Accidentally On Purpose by Jill Shalvis
Series: Heartbreaker Bay #3
Published by Avon Genres: Contemporary
I was excited when Jill Shalvis announced her new Heartbreaker Bay series so I was super excited that when I started reading it I was truly hooked by the new group of characters. With each book that has been released I always say that this one is my favorite but I have to admit after reading Accidentally on Purpose that this might be my favorite so far. From the beginning of the Heartbreaker Bay series Elle and Archer have had this love/hate relationship and I couldn’t wait to find out why.
Archer Hunt doesn’t regret giving up his law enforcement career the night he saved Elle many years ago. Since then he has looked out for her, making sure she was happy and safe, even though she never knew. But his attraction to her over the years hasn’t lessened one bit. Archer knows they have chemistry but since they also have a past he knows that she can do better than him, but when Elle’s past comes into the present he will do anything and everything to make sure she stays safe.
Elle Wheaten has had feelings for Archer for as long as she can remember but she also knows that with their history things might never happen between them. Now it’s time to finally get over the most stubborn man she ever met and dating other men is the answer until the hunky security expert starts to sabotage each date in some way or another. With the chemistry burning between them it’s only a matter of time before they act on it and along the way she realizes she needs Archer more then she thought especially as he has owned her heart from the beginning.
Accidentally on Purpose had the right amount of tension, chemistry and funny banter that had me loving Elle and Archer’s story. I couldn’t wait to see what the story was between them and Ms. Shalvis did a hell of a job getting me ready for them in the previous books and yet I was still impressed how everything with them came together and I wondered how they would work out.
Archer was sweeter than I thought he would be but I really did love him. Elle was a ball buster at times but the way Archer gave it right back to her had me laughing out loud. I enjoyed watching these two try to figure their way around one another even though they both want one another. They are clueless to each other’s feelings but I seriously couldn’t get enough of their bickering and banter.
Ms. Shalvis explains their past in great detail and by the end I was completely satisfied with how Accidentally on Purpose turned out. I also enjoyed the moments when their group of friends got together, they are truly a fun group. I hope Accidentally on Purpose isn’t the last book in this series because there are a few more characters I am dying to know about and we also get to see more of Archer’s security team.
Accidentally on Purpose was a great addition to this already addictive series and I am hooked. Ms. Shalvis has a special talent for bringing her characters to life and having me want to join their group. I highly recommend Accidentally on Purpose for everyone’s reading pleasure.
