Accidental Tryst (Charleston, #1)
Meet Trystan Montgomery. Suit monkey, commitment-phobic serial dater. No more than three dates, unless he hasn't ... you know. Emmy:What a disaster! I only just made my flight to New York to help my uncle, and the phone I’m holding is not mine! It seems to belong to some commitment-phobic serial dater who’s never made it past four dates (according to the constant notifications he's getting from his fake dating profile...) And worse? I have a sinking feeling it’s that hot suit-monkey with the arctic grey eyes I just had a run-in with at the airport. Somehow I have to persuade him not to get a new phone until I get back. My whole life is on that phone. It’s only a few days. Surely we can handle it. Trystan :This is a joke, right? My life could not get more f*cked up. I’m in the middle of selling my company and on my way to a funeral and that hot mess hippie-chick stole my freaking phone. I’m not sure how she convinced me not to immediately walk into a smart phone store and get a new one, but now she’s going to have to play stand in and distract me while I deal with my long-avoided and estranged family. I don’t have my dating apps after all, and frankly she’s pretty funny. And sexy. And why can’t I stop texting her? And now we’re talking. And … look, I’ll admit that I usually run for the hills the morning after, but the morning after phone sex? That’s not really real, right?

    Five stars for this romantic comedy! I adored how Trystan and Emmy get to know one another and how they fall into one another’s lives. "But…oh shit. This was not my phone.” The banter and chemistry is fantastic the author exceeded my expectations with this couple! "Can we be scared together?"

I just accidentally removed it today.. I really enjoyed and loved Accidental Tryst. This novel was funny, hot, sweet and a little emotional. I had to laugh many times and I had a big smile on my face at the end. I loved the texts, the phone calls and the mails. I was hooked from the start and I didn’t want to stop reading. I just wished that there was an epilogue. It was over too soon.Accidental Tryst starts at an airport. Trystan and Emmy see each other. They don’t talk to each other, but they have an opinion about each other. That opinion isn’t very positive. When Emmy needs to catch her plane, she takes the wrong phone with her. She needs her phone, so she hopes that the real owner has her phone. Trystan can’t believe someone took his phone, because he needs it. When Trystan and Emmy talk to each other, they decide to keep each other’s phone until they can give the phone back. They keep in touch in the mean time.Trystan and Emmy are incredible characters. Emmy is caring, talented, sweet, easy going and loving. She would do anything for her family and friends. Emmy loves the city where she lives, Charleston, and she knows all the hidden gems there. Trystan isn’t a fan of the city, but he likes it more and more. Trystan is a smart, rich, closed off businessman with a soft side. He did some sweet things for Emmy. Some things from Trystan’s past still affect his life now. He doesn’t like his family and he can’t believe what his grandfather put in his will. Emmy does change Trystan’s mind about some things and makes him feel less lonely.Trystan and Emmy are opposites, but I really love them together. They slowly start to like (and maybe even love) each other. But Trystan and Emmy keep some distant at the beginning, because they don’t expect to hear each other once they get their own phone back and they live far from each other. Things change in their lives and they love talking to each other. Both of them think about each other when they don’t hear the other. Trystan and Emmy are a beautiful, wonderful couple.It took a long time before Trystan and Emmy met each other in real life. Both of them had something important going on in the city they were staying. Their first real meeting and their kiss were worth the wait. I maybe wanted them to see each other in real life sooner, just to get some more time of them as a couple. But I also never noticed that it took so long, because I was loving the story so much.Accidental Tryst has great secondary characters! Emmy has amazing friends and she’s very close to them. Her friends are funny, genuine and loving. Emmy can always count on them. I really liked Trystan’s cousin, Beau. I’m so excited that he will get his own book. I can’t wait!-- My honest review is based on an advanced reader copy of this book. --

