Book Review: Accidental Attachment by Max Monroe
Accidental Attachment (It's a Funny Story #1) by Max Monroe

A successful writer accidentally sends her new (and super-dreamy) editor the wrong manuscript. Instead of the full-length paranormal novel she promised Longstrand Publishing, she sends the fan fiction she’s written about her crush…on himincluding every detail of the hot, steamy “physical activity” she’s fantasized about happening between them.

And Chase Dawson may be the hottest man alive and a super-talented editor to boot, but he’s completely oblivious that he’s the star of the manuscript he just convinced his boss to green-light.

Brooke Baker has been through a lot in her thirty-one years of life.

A divorce.
A career change.
A move to New York City from “small-town” Ohio.
Not to mention, she has a bit of a medical condition that involves occasional fainting spells, mild embarrassment, and the companionship of her adorable service dog and canine sidekick, Benji.

But none of it has prepared her for

None of it prepared her for Chase Dawson.

Strong jaw, blue eyes, cut muscles, and a perfect swoop of superhero-worthy black hair, Chase’s features are those of a book boyfriend and then some. Obviously, Brooke would know—she literally filled an entire manuscript with it.

A manuscript no one was ever supposed to see.

Will she survive two months of revising and editing the sizzling romance she imagined with Chase 
in extremely close quarters with him? Or will the constant white lies and overwhelming attraction make her spontaneously combust?

4 out of 5 stars

Accidental Attachment was a totally fun story with the best internal dialogue and awesome, laugh-out-loud moments. I had a blast reading it! I couldn't get enough of Brooke and Chase and the adorable Benji. It was incredibly entertaining with well-timed humor and witty scenes that had me smiling.

Brooke and Chase were fantastic! I instantly loved Brooke and learning all about her crush on Chase and how she sent him the wrong manuscript. Her thought process was hilarious and I liked her light, self-deprecating humor. Chase was sweet and caring and I loved how he was there for Brooke and championing her. The forced proximity situation was great as they traveled together. I love their awkward moments and how playful and flirty they could be and I adored it when their feelings were brought to the forefront. I laughed my way through this and I loved them getting to their HEA.

I loved the conversations Brooke had with her dog Benji, they were so sweet and cute. I also like how the book Brooke wrote played into the story. I liked when Chase’s feelings started to click for him and he was seeing similarities between them and the characters in the book. I enjoyed the overall build to them coming together but their slow-burn romance was a bit too slow for me. I loved the first half, it was lively and exciting and I enjoyed their banter and growing attraction. I thought it moved at a good pace and was filled with a lot of standout moments. I did like the second half, the fun scenes were still there but they felt a bit drawn out and repetitive. I longed for something to happen, some kind of drama or tension. I was thrilled when they finally broke through all the sexual tension and the heat exploded. I was happy to finally get to the drama and emotion.

This was a super entertaining, lighthearted, and easy read that had me laughing and grinning my way through. It’s a story filled with two charming and endearing characters, one loveable dog, and one motor home full of antics and good times!
