The latest standalone novel from bestselling author Katy Evans.

When the wedding of your dreams is just around the corner, everything needs to go as planned. Only problem is, the groom didn’t get the memo.

Aaron forgot the rings, and Lia is determined to make the long drive home to get them in time for their “I do’s.”

But there’s a catch. There always is with Aaron, isn’t there?

Aaron is too hungover to come, and sends a replacement.

The best man.

Miles Foster. The cocky, arrogant, sexy best manand the last person Lia wants to be trapped in a car with for hours.

But Aaron insists, and Lia wonders if there’s another reason Aaron wants Miles tagging alongaside from sticking her with a hot, surly babysitter.

Yet how bad can it be? It’ll be over before she knows it, and she’ll never see him again. Just like in college.

But when secrets are revealed, and Lia’s whole world is turned upside down, she realizes she’s been living a lieand so has her groom.

Miles is supposed to be the best man at her wedding.

But what if he is simply the best man she has ever known? The best man for her?

We're at a fancy resort in Colorado. Lia is getting married to Aaron tomorrow.
But after a very long and drunken bachelor night, the idiot groom suddenly remembers that he forgot the rings back home. Lia decides to leave the guests to their spa day to drive the five hours to Denver. Aaron sends his best friend Miles along.
Lia can't stand Miles - and vice versa.
There was this one drunken night five years ago ...
Plus also ... it's supposed to start snowing any time now!



I really enjoyed reading this.
We immediately realize that Aaron is so not the right guy for Lia. We want Miles!
But they hate each other ... right??
The drive to Denver is pretty uneventful, but on the way back we get some very interesting moments!
This was a really fun and adorable snow-road-trip-adventure-second-chance-kind-of-rom-com!
I loved it. It was not really all that long and you kinda know from the first pages what is going to happen, but I enjoyed reading it. It was a cute romance! Lia was a bit (okay, a lot!) ridiculous and I wanted to hit her over the head with my kindle multiple times - why is she still with that guy???? Ugh, I would've kicked him out the door 4 years and 363 days ago! Jeez.
It was a cute romance with cute moments, but there was a lot missing. It felt like Katy wanted to write a quick & cute rom-com but she got lost between novella and novel and it's not either of those things. It could've/should've had more depth and just more of everything!
What was it with mentioning the mafia at all? I would've expected some kind of exciting crime thing to happen to them. And Lia's brother? He also seemed interesting, maybe he'll get his own book...
Also ... 500 wedding guests??? And all in one little Colorado lodge? Royal weddings don't have that many guests ... a bit weird!☺

But I really loved Miles!☺ He was the best part of the book. A kind of detective Monk hottie! ☺

BEST MAN was an adorable,  sexy & funny & sad snowy-road-trip-wedding love story! Run to your nearest amazon for your own Miles! This one is mine! 

ARC received for an honest review

I wasn't expecting Best Man to turn up on my Kindle, however I dived right in when I saw it.

Now, I have adored all the Katy Evans, this one - not so much.

We can tell right from the get go that the fiancé is a douchenugget - which is fine, he is what he is.

I adored Miles - the best man - right away.  You get the feels right away that he is not what he is made out to be.

However, my problem in this story is our leading lady Lia.

Oy, what a doormat!  I get you love the guy, however why, why, why do you let him treat you the way he does?  Why go back?  Heck, even as things evolve in the time of this story, you know but what, you don't care? Don't give AF?  I really don't understand you at all.

It made you really unlikable, and if it wasn't for Miles, I think I would have given up on this one - sorry Ms Evans.

 If you can get over Lia's lack of backbone, you will probably enjoy this more than me.
