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.
This is a review for the audio book version of Accidentally Hers by Jamie Beck.
Narrated by Kate Rudd, this was my first audio book that I had the pleasure of listening to. The narrator provided all the voices for the different characters. The nuances for each female character was evident, but for the male ones, it was really only one voice. Just deep and a little bit amusing. I couldn’t tell the difference. At 9 hours it took me a few days to listen to the entirety of the story. It was like listening to a drama unfold. As one listens to this story, it takes it to another level. Instead of reading about the emotions, one can hear the narrator portray each one.
With that being said, the story revolved around Avery and Grey. Their differences and awkward relationship was really interesting. Awkward because Gray was involved in an accident caused by Avery’s brother. Conflict of interest was definitely a major factor. Avery was faced with the option of staying loyal to family versus falling in love with the “enemy” who could sue them and take everything they have. I wanted to see where that would lead, because of the barriers. Avery and Gray do fall in love and there are a lot of trust issues and differences to overcome.
Gray was a cute character and it was hard not to like him. Avery was a bit difficult, there were moments where I had to roll my eyes at her behavior.
I like the characters of Sterling Canyon. Since I read book 2 before this one, it does make sense to read this one first. You’ll get a better understanding of the characters. (Even though I liked Trip and Kelsey’s story better.)
