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…
I freaking ADORED this book!! I was in the mood for a feel-good contemporary romance, which Jill Shalvis definitely delivered. This is only my second book by her, and my first in the Heartbreaker Bay series, but I’m thinking I need to read the rest of this series and more from her backlist… asap! Gah, this book was seriously so sweet and funny. I swooned over Elle and Archer’s story. If you’re ever in the mood for a romance that will totally put a smile on your face, you need to get your hands on Accidentally on Purpose!
Elle used to have a crush on Archer, which started back when he saved her when she was a teenager, but she’s been trying to find other men to get over him. It doesn’t help that now, years later, they’re working in such close environments that a day can’t go by without seeing each other. They have a brilliant chemistry between them – they get on each others’ nerves, they’re the only ones that can rile the other up, and they definitely want each other. Archer has tried to stay away from Elle for her sake, but watching her date men that aren’t good enough for her and will never be good enough for her is starting to break him. So he decides to take matters into his own hands and give her the man she needs… himself.
God. He already couldn’t remember what it’d been like before her. He’d thought everything was great in his life but then he’d been thrown a curveball in the form of this gorgeous, passionate woman who he suddenly couldn’t get enough of.
Which made it official. He was hers, completely. “You’re beautiful, Elle,” he said, pressing tight against her. “The most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.”
Elle is such a fantastic heroine! Her stubbornness and strength had my admiration, and her banter with Archer had me giggling and dying for more. Anytime these two characters were together on the pages, I honestly couldn’t stop smiling. They are ADORABLE together – they just don’t realize it. 😉 Their friends had me cracking up as well – I definitely need to get on reading the other couples’ books soon!
The easiest way to make me happy with a book is to give me a hero who works hard to win the heroine’s love, and Archer did just that. He’s a little gruff and just as stubborn as Elle… but the way he worshipped Elle had me having hearts in my eyes. If you’re a fan of well-written, funny, feel-good romances, I highly recommend you pick up this book. Accidentally on Purpose was such a fantastic read – I’m really hoping Jill Shalvis’ other books are like this one, because if so, I’m going to love them all!
“You’re gorgeous,” he said reverently. “The best thing that’s ever happened to me.” He met her gaze. “I’ve never wanted anything or anyone the way I want you.”

Jill Shalvis used to be one of my go to authors in the early part of my romance reading career. I’ve not read any of her newer stuff but I do have a fondness for her.
I hope you give Accidentally on Purpose a try then!
I’ve read and enjoyed the first two books in this series and would be thrilled to own number three for my home library.
Glad you hear you liked the first two books! I’ll have to read them 🙂 Good luck!
I haven’t read any of Jill’s books. Would enjoy reading, like trying new to me authors.
Yes, you should definitely try out Jill Shalvis! You could start with AoP ❤
I haven’t read any of Jill’s books that I am aware of. This new series of hers looks wonderful & am adding it to my Must Read list. Thanks!
I hope you give it a try! AoP is seriously so great!
Jill Shalvis is one of my favorite authors, I love so many of them from the Lucky Harbor, Animal Magnetism, Wilder Brothers, Cedar Ridge and now the Heartbreaker Bay series. But if I had to pick just one (which is really hard), I’d have to say Head Over Heels from the Lucky Harbor series
Oooh, I can’t wait to read them all! I’ll definitely check out Head Over Heels! ❤
I have not read one of Jill’s books…yet
You should start with this then! 😉
Big fan of her books, I just love how she incorporates animals in all her stories. Which is why her Animal Magnetism series is my favorite. I’d have to say Rumor Has It was my favorite of those ones!
New author to me but will be read one of her books soon. Several on my TBR list. Good e
Loved the review. Look forward to reading one of Jill Shalvis’s books.
