    ***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 ~

    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.

    So much fun!!

    4.5☆ I absolutely loved the humor in The Upside to Being Single! I highlighted so many quotes that had me cracking up. My inner clutz bonded so hardcore with Mellie. She was very relatable to me and I was very entertained being in her head through out.

    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!
