BOOK REVIEW: Accidentally Married on Purpose by Rachel Harris

One ring plus one wild night equals one crazy love

Sherry Robicheaux loves men. She loves love. And she loves an adventure. So when she meets a mysterious man while working backstage at a country music concert in Vegas, she’s all about what’s happened in Vegas staying there.

Country music superstar Tyler Blue just wants a weekend of anonymity…though there’s something about the spunky waitress with the streaks of purple hair that tempts him like no other. Until the next morning, when they both wake up with fuzzy memories…and rings on their fingers.

Convincing Sherry to maintain the ruse for his public image isn’t the hardest part—it’s reminding himself that their time spent playing husband and wife in her small town of Magnolia Springs can’t last. Tyler’s first love will always be music—and the road is no place for a sweet downhome girl.
I am going to be straight with you, Accidentally Married on Purpose is one of those, 'I got so drunk in Vegas that I married a stranger' stories. There are a million books like this out there and at this point I feel like I've read them all. You are probably wondering why I keep reading them. Well the answer is that I literally cannot stop myself, which tells you everything you need to know about my level of will power and my relationship with romance literature. You see, the thing is that most of the time reading romance novels makes me want to put my head through a wall. But, every now and then a book comes along that makes it all worth it. Was Accidentally Married on Purpose one of those books? No. But in all honesty it really wasn't all that bad either.

Accidentally Married on Purpose ended up being pretty cute. It had some substance and well built characters which was likely due to not having any love scenes to take up room. I felt like Harris built up the story and the romance well. The feelings felt genuine and the characters were relate-able. Unfortunately, the last ten percent descended into cheesiness that was hard to stomach. It just all got a little too sickly for me.

Both Sherry and Tyler were likeable characters they could both be a little bone headed at times but I mostly understood the motives for their actions up until that last ten percent where they become one of those couples you just want to punch.

I didn't love this one but I didn't hate it either. It was a good way to spend a train journey to London but I wasn't crazy about it.
