Rebecca Jennings’s first London Season has been absolutely ruined, and one person alone is responsible: Mr. Ben Fortescue. If her new neighbor hadn’t startled her, she would never have broken her ankle, leaving her bored and frustrated at home in the country while her sister enters the London Season alone. Although, it was rather gallant of him to carry her home . . .

For his part, Ben feels terrible about the role he played in Miss Rebecca Jennings’s accident. In the days that follow their first disastrous meeting, he finds himself inexorably drawn to the surprising young woman—first out of guilt and then out of a stirring affection. But Ben hides a secret: he has not been completely forthright about his identity or about the dark secrets of his past that would make it impossible for romance to blossom with Miss Jennings. Despite his love for her, he knows he must let her go.

With her ankle finally healed but her heart now broken, Rebecca is left with little choice but to throw herself into the Season. With eligible men circling this late addition to the Marriage Mart, it seems that Rebecca will have no shortage of suitors. If only her heart were free to give.

Book Review:

This was a sweet book! I was super excited to read this book because I loved The Duke Meets His Match! I was thrilled to read more about the Jennings family! An Accidental Romance is by Karen Tuft. Okay so I adore the Jennings family, they are a lot of fun and I love their relationships. They clearly love each other and yet they still mess with each other, it reminds me of my own siblings. I was excited to get to read Rebecca’s book and see this lovely family again. 

Rebecca Jennings is ecstatic to finally be able to come out in Society, however a broken ankle leaves her stranded at home. It was the new neighbor’s fault that this happened after all if he hadn’t startled her, she wouldn’t have fallen. Ben Fortescue feels terrible for his part in Miss Rebecca Jennings’ accident and strives to make it up to her by visiting. However he never expected to find himself trhan to the surprising young women. Will Ben be able to let go of his past and find love? Will Rebecca be able to break through Ben’s walls?

Rebecca was a sweetheart, I loved how she cared for her family but she also stood up for herself. Rebecca was a lot of fun and it was cute to read about her interacting with Ben and falling in love. She didn’t plan on falling in love, but as she spent more time with him, she began to see the kind man hidden behind his mask. I loved how Rebecca wasn’t one to be pushed around and how she encouraged Ben to be the best person he could be no matter his past.

Ben was also kind, I liked how he thought of Rebecca and encouraged her when she was down because of her ankle. However Ben had to work through the demons of his past, he had been hurt before and he was a bit weary of others. But Rebecca helped him see the good in people and helped him reconcile with his past. It was sweet to read about Ben interacting with Rebecca’s family and reading about them falling in love. 

Rebecca and Ben had a cute relationship and it was fun to read about them falling in love because they didn’t plan on it. Rebecca had high hopes to go to the Season, while Ben was just trying to get by. I also adored Rebecca’s family and I hope that there are more books to come about the remaining siblings! 

I really enjoyed An Accidental Romance! It had romance, family and lovely characters! I would totally recommend it! An Accidental Romance is a clean historical romance. 

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the publisher through Netgalley. All views expressed are only my honest opinion, a positive review was not required.
