The Rule Breaker was my first book by Cat Carmine and boy am I so glad that I decided to give it a chance because I really liked it! The writing was amazing and the character development was on point! This story kept me engaged until the end and it was easily read in one sitting.

Emma is a perfectionist. Her sister even calls her Emma The Perfect (she takes it as a compliment)! She is a blogger/advice columnist/author. She is single but she has written a book that is a guide to dating and relationships. She is at her first signing, when she meets Tyler. Tyler is actually Tyler Grant. He’s a former trust fund drifter/party guy that has been named the CEO of Good Grant Books, which is the publisher of Emma’s book. Emma and Tyler are very different from each oth

This is the follow up to The Deal Breaker and a solid, sexy read. Emma is introduced in the first book as Rori’s sister and “Emma the Perfect”. She has exacting standards and opinions on proper behavior and manners that has earned her a role as an advice columnist and now a new author. Her new book 'Miss Emma's Rules for Dating: A Guide to Modern Relationships' is about to be launched and she meets Tyler Grant, who just happens to be the CEO of her publishing company.

***ARC Provided by the Author***

I enjoy books where one of the characters grows and learns that maybe, just maybe, the way they have seen the world isn't exactly the way things really are, or how they should be.

Tyler and Emma meet in a bar. And, they have hot, quick, dirty sex in the bar's bathroom...and they never see each other again.

Wait, nope. That's not what happens. In fact, Tyler is the publisher of her new dating advice book. You know, the book that says, among other things, not to have

I truly enjoyed reading this book. Emma is a perfectionist and Tyler is a rule breaker but together they make it work. This book will make you laugh and make you swoon. I really enjoy this series and characters and hoping maybe Logan & Blake will get a story since Logan needs an assistant & Blake just moved too the city.

I voluntarily reviewed this Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

Cat Carmichael is a new author for me and I immediately purchased The Rule Breaker after finishing book one, the Deal Breaker. I personally like stories where characters continue because as a reader you become invested in them and want to learn more. I also like that this book takes place after the first book and is not written in the same time period and I like to know what happens to next to Rori and Wes!

The Rule Breaker is aptly named as it is about a writer, Emma Holloway, who seems to be a

When the perfect good girl Emma meets bad boy Tyler, and he convinces her to break some of her steadfast rules, who knew it would change her life? Certainly not Emma. She's a sweet, but staid advice columnist turned first time novelist who's at her book's launch party at a bar when an absolutely divine man sits next to her at the bar and flirts with her. When her wine somehow ends up on her shirt instead of in her mouth where it belongs, that divine man follows her to the bathroom to offer her h ...more

Oh boy, Ms Carmine with this superb read made me LOL so many times, this amazing book is the perfect comedy romance and I highly recommend this magnificent read! My first read of a Cat Carmine book and for sure I will be reading many more. Emma Holloway is at her first book launch at Veneer a bar in Manhattan, she is so nervous as she has to do a reading from her book called “New Dating Advice”. All about the rules of dating which she manages to break most of the rules throughout! Sh

Oh my stars, this book was so much fun! Emma is Miss Perfect - proudly so - and she's just launching her first book, a set of rules for dating that are perfectly suited to her perfectly ordered life.

But then Tyler walks in, and all her perfect composure takes a hike.

Not five minutes after Tyler makes her forget all about her rules and her book, she's up on stage, hilariously reading from the one chapter that reminds her of just how far she's fallen! This is just the start to a hilarious string

What a fun way to break the rules!! Great story between Emma Holloway, the "perfect" sister and Tyler Grant wanderlust playboy. Advice columnist Emma learns breaking all her rules about dating with the CEO of her publishing house can be fun but embarrassing afterwards!!!

I was skeptical first, how likable Emma would be, perfect sister to her siblings, writes kind of a stuffy advice column which she's turned into a book. Through an accidental meeting at the bar where her book reading is going to t

This review is for an ARC and is my unbiased, honest opinion.

This book was adorable!!! It had romance, love, ups and downs, steamy moments, moments of finding yourself, etc. It was just everything tied up into a cute, little story!! I loved these characters so much. I wish they were real so we could all be besties!! I won’t even try and steal Tyler away from Emma, although let’s be honest….he’s quite the catch!!

Emma thinks she has life all figured out. She thinks she has the guide to living life

I really enjoyed this easy going, sweet, romantic and addictive story. Along with a really interesting story which was laced with humour, along with the romance, I caught myself smiling so many times whilst reading this book.

What we have here is a bad boy who is a bit of a player with a good heart. He is smart, rich and happens to meet a really good conservative girl who just happens to be an author at his publishing company, What they discover about each other along the way is at times hilario

I wanted to give this book a better rating but it was so bleh for me. I really didn’t like this Emma character. I mean I didn’t like her in any of he other books either so I had to make myself read this book to complete the series.

Emma is picture perfect (yawn) and she ends up having a rendezvous with Tyler Grant in the women’s bathroom before her book signing. Although she didn’t know who he was. And she wrote a book about dating advice (double yawn) and then goes against every rule she has wr

I enjoyed reading Tyler and Emma’s story. Breaking the rules is always fun and it seemed like these two were definitely enjoying themselves while doing it. This story can be read as a complete stand alone.

Tyler is a little bit of a playboy, he is not one to take life all that seriously. That was until he is given something he truly didn’t see himself wanting at first. But sometimes things we think are not for us actually grow on us.
Emma is ‘perfect’. Well she likes to think she is perfect. Eve

What kind of book can you expect from a title like The Rule Breaker? A whole lot of fun, sexiness while rules fly out the window and passion soars!

What a hilariously funny read!

Emma has just published a book about the rules of dating through Tyler's family publishing company. These rules enable Emma to play it safe when it comes to dating and in the rest of her life. Instant attraction between them and a spilled drink leads Tyler to help her break one of her rules. From that point on, Emma is a goner and finds herself constantly breaking her rules with him. For the first time ever, playing it safe doesn't feel right.

Cat Carmine writes contemporary romance and romantic comedy. She also happens to like drinking wine, eating cake, buying too many books, and snuggling with her elderly cocker spaniel (oh, and her husband too.) She loves — and writes — books with sweet and sarcastic heroines and strong, sexy heroes who like a little bark with their bite. She thinks witty banter is the best kind of foreplay, and she ...more
