How Not to Fall in Love, Actually – by Catherine Bennetto

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb:

Emma has a job in television which is distinctly less glamourous and exciting than it sounds. She’s managed to claw her way up the ranks from Tea-Maker and Rubbish-Collector to 2nd Assistant Director (heavy on the ‘assistant’. Even heavier on the ‘2nd’).

So when she finds she’s accidentally very pregnant and at the same time accidentally very sacked (well, less accidentally: she did tell her boss to stick his job up his bum), she knows things are going to have to change.

Luckily she’s also accidentally the heir to a lovely cottage in Wimbledon, with a crazy Rottweiler-owning octogenarian as a neighbour and a rather sexy boy as an accidental tenant. But this baby is coming whether she likes it or not, and she needs to become the sort of person who can look after herself let alone another human being – and quickly.  

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

How Not to Fall in Love, Actually is Catherine Bennetto’s debut novel and it’s definitely a feel good romance, with lots of great moments.

The story follows Emma, who has a great job and life. Then everything changes! She finds herself accidentally pregnant, dumped and just without any idea of what to do and how to feel about it all.

She always has to think about her ex, her family starts bugging her about the baby and then there is Joe, who was engaged and now can’t live in his apartment, so he lives with Emma. It’s so much fun to follow these two around, we get to read about Joe’s story as well and that gives the book a great mixture.

It’s great to see Emma journey in this story and the different stages she goes through. Catherine Bennetto captured it in a very real and authentic way, which is wonderful.

The writing is funny with some LOL moments, it’s fresh, young and very exciting. A fuzzy, warm and sparkly story by a very talented author. I can’t wait to see what else Catherine Bennetto has in store for us.
