THE BEST MEN by Bestselling authors Sarina Bowen and Lauren Blakely is NOW LIVE!! Don’t miss out on this enemies-to-lovers, opposites-attract, irresistibly sexy standalone romance between the best man and the other best man!
In my defense, I was left alone with a bottle of single-malt and a life-long penchant for protecting my baby sister. Still, that's no excuse to send ten drunk-texts on why her hasty marriage would be a mistake. If only I had just texted my sister. But nope. I accidentally sent the message to her, her groom, and his super hot wingman. I also used the phrase “super hot wingman,” so I’d like to die now. Instead, I have to plan a wedding with the aforementioned hottie and share a too-small guesthouse in steamy Miami. Three days in the sun with the cocky, charming former athlete who likes to push my buttons? Fine, two can play at that let’s-infuriate-each-other game. Until Asher ups the stakes with one wildly sexy suggestion. A no-strings fling, then I go back to my single dad life in New York, and he returns to his star-studded one. Sign me up. But the more nights I spend with the other best man, the more I want days too, and that just can't happen. Especially when I find out the real reason why… Contents Include: First times, a secret to-do list, champion-level flirting, fast cars, #eggplants, and two men who look good in formal wear.
I know it's January but hear me out. The Best Men was my most anticipated book of 2022. The thought of two of my all time favorite, one click no matter what, authors writing a book together??? Talk about a dream come true!!!!! I cannot rave about this book or recommend it enough. This story had everything-amazing banter, off the chart heat, and full to the brim with emotion. I was hooked from the first line and I KNOW you will be too.
I get Mark Banks. Completely, totally, 100% understand this man. I adored the way he tackled tasks-and let's just say a certain spreadsheet had me grinning like a fool. He's loyal, kind, determined and sexy as all get out when given the opportunity. I fell in love with him right from the start and LOVED watching him grow throughout the book.
Ah, Asher. I had the pleasure of meeting Asher before in both Sarina Bowen's work and in an earlier Lauren Blakely release. That's what set my spidey senses tingling...and hoping for a collab between these two. But anyway, back to Asher. Asher is the total opposite of Mark. He's an open book in a sense. He's a little more scattered than Mark, though he tries hard not to be. Sexy as sin, funny as hell with a sweet side to boot. That's Asher to me. I loved getting to know more of him in this book-there were so many moments he made me sigh.
When you put these two together you'd think they'd be oil and water-and you couldn't be more wrong. These two are more like a powder keg and a match! There's an undercurrent between these two that is palpable from the start. Their first kiss? INCREDIBLE and so perfect for them. (I have a thing for first kisses lol) Watching these two discover each other and understand each other outside of the bedroom was amazing and so well done. But their sexy times??? Off. The. Charts.
The writing here just took me away to another world. I was right there with Mark and Asher (no complaints there LOL) and I loved every moment of it. The supporting characters here were so relatable (well, aside from Flip's parents) to me. Like Mr. and Mrs. Banks could be my mom and dad-or any of my friend's parents. I loved the relationship between Mark/Hannah/Asher/Flip. The dynamics there hit just right. I also loved Rosie. There are lots of people who introduce child characters and then just kind of put them on the back burner. That's not the case here. I loved seeing how all of these people interacted with Mark and Asher.
Now I was VERY lucky to also have an early audio copy of this. If you're a fan of audiobooks GET this. If you're not sure you'd enjoy an audiobook?? GET THIS. Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan truly bring these characters to life. I'm going to confess that I have already relistened to this...twice. It's that good. The nuances they bring to these characters showcase why they are two of my all time favorite narrators.
Run, do not walk, run to get your copy of The Best Men!! These men stole my heart from the very first line. This story is perfection from start to finish and I cannot recommend it highly enough. This isn't just my favorite book of the month-it's one of my favorite books I have EVER read.
Narrated by Teddy Hamilton & Jacob Morgan!
