Accidentally on Purpose

When Emmy sleeps with Kyle after a night of drinking, she quickly tries to put the mistake behind her. When the duo is snowed in together over a long weekend, Emmy begins to discover there is more to Kyle than his mean-spirited behavior. Unfortunately, Kyle has a steady girlfriend he is unwilling to break up with. Moving on and putting that long weekend behind her, Emmy starts dating attorney Luke Kessler. Luke treats Emmy with kindness, reverence, and loves her unconditionally. He is everything Emmy should ever want in a man - sexy, intelligent, successful, and funny, with strong family bonds.

Publisher's Summary

Kyle Sterling is Emmy's boss and the biggest jerk she knows. He's abrasive, uptight, and selfish.

When Emmy sleeps with Kyle after a night of drinking, she quickly tries to put the mistake behind her. When the duo is snowed in together over a long weekend, Emmy begins to discover there is more to Kyle than his mean-spirited behavior. Unfortunately, Kyle has a steady girlfriend he is unwilling to break up with.

Moving on and putting that long weekend behind her, Emmy starts dating attorney Luke Kessler. Luke treats Emmy with kindness, reverence, and loves her unconditionally. He is everything Emmy should ever want in a man - sexy, intelligent, successful, and funny, with strong family bonds. He is definitely everything her loudmouthed, overly opinionated mother could ever want for her. Even as their relationship takes off, Emmy is finding Kyle hard to shake. He aggressively pursues her, blatant in his feelings and desire for her.

When Emmy succumbs to her hidden feelings for Kyle without setting Luke free, devastating consequences ensue. Addicted to Kyle, unable to purge him from her life, Emmy's once easygoing life is now on a path of destruction. Will she let go of this man before it's too late? Is Luke's love truly unconditional? Will Emmy ever recover from accidentally-on-purpose falling for two men at the same time?

    "Another Winner for Me!"

    Although, I'm not fond of books about cheating....this book kept my attention. Its worth the credit to me! I would categorize this book under New Adult Romance.

    "Love Triangle at It's Best"
    If you could sum up Accidentally on Purpose in three words, what would they be?

    Emotional, Angsty, Rollercoaster!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely! I just could not put this down. I lost plenty sleep but it was worth it!


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book! To sum it up, Emmy runs into her dick of a boss, Kyle, at a bar and hook up. And that is where the fun begins! Kyle and Emmy pursue a relationship but Kyle already has a serious girlfriend and can't break up with her. Emmy gets fed up after a while and tries to move on with another hot guy at her office, Luke. He's had the hots for Emmy for a very, very, long time. Emmy loves both men and despite the circumstances she tries to balance both guys for a while and this takes a toll on her. There were some hilarious moments as well as gut wrenching moments. If you love roller coasters, you will love this book!

    What did you love best about Accidentally on Purpose?

    It was funny, sexy and sad, had all my emotion going.

    When Kyle and Emmy got drunk - I cried with Luke pour his heart out Emmy, it was so sad.

    "Wow so realistic!"

    Characters who are honestly flawed and human, you truly feel anger and sympathy for Emmy and total empathy for Luke. I have to say the inevitable comeuppance Emmy is dealt by Luke is riveting and left me shaken, all due to the writing of L D Davis and the spot on delivery by narrator Serena Daniels. Buy or credit you'll be happy with this purchase.

    "Love/hate type thing."

    Oh, where to start. I lost sleep over this book, wanting to finish it. But I spent the whole night wanting to punch Emmy in the face repeatedly. It truly is some type of torture, painful but realistic and written nicely. Thus the love/hate thing.
    At the very end she FINALLY sees the writing on the wall, and that's when my alarm rang.
    I can't believe I've lost a whole nights sleep over this one :/

    Story
    "Not Bad Writing, But NOT for Me"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, no I would not- unless I knew they adored 'cheating' romances. I also have no intention of ever listening to this book ever again.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    There are moments that I connected, and I was drawn into the book- but it's more like a car wreck you can't help but drive slowly and gawk at. The timeline bounces around, so part of the 'end' isn't really even the 'end'... I've read other books that use this technique that I liked but I feel it wasn't necessary in this case. I feel keeping some of the major revelations within the time frame that they happened would not have negatively impacted the narrative.


    Did Serena Daniels do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    There were some conversations I had trouble following. I don't feel the narrator separated the voices for Kyle, Em, or Luke enough (in some instances, at least) and I was left confused. 'Who said that? Who is talking right now?' ran across my thoughts more than once.

    Her voice 'worked' for the main character, and she was easy to listen to overall, but Serena being the narrator didn't help the book either. Some books, even if I'm not completely won over by the story- I'll be won over by the narration. Not so in this case. She wasn't 'bad' but was far from 'great'


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Umm... I don't know that there was anything that could be done to 'fix' this. I just didn't care for the characters or the story. I was frustrated a majority of the time I listened. So... I guess the only way it could be irresistible is to pick a different book?


    Any additional comments?

    Just when I think I can like different characters for different reasons... *Gah* I can't even properly communicate this. OK- there is a quote in the book, where one character calls another a "dirty penis head". Well... for me, everyone, and I do mean everyone (yes, Luke too) is a "dirty penis head" in this book. I know I'm probably going to have some hardcore Luke lovers going after me on this- but I call them like I see them, and even he became a douchebag more than once. Repeatedly.

    I love audio books that the characters come to life and have me feeling as if I was there too.

    "OMG and NOT in a good way :("

    I got this book just cause I love to get books....but it was not a good pick. It was Jerry Springer all the way. It had drama after drama maybe that is why I finished it. There were so bust out laughing moments but mostly its like REALLY :/ You can get this book if you want but ITS NOT a relisten.

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "Excellent Story"

    Emmy falls for two men. These men are entirely different. I enjoyed this book because it's so real to life. You can love someone that is totally bad for you. The sexual situations are very mild, but this book covers very adult situations that many face in their life. It's a book worthy of a credit.

    Story
    "No redeeming value, AT ALL!"

    Narrator does 1 good male voice and the rest just sound dopey. And the plot...gesh! Okay, I only got 2 hours into it, I won't lie, but I feel justified.

    The heroine of the story was just plain dumb, I mean truly too stupid to live. She starts an affair with her practically engaged boss, realizes that is NOT a good plan and starts dating someone else. Of course the boss is pissed, the new guy is clueless, and everyone seems to be sleeping with everyone. Lots of cheating, no condoms used, and the word Love is tossed around like the word of the day!

    I finally turned it off when guy#1 was at her house, and 2 minute after he leaves guy#2 knocks on her door....she jokes "What did you do drive around the block until the coast was clear?", he admits he did...then after guy#2 leaves guy#1 calls and she acts like she hasn't seen him in days...um....he was JUST THERE!!!

    Poorly written, poorly executed, not worth the $4.95 I paid for it....and the "steamy" scenes had zero steam! They were written in almost a clinical way, no buildup, no play by play in a sensual way...have I mentioned this book had ZERO redeeming value?

    PASS!!!!!

    Anyway, still going through my library of books I have purchased and never got around to listening to. I'm hoping my next "A" book is better than this drivel.
