If Cascade was a real town, let me just say that while you are reading this, I would be packing to move there and never moving back. They sure grow them hot there. Whew.

If you've read Kissing the Maid if Honor, (you haven't ? Why not ??) you would have already had a glimpse of the type of men who populate Cascade. I'm mean Luke Watters......holy hotness. But I can honestly say that Shane outshines Luke in this story.

Yes we see Sela and Luke, as well as Erin from the previous book, but this is a

Kagan Owens is desperately trying to hide her true identity after she leaves her past life in New York and her overbearing father to try to make a go of it on her own merits. When a guy from her past tracks her down she panics and says her boyfriend happens to be the town's resident playboy and natural flirt: Shane Sullivan. Using his unexpected role to his advantage as he has been crushing on Kagan, he plays along willingly and as she meets his family and friends he decides to take a week's vac ...more

I do love a small town romance and after really enjoying Kissing the Maid of Honor I was looking forward to going back to Cascade in Her Accidental Boyfriend. Once again Robin Bielman hit the spot and written a sweet, funny contemporary romance with great main characters and a wonderful supporting cast.

Kagan left New York to get away from her over controlling father and his plans to marry her off to one of their mutual colleagues. She is sick of always being told what to do and of working long h

Her Accidental Boyfriend was a sweet, flirty, romantic read that I loved being given the chance to read. I hadn’t read the first book in the series prior to reading this one, so it’s definitely a book that you can read out of order. It stands by itself nicely.

Kagan (I love that name!) is currently running from her life. Her father wants her to settle down with a guy she isn’t romantically interested in at all, and he won’t listen to what she wants. To try to force him to listen to her, she takes

Kagan has ran away from her life in New York to pursue her own dreams. Working for her father has been suffocating and it doesn't help any that her father has set up an arranged marriage with a man she doesn't love. While on her journey she meets the sexy Shane Sullivan, who she just so happens to pretend he is her boyfriend so that her current "fiancé" will leave her alone.

Her Accidental Boyfriend is everything I look for in a romance. A swoon worthy guy, a lovely heroine to be jealous of, and

HER ACCIDENTAL BOYFRIEND is part of the Secret Wishes Novel Series. Honestly, the series title really does sum of the books in the series very well. HER ACCIDENTAL BOYFRIEND is the story of a woman whose wish is to find out what she really wants out of life and in the process finds the one man who will make it his mission to watch her spread her wings and become the woman she is meant to be.

A very happy 5 star review

As a fan of contemporary romance I was pretty certain I was going to enjoy reading Robin Bielman's Her Accidental Boyfriend. It has the typical elements that I love: a hot guy with history of being a player, an intriguing, beautiful, but not full of herself heroine, and an arrangement that has them eventually falling for each other. But what I loved about Her Accidental Boyfriend was the well written execution in bringing those elements together.

My wishes came true with this book. Robin Bielman has given us a perfect second outing to Cascade with a wonderful storyline, new characters as well as those we already love, wit, humour and romantic touching moments balanced with those that tug on your heartstrings a little. I devoured it.

Today I finished Her Accidental Boyfriend by Robin Bielman which is the second book in A Secret Wishes Novel. All right, so this book is super adorable. However, it's easy when to find a super adorable book in the Bliss line.

Anyway; at the end of Kissing the Maid of Honor, we see in the Cascade Gazette Shane Sullivan cozying up to a certain waitress. Well, that waitress was Kagan Owens. So, we get to read Shane and Kagan's relationship.

Once again, another Bliss book that left me weak in the knees and swooning over the chemistry between Kagan and Shane. It's impossible not to feel good as you read this book. It's also impossible to not swoon over Shane - I mean, helllllo. ;)
First, I admired Kagan for following her own dreams and going against a parents wishes. She shows incredible strength and that is something to admire. She comes from a life of privilege, yet doesn't come across as snotty or uptight in the least bit. And Shan

Loved reading Shane & Jelly Belly's story! Cascade was the perfect setting, with beautiful scenery, engaging secondary characters, and lots of small-town charm. I thought this story moved along at just the right pace. No rush to the HEA! Instead, we saw 2 people, already on friendly terms, come together via the "accidental" route. Kagan needs a boyfriend, so she can convince her estranged father that she has a reason to stay away from New York. Shane just happens to be around when this all h ...more

When I asked to review this book, I had second thoughts. I kept thinking, "Did I make a mistake requesting this book?" It sounded like one of those cliche, poor-rich-girl books where the main character comes from a wealthy family and whines about "daddy isn't paying enough attention to me because he would rather work 24/7 and make tons of money so I can live off my designer shoe collection."

