Review - Accidentally in Love by Katy Ames

Accidentally in Love
by Katy Ames
Series: 425 Madison, Book #8
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 27, 2019

I know I can make you blush.
It’s a weird claim to fame, but a perk of my dream job: being the voice of your favorite romance audio books. Laughter, hijinks, adventure. Passion. Sweet heaven, the passion. It’s everything I could ever want. Except…
The problem with this fabulous life?
It’s all just fantasy.

Picking between Chinese and Thai delivery doesn’t count as adventure.
The bestie who always makes me laugh is thousands of miles away.
As for the hunky hero? It’s not like he’s just going to come crashing into my apartment.

Until the night a bearded stranger does exactly that…

Do the job. Get the bad guy. Go home.
Most importantly, don’t get involved.
Those are the rules. The agency’s and mine. And they work. Even better, they give me the perfect excuse to keep my distance.
The perfect escape from getting burned again. Except…

Why can’t I stop watching her?
I shouldn’t care more about what she’s doing than my target.
I shouldn’t let her distract me from the job.
And I sure as hell shouldn’t fantasize about a woman I’ll never meet.

That is, until the night I surprise us both by kicking down her apartment door. Rules or no rules, it's true that...

After all, 425 Madison Avenue is the perfect place to fall in love.

*Each story is completely standalone.

This was a fun, quick read that has both heart and some heat. With a hero who has scars – both literally and figuratively – from the past and a heroine who steps way out of her comfort zone, it was easy to get caught up in this “friends with adventures” story.

Arya is an introvert by nature, so watching her take such a leap outside of her normal routine was fun and even a bit inspiring (introverts of the world unite…but not together!). She had me laughing as she acted out her favorite scenes from the books she narrates and cheering her on as she decided to go after what she wants – namely one grumpy Ninja Lumberjack named Gavin McCord.
My best friend’s insistence I go out and meet people…
The seductive, electric pulse of my new city…
The haunted look that paled Gavin’s face before he vanished…
My increasingly irrepressible urge to have an adventure that takes place outside the pages of a book…

They’ve all combined to form the perfect storm, one that’s more likely to end with category five hurricane level destruction than a rainbow.
Gavin’s sole focus has been his job, which has allowed him to keep his distance from everyone. Of course he just can’t manage to stay away from Arya – from the first time he crashes through her door to allowing her to “find” him, you can feel his walls start to crumble. And underneath all that gruff, stay away attitude is one romantic man!

This is the 8th book in the 425 Madison Series and I loved getting to spend some time with some of the characters form the other books. Mrs. Williams played a perfect part in this book and I loved the circle of friends that Arya develops throughout the story.

Another fun read in this series that can be read as a standalone and would make a nice addition for a summer TBR!

I read this book on Kindle Unlimited.
