Cute, light romcom - chick lit. I read it in one sitting and love the quirky heroine and her interesting trials and tribulations.  Always warm, funny and relatable O'Keeffe is a romcom go-to author for me!

This was such a fun, and swoon worthy read! I really enjoyed it. 
I've read Kate's work before but this one is definitely my favorite. Main character Grace was hilarious, and sweet, completely relate-able. I read this book within 3 days, and it probably would have been sooner if life didn't get in the way. It's definitely a great beach read in my opinion. It will have you laughing your butt off, swooning whenever Sam enters the picture and shaking your head at the ridiculous but entertaining drama that surrounds the media and Grace's family.

I really wanted to like this book, but I’m stuck at 43% and have been for a while. I like the idea of the story, but don’t like the lying and going behind people’s back. Also keeping the fake relationship just because of an upcoming movie and trying to keep the new lovers on the lowdown...Just not feeling it.

I received a copy of this eBook from the publisher and NetGalley for an honest review.

I enjoyed this book, The writing is light & breezy and you definitely feel Grace's struggle with all the secrecy & media coverage. I do wish that there was more getting to know you before leaping into bed parts but overall this book will make you feel good & happy endings all around. #FallingForGrace #NetGalley

I enjoyed author Kate O’Keefe’s other book series.  I had not read any books in the Wellywood Romantic Comedy series until this book, Book 3. The story promised to be funny, sexy chick lit. And it delivered! My problem is that I overlooked “sexy” when I was considering this book.

As usual, I enjoyed Author O’Keefe’s warm and positive humorous writing, her lovely descriptions of New Zealand and Wellington, and the variety of liable characters. Grace is the main character. Her nice, trustworthy roommate is Taylor, a shy young woman who likes country life.  Her hot, snarky roommate is Tiffany. We also get to meet Grace’s new boss, and Grace’s friendly and fairly normal family.

Grace falls for handsome actor Sam Montgomery. And since this is chick lit, they both are instantly attracted to each. They are soul mates, destined to be together. Don’t get me wrong, the fairy tale aspect is what I like about Rom Coms. 

Can Grace overcome the relationship issues with Sam? Can she deal with an unexpected family issue and embarrassing work experiences? The book wraps it all up in an engaging way.

Getting back to the “sexy” part. The romantic parts were tender and delightful BUT there is just so much of it.  Grace and Sam tumbled in to bed after just meeting and then that’s basically all they did together. All day and all night. Which may not bother you at all, but geez.

So, if you’re not an old-fashioned lady, you will love this book. And even old me had fun with it! Thanks to NetGalley for a copy.

I honestly had never heard from this author before and I enjoyed it so I will read more of her books, I was kind of bummed that this is the third in series, but oh well now I have more to read.. This is a cute rom-com, nothing that you will take seriously it is something to make you smile and feel light and we all need that from time to time. Grace will get her HEA in Sam, good for her..

Kate O'Keeffe is a cute light romantic comedy that readers can escape into for a few hours and relax.
The author writing style is simple, smooth and the characters are well developed which readers will be able to connect well with. Readers will laugh at the awkward moments though out the book and finish it a smile on their face.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher Wild Lime Books for  Kate O'Keeffe Falling for Grace

This is a great book with a wonderful story and well developed characters. The story flowed very well and was very enjoyable. This book will keep you reading long into the night and you will not want to put this book down until you finish. This was such a great read and full of surprises. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader’s copy of this book. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

Falling for Grace was a cute little romance about a New Zealander who falls for Hollywood's up and coming actor. Along the way, she has to maneuver through paparazzi and roommates and family and living in NZ when her boyfriend has to go back to LA and the UK. It was fun. It was cute. The romance part moved a little fast for my personal taste - I felt like the chemistry was beginng but then every time they saw each other they were having sex and that didn't really develop them as a couple I'd fall in love with while reading. I feel like you were just supposed to buy into the fact that they were supposed to be together because it was a cute, sweet romance book and that's what happens. That being said, I'm very interested in checking out the author's other works, and would definitely read her again!

Falling for Grace is a very cute and light romantic comedy.  This is a pure escapist read.  It’s not too long so perfect for just getting day to day worries out of your head for a relaxing day or weekend.  The author had a lovely writing style, very smooth and flowing.  The characters were well developed, and you couldn’t help liking Sam and Grace.  There were a few funny moments and awkward situations, a touch of angst, but ultimately a HEA.
I’d recommend Falling for Grace to anyone who enjoys a light rom/com to pass away a few hours.

I firstly would like to thank you for allowing me to read this book! Unfortunately, I got half way through it but found it wasn't for me. That's not to say I wouldn't recommend it to others because everyone has their own opinions!
