Sam has been travelling for the last eight years, but has returned to settle down and find a job. The moment the two clasp eyes on one another a spark ignites, but can Kate put temptation and her feelings to the back of her mind, and marry Richard?
Breaking all the Rules, is a humorous chick-lit. It has characters that you will adore, and a flawless plot. Kate, or Katy as Sam calls her, knows that she shouldn’t be thinking about her teenage crush the way that she does. She is determined not to let these feelings get in the way of her relationship with Richard. But Richard is so boring, and never around, and Sam is adventurous.
She hates her ‘temporary’ job, lives at home still, and gets treated like a little child by her mother. She is fed up with being bored! She dislikes her younger sister Vicky, who feels the same. Her best friend since school, Jen, is the voice of reason, a voice that Kate rarely listens too.
Richard is a little snooty, and puts his career as a lawyer first. He even says that he will not turn off his phone when they go away on their honeymoon, much to Kate’s disapproval. His parents, his mother mainly, are very condescending, and don’t feel that Kate fits in with their family.
Sam is the hunk of the book. He is the gorgeous, tanned man back from his travels around the world. He clearly loves Kate, and I feel that he always has, but something made him run away all those years ago, unfortunately not everything was how it seemed. When he finds out that Kate is getting married, he doesn’t try to pursue her, as it is her choice to decide her own future, not his.
The book is warm and funny from the first page to the last, with lots of witty moments scattered throughout. There were some great twists in the book, and plenty of red-herrings to throw you off track. It is a lighthearted, easy read, but one you can really sink your teeth into. If you love chick-lit/romance books, then this will be the perfect book for you.

In just four weeks Kate is due to marry Richard; safe, dependable and boring Richard. Surrounded by stifling wedding plans and an over-bearing mother, Kate finds herself agreeing to meet Sam for a drink. Neglecting to tell him that the hen night she’s going to on Friday is her own, Kate thrills at the escape from wedding preparations and yearns for the carefree opportunity Sam’s recent world travel offers. Convincing herself that seeing Sam is just wedding nerves and a last chance of freedom before she settles down, Kate continues to meet up with him. He opens her eyes to her relationship with Richard, yet she is deeply confused by her sense of duty to her family and the need to follow her own dreams.
Just how well does Kate know Richard? What secrets are they both keeping from each other and is Kate really the blushing bride to be? Can she transform from the petulant, down-trodden girl stuck in a temporary job, to a confident women who knows her own worth?
Recommended for those who enjoy #RomCom and the satisfying story ending you know you’ll get with this genre.
This is a charming love triangle about Kate, a spunky young woman in the final days of planning her wedding to the older, workaholic Richard who suddenly finds her world turned upside down when the ruggedly handsome, adventurous Sam returns to town and causes Kate to not only reevaluate her life and her career, but ultimately her happiness.
The writing is smooth and precise. The characters are sweet, quirky and appealing. And the plot is a wonderful blend of humour, familial drama, friendship, love and a little mystery.
I have to say that if you are a fan of well written, fun, lighthearted British chick-lit this is definitely the book for you.
The thing that elevates it above my standard beach romance read is the mystery element. I can't resist a mystery. The writer knows too how to use the Devon countryside to her advantage bringing a satisfyingly evocative and slightly sultry edge to the affair.. and making my desire to visit the south west stronger than ever.
Oh and I will say give Kate a chance. In the beginning I was feeling a little impatient with her but by the end she won me over. I think there is a little of her in all of us, we just probably don't like to admit it.
My review is based on an advance reading copy of Breaking All the Rules.
