About ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE:

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 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. 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 . . .


Accidentally On Purpose- Tour Teaser 1


“My life isn’t normal,” she said with a shake of her head.
                  “Forget normal. Normal’s overrated. Now drink that gross green stuff you can’t survive without.”
                  “It’s just tea, you weirdo. And I could totally survive without it if I needed to.” She paused. “I just can’t guarantee anyone else’s safety.”
                  “Exactly, so why take chances?”
                  Ell rolled her eyes. She was still taking what had happened last night personally. She knew everyone in this building, each and every business on the first and second floor and every tenant on the third and fourth floor, and she felt responsible for all of them.
                  And someone had been hurt on her watch. Unacceptable. “You do realize that the emergency exit system falls under security’s jurisdiction,” she said. “Which means the security company you hired failed us.”
                  Spence, following her line of thought, stopped looking so amused. He put down his coffee. “No, Elle.”
                  “Spence, a year ago now you sought me out for the general manager job. You put me in charge of covering your ass, which we both know I’m very good at. So I’m going to go discuss this matter with Archer, your head of security.”
                  He grimaced. “At least let me clear the building before you two go at each other.”
                  “There won’t be a fight.” At least not that she’d tell him about. “I’m simply doing my job and that includes managing one Archer Hunt.”
                  “Yes, technically,” Spence allowed. “But we both know that he answers to no one but himself and he certainly doesn’t consider you his boss. He doesn’t consider anyone his boss.”
                  Ell smiled and mainlined some more tea, the nectar of the gods as far as she was concerned. “His problem, not mine.”
                  Looking pained, Spence stood. “He’s not going to enjoy you going off on him this early half-cocked, Elle.”
                  “Ask me if I care.”
                  I care,” Spence said. “It’s too early to help you bury his body.”
                  Elle let out a short laugh. Her and Archer’s antagonistic attitude toward each other had been well documented. The thing was, Archer thought he ran the world, including her.


Accidentally on Purpose is the third book in Jill Shalvis' Heartbreaker Bay series.  Like all of Jill Shalvis' series, this book could definitely be read as a standalone.  Jill Shalvis does a great job of mentioning other characters from prior books, but not making the new book in the series dependent upon having read the other books.  So you can pick up anywhere in the series and read.  I have read the other books in the Heartbreaker Bay series, but you definitely don't have to before reading this.  You will probably want to read them after though.

This book is the story of Elle and Archer.  Archer owns a security business and Elle manages a building.  They have the same friends and run in the same circles, but they've known each other for a long time.  When Elle was 16, Archer was a police officer.  He ended up turning her life around.  They lost touch (or at least Elle thought they did) for years and then Elle ended up working in Archer's building.  

Both Elle and Archer have always felt something for the other.  But years ago Elle was too young.  Now Archer feels some responsibility for her and still resists.  Until he finally can't resist any longer.

Archer is strong, a bit controlling, but so very caring.  Elle, though she came from a hard beginning, is also strong and hardworking, but untrusting.  Once they get together and get past their hangups they are perfect for each other.  Accidentally on Purpose is a sweet, but sexy romance.  It's a light read and perfect to curl up with.  

I give Accidentally on Purpose FOUR STARS!

THE KNIGHT by SKYE WARREN - #RELEASEDAY #BOOKREVIEW @skye_warren

Grab THE KNIGHT by Skye Warren NOW!
“Positively sinful, and outrageously sexy! Emotions run high and readers will be left gasping.” – New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones
Title:  The Knight
Series: Endgame #2
Author:  Skye Warren
Release Date: January 31, 2017

The power of pleasure…
Gabriel Miller took everything from me. My family. My innocence. My home. The only thing I have left is the determination to get back what’s mine.
He thinks he’s beaten me. He thinks he’s won. What he doesn’t realize is that every pawn has the chance to become a queen.
And the game has only just begun.
THE KNIGHT is book two in the Endgame series from New York Times bestselling author Skye Warren about revenge and seduction in the game of love.








I love this series and this book.  The Knight is the second book in Skye Warren's End Game series.  It continues the story of Avery and Gabriel.  The Knight is definitely not a standalone.  You need to read this series in order.  And you'll want to read it.  So go read The Pawn now and then pick up The Knight.  I don't want to give anything away, but I will say that in The Knight we get some resolution.  We learn more about what Gabriel is doing and why.  We learn more about Avery's family.  And most important, the relationship between Avery and Gabriel continues.  It changes some, but there is more of a relationship now.

At the end of the book you're left with more questions, but that just makes me want to read more.  

As I already said, I loved this book.  It's dark, romance, mystery, thriller - a little of everything and it's SOOOOO GOOD!

I give The Knight FIVE STARS!

The price of survival...
Gabriel Miller swept into my life like a storm. He tore down my father with cold retribution, leaving him penniless in a hospital bed. I quit my private all-girl's college to take care of the only family I have left.
There's one way to save our house, one thing I have left of value.
My virginity.
A forbidden auction...
Gabriel appears at every turn. He seems to take pleasure in watching me fall. Other times he's the only kindness in a brutal underworld.
Except he's playing a deeper game than I know. Every move brings us together, every secret rips us apart. And when the final piece is played, only one of us can be left standing.

I’m safe in the ivory tower Gabriel Miller made for me. That’s what he says. Enemies lurk outside, waiting to strike. An army of enemies held back by these walls.
Except some animal instinct warns me the danger is much closer. It’s already here. Is Gabriel Miller my protector or my enemy? Is this house a castle or a cage?
There’s nowhere for me to go, no one left for me to trust.
No escape from a past determined to capture its prize.
