Emma by Stacey Broadbent
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Emma was such a great story, it's a quirky and funny book with plenty of humor and many romantic endeavors, but it also deals with the dark reality of living with tragedy and trauma that starts to send Emma down a path of self destruction. She almost loses her career because of her independence on alcohol and the oblivion that she craves from it. Emma is living with a self inflicted guilt of what happened to her in the past and it makes her make very bad decisions, she puts herself into situations that are a danger to her own safety, and with not being capable of making a sense of right and wrong, she makes a total fool of herself that comes with consequences.
There are so many great characters in this story that help to keep Emma out of mischief, Cybil is like a mother hen that looks out for her while coming across as the wicked witch of the west but you can't help but love her. Blake you can't help but want to hold him and unburden him from the secret he is hiding from the world and then there's Brock, he's the hot, filthy rich, and deliciously handsome neighbour next door that becomes Emma's knight in shining armour. Brock is such a great hero, as we get to know him, you just can't help but fall a little in love with him as we see him hold her and take care of her in her worst of moments and he really does come to her aid and save her in every way.
This was such a great story, the writing was good and it was an absolute pleasure to read. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
