Have you grabbed Hot Mess yet?

What do you do when the whole world has seen you getting down and dirty in a broom closet?

I, Elle Evans, am on the run.
Not from the fuzz—although that would be more exciting.
No, I’m on the run from the four-year-old private tape that, thanks to my vengeful ex, has probably already ruined my vlogging career.
There’s nothing like the entire world knowing what you look like mid-O.
Creek Keys, Florida, is a million miles away from NYC and the perfect place for me to hide for the rest of summer until I can figure out what I’m going to do. Something that’s easier said than done since my new landlord’s daughter thinks you’re God’s greatest gift. Even better? Their beach house is right next to the one I’m renting, so there’s no getting away from her—or her hot, British dad.
Who most definitely does not think I’m role model material.
He might be right.
The problem is that neither of us can say no to her.
Or each other.

Sandra's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Hot Mess is Emma Hart’s newest romcom. I know when I open one of her books that I am in for a fun, witty, and sexy ride. This one was more of the flirty side for good reason. 

Elle had to get out of NYC before all hell broke loose with a sex tape she didn’t even know about. So, she drove and ended up on a small island in the Florida Keys. It was the perfect place for famous Lifestyle Vlogger who’s main fan base were children. She was hurt by her ex’s actions, she was more upset that her fans would be upset with her. She didn’t want to disappoint the children. They looked up to her even if in real life she made mistakes. She was a hot mess, after all. She didn’t even have a place to stay on the island. That was until a nosy waitress, a cute kid, and a hot British single dad gave her one. To rent. Next door. It was only suppose to be for a few days but things happen… 

Theo didn’t want her here. He knew exactly who she was since his daughter was her number one fan. He also knew about the scandal that just hit. He didn’t know her. He didn’t want his daughter to be hurt if she wasn’t as nice off camera than she was on. And having a sex tape online wasn’t exactly giving her points. Then something happens. He gets to know her and he likes what he sees. The problem? He didn’t date. She didn’t live there. Even if he let Arielle and Elle be friends, it didn’t mean Ari wouldn’t be hurt when she went home. Was it worth the risk? 
Aw!! This was such a fun book. It’s full of the best kind of characters. Clumsy. Flirty. Sweet. Sassy. Witty. Crazy. It was definitely what I needed today. A love story with lots of laughter, an adorable child, a grumpy Brit, and hot mess. 
Quotes: “That’s why you don’t paint and dance.” 
“Not that it stopped you, judging by those dad moves.” 
She blushed again. “You watched me?” 
“It was a little hard not to. It’s like those trainwrecks where you know it’s all going to go to shit, but you can’t stop watching.” 
“Are there aliens on Mars?” 
“No idea. Ask Aunt Elsie. She’ll know.” 
“Dear God, what am I doing here?” 
“Ah, you found God. You’ll need him for those teenage years.” I grinned again.
