Funny Guy by Emma Barry

Are Sam’s feelings for Bree just funny business? Or is their smoldering attraction the real deal?

From the author of Chick Magnet comes a heartfelt friends-to-lovers story about what can happen when a funny guy and his childhood best friend are stuck together in a small New York City apartment.

Sam can’t escape the smash hit “Lost Boy” because, well, he is the lost boy. His pop-singer ex immortalized him in a song about his childish ways, and now his comedy career is on the line.

At least he still has Bree, his best friend and confidante. Bree has always been there for Sam, but she’s never revealed her biggest secret: she’s in love with him. To help herself move on, Bree applies for her dream job across the country—and doesn’t say a thing to Sam.

But as Sam tries to resuscitate his career, he turns to Bree for support—and maybe more. In the confines of her tiny apartment, they share a different dynamic. A charged dynamic. But she’s his friend. He can’t be falling for her.

Except he is.

Are his feelings for Bree just funny business? Or is their smoldering attraction the real deal?

I love reading a friends-to-lovers story, but this one seemed to have something missing from the start.

Sam was a comedian who was not good with relationships except the one he had with Bree, his best friend.

Bree is a successful young woman who has loved Sam for many years. She has finally seen that Sam will not love her back when he proposed to the pop singer. When they break up, Sam runs to Bree. She can't handle much more so she decides to change jobs and move away from the city.

When Sam finally realizes that Bree is the love he has been looking for, he seems to be struggling with what to do next.

I liked Bree to a point, she was hung up on her love for Sam (I can totally relate) and all but stopped her life until she finally said to herself, no more. Sam needed to let his past go (I know, not that easy) so he can move on and live.

I found the story to be good but there weren't many funny parts that I would call it a funny romance. It was an okay story for me.
