Review: Catching Carly (Barley Cross #2) by Emma Hart

Posted on


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…

My Review

“I’m never wrong. I’m a woman. It’s a universally accepted truth that, as a woman, when I’m right, I’m right, and when I’m wrong, I’m right then, too.”

“Zeke kisses me so hard it’s almost bruising. His grip is so tight there’ll be finger marks when he lets me go, but I don’t want him to let me go. Because this kiss isn’t a game. It’s raw and angry. Impulsive. Dangerous. Scary. Its the realist touch we’ve ever shared. It feels like it means something. Like it actually reflects the way he feels rather than the way he wants to feel. There’s no chase, or tease or messing with me. It’s straight to the point, clear-cut in its desperation. In his neediness.”

Now, this. This is exactly what I want in a romantic comedy: Smart. Funny. Well Written. Entertaining. Laugh Out Loud Hilarious. Those are just a few words to describe the latest release from Emma Hart. Catching Carly is one of those books that will have you laughing so hard it hurts one moment, and clenching your chest in the very next breath.

When we first meet up with Carly, she realizes she’s made a big mistake. Huge. She’s slept with her best friend’s brother. And despite how scary that realization is, she can’t fight the feelings that she has for him and boy does she ever try. Catching Carly takes you on one fun and entertaining journey. What starts off as Carly desperately trying to find a date to her grandmother’s birthday party, will quickly turn into something more. Something more than Carly every dreamed of…

Catching Carly is the ultimate friends to lovers/hate to lovers romance. The chemistry and tension between Carly and Zeke was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. They took palpable tension to a whole other level. I loved all the interactions and banter between the two of them. It was the ultimate foreplay. It was just hot, hot, hot. I couldn’t get enough of the two of them together and could not wait to see what these characters had in store for me next.

Catching Carly took me by surprise in the best way possible. Not only was it a fabulous read, but it was also filled with a lot of heart. This story is smart. It is honest. It is incredibly funny and well written. This story took my breath away and had me laughing my ass off. It gave me so many feels and had me swooning my ass off in the best possible way. Zeke was a fantastic book boyfriend and he totally exceeded my expectations. Catching Carly is the perfect story to spend the day getting lost in and I definitely recommend checking it out.
