When ruggedly sexy backcountry guide Grey Lowell moves to Sterling Canyon, Colorado, after buying the ski-expedition company Backtrax, his plans don’t include romance. Still, it’s fun to look—especially across a crowded restaurant at a beauty he dubs “Bambi.” But all his plans change later that night when he’s injured by a drunk driver.

"Turn around and walk away from me over there, along the sidewalk. I want to see you from behind." A lazy grin crept across his face. "I bet you do." - Avery and Grey

I really enjoyed this book. Accidentally Hers is the first book in the Sterling Canyon series and I really hope there will be many more to come. This is my first time reading anything by Jamie Beck, and I will for sure be reading more books from her. I loved everything about th

It's not easy for me to write a negative review. As a creative in a different arena, I understand how much goes into expressing yourself in such a public way, you are laying yourself bare for all to see and comment on, and I appreciate the courage that takes. Having said that, we all look for different things in our books and this is just my opinion, which goes against many of the reviews on here.

ARC requested through Netgalley, and kindly provided by Amazon Publishing in exchange for a honest review.

I loved every minute of this book. This was a truly unique story that hooked me from the get go. A romance set with a backdrop where the love interests are pitted on different sides of a criminal/legal battle made for a winner.

The obstacles that Grey and Avery faced were not your typical contrived and cliched ones that have been boring me to tears lately. I seem to be in a bit of reading slu

Love can happen in the most unusual of ways. It can be beautiful, it can be magical and it can be accidental. This is a story of 2 people who meet in the most uncomfortable situation and turn it into something memorable.

Grey Lowell and Avery Randall are 2 people that have been spurned by love. But a DWI brings these two together and it is that unfortunate situation that brings a closeness, an awareness, and a spark to each other's lives. Grey is your rugged outdoors man whose injury to his k

The book does a fairly good job of exploring all of the devastating ripple effects that driving drunk and injuring someone can have. From the driver facing legal charges, a civil suit, financial impact, judgement from the small town, loss of job, unable to find another one, financial impact to the family to the impact on the injured party, loss of ability to do his very physical job, immediate financial impact, future income, risk to his business going under, and so forth. The small town setting ...more
Accidentally Hers was a really cute and quick read. It's about Avery and Grey.

Grey is new to town and Avery is a sterling canyon native. Unfortunately for these two, they meet each other after a horrible accident. Of course they see each other with a brief glance way before Grey gets hit by a drunk driver, who also just happens to be Avery's brother.

Avery is his physical therapist and if I were in her shoes I'd feel extremely guilty due to her brother being the problem that caused Grey his injur

This book was well written and I liked the sound of the storyline. However, it fell a bit short for me. I really didn't like Avery very much, she was a mature and intelligent woman and I get that she was kind of stuck in the middle between her family and Grey regarding the financial fallout of the accident but I just couldn't warm up to her. As for Grey, he was too good for Avery and I think maybe just a bit too nice. I also think that everyone seemed to pander to Andy, he broke the law and caus ...more

Book one of the Sterling Canyon series but Jamie Beck.
Grey is out one night collecting takeaway when his eyes meet Avery but doesn't approach her.
On his way home he's knocked down by Avery's brother and seriously injured.
Avery is the only orthopaedic physical therapist in the small town and agrees to help Grey even though he could be the reason he ends up in jail.
Absolutely lovely book. I loved that Grey and Avery had the hardest start and still managed to make it work. Absolutely love Trip
Fun read

Such a cute cover! I was like yes! I need this! But, yall, there was a struggle. Accidentally Hers was not my cuppa at all.

The Gist: Grey was just minding his own business when a drunk driver hit him. Turns out it's the brother of the girl who'd caught his eye. A sticky spot to be put in for sure. Especially when his injuries keep him from actually doing his job and legal matters have to be taken int

Note: This ARC was provided by Montlake Romance in exchange for an honest review.

I'm going to come right out and say it: I did not like Avery. For someone that Grey believed was intelligent, she lacked common sense and wanted her cake and eat it too. Yes, she understood where Grey was coming from in terms of a potential lawsuit, but you can't serve two masters and this woman was torn between her loyalty to her one and only brother, who she ack

Adored this book! I thought the writing and storyline were fresh and unique and I adored the characters. Grey is amazing. Avery is a little annoying at times but in the end I really liked her.
And the beautiful setting of the Colorado mountains came to life with the wonderfully descriptive writing. While their attraction to each other is strong, the issues standing between them are difficult at best. Family loyalty and future happiness are put to the test, can they survive no matter what decision

Barely ok for me..

