I loved him more than life.
He broke me and he didn’t even know it.
I ran from him.
He didn’t chase me.
He never needed to, because he knew I’d come back.
He was right.
Death brought me home to him.
Drop dead gorgeous and filthy-mouthed with a smile that turns saints to sinners.
A casanova to his core.
My ex-best friend.
And the bad boy whose reputation precedes him—the same reputation I’m tasked with turning to gold… Or so they think.
Actual 3.5 stars.
Emma Hart is one of my favorite authors and she knows how to write a seriously funny rom-com. I adore her Burke Brothers and Stripped series and both those series had a brilliant blend of humor and sexy romance with great characters that kept me hooked from page one.
Casanova is a great read jam-packed full of Emma’s signature sassy wit. The banter between Lani and Brett is hysterical and I was laughing my head off while reading this book.
Lani had left for California over a misunderstanding the night her and Brett graduated. One of the things I loved about this second chance romance was how both mains could now acknowledge their immaturity and appreciate if they had just spoken to one another they wouldn’t have spent eight years apart.
The overall premise of this story was flimsy and lacking depth and that was my biggest issue with it. The plot was also very predictable and it lacked a nail-biting climactic moment. Brett was portrayed as a Casanova who didn’t give a crap about anyone, but he never really presented as such. He bed-hopped, that was blatant, but every other demonstration of his character led me to believe he wasn’t the bad boy he was portrayed to be. It didn’t take much for me to fall for him!
Lani was a great female lead – independent, and career driven, feisty, and opinionated, but she had a good heart.
Without a shadow of a doubt the snarky banter is the star of this show. Prepare to laugh your socks off!
If you enjoy well written light-hearted romantic comedy or you are a fan of Emma Hart then you should definitely pick this one up.
I would like to thank the author and Inkslinger PR for providing an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.

She likes to be busy – unless busy involves doing the dishes, but that seems to be when all the ideas come to life.
