Review: Being Brooke by Emma Hart


By Emma Hart


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-harry-potter, yes-this-is-your-shirt, help-I-have-no-power, crap-I’m-out-of-tampon, kinda best friend.

And that’s all he can be, right?


Being Brooke is a standalone romantic comedy. Hilarious, super-sexy, and possibly highly inappropriate at times, this is the perfect feel-good read!

5* Review by Lana 

A hilarious, romantic comedy by the ever so talented Emma Hart.

This book had me laughing at all the horrible things that happen to Brooke all the while she's trying not to fall even more in love with her best friend of 10 yrs, Cain Elliott. Sparks fly as they both try to hid their true feelings from each other. Everybody has a friend like Brooke you root for to find that happily ever after.

4* Review by Heather 

Awkward. Hot Mess. Laugh out loud funny. Actually --- hysterical.

"Prostitutes, Mom. You can say prostitute. Nobody will think any less of a true Southern lady if you say it with constructive criticism." <---- D.E.A.D. You guys, I'm a southern chick with a true southern mother who well, this is us. Especially when I swear like Brooke. I'm a bit crazy with a foul mouth, extreme high heels and an insane love of my best girl friends. A bit like Brooke. Except I'm not in love with my best friend. Hello awkward. See the first line. Being Brooke is written in true Emma fashion. Full of snark with a bit of angst and a love of food. I mean who doesn't love pizza and sweets.

Being Brooke is awkward in the best way possible. Be prepared to spit out your wine and choke on your pizza. ~ White Hot Reads
