Holly has spent her whole life as a walking disaster, from running into walls, tripping over invisible objects, and always being in the wrong place at the wrong time. When a seemingly normal outing taking her overly opinionated Corgi for a walk resulted in an object to the face, she didn’t think her day could get any worse. The moment she opened her eyes and saw the Adonis ...more

Carol [Goodreads Addict]
Stumbling Into Him is book one in the Stumbling Through Life series by Molly O’Hare. This is my very first book by Molly and what a joy this book was.

Holly Flanagan is a librarian and mom to a very spoiled Corgi. Holly sees herself as a bigger girl, who was clumsy to a fault. She couldn’t seem to walk across a room without tripping over some invisible object. Holly’s father can no longer work and is partially disabled so Holly spends any free time she has doing what she can for him. Holly only

"Stumbling Into Him" By Mollie O'Hare was a lovely feel-good humorous romantic comedy that ticked all my boxes and more.
The first thing I have read by this particular author it certainly won't be the last.
I found it a delightful tale that definitely brought an easy smile to my face.
Telling the story of veterinarian Ben and his sexy Librarian Holly, and the pitfalls these two new lovers encounter along the way.

Reading Stumbling Into Him is like getting the greatest hug in the world. Overflowing with feel good sweetness and laugh out loud humor! My face hurts from the nonstop smile I’ve been wearing the entire time I was reading this. You could be having the worst day ever, but if you pick up this book I guarantee it will cure whatever ails you. It’s like Molly O’Hare sat down and said “Today I’m going to bring pure happiness to the world” when she started writing this. Stumbling Into Him is not only s ...more

When Holly (the most uncoordinated and klutzy woman of the year!) literally gets hit in the face (ok…it wasn’t on purpose, and it was with a Frisbee…at a dog park) her life changes!

Although Ben is a veterinarian, he offers to take Holly back to his clinic to check her out, and reluctantly she agrees. She feels he is doing it out of sympathy, as she is curvy, and he is hot! She doesn’t realize he is attracted to her instantly!

The supporting characters in this story were fabulous! From Holly’s d

What is there not to love? A hero who is a vet, a corgi called Mr waffles, and a kitty nicknamed Twitch who is a special needs kitty. That's a perfect mix right there!
It was so cute how Ben would call Holly 'Grace' because of her clumsiness (she's full of grace - get it?). When the potential for them to be pulled apart came along, I really thought it was all going to go to hell in a hand basket, but it - wait, maybe you need to read it for yourself to find out what happened *wink* All I can say

Holly and Ben meet under some not so great circumstances. Of course we find out that Holly is prone to bouts of bad luck and is quite uncoordinated. As romantic comedies go I have to say this is one of the funnier ones I have read. I can picture Ben’s smiles, smirks and looks old adoration and lust towards Holly. I can also picture her stumbling, tripping, and looks of frustration and Ben’s laughing at her mishaps. This is an unlikely couple to say the least with a strong love of

Stumbling Into Him is a hilarious and swoon-worthy rom-com.
Holly is a klutz, especially in inopportune times. She also has the most hilarious dog named Waffles or Lord Waffles. Her coworker Mildred is who I look up to become in the future. *le sigh*
Ben is a sexy vet, who has an Aussie named Ripley, with a mother who I imagine as Cruella De Vil. She's easy to hate like that too.
Ben and Holly's relationship is an instant-lust turned insta-love. The chemistry between these two is amazing. I may h

Hello Ben, welcome to my book boyfriend dungeon, enjoy your stay. ;)

This was such a light and fun read. Holly was hilarious, as was Mildred, lol and she’s just a side character and 60! I want her as my mom lol. I also had a huge craving for waffles and seriously made some just because of that craving I got while reading. I blame the author. Maybe called her out on it too, lol.

The chemistry between Ben and Holly was off the charts. That man, whew, that man was pure alpha dominance. He fell for H

This book wasn't for me. I tried to pick this up- T W I C E. It didn't really work for me.

Probably an isolated case.
Probably it's not the book- it might be just me.

NOTE: Unfortunately due to my hectic schedule, I will be unable to make long and detailed reviews like before. However, I will try to do my very best to at least take the time to write something. Brief yet, nonetheless.

4.75 Laughing stars for this book. What a beautiful romantic comedy.

What a way to meet a "Greek god" by slamming head on into each other. Ouch! Well anyway that was how Holly and Ben met. This poor woman was dished all the bad luck one could find. Holly is such a sweet girl who works at the Library as a Librarian. Ben is also a very nice guy who owns his own Veterinary Practice. Ben and Holly are like a

Stumbling Into Him was a quick cute read. With a colorful cast of characters who stole my heart from her father Henry to Ripley and of course Lord Waffles the corgi.

Holly was a literal train wreck. The girl was down more than she was up. While out taking Lord Waffles for a walk she takes a frisbee to the face. The god standing above her is way out of her league well according to Holly any way.

