My name is Carly Porter... And I’m really good at bad decisions.

How do I know this, exactly? Well, not including the time I accidentally bleached my eyebrows or sprained my ankle changing a lightbulb...

I had sex with my best friend’s brother.

Zeke Elliott has been a thorn in my side for eleven years. A very sexy, very tempting, very freaking annoying one. With big…hands.

And now my clitoris has a crush on the guy.

Seriously. I can’t look at him without my vagina performing accidental kegels. Which would be fine, but he’s Cain’s brother. I hate him. He’s off limits, right?

Maria’s Review

➦If you’re a fan of romantic comedies with a bit of over the top humor then you will probably enjoy this quick fun and sexy read!

➦Carly’s got most of her life figured out. Except, maybe her job… or love life. She works at the bank at a teller and it was supposed to be one of those temporary jobs… but somehow became a permanent one. But bills, and all that jazz…

➦And as far as her love life goes, Carly consistently tries online dating and keeps consistently failing at that too. But ya know, it ain’t her fault.

Cuz. Expectation from online dating profile:


You know what, I wish I couldn’t make this statement… but…

➦Well, at least one thing is permanent and consistent in Carly’s life – her dog. Oh and there’s also, of course, a hate for her best friend’s brother. They are constantly bickering about everything and seem to not be very compatible…

➦Until one day, after one too many alcoholic beverages… they put that theory to a test… and what do you know? Compatible after all! But, of course, next morning neither of them wants to admit to themselves they actually enjoyed their time together. They both are stubborn!

➦Anywhoooo, Carly is my kind of gal and I enjoyed her story. One funny quote from the book for you right here: (I’M LOOKING AT YOU, VAL!)

Within two minutes, we have the wine bottle between us and fresh glasses poured after testing it’s right.
I don’t get that smell-and-sip-thing.
Just chug it from the bottle.
You’ll soon know if it’s good or bad by whether or not you throw it up.

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.
