Thank you to Netgalley and HQ Digital for the free copy in exchange for an honest review.
Accidentally in Love is an adult contemporary romance set in England that follows Katharine, a 35-year-old art curator who’s been looking forward to a promotion and a step up in her career for a long time. But when it comes down to it a man with better connections gets the job and that does it. She quits her job, breaks up with her not-quite-boyfriend and that big decision leads to this whole journey of opening her own art gallery and meeting Kit.
I found the story a bit difficult to get into at first – actually, scratch that, I wasn’t really into this book until a little over the halfway mark. After that, Katharine and Kit just up and stole my heart and I absolutely loved them together and how this adorable book ended. Their romance was dreamy, fun and so heartwarming!
The other hurdles along the way were pretty funny as well and I loved Katharine’s family! But the conflict was lacking, too cliché and easily-resolved it didn’t feel like a real conflict.
In regards to the writing style, I think the writing really shone in the dialogues. They were just so witty, funny, very engaging and I enjoyed them far more than the first-person narration.
Overall, Accidentally in Love was a pretty fun, easy romance but I really didn’t enjoy the first part of the book that much, hence the lower rating but I do recommend it to romance fans looking for something short and sweet to read!
Accidentally in Love by Belinda Missen will be published on September 11th 2020.
