Beautiful Accidents by Erin Zak

This book had me on the edge of my seat from the get-go. I couldn’t get enough! 

What was the book about?:
Stevie is making it big in the Chicago Improv scene. She has one dream, and that’s to become an SNL host, and it looks like her dream is finally in reach. She doesn’t have time for romantic entanglements, especially when she could be leaving Chicago as soon as she gets her big break. 

Bernadette is a sign language interpreter for her best friend Constance who is a deaf psychic. When she isn’t with Constance, she is caring for her elderly deaf mother and those are her main priorities. 

But when Stevie is dragged by friends to see a psychic and meets Bernadette, her world is turned on its axis and she isn’t the only one feeling the major spark. But Bernadette can’t date a client of Constance’s as part of her work agreement and Stevies leaving anyway right? But they can’t seem to catch a break when they continuously bump into each other following Stevie’s reading. Could it be fate? Or a disaster waiting to happen?

Featured Tropes:
Forbidden love, Age Gap, Femme/Femme and Soul Mates

Book Strengths:
What a ride! This book had me glued from the moment Stevie and Bernadette are thrown together. I honest to god couldn’t put it down and felt like I missed the characters as soon as I finished. 

The storyline itself was very compelling but I also enjoyed getting to know the secondary characters and their backstories that really enhanced the plot and made the book so much more exciting… If that was even possible. 

Book weaknesses:
No epilogue. I know I am a broken record with this one, but it’s my thing. If Erin Zak wrote a short story (even one that made it to an anthology) or sequel for this book, I will happily remove this and rate it a full five stars.

Character Chemistry:
The chemistry between Stevie and Bernadette is incredible, and it was emanating off the page from the moment they met. I wrote down that one of the tropes is Soulmates and that term couldn’t be more accurate.

So I’ve just got to say this… A woman asking for what she wants in sex or a written sex scene is incredibly hot, but to do it with sass and confidence blows me away every damn time. And what blew my mind further is that the sex scene I am talking about is not the only one in there that left me a little light-headed. Hot Damn!

I was utterly taken with Bernadette and she probably gave me more heart-clenching moments than I would have ever expected from her character, but she still managed to be spunky and sexy the whole damn time. She was definitely the complete package.

Heat Rating: 5

There is just something about Erin Zak’s writing that just gets me. Whether she is writing Ice Queens or Age Gap romances, I am captivated. Watch this space, and I am predicting great things. 

Star Rating: 4.5 stars
