Barley Cross Series by Emma Hart

Being Brooke (#1)

Published: December 13th, 2016

“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-on-Harry-Potter, yes-this-is-your-shirt, help-I-have-no-power, crap-I’m-out-of-tampons, kinda best friend.

And that’s all he can be, right?


Super cute. This book is a modern day love story and definitely shows what it is like to be a hot mess with a cute boy best friend. This kind of story is my FAVORITE, so it’s was easy to fall in love with this book. Brooke is the girl from the small town of Barley Cross, GA, and has no idea what to do with her life. She is a clumsy, messy, and funny kind of girl. Cain Elliot is her best friend that would help her with anything she needed at the drop of a hat. Of course it’s meant that they are going to fall in love. They have another best friend Carly that helps them figure out their feelings (and maybe finds her own on the way). The only thing about this book that I didn’t like is that it didn’t grab me 100% from the beginning. I loved every part of it once I got into it. So keep reading if you feel the same, and I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Catching Carly (#2)

Published: March 7th, 2017

“Life Goal #1: Forget about my best friend’s brother. (Because Zeke Elliott is a colossal cockwomble.)

From New York Times bestselling author, Emma Hart, comes another hilariously wild romantic comedy about being the third wheel in your friendship and, um, accidentally having sex with your best friend’s brother…”

Honest: One of the best sequels I’ve ever read. It was super adorable, romantic, and hilarious. Emma Hart is definitely moving up on my favorite authors list. I loved this book because it really showed two humans who are emotionally stumped.. Unable to figure out how to maneuver around their feelings. If you are a football fan, and know the Dallas Cowboys (there is a player named Ezekiel Elliot), please read this book (series is better to understand all of the characters). You will CRACK UP. I laughed out loud multiple times due to something with his name. This series is so modern and it really shows that with some of the names that Carly calls Zeke (look at the synopsis and you’ll understand). This is one of those funny times in life where I enjoyed the sequel more than the original.
