Whenever I don’t know what I am in the mood to read, I always look to Jill Shalvis and her books. They always enter and never disappoint. Such is the case with Accidentally on Purpose, the third book in her Heartbreaker Bay series. You don’t have to read these books in order as each one stands alone and is connected by characters or friends.
Archer and Elle are tough. Tough individuals and were a little tough for me to fall in love with at first. The way they avoided each other was somewhat annoying yet I couldn’t stop turning the pages and had a difficult time putting the book down. Shalvis’ writing is like that. Even if you are not instantly fond of how the characters are acting you still find yourself immersed in their lives and you just can’t turn away.
As the story played out my heart gave way to Archer and Elle when they both turned a corner on how they were approaching their relationshiop and letting their guards down a bit. Their chemistry was off the charts and they fell into a comfortable rhythm. Not every relationship is the same in real life which makes books more entertaining when you have a couple like this. Their bickering works for them. They like to push each other. They both like control. Shalvis did an excellent job with these two.
The supporting characters in the story are always great and I hope we get more of Joe and Spence in future books! I also adored the tiny bit of suspense this story offered. It was perfect for Archer and Elle’s story. If you are looking for a sexy, contemporary romance story, give Accidentally on Purpose a read.
