Accidentally in Love

(MacGregor Brothers Brewing Company #1)

4.31  ·  Rating details ·  65 ratings  ·  43 reviews
At thirty-five and single, I’m tired of the dating game. Tired of men who look at me and say, “You’d be prettier if you shed a few pounds.”

There’s only one man I want a future with — my grouchy friends with benefits, Nolan. But he’s adamant about keeping things casual.

All that changes when one night we get careless, and those pink lines show up on the pregnancy test months

Avery & Nolan have been friends with benefits for the past 2-years, never putting a label on what they have. Nolan is divorced and doesn’t want to fail another woman and Avery doesn’t want to force anyone to be with her, putting them both at an impasse.

After one careless night, Avery ends up pregnant and Nolan wants nothing more than to marry Avery and take care of their little family. Avery knows her heart is with Nolan, but she’s scared that he’s only with her out of obligation & not love…

Review: I’m always so wary of surprise pregnancies and how they’ll be handled by the two characters when thrust into that situation, but I was pleasantly surprised by how it all worked out.

This is the first book in the MacGregor Brothers Brewing Company series. It's a friends to lovers accidental pregnancy romance. They drove me crazy throughout most of the book. They were friends with benefits for two never realizing that they had feelings for each other and quite honestly what they had was a relationship. When Avery finds out she's pregnant Nolan decides that he wants to be a part of it all. He wants to marry Avery because he loves her, Avery's convinced that he's with her becau ...more

Only a couple weeks left before this one releases! I love this book so much, can't wait for everyone else to fall in love with Nolan and Avery too!

Ms. Flynn does undeclared love very well.  So good, in fact, that it's aggravating to read.  Let me just give a variant on the song When a Man Loves a Woman...for God's sake, tell her.

Communication, people. There is nothing so frustrating as a stubborn man and woman convinced they are not deserving of each other. Add to that they just wallow in their misery without expressing their true feelings to the person they love.  Instead, they tell their siblings and friends how they feel. These two are

Avery is a small-town girl; she is older and still looking for that perfect guy. She is blunt and confident and doesn't put up with jerks. She likes food and drinks and doesn't care what others think. She has a history with some of the town guys. I love how candid she is in her remarks.

Nolan works at the local brewery; he is tall, hairy, and handsome like a lumberjack. He is also candid and naughty in his speech but comedic too. He is protective and has a friend with benefits thing going with A

When I first heard about this book, I chuckled to myself because it's everything I tell myself I don't like. It's friends to lovers, well technically friends with benefits to lovers, and it's accidental pregnancy. Accidental pregnancies happen. We all know that. So many times in fiction, they happen when a relationship is already established and the next logical step is to have a baby and put a bow on a book and call it done.

This book doesn't do that. This book throws the accidental pregnancy i

A grumpy gruff bearded lumberjack brewmaster. And sunshine high school English teacher that adores Christmas. Sounds like the absolute perfect book to me. First off, Nolan and Avery have some seriously hot chemistry. I immediately knew they would be perfect together. I was a few chapters in and I was shaking my kindle at Nolan and Avery. They really could not get out of each other's way and find their way together.

Are you looking for a slow burn romance? Then “Accidentally in Love” is not for you. Danica Flynn brought the spice and heat in the book all wrapped up nicely in a friends with benefits to lovers story set during Christmas time.

Avery and Nolan have been friends with benefits for the last two years. Avery is an English teacher and Nolan is the co-owner and brewmaster at the brewery he owns with his brother. One night leads to a surprise that neither were planning but both are happy about it. The

I have no other words to sum up my feelings on this book other than, my goodness I needed this in my life right now.

Avery is a gorgeous, self-assured school teacher in her kid theories and I loved that even tho she admits she's not technically plus sized, she still struggles with her body issues. And that is so relatable in a character tbh.

Nolan is just the most hunky big, bearded, beer-brewing Bushman around and such a grinchy grump. He's so yummy 😋

Accidentally in Love kicks off a new series about the MacGregor brothers who own and run a brewery. Nolan is the brewmaster, burnt by a previous marriage but deeply in love with Avery, a schoolteacher in their small town. She, too, has been in love with Nolan for years. Instead of talking to each other, they each suffer their feelings in silence, convinced the other is only interested in a friends-with-benefits scenario.

If you’re looking for an enjoyable friends to lovers read focused around the holidays this book is for you!

Generally I don’t run toward the accidental pregnancy books but this one was very well written and didn’t make me cringe as some do. This couple has a history of being friends with benefits- neither of them willing to admit their feelings. One night everything changes.

