Carol [Goodreads Addict]
Four Day Fling is my very first book by Emma Hart. I chose this book because I thought it looked like it was going to be a lot of fun with a sexy romance at the same time and yes, this did definitely ring true. But, I might have learned with this one that there is such a thing as too much sarcasm or snark. At times it distracted me from the story. As I got to know the main characters, I realized that Poppy uses the sarcasm as a sort of shield but still, for me it was a bit too much.

I’m in love with this book cover.
In LOVE!!!

Such a beautiful hair color, my dream color, absolute #WetDreamAlexIsChasing.

Ah…. the power of Photoshop…

But the real life is cruel; you buy a new brand with a perfect print on the box, do a happy dance, then you apply it, patiently wait, rinse and look into the mirror with full expectation of this Goddess…

And you see…

Story of my life...

But, well, I was actually talking about the book *lol*

I was super excited to read Four Day Fling by Emma Hart, plus I absolutely loved the cover. I must admit, I do have a thing for red heads, so this story definitely drew me in from the get go. I was searching for the ultimate romcom to read. All I craved was something sweet, fun, flirty and sexy to draw me in and get me hooked. Four Day Fling was simply one of those books that is an absolute joy to read and leaves you with a smile on your face. It certainly did deliver on everything I was searchi

No Rating/A 'Just-Not-Feeling-It' DNF

Poppy and Adam had a ONS after meeting in a bar. She needs date for her sister’s big wedding. He agrees. She doesn’t know he’s a pro athlete.

Full disclosure, there’s an author’s note at the beginning reaffirming it’s an unedited, unproofed ARC. Nothing uncommon there. But then it proceeds to request that reviewers skip over any mistakes (specified as “typos, incorrect words, misuse of words, and facts”). I generally don’t dwell on minor, infrequent, and inco

Four-day fling has popped up all over my radar lately and I'd already got high expectations before I opened the first page. I was a little nervous to read it but luckily it didn't disappoint. This is my first Emma Hart story but won't be my last.

Poppy is everything her family wishes she wasn't. She stands on her own two feet. She comes from money but has chosen her own path through life. She has an average job, she likes to party and she isn't afraid to make a fool of herself. The book starts w

Great story!
In Four Day Fling, the author takes a familiar story line but gives us a sweet and delightful twist. A one night stand turns into a wacky, crazy weekend where the heart grows fonder against their better judgment.

We’re introduced to Poppy, who is by all accounts crazy. High maintenance and just rather wacky but she is better at managing life than her sister and her mother, if that means anything. But she tends to endear herself to us and I love how Adam can completely

a solid romcom read!

I'm sarcastic AsF just like the heroine and that's why I floved her.
RTCL. If I feel like writing one anyway.
This was a fun read. It was safe.
The heroine is awesome, I didn't get annoyed with her OTT sassiness, cause girl I get it, I need coffee to survive too. (She was an uber bitch in the morning but then so am I !!)

The hero was super cute and loyal. At first, both agreed to split after their fling was done but then the hero wanted to admit his feelings for her and I was fine with the fact that initially, she did not want to admit her feelings for him as she did not want to get hurt. I completely und

I loved this book! I have a thing for funny books and this one was full of funny conversations, funny actions and more than that, a funny-hot guy!
Red and Adam were such a beautiful “fake” couple! I loved them. They were so perfect for each other. And their beginning... man :)) that was funny too. I mean... I don’t want to spoil it for other readers, but damn, I wish something like their story would happen to me too. Sometimes my family can be crazy too, so I totally understand why Poppy/Red nee

This. Book. Was. Everything.

Cute, funny, adorable, gut wrenching but absolutely incredible.

As soon as I started I never wanted to put it down, I was hooked from the get go.

ARC received in exchange for an honest review

When I read the info on this book I knew it was a book I’d want to read, a book that piqued my curiosity and a book I knew I’d love.

Poppy and Adam are amazing. When a one night stand turns into a four day fling you never expect anything more than a fling but this book is so
Quirky quick romance
Wedding Date's book hangover

I was totally into the fake boyfriend for wedding trope but not so much for this. This book was quirky and awkwardly humourous at times. I had give credit to the hilarious moments but not so much on the romance. The family drama was way too much and somewhat exaggerating.

Sadly, I was skimming through some sections of the book.

One of the most interesting heroine I read lately, she (like me) hates the world before breakfast and loves her space while sleeping. And the scene in the shower was hilarious! Aside from that the story didn't hold my attention enough to continue reading. The fourth time I try Emma Hart, still no luck!

3.5 stars rounded up to 4 stars!

I liked the heroine but I loved the hero.

The cover was beautiful also. The heroine's mother continuous nagging got me so irritated that I had literally skipped some of the pages when the mother appears. But can't complain can I? Because of her, this ridiculous fling had started.

