Read on for my thoughts on May The Best Man Win. No true spoilers, promise.
The concept for The Best Men series intrigued me. Four friends, actually rather bro-mantics themselves, always seem to end up in the wedding parties of friends until they find their own true love. Number one I love a good romance, and Number two I adore guys who are such good friends that they almost make a cute couple (of the oppositely interested sex, that is). The series has all the elements that I search for – and I’m looking forward to the continuation of this series.
On the other hand, May The Best Man Win, turned out to be a good book for me. That 3 star rating, means a good book. I didn’t love this couple, and although I was annoyed by them I didn’t hate them either. I understood that they had a “might have been” back in high school and that trust had been broken without any mending. They went their separate ways only being reunited, so to speak, when their mutual friends got together for gatherings or weddings. So this one had all the makings of an enemies to lovers romance. I wish it would have worked for me. It didn’t, not through any fault of the characters or the author – I simply got tired of their constant back and forth, yes then no, maybe or I don’t know… it simply was too much for my particular taste in romance. I could say what might have worked for me, and has in other stories, but that’s beside the point – this is the story I was given. I enjoyed Jase and Emily up to a point and that’s good enough for a “good book rating” for me. I will pick up the next story in the series, mainly because I’m curious now and I intend to know what happens next among the guys.
