Ben Miller met the love of his life the day he crossed paths with Elle James in their high school cafeteria. New to Beaumont, he took a chance when he approached her. Their first encounter was everything his mother ever read to him about fairy tales. He saw the girl who would be his forever.
From the moment Elle James met Ben Miller they’ve been best friends. Everything they did, they did it together, from late night study sessions, family vacations, throwing bottles off the water tower, going to prom and finally moving to California for college.
However, after the almost tragic accident where she nearly lost her twin sister, Elle’s life hasn’t been the same, and neither has her relationship with Ben.
One fateful decision changes the scope of Ben and Elle’s relationship. For one, it means a new beginning. For the other, it means change.

My Unexpected Forever by Heidi McLaughlin packed the same emotional punch that she's known for. Although you don't have to read the previous book in the series, it does provide some necessary backstory and I'd recommend reading it as well. Elle and Peyton are twins, and the events of book 1 affected Elle in ways no one imagined. She's a bit off the rails for part of the book, with the only person able to calm her down being her best friend, Ben.

This was definitely more of a slow burn type of story, with friends becoming lovers in a way that is unconventional and surprises them both. We had to watch the two try and fumble through a new relationship, and I was really concerned that they wouldn't make it. This was a story of two people trying to figure out if they could be stronger together or whether they needed to part ways, but sometimes you have to tear stuff down to rebuild something stronger.

Originally from the Pacific Northwest, she now lives in picturesque Vermont, with her husband and two daughters. Also renting space in their home is an over-hyper Beagle/Jack Russell, Buttercup and a Highland West/Mini Schnauzer, JiLL and her brother, Racicot.
When she's isn't writing one of the many stories planned for release, you'll find her sitting court-side during either daughter's basketball games.
Heidi's first novel, Forever My Girl, will be in theaters on October 27, 2017, starring Alex Roe and Jessica Rothe.
