Today on The Book Lovers, Emma will be sharing her top 5 females characters she has written!
Her past is wrought with demons.
His past is full of heartbreak.
Yet he’s the one person that can remind her what it means to live.
Abbi Jenkins never thought she would leave the walls of the mental institution that’s housed her for the last year. Now she has, but that doesn’t mean she’s forgotten everything Pearce put her through.
She knows there’s only one way to deal with the depression that claws at her mind each day, and ballet becomes more than a hobby, a dream. Ballet – and Julliard – becomes a reason to live. Something to hold on for.
Blake Smith left London for one reason and one reason only. Running from the heartbreak of his past was never something he wanted to do, but with constant reminders everywhere he turned, it became his only option. When he arrives in New York City, he vows he’ll keep the promise he made to his sister and get into Juilliard.
But he doesn’t expect to be paired with Abbi in class, the girl whose eyes show a world of pain he’s seen before. Pain he knows too well. As each hour they spend together pulls them closer, Blake can’t fight his need to save her from herself.
Lines blur as their pasts are wrenched into the open, and they have to ask themselves whether they’re too broken to ever to be fixed, or if they’re the healing the other needs.
Top 5 favourite females I’ve written.
(Umm, Zoe? I hate you for this.)
Glad we got that out of the way.
This is really hard for me because I adore all my girls, so.
1. My favourite female lead is Abbi, from The Right Moves. A huge part of me went into writing her, given my own personal struggle with depression over the last few years. Her story was a journey for both of us, and the strength I admire in her as a character, I can now see in myself. She’s my best book girlfriend, easily.
2. Dayton, from Late Call, coming May 1st. Ah, my call girl. She waited a year for me to write her story, and as I did I discovered she was full of spunk and takes no shit. Aaron might be a demanding rich guy, but she’s strong enough and independent enough to tell him when to stfu. I love it.
3. Roxy, from Worth the Risk, coming May 29th. She definitely picked the wrong path, and I believe her journey in the book is the greatest one of all my characters. She only ever needed someone to believe in her, and when she finds that in Kyle, her growth is astounding. And she is really, really kick ass.
4. Megan, from Playing for Keeps. Her love of books and Mr. Darcy. I think we’re all in agreement on this.
5. Leah, from a secret project. Without giving too much away, she’s strong and determined like the rest of my girls, but also grows in her own way. The biggest thing she learns is not to judge a person by what you hear, and I can’t wait to share her story with you.

By day, New York Times and USA Today bestselling New Adult author Emma Hart dons a cape and calls herself Super Mum to two beautiful little monsters. By night, she drops the cape, pours a glass of whatever she fancies – usually wine – and writes books.
Emma is working on Top Secret projects she will share with her followers and fans at every available opportunity. Naturally, all Top Secret projects involve a dashingly hot guy who likes to forget to wear a shirt, a sprinkling (or several) of hold-onto-your-panties hot scenes, and a whole lotta love.
She likes to be busy – unless busy involves doing the dishes, but that seems to be when all the ideas come to life.
