  • ***4 ‘It’s All About the Donuts’ Stars***

    ***4 ‘It’s All About the Donuts’ Stars*** The title peaked my interest, but it was the first line of the blurb that truly hooked me. I mean how can you not be even mildly curious about a romance that starts off with the main female character flashing her boobs and then finding out that one of the spectators just so happens to be her new boss? I obviously needed to know how everything played out and what a ride it was. This book was a fun and quick read that was sweet and smexy that had me laughing out loud even as my eyes rolled at the situations the characters found themselves in. Jake and Mellie definitely kept me on my toes throughout the book. Mellie is that mix of sweet and snarky and when you throw in her quirks, which there are a few, it was hard not to find her endearing even when I found myself rolling my eyes at some of her...reactions. Jake is blunt, calm and has a sneaky sort of charm that has tends to pull the truth out of you, when you are trying so hard to avoid it. Their journey to their HEA starts out with a bang and doesn’t let up one bit as the story progresses. The push/pull between them was intense, and at times a little OTT, but I have to admit that it kept things real interesting as I waited for them to just give into the chemistry that blazed between them whenever they were in the same vicinity. I loved the slow burn/build of their relationship and I really like where they are in their relationship at the end of the book. The Upside of Being Single was a fun read. The writing was engaging, the pacing good and I enjoyed the first person POV. One of the things I really enjoyed were the fun little what I’m going to call “tid bits” at the beginning of each chapter, they had me chuckling and extremely interested to find out what was going to happen. As for the supporting cast of characters, I loved Peyton and Chloe, Mellie’s two BFF’s, they were all kinds of crazy goodness and I cannot wait to get my hands on their books to see how their own journey’s to their HEA’s will play out, especially since it looks like they are both going to be quite bumpy. ~ Copy provided by InkSlingerPR & voluntarily reviewed ~

  • Funny and sexy Rom-Com!

    What is the worst that can happen when your friends dare you to flash your boobs during Mardi Gras? Finding out that the hot sexy guy you flashed is your new boss. But that isn't the worst that happens to Mellie. Her new boss, Jake, is not only hot and sexy but also sweet and funny. They both know they should keep their relationship strictly professional, but the more time they spend together, the connection between Mellie and Jake deepens. Will they resist the attraction? I really enjoyed The Upside to Being Single! Mellie and Jake's story is very entertaining, sexy, funny and sweet. Their banter is hilarious and the chemistry is off the charts and palpable. I laughed a lot with them and I loved how they met and how their relationship developed. Mellie is a sweet and funny woman, but also very sassy and feisty. She's a klutz but an adorable one. She loves her friends, her job, and the people she works with. Although she feels a connection with Jake, Mellie is afraid of taking a chance with him because of how it would affect their professional relationship. Jake has moved to a new town and has a new project. He bought the hotel and wants to be involved in the renovations and the day-to-day affairs. He never expected the girl that flashed him to be his hotel manager. He likes Mellie a lot and has a lot of difficulty resisting their connection. He's a very sweet guy and knows what he wants and will fight for it. Emma Hart gives us an amazing and captivating Rom-Com that has the perfect combination of laughter and sexiness. The Upside of Being Single is a fast paced book that will hook you from the first chapter and keep wanting more. I can't wait to read Peyton's and Chloe's stories!

  • The upside to being single

    I’ve read a few Emma Hart books and loved them, but for me this story was a little bit ordinary and didn’t come together like other books I’ve read by this author and I probably wont continue with this series. Mellie is a hotel manager in New Orleans and one night out with her friends flashes some men during Mardi Gras. Low and behold one of the men she flashes turns out to be her new boss! Then there are awkward moments between them as well as underlying passion for each other. This books is meant to be a romantic comedy and that’s pretty much what this book is. You don’t really have to think about this book and it does have a happily ever after, but for me I just felt like this book was too easy a read, that the relationship between the two main characters was just a little too perfect, especially when they are meant to be running and updating a hotel in the centre of New Orleans. Mellie as a main character has a quirky personality, is often clumsy and has wicked sarcasm, but she comes across as a little immature. In comparison to Jake who although is funny and described as quite cute, for me as a reader was just a little bit blah! Overall, not the best book I’ve read and again, not a series that I’ll be continuing with.

  • 4.5 Bossy stars for this hilarious read.

    THE UPSIDE TO BEING SINGLE by Emma Hart (30/1 42 reviews 31/1 26, 1/2 34, 2.2 40 total 142 review) I’ve read a few books by Emma Hart now and I can safely say, she writes some hilariously stuff. The genuine, hold your belly until the tears come kind of laughs is what her books are made of, and The Upside To Being Single was no different. Mellie is the manager of a small boutique hotel in New Orleans, and one night she goes out with her friends and gets drunk. It’s Mardi Gras after all, who wouldn’t be drunk then. On a dare from her two besties, Mellie flashes a hot guy. Mr Tall, Dark and Silent as she nicknamed him gets to sees all of her boobs, because guess what? Mellie is not wearing a bra. But, it’ll be fine, she’ll never see him again her friends assure her. Right? Wrong! The man who ogled her boobs? He’s not just any man. He’s… ‘Mr TDS, cause Tall, Dark and Silent is too much of a mouthful, even in my head.’ And… he’s her new boss, Jake Creed. The attraction Jake and Mellie share is immediate and hard to resist, but they must, or so they keep telling themselves as they accidentally touch, or kiss. But, when it’s this good, it too hard to fight for long, or at all really. The way to Mellie’s heart is donuts, she’s crazy about them and Jake wantonly feeds that addiction and uses it to get his way. Over and over. I loved their snarky back and forth banter, Mellie’s klutzy clumsiness and Jake tough guy image. These two were a whirlwind of laugh out loud moments but they had a slow burn going on in the romance department throughout the story. If you’re looking for a light-hearted, angst-free story then look no further because you have it all here. Kudos to Emma for another brilliant book.

  • Review: The Upside To Being Single

    The Upside to Being Single by Emma Hart is the first of three books surrounding a trio of best friends, Mellie, Peyton and Chloe. A hilarious romance with a slow burn that will drive you wild. Told mostly from Mellie's POV we do get a couple of chapters from Jake's perspective as well. Mellie is a mess - to quote her directly "an organized hot-mess" and when the hotel where she has been general manager for the past few years comes under new ownership she is waiting for the arrival of the new boss with trepidation. When her friends drag her out, ply her with cocktails and then dare her to flash the Mardi Gras crowd, shocked that she has never done it before, she locks eyes with a gorgeous man on a balcony and goes for it - sans bra. When said hottie turns out to be the new owner she was waiting to meet - well, it gets really awkward at the hotel. Jake knows what he wants and regardless of the fact that she is his employee, he wants Mellie. He is calm and in control but not an overbearing male character. He is compassionate and consistent and just persists in gently breaking past her barriers. Well-written with a slow build throughout the entire story to the romantic climax (*wink*) and leading us into the setting for the next story. Loved it! Enjoy!
