Title: THE BEST MAN
Author: Barbie Bohrman
Genre: Contemporary romance
About The Best Man:
Veronica and Trevor have a past. He was the best man at her wedding...and now that the marriage has fallen apart, there is an attraction there that they are able to pursue. But, they both question if it is ok, or if maybe it is not appropriate as there was such a history.
I liked the idea that in order to pursue it, they had to decide that their past was less important than what they wanted for their future. I liked that a lot of the book was their building of their friendship, that they started here and built from there.
I thought there was a little too much drama with the ex, and I thought that it really detracted from the central relationship especially when it finally became a more-than-friends connection. I thought there was a little too much time spent with the ex and that it hindered the development of their romantic relationship. I also thought the revelations from the past were not really necessary as there was enough issue with just the idea that she had to learn to trust, and then fall in love, with the best man of her ex husband.
The writing was strong, the characters were believable. The pacing was overall good, with just the issue with the ex detracting from the overall story.
I recommend this book.