I was amused, I laughed, I felt the steam rising and I pretty much loved the characters. Emmy and Trystan are memorable for their hate, their banter and their chemistry. This book has the characters geographically apart for quite a section of the book, as they’ve accidentally picked up one another’s phones. Considering this, these two had the kind of chemistry that illuminated the room....with crackles. Trystan (the ‘Suit Monkey’) starts with a hint of jerk but he is about to face something difficult, in actual fact, Trystan is a man evolving and he’s so damn funny. “He was a kind, beautiful man, with a tendency toward periodic assholery.Initially, I thought Emmy was an air-head, probably because Trystan convinced me of this but she’s not. She’s such a compassionate character and I loved the story revolving around David. I think and believe that Emmy’s compassion rubbed off on Trystan. In fact, the influence they had on one another’s lives from afar was good reading. When these two met...boom!ACCIDENTAL TRYST has a thread of families throughout. The Dubois and the Montgomerys were unconventional and complicated and I loved the saga feel to these families. I’m delighted there will be more from connected characters.Natasha Boyd’s writing made me slip into the story with ease. She had just the right amount of fun-to-serious measure, alongside buckets of chemistry. The dialogue was sublime and so damn funny. The story never waned, keeping me engaged from cover to cover. “Can we be scared together?”I voluntarily read an early copy of this book.Reviewed for Jo&IsaLoveBooks Blog.

    This is a sweet book which is also a quick read. It is fun and an enjoyable pastime.Trystan & Emmy accidentally switch phones at the airport and for a few days, they hold on to each other's phone while they are in different cities.They start to message & e-mail to each other to forward their important messages at the beginning but later they discover that they like chatting on the phone. It is sometimes by messages or e-mails and sometimes by actual phone conversations or video chats. ** This is a sweet book which is also a quick read.

Their conversations are sometimes sweet and fun and sometimes full of sexual chemistry.***********************************************In this sweet story of Trystan and Emmy, what bothered me most was the fact that their face-to-face interaction begins on page 191 of the 263-page long book. When they meet in person, they get physical and emotional. Then because of their fears, there is a little push & pull. Finally, they decide to take a chance on each other.So, they start to date officially and "The End".Such an abrupt ending! It could have been so much better with some more development of their relationship and a more decent ending. Also, an epilogue wouldn't hurt.Such a shame because it was so much fun and the book had potential to be so much better. It now feels as if the writer got bored and just wanted to end it.3 stars out of 2,5QUICK TIPS: Safe. No OW/OM drama. No cheating. Low on the angst.Dual point of view "I'm scared," I admitted. "Me too... Can we be scared together?"

    "Her words make me feel like a king. And she is my kingdom, my queen, my advisor, my beggar and every loyal and willing subject. I'll worship at her altar." I loved it. It's no secret that Natasha Boyd is one of my favorite authors. Her books are an auto-buy for me. This time she surprised me with this sexy and funny contemporary romance that reminded me so much of Vi Keeland's stories. Trystan and Emmy are strangers and two very different people in almost everything. They do share one thing in "Her words make me feel like a king.

They do share one thing in common, which is the type of their mobile device, and it's what gets them interfering in each other's life. Emmy is almost alone in the world trying very hard to keep her last connection to a family that chose her in her most valnerable. She is a free spirit, has a few very good friends and lives happily in Charleston.Trystan, is in the top of the world, harvesting the fruits of his long labor in the real estate business and indulging himself in an endless parade of one-night hook-ups. He lives in New York but a family affair with his long time enstranged relatives has him colliding paths with Emmy.Watching their relationship advance through messages, e-mails, phone-talk and phone -videos, was very amusing and enjoyable. One of the best contemporary romances I've read lately, I recommend it to all my friends who like the gender.

Texting is what we do best" When the couple in question spend large parts of a story apart, there has to be something special to bring the spark and chemistry that being together in person brings. And Natasha Boyd does creates that as Trystan and Emme bring plenty of fun, flirt and some real heartfelt moments via their texts, emails and conversations, but I can’t deny I did find it something of a slow starter and they didn’t truly grab hold of me until the halfway point. We did better when we were separated by eight hundred fifty miles and just had a cell phone connection." That said, both were endearing: Emme is fun and quirky yet also maddening at times, Trystan a considerate sweetheart with a dirty mind and an equally dirty mouth which leads to some very steamy shenanigans, and as they get to know one another we discover their more vulnerable sides and similarities. It’s easy to hide behind technology, face-to-face brings a whole new set of feelings. Actually, it's kind of a funny story." I wouldn’t say I found the humour laugh-out-loud funny—romcoms are very much individual to the reader and what I find hilarious you may not and vice versa—but there were moments which did rouse a loud snort or three from me. Overall, Accidental Tryst is an easy, enjoyable read (albeit with an ending edge towards the more abrupt side) which I recommend checking out for yourself—I’m certainly interested in Beau’s story when the time comes.

