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.

Steam-level: A gradual heat up until toasty warm
The Best Man was fun, well-written and funny and I found myself smiling throughout. I liked the character development of both Trevor and Veronica. Trevor was an arrogant jerk who didn’t do relationships and Veronica was still licking her wounds from her nasty marriage and divorce. In the end both had to learn to trust and put themselves out there for their relationship to work. Barbie Bohrman does a great job in portraying the difficulties of taking that plunge and the risks of doing so. I also enjoyed the secondary characters – Veronica’s friend Caroline and Trevor’s brothers. Since neither Veronica nor Trevor are close to their parents, Bohrman shows the importance of friendship, making your own family and being loyal to the ones you love. Overall a very good book that I enjoyed reading. If you like your romances with a healthy dose of funny and the friends-to-lovers slow-build then The Best Man is for you.
I received this book for free from the author. This is my honest, voluntary review.
Favorite Quote: Because you could dress someone up for the part, but that wouldn’t hide the asshole that raged underneath all those nice closes. That person would eventually show through in some fashion.
