Reviews: Accidentally On Purpose
When Luke came into the picture, I imagined that he would save her from herself and Kyle but again, I was surprised how that turned out. Emmy juggled the two men knowing which man was better for her (Luke) but not being able to let go of Kyle. This part of the story was a true testament to human nature at it's worst: addiction and addictive personalities. I don't even know if the author planned it this way, but it's what translated to be in my mind. It helped cement Emmy in my head in a way. I started to feel for her and understand why she couldn't let go of Kyle. It ended up costing her Luke whom she knew was her savior in a way.
Then Emmy got pregnant with Luke's baby and my heart broke. I felt like I was going to crumble reading her struggle to take care of herself, leave Kyle, and mourn the loss of Luke. She was alone in life, much like she was a the beginning of the story, but she felt the weight of it so much more now.
Without revealing the end, I appreciate the journey that Emmy had to take to make things right and to make herself heal. Although, it's not until the next book that you really see her or Kyle have closure. There were open things in Accidentally on Purpose that get answered in Worthy of Redemption so I suggest to go into the next book as fast as you can.
Some issues I had: Some plot points were introduced in various parts of the story that seemed to just come out of nowhere. For example: Emmy's mom have contact with Luke's family the whole time they were broken up. And the bigger one, Kyle's drug addiction. Nowhere in the story until the point where Emmy talked about Kyle being an addict did I even suspect he was one. It's was strange and felt more like a plot devise to explain why he abused Emmy.

Also when Lily gets pregnant, I thought, here we go again. It didn't ring true with me. I also didn't understand why Kyle didn't just tell Lily upfront that her stalker was still on the loose and he was concerned for her safety other than being dominating in their relationship with the false flag he just wanted to keep her safe. I found that in these types of books miscommunication runs rampant and it's a clear tool to move the plot along.
I liked Lily maybe because I liked Emmy. And I loved that Emmy came back and her and Kyle were able to finally forgive each other. I really wanted to see more Corsey and Marco, they both sounded super hot. Maybe a Marco and Mayson story could be in the works dear L.D.?
All and all, I still really enjoyed reading these books. I wanted a little more variety with the character personalities but I can't get everything I wish for. But I would suggest them for a angsty, steamy but humorous read.