    Proving the sceptics wrong…Accidental Tryst caught my eye with its bright and original cover. These days, I have less and less time to cave in to cover love and pick a book based solely on its cover. Gone are the days where abs and pecs catch my eye. Now, my eyes are looking for something different. It doesn’t have to be a work of art but it does have to have a little pizazz. So, it wasn’t the author, because I haven’t read her stories previously. I hadn’t “heard” about this story either.

So, it wasn’t the author, because I haven’t read her stories previously. I hadn’t “heard” about this story either. It was a cover that caught my eye, then a blurb that was interesting, followed by a price that was not only affordable, it was a bit of *BARGAIN* (anything less than $4.00 is a bit of a bargain these days).From the very first page of Accidental Tryst, I was hooked. I love a good manwhore who realises he’s only a manwhore because he hadn’t found the right woman YET. Of course, there were many reasons why he was a manwhore and I found myself excusing his past mistakes fairly easily. Trystan proved all the sceptics wrong. Manwhores can change their ways. By looking inside himself and getting to know Emmy, he realised that sharing more than a sexual relationship with a woman can make you happy.I love it when I find a romance that I love the heroine as much as the hero. Emmy is the kind of heroine where you actually want her in your own life. She’s the friend who has your back, cares about others…and knows the best places to eat and get coffee. Emmy has had some hard times in her life but she’s determined to make the best out of every opportunity. She’s just a fair dinkum nice person who deserves a happily ever after.The old phone switcheroo is a great storyline and this one was one of the best I’ve read. I loved that Emmy admitted it was easier starting a relationship/friendship by text than having to get to know each other face to face. Both of them acknowledged, that at any time they could throw away the phone in their hand and never have to see/deal with each other again. It was fun watching them realise it's a little more than just minding a phone. When you're constantly thinking about them, worrying for them and fantasising about them, it’s definitely more.I loved the humour in Accidental Tryst. There was a smile on my face throughout most of the story. The only time my smile dimmed was when I had to witness them suffer through their worries over heartbreak and being abandoned. I was convinced they were perfect for each other and that they HAD to make it work.Honestly, this story left me happy. It had just the right mix of highs and lows to keep me thoroughly entertained. There was the initial…*You want me to fall for this Douchewaffle?* That then changed into… *Oh, so you do have a heart buried deep down inside*. Then there was the…*How could you not fall for this cute and quirky lady in her yellow polka dot bikini?* Which made it easier to bear the heartbreak when I was confronted by their pasts…*Oh you poor dear souls, you’ve both had it tough and it breaks my heart to see you have suffered.* The sexy times made me squirm and my heart beat faster…*Oh my lordy, that scene was so HOT and you weren’t even in the same bloody room.*Give me a love story that hits all the highs and lows, and you’ve given me a winner. I’m glad the cover caught my eye, it was a *BARGAIN* and the manwhore proved the sceptics wrong by making the Accidental Tryst lead to a happily ever after.I will definitely be looking for more stories by Natasha Boyd in the future.

