My niche in life is being an asshole. It suits me. I’m that guy who jokes about love and how settling down is overrated. Why would a guy ever fall for one woman when you can have as many as you want? Makes no sense to me.
But if being a cop has taught me anything, it’s that life is unpredictable. And that is exactly what Katherine is. The woman makes me question my sanity on a daily basis. Sometimes she makes me want to keep her to myself; other times, she makes me want to jump off a cliff just to get away from her.
Yet I still find myself turning into that little pussy I said I’d never be. Showing up on her front door holding flowers, only to have her throw them at me. Calling just to say hello, only for her to press ignore. Yeah, I’ve become a pussy all right. A whipped one at that. At first she was a challenge, but now I don’t like the fact that she is playing hard to get. But when someone comes after me, threatens my job, my life. It’s her that stands by my side. It’s her who has to pay for my sins. And it’s her who I’m threatened to lose. One thing that you need to know about me is that I'll fight for what I believe in. And I believe in her more than myself.
What’s that saying? Boy meets girl and the rest is history…Well, those who fuck with what is mine, will become history.

My Review of Unpredictable
Literally just finished reading Unpredictable and I have tears in my eyes. This story has so much emotion in it that I don’t think I would have been able to read it in one sitting. I’m grateful that I took breaks because of the obstacles and emotions the characters go through.
“Smile,” he says with a soft smile of his own “You’re beautiful.”
Parker is a cop and as a cop he sees the ugly in the world EVERY DAY. On one particular day, a day he wasn’t even supposed to be on duty he arrives at a horrific scene that pretty much touches his core as a human being. Not only does his morning start off with tragedy, but it also continues with a call about domestic violence. This domestic violence call brings him to the doorsteps of Katherine, who has gone crazy on her ex-boyfriend over a truck. Long story short, the two of them meet and sparks do not fly. Matter of fact they can’t stand each other.
Well so you think…
Parker is the type of guy that doesn’t believe in love and he is down for just being single and having casual encounters, while his friends all live in that ball and chain life…relationships and marriage. Never settling down is something Parker doesn’t want any part of, until he is reunited with Katherine once again.
“The only thing I can give you that you can’t give yourself is me.”
Katherine has a lot going on in her life. She’s a nurse so she also has witnessed the ugly that comes with the job. She doesn’t take crap from anyone, she doesn’t sugar coat anything, and she says what’s on her mind and she is never sorry for it. Some people can love this about her and others may think she is just plain crazy. However, Katherine doesn’t need anyone, but herself therefore she could give to craps about what people think of her. Not even Parker. Well so she thought…
“I see you, Kat. Is ee you clear as day and just like the sun, you blind me with how beautiful you are.”
You know right off the bat that these two are meant for each other, but just can’t seem to see it themselves.
The story deals with a lot of real life situations, situations that most people if not all can deal with in one shape or form. I believe that is why the story is so emotional. It hits home for me in more ways than one. And when I say emotional I’m not only speaking of the tears and heartbreak, but the laughter and fun situations that were also intertwined into the story for some much needed comic relief.
I hope that there will be a sequel to this story because I feel like with the BIG TWIST at the end that things just aren’t over yet for Parker and Katherine and not in the good way, that a lot more obstacles have to be dealt with before they can truly be happy together. No real cliffhanger in the end, but at the same time leaves you feeling like there needs to be and has to be more to their story.
I sit at the wedding party table and watch the lovely couple smile at one another as they eat their cake. It’s sickening.
I can’t get my mind off the beautiful yet bitchy woman sitting next to me. She is having a much easier time ignoring me. But she did admit earlier that she was a good faker. I try to get up the courage to speak to her by taking another drink of my wine. I don’t need the liquid courage to actual speak to her; I need it to keep me calm from being a dick, which is what I do so well. I really don’t want her to kick me in the balls like she said she would.
“Would you like to talk about what happened that day?” I ask her politely.
She looks up from her cake and stares at me as if I have two heads. “Not to you.”
“Maybe I can help you,” I offer. “I am a police officer,” I remind her as if I wasn’t the one who threw her down in her front yard and handcuffed her. “Does that type of thing happen often with you and your boyfriend?” Maybe they like to fight. Maybe it’s like their foreplay. Believe me, I have seen some crazy shit.
She places her fork on the white tablecloth and leans over to whisper, “I told you once and I’ll tell you again. Drop it. What happened was none of your business.”
I reach out to softly rub her arm, and I feel it break out in goosebumps. “Does he hurt you?” I ask looking deep into her eyes. I’m being a total ass, and she knows it.
She jerks her arm away from me. “I had just got home that morning and was in a bad fucking mood,” she growls.
Just gotten home? It was like seven in the morning. “What in the hell were you doing just getting home?” I demand. “Especially the way you were dressed.” I smile as I let the dickness come out. “Been out hooking all night? And your man got tired of having to share you?” The memory of her telling me that she wanted to fuck her man’s best friend is still fresh in my mind. And what a thought that is.
I hear Samantha gasp as I watch Katherine’s eyes narrow on me. She reaches over to the table, and the next thing I know, she’s shoving her cake into my face. “Vas te faire encule salaud,” she hisses in my ear before I feel a cold liquid land in my lap. I can literally hear my cock sizzle as if she just put out a fire. Holy fuck, did she cuss at me in French? I think I just came.
