Review: Accidentally On Purpose by L.D. Davis


"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."




I really didn't know what I was getting myself into when I started this. I knew it was a love triangle story but I didn't know it was a heart wrenching mind fuck!  It's been awhile since I read a story that drew such emotions from me. This one surely was the icing on the cake. I FREAKING loved it too!

Emmy is as strong and confident as a heroine comes these days. She's s modern woman with the right mix of snark and humor. I love her. Watching her downward spiral of self destruction was hard. I felt it though. I saw how she got sucked in. I saw how she didn't see an out. I saw the moment she realized things probably wouldn't end well.

"He was my drug, and I his."

The men had me so conflicted.  Kyle is confident, sexy and the proverbial forbidden fruit. Everyone hates him, even Emmy, but behind the scenes he's completely different.  Luke is the guy that you marry.  He's good looking, sweet, loyal and has an enormous...Do I really need to spell this out?  How do you choose here?  See, I too, like Emmy wanted them both.  Things are not that easy when you add in 2 other significant others, the work place, a blackmailing rich family, alcohol and obsession.  This has all the drama of your favorite soap opera!

"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."

So at this point you are probably saying, why the eff would I read that?  Because it was executed flawlessly. I never got bored or mad at Emmy. I wanted every little emotion that  L.D. Davis gave me. I loved the pace of the story. The revealing of details in small doses was smart. I loved that I was still finding out bits of important info up to the end.
The characters were fantastic. One of my faves was Emmy's mom. Always direct, blunt and hysterical. I loved the setting. (seriously, Philly, Main line and Jersey...this is where I'm from!)
I loved to hate the villains in this story and I learned to love the hero!!!!  5 amazing stars from me!