However, I did smile a lot at the beginning with the texting banter. First impressions - geesh. Too funny. And so wrong. Kind of. What this book did was surprise me. It surprised me with the depth of character for the leads. It surprised me with secondary characters that don't fit the sidekick mold. Of note on the secondaries is an elderly stockbroker with dementia and a 20-something wanna-be rapper whose day job is at an elderly care facility. Boyd mined pure gold out of these two, among others. It surprised me with the fully-developed romance that takes shape largely with the two main characters in different regions of the country. Attraction of the mind before attraction of the body - (little jumping up and down there).Suit Monkey (sorry, Trystan) is an uptight New Yorker whose normal is off-kilter due to a death in the family. Hippie Girl (sorry, Emmy) is NOT flower-power chick out to save the world one absent-minded thought at a time. She is also off kilter, facing a financial crisis tied to aforementioned dementia patient. At the beginning, readers get sucked into the romance because of the inspired banter, their general hotness, and the hints of decent that constantly trickle into Suit Monkey's actions. The growing attraction keeps you interested, and then the explosive chemistry once they, you know. Holy crap. I read it hours ago, and I'm still swooning a little. Something unique about this book it the realism it fostered despite the contrived premise. The "NOT meet cute" is ridiculous, but the explanation for the long-term phone exchange has some merit. And then these two just keep talking, and reacting, and enjoying, and falling for one another bit by bit despite the chaos of other parts of their lives. There is push-pull. A little bit of angst. A lot of insecurity. A promiscuous man (view spoiler)[ who is reformed but doesn't yet know it upon meeting Emmy (hide spoiler)] and a not-so-promiscuous girl. These tend to be tropes I don't like much, but I just felt pillowed in personality with Trystan and Emmy. I liked them. Their romance had a slow-burn feel to it, and then it just turned scorching hot. If you like Mariana Zapata's approach to taking time for leads to get to know one another, you might enjoy this book, too.First impressions can be dangerous. I thought I was getting a bit of fluff to go with romantic jokes, but I got a soul-deep romance with characters I cared about.Book source: Purchased.

"He was a kind beautiful man, with the tendency toward periodic assholery."Everyone reading this book is a lucky human as you all get to meet your new bookboyfriend Trystan. Trystan is spectacular. He's the perfect mix of all qualities you are looking for in a perfect bookboyfriend. Or at least what I'm looking for. He's strong minded but down to earth, he's proud but got a great sense of humor, he 's loving and caring but afraid of showing affection. He got hurt in the past by his family and is afraid of human proximity. He suits up but is no stuck-up suit. He's the right amount of alpha-male and pushing limits but never over the top."... I feel like I'm base jumping. I just voluntarily threw myself off a cliff, and I'm living in the free-fall terror for as long as it will have me because it feels fucking amazing."I love the way how Natasha lets Trystan open up to Emmy. The conversations over text, calls and e-mails give him the sense of protection and freedom he needed. Until he started to realize what he was missing out, never letting someone getting close to him.The way he starts caring for Emmy is so cute! And action speaks always louder than words. "I never saw him coming, but I knew he had quickly become an addiction that would be impossible to quit."Emmy is equally a spectacular heroine. I love the way how she sees and takes on life. How she became a strong independent woman even though life threw a lot of obstacles in her way. She's cares deeply for the people she loves and that are close to her. She's open minded and a free spirit. If she was real, I totally would love to be one of her closest friends."That's not fair," I whispered. "Not fair? What's not fair is you not even giving me a chance." "A chance to break me?" "A chance to love you."Emmy and Trystan, obviously thrown together by fate and cupid hit a perfect match. Their funny and witty banter on and off the text, emails and calls is hilarious and the chemistry is way off the charts. Natasha made it so easy to fall for both, I just couldn't put the book down. It was like I was on the receiving end of all those messages and I freaking loved it!And I swear to god, the first time they have sex? I never read a first time scene so unbelievably HOT! This was so steamy, my glasses were fogging up. *blush*"Can we be scared together?"Accidental Tryst is such a light and funny read, it lifts your mood automatically, no matter how broody you might be. The way this love story plays out could really be right out of real life. Maybe that's why I felt so close to Emmy and Trystan. It felt real.If you need to lighten up and if you are up for a steaming hot and funny banter, this is totally your book! Natasha did a fantastic job with this story and I can only highly recommend this one!I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this beautiful book!

    “Can we be scared together?” Oh gosh, we LOVED this book! Everything about it left with a warm and giddy feeling of happiness. The feverish chemistry, by text and in person, the witty, flirty, fun and sexy banter, the emotional pull of two people afraid to let their hearts fly, and especially the beautifully sweet, sincere and wonderful way in which Natasha Boyd delivered Trystan and Emmy’s story. It was perfection, and we soon found ourselves texting our own love for Accidental Tryst whilst re “Can we be scared together?” Oh gosh, we LOVED this book!