Ben is a well loved Veterinarian. He is out with his beloved shepherd Ripley when he colli

What a nice little surprise I stumbled upon with this book/author. This was my first read by this author and I'm NOT disappointed.

The H, Ben was gone for the h, Holly since their first meet. He pretty much latched onto her on the first page and didn't let go for the rest of the book. She was a massive klutz, always falling over invisible things. The only drama came in the form of Ben's mother, who was a horrid woman but he doesn't let her get away with hurting his

If you like curvy heroines and sweet alpha heroes Stumbling Into Him is the perfect read for you! It was a sexy, sweet read with lots of funnies.

I really loved Holly aka Grace. Her devotion to her father and her pet Corgi, Lord Waffles, was one of my favorite parts. Her compassion was a perfect match to Ben’s. I really loved them together.

You also can’t help but love Ben. It was basically love at first frisbee hit for him—even with a bloody lip and a chipped tooth Holly drew him in. The attract

There sure is a lot of shouting in the library! Lots of hilarious, ridiculous lines in this, an insecure BBW, slapstick klutziness, cartoon-evil mother character, Mildred is a gem, and the whole thing is just absurd because men like Ben do not exist. Of course I enjoyed it.

One unresolved plot point: (view spoiler)

Stumbling Into Him has it all. Romance, comedy, and heart-warming moments. Ben is the kind of guy any girl wants to fall in love with. He's kind, compassionate, and sexy. And Holly is a girl you want to be best friends with. She'll make you laugh and would do anything for you. I loved Holly's dad. He was the voice of reason and brutally honest. Lord Waffles stole the show in so many moments. This is a fabulous read, and I can't wait to see what's next from Molly O'Hare. ...more

I sat down one night to just read the first few pages and see what Stumbling Into Him was all about. An hour later, I had to force myself to put the book down.
Holly is a librarian with a quick wit, a weakness for animals, body issues and a penchant for falling. Which she does, quite often. However - on one occasion she literally falls into the arms of Ben, the Adonis who happens to be a veterinarian. I have to say - I have seen this s

I always go into RomComs by new to me authors with a bit of cynicism, but that cynical side quickly flew by the wayside with this one. Molly O'Hare has wonderfully blended a sweet romance with laugh out loud funny. The romance does progress quickly, almost crossing into instalove, but for Ben and Holly, it just plain works. The sassy klutz that is Holly compliments Ben's super sweetness and they are absolutely adorable together. I had to smile every time Ben called Holly, 'Grace' (I've called my ...more

When Holly is hit with a runaway Frisbee, its nothing new for her, she is used to things like that happening. What she didn't expect was the owner of the Frisbee to actually own up and not only apologize but make sure that she was ok; it doesn't hurt that Ben finds her super attractive. But for Holly, she doesn't need this distraction, she has enough worries and troubles without Ben coming into the mix. Ben doesn't see it this way and in fact sees that Holly is just w

Loved this couple! Ben is a swoon worthy vet that falls for the girl who falls over her own feet.
He proves to her that nice guys can and will fall for what she classes herself as.

This was a cute romance about a very clumsy lady who just can’t catch a break with her clumsiness but it does help her gain the attention of her sexy hero. It was a cute and quick read with some drama but nothing over the top. I loved it and would recommend to anyone looking for a light sexy read.

Rom Coms are my all time favorite genre and Molly O'Hare knocks it out of the park with this one. Ben and Holly have certainly the most interesting Meet-Cute and I was literally grinning from ear to ear as I read their courtship. Their playful banter is seriously amazing and holy shit the sex is FIRE. And Ben is seriously so sweet and kind it melted my heart. He is the most perfect book boyfriend! Also, Mildred and Henry were THE BEST secondary characters. Serious

It’s so rare to find a book that leaves you feeling so happy and keeps you smiling throughout. Stumbling Into Him by Molly O’Hare does exactly that and more. My cheeks are still sore from so much laughing and smiling and I’m not even a bit sorry! The characters are fantastically relatable and real. I mean, Holly pretty much is all of us. From her good heart to her clumsiness, there’s a bit of her in us all. Or a lot of you’re me, but moving on. Ben was a swoon-worthy as hell Book boyfriend. Firs ...more

Holly Flannigan was a walking klutz to say the least. If there was a way for her to trip, fall or stumble, even on invisible rocks, Holly had found it. When she was a small child, her mother had died of cancer. Now grown, she had taken on the responsibility of taking care of her dad, who had had a stroke leaving his left side injured. Working at the library barely kept things going, but he and lord Waffles were Holly's world.

This story of Holly (Grace....love the nickname!) and Ben is just, just well perfect!

I think all of us gals have a little bit of Holly in us. A bit insecure, a bit clumsy and just trying to find a place in the world.  She is my hero in every sense of the world!
