About One Unexpected Adventure:

A stress-free, last-minute, long overdue vacation in Iceland—that’s all Ava Espinosa wanted. To get exactly that, she did what she did best and planned every detail down to the minute it would take her to walk from the hotel to her dinner reservations each night. The trip was just what she needed to reignite that spark missing from her life before taking her new promotion.


Brooks Jónsson doesn’t give a crap about itineraries. He’s a search and rescue pilot, not a tour guide, but his dad is counting on him to help him with his business until he recovers from surgery. Naturally, he’d get stuck with a tourist carrying a three-inch binder containing her travel plan when he needed to focus on pinpointing whatever was affecting his hometown’s fishing trade and crushing their economy.

From not apologizing when he almost runs her over to spoiling her down-to-the-minute schedule with his tardiness, Brooks isn’t shy about his contempt for Ava. What he isn’t expecting is Ava giving that attitude right back to him. Every time she opens her sassy mouth, he forgets all the reasons why they’re all wrong for each other, and can only think of silencing that smart mouth of hers with a kiss.


When Ava catches wind about the mystery affecting the town’s marine ecosystem, she offers her expertise. Although the town is desperate for help, Brooks doesn’t trust outsiders. But Ava isn’t so easily deterred. With the rest of the townspeople accepting her into their fold, he struggles to hold on to his go-it-alone way of dealing with problems. As they reexamine how they’ve lost sight of what matters, Ava and Brooks learn that opposites attract. With happily ever after on their horizon, their past choices emerge, threatening to tear them apart.
