From USA Today and Amazon Charts bestselling author Meghan Quinn, comes a witty take on a romantic comedy classic, My Best Friend’s Wedding. Steamy, laugh-out-loud, and full of charm, these two best friends heat up the pages while proving true love might be right in front of you.

Have you ever heard of a man-in-waiting?

Yeah, neither has my best friend’s soon-to-be monster-in-law. Ooo, sorry, I meant mother-in-law. Nor has she heard of the term, what the bride wants, the bride gets.

With wedding planning underway and a short timeline, my best friend, Lia, has recruited me to help her battle the snarly beast that is Mrs. Beaver. Not scared at all, I accept the challenge as her man-in-waiting–aka, man of honor–and take matters into my own hands. 

The only problem is, with every second we draw closer to the wedding, I’m starting to see my best girl in a different light.

She’s always been beautiful to me, but now . . . I find myself staring a touch too long. My hand lingering for one more minute. And when she’s upset? Allowing her to sleep in my bed.

And before I know what’s happening, it hits me like a ton of bricks. I’m in love with my best friend. Not just in love, but infatuated. 

No one compares to her and nothing seems to distract me from that realization.

Not the girl I try to date while I help plan Lia’s wedding. 

Not her angry fiancé who thinks I’m growing too close. 

And not the looming deadline of her nuptials.

Which means, there’s only one thing left for me to do. Prove to Lia I’m the one she should be with instead. But with the pressure of her engagement, the stress from her soon-to-be mother-in-law, and the breath-stealing nerves running through me, I’m finding it a lot harder to claim the girl than I would like to admit. 

Say a little prayer for me . . .

Well, hello Breaker Cane! It’s so nice to finally get your book!

I hate playing favorite Meghan Quinn characters, but Breaker might have just stolen the crown from his brothers in this series. He was geeky goodness and the best of friends…until he was more. I adored that he fell first. Breaker being there for Lia when she needed help with wedding stuff was hilarious. Their friendship was special, and I couldn’t wait for them to figure out that they needed more. And once they did, it was Meghan Quinn magic all the way.

Obviously, Lia has a fiancé when this book starts. I’m not going to spoil what goes down, but I am going to say for anyone curious that there’s no cheating. Things progress in a natural, authentic way between Breaker and Lia. This book wasn’t filled with angst or much anguish. (Well, maybe a little on Lia’s part.) It was a really fun, right kind of drama romance.

I loved this friends to more romance. Meghan Quinn shines when it comes to writing romantic comedies. A Long Time Coming was so much fun! She made me smile and laugh so much. I couldn’t get enough of this book. I am hoping we get connected book for the Cane brothers’ friends Banner and Penn soon!

“I think about you every second of every day, Lia. I want you more than I’ve ever wanted anything in my life.”

  1. Sounds like a fun series. And while I love a friends to more and this premise seems interesting, I’m glad there’s no cheating. I’m always nervous in stories like this, I hold my heroes to a high standard, lol.

    1. It really was! And I’m the same way. I don’t like cheating, so I was a little worried going in. But I knew MQ wouldn’t do us wrong.
