Book Review: Accidentally Hers by Jamie Beck

Book Description

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.
Physical therapist Avery Randall is shocked to learn that Grey’s the man her brother struck with his car, and even more stunned when he arrives at the clinic expecting her help. Despite her reservations and Grey’s silly new nickname for her, Avery agrees to work with him, and passion begins to simmer. Yet with his livelihood at stake, Grey must make tough decisions that could hurt Avery and her family. Before long, Avery’s loyalties are tested, and the choices she and Grey each make may cost them their chance at lasting love.

**I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.**

Welcome to Sterling Canyon, Colorado... where everyone (locals) know everyone and always in everyones (locally) business.  Grey Lowell is the new guy in town, having recently bought Backtrax, a ski-expedition company.  Grey has no time to get to know his new "neighbors" since he's to busy trying to get Backtrax running smoothly.  He sees Avery (who he nicknames "Bambi" because for her doe eyes) across from a crowded restaurant, he is instantly attracted to her and starts questioning his "no dating" rule.   But after leaving the restaurant, Grey is hit on his bike by a drunk driver.  And that driver happened to be Avery's brother.

Avery is only one of two orthopedic physical therapist in town, so she isn't all that surprised when Grey shows up at her clinic "demanding" her treat him.  From there, the relationship between therapist and client get blurred, even the treat of a lawsuit and criminal charges hanging over the Randall family.  

Accidentally Hers was just an okay book for me.  I didn't find myself getting all that invested in Grey or Avery.  It's definitely not a book a would have my friends run out it buy.  While I get that physical therapy can be annoying and we want instant results (I've been there after shoulder surgery), Grey really annoyed me with his view of this "lack of progress" only a few months after major knee surgery.  And Avery just came off as whiny to me about everything and not always angry at the right person (her brother).
