About Accidentally in Love


Arya 

I know I can make you blush. 
It’s a weird claim to fame, but a perk of my dream job: being the voice of your favorite romance audio
books. Laughter, hijinks, adventure. Passion. Sweet heaven, the passion. It’s everything I could ever want.
Except… 
The problem with this fabulous life? 
It’s all just fantasy. 
Picking between Chinese and Thai delivery doesn’t count as adventure. 
The bestie who always makes me laugh is thousands of miles away. 
As for the hunky hero? It’s not like he’s just going to come crashing into my apartment. 
Until the night a bearded stranger does exactly that… 
Gavin 
Do the job. Get the bad guy. Go home. 
Most importantly, don’t get involved. 
Those are the rules. The agency’s and mine. And they work. Even better, they give me the perfect excuse
to keep my distance. 
The perfect escape from getting burned again. Except… 
Why can’t I stop watching her? 
I shouldn’t care more about what she’s doing than my target. 
I shouldn’t let her distract me from the job. 
And I sure as hell shouldn’t fantasize about a woman I’ll never meet. 
That is, until the night I surprise us both by kicking down her apartment door. Rules or no rules, it’s true
that… 
After all, 425 Madison Avenue is the perfect place to fall in love.

*Each story is completely standalone.

My review:

 Gavin is a federal agent staking out the suspected criminal in 425 Madison from a building across the street. Arya is the suspect’s neighbor. Gavin tries not to watch her, to invade her privacy, but he can’t help but notice her patterns. A sudden altercation in her apartment grabs his attention, and he rushes over to save her.

Intrigued by the mysterious stranger who barged into her apartment and somehow knew her name, Arya stakes *him* out over the next few days and follows him back to his hiding place. She recognizes another lonely soul in him as she herself feels, and they begin to have adventures together, taking turns finding fun things to do together to learn the city and have more of a life than sitting in their apartments all day.

This was a fun book to read. Arya is a strong, independent young woman who moved across the entire country for her dream job, despite not knowing anyone in the city. But her life isn’t what she expected and she’s lonely. I love the group of friends that Gavin helped her gain entry into. And Arya helps Gavin see that he can have a life outside of work. They really are so sweet together.

This book was a nice addition to the 425 Madison series. It’s a cute, fun, light read despite Gavin’s occupation. Is there a huge glaring plot hole in that he can leave his subject for hours at a time to go on dates with Arya? Sure. But this isn’t a crime novel. We can suspend our disbelief for that in order to enjoy the story of Gavin and Arya.

Rating: ♥♥♥♥

Excerpt
Copyright @ 2019 Katy Ames

 

“Number one rule of tailing someone: don’t breathe so loud they can hear you five flights away.”
“Hey!” I say, thwacking his chest. “Don’t be a jerk. Besides, I don’t think you’re in the position to give
spy tips right now.”
One bold eyebrow lifts in question.
Pushing out of his grasp, I whip the hat off my head, breathing in relief as cool air hits my skull. “Isn’t
the number one rule of spying not to pick up a tail in the first place?”
The first eyebrow drops, followed by the other. Green eyes turn sharp, primitive, before brightening. A
roar of laughter erupts from his chest. We stand there for who knows how long, me huffing and puffing,
and Gavin laughing like I’ve just delivered the funniest one-liner he’s ever heard. When he stops, his
chest is heaving as hard as mine. One last chuckle escapes when he clocks my annoyed expression.
“Oh, come on. You should be proud. It’s been forever since I laughed that hard. That alone should
make up for giving yourself away. Besides, it was a good effort. For a first timer.”
“Ugh,” is the only answer that seems fitting. “When did you realize I was there?”
“Hmm,” he says, stroking his beard, his lips still twisted in a smirk. “Down in the alley. When you
scraped that thing against the wall.” He points at the metal tip on the large umbrella.
“You heard that?”
“Hmm,” he repeats, head bobbing. “That and a lot more.” Gavin sweeps his eyes down my body,
lingering on my boots before pivoting and heading down the hall.
“Wait, what else?” Keeping up is impossible, what with my thigh muscles screaming and pain
scorching my foot. He slows his pace without glancing back, his strides shortening until I catch up.
Another step and another wince, and Gavin mutters something under his breath before lifting me off
my feet. My own smirk turns to a shriek when he throws me over his shoulder and swats my butt
before continuing down the hall.
“That was completely unnecessary.” My complaint lacks edge, which I blame on the view of his very
fine ass.
“Quite the opposite, Ms. Winters. Consider it punishment for ignoring my warnings about staying away.”

 


 

About Katy Ames:


 
Katy Ames has spent most of her life on the East Coast and hopes to spend more of it in the UK, primarily
so she can indulge in her serious plaid obsession. There isn’t a teenage drama or a period British TV
show she hasn’t binge-watched at least twice. And she can be persuaded to do almost anything with the
promise of bourbon, chocolate, or a nap (not necessarily in that order).
Katy is mom to a small human who has an obscene amount of energy and a blissful ability to ignore swear
words, and wife to a man whose reading habits are far too serious. Katy and her family reside in
Washington, D.C., a city she where never intended to live and loves so much she’d be happy to talk about
it for hours. Just ask.

They call me the sugar whisperer.

Anything your tongue desires, I can bake it. Scones? Child’s play. Cupcakes?
I’ll frost them so good you won’t know what hit you. Donuts? Please.

You’re talking to a master baker.

But there’s one egg I’ve never been able to crack.

My best friend.

Correction: My former best friend.

She’s the apple in my pie. The whip in my cream. The lemon in my meringue. The
wish in my bone.

She’s the one who got away.

After ten years in the military, she’s back. She’s bruised and battered by
life, but she’s back.

Except she’s not my second chance. She’s gone to the dark side.

Running a rival bakery in a town not big enough for two.

So now I have to decide—which do I want more?

My bakery?

Or the woman I never should’ve let go in the first place?Master Baker is a deliciously fun friends-to-enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy
featuring a smooth-talking baker, the one who got away, and a goat with more
matchmaking tendencies than a nosy old grandpa. It stands alone with no
cheating or cliffhangers.
