Twenty-six-year-old Kate’s marriage to Richard is in four weeks time, not the greatest moment for the man she loved as a teenager, Sam, to come waltzing back into her life.

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.

Breaking All The Rules is a romantic comedy set in Devon, England. Twenty six year old Kate is soon to be married, when Sam returns from eight years of travelling and throws her life into turmoil. Sam the best friend with whom she was supposed to go travelling, who took off to escape from a situation for which he blamed himself.

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.

Kate is about to get married to Richard but a chance encounter with her high school crush, Sam, has Kate thinking about IF she marries Richard in a few weeks time rather than when. Is she crazy to be thinking this way when Sam never even asked her out in Sixth Form? They say that the heart wants what the heart wants and Kate can't get Sam out of her head, so when Sam asks Kate out on a date she doesn't refuse but she neglects to tell him that she is engaged to be married in a few weeks. Clearly, she has doubts about the wedding but she doesn't want to let everyone down at this late stage.

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.

Breaking all the Rules is the new standalone romcom from Rachael Richey. I adored Rachael’s previous books and was a little worried with this new novel and that I’d be missing my favourite characters Gideon and Abi from Rachael’s The NightHawk series. However, I needed no fear as I soon fell in love with the characters from this story, especially Sam and was captivated by the storyline.

The story is set in Devon and Kate is 3 weeks away from her wedding to lawyer Richard. Kate and Richard have been dating 3 years and Kate was so happy when Richard proposed. However, when Kate bumps into Sam Somerville her life is about to get a whole lot more complicated. Sam was a good friend of Kate’s at school, secretly she had a massive crush on him. However, tragedy struck and Sam escaped the country and went travelling. It was led to believe that the reason Sam fled was due to his broken heart however, eight years on and he is back in the village wanting to catch up with Kate. Tragic events in the past are brought to the surface which go some way to explain certain directions that were made one fateful night.

Kate is gobsmacked to see Sam and her heart soon starts fluttering and she is left with feelings of nostalgia. Kate agrees to go for a catch up with him, as friends. After this catch up Kate is left pondering whether she actually still loves her fiancé Richard.

We follow Kate on her contemplative three week journey leading up to her wedding. Will her confused mind be clearer on the wedding day?

I loved this romcom. It was full of fun with some wonderful wit and humour in the storyline. There was a poignant side to the story full of miscommunicated feelings and it left you with thoughts of “what if.” Funny, heartwarming and very readable. A perfect read for fans of Lindsey Kelk, Carmen Reid, Helen Fielding and Sophie Kinsella.
