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.
After a few dates with Sam, Kate decides to make some effort with Richard and makes a spur of the moment trip to London. Richard isn't exactly overjoyed to see her and events lead Kate to have further doubts about the wedding. Spending more time with Sam puts Kate's head and heart in a tizz, although Sam now knows that Kate is about to married. How does Sam really feel about Kate? Does Kate really know Richard at all? This is one problem that cake won't solve although it doesn't stop cake-loving Kate from having a slice or two!
Breaking All the Rules is written in the same warm and easy flowing manner as we have come to know and love from Rachael Richey. I really felt as if I knew all of the characters and welcomed them as if they were old friends. I felt like I was part of Kate's family so I was willing her to wake up and think of herself for a change; you only get one shot at life so you need to make the best of it. I wanted Richard to man up a bit too as he just felt a bit like a deflated balloon, I think I would have preferred him to turn out to be a bit of a cad.
I do think that the cover could do with a makeover as I don't think I would have picked it up if I hadn't read the author's previous work. I know we are told that we shouldn't judge a book by its cover but unfortunately people often do, which will result in them missing out on this little gem. It's not often that you get such a page-turner outside of the thriller genre, but the pages turn effortlessly as Kate gets herself in so many scrapes as her wedding day rapidly approaches.
A superb RomCom with believable and likeable characters that I think is a bit of a modern fairytale - although I'm not telling you whether Kate gets a happy ending or not, but I'm sure she'll get some cake! If this doesn't leave you reminiscing about your own high school crush, you must have a heart of stone.
I chose to read an ARC and this is my honest and unbiased opinion.
