Miss Fix-It by Emma Hart

I’m a big fan of flipping around gender roles, I hate when people assume what sex a person should be just based on what their job title is. So I liked the idea behind Miss Fix-It, that our girl is a contractor, and a pretty good one it seems. I also liked how our guy is the single dad, it always seems when its one parent doing the vast majority of the parenting it’s always the mom, so it’s good to see a dad doing it all but also being really good at it. I will say I was expecting this book to be more rom-com than it was. I love Emma Hart’s work, and she has the best humor in her books. And her characters always have the greatest little quirks. Her Holly Woods Files series had great humor even though it was about murders, and some of her others are just a 100% laugh along rom-com. This was more sweet to me, and like all the humor came from the kids, kind of reminiscent of the Burke Brothers series and Mila, except in this book it’s twins so it’s double the trouble. When Kali meets Brantley she is super attracted to him, and I think it’s pretty clear he is attracted to her as well. But Kali isn’t really looking for a built in family, I mean she has big hang ups about it. And I think for Brantley, he more rusty than anything. His wife died, but […]

Lust by Emma Hart

I don’t know why, but I didn’t think I was going to super love this book. I knew I was going to like it, I really love Emma’s writing style and she has a fabulous sense of humor. But for some reason, I thought this book wasn’t going to be over the top awesome, I think it was pair up of prostitute and detective on the anti-prostitute task force, it seemed so opposite it was almost cliche. But as I read I really, really liked it a lot more than I thought I would. The characters in the book are so much deeper than the one line career description lets on, and they had a lot of moments that really pulled out the emotional stops. Perrie, if you read the previous book in the series, is Damien Fox’s sister, estranged sister. She comes from super, mega money, but was basically banished to the outside when she turned up pregnant. So she’s a single mom of a 7 year old, Lola, she lives in a not so nice neighborhood, and she has sex for money. I think what sets her apart from the idea of what a prostitute is going to be like, is how she really is just a normal mom, who wants to put food on the table, and make her kid live in a world that’s as good as she came make it. It’s pointed out many times in the book how her house looks like it doesn’t […]

SIN by Emma Hart

First off, I kind of new this book was going to be awesome, because from just the blurb you knew you had too characters at odds with each other, it’s set in Vegas (land of fun times), and honestly, it’s Emma Hart, so you can’t go wrong. I have to say right up front that the banter between our main characters just made the book so fantastic, it made for a great, fun read. The banter reminded me a lot of the banter you saw in Holly Woods Files, it was sometimes funny, always amusing, charged with sexual tension, occasionally heartwarming, basically my cup of tea. Dahlia is our oh so lovely heroine, and when we meet her she is just back Vegas after losing her father. It’s time for her to go back to running the family business, a bar in Las Vegas that is book themed. Can we just stop right there are make unbelievably clear that if this bar existed near me I would be there all the time. I have to say that Emma did a great job with painting a picture of what the bar looks like, I mean I felt like I could picture the bar in my head, and it is just such a cool idea. I liked Dahlia a lot, she’s smart, well educated, clearly a good boss, seems like she was a good daughter, and she’s got the perfect amount of sassy and sarcasm, I liked how she held her own. […]

Mixed Up by Emma Hart

I love all things Emma Hart, and this book is really just a totally fun and enjoyable journey. I felt like this book is really just all about a good time. Normally when I read a book where it involves the best friends little sister it always seems to have more than a little bit of angst or at the very least a couple of tears to be shed, but this book is way more about the laughs and some serious tension. Raven and Parker have basically grown up together and for whatever reason have just never gotten along. There’s not traumatic event in their past that made them hate each other, they just never really meshed. And apparently it has resulted in years and years of snarky comments and constantly being separated by their families. Of course when the book starts these two haven’t seen each other in years, and Raven is in a tough spot with her bar, she wants a chef so her bar isn’t just about drinks but she can’t seem to find anyone qualified enough to make her plan work. Her basic nightmare scenario of having to get the world renowned chef slash personal nemesis Parker to step in and help her out is quickly becoming her reality. These two are super fun to read. They are both really sarcastic and love to push each other’s buttons, and while it starts out as kind of a openly hostile dynamic, the sexual tension starts to amp […]