I have to say again I just loved the hero. ❤️
And there was the epilogue, it was full of sweetness!

Move on from Noelle Bond!

It seems the author is stuck in regurgitating characters that are carbon copies of Noelle. I didn't mind the snark with Ms. Bond, but now it is tired and annoying.
Poppy is a brat, or quite frankly, another B word. She's not funny, not cute, she's absolutely mean and vicious.
What happened to the shy girl at the beginning? She practically begged Adam to help her, and do you think she was nice to him? Not at all. She didn't waste a second turning on him and being a B with
Such a fun read...
Loved it...

Poppy Dunn is a free spirited firecracker, stubborn, feisty and in total opposition from her family, especially her overcontrolling mother. She can't really get along with her a little bit over bearing family member, it's chaotic, it's hilarious and when her sister's four day wedding celebrations appraoches, she proposes an outrageously insane idea to her one-night stand, Adam Winters to be her "plus one" at this merry event, no strings attached, all payed, four day

(one which was definitelyneeded after experiencing a few highly angsty ones)
I found myself laughing out loud, sometimes with simultaneously cringing, at the snarky and antics of the various unique and colorful characters and falling in love with Poppy and Adam as they found that the ‘fake’ in their relationship wasn’t as fake as they’d thought it would be.

Poppy is a force to be reckoned with. With little, to no edit button, she

I enjoyed this one and I laughed a lot!

Super fun read.

Four Day Fling was definitely one of those books that I bought without double checking to see what it was actually about. In the end, I enjoyed the heck out of this book and that is all thanks to the main characters.

Adam and Poppy were everything (at least to me). Although if I'm being completely honest.. I've had a shit ton of wine and I've been laughing at my dog trying to get crumbs out of an empty chip bag. Trust me.. it's entertainment. Other than that, I loved these two toge
This book is one of the delightful surprises that came in my Bookworm Box. I never know what I'm going to get, but because the proceeds go to charitable organizations and help others I subscribe to it.

This book was totally fun to read, full of humor, and just a laid back easy read. I loved Poppy and her (fun) name. I like how she is able to be her own person and doesn't really care what others think. She "meets" Adam (you'll have to read the story to find out how) and she asks him to be her fak

Adam and Poppy are delightful. There was some great hilarious moments and some good sexy times but mostly smart snark.

“He tasted of whiskey and coke, and he smelled like my next big mistake.”

“Kissing him was like flying. Everything else melted away when Adam held my body against his, and our lips came together.”

“You have a smarter mouth than anyone I’ve ever met, and I’m fucked if I know why that’s so attractive to me, but there you go.”

Four Day Fling is the kind of summer romance that I can’t possibly resist. The story-line is fun and entertaining. The characters are a r

Mmmmm kind of disappointed in this one as I didn't think this was anything special. The main character made me crazy and I'll have to say, she's written for a specific set of readers. Not a bad thing but I personally didn't connect to her and her stubborn personality and whacky fashion sense. The fake dating trope was also boring to me. I think I just read too many back to back BIG SIGH. onto the next one. ...more

LOVED this book. Definitely brought me out of my book slump with its humor, snarky and adorable heroine and lovable hero.

Poppy is my new girl crush. She apologetically herself, sarcasm and all. She thinks that asking her one night stand - Adam - to accompany her to her sister's wedding may be the worst idea she's ever had. She definitely thinks it is after she finds out her whole family knows who he is already: a famous hockey player.

Her family defines the word "overbearing", especially her mo
The title predicted my rating! Another really fun and sweet book and I had such a blast reading this. The cover looks amazing, the story is cute and funny, there’s a hockey dude involved,... what more can I ask for? Poppy is a girl I could be friends with and she turned out quite normal for coming out of a family of complete nutjobs (I adore her dad). She is amazing and should give herself more credit.

My only complaint was the multiple typos and errors. At one point Adam Winters turns into Adam

3.5 stars.

“I never claimed I wasn’t sarcastic myself. Actually, I think you bring it out in me. Is it infectious?” “No. It’s a language for smart people. It’s how we confuse the idiots.”

Let's just got to the punch line, there is no other way to get it over with... As much as I loved the idea of the plot, romance and the sarcasm, I simply disliked the heroine and her mean mouth. Yes, I understand she doesn't like people or respects her mother, but it doesn't mean she has to be snarky to everyone.

“Feelings. I had feelings for Adam Winters, and they needed to shut up and get back in their box where they belonged.”

You can NEVER go wrong with an Emma Hart romantic comedy! FOUR DAY FLING is her latest rom-com and I couldn’t have been more delighted to dive in! With already a pretty long list of charming, sexy, sweet, and HILARIOUS books in the genre already, Emma has shot up my list of favorites in no time at all. She gives us this perfect blend of romance and comedy each and every time,