I was wrong. I admit it. I loved it. It wasn't what I'd consider a hot and heavy romance novel filled with

This is the second book of secret wishes series and as always Robin knows how to write a good romantic story.

We've met Shane in the first book as he is Sela's brother. Shane is a playboy, a serious flirt and workaholic.
He never expected to fall in love as he is afraid of his past mistakes. Kagan on the other hand has run away from her life in New York and her father.

I received an ARC by Reading Bliss for an honest review.

I enjoyed just about everything about this book. The only thing I didn’t enjoy was that it ended!! The story of Kagan Donaldson and Shane Sullivan was sweet, witty, and one I easily fell in love with!

Kagan moves across the country to a small town named Cascade to escape her father and his outrageous demands. Here, she is able to reinvent herself, create an identity that isn’t known to the masses. She

I loved book one of Bielman's Secret Wishes series, "Kissing the Maid of Honor," and was lucky enough to beta read book two, "Her Accidental Boyfriend." Kagan and Shane captured my attention in "Kissing" when he (boldly!) took the pen tucked behind her ear and wrote his phone number on her palm. I couldn't wait to see how their relationship evolved! "Her Accidental Boyfriend" did not disappoint! Kagan's not quite the carefree, footloose waitress she first appears. Nor is Shane the relentless pla ...more

Adorable continuation of Bielman's Secret Wishes series.

Shane is so heartwarmingly romantic at times that I felt like I was going to melt. He is all in as Kagan's pretend boyfriend and as such it's not surprising that she's so confused by her growing feelings.

The two of them truly make each other better people by opening their partner's eyes to how fantastic they really are. Shane helps Kagan see how truly kind she is as well as how talented she is creatively. Kagan in turn helps Shane realize

I have been looking forward to this book since the moment I finished Kissing the Maid of Honor. I loved Luke and Sela and I couldn't wait to get Shane's story. He was one of those guys that I just knew I was going to love, and I was really excited to get to know him better. Her Accidental Boyfriend definitely did not disappoint, and I loved watching as Shane and Kagan fell in love. This one was a lot of fun to read, and I read it pretty quickl
Robin's New Adult books are such fun to read. You can count on her characters having personalities that really shine and the plot keeping a steady pace while building up a strong connection between the couple. Healthy platonic friendships also get a starring role in the Secret Wishes stories and the small town Cascade setting is just cozy enough to be wistful without inducing sugar shock or tripping my busybody neighbor irritations. This is the second book in the series that starts off with the ...more

All Kagan wants to get escape from her old life and make a new one where no one even knows her name. She's a waitress, life is simple and she loves her job. Shane is a frequent customer who can't get his eyes off that waitress. When a person from her past life comes for her she tries to avoid by saying Shane's her man. To pull it off they must fool everyone, but its getting harder and harder. Now its the point they're not sure whats real and whats not.

Kagan Owens has escaped to the small town of Cascade to get away from her overbearing, controlling father and the life she had in New York AND the fiance she was being forced to marry. She's happy working in a bar and making jewelry and she's even made a couple close friends. The last thing she wants, though, is a relationship...

Shane Sullivan is the town's flirt, a wrecker of women's hearts. He's on his way up in his job and doesn't need any complications to hold him back. He enjoys his women.

I read the first book in the Secret Wishes series where we were introduced to the hero and heroine. Just those tiny interactions made me realize how much I wanted to read their story. In some ways I thought this book was even better that the 1st. The banter between the two was hilarious. If there was a smart ass contest, Kagan would win.

Kegan Owens told a teeny tiny white lie to get her father’s lackey Brett off her back and out-of-town. Luckily, playboy Shane Sullivan played along, pretending to be her boyfriend. To their surprise, Brett doesn’t leave town, and Kegan and Shane are stuck in a ruse. Except, it doesn’t feel like they’re pretending anymore…
