Review: Story of Us by Jody Holford

Story of Us (Love Unexpected, #3)


Declan James has been Brockton Point’s most ineligible bachelor––happy with his short-term relationships and focusing on his business. But now that his closest friends have found their happily-ever-afters, he can’t help but wonder what that might be like. And then Sophia Strombi shows up on his doorstep.

Sophia’s life is––well there’s no other word for it––a mess. She’s grateful to have some work at her brother’s best friend’s bar, and a place to stay. Since she’s working hard to get her life back on track, she’s desperately trying to ignore the fact her boss makes her heart pound in a good way. Wait––no. That’s not good at all.

Besides, she has a huge secret she’s keeping from everyone––one that’s a life-changer.


It is a sweet and sad kind of story and I enjoyed reading it a lot. Dec and Sophe are both great characters. Sophia is an independent and stubborn woman who doesn't like it when others tell her what to do. She had left home right after school and has been living on her own since then. It is something not acceptable in her family and that has caused her family to be disappointed in her. Now, she is back in her home town. Ready to pick up the pieces of her life but also scared of how her family will take her return.

Declan has known Sophia's family all his life. He knows that they are conservative and can be overbearing at times. He is best friends with her brother so when she shows up at his bar he is a little taken aback. On one hand he doesn't want to lose Marcus as a friend and on the other hand, he sees that Sophia needs him more. She brings out his protective side and soon things get more complicated and more dramatic.

It's well-written, has an interesting storyline, it's quite romantic too, all in all, a great read if you are looking for a good contemporary romance fiction to read.

P.S. I received a complimentary copy of this book via NetGalley.
