From New York Times bestselling author, Emma Hart, comes a brand new standalone novel. BEING BROOKE is a laugh-out-loud, witty, 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? Right.
Great romatic comedy
I love a good “friends to lovers story”, which is why I HAD to read Being Brooke.
The first kiss between Cain and Brooke was so emotional, I loved what Emma Hart did with that scene, it felt so real and romantic! Cain had everything I like in a beta hero, he was loyal, fun, and very supportive of Brooke.The sexual tension was well written, but I wanted more sexy times!
Brooke was over the top at times, I thought to myself “how could someone stand her?”. She had a temper and was definitely not an easy woman to be around, and while that made her flawed, this could also made her seem unrealistic or like a caricature.
I couldn’t put it down. Being Brooke was a fun and highly entertaining new adult romance.
