Publisher's Summary

Caroline Parker knows three things to be true. First, she is going to be Boston's most sought-after divorce attorney by 35. Second, given how terrible her romantic track record is, falling in love isn't in the cards for her. And third, Christmas only brings her bad luck - being broken up with not once, not twice, but three times during the holidays is proof enough of that.

When she runs into Hannah Dalton on Christmas Eve, she has no reason to believe her luck will change. After all, though Hannah is probably the most gorgeous woman she's ever seen, she's also straight. And married to Caroline's work rival.

While being hired by Hannah throws her for a loop, winning a divorce case and sticking it to her ex-colleague should be enough of a thrill. But as the months slip by, bringing her closer to both Hannah and her adorable daughter Abbie, the lines between attorney and client begin to blur. And she could have never predicted just how much she wants them to.

Contains mature themes.

Loved it!

I am always looking for new authors to love reading and listening to. This is a great story and I will definitely be listening to it again. Lori Prince is my favorite narrator, she brings each character to life in their own way.

Excellent and Yummy!

I loved everything about it. Perfect amount of, well, delicious sexual tension. I'm a big fan of Haley Cass's writing... 'When You Least Expect It' delivers a solid plot throughout the story, interesting and thorough character development (main and sub characters), and, again, realistic yummy tension. I'd spend money on her books blindly any day - reading reviews or even story description not necessary for me! She'll give us a great story every time.

I couldn't live this author more!

Haley Cass is my new favorite author. Everything about her stories are perfect. I laugh. I cry.
Please, always use Lori Prince to narrate! The combination is Audible gold!

A fitting title for my thoughts on the book

I think I preordered this audible half asleep after a long time of aimlessly scrolling for books to discover. I didn’t remember preordering it, and was confused when I got the notification on my phone that my preorder was ready. Looking at the cover art and reading over the description, I didn’t think I would have chosen this title. It seemed so over done and blah. I hadn’t read anything previously from the author and was honestly on the fence about the narrator after two other titles. But boredom hit and I decided to try giving it a listen. I’m glad I did.

There’s something to be said about a book that takes the mundane, the overdone cliches, the things I’m not really interested it (like the holidays, kids, and etc.), and pleasantly surprises me. To take these things and write them so well, to give depth to the characters and have a plot that has its ups and downs without being overdone is refreshing.

Yes, obviously there were some predictable moments but the way they developed - I couldn’t help but smile here and there. It felt real. And to have a supporting character that was a child and key element but not being annoying - wow.

The narrator brought just as much depth and feeing into the story as the story itself. I’m not sure if I had been reading an actual book that I would have that rhythm and read the punctuations with the right effects. The pacing was perfect. The narrator definitely won me over with this listen.

It’s a cute story, that touches upon some difficult topics without being too much or too light - just balanced. It’s heartwarming really, and I feel like a sap admitting that.

It’s not overly sexual. There’s build up and progression that isn’t rushed. It just flows naturally, which seems to increasingly rare in books these days.

I wouldn’t have thought I would like the audible this much, especially enough to finish it in a day.

The ending though...

It felt perfectly right and yet I kind of wish there was an epilogue or a second book.

Suffice it to say, I’m glad I bought this preorder half awake, forgotten about it (so I couldn’t cancel it), and then have it a try. Like I said, the book’s title is very fitting for my thoughts on the book.

Haley Cass and Lori Prince are a great match

This is my second go around with this story, first time on audio. I definitely think Lori Prince is a perfect fit for this story (as well as Haley Cass’ other work) and she did a great job bringing the characters to life. Loved the slow burn romance between Caroline and Hannah and enjoyed the scenes with Hannah’s daughter Abby as well. Highly recommend.

Loved it!

I was very excited to see an audio version of this book was going to be released, and with Lori Prince narrating. Lori did such a great job with Haley Cass’s “Those Who Wait,” I figured she’d be a good fit for this book as well. (Spoiler: She totally is.) I first read “When You Least Expect It” pretty much the day it was released and liked it a lot. I’m a sucker for ‘found family’ stories. It’s a premise that unfolds beautifully and sweetly here between Hannah, Caroline and Abbie. This book is a bit of a different animal from Haley Cass’s debut novel in that it’s a novella, so the rich character development of both main characters that makes TWW such a meaty experience is somewhat lacking. But I still found it a fun, sweet and sexy new release from an author who has fast proven herself to be a refreshing addition to the lesfic scene. And now the audiobook is one I’ll happily listen to again!

Story Writing Excellence

Cass writes a great story that provides all the good elements of a story line and avoiding the much used cliche tropes which keeps the spirit of the story clean, clear and refreshing. Thank you.

The anticipation is killer!!!

The build up between these well developed characters makes the whole story. You know it will end happily ever after but it still keeps you on edge.
