REVIEW ➞ Man For Me by Laurelin Paige


From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Laurelin Paige comes a new story in her Man In Charge series…

Brett Sebastian is the very best kind of friend.

Who else would get me a job at one of the biggest corporations in America?

And hook me up with his uber-rich cousin to boot?

And let me cry on his shoulder every time said cousin blows me off?

Okay, it’s pretty obvious that Brett cares about me in a different way than I do for him, but he seems fine with how things are, and our friendship works.

Until one fateful night when I’m mooning over his cousin, and Brett utters four words that should make me happy for him, should make me relieved, should balance out our uneven relationship:

“I met a girl.”

Suddenly my world is crashing down around me, and I’m forced to ask myself—am I only interested in Brett now that he’s taken?

Or have I been looking at the wrong man all along?

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Even after years of knowing him, I wasn’t immune to his looks. The only reason I hadn’t chased after him was because he wasn’t running.


Brett and Eden have been best friends for ten years. The man is a saint. He was there for Eden through her ups and downs when it comes to men, even his own cousin. He also has had feelings for her, but never once acted upon them. He felt like the lesser Sebastian and Eden did nothing to prove otherwise. Eden never felt Brett was good enough for her, she never even bothered to try something with him. They had a great friendship so why ruin it?

I loved Brett and Eden’s story so much. I loved the friendship between the two of them and I loved the chemistry and tension that they had from the start. It was great to see how everything progressed for them, whether it be good or bad.

Despite being a novella this story packs in the heat and the swoon. It was perfection from page one!

If you’re looking for a best friends to lovers romance this is one to read.
