Emma Hart’s Best Served Cold ARC Review

I want to thank Emma Hart and Social Butterfly PR for the advance e-copy of Best Served Cold. 

Best Served Cold is out today!!

From GoodreadsRevenge is a dish best served cold.
Which is a real problem when the attraction runs red-hot.

Ice-cream store owner Raelynn Fortune has everything but her last name—fortune.

Despite living in a Floridian hotspot for tourists, she just can’t get her business back off the ground. And she knows why.

Her rival store next door is run by nobody other than her ex, and with his fancy-schmancy concoctions, he’s taking all the clients two generations of her family cultivated. Never mind that Raelynn taught him all he knows, and his revenge for her breaking up with him was putting her plans into reality—and her almost out of business.

But, she has a plan. The height of the season is just two weeks away, and she’s tired of playing second fiddle to her ex. She’s going to take back her crown as the queen of ice cream, even if it means getting close to Chase once again.

After all, all is fair in love and war, and you know what they say about keeping your enemies close…

Although maybe Chase is a little too close…”

In the last year, I have indulged in a few previous novels from Emma Hart. The majority of those books I gave four stars (with the exception of Four Day Fling my favourite Emma Hart I’ve read so far), but Best Served Cold is a definite five stars! I loved it.

Below I break down my review into the components I value most in my reading experience:

  • Characters: I loved Raelynn as a protagonist. I really think she thought like the average young woman does, except for her poor social media skills. That was just a hilarious quirk. Chase was a great love interest. I especially appreciated having his point of view every few chapters. It allowed for the reader insights into why he did what he did.
  • World/Setting: The story is set in Key West, Florida. It allowed for the irony of Raelynn’s ice cream shop failing, a failing ice cream shop in Florida!
  • Pacing: The pacing on this one was perfect. It never felt too short, or like it was dragging on for way too long.
  • Romance (yay or nay?): I never site the angst as the reason why I enjoyed the romance. In this story, the character’s push and pull poor communication, and awkward run-ins only added to the journey of them falling in love again.