Their banter between Emmy and Trystan…its perfection!I love everything about this book. Everything!OMG! Me too! Everything! Natasha Boyd has written a blinder! Love it!Well….you get the drift…we enjoyed this book immensely! We delighted in getting to know Emmy and Tristan thanks to a mix up at the airport which saw them grab each other’s mobile phones. With Trystan heading to South Carolina and Emmy heading to New York, they are unable to rectify the problem for a few days due to personal commitments.‘Maybe most people never meet that someone, or maybe they don’t recognize when they do. Maybe they pass them on the street and share a look, but they don’t realize the size of the opportunity they are passing. Or they do but their hands are tied.’Trystan L Montgomery initially came across as an uptight grumpy arse. A workaholic who seeks physical pleasure with no commitments or complications. However, as we came to know him, discovering so much more beneath the sexy and oh so VERY swoony Mr Montgomery!Emmaline Angelique Dubois can’t get a read on Trystan. He’s all over the place…sweet and flirty one minute, a grumpy cock the next. Emmy has her own problems and doesn’t need her developing feelings for this man adding to them, but is helpless to resist the handsome Trystan.‘I never saw him coming, but I knew he had quickly become an addiction that would be impossible to quit.’We loved the way in which Emmy and Trystan’s relationship developed, and the way we were captivated as we learnt the reasons for Trystan being an emotionally disconnected relationship-phobe. At the same time, we discovered Emmy too was carrying her share of baggage, as Trystan and Emmy began to open up about their feelings and pasts before meeting in person. “I’d really love to fall asleep talking to you.” As Emmy and Trystan’s feelings develop, there were moments of tears as emotions felt so real, moments when we fanned ourselves over Trystan’s dirty talk and the intense passion between the two, and OMG! The intensity of their first meeting…we died!! Without question, we felt every look, every touch! And that first kiss….one of the best first kisses we’ve ever read…..oh good Lord, did we swoon! As we turned the last page of Accidental Tryst we were left feeling warm, gooey, and very happy, as Natasha Boyd dealt out all the elements we were in the mood for.“Throw yourself into love, Emmy.

    3.75 starsCute read. LOVED the plot of accidental phone swaps. I could really feel the attraction between the main characters.. however, i HATED the 80% onward bit when Emmy kept being in denial and kept pushing the hero away. SUCH A DRAG.. I would have loved a chapter of them actually living and being together, perhaps even a glimpse into the future. What an abrupt ending! Gah!!

    ;-)Liked this one.Thought it was a fun read.Both the Hero and the heroine had a rather difficult childhood to put it mildly. No abuse but neglect and them being tossed out and rejected by others. This has influenced them, of course.Now my problem was that some difficulties weren't dealt with properly. And there was a definite hint that the Hero would forgive his grandmother. DON'T LIKE THAT!!Anyways, liked the couple, their exchange via email and text.

    “Can we be scared together?” Oh gosh, we LOVED this book! Everything about it left with a warm and giddy feeling of happiness. The feverish chemistry, by text and in person, the witty, flirty, fun and sexy banter, the emotional pull of two people afraid to let their hearts fly, and especially the beautifully sweet, sincere and wonderful way in which Natasha Boyd delivered Trystan and Emmy’s story. It was perfection, and we soon found ourselves texting our own love for Accidental Tryst whilst re “Can we be scared together?” Oh gosh, we LOVED this book!

It was perfection, and we soon found ourselves texting our own love for Accidental Tryst whilst reading, unable to contain our excitement for this fabulous romantic comedy…..OMG I’m loving this bookI love Trystan alreadyI’ve got a huge grin on my faceMe too! Their banter between Emmy and Trystan…its perfection!I love everything about this book. Everything!OMG! Me too! Everything! Natasha Boyd has written a blinder! Love it!Well….you get the drift…we enjoyed this book immensely! We delighted in getting to know Emmy and Tristan thanks to a mix up at the airport which saw them grab each other’s mobile phones. With Trystan heading to South Carolina and Emmy heading to New York, they are unable to rectify the problem for a few days due to personal commitments.‘Maybe most people never meet that someone, or maybe they don’t recognize when they do. Maybe they pass them on the street and share a look, but they don’t realize the size of the opportunity they are passing. Or they do but their hands are tied.’Trystan L Montgomery initially came across as an uptight grumpy arse. A workaholic who seeks physical pleasure with no commitments or complications. However, as we came to know him, discovering so much more beneath the sexy and oh so VERY swoony Mr Montgomery!Emmaline Angelique Dubois can’t get a read on Trystan. He’s all over the place…sweet and flirty one minute, a grumpy cock the next. Emmy has her own problems and doesn’t need her developing feelings for this man adding to them, but is helpless to resist the handsome Trystan.‘I never saw him coming, but I knew he had quickly become an addiction that would be impossible to quit.’We loved the way in which Emmy and Trystan’s relationship developed, and the way we were captivated as we learnt the reasons for Trystan being an emotionally disconnected relationship-phobe.

