Double Review- Unsurprisingly Complicated (Unexpected #2) && Uncharted (Unexpected #3) by Claudia Burgoa

Title:  Unsurprisingly Complicated (Unexpected #2)  
Author:  Claudia Burgoa
Publication Date: April 30th 2015
Plot:   AJ 

The lies between my parents and I came to light and now I’m working on a new life for myself. Along the way, I have my trusty superhero, Mason, to lean on when I have a hard time standing or when my crazy ex-boyfriend continues to feel he has a claim on me.
Porter has trouble understanding that there hasn’t been an ‘us’ for more than three years plus all the issues he had brought upon himself. My father was right, drugs do kill. My other concern is the growing feelings I am having regarding Mason. There’s something between us I want to explore but I keep getting mixed signals. Here, I thought that after telling my parents about my lies and having their full support, things wouldn’t be as complicated as they are.


My parents divorced before I even made my entrance into this world. My father has been obsessed with that love for years while my mother searches for love in all the wrong places. I don’t want a place to call home or a girl I can claim as mine. Except… Ainsley Janine –better known as ‘Nine’—has some special power that makes me question my preferences. The more I try to stay away from her, the more she pulls me closer.
Exploring the possibilities of having something steady in my life isn’t a problem; it’s the long term that worries me. In addition to that, the scumbag she dated years ago keeps popping up everywhere we go. If I could use my license to kill, maybe I can stop worrying about one thing and concentrate on what to do with the green eyed girl who keeps me awake most nights.

 My Review 

☆ I received an RC via the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!! ☆

For an up and coming author, Claudia Burgoa is definitely a rare talent wading to break out at the seams.

After finishing bk1, I had been waiting to see what would be in the future of both AJ and Mason.

Nonsurprisingly, in eloquent fashion, the threads to their history and subsequent romance are as intricate and complicated as ever.

I had a wide range of thoughts and reactions while going into and reading this throughout. It was just that unique perplex. One minute I was content and relaxed, and then the next, I was either raging or pent up with unbridled feelings and emotions.

Everyone has pasts and hardships. But what's even harder is to let go and open yourself up to life again and to take risks and chances within it.

Unsurprisingly Complicated 'unsurprisingly' definitely lives us to the book title as it was cuts into the unforeseen twists, turns, and obscurities that each of us has to face and what paths we can choose to take.

A powerful and beautifully written second installment of the "Unexpected" series!!

Title:  Uncharted (Unexpected #3)
Author:  Claudia Burgoa 
Publication Date: July 21st 2015
Plot:   Jacob

As a rule, men don’t grow up believing in a happily ever after. We don’t believe in meeting the love of our lives; or the white picket fence, and 2.5 children. Every man thinks that those stupid dreams or fantasies are just nonexistent shit until it happens to them. We should have been forewarned. 

I wish I was prepared for someone to appear in my life and change all my priorities. I suddenly wanted that fence and children. The part of meeting the love of my life became very real, but I wasn’t ready for suddenly losing it all, and my life plummeting into this shithole forever.

The heartbreak of losing your soulmate is one of the worst pains you will ever live with. I should campaign and warn the young people. Vaccinate against love because if you lose it, you could lose yourself for the rest of your life. The burden on your back will forever mark you and wither away your soul, darkening your days and the rest of your natural life. 

This isn’t false advertisement or a dramatic display of one bitter soul.


I fought by my mother's side until her last breath, and tried to help my father until his last memories dissipated. My sister is the last one standing, but her life is a miracle that can end at any given moment. All my life I’ve never been alone, but always felt lonely.

Today, my options on how to live my life are endless, yet my heart and my best friend limit them. Stay in Seattle, close to the one person that will never let me inside his world.

The thug, as mom would've called him. A man with a bad boy attitude and a heart bigger than the ocean.

 My Review 

☆ I received an RC via the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!! ☆

I'll be the first to say, that before you go into this book, it would be best to get the full experience and 411 of all the characters by reading from bk1.

That all said, Uncharted pretty much indicated what was yet to come in this series. Traveling into uncharted waters in life and with these characters.

No one truly knows what's in store for them, as everyday and time is a learning process of trial and tribulation, and this read captured it completely.

With the two main leads, Jason and Pria, being so young and quite inexperienced to life and love, it was a fulfilling journey although even if it was at times tough.

I really felt in synch with all of the characters, their plights and their emotions.

Definitely, a recommended read for all!!

 About the Author 

Born on the mystical day of October 30th in the not so mystical lands of Mexico City, Claudia grew up with a childhood that resembled a caffeine-injected soap opera. Seventeen years ago she ventured to the lands of her techie husband—a.k.a. the U.S.—with their offspring to start a new adventure.

She now lives in Colorado working as a CFO for a small IT company, managing her household filled with three confused dogs, said nerd husband, two daughters wrought with fandoms and a son who thinks he’s the boss of the house. To survive she works continually to find purpose for the voices flitting through her head, plus she consumes high quantities of chocolate to keep the last threads of sanity intact.
