About The Best Man:

Veronica Webber is single again after being in a loveless marriage way past its expiration date. For the first time in a very long time, she feels free and after being burned so badly by love in the past, any thought of romance is the last thing on her mind. In walks a man from her past, Trevor Allen, a tall, dark, and handsome womanizer who is usually all about the bottom line. For Trevor that bottom line has always been made up of the countless notches on his bedpost. But when he sees Veronica after so many years, he can’t help but be drawn to her and know her again… even if that means being friend-zoned from the start. As this unlikely pair spends more and more time together, they quickly realize that there might be something between them that goes past "just friends." But there’s just one tiny detail that makes this situation slightly more complicated… Trevor was Veronica’s ex-husband’s best man at their wedding nine years ago. So when past mistakes and indiscretions come back to haunt them, will their happily ever after end before it even gets started? Or will the best man win this time.

Veronica and Trevor had an interesting story. I really liked that the forbidden aspect of it was both in the past and also impacting their current relationship. Usually, the forbidden is no longer an issue once enough time has passed or the situation changes...but in this case, it is still there years later.

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.
