Review: Accidentally Hers


Book Review: Accidentally Hers, Jamie Beck


✩✩


When ruggedly sexy backcountry guide Grey Lowell moves to Sterling Canyon, Colorado, after buying the ski-expedition company Backtrax, his plans don’t include romance. Still, it’s fun to look—especially across a crowded restaurant at a beauty he dubs “Bambi.” But all his plans change later that night when he’s injured by a drunk driver.
Physical therapist Avery Randall is shocked to learn that Grey’s the man her brother struck with his car, and even more stunned when he arrives at the clinic expecting her help. Despite her reservations and Grey’s silly new nickname for her, Avery agrees to work with him, and passion begins to simmer. Yet with his livelihood at stake, Grey must make tough decisions that could hurt Avery and her family. Before long, Avery’s loyalties are tested, and the choices she and Grey each make may cost them their chance at lasting love.


Genre: contemporary romance

Publishing date: October 2015

Mature content: yes

Review: I loved everything about this book right until the very end, which felt a bit rushed, hence the four-star rating instead of five.

I liked that the romance between the two main characters develops along a period of several months, because those novels where people meet, fall in love and live happily ever after in just a few days somehow never seem very realistic. I liked the a-bit-less-than perfect male hero - Grey's dyslexia may have prevented him from getting higher education, but he's still fighting to make his dreams come true and comes across as a really inspiring character. And I liked the way Grey and Avery deal with their physical attraction through a series of difficult situations that could have kept them apart but instead make them - and their love - grow stronger. Avery was my least favorite of the pair for most of the book, but she redeemed herself at the very end. 

 

This is a lovely romance story that you will not want to put down, so I recommend it. It is also the first book I've read by Jamie Beck but I will certainly come back for more.

Happy readings,
