There’s no such thing as a little in love…

Elle Wheaten’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. But now that she’s earned happiness and success, Archer just wants Elle 24/7. Their chemistry could start the next San Francisco Earthquake, and 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 Thoughts

Accidentally on Purpose is the third book in the adult contemporary romance, Heartbreaker Bay series by Jill Shalvis. Each of the books can be read as standalones, but they do follow different couples in a group of friends. I have heard amazing things about the second book in the series, The Trouble with Mistletoe, and it is on my TBR for the next holiday season. I really loved Accidentally on Purpose. I think it might be my first 5 star contemporary romance of the year.

Accidentally on Purpose is told in dual narrative between Archer and Elle. I freakin’ loved Archer and Elle. If someone came up to me and said Michelle, what would be a great combination for a romance. I would say, I love bantering, I love a couple who keeps one another on their toes, and I love a long play romance with some good guy jealousy. Archer and Elle had all of that in spades. Theirs is a story that I already want to revisit. Elle’s background added a whole other layer of complexity to their story, but watching them dance around one another was so much fun! Archer was so not subtle at all when he sabotaged all of Elle’s dates. It cracked me up. And Elle is not someone that I would want to piss off. She is fierce.

Just as much as I loved Archer and Elle, I also loved the whole group of friends. They all knew something was up with Archer. It was pretty obvious, so watching their reactions to the whole back and forth dance was pretty funny too. It made me want to read the rest of the books in the Heartbreakers Bay series. I couldn’t get enough of this book. I stayed up late into the night to finish it.

Bottom line: if you like awesome romances with couples that can keep each other on their toes, this book is a no brainer for you. you need to read it. I need more Jill Shalvis in my life because Accidentally on Purpose was a home run for me. It was equal parts playful and sexy, and totally riveting from start to finish. I loved Archer and Elle.

    I’m not sure how I’d react to an ex sabotaging my dates, but this sounds like a cute story overall! Thanks for giving us the chance to grab a copy!

    • Michelle @ Book Briefs

      I know the summary is a little confusing on that point, but he isn’t really her ex. They just had an interesting past, but they weren’t previously involved. 🙂 Its a really great read!
