    CuteCute story Kinda funny and sweet, not really a romcom,of a billionaire fast and extremely easy read The dialog wasn t horrible, the story and world building was light and uncomplicated, kind of bland but I was still able to finish it with out regretting wasting time.Overall not too bad, if you re looking for a simple book that won t pull your mind to far away then you will enjoy The Surprise.Good luck.

    Oh, thank goodness This book by Alice Ward was muchalong the lines of the first book of hers I read, The Cabin It was such a sweet romance I would go so far as to say that it was an insta luv story although I didn t add it to that shelf,because it was a gradual realization of that love Our hero and heroine meet unexpectedly one night at a bar and there is an instant connection It wasn t cheesy or eye roll inducing It was a spark and a noticeable one Scarlett and Langston are i Oh, thank goodness This book by Alice Ward was muchalong the lines of the first book of hers I read, The Cabin It was such a sweet romance I would go so far as to say that it was an insta luv story although I didn t add it to that shelf,because it was a gradual realization of that love Our hero and heroine meet unexpectedly one night at a bar and there is an instant connection It wasn t cheesy or eye roll inducing It was a spark and a noticeable one Scarlett and Langston are instantly drawn to each other, which leads to what is supposed to just be a one night stand but they both wantbut alas, circumstances arise that keeps our couple apart Plus that ONS ends with an unexpected surprise I really liked this book and I think Ward is a pretty decent writer Some self published authors seem OTT and jumping from here to there in their writing but I feel that Ward is pretty consistent However, I suppose there is quite a bit of OTT with money and family but it is in such a sweet way that it didn t bother me It was such a fun read I tried to stay up late to finish it but it was almost midnight and I just couldn t Some very good tropes in this one view spoiler a pregnancy with twins I loved this secret baby child only because Langston left for Doctors Beyond Borders and Scarlett never saw the note he left for her to call him, which included his real name They gave fake names in the beginning super rich hero hide spoiler Loved this story and I hope my next read by Ward is as enjoyable as this one and The Cabin and less like The Hunt, which you can see my review of that book here will pick up another book from her
