Accidentally on Purpose was another wonderful addition to the Heartbreaker Bay series. Archer and Elle are fantastic together!
Accidentally on Purpose (Heartbreaker Bay #3) by Jill Shalvis
Release Date: January 24, 2017
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 . . .
4 out of 5 stars
This was such a great read! One of my very favorite things is when the main characters bicker and argue, when they have that off the charts animosity that's filled with tension and need and it's oh so entertaining. Archer and Elle definitely fit the bill!
This was super entertaining! Archer and Elle have a great back and forth happening. I enjoyed their push and pull and that building chemistry between the two as the story developed. I loved the playfulness throughout and how challenging they both could be. I thought there was really good development and I enjoyed learning their history. I also loved when they open up bit by bit and more emotion and vulnerability come into play. I thought there was a nice balance with it all.
I have to say though, as much as I liked them, they were both seriously stubborn and on more than one occasion, I wanted to smack them because that back and forth, as fun as it could be, got a bit tedious. Of course, by the end when everything plays out it was totally worth it and I was trying not to cry, but there were parts with their drama that did feel a bit drawn out to me. Archer and Elle are crazy and fun and exasperating all at once! I loved them together and this friction they had but I loved those tender moments even more.
I really like the family that all of their friends and other couples have created, it's so fun and sweet. Their interactions create some seriously entertaining and sweet moments that had me laughing. Love the men ribbing each other and the women and their meddling. Love all the interactions with Spencer, I'm chomping at the bit for his story.
The writing was great, I enjoyed the story. It was light and fun with a good mix of entertainment and drama. A fantastic HEA! Jill Shalvis books always leave me feeling extremely happy with a smile in my face. Loved Archer and Ella's story. They're both rather complicated and stubborn but loyal and loving and watching them connect was fantastic.
