This is Drew and Emily's story, two broken-hearted widowers who are both looking to find an outlet in their lives. They meet in Maui, and create this pretty hefty pact to keep everything between them casual... other than having hot sex of course. In turn, they can't discuss anything about their personal lives. What starts out as a little steamy fun fast turns into something neither of them ever expected: a real connection. It's an up and downhill battle between them from that point on, and let me tell you... the ANGST. It nearly killed me, but in a good way, of course.
I loved this story, plain and simple. Casual flings turning into more is one of my favorite romance tropes in romance, and Dana Mason took it to a whole other level in Accidental Lies, breaking my heart, only to piece it back together in the end. Fabulous story I can't recommend enough
I think part of the reason it starts to lose me is the miscommunication between the two characters was just so frustrating. Also, Emily is mad at a guy she goes on a few dates with for not listening to her, but she does the same thing to Drew and it was so freaking annoying. Her stubbornness and to just have everything her way kind of annoyed me.
I think another thing, and it might not be just this book's fault but on me for reading too many similar books, the book has a romance trope that isn't my favorite. I'm not spoiling it here, but it does one of these and it becomes this huge plot point of conflict. It also just didn't make sense to me, so that annoyed me.
I really wanted these two to get together, but it did feel like it took forever. I loved the beginning when they were in Hawaii but once they got out of it, it turned into this really angsty book.
This one was just okay for me, but maybe I would have liked it better had a read it between less romance books.
*I received a review copy of this book and I voluntarily read and reviewed this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
One thing I really liked (its very insignificant, but I want to point it out) is that in so many romance novels that I have read, there is a scene where the heroine drinks too much and needs “taken care of”, which was also the case in this book, however instead of getting very sick, needing her hair held back, etc., Drew put her to bed and that was it, she was fine the next day. I just really liked that, because not every woman is such a lightweight!
Towards the end I did start to get frustrated with Emily. In my opinion she was acting just like Grant in that she was just not listening to what Drew was saying and trying to tell her at all! And he should have just made himself heard, ugh! But it all worked out in the end, which speaking of the ending… Loved it!!
