Author: Emma Hart
Release Date: January 25th, 2017
I loved him more than life.
He broke me and he didn't even know it.
I ran from him.
He didn't chase me.
He never needed to, because he knew I'd come back.
He was right.
Death brought me home to him.
Drop dead gorgeous and filthy-mouthed with a smile that turns saints to sinners.
A casanova to his core.
My ex-best friend.
And the bad boy whose reputation precedes him - the same reputation I'm tasked with turning to gold... Or so they think.
About the Author:
By day, New York Times and USA Today bestselling New Adult author Emma Hart dons a cape and calls herself Super Mum to two beautiful little monsters. By night, she drops the cape, pours a glass of whatever she fancies - usually wine - and writes books.
Emma is working on Top Secret projects she will share with her followers and fans at every available opportunity. Naturally, all Top Secret projects involve a dashingly hot guy who likes to forget to wear a shirt, a sprinkling (or several) of hold-onto-your-panties hot scenes, and a whole lotta love.
She likes to be busy - unless busy involves doing the dishes, but that seems to be when all the ideas come to life.
OK. So it is a little bit difficult to write this review. I am kind of torn. On one side, I really liked the second part of the book. It was fast paced, sometimes fun and witty, and sometimes tender and heartbreaking. But the first half of the book felt kind of monotonous and slow. So yes, I am kind of pulled in two directions and I am not sure which one to take as I love Emma Hart and her books.
Initially, I felt like Lani was quite childish and unreasonable in her behaviour. She was kind of quiet and shy, angry and terrified of seeing Brett again. But then when she got the chance to actually talk with him, she acted like the witch from the west. All vindictive and so on. And OK, I agree, he hurt her in high school, but 8 years are more than enough time to get over it. I did feel better about her during the second part of the book but unfortunately she wasn't one of my favorite characters.
Brett was also not exactly my type of BBF during the first half of the book. I love the whole bad boy with a heart of gold vibe but on a few occasions, he was simply nasty. He did redeem himself though during the second part of the book. I loved getting to know his softer and generous side. And it didn't hurt seeing his romantic and tender side too :)
So, as a whole that wasn't a bad book. I will still recommend it if you are looking for a somewhat light read for a relaxing evening at home :)
