Accidentally on Purpose (Heartbreaker Bay, #3) by Jill Shalvis ~ Review

Source:  Received book from publisher in exchange for fair and honest review.

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…

While this book can be read as a stand alone, it was so fun to watch these two through the first two books.  Archer is all protective but keeps his distance and Elle is a total bada$$ who doesn't want anyone to see her feeling for feeling (especially when he appears to have NONE).  Yeah, right on both counts!  And I'll admit I wondered what was up with these two as I enjoyed the other stories.  This book...this book tells it all.

Definitely enjoyed this series!  Check out all of these books on Goodreads.

It was interesting to find out about their past and why they are acting the way they are.  They try very hard to just be friends but the sparks flying are hard to resist.  It was a delight to watch these two.

Elle decides she's over Archer and starts to date other men.  Archer feels like no one is good enough for Elle which obviously means he should ruin her dates with other men.  Yeah, that all went well.  Lots of laughs, which I so love in my romance.  And two more stubborn  people I've never met.

And there is the case of the sofa endangerment.  I reveal NOTHING because it's fate must be experienced.

When you mix all this fun with some great characters, excellent story telling skills and the perfect ending and I couldn't help but read it straight through in one night.  This author does such a good job of crafting a group of friends that are really a family.  I just wanted to be part of it.

It's always nice when a series continues to hold my interest this long and this one certainly does.  I'll definitely be waiting for book four in the series to see what's up with Spence.  He peeked my interest in this one and I want to know his story.

If you love books that focus on a group of friends who support and tease each other, than make sure to check out this great one.
