  • Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession
    5 breath of fresh air stars May have mild Spoilers "Turn around and walk away from me over there, along the sidewalk. I want to see you from behind." A lazy grin crept across his face. "I bet you do." - Avery and Grey I really enjoyed this book. Accidentally Hers is the first book in the Sterling Canyon series and I really hope there will be many more to come. This is my first time reading anything by Jamie Beck, and I will for sure be reading m...

    ARC requested through Netgalley, and kindly provided by Amazon Publishing in exchange for a honest review.I loved every minute of this book. This was a truly unique story that hooked me from the get go. A romance set with a backdrop where the love interests are pitted on different sides of a criminal/legal battle made for a winner.The obstacles that Grey and Avery faced were not your typical contrived and cliched ones that have been boring me to ...

    arc kindly provided by the author/publisher and Netgalley2.5 starsIt's not easy for me to write a negative review. As a creative in a different arena, I understand how much goes into expressing yourself in such a public way, you are laying yourself bare for all to see and comment on, and I appreciate the courage that takes. Having said that, we all look for different things in our books and this is just my opinion, which goes against many of the ...

    Book one of the Sterling Canyon series but Jamie Beck. Grey is out one night collecting takeaway when his eyes meet Avery but doesn't approach her. On his way home he's knocked down by Avery's brother and seriously injured. Avery is the only orthopaedic physical therapist in the small town and agrees to help Grey even though he could be the reason he ends up in jail. Absolutely lovely book. I loved that Grey and Avery had the hardest start and st...

    Read the full review on Bookaholics Not-So-Anonymous.Note: This ARC was provided by Montlake Romance in exchange for an honest review.I'm going to come right out and say it: I did not like Avery. For someone that Grey believed was intelligent, she lacked common sense and wanted her cake and eat it too. Yes, she understood where Grey was coming from in terms of a potential lawsuit, but you can't serve two masters and this woman was torn between he...
  • Kerry Richardson
    This book was well written and I liked the sound of the storyline. However, it fell a bit short for me. I really didn't like Avery very much, she was a mature and intelligent woman and I get that she was kind of stuck in the middle between her family and Grey regarding the financial fallout of the accident but I just couldn't warm up to her. As for Grey, he was too good for Avery and I think maybe just a bit too nice. I also think that everyone s...
  • Bette Hansen
    Adored this book! I thought the writing and storyline were fresh and unique and I adored the characters. Grey is amazing. Avery is a little annoying at times but in the end I really liked her.And the beautiful setting of the Colorado mountains came to life with the wonderfully descriptive writing. While their attraction to each other is strong, the issues standing between them are difficult at best. Family loyalty and future happiness are put to ...
  • Trish R.
    Barely ok for me..Let me just start by saying I wasn’t going to get this book because of the stupid looking guy on the front. WHY anyone would put a male model on the front of a book that looks that stupid is beyond me. I associate my hero with the pic I see one the front, if there is one, but I really couldn’t this time. Between ridiculous hats and men with buns in their hair and men with horribly bushy beards I’m going to stop reading boo...
  • vicki zimmerman
    Not greatCertainly an interesting concept. H is struck while on his motorcycle, by h's drunk brother. Then begins the problems that arise between them. Summit meetings have been resolved, with less problems than these two have.A calm, relaxing, enjoyable afternoon romance, this is not.More like the Dr. Seuss character whose tail was entangled in unsolvable knots. I didn't think it would ever end. It finally does, with less fireworks, more fizzle,...

