New On My Shelf This Week

This is the final featured novel downloaded for my selection of February Blog Tours, organised by the lovely Melanie from Aria Fiction. Another eye-catching cover compliments this book, which although it is generally outside my regular reading genres, is somehow quite intriguing.

ACCIDENTALLY IN LOVE

Cover Image Of 'Accidentally In Love' By Anna PremoliA funny romantic comedy about how opposites definitely do attract…

Sara Di Giovanni is a successful lawyer in New York City: she is the star of her profession, an excellent role model to her very vivacious little sister, but has so far been unlucky in love…

Ethan Phelps is the rich playboy trouble-maker whose only talent in life is spending money and dating women… That is until Ethan’s father dies with no will to his name, leaving his two sons the legal heirs to his billion-dollar company.

Sara is forced to become the court-appointed guardian to handle Ethan’s share of the fortune, as his family do not trust him to manage it himself. Sara thinks it should be easy, but it’s not so simple when Ethan is determined to get rid of her by whatever means necessary…

What ensues is a dramatic and hilarious power-play between Sara and Ethan… but what will happen when feelings start to get in the way?

ANNA PREMOLI

Image Of Author Anna PremoliAnna was born in 1980 in Croatia, but moved to Milan in 1987. In fact she now feels rather Milanese. During the glorious years of high school she met what then, in 2005, became her husband, aka the man who self-published her novels instead of giving her flowers.

She graduated from Bocconi in Economics of financial markets and has always worked in the sector: She started at JPMorgan in the field of asset management and risk management, then moved to private banking where she dealt with investments in banking for over a decade, while for some time now she has been responsible for financial investments for a private equity holding company.

The writing arrived in 2009 by chance, after a terrible period of mad volatility due to the failure of Lehman and as an ‘anti-stress method’ during her pregnancy. The volatility of the markets since then has never abandoned her, not even in her writing. The two things in some way balance her days.

She works and lives in Milan with her husband Alessandro and her son Marco, the two men of her life.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

    • I think that Aria Fiction will have published their fair share of new light, contemporary romances during February and I shall definitely be taking a rest from the blog tour circuit for the genre come February 23rd, when my last post publishes.

      This style of lightweight reading does make a welcome change from time to time, however my virtual shelf now has enough similar story lines to keep me going for some time!

      Thanks for stopping by and Happy Reading 🙂

  • Yes, I thought this seemed a bit different for you 🙂 I like a rom/com once in a while so I’ll keep the title in mind. Have a good week, Yvonne.

    • Hi Mary,

      I am definitely left wondering how two people with such differing personalities, values and agendas are ever going to get along, let alone be attracted to one another.

      Given the environment and types of companies Anna has worked for, for so much of her life, perhaps some elements of this storyline are based on true events she has encountered?

      Thanks for visiting and have a great week 🙂

    • I do enjoy reading just about any genre of book Kathy, although I do have my own personal favourites, as I imagine we all do!

      Anna is not a new author to the scene and her previous books have met with great success and acclaim from within the industry.

      I can imagine that Anna enjoys writing such lighthearted story lines, in order to counter the stresses and strains of her day job.

      Thanks for the comment and enjoy your week 🙂

    • Hi Jennifer,

      I couldn’t agree more. Sometimes I can read two or three murders or thrillers in a row, but every now and then I need something lighthearted and uplifting, just to ring the changes a bit.

      I don’t generally veer as far towards the opposite end of the reading spectrum to take in romcoms, but hey! I’m always up for a challenge and who knows, I might enjoy it 🙂

      Happy Reading 🙂

    • This is definitely a ‘rainy day’ kind of book, for when I really can’t make up my mind what to read next!

      As mother-in-law and I are on the same Kindle account, she also has this book on her device and is lining herself up to read it very soon, so at least word is going to be spread about it, which can surely only be good for promoting both book and author!

      Thanks for the comment and I hope that you have some great reading lined up for this week 🙂

  • I agree with the others that this is certainly not what I expect you to read (myself, either, for that matter)… but can admit it does have some appeal.

    I bet it can provide some interesting excerpts for your Teaser Tuesday meme. 🙂

    • Hi Kelly,

      I know you generally get to read my responses to your comments, so let me start off by apologising for the lateness of my reply. Work has been so frantic this week, that by the time we have eaten a meal in the evenings, I have found myself only answering one or two comments a night, before waking myself up as I headbutt the keyboard!! I would like to think that we are good enough blogging friends, that you won’t hold it against me, so I admit that I usually respond to your comments last 🙂

      I have been a little coerced into taking part in so many Blog Tours this month, especially for so many books in genres I don’t generally read en masse. My two favourite books from the selection are undoubtedly ‘The Runaway Wife’ by Rosie Clarke and ‘Best Friends’ by Carys Jones. I only hope that I can get some quality post writing time in soon, as my deadlines are approaching fast!

      As you so rightly point out though, the romcoms in particular will provide some great excerpts to share for my ‘Book Beginnings On Friday’ and ‘Tuesday Teaser’ memes.

      Thanks for your patience and for taking the trouble to comment in the first place. Please don’t stop, as I do read and enjoy them all 🙂

      • No offense taken. In fact, I usually know the best time to come back and look for a reply is once you’ve commented on my current post(s). 😉

        Yep. By now I certainly consider us “friends”. 🙂

    • The fact that a high powered lawyer is charged with supervising the financial affairs of another adult who is of sound mind, is sure to set sparks flying, and the added distraction that this particular lawyer is female and very successful, is certainly going to stir up the mix.

      Tempers will no doubt be frayed and I’m sure you are right that there will be some fun too!

      Thanks for taking the time to stop by and comment and Happy Reading this week 🙂

    • In some ways, this story line would only work if it was set in a large cosmopolitan city, where most people live in their own little world and on the whole no one really cares what anyone else is doing, or how they are behaving.

      On the other hand, if you were as ‘out there’, manipulative and as much a ‘jack the lad’ as Ethan obviously is, then to have your financial freedom curtailed so publicly, and by a woman at that, would be humiliating to say the least and definitely not to be tolerated!

      I wonder if this story is going to reveal anything about the seedy underbelly of life in this great city!

      Another one of those ‘rainy day’ books, thanks for sharing your thoughts 🙂

    • Hi Martha,

      I always enjoy reading about your military battles and can appreciate a good storyline, even though the genres you read definitely aren’t on my own wish list.

      I have to say, that if push came to shove, I would choose to read from the lighter contemporary romances and romcoms, rather than fantasy or science fiction, although murder/mysteries and suspense/thrillers will always be right at the top of my list.

      Have a great week and Happy Reading 🙂

    • Hi Sass,

      Whilst I am not a cover snob, I do like it if the cover art does in some way, reflect the story line of the book. Cover artists are definitely becoming more creative and adventurous, ably borne out by this simple, yet very effective cover.

      Thanks for taking the time to stop by and Happy Reading 🙂
