Review~ Accidentally in Love by Laura Drewry

Accidentally in Love (Friends First, #3)

Accidentally in Love by Laura Drewry
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Accidentally in Love is the book I’ve needed for a while now. There was none of that instant attraction where most of the story centers around the main couple just having sex and not much time actually getting to know each other, which seem to me the theme lately in a lot of the books I’ve been picking up. So it was a nice change to read something different for me, where the characters spend actual time together and don’t just hop into bed together right away. So this was the perfect book for me right now.

Accidentally in Love is book three in the Friends First series by Laura Drewry. I really enjoyed this book and the previous ones, the series keeps getting better! Accidentally in Love is the story of Ella Palmer and Brett Hale, for those who have read the other books both characters have been in the previous stories. Ella doesn’t trust cops and no one could blame her with the bad experience she had in the past. Brett is a cop and has been lucky enough to pull Ella over many times for speeding, but this time he has to revoke her license. Brett and Ella haven’t really spent much time together, but now they have to since Ella has to go to a driver safety class and Brett is the teacher, but this isn’t the other thing that will bring these two together. Ella past is back in the form of her ex-boyfriend and he is stirring up trouble. To stay safe Ella has to put her trust into the police and Brett. The more time Brett and Ella spending together the more they start to fall for each other with which is a conflict of interest since Ella is a case Brett is working.

Ella is a smart ass, her quick wit and nervous rambling kept me laughing, she is definitely a likable character. I’ve always liked Brett from the previous books, but I loved him in this one. He was such a gentleman and all around good guy or as Ella liked to call him Dudley Do-Right. Like the other books each chapter started with a quote from a police movie or show. I love how Laura adds those little touches to each other her books, it’s like a nice surprise at the beginning of every chapter. Accidentally in Love had everything I wanted in a book, humor, mystery and romance. It left me wanting more, so I’m really looking forward to Maya’s book.

Accidentally In Love
Friends First # 3
By: Laura Drewry
Releasing June 16, 2015

Fans of Jill Shalvis and Susan Mallery will love Laura Drewry’s warm and humorous new Friends First romance, a sexy romp about a good cop and a bad girl playing hard to get.

Ellie Palmer and cops don’t mix, and getting pulled over by Officer Brett Hale—again—doesn’t help. Neither does being forced to take a safe-driving course with him. Brett’s by-the-book attitude leaves Ellie ice-cold, and his rock-hard body won’t change that. Still, the more time she spends with the guy, the more she finds herself warming up to his unexpected charms.

Even though Brett comes off like a boy scout, Ellie has sparked something he wants badly enough to get him to rethink his past mistakes. But when her ex shows up, Brett makes it his mission to keep Ellie safe in the here and now. His gut tells him the guy’s trouble, and Ellie must agree, because she doesn’t complain when Brett pulls her close. To keep her safe, though, he’ll have to choose between breaking her heart . . . and breaking the rules.
