Unsuitable surprised me in the best way possible. Such an enjoyable, different read that gave me so many aspects that I simply did not expect. It's a Contemporary, Sexy and Suspenseful Romance about love, loss and so much more.
After spending time in prison for a crime she had nothing to do with, newly released Daisy Smith is keen to get her life back on track and, most importantly, she wants to gain custody of her younger brother. To achieve her goal, she begins working as a maid at the Matis Estate where she meets her boss and the hero of this story, Kastor Matis. Both protagonists have an engaging history. Daisy's is clearly depicted from the very beginning, via her first person narrative, allowing readers to warm to her character and sympathise with her predicament. Enigmatic Kas and all his secrets are unveiled to the reader at a slower pace as the story layers are peeled away showing his complexities and motivation comprehensively. His past made my heart ache for all that he has endured and totally engaged my attention. I don't wish to impart any more story details than I have already as the pieces of UNSUITABLE need to be put together by the reader as they come to light so the reader can experience the full impact of this story.
By half way through I was convinced UNSUITABLE was going to be a 4 star read for my tastes, it's a little wordy in places and I felt a small amount of repetition in words and sentences, things that generally can pull me out of my story bubble but at around 55% all of my picky thoughts faded into insignificance because the story brilliantly picked up pace and characterisation. I was gripped to the action and I felt for the protagonists, I found it exciting and the suspenseful element had me thinking. And of course, I fell for the sexy broken hero. This slow burn contemporary ROMANCE picked up pace at exactly the right moment and gave me a story arc I truly appreciated with development, intrigue, romance and the unexpected. I totally rooted for this couple as I raced to the finish line of this story and thoroughly recommend to readers who enjoy novels of this ilk.

Expand text… 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…
