Breaking Up with Barrett is the first of six books about the Philadelphia-based, wildly-handsome English brothers who are all on the look-out for love.

(Except Alex. He's a womanizing manwhore. And maybe Stratton, because he's wicked hot, but super awkward around girls.)

Barrett English, aka "the Shark," is the fair-haired, first-born of the English brothers, and the CEO of the oldest, most prestigious investment banking firm in Philadelphia. He rules the boardroom with an iron fist, refusing to take no for an answer and always getting his way.

Emily Edwards, a first-year doctoral student at the University of Pennsylvania, grew up in the gatehouse on the outskirts of Barrett's childhood estate. The daughter of his family's gardener and housekeeper, she was always looking through the window of privilege, but forced to remember her place at the very periphery of the kingdom.

When business partners suggest that a fiancee might soften Barrett's image over business dinners, he approaches Emily for the "job" of fiancee. And while love wasn't necessarily on Barrett's radar, he begins to realize that Emily always has been. But will his take-no-prisoners boardroom tactics work on the heart of the woman he loves?

*All books in The English Brothers series are approximately 200 pages. The RWA classifies this as "Mid-length Contemporary Romance."

  • Breaking up with Barrett (The Blueberry Lane series )

    By Tiger7536
    This book was one of my all time favorites. It took only 2 days for me to read. I could not put it down. I am absolutely 100% on board with this author! Detailed each character with a story of their on but at the same time keeping focus on Emily and Barrett. A must read...... can't wait to start book #2 of the series. Thanks so much for this series, absolutely love it!
  • Great story line

    By BornMoody
    I love how the author makes a clichè sounding story into its own story. In most books its a wealthy business driven man a quiet, shy virgin and then they end up in love, with Breaking Up With Barrett you dont feel that way & I can't wait to read Fitz's story!
  • Cute!

  • Ok read

    By MizSunshine35
    This was just ok. Nothing mind blowing quick summer read
  • Nice story

    By Grammarguru
    Although predictable, the storyline was good. The explicit sex scenes detracted from the sweet nature of the relationship. The book needed better editing - there were several words that were either misspelled or just plain wrong.
  • Great!
