Emmy thinks her boss Kyle Sterling of Sterling Corporations is a jerk.
So, she sleeps with him.
Emmy tries to put the mistake behind her, but then finds herself snowed in with Kyle. As the snow builds, so does the heat in the house between the two. The problem is that Kyle has a steady girlfriend that he is unwilling to break up with. Emmy cuts Kyle off and starts dating Luke. Even as their relationship takes off, Emmy is finding Kyle hard to shake. He is blatant in his feelings and desires for Emmy, putting her in an awkward situation. She tries hard to resist Kyle, but deep down inside Emmy's motives are shady. When Emmy succumbs to her hidden feelings for Kyle without setting Luke free, devastating consequences ensue.
In addition to her two men, Emmy daydreams about doing violent things to her loud mouthed, opinionated mother.
With some humor and sarcasm, and of course, some tequila, Emmy's world will flip upside down as she deals with the results of "accidentally on purpose" falling for two men at once.
This story is about one woman who fell for a man who couldn’t give her what she needed, when she fell in love with another man who could. Can we say love triangle? Yes, yes we can. It’s about struggling to do the right thing, when it’s the hardest hurdle you’ve had to jump. Love hurts and love isn’t always right. Love causes us to rationalize crazy decisions, for love knows no boundaries.
“Anyone who can rationalize love through intellect, has no idea what love is, for it is an emotion, and cannot be rationalized. For love is crazy.”-Christopher Bombardier.
Meet Emmy, hardworking assistant to Kyle Sterling, AKA the handsome Douche Puddle. She’s slinging back drinks the local bar (that she owns) and in walks her boss. She’s wasted and hoping that he will walk away and never return. No, of course she’s not that lucky, just what she wanted to escape has now joined her. Lord have mercy, she begins having fun with Kyle. Next thing she knows oops, she’s had a one night stand with the biggest douche of all douches. That one night changes everything for Emmy and Kyle. I think you can pretty much figure out what happens next with these two. However, it’s not a fairy tale relationship when you have to keep it secret. Several snow storms later you feel a connection with these characters. You can’t help who you fall in love with. (Oh my…) And although you know that it’s not okay to put Emmy in the corner, you still tend to feel for the relationship. I found myself wishing that he would stop being a twatwaffle and stand up for himself.
Emmy and Kyle end up on the outs and in walks Luke (sigh) the handsome and persistent lawyer.Sweet, kind and funny. She decides she’s going to give Luke a chance and move on from Kyle. Developing a normal out in the open, and serious relationship, love starts blossom. Their quirky, witty banter and fun loving personalities make falling in love with their relationship simple. He’s the nice guy that would treat her right, love her until the he couldn’t anymore. He would give her the world. She knows he’s a good one but she can’t seem to let go of hope for Kyle. Isn’t that how it happens? They say the nice guy finishes first. I don’t know, I tend to think they get the short end of the stick.
“It happened accidentally on purpose-my heart accidentally started loving two men, but I purposely (and stupidly) acted on it instead of walking away from one of them.”
Let’s not forget the Emmy is being slightly selfish and is a confused woman. She can’t decide between the two. She decides to have her cake and eat it too. She fears letting one go and keeping the other. She makes some pretty craptastic decisions. A WHAMMY is discovered and all hell breaks loose. Emmy is now faced to deal with her decisions and see them for what they were, STUPID. She comes face to face with the ugly truth. She had what she wanted in her grasp and she single handedly destroyed everything, by hanging on to something that may never have been there. So, she sets out to right her wrongs or at least do the right thing for a very important person in her life.
“Sometimes I think you are not being the best you can be.”
Accidentally on Purpose was a great read. You grow with the character and fall in love with her men, just a she would. You feel her shame and disgust at what has become her life. You feel her strength when she comes to terms with what needs to be done. I admit yes, I wanted to smack her around. However, I really tried to put myself in her shoes and let the story take hold. Nobody is perfect everyone makes mistakes. Sometimes, we have to learn the hard way. Sometimes, we royally mess things up. BUT once in a while, we find our moment to fix the wrongs. My heart ached for all of them. I sometimes felt sorry for even Kyle. Most of all my though, my heart hurt for Luke.Redemption is a beautiful thing. I enjoyed the journey, it felt real and I connected with the story. I recommend this for those romance readers who love a complicated ride….I give it 5 confused by love stars.
