Publisher's Summary

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 Second Assistant Director (heavy on the assistant. Even heavier on the second.).
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 Doberman-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.

Snooze-fest

What would have made How Not to Fall in Love, Actually better?

Some kind of chemistry between any of the characters. I couldn't understand why any of the characters cared about each other. It was also very boring and humorless.

I wish that there was some kind of hint of romance throughout the entire book. I feel like the protagonist's romantic feelings just popped up out of nowhere. There was no driving tension throughout the book pushing the romance along.

The main character also seemed to have no drive whatsoever. She basically sat around doing nothing the entire book. Hard to care about her when she does nothing to help herself.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The voices, especially the male voices, were so stilted and odd and contrary to how the characters were characterized that it definitely took away from the book.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really. I listened to it to pass the time but it was a drag. I had to stop a few times because I just got so bored I couldn't bear it.

Any additional comments?

So so disappointing. Do not waste the credit.

I've found a new author that I really enjoy!

Both the author and narrator are fantastic. Very witty and smutty. Bring out more books!

Very funny!

Judging by the blurb and the picture on the cover, I was half expecting a run of the mill sappy chick lit light sort of book, but decided to give it a whirl anyway and was extremely pleasantly surprised. It's full of many likeable characters, is well paced and very, very funny. It contains some pretty fruity language and may be a little blue for some people's tastes, but I didn't find it gratuitously so and it genuinely extracted the illusive laugh out loud from me on several occasions - a rare thing indeed for me!! The narrator was also excellent and made great use of accents, I'll definitely seek out more of both hers and the authors work - top marks to both!
