ARC Review: Accidentally in Love by Belinda Missen

Thank you so much to Netgalley and HQ Digital for letting me read and review Accidentally in Love early! This book was pretty different from the other books I’ve been reading recently because it wasn’t really a romance novel- like there was some romance in it, but it was more about Katie (our main character) getting out of the gallery that’s passed her over for the promotion that she deserves three times and starting her own gallery. She doesn’t have to care about men, because they’re not in the big picture right now. She’s focusing more on her career and her family, and honestly, I loved that. 

Accidentally in Love 3.5/5 Stars

Summary from Goodreads: In the space of a week, Katharine Patterson has quit her job, decided to move back home, and broken up with the guy she thought was the one.

No big deal.

Because Katharine has a plan. She’s going to open her own art gallery, just like she’s always wanted. What she’s not going to do is worry about boyfriends.

Then she meets Kit, a handsome and talented local artist. He might be the most stubborn person Katharine has ever met. He might also make her feel like no one ever has before.

And Katharine might be about to fall accidentally in love… 

Overall, this was a pretty good book. Like am I going to go out and scream from the rooftops about how much I loved it? Not really, but I did enjoy it while I was reading it. I loved Katie’s relationship with her brother and her dad. I also really liked how she just picked up and started her own gallery- that took guts and immense courage, which I know a lot of us don’t have. I’m always so in awe of people who start their own business, because man, it’s so much pressure and you have nothing to fall back on during hard times or if things don’t really work out! And doing it during the same week that you get broken up with/the week you end a dead end relationship- man, that’s intense! I thought Katie and John’s relationship was sad, but it’s definitely a dead end relationship where the guy doesn’t want to commit and the woman is bending more than she should and I’ve seen it so many times (in my own life- curse you situationships. You’re the worst!). This was definitely a good, quick read that made me feel good and empowered, but wasn’t what I was expecting going into it (which was more romance, which is why I gave it 3.5 stars).
