REVIEW – 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…

Daisy Smith grew up in London & didn’t have much opportunity in life. Her mother leaves Daisy & her brother Jesse when Daisy is only sixteen. Daisy raises her little brother alone trying to avoid foster care. She adores Jesse & thinks of him as her child. When she makes the mistake of trusting the wrong person it costs her her freedom & her brother. Daisy is arrested & spends eighteen months in prison for a crime she didn’t commit. She is released early on parole & is ready to get her life back, & that includes the only person who has ever truly mattered to her, her brother Jesse. Jesse is now in the system, & Daisy’s main goal is to get back custody of him.

Daisy’s probation officer informs her he’s lined up a job for her working at the Matis Estate as a maid. It’s a big estate in Surrey that is a stable business. She is looking for a fresh start & happy to have a stable job. On her first day, she meets her gorgeous, Greek god of a boss. His name is Kastor Matis, & he runs the estate while his parents are in Greece. Daisy quickly labels him Kas-hole because he’s such a moody jerk. She never knows what she’s going to get with Mr. Matis. He’s always got this brooding, intense scowl on his face, & Daisy can’t figure him out. She just tries to do her job & stay out of his way.

Even though Kas is a bastard half the time, Daisy still can’t help lusting after her boss. He’s absolutely stunning to look at. All the constant clashing they do has built up more sexual tension between them, & eventually it explodes. They want each other desperately, but Kas keeps pulling away. He’s mysterious & turns so hot & cold with Daisy she can’t figure him out. He can be closed off one minute & then kind & warm the next.

There is so much Daisy doesn’t know about Kas. He has so many secrets & parts of his past that have left him broken. He hadn’t let himself feel in over seven years, & he’s trying to make sense of his feelings for Daisy. She makes him want to live again, but he doesn’t think he’s good for her or deserves her.

I really loved this book! We get a sinfully hot, damaged, beautiful man, & a sexy story full of suspense & danger. We also get a fabulous story about love & healing. I couldn’t get enough of this book & flew through it. I hope we get a book for Jude next!!!

-He’s the hottest thing I’ve ever seen.

-He feels like nothing I’ve ever had before and everything I didn’t even know I wanted.

-All of him is against me, and even still, I don’t feel close enough. I want more of him. I want all of him.

-“I… care about you.”

– “I want you like you wouldn’t fucking believe.”

– This is what heaven feels like.

I really enjoyed this new book by Samantha Towle. Unsuitable was seductive, thrilling and totally unexpected.

“You wreck me.”


Daisy Smith has been in jail paying for a crime she didn’t commit, for the last eighteen months of her life. She’s lost everything after trusting the wrong people, her whole life has been destroyed after she was wrongly accused, and what hurts her the most is having lost the most important person in her life, her little brother Jesse.

She got sentenced to three years in prison, but after eighteen months she has been set free, with parole due to good behavior. Daisy is very focused on getting her brother, and her life back. She needs a suitable place to live and a job to start on the right path into getting Jesse back.

Her best friend and parole officer have set Daisy up with both a home and a new job as a maid at the beautiful Matis State. On her first day on the job, she meets her boss, a man with both extreme good looks and terrible attitude. Even days after starting the job, Daisy can’t escape her boss’s disdain, the man is impossible.

Kastor Matis is of Greek decent, gorgeous, rich, fit and always grouchy. After a few interactions with Kas, Daisy realizes that there’s more to him than what meets the eye. Her boss is quickly becoming a sweet obsession to her, and when he finally asks her out, she is more than ready to accept.

But Kas and Daisy aren’t simply a man and woman who like each other and want to date to get to know each other better. They both have complicated pasts, that have altered their lives and shaped their futures. Daisy can’t afford any complications while all she’s trying to do is get her brother back, and Kas doesn’t know how to love or trust anyone, needless to say, their story will be neither easy nor predictable.

This story is so much more than your typical sassy heroine, and hot alpha hero. There’s a lot of angst, and nothing I say can prepare you for the thrill of this Unsuitable couple’s story.

”What I feel for you is debilitating and terrifying and exhilarating…and the best thing to ever happen to me. And, if you only ever believe one thing I’ve told you, then believe this; if I could love someone, then it would be you, Daisy. A million times over, it would be you.”




Samantha Towle has gone out of her comfort zone withUNSUITABLE and I think she absolutely NAILED IT!!!! I’ve read a lot of her books and I can tell you this is nothing like her previous works. I had heard that she struggled with writing this book and all I can say is that she shouldn’t have worried whatsoever. The story held me captive from beginning to end! I looked at the length of the book and thought that it would take me days to finish but actually if I didn’t go on a mini vacation, I would have finished this in one day. The book is just that good!!!! Kudos to Ms. Towle!!!!!

Daisy Smith has just been released on parole, after having served eighteen months of her three-year prison sentence. Her ex-boyfriend and his brother framed her for a crime she didn’t commit. Imprisonment has cost her custody over her younger brother, Jesse and now her main focus is to get her life on track and to have her brother back under her guardianship. She is assigned a job as a maid for a wealthy businessman by her parole officer.

Kastor Matis is an extremely wealthy and successful businessman. These two do not get off to a great start, mostly because of Kastor’s belligerent attitude towards Daisy. Even though her new employer is a bit of a bully, Daisy can’t deny that the man is incredibly handsome and does things to her lady bits! Kas seems to be affected by Daisy as well, but he plays hot and cold with her so many times that it sets her mind into a tailspin.




When it seems that they are both finally on the same page as far as their feelings for each other go, outside influences and lies could end up tearing this couple apart. Daisy has been burnt by her last relationship and she’s not willing to let her feelings for any man get in the way of her plans to be reunited with her little brother.

The chemistry between this couple is seriously off the charts HOT!! And when you find out some things about Kas they will only make you fall harder for him!! I was a little bothered by the ending but overall this was one outstanding read!!! You will not be able to put this one down once you dive into it!!

UNSUITABLE is available now! Be sure to add this to your TBRs if you haven’t read it yet.
