⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ REVIEW: Accidentally Amy by Lynn Painter

Did I read this because of that adorable cover? 100%, but I don’t regret it. Absolutely FILLED with playful banter, this low angst rom com gets the chemistry right. I loved how much texting and conversation there was between the characters, which made it easy to see all of the reasons they’re perfect together. There’s not much that I didn’t like about the story, though it certainly could’ve been longer – this was originally written as a serial for a newsletter, which explains the short length and sheer speed of every interaction. I think extending some of the scenes (and doing a more thorough check for typos) would’ve done wonders for the book, but this was easygoing, lighthearted and sexy, so I’m not complaining.

The story follows Izzy, a woman who is just starting a new job. When the line at the coffee shop is taking too long, she finds herself claiming an abandoned drink meant for someone named Amy. So when Izzy accidentally dumps that drink all over a handsome stranger, he’s under the impression that the cute girl he just had the perfect meet cute with is named Amy. They exchange numbers and things are looking up… until Izzy discovers that Blake is her new boss’s boss. As someone who works in HR, Blake is unwilling to cross any lines with an employee, so he tries to cut off contact. But when Izzy suggests that they exchange a few friendly texts with her playing the role of Starbucks Amy, well, he can’t seem to resist. As the two become texting buddies, neither one can forget the sparks that ignite whenever they’re together.

Told in third person POV from both characters’ perspectives, this is a super cute and easygoing read. I can see why it worked so well as a serial – each chapter is just filled to the brim with adorable interactions. I do wish that things didn’t move quite so quickly, but that’s really my only complaint. It’s just the kind of lighthearted read that you can binge in one sitting, and it’s got so many fun, fall vibes and swoony moments. Blake makes a great cinnamon roll hero, and you can feel the playfulness in every page. Izzy is quirky in a way that works. It’s pretty sexy, with numerous (vaguely described) steamy scenes. I personally would’ve enjoyed more descriptive spice, but that’s just me. I had a fun time reading this, though another 50 pages and a few minor tweaks would’ve really taken it up a notch.

Blurb:

IT STARTED WITH A CUP…

Isabella Shay is usually a very honest person. But when she’s running late for her first day at a dream job and the barista yells for “Amy” 3x with no answer, she does the unthinkable.

Izzy takes that PSL.

It’s the exact drink she ordered and paid for, only waaaay further ahead in the line, so she mutters “I’m Amy” and grabs the cup. But when she turns around and runs directly into the most attractive man she’s ever seen, spilling the drink all over his GQ shirt and tie, she ends up having the ultimate meet-cute. Sparks fly and things feel beyond promising until he says the words, “See you tomorrow, Amy.”

Uh, oh – she’ll definitely have to straighten him out the following day.

Only when she gets to her new office and meets the VP of her department, it is none other than Blake Phillips – the hottie from Starbucks. And the man might’ve been charming to “Amy,” but he is an arrogant grump to Izzy, an arrogant grump who dos not find her explanation funny at all.

MEET CUTE + GRUMPY/SUNSHINE + FRIENDS-TO-LOVERS = ACCIDENTALLY AMY
