REVIEW ➞ The Best Men by Lauren Blakely and Sarina Bowen


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.

Every goddamn cell of that spreadsheet is going to be kissed and licked and boinked into oblivion. The program will probably crash before we’re through.


Mark is a single dad, he didn’t have the best luck when it came to his marriage. He doesn’t do well with change, he likes things to go according to plan and the man loves his spreadsheets. Asher is a photographer, he doesn’t do relationships and just likes to have fun. These two men are complete opposites of each other.

I loved the chemistry between Mark and Asher. They are so different, yet I love that they both embrace each other. Not hard to do when there is a strong attraction for each other. The banter between the two of them is on point and had me laughing so many times throughout their stories.  

This story was just a fun, low angst, steamy, laugh out loud story with two characters that are so easy to fall in love with.

If you’re looking for a MM, single dad, opposites attract, rom com this is one to read!
