The Upside to Being Single by Emma Hart


If anyone asks, I knew better than to flash my boobs for Mardi Gras beads. 

I still don’t know why I did it. 
Maybe it was the dare from my two best friends. 
Maybe it was the guys on the balcony saying they’d throw Fireball shots with the beads. 
Or maybe it was the quiet guy in the corner of that same balcony with piercing gray eyes, wavy dark hair, and a smile so tempting I wanted to climb up there and lick it off his face. 
Maybe it was because I never thought I’d see them again. 
Not that it matters. Not today. 
Because the hotel I manage was finally bought—and the guy who walks in and introduces himself as my new boss is Mr. Tall, Dark, and Silent. 

There are many upsides to being single. 
Your new boss knowing what your boobs look like? 
Not one of them. 

(THE UPSIDE TO BEING SINGLE is a standalone, romantic comedy from the author who brought you MISS FIX-IT and BEING BROOKE.)

"... romantic comedy from the author who brought you MISS FIX-IT and BEING BROOKE."  Pfft.  This book squashed those two books like a little fly.  Did you enjoy them?  I REALLY did.  So to say this one squashed them?  Means this one was an UTTER DELIGHT.

Mellie.  Mellie was a wonder.  A wonderful, amazing, entertaining wonder.  She is the book-world Lorelai Gilmore. The banter and chemistry that Emma Hart created with these characters is everything.  The dynamics of the girls, of Mellie and Creed, the staff... all of it.

The ambiance (I just felt really fucking fancy typing that word, and I will have you know, my pinkies were in the air when I did) of the book, the tone, the theme... it all had me bouncing in my seat and clapping with glee.  As much as I do anyway.   This one brought me so much joy to my little cold black heart.

Are you a Gilmore Girls fan?  You'll love this one.  I fucking LOVED it.
