The bonds of an Anderson bloodline are too strong to keep their family apart forever.
Richard Storm is saddened that his children are throwing away their lives, and offers them an ultimatum.

Review: NOTE: THIS REVIEW IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT. ISLAND LOVELIES AND Spreading The Word HAVE TEAMED UP TO DISCUSS OUR OPINIONS ON UNEXPECTED TREASURE. MAKE SURE YOU POP ON OVER AND LIKE HER PAGE!! (JUST CLICK SPREADING THE WORD ABOVE AND IT WILL TAKE YOU TO HER PAGE!)
Natalie - Wow wow wow, what another fantastic amazing wonderful book from melody, I loved it. Well what's not to love, who can complain about more Andersons, not me...
Alicia - Definitely not me!
Denise - Nor me!!!
Natalie - Although he isn't technically a Anderson he is a Storm, and whoa I wouldn't mind being in a storm with Crew. When I heard that Melody was planning on expanding the Anderson series I nearly peed my pants. I love these books from my favourite author. When I got my hands on it I couldn't put it down!
Alicia - I couldn't either! OK so Unexpected Treasure starts with Joseph and George Anderson, yep you know the ones, they're twins and they're the ultimate matchmakers!! They are the original Anderson's only now they have another family to add to theirs. Their unexpected family!
Denise - Yes Unexpected Treasure starts with George and Joseph discovering something strange in the newspaper, they discover they have a long lost missing brother whose name is Richard Storm.
Alicia - yes holy smokes from being twins to triplets in the space of a few seconds it takes to discover the picture of Richard. Talk about life changing. We all know how much family means to Joseph and George so there is no way we're not going to meet the new Anderson's.
Denise - We will be meeting them all throughout the Lost Anderson Series. Richard Storm has five children that he raised as a single father. He realises they're all spoilt and take things for granted so decides to teach them a lesson. They help a business that is struggling back into a profitable business or they lose their inheritance and get taken out of Richards will. He leaves his children with 5 files to fight over who would get which business.
Alicia - can you imagine that? You will loose everything and I mean everything if you don't make this run down business a success! Shocker! It seems a little mean but Richard is doing it with his children's best interests at heart. So in Unexpected Treasure we get Crew's story. Crew picked an exclusive resort in the Catalina Islands off the coast of California as his project and soon finds that renovating the resort is something he loves, makes him happy and proud. He gets fulfilment from seeing the end result of all his hard work.
Denise - Crew is the oldest Storm (Anderson) child and let's say he's every bit like the Anderson brother we know and love. He's charming and good looking.
Natalie - Crew, Crew he's my man if I can't get him no one can!!.... oh go on then I will share but only because I know Mel will bring another glorious man to us soon enough.
Alicia - Oh yes, let me tell you ladies something, Crew... Hmmm holy f*cking shit Crew. DELICIOUSNESS in a book! He is just amazing! He's a gentleman in the street and a hot freak in the sheets! He's also so bloody sweet that he will chain himself to your heart and stay there!
Natalie - When we first meet Haley she seems like butter wouldn't melt. Although we soon learn that the wonder that is Crew brings out the best on her.
Denise - Haley is a damaged soul and has been dealt a really shitty hand in life. She's spent her life invisible and wants to finally catch the eye of the man she thinks she wants. Her luck changes when she wins a two week stay in a luxurious resort.
Alicia - yep you got it, she's off to Catalina Islands. Not only is she off on an amazing holiday but she comes up with an idea to get the help she needs in capturing the heart of the man she wants. She needs Crew's help to make the the perfect Seductress. She wants Crew to be her teacher and she the pupil in order to make her dreams come true. Only the lessons can be life altering.
Natalie - I love how the relationship develops between the two. The story is so romantic and again as with all Mels books there is always a strong sense of family, amazing loyalty and the feeling you’re privileged to be a part of this new journey.
