Book Review: The Best Man Wins by Adora Crooks

It’s a battle to the final I do . . .

He was supposed to be a simple one-night-stand to get over my ex.

He ticked all the boxes: smoking hot stranger, eyes as dark as his sense of humor, and no strings attached. He took me up to his room and made me forget all about my heartbreak.

But when my wedding planning company assigns me my next case, I find myself face-to-face with my hot stranger yet again.

His name? Braxton West.

His role? The groom’s best man.

His mission? To break up the couple before they say their vows.

A billionaire like Braxton West, I’m sure, is used to getting what he wants.

But he’s going to have to get cozy with failure, because I won’t let anything or anyone ruin this perfect wedding.

Even if he is making it hard to tear my eyes away from his bulging…biceps

Can I keep this wedding on track…and stop myself from falling victim to a Braxton distraction…?

This is a fun premise so I was excited to read this story. I’m a sucker for a good wedding planner story but Braxton wasn’t my favorite. I really liked Susie at first and wanted to like him, but he’s very stiff and closed off. I didn’t feel like I knew him much better at the end than I did when he was introduced, which makes it tough to get into the story. Susie was sweet and fun, but a huge pushover, so much so that she became frustrating. I’m not big on helpless doormats as heroines but she couldn’t stand up to her ex or her backstabbing friend. I was hoping to see her toughen up and start putting people in their places but it never happened.

I didn’t completely hate it but the characters just weren’t likeable enough for me to care.
