    Light hearted small town romance

    Breaking Emily’s Rules by Heatherly Bell was my first time reading this author and I really enjoyed this small town, temporary, no strings, romance between two really likeable characters. The book is well written and had a steady plot that slowly develops with enough twists to keep you intrigued from start to finish. Stone and Emma, who tell the book through dual point of view, have an instant attraction to each other as soon as their eyes meet. Emma, a klutzy good girl with a stickler for her rules, and Stone, a former Air Force pilot temporarily passing through, appear at first as complete opposites but that soon changes as they get to know each other and when Emma finally decides to try and live ‘wildly’. The relationship between the two is a bit of a slow burn type, although the chemistry between them is undeniable. Having the two work together in a student / teacher role added a fun but good foundation to the characters developing their relationship and adding a level of believability to the feelings that arise. Both characters were likeable and through the various sub-characters used, who were also reasonably likeable, they helped to develop the two main characters further. Breaking Emily’s Rules is a relatively light hearted small town romance, with an undertone of tension, that is well written with a steady plot and good flow. Things do heat up between the two characters but the steamy scenes are few in comparison to the whole book and only help emphasise the relationship and attraction between the two characters rather than override the plot. It can be read as a standalone as it has a HEA for Stone and Emma, with an epilogue cementing the HEA and tying up things in their story. Finally, while Stone and Emma’s story is told from their point of view, you almost get two books in one as there is a sub-plot line told from Emma’s sister Molly’s perspective regarding her own separate story that is going on at the same time as the main plot. It’s only a couple of scenes but important glimpses to tell her story. It is a sweet bonus read but doesn’t take too much away from the main plot. Overall, this is a well written small town romance that I enjoyed and would recommend to any romance fans out there. I will definitely keep a look out for more books by Heatherly Bell. *I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.