Let me just start by saying I wasn’t going to get this book because of the stupid looking guy on the front. WHY anyone would put a male model on the front of a book that looks that stupid is beyond me. I associate my hero with the pic I see one the front, if there is one, but I really couldn’t this time. Between ridiculous hats and men with buns in their hair and men with horribly bushy beards I’m going to stop reading books with a man on the front if they are all going to star

Accidentally Hers was my first book by Jamie Beck and I am honestly not sure if it was the writing style or simple just this plotline that didn’t work out for me. I want to believe that it was the plotline so I can give the author another chance as I really liked the idea behind this book.

I can not even tell anymore how or when precisely the story lost me but after an intriguing start there were simply to many times that I found myself actually cringing at the plotline. And I was not able to und

Not great

Certainly an interesting concept. H is struck while on his motorcycle, by h's drunk brother. Then begins the problems that arise between them. Summit meetings have been resolved, with less problems than these two have.
A calm, relaxing, enjoyable afternoon romance, this is not.
More like the Dr. Seuss character whose tail was entangled in unsolvable knots. I didn't think it would ever end. It finally does, with less fireworks, more fizzle, but by then I was just so glad to see it end, tha

I do understand the loyal to the family, but I m not that understand that, if u r the only one who is loyal, do u still go on?

Grey is a honorable man, he was in bad luck, the accident, broken knee, business failed, mountain of bills because the accident. Yeah, grey is the victim, not the one to blame.

Those r ANDY, who drunk n drove, caused the accident that hurt Grey.

Avery may be a smart woman with Ph.D. Degree in PT, but she was selfish, she maybe nice, victim of the accident too, but she said

I liked it. Great premise, believable conflict and strong execution. It was a bit too nicey-nice for me. Heroine doesn't approve of swearing, hero has a sweet tooth. She wouldn't agree to date him for months and then was reluctant to sleep with him. Come on, girl! Get some!! I wanted more steam and spontaneity and mental lusting during PT appts. I liked that that hero struggled financially and with dyslexia. All of the details (legal, ski, physical therapy) seemed well researched.

Sex: mild

So enjoyed the journey of the relationship of Avery and Grey set in a small ski town of Colorado. Both with previous failed relationships and not looking for a new relationship. Loved how family is so important to Avery and how Grey is very fair to her family and not taking them down. Loved the secondary characters, Kelsey and Trip hoping for more from them.

Great character development. Loved the backdrop of Colorado scenery. This is my first book by Jamie Beck and will not be my last. I recei

At the start I was thinking four stars. It didn’t take long for that to turn into a “ehhh...maybe 3...”, and by the end of the book at times even two stars seemed too generous. The story, while gripping enough, lacked any sort of originality. That, on top of the predictably self-absorbed main characters, made this book a chore on more than one occasion. The writing was average. The intimate scenes were overused and cringey. Probably the worst part about this story though? The characters themselv ...more

I recently found Ms. Beck’s great books and quickly read her St. James series. Those were fantastic. I eagerly took advantage of the KU program to download Accidentally Hers, the book, and the audio. I discovered another great series.

I thoroughly enjoyed Avery and Grey’s love story. The characters are well-developed, and the story line believable. This one has plenty of twists and turns that kept the book moving at a fast pace.

Ms. Beck’s writing is emotionally-charged. Even her secondary charac
Accidentally Yours is my first book from Jamie Beck and I listened to the audiobook version. I loved Greyson "Grey" Lowell. He was a kind, laidback, sexy, athletic, stand-up kind of awesome guy, who practically fell in love with Avery "Bambi" Randall the first time he sees her. Even though trying to have a relationship with her is all kinds of complicated and has bad idea written all over it, he can't resist her. Avery is between a Rock and a hard place when it comes to Grey. She's definitely in ...more

Well this story was barely okay, nothing great and very predictable. Great Narration by Kate Rudd (audible review)

The story was okay at best. I wasn't a fan of the circumstance of this couple getting together. I thought it was rather stupid and pretty bad to make the lead female's brother the drunk driver that hits the lead male character. And then she is sticking up for her brother all the time. Makes it hard to like her. Leave the drunk drivers out of your story unless you are going to make th
A mostly cute, light read. Avery began to wear on nerves at the midway point; her excuses for being closed off were no longer working for me. I really liked Grey and wish my annoyance at Avery hadn't overshadowed his character. I found the supporting cast adorable and will try their books in the future. This is one that would be good palette cleanser in between heavy reads.

Audio: Kate was good but not spectacular.

This is the first book by the author, Jamie Beck, that I have had the pleasure of reading and I loved it! The blurb really drew me in and I was not disappointed! I found the storyline to be fresh and unique, unlike any romance novel I have read before. The characters were highly likable and you could definitely sense the instant attraction and sexual chemistry between the two.

This is a romance set with a backdrop where the two main characters, Grey Lowell and Avery Randall, are set against each
