Yup, As Cute As I Expected It To Be
5 out of 5 stars
I honestly didn’t realize when I picked up A Convenient Arrangement that it was going to be set with the same people and at the same time, but I’m glad I picked that one up and randomly read it before this one. I just finished it not too long ago and now I know what I’m in for. I know that Rey and Clevenger are going to make me fall head-over-heels for these characters and likely make me bawl towards the end of it.
I didn’t even realize until a bit into the book that this was set in the same time and place as A Convenient Arrangement, but there was a line where she talked about the cuffing chronicles and I was like “wait a second!”. Then I saw that it was a Mile High City Romance and I checked out a review that talked about how it was a story that we heard a bit about – but expounded. It was and was as cute as I expected it to be.
I love the opening of this being about lesbians loving to move in together quickly – that stereotype, while one, was funny to hear a wlw romance author embrace, but also use to the advantage (or disadvantage) of the reader. Amelia was such a sweetheart – a golden retriever-like woman who was happy helping others. She loves her grandmother and wants to do everything in her power to not end up alone. Finn on the other hand doesn’t want to settle down and seems to have her foot in two places at once. One in Denver and one at home in South Dakota with her family on the family ranch.
Amelia is in an accident and Finn was the paramedic to come to her rescue. Things keep happening after where Finn seems to continuously be in her orbit. I loved the slow-burn part of the book. Especially where they both try and be friends because they really enjoy each other’s company. I will say that I wasn’t in full-on tears/sobbing like I was in the other book in this series, but I was definitely heartbroken for a while. Clevenger and Rey did a great job making me fall in love with both women and wanting nothing but the best for both of them.
Love, Accidentally was fun and enjoyable from beginning to end. I absolutely blew through it with a smile on my face for most of it. Add in Cradens excellent narration and you have another book in this genre that I fell in love with early and couldn’t wait to see how it ended.
Sure, lesbians love to bring a U-Haul on the second date. But what happens when the U-Haul crashes?
For Amelia Stone, it’s a literal question as much as a figurative one. When plans to move in with her girlfriend go sideways, she’s left with more questions about their future than answers. It doesn’t help that she’s spending far more time with the paramedic who came to her rescue than the woman she’s supposed to be in love with.
When Finn Douglas responds to a routine traffic accident, the last thing she’s looking for is love. But something about Amelia pulls her in. The more time they spend together, the more it feels like Amelia might be the one. If only Amelia didn’t have her life all planned out with a woman who isn’t Finn.
Contains mature themes.
