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.

the narrator was perfect! the storyline perfect! the characters hilarious and well... perfect! absolutely devoured this book and when I purchased audio... I couldn't push pause! loved this story and quirky characters and funny dialogue. will listen to again and recommend! (I'm very very picky, so 5 stars is very rare for me)
p.s. the only fault if any really was the development of feeling between heroine and Joe. felt there needed to be more said about how they connected. a progression of feelings.
This is the most enjoyable book I read in ages. It is a laugh out loud, sweet love story with loveable characters filled with flaws. The narrator is the cherry on top- perfectly interpreted.
"A fantastically, funny novel"
At last – a rom-com novel that isn't saccharine, full of stereotypes and churns out the same tired out plot.
How Not to Fall in Love, Actually is a fun, feel good novel full of hilarious moments, well observed situations and people, an extremely likeable, relatable heroine and a page turning original plot. I loved this book and am looking forward to the next one already.
It's the perfect antidote to all the mad, sad and scary things that are going on in the world at the moment. You're in for a treat.