Catching Carly by Emma Hart

As always, Emma Hart makes me laugh out loud, and sometimes inappropriately. I really liked Brooke’s book, mostly because I love the whole friends to lovers thing, but also because Brooke and Carly have an awesome dynamic and quirky yet perfect senses of humor. So it was easy to really want to get to know Carly on a more personal level. Carly and Zeke are both introduced in Brooke’s book, and they both are awesome characters in that book because they have a great kind of antagonistic yet laced with tons of chemistry dynamic. The great part about this book is that they already had a drunken hook up, so by the time we meet up with Carly and Zeke again they already know they can set the sheets on fire, so the angst in this book is big time. Carly is super funny, she has that great sense of humor. But honestly, what I loved about Carly (and Emma for including this), is that she is a little left out. Her two best friends have gotten together, and like most people in the beginnings of a new relationship, they neglect their other relationships, and Carly is really feeling that right now. I felt for her, and it made it super relatable too, I mean who hasn’t had a friend disappear down the rabbit hole of a new relationship. She’s also really looking for a connection, and her online dating is hilarious (I mean seriously I’ve never been more happy […]

Casanova by Emma Hart

Without a doubt I adore Emma Hart, I don’t think that will ever change. She has a great writing style that is just so easy to fall into. I was looking forward to this book because I love books where the main characters are antagonistic towards each other. What can I say, I’m a girl who likes her books with a bit of drama. Plus Emma has such a great history of laugh out loud moments within her books. Going into the novel, I knew that Lani hated Brett. I knew there was some sort of history behind their relationship, that ended in her hating him, leaving home, and never looking back. I was really looking forward to finding out what the catalyst was for his extreme displeasure towards Brett. For me honestly, I wasn’t impressed with the reason. It’s been eight years, they were kids, she overheard something, and basically hit the ground running. I don’t think it was grounds to leave everything behind and never talk to him again. I don’t think it was grounds for her to act the way she does towards him when she finally sees him. That being said, I did like Lani, she seems like a pretty cool chick. She’s made a good career for herself, she’s a great writer, she has a lot of integrity as a person, so outside of the reasoning for her feelings for Brett I did actually really like her personality. I didn’t love Brett. Wait, no I […]

Being Brooke by Emma Hart

Ah friends to lovers! One of my favorites to read. So obviously Emma Hart is one of my favorite authors, and after the ending of her Holly Woods Files series, I needed something to fill the gap, and this was the perfect book. I love Emma’s wit in her books, she always has one of two characters who are just super sassy and make me laugh out loud, they always make the book such a fun time, and this was definitely the case here. Brooke is awesome, there is no way around that. She’s at a point in her life that I can totally relate to, she’s dropped out of college, working at a pretty much dead end job that she’s thrilled with, but without a real direction on where to go from there. The good thing is that she has some seriously awesome friends, Carly and Cain. The problem of course is that Brooke is in love with Cain, pretty much everyone else is aware of this fact, and Cain is dating a woman who seriously dislikes both Brooke and Carly. In a lot of ways Cain is kind of being pulled in two different directions, he wants to be a good boyfriend, but at the same time he has been friends with Carly and Brooke for a really long time, and they are basically like family to him. Of course I was rooting for Cain and Brooke to get together from like page one of the book, especially because […]

Twined Bond by Emma Hart

I have loved this series from the very beginning. I love the moments that make me laugh out loud, I love the moments of tenderness between Drake and Noelle, I love the times I’m sitting on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens next, and so much more. When I found out this book was going to be the last book in the series, I have to admit that I wasn’t excited about reading it, because honestly I don’t want this series to be over. But I buckled down and read it, and I have never been so happy to love Emma Hart as an author, I think she did the characters so proud, and at the end I felt sad that it was over but happy with the outcome (which honestly is rare for me when a series comes to an end). So much of this book is a spoiler, and I really think if you are a fan of the series, that you need to experience this book without knowing the spoilers ahead of times. So basically this is going to be a hard review to write because I don’t want to spoil anything. So if you have gotten this far in the series you know that Drake and Noelle are super solid at this point, they are engaged, and I couldn’t be happy for them. This book really brings them even closer together in more ways then one, which I loved. These two of […]

Burning Bond by Emma Hart

I absolutely am in love with this series. There is no way around that. That being said, I was more than a little apprehensive about this book, because it doesn’t follow the heroine we have all come to know and love, Noelle, but instead follows Bek, Noelle’s best friend and co-worker. Truth be told there has been quite a lot of build up coming to this book, is Bek with Jason, or does she like Brody? Well this is the book where all of those questions are answered. Since this is a mystery/suspense I won’t give many details about the plot line, but I’ll still try to explain why I loved the book. So I have always like Bek, she’s just as crazy as Noelle, she’s clearly one of the family, but she also balances our Noelle and vice versa. She’s also funnier then I thought she would be, but not in the same way that Noelle is, which was awesome cause I was kind of worried Bek was going to end up being Noelle 2.0. While Bek does manage to find herself in a scary situation after stumbling upon a rape victim and becoming a target herself of a crew of murders, Bek is a bit more, I think I would call it reserved when it comes to danger. She doesn’t go full force charging into the fray, but that’s not to say she backs away either. I liked that she soldiered on trying to get to the bottom […]
