Review

I really enjoyed ACCIDENTALLY IN LOVE by USA Today Bestselling author, Laura Drewry.  You clearly know love is coming, but you have no idea how and it ends up being a bumpy road with a few surprises thrown in.

Fans of Jill Shalvis and Susan Mallery will love Laura Drewry’s warm and humorous new Friends First romance, a sexy romp about a good cop and a bad girl playing hard to get.

Ellie Palmer and cops don’t mix, and getting pulled over by Officer Brett Hale—again—doesn’t help. Neither does being forced to take a safe-driving course with him. Brett’s by-the-book attitude leaves Ellie ice-cold, and his rock-hard body won’t change that. Still, the more time she spends with the guy, the more she finds herself warming up to his unexpected charms.

Even though Brett comes off like a boy scout, Ellie has sparked something he wants badly enough to get him to rethink his past mistakes. But when her ex shows up, Brett makes it his mission to keep Ellie safe in the here and now. His gut tells him the guy’s trouble, and Ellie must agree, because she doesn’t complain when Brett pulls her close. To keep her safe, though, he’ll have to choose between breaking her heart . . . and breaking the rules.

Here are a few of my favorite quotes. You would need to read the book to fully understand where they are coming from, but I wanted to let you have a peek at the author’s writing.

Brett blinked down at her, clearly unamused. ‘License. And. Registration. Please.’ Sh.t. The last time he’d spoken to her in that tone, she’d wound up in the back of his police cruiser for almost half an hour while he took his sweet time running her license through the system. While she’d steamed back there on the molded plastic seat, Dudley Do-Right sat in the front seat plunking away on his computer and completely ignoring her. For all she knew, he could have been leveling up on Candy Crush or updating his Facebook status. The only time he acknowledged her was when she told him she could tap out Morse code faster than he could type. And even then, his only response was a slow turn of his head and his usual flat stare.

‘So what’d you do?’ ‘You mean after I stopped screaming and yelling and carrying on like a three-year-old?’ ‘She really did,’ Gail said quietly, with a firm nod. ‘You should’ve heard her.’ ‘Yeah.’ Ellie could hear the amusement in Brett’s voice even though he didn’t laugh. ‘After that.’

‘So I’m going to go upstairs and have a nice long shower now.’ ‘But you showered before you left this morning.’ ‘I know, but this time I’ll be trying to scrub images off of my retinas, so you might not see me for a while.’

This time it was three heads in synchronized shaking. No answers, no ideas, no nothing until Regan snorted really loud over a laugh, almost like she’d been holding it in for so long it just wouldn’t be contained another second. ‘Sorry, Ellie, I just can’t believe my a.. you haven’t had sex with him yet. I mean, come on—it’s no wonder he’s so pis…ed!’

I know I used a few explicit quotes, so forgive me if your sensibilities have been compromised. The author has a great sense of humor and one of the quotes reads completely out of context – it was to entice you to read.

The writing is fantastic and I just thoroughly enjoyed the book.

ACCIDENTALLY IN LOVE is a sweet lovable story. It has friendship and romance and humor – good, funny humor. The writing is fantastic and I just thoroughly enjoyed the book.

I’m giving the book a five-star rating and it deserves every one. I can’t wait to read more from this author.

About the Reviewer

Donna McBroom-Theriot
Writer. Book Reviewer. Southern Lady. Connoisseur of Chocolate. My Life is like an episode of "I love Lucy!" I'm a writer, book reviewer, and a Southern Lady who loves her Sweet Tea. My blog, My Life. One Story at a Time. is where I've been writing short stories since 2009. As luck would have it, the very first short story I wrote was published within months of my writing it. This quote pretty much sums me up: "Deep in my heart, I know there’s no promise I’ll be free from trouble in this life. In fact, I’m usually either getting out of trouble, currently in trouble, or about to meet trouble around the next corner." Well, you know that old saying, "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions" - that road is usually the one I'm on! And, as much I used to mock (we all grow up eventually) the Cajun dialect, 15 years ago, I found myself marrying the sweetest Cajun boy - complete with the requisite white trawl boots and a trawl boat. I love writing stories about the South and life with our two German Shepherds, and the four kids who meander in and out of our lives as they live their own journeys. Most days you'll find me out on the front porch swing, with the dogs at my feet, a tall glass of sweet iced tea close by, and a good book. It's what life in the South is all about. - See more at: http://mylife-in-stories.blogspot.com/p/about-me.html#sthash.VAmp18XE.dpuf
