From New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis comes the next sexy, standalone novel in the Heartbreaker Bay series…
About ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE:
There’s no such thing as a little in love . . .
Elle Wheaton’s priorities: friends, career, and kick-ass shoes. Then there’s the muscular wall of stubbornness that’s security expert Archer Hunt—who comes before everything else. No point in telling Mr. “Feels-Free Zone” that, though. Elle will just see other men until she gets over Archer . . . which should only take a lifetime . . .
There’s no such thing as a little in lust . . .
Archer’s wanted the best for Elle ever since he sacrificed his law-enforcement career to save her. Their chemistry could start the next San Francisco earthquake and he craves her 24/7, but Archer doesn’t want to be responsible for the damage. The alternative? Watch her go out with guys who aren’t him . . .
There is such a thing as . . .
As far as Archer’s concerned, nobody is good enough for Elle. But when he sets out to prove it by sabotaging her dates, she gets mad—and things get hot as hell. Now Archer has a new mission: prove to Elle that her perfect man has been here all along . . .
“My life isn’t normal,” she said with a shake of her head.
“Forget normal. Normal’s overrated. Now drink that gross green stuff you can’t survive without.”
“It’s just tea, you weirdo. And I could totally survive without it if I needed to.” She paused. “I just can’t guarantee anyone else’s safety.”
“Exactly, so why take chances?”
Ell rolled her eyes. She was still taking what had happened last night personally. She knew everyone in this building, each and every business on the first and second floor and every tenant on the third and fourth floor, and she felt responsible for all of them.
And someone had been hurt on her watch. Unacceptable. “You do realize that the emergency exit system falls under security’s jurisdiction,” she said. “Which means the security company you hired failed us.”
Spence, following her line of thought, stopped looking so amused. He put down his coffee. “No, Elle.”
“Spence, a year ago now you sought me out for the general manager job. You put me in charge of covering your ass, which we both know I’m very good at. So I’m going to go discuss this matter with Archer, your head of security.”
He grimaced. “At least let me clear the building before you two go at each other.”
“There won’t be a fight.” At least not that she’d tell him about. “I’m simply doing my job and that includes managing one Archer Hunt.”
“Yes, technically,” Spence allowed. “But we both know that he answers to no one but himself and he certainly doesn’t consider you his boss. He doesn’t consider anyone his boss.”
Ell smiled and mainlined some more tea, the nectar of the gods as far as she was concerned. “His problem, not mine.”
Looking pained, Spence stood. “He’s not going to enjoy you going off on him this early half-cocked, Elle.”
“Ask me if I care.”
“I care,” Spence said. “It’s too early to help you bury his body.”
Elle let out a short laugh. Her and Archer’s antagonistic attitude toward each other had been well documented. The thing was, Archer thought he ran the world, including her.
Accidentally on Purpose is the 3rd in the Heartbreaker Bay Series from incredible author Jill Shalvis… who just happens to be a new author to me. A couple of my dear friends who also are reader/reviewers are HUGE fans of hers and convinced me to check her out. Im not immune to reading series books out of order so it was no big deal to just jump right in the middle of this one and see what all the fuss was about.
I can honestly say that I fell in love with the author’s writing style almost from the start. It. was. SMOOTH. Yes, the characters Elle and Archer were great and the story was too (more about that in a moment) but it was the way everything was presented that had me hooked in. The words she used, the movement and lines to the pages. It was just really beautifully written. Kudos to Jill Shalvis for this. Color me impressed.
Apparently Elle and Archer go way back, back to books 1 and 2 (which I now own and will be reading shortly). They have known each other since the growing up days, and now they work together in the same building. Elle had a tough childhood and Archer saw it. She’s successful now but is still ashamed of her meager beginnings and tries to overcome them by working even harder. Archer loves her from a distance and unfortunately, like real life, this means that when you are in close proximity with one another – the safest thing to do is fight. Elle decides that since she cant have Archer, she will just find a man on her own. Archer isn’t having it. NOT AT ALL. And… the hilarity (and hot sexy times) ensues.
I can honestly say I have been missing something in my reading life by not grabbing on to Jill Shalvis sooner. I wont make this mistake again. Books 1 and 2 are locked and loaded and as soon as I get wind of the next release I will be all over it too. Thank you girls for this recommendation that I will definitely be passing on to others!