The author does a great job keeping the reader engaged as these two navigate the situation all while learning to communicat

I love an accidental pregnancy romance. I loved the added complications of having to figure out what is “baby” love and what is “true” love. I was very excited to dive into this new series by Danica Flynn.

Accidentally In Love is a unique take on the accidental pregnancy trope. It was handled so well. I loved that characters were mature and thoughtful. Both characters are real body rep and I loved that even more. Nolan with his barreled chest and thick beard. I seriously loved him! The progressi

She tries dating various guys but none ever materialize to a second date. One night they get a little sloppy, and next you know she is pregnant, Now she has to tell Nolan.

Nolan told Avery his did not want to get married again after what happened with his ex-wife. But he is not really honest as over the past two years the only woman he has slept with has been Avery

I received an ARC from the author and am voluntarily leaving my review. Avery and Nolan have had a mutually beneficial relationship, but keep their true feelings hidden. It was always friendship and sex without ever crossing the line they agreed on. An unplanned pregnancy is going to shake things up though. Nolan is a stand up guy, who has a big heart. Avery is focused but sometimes on things she shouldn't be. She has insecurities but finds that safe and secure feeling with Nolan. It is what she ...more

This is a good accidental pregnancy story. I love the characters and the plot is interesting and intriguing. It is the first story in the "MacGregor Brothers Brewing Company" series.

This is an engaging, sweet, holiday friends to lovers romance. Avery & Nolan have been friends with benefits for the past 2-years, they thought they hid it from everyone. Avery is so scared he only wants to be with her out of obligation. They both had trouble truly expressing their feelings, it can be a bit frustrating, but worth getting through. All of the characters added to the story, each of them was very relatable. I am not one for a surprise pregnancy book, but I enjoyed their journey. I r ...more

Avery and Nolan have been friends with benefits for two years and are both secretly in love with each other. Even family and friends can see it, and they would see it too, if only they would express their feelings out loud when they are together. But both suffer from insecurities. And then Avery gets pregnant…..

I really enjoyed this Christmas story. I liked the main and secondary characters as well as the storyline. Lovely epilogue.

This is a well written friends to lovers romance between Nolan and Avery. They have a hot chemistry and relationship with "benefits". Until she finds out she's pregnant. He loves her and wants to marry her and be involved be she thinks he's just feeling trapped. The author does a great job building the story and painting her scenes perfectly. She brings tons of emotion to the story and had me glued to the pages reading. It moves fluidly and is a terrific read.

Avery, happy in her job as a teacher and loves Christmas.  Tired of dating losers, but looking for a loving husband and family. Nolan, grumpy brewer, divorced and hates Christmas.  Not looking for a relationship but he and Avery are in one with the much friends with benefits routine, until they forget to use a condom and she ends up pregnant. All the drama of facing what each other actually wants, coupled with a marriage, hidden feelings and unspoken thoughts and wishes.  Will this marri

I wasn't sure how I truly felt about this book. The interactions between Avery and Nolan were fine. Avery was independent and continued to be so once her world had been turned upside down. Nolan was protective and wanted to be involved with Avery on a more forever basis. My problem was the constant non-communication between them. Their friends and family were great with the advice for them to speak up. It kept the story going on a bit longer than I would have liked. Overall, I enjoyed the charac ...more

This was my first Danica Flynn story and I hope it won’t be my last. It was a great friends to lovers/ accidental pregnancy romance. I love both of these tropes and this story really did them justice. Nolan and Avery were such great characters, they felt real. And don’t get me started on the chemistry between them and the steam that generated, I’m still fanning myself over it. I just loved this story.

This is Avery & Nolan's story.
Avery is looking to get married with kids and all that fun stuff. She knows what she wants.
He is a brewery owner, big and boisterous and thinks he's a bad boy.
They've been friends and on the DL ... dating.

The thing is, they have issues. Baggage. Lack of communication.
And that's what makes the story.
Will they work through this problem to make their lives what they want?

Interesting novel.

Accidentally in Love by Danica Flynn
I loved this book it had so many tropes I enjoy.
The characters are so relatable. I absolutely loved that Avery was so relatable you could put your self in her shoes and connect throughout the story with her so much. Oh and Nolan was the perfect perfect man. He is a sexy grumpy, bearded grinch. Yet you can’t help but love him. This book and it’s characters were perfect and I highly recommend. Looking forward to reading more by this author.

A great story of two people hopelessly in love with each other but won't admit it to the other person or to themselves. I fell in love with the story and the characters immediately. It was very difficult to put the book down because I just wanted to know what was going to happen next.