    Lately I found that I really enjoy those “switch-my-phone-with-a-stranger” romances a lot – so it was a “No-Brainer” that when one of my GO-TO Authors releases a book in that area I had to read it. And what else can I say except that I loved it ….

And what else can I say except that I loved it …. Natasha Boyd takes a theme that has been used in other romances but as she did in Eversea she approaches it different than other authors making it feel fresh. After reading the first few pages I could even picture a cast for the movie … because somehow in my mind I ended up right in the middle of “Two Weeks Notice” with Sandra Bullock – please do not ask me why but that’s just how my brain works. Where most of those “phone-mix-up” novels tend to bring the leads together after only a few chapters Ms. Boyd keeps her leads apart for a really long time and it made the tension thick and the plot believable. I mean lets be honest in times of Facebook and Social Media there always comes that moment when you wonder if a person, that you feel close to but never met in person, would be just as you imagine. Or just think about how easy it is to tell someone you never met and most probably never will meet secrets you would not even share with your best friend. And be honest while you ask yourself that question. When you place aside the fact of the money this whole story could happen at anytime anywhere and that is what makes this story good. My favorite Moment ? The Moment when they actually meet (not the first time … #hahaha but the first time for real) That moment was a written masterpiece that left my heart beating … And my favorite Quote (amongst at least a dozen others) “The Suit-Monkey isn’t wearing a suit anymore” (or something along the lines of that)When you are looking for something romantic and funny, When you love well-written characters that give as good as they take … You should read Trystan and Emmys’ story ═══ PLEASE SUBSCRIBE / LIKE / FOLLOW US ════Blog : https://www.jerisbookattic.comFB Page : https://www.facebook.com/JerisBookAtticTwitter : https://twitter.com/JeriTRyanGoodreads : https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/2...Bloglovin : https://www.bloglovin.com/@jerisbooka...

Each of them having made their first impression of the other based on the 15 seconds they were in each others company. From there we have some pretty funny bantering and OMG moments right from the get go. Hippy-Chick and Suit Monkey certainly have zero in common. However they slowly get to know each as they help each other navigate via their phones and the information on them. Her in New York, and him in Charleston NC.This slow burn novel got to me. I really felt the creeping attraction and affection that builds between them. It felt genuine and real. And as we get to know Trystan, we see he isn't the hard ass CEO but a lonely vulnerable man who is generous and well meaning. And the heroine is a strong willed, huge-hearted softy. However, both of them have serious abandonment issues. How does it all work out?You'll have to read it to see.All in all this was a sweet easy read for me with no OW or OM drama.

    ★★ 4.5 stars! ★★Who knew that you could build an entire relationship via texting and conversations on the phone in a matter of days? I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't read Accidental Tryst!I loved the characters, their banter, their quirks and insecurities, the way that they were opposites who were perfectly suited for each other—pretty much everything in the book worked for me. This is a slow-building, texting-done-right romance and I loved how fun and unique it was![full review to come!]

