review || ACCIDENTALLY YOURS by Jamie Beck

Montlake Romance | October 6, 2015 | Contemporary Romance
Sterling Canyon, book 1


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.

In a nutshell, I found this to be a cute, refreshing read -- very 'contemporary' and along the lines of Jill Shalvis and Susan Mallery. Avery and Grey's story was easy to get into, and Jamie paints scenes extremely well -- including Grey's accident. Her ability to write emotion was further exemplified by Grey's battle with the accident and his recovery process.

Avery has a tough choice to make, as does Grey, when it comes to his physical therapy, as it was her brother who struck him. There's a very delicate line these two walk on in this as there is a conflict of interest, but I felt they handled everything well.

The story was well written. However, I had a difficult time becoming 'lost' in the story and was easily pulled out to pick up another book or do something else. It was not quite what I was expecting, having purchased it right away after promoting the title for tour. That is not to say I won't pick up another Jamie Beck title -- the side characters in this story were engaging and I'm curious to see where Ms. Beck will be taking the series.
