✱✱Book Review✱✱ Accidentally in Love by Claudia Burgoa

From USA Today bestselling author Claudia Burgoa comes a new best friend’s sister, forbidden romance filled with humor and angsty at times.

It all started on a dating app and a fake name.

Instead of a hot hook-up, I end up face-to-face with Kingston St. James.

He’s one of the most striking and wealthy men in Seattle—as well as my brother’s best friend.

Logic dictates I walk away, but curiosity wins and we follow Myka’s Easy Rules for Healthy Hookups:

Rule #1: Don’t expect anything.

Rule #2: Never wish for more.

Rule #3: Don’t swoon.

Rule #4: Don’t give endearing nicknames to your hookup.

Rule #5: Don’t be possessive, your hookup doesn't belong to you.

Confession time: I’m making up the rules as we go.

And surprise, surprise, this casual fling rapidly evolves into a friend-with-pretty-weird-benefits (and not the sexy kind).

Kingston is suddenly breaking the hookup rules. He’s all charm and affection, turning possessive and… probably hoping for more than just a fling.

We accidentally find ourselves tangled in something more than just a fling. It’s something dangerously close to love.

We might be heading into a collision where the most beautiful accident or the most disastrous end might happen.

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Kingston and Myka! I thoroughly enjoyed their story, and it's surprisingly light on angst for Claudia Burgoa. Don't get me wrong, there's still some angst, but this one is a totally entertaining and engaging romance that is perfect for a lazy weekend read. King and Myka are so good together, and I loved their banter. I can always count on Claudia Burgoa to include some wit and humor, and I found that in this one too. This "just a fling" romance was a great pick me up when I needed it, and it's the kind of romance I could read over and over. There are a lot of characters from Claudia's world of romance, with some crossing over for a quick visit and some being important parts of this one. If you're familiar with this author's books, you'll recognize at least a few of these characters. I enjoyed getting to catch up with some past favorites, and now, I have King and Myka to hopefully see again in future books. 

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Jason Clarke and Vivienne LaRue give voice to the characters in Accidentally in Love, and they do a terrific job with both the emotion and the banter between the characters. This is my first time listening to Vivienne LaRue, and she does not disappoint. Myka's snark comes through loud and clear, as well as her hesitance when it comes to relationships. Jason Clarke is not new to me at all, and the more I listen to that voice, the more I like what I hear. He captures the nuance of the story, and his voice is as swoony as Kingston!
