Elle is cool, sophisticated, and in charge. Nothing gets under her skin, except Archer. Archer is a bad a$$ security expert, taciturn, stony, loyal. Elle is his biggest weak spot. But in spite of appearances, both Elle and Archer have pasts that are very different from their current lives, and while they never speak of them, they both know each others stories.
The two had been circling each other in the previous books in the series but in Accidentally on Purpose, they finally come together. Explosively! Both Elle and Archer had to face their pasts before they could move forward, and each saw their pasts differently. It was seeing themselves through the eyes of the other that let them move forward. A character like Elle could be too perfect, to untouchable to relate to. And Archer too hard, too cold. But Shalvis makes them both human, more than just their personalities, and I found myself rooting for them to succeed.
I received an advance copy of this book in return for an honest review, and I can honestly highly recommend it. It's going right to my to be reread pile. And while this is part of a series, the series doesn't need to be read in order. This works as a stand alone--but don't miss the rest of the series!
But he can't help the attraction he feels for her, which results in him sabotaging every date she dares to accept from other men. But what really gets his attention is when Morgan suddenly shows up and so also do some bad guys working with her bad ex- who was responsible for previous problems of the sisters. Will Archer's skills really be needed now and if so, will Elle recognize how he feels, that he feels, when she's convinced he doesn't?
Elle has some pretty simple priories in life - her friends, her career, and very importantly, SHOES!!!! Elle had a hard start to life and while she tries to keep that hidden from everyone; Archer knew Elle before she was a responsible adult. And this bothers her a lot more than it should.
Archer had been a police officer when he made a decision that saved Elle but in the long run cost him his career. Elle has believed that she is why he left the police force. Yet, Archer left the police force because he felt it was the best decision for him. He is now the owner of a very elite private security firm. And his office is in the same building that Elle manages.
Every time, Archer and Elle are in the same room, everyone else can feel and see the sparks that flash between these two. But Elle refuses to see the sparks and that her perfect mate is actually Archer. Archer thinks that no male she dates is good enough nor will they ever be good enough for her. So he decides to make her see that he is the perfect man for her and the fun begins.
Clear your calendar and make sure to put up a do not disturb sign. Stock up on your favorite beverage and some good chocolate prior to settling in to read this book. You will love it!
This book is delicious. Im not a fan of sex every page or admitting their love too early, but this had good sex fairly early on and I was concerned it was over. But it wasn't. The sex description was good, and hot but not gross. Jill keeps the sex classy and not slutty...and that's one of the reasons she's my favorite.
I liked the insecurities of both Archer and Elle. I liked...scratch that...I loved the banter between the 2.
This was a stand alone but I can tell she's either written or will write other plots as many of the characters are present but not pondered on.
I am a pretty hard sell and have been known to stop reading books if they're not good....and this one was one I couldn't put down.
Thanks Jill....I appreciate such a great job!

Elle is the buildings manager where Archer has his security office, she is always immaculately put together and tough due to her childhood upbringing. Archer is the man she loves but the tension that these too create is on the hot scale and Archer has a no touch rule where Elle is concerned as he feels that she feels she owes him something due to him losing his budding young career when he saved her when they were younger.
This story involves Elles sister coming back into her life and bringing danger with her, so that Elles knight in shining armour and a stapler have to come to the rescue and the undying attraction between them.
All the books in this series have Eddie in them - he is a homeless man that they all look after by providing food, drinks and clothes and he offers them advice- I love this character.
This book is about regrets, family, putting wrongs right, friends, attraction and love. I would definitely recommend this book to romance lovers out there.
