Feature: Funny Guy by Emma Barry

Posted on

From the author of Chick Magnet comes a heartfelt friends-to-lovers story about what can happen when a funny guy and his childhood best friend are stuck together in a small New York City apartment.

Sam can’t escape the smash hit “Lost Boy” because, well, he is the lost boy. His pop-singer ex immortalized him in a song about his childish ways, and now his comedy career is on the line.

At least he still has Bree, his best friend and confidante. Bree has always been there for Sam, but she’s never revealed her biggest secret: she’s in love with him. To help herself move on, Bree applies for her dream job across the country–and doesn’t say a thing to Sam.

But as Sam tries to resuscitate his career, he turns to Bree for support–and maybe more. In the confines of her tiny apartment, they share a different dynamic. A charged dynamic. But she’s his friend. He can’t be falling for her.

Except he is.

Are his feelings for Bree just funny business? Or is their smoldering attraction the real deal?

“Emma Barry has been one of my favorite authors in the world for many years now. Her books are always crafted with exquisite care and thoughtfulness, abounding with graceful prose, extremely liable characters, rueful humor, and a thorough grounding in how good people think, work, and love. Plus, her writing is simply fun, not to mention sexy.”
— Olivia Dade, national bestselling author of Spoiler Alert and All the Feels
