Publisher's Summary

There's no such thing as a little in love.

Elle Wheaton'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 take only 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. Their chemistry could start the next San Francisco earthquake, and he craves her 24/7, but 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 Love the Humor and Heart

Any additional comments?

I am a long time fan of Jill Shalvis and this book is a fine example of why. Her characters are likable, even when dealing with personal issues and problems. I also love the humor that is regularly injected into her books. A good listen.

"Cornucopia of Smutty Goodness"

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

YES, as I am on ch 5 as I write this...I wanted to pass on the feel goodness! I am a long time fan of Ms Shalvis, Rumor Has It & Then Came You are in the top 5! <br/>You know you have a winner story when you take the time to savor the telling of it, and not just to fill time and movement, this one joins the above group.

What other book might you compare Accidentally on Purpose to and why?

Jamie Farrel's Her Rebel Heart is another simple feel good story, with lots of laughs.<br/>Katie Graykowski Texas series, with all the wonderful brothers, yum!

Which scene was your favorite?

Ms White, in the top five reader category for me, brings author's work to life with her great male voices and her interpretation of author's humor:<br/><br/>"Mass of mind blowing bodies" as the guys come back in from an Op. Dog Carl "laid down to expose his kibble and bits". When our heroine explains success and in GREAT shoes.<br/>The "Smores" rescue. This is a simple feel good story with lots of pals YOU would want to be around to have fun, have your back, and fall in love.

Was it the book or the narrator?

Both! I have read a lot of Jill's books. This is the first audio I've listened to. I won't do it Again. Apparently when I read I skip cliches and tone down the arrogance of the characters and that cannot be done when listening. In addition, there were too many repeats on the characters background. These were too detailed and slowed down the story... Wheaton women, terrible relationship with his dad. Agh, and the narrators voice annoyed me because the way she read it. This was her interpretation of the story. Too many cliches, I would say them at the same time. Yuk!

Undemanding romance

There was nothing really wrong with this book. It was well written, great narration, good plot and no boring bits. But somehow it just failed to grab me and pull me in. I’m not sure why, as I loved the H and h and there were also some great side characters and enough of a plot to keep the story moving along nicely. I think the book needed a prologue of the first meeting of the H and h to really pull the reader into the story. Add this issue to the fact that they worked together for a year before the romance started and if left me feeling something was missing. I really enjoyed listening to this book, but with large chunks of the story happening before the first chapter, I feel some important things were left out.
