Review – Being Brooke by Emma Hart

I can’t breathe. I’m really struggling to take in a breath, because I’m smiling so damn big right now that it’s actually hurting my face. In fact if I’m honest I never stopped smiling through this book, from the first page to the very last Being Brooke has made me laugh, swoon, feel and love. 

There was something incredibly refreshing about this book. It wasn’t all brooding asshole alpha and hot sex but dya know what, it didn’t need it. The whole story is captivating. It’s one of those books that just implants itself in your heart and refuses to let go. It was funny and filled with laugh out loud humour and sarcasm. Everything about this book screams rom com, done so perfectly, it’s one of my faves of the whole year.

Brooke aka the Hot Mess was an outstanding character. I loooooved her so freaking much. She is one of the realist characters I have ever read, her personality was infectious. I want to be friends with this woman, she’s one of those characters that you just connect with. And Emma, as usual wrote her superbly, not that I ever doubted her, Emma writes the best heroines! 

And Cain, OMG Cain! Why, how, does Emma manage to write men that just RUIN every part of you? Because he will, every single damn part…RUINED. IN THE BEST WAY! There has not been one single Hart hero that I haven’t fallen head over heels with. And Cain! Cain! I actually have no words guys. Just YES! GAH! And ALL THE THINGS! Because he is, all the things! 

He is the best friend, the guy you have loved forever, the guy that you can’t ever let know how you truly feel. Yup. I’ve been there, done that, and so FELT EVERY DAMN WORD OF THIS BOOK! And that is what makes this book so damn special, because it’s TOO FREAKING REAL and you can connect to it all. Feel it all, bask in all its otherworldly goodness. 
I adore Emma, her books are addictive, her writing is flawless, everything about Emma’s writing is just perfection. Without a doubt she is one of my ultimate favourite authors. When her stories are THIS GOOD and just keep getting better how can she not be a? 

Being Brooke was an hilarious, refreshing read that stole my heart and exploded with real, breathtaking beauty.

From New York Times bestselling author, Emma Hart, comes a brand new standalone novel. BEING BROOKE is a laugh-out-loud, witty, sexy, and sometimes highly inappropriate romantic comedy about being in love with your best friend. And how much that freaking sucks.

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-on-Harry-Potter, yes-this-is-your-shirt, help-I-have-no-power, crap-I’m-out-of-tampons, kinda best friend. 

And that’s all he can be, right?
