Unsuitable by Samantha Towle
From New York Times bestselling author, Samantha Towle, comes a new sexy, romantic suspense standalone novel…
Daisy Smith has spent eighteen months of her life paying for a crime she didn’t commit. Now out of prison, she has only one focus—to get back custody of her younger brother, Jesse, who is deep in the foster care system. Desperate to rebuild her life and show the system that she is responsible enough to care for Jesse, she takes on the only job available to her—working as a maid at the Matis Estate.
On day one of her new job, Daisy meets Kastor Matis, the only son of the owners and her new boss. An enigmatic, handsome Greek god of a man, Kas is closed off, cold, and…well, kind of a bastard.
The more time Daisy spends around Kas, she starts to see there might be more to him than just his cold, bastard ways. He may actually have a heart beating in that frozen chest of his.
But Kas has secrets, too. Secrets that he’s determined to keep.
Secrets make Daisy curious.
And you know what curiosity can do…

Unsuitable was my first book from Samantha Towle. Daisy is Serving 18 months for a crime she didn’t commit. The day she walks out a few woman the only concern she has it to get her brother out of foster care and back with her. To do this she has to get a job and be on her best behaviour. She has a long road ahead of her, but that’s all she cares about.
She gets a job from her parole officer cleaning Kastor’s house. From her first day working here her boss seems he has it in for her. He’s moody and Daisy is not sure if he hates her and just doesn’t care enough to have any feelings towards her.
I’m poor and a criminal; therefore, I’m beneath him. I’m beneath everyone. I’m branded for life. I was always poor. Now, I have the criminal tag to go with it. Well, aren’t I a perfect catch?
Kastor Matis is dark, moody man who spends his days either working out, in his office or making things hard for Daisy. He is so hot and cold with her from the start. He’s keeping secrets from her and he knows he should stay away from her but Daisy seems to be irresistible to him. Watching the push and pull between the two was a page turner.
However there where a few things that frustrated me with this book. One being the story is set in London, England but Samantha’s writing seemed to be very American. The American phrases with the British slang thrown in was very mixy matchy! She should have stuck with one of the other.
Secondary characters are a big thing for me and there was potential with Cece and Jude they just weren’t developed enough for this to be the case. The ending was my favourite and I also think the Epilogue could have been way better. These few things aside it was a good story and I did really enjoy it.
