Emily Harper’s latest book, My Sort-of, Kind-of Hero, is about Etty, a not-so-successful romance author. She decides to change things a bit for her next novel. She wants to follow someone, the perfect hero for her book, to observe him falling in love so she can write a realistic romance. Once she realizes that her lifelong friend, Travis, could be the perfect subject for her book, she tries to convince him to let her follow him around. He reluctantly agrees. However, things don’t turn out the way she expected. First off, why is he talking about things that women definitely wouldn’t be interested in? And why is he choosing these women who are clearly all wrong for him?

I had the pleasure of reading Emily Harper’s Checking Inn, so I jumped at the chance to read this one. Harper has done it again. I adored the first half of this book, and I didn’t think it could get any better. I was wrong. I practically had this ridiculously huge grin plastered on my face throughout the entire second half of the book. I’m surprised my cheeks aren’t sore from all the smiling. Etty, with her over-analyzing and speaking-before-thinking ways, is a completely relatable character, and Travis, her funny, sweet, and protective best friend, is someone we all wish we had in our lives. And I absolutely loved their relationship. From their competitive nature with each other to his willingness to do anything for her, I just wanted to read more and more about them. My only complaint, which isn’t really a complaint, is that I wish it were longer. Thank you, Emily Harper, for writing My Sort-of, Kind-of Hero, which I know I will find myself reading over and over again.