    Sexy, intelligent and so witty!! Even the title is clever. This is romance with a heart! Loved Trystan and Emmy. I always know that Natasha Boyd is going to write something with nuanced characters, complex relationships that feel very real, funny dialogue and lots of sexy times. That is why 'Eversea' is one of my favorite series EVER and why I loved 'Accidental Tryst.' Emmy and Trystan accidentally switch phones at an airport just as she is headed out for New York. Trystan is visiting Charleston Sexy, intelligent and so witty!! Even the title is clever. This is romance with a heart! Loved Trystan and Emmy. I always know that Natasha Boyd is going to write something with nuanced characters, complex relationships that feel very real, funny dialogue and lots of sexy times. That is why 'Eversea' is one of my favorite series EVER and why I loved 'Accidental Tryst.' Emmy and Trystan accidentally switch phones at an airport just as she is headed out for New York. Trystan is visiting Charleston SC for what he prays is just a few days but as Fate would have it, ends up staying longer.Emmy is desperate to get her phone back - her whole LIFE is on that phone! Trystan is in the middle of a business deal and agrees to hold onto to Emmy's phone until she can get back.They start a hilaious text exchange that feels very clever and fresh and is very entertaining. Trystan is a serious commitment-phobe and meets women through dating apps. Which are all still open on his phone that is now in Emmy's possession. Emmy is the opposite of what Trystan is usually attracted to - she's funny, direct, warm an very family-oriented. But then he looks at her Instargam account on her phone. "I hate my stalker self right now, but I push on. And oh, I really shouldn't have done it. Holy hell." Natasha Boyd makes the whole accidental-phone-switching situation deel very creative and new even though I have seen this theme before. I loved the alternating POV's and texting because this author is GREAT at writing the male POV. "Now I know how she looks in a bikini, a visual I could have done without. Because, Christ, she is far from the skinny women I normally go for, but she is quite possibly, the sexiest woman I have ever seen. The image is seared onto my eyeballs. And even half an hour after I've put her phone safely on the other side of the damn room, I can still see it. I turn on the TV in the dark and flick mindlessly through channels looking for ESPN, hoping for lots and lots of sports stats. What have I been reduced to?" If you are looking for a well-written, very smart and funny romantic comedy with plenty of steam, you'll love 'Accidental Tryst'!! And the Charleston setting feels so beautiful and charming, I can't wait to visit. The ending was perfect and did not feel forced or unrealistic. This is a modern story of two very different people who literally stumbled into love and I was completely charmed by all the characters, especially Trystan and Emmy. “Can we be scared together?”

    4.5 stars. Here's my review. I delayed posting due to laptop & kindle issues. :(I really enjoyed this relationship from a distance trope. I know that some don't like the separation between the H & h. I thought that they really got to the heart of their hearts. I don't know how else to express it. The anticipation of them meeting again. I just loved the suspense and the sensual tease. Emmy seemed a little hapless. She just couldn't catch a break. She has such a good heart. She has more to 4.5 stars. Here's my review. I delayed posting due to laptop & kindle issues. :(I really enjoyed this relationship from a distance trope. I know that some don't like the separation between the H & h. I thought that they really got to the heart of their hearts. I don't know how else to express it. The anticipation of them meeting again. I just loved the suspense and the sensual tease. Emmy seemed a little hapless. She just couldn't catch a break. She has such a good heart. She has more to lose when the phones are switched. They both need their phones for their daily routine. It seems that Emmy needs it more, since she can't replace it and needs her "life- line" in order to help her foster uncle. Trystan had only seen Emmy for a few seconds at the airport. His impression of her, of course, was all wrong. Emmy heard Trystan at the airport for just a few minutes. He was talking on his phone. Of course, her first impression is all wrong too. This is dual 1st person POV. That was the only way that this could work. The first 50-60% is a lot of text and phone communicating. What was "said" (written in texts and emails & also phone calls) really got to the heart of what was going on each of their lives. I do love it when they meet again face to face. Trystan is way more financially stable. He still had to deal with a lot with his estranged family. I bought this book on a reco from Scandal/Scandaliscous blog. I had it on my kindle but was reminded of it again on FB. I can't believe that I waited to read it.The few supporting characters were great. I loved David- Emmy's foster uncle (wonderful and heartbreaking); Armand (fun and quite the enigma for a bff)- Emmy's friend. Beau-Trystan's cousin, he was a bit under developed but did play a key role toward the end of the book. I think that Beau's book is next. I loved the parts in So Carolina. The Charleston local color was spectacular. I've lately really loved stories set in the Carolinas. The people, the food, the history, the coastline.I wanted to yell, hug, and/or shake these two into getting over themselves. In real life I guess that I can understand that they're afraid. Both had their hearts broken. I really loved this story. The end came too fast. The epilogue was short. I want to read Beau's book & hopefully I'll catch up on Emmy and Trystan. I highly recommend. This is one book that I would read again.
