New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jill Shalvis is back with the third installment of her smart and sexy Heartbreaker Bay series, ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE (Avon books, Mass Market; ISBN: 9780062448064; $7.99; on sale January 24, 2017).
The series chronicles the lives and loves of a close-knit group of friends in the gorgeous and vibrant city of San Francisco, and ACCIDETNALLY ON PURPOSE is the eagerly anticipated story of Elle Wheaton and Archer Hunt. Readers love nothing more than a good enemies (well, frenemies in this case) to lovers tale and with this one, Shalvis checks every box of her signature writing style: humor, heart and (lots of) heat!
Elle Wheaton’s priorities are simple: friends, career, and kick-ass shoes. And then there’s the muscular wall of stubbornness that’s security expert Archer Hunt—who comes before everything else. But there’s no point in telling Mr. “Feels-Free Zone” that, though. Elle will just have to see other men until she gets over Archer . . . which should only take a lifetime . . .
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. But as far as Archer’s concerned, nobody is good enough for Elle. And 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.
Sparkling with witty banter, colorful side-characters, and swoon-worthy moments, Shalvis has outdone herself with ACCIDETNALLY ON PURPOSE. And as RT Book Reviews aptly put it, the book is “another unforgettable romance set in San Francisco. The third book in the Heartbreaker Bay series is a lot of fun and just plain enjoyable to read.”
