Genres: Adult Romantic Comedy

What do you do when the whole world has seen you getting down and dirty in a broom closet?
I, Elle Evans, am on the run.
Not from the fuzz—although that would be more exciting.
No, I’m on the run from the four-year-old private tape that, thanks to my vengeful ex, has probably already ruined my vlogging career.
There’s nothing like the entire world knowing what you look like mid-O.
Creek Keys, Florida, is a million miles away from NYC and the perfect place for me to hide for the rest of summer until I can figure out what I’m going to do.
Something that’s easier said than done since my new landlord’s daughter thinks you’re God’s greatest gift. Even better? Their beach house is right next to the one I’m renting, so there’s no getting away from her—or her hot, British dad.
Who most definitely does not think I’m role model material.
He might be right.
The problem is that neither of us can say no to her.
Or each other.
Have you grabbed Hot Mess yet?
Once again Emma Hart’s writing had me giggling at times, and laughing out loud, loudly, at other times. The characters in this were her usual fun people that you want to hang out with, be friends with. And of course, a sexy British guy for a love interest? Who can say no to that? It was definitely fun having the female main character, Elle, as a famous YouTube/Vlogger personality. So famous that even across the country from her home of New York, she was easily recognized by those who either watched the videos for their own enjoyment, or watched them to be involved in their children’s interests. It was also great to read about how she made sure to explain to some of her younger fans about how what they saw wasn’t the whole picture of the person behind the shows.
There was of course the crazy elderly relative as this author really knows how to add to a story in a way that I look forward to. This time a great aunt. I also think the single dad romantic lead is very well done by Hart as well. One thing I always wonder as I read her books is if any of the side characters that are already coupled up possibly were from books before I discovered the author, or if they aren’t coupled up, could we see it in the future?
Two moments that had me laughing so loud that I disturbed my dogs who were snuggling with me on the couch while I read were a fun pop culture reference about insulting Voldemort when talking about her ex, and then a hilarious debate about courgettes vs. zucchinis. Which I immediately had to text my sister who is living in Scotland about that when I read it.
You can’t go wrong with a book by Emma Hart if you’re looking for funny, romantic, steamy, and sweet.
