I am beyond thrilled to be participating in the Accidentally on Purpose Blog Tour! Whereas, I don’t typically participate in these, I absolutely had to share this book you all! I may be trying my hand at writing, but I am first and foremost an avid reader!
I first read Accidentally on Purpose by L.D. Davis back in January and I was NOT disappointed! This book had steam, it had angst, and it had a few twists that I did not see coming.
The book starts with Kyle finding Emmy at a bar. The proceed to both get drunk and stumble back to her house where they proceed to get down and dirty. I loved the way Emmy and Kyle danced around each other in the beginning. And then when they do get together, it was fantastic. And I have to admit, they were quite funny drunk.
“Who lives in a pineapple under your jeans?” He sang softly. “SpongeBob booty pants!”
After deciding it was a one-time thing, Emmy finds herself snowed in with Kyle that weekend. This is where things get complicated. See, not only is Kyle her boss, but he also has a long-term girlfriend. Despite these facts, you see them both falling for each other.
Enter Luke. And boy is look something to fawn over. Luke is a lawyer at the Sterling Corp. and has crushed on Emmy for years. When she finally accepts his offer for a date, its initially to try and get Kyle out of her head. What she doesn’t expect is to like Luke as much as she does.
Not only is Luke swoon worthy but he wants it all with Emmy, which is something Kyle isn’t prepared to give her.
“I don’t want you to think that’s all I want from you.”
“What else do you want from me?”
“Everything,” he whispered and brushed his lips against mine.
Of course, picking on isn’t easy. Kyle is like a drug to Emmy. She can’t get enough of him. She loves him and finds herself settling with him, even though she knows Luke is the more stable choice and deserves better from her.
I can’t give away too many more details without ruining the story for you. Let’s just say, Emmy is faced with some very difficult decisions. It was hard to watch her be so weak and waiver in her decisions, but I think she acted the way most of us would in these situations. Throughout the whole ordeal, she found pieces of herself being stripped away. She wasn’t the same strong, fierce, independent woman she felt she was before.
You watch her struggle to find herself again and to make a better life after the fallout of loving two men simultaneously. And in the end, I think she ended up exactly where she was meant to be, it was just a rocky road to get there. You really see her grow up and take control of her life.
