Release Date: January 24, 2017
Series: Heartbreaker Bay #3
Publisher: Avon Books
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 . . .
Accidentally on Purpose was on the top of my most anticipated book releases of 2017. I’ve been dying to get my hands on Elle and Archer’s story! Jill teased us non stop with their interactions in the previous books and their chemistry promised a very hot collision.
Elle has a troubled pass, she doesn’t trust easily, she builds walls around her and nothing gets under her skin… except Archer. She actually pushed herself to become a controlled, sophisticated, confident woman but she knows Archer sees right through her. She’s very loyal to her friends and has a caring heart even though she doesn’t share her lowest moments with them. I have to say I really loved her relationship with Spencer! If Archer wasn’t in the picture, I would totally root for Spencer and Elle (and this almost sounds like incest… eeewww, but you get the picture).
Archer’s been protecting Elle every step of the way since they met without taking any credit for it, he tries to stay away from her because he thinks he’s not good enough and also because Elle acts like she hates him. He’s a hot, selfless protective alpha hero, a bad-ass security expert and a control freak. So, when Elle sets a date with a guy who’s not worthy of her… well Archer has to interfere…
Elle and Archer have history. Their past is entwined and both have their regrets, they never talk about it so they also have misconceived ideas concerning each other’s feelings. They are two stubborn control freaks that just can’t stop arguing when they should be tearing their walls down but they hate losing control so they just keep fighting temptation and butting heads.
Archer and Elle are absolutely fantastic together: their banter, the sexual tension, their loyalty, their battle for control, even the moments when they were just being stubborn, and when they finally give in to their chemistry… amazing! They’re not just HOT, they are EXPLOSIVE together! Book boyfriend alert!
Accidentally on Purpose is a must read and definitely one of my top favorites of 2017. Can’t wait for Spencer’s story…
I received a copy of this book from HarperCollins via Edelweiss.
