About ACCIDENTALLY ON PURPOSE:

There’s no such thing as a little in love . . .

Elle Wheaton’s priorities: friends, career, and kick-ass shoes. Then there’s the muscular wall of stubbornness that’s security expert Archer Hunt—who comes before everything else. No point in telling Mr. “Feels-Free Zone” that, though. Elle will just see other men until she gets over Archer . . . which should only take a lifetime . . .

There’s no such thing as a little in lust . . .

Archer’s wanted the best for Elle ever since he sacrificed his law-enforcement career to save her. Their chemistry could start the next San Francisco earthquake and he craves her 24/7, but Archer doesn’t want to be responsible for the damage. The alternative? Watch her go out with guys who aren’t him . . .

There is such a thing as . . .

As far as Archer’s concerned, nobody is good enough for Elle. But when he sets out to prove it by sabotaging her dates, she gets mad—and things get hot as hell. Now Archer has a new mission: prove to Elle that her perfect man has been here all along . . .

      EXCERPT:  
His hand caught her, long fingers wrapping around her elbow and causing all sorts of unwelcome sensations as he pulled her back around.
                “What?” she asked.
                “Waiting for my apology.”
                “Sure,” she said agreeably. “When hell freezes over.” She lifted her chin, grateful for her four-inch heels so that she could almost, kind of, not quite look him in the eyes. “I’m in charge of this building, Archer, which means I’m in charge of everything that happens in it. I’m also in charge of everyone who works for this building.”
                He cocked his head, looking amused again. “You want to be the boss of me, Elle?” he asked softly.
                I am the boss of you.”
                Now he outright smiled and her breath caught. Damn, stupid, sexy smile. And then there was The Body. Yes, she thought of it in capital letters, it deserved the respect. “If you don’t want to be walking funny tomorrow,” she said, “you’ll stop invading my personal-space bubble.”
                Complete bravado and they both knew it. She’d only been at this job for a year and it’d come as a surprise to her that he’d been in the building at all. An unfortunate coincidence. Before that it’d been years since they’d had any contact, but she still knew enough to get that no one got the better of him.
                He was quick, light on his feet, and physically strong. But that wasn’t what made him so dangerous to her. No, it was his sharp intelligence, his quick wit, how he was willing to go as dark as he needed to in order to do what he thought was right.
                And then there was the biggie—the way he had of making her feel shockingly alive.
                He did as she asked and stepped back but not before pausing to make sure they both knew who was in control here, and it most definitely wasn’t her.
                No one did intimidation like Archer, and in his line of work he could be in a coma and still intimidate everyone in the room. He had muscles on top of muscles but didn’t look beefed up like a body builder might. Instead his body seemed lean and seriously badass, with caramel skin that strayed from light to golden to mocha latte depending on what the season was, giving him a look of indeterminable origin.
                And sexiness.
                It worked for him, allowing him to fit in to just about any situation. Handy on the job, she imagined. But with her he was careful. Distant. And yet she’d seen the way he sometimes looked at her, and on the rare occasion when he’d touched her, like when he guided her through a door with his hand low on her back, he let himself linger. There was always a shocking and baffling yearning beyond both the glances and the touches.
                That, or it was all just wishful thinking.
                Not that it mattered since he still held back with her. The problem was she yearned too. Yearned for him to see her as a woman, strong and capable enough to stand at his side.
                But after what they’d been through, she knew that would never happen. She turned away, annoyed by how her entire body had gone on high alert as always, every inch of her seeming to hum beneath the surface.
                She should have just emailed him.

“I wanted to talk to you a bit more about what happened between us online,” he said, his mouth a serious straight line. “How I came to use my brother’s profile.” Ugh. “I’m pretty sure I found out everything I needed to know last night.” “I didn’t mean to lie to you, Alex.” “Once is a mistake.” I crossed my legs, kicking my black leather bootie back and forth. So I was a little aggravated. Sue me. “Months’ worth of e-mails is not. You could have introduced yourself to me, Joe, told me who you really were. You chose not to. Christ, no wonder you kept putting off meeting. I should have known something was wrong.” “You’re right. I shouldn’t try to sell you excuses.” A big sigh from my “friend.” “Truth is, I’m not used to being the bad guy. Usually I’m the one cleaning up my brother’s messes.” “Lucky me.”

This is probably my fave of the three Kylie Scott books I've read, and I reckon that's because of Joe - he's a real sweetie. The other thing I'm loving about this series is the setting - Coeur d'Alene sounds like such a great place, I'd love to visit there! And the building housing the Dive Bar, tattoo parlour, and music shop sounds so cool - all it needs is a coffee house/bookstore, right?

"Twist" opens with Alex going out on a limb by traveling from Seattle to Coeur d'Alene to surprise Eric Collins for his birthday. She's made a real connection with Eric via an online dating site, emailing back and forth for months. Only, she doesn't realize it's actually Joe she's been emailing, not Eric, until she shows up at the Dive Bar and it's too late to avoid making a fool of herself in front of Eric, Joe, and all their friends.

I did feel sorry for Alex. I don't know if she was agoraphobic, exactly, but she definitely was an introvert, preferring to hang out with her one friend and working in isolation from home. It was extremely difficult for her to put herself out there enough to see Eric in person, and then to find out he wasn't the person she thought he was? Humiliating and devastating!

The real show stopper here for me, though, was Joe. Big, masculine, chivalrous, a tad shy, but totally competent mixing a drink, renovating apartments, or seducing a woman - namely Alex - what's not to love?  It was really great to see the connection between Joe and Alex when they were working together to renovate the building, too. I know of marriages falling apart when it comes to renovations, so the fact that Joe and Alex could work together in harmony proves a lot when it comes to the strength of their relationship.

Unfortunately, not everything can be smooth sailing. There was a point in the book where things took a tragic turn, and while I don't want to give anything away, I will say that this was one of the main things I had issue with. It's not that I wish it didn't happen, it's actually that I didn't like how the event was written. Everything happened so abruptly and without sufficient detail that it had me shaking my head a bit. That said, the story as a whole had me fully engaged and once I'd started reading, I had a very difficult time stopping!

If you're a Kylie fan, I don't think you'll be disappointed in "Twist" - it's got all the ingredients I look for in a quick, steamy read. And if you're not a fan yet, perhaps you better give this series a try. Definitely start with "Dirty", though, because you won't want to miss out on any of these characters' stories! 

My rating: 3.5 stars!
