’t what I expected from Towle, but I LOVED IT!

Daisy is raising her brother Jesse, doing the best she can to take care of him and herself. The struggle is real for her, but it’s just the two of them now that her dad died and her addict mother abandoned them. Daisy will do anything to keep her family together and make sure Jesse has the best chance in life. All her hard work is thrown out the window when she is framed for a robbery and sent to prison.

Now at eighteen months later she has been released and is trying to piece back together her broken life. Her primary focus is getting her brother back and making sure he is okay. As someone with a sibling, I completely understood Daisy’s desire to take care of him. I understood how she would do anything to fix this for him. 

The first step is finding employment and that’s how she meets Kas. For my friends who love the sexy, dominating, asshole antiheroes this guy is for you. He isn’t easy to love. He is harsh, crass and secretive most of the time. Daisy may find him attractive, but she can barely keep up with his mood swings and spends her time trying to avoid pissing him off. So now she has to maintain employment with Kas, a guy who complicates her life for so many reasons and decide how to handle her developing feelings for him. 

I didn’t expect this type of read from Towle, but I legit loved it. I was hooked from the very beginning. I loved how Daisy was strong and determined, she is definitely a character to admire. While Kas may not be easy to love, you can’t help but be drawn to him and I desperately wanted to know his secrets. I loved how together they truly complimented each other, but mostly put the other first. 

There are moments of this story I predicted with the foreshadowing provided, but even having a slight clue I was still left breathless at times. I think this book is the perfect mix of sexy, heart, and even suspense. I absolutely recommend this read!!
