New Release Review | Being Brooke by Emma Hart
My name is Brooke Barker…
And I’m a freaking disaster.
No, seriously. I’m a college drop-out working a dead-end job, my best friend Carly’s dog gets more action than I do, and I have more bad dates in my diary than there are movie remakes.
Not to mention I’m completely and utterly in love with Cain Elliott.
The problem? He’s in a relationship. With a girl who’s so plastic she makes Barbie cry herself to sleep with jealousy.
The second problem? He’s my best friend.
My shut-up-and-put-harry-potter, yes-this-is-your-shirt, help-I-have-no-power, crap-I’m-out-of-tampon, kinda best friend.
And that’s all he can be, right?
Being Brooke is a standalone romantic comedy. Hilarious, super-sexy, and possibly highly inappropriate at times, this is the perfect feel-good read!
Emma’s witty dialogue and hilarious inner monologues produce a fabulous romantic comedy to end the year.
The brilliant and massively entertaining first person POV holds a spotlight on some of the best inner thoughts of a female. Brooke’s a vivacious young woman who loves her pizza and wine. She is such a real character that possesses both positive and negative things female readers can relate to. I couldn’t quite decide if I wanted to be her or be her best friend. Brooke Barker is my favorite hot mess.
Cain, Brooke’s best friend of about 9 years, is her perfect counterpart. Their quick-witted banter was on point from beginning to end. He can easily hold his own, and I adored their friendship and loyalty.
Rest assured ‘Hartbreakers’, this new standalone from our dear Emma Hart induces plenty of laugh-out-loud moments and displays all the best story elements we’ve come to love from her writing.
By day, New York Times and USA Today bestselling New Adult author Emma Hart dons a cape and calls herself Super Mum to two beautiful little monsters. By night, she drops the cape, pours a glass of whatever she fancies—usually wine—and writes books.
Emma is working on Top Secret projects she will share with her followers and fans at every available opportunity. Naturally, all Top Secret projects involve a dashingly hot guy who likes to forget to wear a shirt, a sprinkling (or several) of hold-onto-your-panties hot scenes, and a whole lotta love.
She likes to be busy—unless busy involves doing the dishes, but that seems to be when all the ideas come to life.