Alicia - I have to say, this book is beautiful. It's stunningly written with a side order of hotness. You will feel butterflies in your stomach at some of the romantic things Crew does and maybe even drool a little when it comes to Crew and bedsheets.
Denise - Melody Anne has got another hit under her belt. It's a must read for all the Anderson fans. These characters are easy to connect with on an emotional level.
Alicia - It is but it's also a must read to any reader who loves a good romance with a side of sex!
Natalie - I think that mel captures you into her book as she always has done, and yet again I find myself waiting on her next book
5 HUGE STARS!!!
“Do not chicken out!” she snarled under her breath before stepping from the shadows and making her way down the beautiful slate walkway. She’d parked around the corner, since the resort wasn’t open yet and management wasn’t allowing in cars, trying to prevent an early mob.
Though she should be trying to be a femme fatale at the moment, she was woefully underdressed in her loose linen blouse and jean capri pants. She’d been in school for the past three years, plus working part-time at a small stationary store and she never had the energy to dress up or worry about clothes. It had taken her five years of therapy to work up the courage to go to college in the first place, or she would have been finished with her education by now.
Though she’d received a large inheritance when she was nineteen, she hated using the money because her grandparents hadn’t wanted her to have it. They’d just never made a will, and because she was their only heir, the money had come to her. She was sure that if they’d taken the time to designate beneficiaries, they would have left it all to their precious birds rather than to her.
Still, there were times it was necessary for her to dip into her substantial funds. This was one of those times.
It was now or never.
“Are you lost?” Haley stopped the shiver fighting to travel down her spine from just the deep timbre of his voice. Oh yes, she had chosen well. This man could teach her all she wanted to know. He was sex personified.
“No. I’m looking for you, Mr. Storm.”
Nervous tension filled her as his gorgeous eyes gave her body the once-over. When they reached her face, she had the feeling that he’d checked her out and found her wanting.
She’d planned this down to the smallest detail, and she’d make him help her.
“And what can I do for you, miss?”
Oh, the promise in his tone was what women’s wet dreams were made of. She knew he spoke to every woman this way. She’d studied him, read about how effortlessly he flirted — how women fell at his feet. With one snap of his fingers, females young and old were panting, their salivary glands in overdrive.
“Haley Sutherland,” she said a little breathlessly as she stuck out her hand.
After a slight pause, he grasped her fingers and squeezed, then slowly lifted their entwined hands to his mouth and ran his lips across the top of her knuckles, his warm breath brushing over her skin.
“This!” Haley practically shouted as excitement filled her.
Crew’s normal cool seemed to be shaken; he stared at her in confusion. The expression on his face was almost comical as he stood frozen with his lips only a couple of inches from her skin.
“I want you to teach me how to seduce someone. I have been reading about you, studying the way you flirt, how you can have any woman you want. I want you to teach me how to get a man, how to make him want me so much that he can’t see straight, how to make him drop to his knees.”
“Ummm…are you drunk?” Crew asked after a long pause as he dropped her hand and took a retreating step. Haley had no doubt he thought she was crazy. Perhaps she was at the moment.
However, now that she was warmed up, she couldn’t hold back. She followed his steps, not realizing what she was doing until he bumped against the outside wall of his resort and her hand was pressed against his chest.
“I know this seems weird, and maybe I should have eased into it, but I am in love with a man who doesn’t know I’m alive and my psych professor suggested that I ask him out as a way of getting over my fears, but I get all tongue-tied around him, which just can’t happen. I want you to teach me how to make him want me — desire me — need me! I have money. Lots of it. I’ll pay you any amount you want if you will agree to be my teacher.”
Haley didn’t feel a trace of fear as she gazed into Crew’s eyes. All she felt was exhilaration. She knew he could do it — he could turn her from the wallflower she’d always been into a seductress who would get her man.
“Let me get this straight. You want to pay me to teach you how to seduce a man?”
“Yes!” she gasped, relieved he was starting to get it.
“I honestly don’t know what to say.” His tone of voice didn’t alert her at all to what he was thinking.
