Review: Four Day Fling by Emma Hart

Posted on

A standalone romantic comedy of epically awkward proportions, from New York Times bestselling author, Emma Hart.

Imagine this.
You’re ready to leave after a one-night stand, and you’re figuring out how to—shock horror—leave your number and ask him to be your fake boyfriend for your sister’s wedding this weekend.
When he wakes up.
Well, that happened to me. And over coffee and omelets, I found myself a date.

Which was how I ended up arriving at the wedding with a guy I knew nothing about.
I didn’t know his last name, or how we met, or how long we’d been dating. I didn’t know where he grew up, what he’d majored in in college, or how many siblings he had.
I sure as hell didn’t know he was Adam Winters, hotshot hockey player—and not only my father’s favorite player, but my little nephew’s freakin’ idol.
Which means I’m in trouble. Big, big trouble.
My mother is suspicious, my sister is bridezilla on crack, and my grandpa will tell anyone who’ll listen about his time in Amsterdam’s Red Light District.
Four days.
I have to keep this up for four days, and then Adam and I can return to our regular lives, where we don’t have sex whenever we’re alone and my family aren’t interrogating him over his intentions with me.

At least, that’s the plan.
And we all know what happens to those.

My Review

“He tasted of whiskey and coke, and he smelled like my next big mistake.”

“Kissing him was like flying. Everything else melted away when Adam held my body against his, and our lips came together.”

“You have a smarter mouth than anyone I’ve ever met, and I’m fucked if I know why that’s so attractive to me, but there you go.”

“She consumed me like the fire she was.”

Four Day Fling is the kind of summer romance that I can’t possibly resist. The story-line is fun and entertaining. The characters are a riot and captivate me instantly. And the romance just puts a smile on your face. Emma Hart is quickly becoming my go-to author when I’m in the mood for a romantic comedy. When I need a smart, snarky and independent heroine and a hero that melts your heart, I know exactly who I can count on…

One of things I loved most about this story was the characters. Poppy was quirky, awkward, and totally independent. She is a total riot and you just can’t help but fall for this girl. I mean, imagine having a one night stand with an incredible guy, and then inviting said guy to a wedding. I mean, I wouldn’t have the courage to do something like that! And I just loved her snarky attitude and I want to know where I can find some of the shirts that she has. They just cracked me up! This girl may have thought she was a complete disaster, but she couldn’t be more wrong. She was the glue that holds her family together. And then Adam… He is a total breath of fresh air. He’s famous, but is drawn to Poppy because for the first time, someone is interested in Adam the guy, not Adam the professional hockey player. The connection he feels for Poppy is intense, so when she asks him to be her fake date for her sister’s wedding, he can’t resist. I have to say, I just adored Adam. He was sexy and intense, yet he made me swoon and could handle all the crazy Poppy threw his way.

I just loved Poppy and Adam together. Their connection was instant and intense. I loved how effortless things were between the two of them. The lines of pretend and real blurred so easily. I couldn’t help but root for these two. They entertained me so much. Adam was the balance that Poppy needed. He figured out how to handle her stubbornness and wasn’t afraid to go after what he wanted.

And of course, another thing to love about this story is the family. You’ve got the sister who’s close to becoming bridezilla. A mother who you’ll never be able to please. A father that just goes with the flow, but is always in your corner. And a grandfather & aunt who are sure to leave you in stitches. I just loved the family dynamic of this story and couldn’t wait to see what each family member would do next.

Four Day Fling was an entertaining read from beginning to end. The story is well written and captivating. I easily devoured this book in just a few short hours. The characters were fun, entertaining and easy to connect with. There was a good balance of humor, sexy good times and drama. Four Day Fling is the perfect summer read that will have you laughing and swooning. Emma Hart has once again delivered a fun and unforgettable romantic comedy.
