Release Review: Accidentally on Purpose: Jill Shalvis


Accidentally on Purpose (Heartbreaker Bay #3)
Expected January 24, 2017

There’s no such thing as a little in love…

Elle Wheaten’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. But now that she’s earned happiness and success, Archer just wants Elle 24/7. Their chemistry could start the next San Francisco Earthquake, and 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…
Elle and Archer...we have seen these two dance around each other throughout this series. They are two bossy, controlling, type A, stubborn personalities. Their interactions are antagonistic, heated, and dripping in sexual tension...when they are not doing their best to ignore each other. They are the powder keg in their friend group just waiting to explode.

Their past both ties them together and puts up barriers. She hides her emotions and strives to be perfect all the time. She longs for safety and security. He is quiet, brooding, witty, intelligent, and intimidating to most. He is dangerous...at least to her heart. They try hard to keep each other at a distance, but both long for more and keep that hidden at least from each other. He is closed off from her. She's scared of more rejection and guards her heart. Everyone knows they belong together, but they are both clueless. 

They tease, taunt, and drive each other nuts. He makes her feel alive, but also scares her senseless. He is obsessed with keeping her safe, but hates that she feels indebted to him. Their communication skills need a lot of work. Most of the time they end up fighting, insulting, or walking away from the other.

Both hate showing vulnerability and losing control. But it just takes on moment of true closeness to open up the floodgates. Even when they begin to give into temptation, they still have a lot of issues to wade through. Their past, their hidden feelings, regrets misunderstandings, fears, and outside influences are challenging to them.

They are volatile in every way--sometimes good, sometimes bad, always intense and entertaining.

I loved Archer and Elle together. Even during their denial, they were friends who acted like enemies, but would be there for the other no matter what. But acting on their attraction is only part of the problem, and they still have issues to face for a chance at more. And nothing is ever easy with these two. I was glad to get both of their points of view in order to see what was really going on in their heads.

Their whole friend group is quirky and fun. They've all had more of a clue about Elle and Archer throughout the series as their sexual tension and feelings were a poorly kept secret. The previous couples and whole group is back. I really liked Spence in this one as he was featured and I would love to see him or Kylie get a story. 

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Kim's 4 star review

Choose the one guy you can’t have . . .

As captain of a San Francisco Bay tour boat, Pru can handle rough seas—the hard part is life on dry land. Pru loves her new apartment and her neighbors; problem is, she’s in danger of stumbling into love with Mr. Right for Anybody But Her.

Fall for him—hard . . .

Pub owner Finn O’Riley is six-foot-plus of hard-working hottie who always makes time for his friends. When Pru becomes one of them, she discovers how amazing it feels to be on the receiving end of that deep green gaze. But when a freak accident involving darts (don’t ask) leads to shirtless first aid, things rush way past the friend zone. Fast.

And then tell him the truth.

Pru only wants Finn to be happy; it’s what she wishes for at the historic fountain that’s supposed to grant her heart’s desire. But wanting him for herself is a different story—because Pru’s been keeping a secret that could change everything. . . .


The Trouble With Mistletoe (Heartbreaker Bay #2)
Kim's 4 star review

If she has her way . . .

Willa Davis is wrangling puppies when Keane Winters stalks into her pet shop with frustration in his chocolate-brown eyes and a pink bedazzled cat carrier in his hand. He needs a kitty sitter, stat. But the last thing Willa needs is to rescue a guy who doesn’t even remember her . . .

He’ll get nothing but coal in his stocking.

Saddled with his great-aunt’s Feline from Hell, Keane is desperate to leave her in someone else’s capable hands. But in spite of the fact that he’s sure he’s never seen the drop-dead-gorgeous pet shop owner before, she seems to be mad at him . . .


Unless he tempers “naughty” with a special kind of nice . . .

Willa can’t deny that Keane’s changed since high school: he’s less arrogant, for one thing—but he doesn’t even remember her. How can she trust him not to break her heart again? It’s time to throw a coin in the fountain, make a Christmas wish—and let the mistletoe do its work . . .



One Snowy Night (Heartbreaker Bay #2.5)
New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis returns to Heartbreaker Bay with a fun and festive holiday novella!

It’s Christmas Eve and Rory Andrews is desperate to get home to the family she hasn’t seen in years. Problem is, her only ride to Lake Tahoe comes in the form of the annoyingly handsome Max Stranton, and his big, goofy, lovable dog Carl.

Hours stuck in a truck with the dead sexy Max sounds like a fate worse than death (not), but Rory’s out of options. She’s had a crush on Max since high school and she knows he’s attracted to her, too. But they have history… and Max is the only one who knows why it went south.

They’ve done a good job of ignoring their chemistry so far, but a long road trip in a massive blizzard might be just what they need to face their past… and one steamy, snowy night is all it takes to bring Max and Rory together at last.
