Not Planning on You is a contemporary romance novel by Sydney Landon. It’s the second book in the Danvers series which spans at least 7 books to date plus a novella or two that feature stories on smaller sub-characters.

Suzy Denton thought she had it all: a great job as an event planner for Danvers International and a committed relationship to her high school sweetheart….

But now her life has gone to hell in a handbasket. Not only did she discover her fiancé cheating, but a recent corporate merger is making her job very difficult—mostly due to Grayson Merimon, wealthy CEO. Gray is a man who goes after what he wants. And, after their first meeting, he wants Suzy.

Even though he looks like every fantasy she’s ever had, Suzy is wary of the powerful businessman. She likes her newfound independence, even if her best friend thinks it’s an excuse not to risk her heart again. Besides, she doesn’t think Gray could ever be interested in a relationship with someone like her. When he calls her bluff, Suzy agrees to one night together.

But when circumstances continue to throw them together—and with Gray determined to show her that two opposites can be a perfect fit—Suzy realizes that she might just have found the one man who can give her what she’s always needed….

The second I read the first book in the series, I knew I had to get my hands n this one. Suzy Denton is a spunky, over the top character, that really stands out in the entire Danvers series.

The problem with a lot of romance series is you often times get the same story in each new book with just new characters. The stories are so interchangeable it’s hard to remember one from the next.

That’s not the case with the Danvers series. The characters are all truly unique. They really do stand out from one another and blend in so well together.

This book also introduces you to Suzy’s sister which will star in the third book in the Danvers series. Her sister doesn’t quite hold water to Suzy but more on that in my next review. As far as Suzy goes, she’s without a doubt the most unique character in the entire series. She stands out for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is her over the top, take no prisoners personality.
