Review: Accidentally on Purpose (Heartbreaker Bay #3) by Jill Shalvis

Accidentally On Purpose- Tour banner    

From New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis comes the next sexy, standalone novel in the Heartbreaker Bay series…



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 . . .

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Before anything else I want to say this. I was convinced Spence and Elles sister would have made a good couple. Now, after finding out that Spence is going to get another lady I am a little disappointed.She is going to be a better fit for Spence and that makes me feel better. I liked him and I want the best for him. 

Accidentally on purpose is Elle and Archers story. They met many years ago when Elle wasn't in the best phase of her life and Archer helped her get over that. They became friends, but nothing more. Over the years the attraction on both parties grew, but nothing happened because according to Elle he was avoiding her as much as she was avoiding him. At least he had a good excuse. I understood his reasoning. I wouldn't want to remind of someone the bad parts of their past and/or hold them back. 
40% (?) Archer and Elle hadn't managed to get together yet, but I thought that it was ok and I was liking the flow of the story. What I didn't like was the date that came a couple of pages later. Thankfully the devious Archer stopped it before it got too far for my liking. After that things started getting better and our couple was able to move past the barriers that were holding them back and dance in the horizontal way.

For the romance novel there is plenty of action and more visits to the hospital than I thought that might have happened. I liked the story and the flow was good. It was a pleasure reading the story most of the time. I will definitely come back for more. All the gang is growing on me and I want to see what will happen next. The story was good and I might have said excellent if it weren't for the two dates. The writing was good and the chemistry between the characters explosive. So far this is my favorite book in the series, but I have a feeling that Spence's book will be even better.
