ABOUT THE BOOK:

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 . . .

EXCERPT:

His hand caught her, long fingers wrapping around her elbow and causing all sorts of unwelcome sensations as he pulled her back around. “What?” she asked. “Waiting for my apology.” “Sure,” she said agreeably. “When hell freezes over.” She lifted her chin, grateful for her four-inch heels so that she could almost, kind of, not quite look him in the eyes. “I’m in charge of this building, Archer, which means I’m in charge of everything that happens in it. I’m also in charge of everyone who works for this building.” He cocked his head, looking amused again. “You want to be the boss of me, Elle?” he asked softly. I am the boss of you.” Now he outright smiled and her breath caught. Damn, stupid, sexy smile. And then there was The Body. Yes, she thought of it in capital letters, it deserved the respect. “If you don’t want to be walking funny tomorrow,” she said, “you’ll stop invading my personal-space bubble.” Complete bravado and they both knew it. She’d only been at this job for a year and it’d come as a surprise to her that he’d been in the building at all. An unfortunate coincidence. Before that it’d been years since they’d had any contact, but she still knew enough to get that no one got the better of him. He was quick, light on his feet, and physically strong. But that wasn’t what made him so dangerous to her. No, it was his sharp intelligence, his quick wit, how he was willing to go as dark as he needed to in order to do what he thought was right. And then there was the biggie—the way he had of making her feel shockingly alive. He did as she asked and stepped back but not before pausing to make sure they both knew who was in control here, and it most definitely wasn’t her. No one did intimidation like Archer, and in his line of work he could be in a coma and still intimidate everyone in the room. He had muscles on top of muscles but didn’t look beefed up like a body builder might. Instead his body seemed lean and seriously badass, with caramel skin that strayed from light to golden to mocha latte depending on what the season was, giving him a look of indeterminable origin. And sexiness. It worked for him, allowing him to fit in to just about any situation. Handy on the job, she imagined. But with her he was careful. Distant. And yet she’d seen the way he sometimes looked at her, and on the rare occasion when he’d touched her, like when he guided her through a door with his hand low on her back, he let himself linger. There was always a shocking and baffling yearning beyond both the glances and the touches. That, or it was all just wishful thinking. Not that it mattered since he still held back with her. The problem was she yearned too. Yearned for him to see her as a woman, strong and capable enough to stand at his side. But after what they’d been through, she knew that would never happen. She turned away, annoyed by how her entire body had gone on high alert as always, every inch of her seeming to hum beneath the surface. She should have just emailed him.




OUR REVIEWS:


5 Stars!

 I was pulled right into this story. The story has pain, secrets, suspense, and heartbreak.

Before reading this story please read the below books first:
Sweet Little Lies (Heartbreaker Bay #1)
The Trouble with Mistletoe (Heartbreaker Bay #2)
One Snowy Night (Heartbreaker Bay #2.5)


This is Elle and Archer’s story. Elle and Archer has a past. After he saved her he has continued to keep an eye out for her. She has tried to pay him back for saving her and losing the one thing she thinks he wanted. Now as the truth of the past comes out do either of them need to feel guilty? Now the chemistry is heating up and they can’t resist. But will misunderstanding keep them apart? What happens when players of the past come back to cause pain and heartbreak. Can they finally agree to move on from the past or will the past take everything including the friendship they have shared for years away?

I loved these characters and the side characters. I felt I could connect with the characters and the story was a great read.

I highly recommend this book and can’t wait for the next story from this author.





5 Stars!

Jill Shalvis is brand new to me... and highly recommended by my blog partner. One thing she promised me was sweet and easy... and that is definitely what I got plus a little more. Full of romance, passion, and desires, Jill gives her readers a book that will hook them from the first page and had me thinking long after those pages quit turning.

Accidentally on Purpose was a sweet, light, intense, fun, and full of emotions standalone romance, this book shows the power of fate and love.. and how sweet it can be if you just open your heart and give it a fighting chance. Sigh... Elle and Archer, absolute perfection together with chemistry that just rolled right off the pages.

If you are new to this author like me, this is the PERFECT way to start out.

 I highly recommend this book.
