I jumped into book two of Portia Da Costa’s Accidental trilogy immediately after finishing book one. I’ve been a fan of Portia for several years and looked forward to reading this trilogy, so much so that I hung on until book three was available so I could read all three back to back.

Book one was an excellent read and a great set up for a longer tale. If you haven’t read book one, then this review might be a tad spoilery — so look away now. In The Accidental Mistress, Lizzie Aitchison, mistaken

I loved this book even more then the first one, them getting together as a couple was perfect. The sex scenes were so hot, I loved how well the BDSM scenes were written. John was so dominant, so caring, I loved the gifts he would buy her and how he would help her in other ways behind the scenes, so sneaky but so smart. Lizzie was fun, carefree, loving, and still strong, I really liked her in this book even though I didn't like when she would question if she was good enough for John. I cannot sta ...more

When Lizzie Aitchison first met John Smith in the Lawns Bar of the Waverley Grange Hotel, she didn't realise that John thought she was an escort in search for a client. Lizzie enjoys a fiery relationship with John, her gorgeous and incredibly rich older man. John seems to have a dark side and a past he wont talk about. But being seduced by a billonaire will Lizzie ever be more than a rich man's mistress?

I feel deeply for Lizzie, her heart is breaking and you can see that she has truly fallen in love with John. As John returns to her their love grows. This is amazing story full of secrets to be revealed. Cannot wait for the third book!

a little bit monoton in the begining until in the middle of story. The conflict and revelation in the end of this book save the book itself.

This book is much better then the first, and very deserving of a 5 star review.

After a few weeks apart, John comes running back to be with Lizzie, who has been just as miserable as he has these past weeks.
This time however instead of everything being about sex (which is amazing when we get to it by the way), we actually learn about John's troubling past.
We meet a set of new characters, John's brother Tom, the mysterious Rose along with Hannah, and lets not forget Sholto.

We have some very sweet a

It takes a very specific sort of erotic book to get me going and Ms Da Costa got it spot on here for me. There’s a real storyline between fairly tasteful sex scenes, with a bit of naughtiness and spanking but nothing to disturb my sweet, innocent mind… ;)

This is the second book in the Accidental trilogy but I found it read well as a standalone novel. Lizzie has won sexy, rich John over from a “client” to a boyfriend but can she ever win his heart? And is she just another acquisition for him, to

DOUBLE WOW!

I say double WOW because part 2 of the Accidental Series is every bit as good as the first book.

In Book 2 we continue to follow the kinky antics on John & Lizzie. Plus Lizzie's roommate take a turn at finding love as well! (This reader is hoping the final book -#3- continues with their love stories as well)

In Accidental Mistress, John & Lizzie become a steady item and the reader is taken through some funny, sad and down right kinky times! The book is just awesome in my opinion

After being mistaken for a high class call girl, Lizzie and John have finally gotten together. They both finally acknowledge their feelings for one another and try to work their relationship out. John is slowly sharing things from his past with Lizzie while pushing her to further their relationship.

I love this series. John and Lizzie's passion just leap of the pages. You can feel the heat and chemistry is amazing and undeniable. There are many many steamy scenes between John and Lizzie, but wha

Tento díl mi už přišel o ničem, prostě vytěžíme z prvního dílu. Vše už je vlastně hepy a tak je toto takové cukrátkové: Lizzie a John se milují, chodí spolu, užívají si hrátek a to včetně switchování;-). Teda jo, je tam drámo, protože John se bojí "miluju tě" říct nahlas, ale řekne. A aby to nebylo tak až úplně moc rozplizlé, tak je v tomto díle fokus i na milostný život jejích spolubydlích: Shelley si koupí gigola, který ji pomůže k nejlepším orgasmům a asi se do sebe oba zamilují:-) A aby to n ...more

Oh John Smith! He's too hard on himself but Lizzie is right there to be the support that he needs. I like how this book transitions nicely into the progression of their relationship. Lizzie is finally recognizing her strength and John is listening to his heart rather than run from it. It makes sense that we get a glimpse of Brent and Shelly's lives too. This book didn't feel rushed or predictable in any way and I can only have high hopes for the last of the trilogy.

Oh bugger this so deserves way more than four stars but again the C word knocked it down to four stars. However it's flipping brilliant unfortunately I've got to wait now for the next instalment and I hate waiting!! John Smith is so bloody lovely and Lizzie is the kind of woman I want my girls to grow in to, kind, loving but sure of herself and confident. All in all (apart from the C word) it's a fabulous book that I really wish I could have given more stars to.

Have bought the first book "The accidental call girl" and this one as audio books from Audible.
I always loved Mrs. Portia da Costa but it was my first time listening to Imogen Church narrating a book. Simply brilliant! Good that I could still work around the house and listen to the book. Be aware of where you are in case you decide to listen to these book.... you may get kind of "embarrassed" and with a hot face. LOL

*spoilers* loved the story now her room mates are getting some did the jaw drop smile when I straight away caught on Tom's John's brother so sweet really hope Brent n Tom are happily together in the accidental bride. got a bit weirded when rose n John were Bessie mates but made sense in the end. always gotta have the evil witch in the story Clara! looking forward to that development. n I hope Shelley makes it good too
Katherine O'Grady
Interesting. Not exactly what I expected - Lizzie and John's relationship continues to develop, yet her roommate's lives are featured rather more than I expected. The conflict in this volume is quite thin, albeit realistic. Looking forward to volume 3, to see how this all resolves.

Bought from kobo.

3,5/5

un tome pas très concluant au final, il n'apporte pas assez à mon goût. Par contre, j'ai beaucoup aimé les passages concernant les rencontres des colocataires de Lizzie.

Tahle knížka, série, se mi v podstatě líbí. Tenhle díl byl o něco lepší než ten první, už jen proto že se do něj zakomponovalo víc příběhů. Ale stejně si myslím, že ten třetí bude nejlepší z celé série.:)

I gave this book 4 stats based on how hot this book is! Again I found myself having a difficulty getting through this book. As interesting as it was, I found myself unable to become attached to either characters.
