A Heartbreaker Bay Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


(A standalone Heartbreaker Bay novel)

There’s no such thing as a little in love . . .

Elle Wheaton’s priorities: friends, career, and kick-ass shoes. Then there’s the muscular wall of stubbornness that’s security expert Archer Hunt—who comes before everything else. No point in telling Mr. “Feels-Free Zone” that, though. Elle will just see other men until she gets over Archer . . . which should only take a lifetime . . . 

There’s no such thing as a little in lust . . .

Archer’s wanted the best for Elle ever since he sacrificed his law-enforcement career to save her. Their chemistry could start the next San Francisco earthquake and he craves her 24/7, but Archer doesn’t want to be responsible for the damage. The alternative? Watch her go out with guys who aren’t him . . .

There is such a thing as . . .

As far as Archer’s concerned, nobody is good enough for Elle. But when he sets out to prove it by sabotaging her dates, she gets mad—and things get hot as hell. Now Archer has a new mission: prove to Elle that her perfect man has been here all along . . .

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 05, 2016 – Shalvis's San Francisco based Heartbreaker Bay contemporary romance series started out strong, but this time around, property manager Elle Wheaton and romantic foil Archer Hunt have neither the quirky charm of Pru Harris and Finn O'Riley (Sweet Little Lies) nor the warm glow of Willa Davis and Keane Winters (The Trouble with Mistletoe). Elle and Archer do fulfill the overarching theme of the series: two people connected by complicated past issues who fight their mutual attraction against the backdrop of the city's Cow Hollow District. Archer, an ex-cop, operates a security business that's responsible for the safety of the building that Elle manages. He knew that the two of them working together was a bad idea old baggage and all yet he recommended her for the building manager job anyway. The daily torture of their close professional proximity is too slender a thread on which to hang the story, so Shalvis adds a subplot involving Elle's black-sheep sister that lacks sufficient depth to be credible. Shalvis's fans will still read this installment, but they know she can do better.

Accidentally On Purpose

Wow!!!! I just finished this book and I'm breathless!!! I don't know if I have the words to tell you how much I loved this story. Archer is a hero and protector bar none!!! He has spent the last eleven years watching over Elle and making sure she is safe. Elle was the girl that got to him, she had him doing things that would cost him so much but in the end she gave him everything!!! Theirs isn't an easy love story it took courage for both of them to let the other one close. They both had hearts that were surrounded by brick walls that had to be removed carefully, one brick at a time. Archer fell first and hard then he had to believe enough for both of them until he convinced her he wouldn't leave that he loved her forever and it was safe for her to love him too!!! The writing of this book was genius, it was so well written that I couldn't stop reading until I was done and now that I have posted my review I'm going to go back and read it again!!! I have fallen for this book family and I can't wait to read more!!! Well done Jill Shalvis I think you are insanely talented I am a fan for life!!

The two you’ve been waiting for!

The two I've been waiting for, Elle and Archer, since the beginning of the Heartbreaker Bay series! We finally learn about their past and the reasons why they seem to hate each other. I love the interactions with the other characters and the sense of family you get with each subsequent book. Archer has such a strong personality that it's awesome when you see Elle's comebacks hit him where it hurts. This was another wonderful, fun, sexy story from Jill Shalvis. You can't miss.

Great group of friends!

With another match up of the Heartbreaker Bay gang, Jill Shalvis brings us Elle's story! The connection between her and Archer is not only sexy as sin, but it's also sweet and comforting. I really enjoy this group of friends. They are always there for one another, and are always good for a few laughs as we see their interactions.

Elle Wheaten owes Archer Hunt a lot. She came from a hard life, and when he chose to give up so much in order to rescue her from it, she took on the additional burden of knowing how much she had cost him. It doesn't stop her from constantly wanting him, but it makes her understand why he can't possibly want her back.

Considering the circumstances when they met, Archer feels like his desire for Elle is wrong. He's worked hard to show indifference to her all of these years, but when he sees her starting to want more in her life, it drives him crazy to see her possibly reach for it with someone else!

Will these two stubborn people be able to put aside their pride long enough to see that the other loves them too?
