Hot Mess (Love is Messy Duet: Book 1) by Emily

A Bookworm Review by Ana

Hot Mess

Contemporary Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

Second chances. To love again. To live a new life withou regrets…

Have a look at the blurb:

My life is a hot mess.

Single, working, and raising two daughters, it’s a miracle I get us up, dressed, and fed every morning. Forget about dating—nobody’s got time for that. Even if love hadn’t left me jaded, I’m not settling for anything less than perfect this time around.

Lucky for me, the perfect man just happens to work in my office. But there’s just one small problem: he’s my boss, and is totally off limits. But hey, if it’s meant to be, it’ll find a way, right?

Then a night out with friends turns into a night in with the walking-talking bad boy cliche of a bartender. It’s just one night. No harm, no foul, right? Except when the hot bartender turns out to be my boss’s trouble-making brother. And he wants more than just one night with me. The more I resist the spark between us, the more I find myself wanting him too. Which puts me in the middle of what could be the biggest sibling rivalry of the century.

Life is messy.

And love?

Well, love is even messier.



With a name like this and a hot as hell cover how could I resist??  I couldn’t so I was super curious about it and just dig in as soon as I could.
I’m a newbie with Emily Goodwin’s books and I’m hooked. I sure am. I love an author that doesn’t have problems to write what she wants,  how she wants without worries and throwing caution to the win.
Emily Goodwin has an intense and pretty detailed writing. The way she expressed herself in this book is raw and inviting.
Hot Mess is an intense book with two points of views from Alexis and Luke.
Alexis is a working mom trying to raise her kids. Life hadn’t been fair to her but for the sake of her daughters she can quit, she needs to keep fighting. Things weren’t always like this,  she had a steady life, living it the way she always imagined but when she got divorced everything changed. She has her dream job, she is an Editor at a publishing company and loves her job.
Luke is a rebel. He’s stubborn as hell and don’t take crap from nobody. Him and Cole, Alexis boss,  are brothers but unfortunately they don’t get along. He hides something but I can’t tell you what is bcause I don’t spoil…
Things will happen that will drive you insane.  Trust me. insane with rage and insane with desire… because the hot scenes are something else…

And seriously Emily… You needed to do that??
The story unfolds in a way so intense, so especial that will make you fall in love with it.
I’m so happy to had the chance to read this amazing book and I can’t wait to have the chance to know more about this amazing author books.