    This is the first book by the author, Jamie Beck, that I have had the pleasure of reading and I loved it! The blurb really drew me in and I was not disappointed! I found the storyline to be fresh and unique, unlike any romance novel I have read before. The characters were highly likable and you could definitely sense the instant attraction and sexual chemistry between the two.This is a romance set with a backdrop where the two main characters, Gr...
  • Shirley Frances
    *sigh* I hate it when I love certain aspects of the story and end up not loving the story as a whole.What initially drew me to this story was the concept of these two individuals finding love while facing such uncertain and unique circumstances. I thought it would make for a fantastic story if and when they achieved their happily ever after. But for me, the in-between sort of killed that illusion.I liked Avery fine. I wasn't won over initially, b...
  • ♡ Jeri's Book Attic ♡
    Accidentally Hers was my first book by Jamie Beck and I am honestly not sure if it was the writing style or simple just this plotline that didn’t work out for me. I want to believe that it was the plotline so I can give the author another chance as I really liked the idea behind this book.I can not even tell anymore how or when precisely the story lost me but after an intriguing start there were simply to many times that I found myself actually...
  • Eleanore June
    It had a strong start but holy heck did it take FOREVER. I feel like I know a lot more about liability insurance now, and that's not really something I look for in a Romance.Avery started off as a strong character but by the end I didn't like her at all. Grey was fine, but I never felt connected to him.There was so much unnecessary detail and repeated situations that just bogged the story down rather than moved it along. Plus more than a few lose...

    I do understand the loyal to the family, but I m not that understand that, if u r the only one who is loyal, do u still go on?Grey is a honorable man, he was in bad luck, the accident, broken knee, business failed, mountain of bills because the accident. Yeah, grey is the victim, not the one to blame.Those r ANDY, who drunk n drove, caused the accident that hurt Grey.Avery may be a smart woman with Ph.D. Degree in PT, but she was selfish, she may...
  • Jill Sorenson
    I liked it. Great premise, believable conflict and strong execution. It was a bit too nicey-nice for me. Heroine doesn't approve of swearing, hero has a sweet tooth. She wouldn't agree to date him for months and then was reluctant to sleep with him. Come on, girl! Get some!! I wanted more steam and spontaneity and mental lusting during PT appts. I liked that that hero struggled financially and with dyslexia. All of the details (legal, ski, physic...
  • Katherine Ong
    I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. I have to admit that I had a hard time putting this book down once I got started. The characters were so real and they way Grey was written...well let's just say he is one handsome guy so how could you put the book down! The story is very well written and each character was developed in a way that when the book was over, I felt like I knew the characters. I certainly can't wait to p...
  • Shari
    So enjoyed the journey of the relationship of Avery and Grey set in a small ski town of Colorado. Both with previous failed relationships and not looking for a new relationship. Loved how family is so important to Avery and how Grey is very fair to her family and not taking them down. Loved the secondary characters, Kelsey and Trip hoping for more from them. Great character development. Loved the backdrop of Colorado scenery. This is my first bo...

  • Alyssa
    Decent read, though didn't feel quite long enough. I'm also betting that the author worked in real estate law. :)
  • Abi
    I love Jamie Beck, great stories, characters. I love the way she lets you in on both the minds of him and her. Overall a great book!
  • Connie
    This was a great story line for a book. Grey and Avery see each other at a restaurant and both feel an instant attraction, but after Grey leaves he is hit by a drunk driver who happens to be Avery's brother. Avery becomes Grey's physical therapist and they are very drawn to each other but with the circumstances of the accident hanging over them it had some tension. Grey handles the situation beautifully and is always very honest with Avery. Avery...
  • Eleonora
    3 stars to Grey and Trip, 1 star to Avery and his brother/friends/parents. I hope Trip's story will be better than this
  • Bob
    A true love storyIf only we all could love with such passion and trust. It is only a story but filled with lessons of love and living.
  • Maureen
    Skip this oneThe story is average. The language is execrable. There is too much sexual license. I had to skip a lot of pages. I will not be reading the remainder of the series

    Good bookHighly recommend this book! It was a fun and easy read. I look forward to reading the rest of the books in the series.
  • Helyce
    Reviewed here first: was the blurb that caught my attention for this book and made me curious to see how the author could spin a believable love story between a woman whose drunk driving brother injures a man who she’d end up being the physical therapist for. Add to that their intense attraction for each other and I couldn’t imagine how it could possibly work. How do you separate your familial obliga...
  • Sharon McCreadie
    This book irritated the f*ck out of me!!! LOVED Grey (hence the 2 stars) but Avery done my head in - she had no backbone whatsoever!!
