deadly progressive disease and the doctor who was just days away from
finding a cure no longer has the lab or the funds to continue his
research. A mother who refuses to give up, Kerri hatches a plan to
ask Nathan King to donate the money needed to again finance the
scientific labs with personnel and equipment so a cure for her son's
disease can be found. Since his son died of the same disease, Kerri
just knows Nathan will help her. She couldn't be more wrong.
Nathan King could care less about Kerri or her requests. He just
wants to get the county commission to fund the dynamic and very
expensive condos he is trying to get approval for. He does not have
time to be a bleeding heart for some kid he does not know, nor does he
care to know. Nathan refuses Kerri's plead of help. In a truly cold
fashion, he firmly denies Kerri and vows to make her pay for
embarrassing him in the public eye. But like a true male, he has
absolutely no idea the power of a mother's love.
Nathan's character made me hate him at first. I thought he was
insensitive and mean. Wanting to shake him more times than I can
count, I had to make myself see things from his point of view. When I
did that, I began to fall in love with the complex man who was Nathan
King. As for Kerri Sullivan, her fortitude and never-give-up attitude
kept me from becoming too morose. Her faith was never ending and if I
could be half the mother she was, I would be a fine mother indeed.
Grab the tissues because Accidentally Yours is nothing if not a tear
jerker. Tearing up more times than if I was cutting onions, I just
calmly wiped my eyes and kept reading. Throughout the entire book, I
was never sure whether the miracle that Kerri needed would happen, but
I still couldn't put Accidentally Yours down. Susan Mallery has taken
emotion to a new level with Accidentally Yours and while it was a very
tough book to read, it was also astonishingly wonderful.

Though the premise seems strained at first -- a young child with a painful, terminal disease and the mother who will do anything to save him -- author Susan Mallery makes her story work.
Kerri Sullivan is undeterred in her quest to find a solution for her son's illness. She is brave, she is funny, she is imaginative. Though the illness in the novel is ficticious, it could stand for any number of deadly childhood conditions.
In the process of Kerri's research, she learns of a local billionaire whose own child had died of the same condition. With difficulty and connivance, she arranges to meet him, thinking that he is the most likely candidate to fund the research for a cure.
He, however, is bitter about his son's death and not at all interested in anyone else's suffering.
So here's a woman with no time to love and a man who's too scarred to love. Of course, they do fall in love.
Despite how sad this description may be, ACCIDENTALLY YOURS actually is a humorous, clever book. Face-paced and touching, too. Susan Mallery is to be complimented.
Sometimes I felt that I was right there with the characters, visualizing every situation. I was laughing at times, angry, frustrated and balling in other areas of the book. In my opinion, a book that has the ability to put readers through a whole range of emotions makes for a good book. This one will definitely be a keeper!

Nathan, Cody and Frankie and their own story put it up for me till the epilogue and maybe I eventually got used to Kerri...
