One morning before work, Alan Travers accidentally bumps into Detective Jim Garrison at a cafe where both men stop for coffee. The handsome younger man interests Alan, but he misses his chance to get to know the detective better and wonders if he’ll get another.

With the help of his nephew Bryce, Alan concocts a plan to try and get Jim’s attention “accidentally on purpose.” It works, but as things heat up between them, Alan worries what Jim will think if he finds out their getting together was no accident.

Then Bryce goes missing, and Alan’s going to have to come clean. But is he the only one not being truthful?

I can’t stop laughing. This was such a great book. I can’t think of the last book I read that had me smiling so much.

Alan is 53 and he’s got a major crush on a cop who’s 42. He’s made a fool of himself by literally running into him at the coffee shop, stalking him at the mall and having his nephew, Brooks, stay out past curfew to be brought home by him. But it worked… Jim smiles and laughs and takes his chances on Alan each and every time.

Jim was so awesome. I loved him from the start. He cut through the bull and got right down to business. And he cracked me up throughout the entire book, but especially in the bedroom. He was so silly and sweet and impatient. And it was obvious that Alan was made for him.

I loved the way the two fit together. And even though Brooks took their relationship to extreme measures, I did love how much he was invested in their happiness. It was a real treat to read and such a fun ride. I really loved every moment of it.

There were so many sweet and funny exchanges throughout the story and I was thrilled with they way it all played out. I only wish there was more to read.

Galley copy of Accidentally on Purpose provided by Author in exchange of an honest review.


Reading has become such a huge part of my life as an adult. I love the escape, but I also try to take something from each story for myself. I am a lover of words. I love dialogue. I love a slow burn and a happy ever after.
